Yesterday, Fox unveiled its full 2015-16 schedule, and now the network has unleashed a slew of previews for its upcoming fall and midseason slate, with trailers for Minority Report, Rosewood, Lucifer, The Frankenstein Code, Grandfathered and The Grinder.
Let’s do some first impressions, shall we?
Minority Report is without a doubt the most high-profile freshman drama Fox has going for it. Picking up 10 years after the events of the blockbuster film, it follows a pre-cog who partners with a haunted detective to solve crimes and search for his missing twin brother. The trailer is overstuffed and suffers from some pretty poor-looking acting, but if there’s any semblance of a good story here, Minority Report could surprise. There’s no getting away from how derivative it feels, though, and I’m feeling echoes of Almost Human reverberating through the preview.
I’m just not buying the kind of sunny »

With the 2014-2015 television season winding down, many television fans and channels are looking ahead to the new series that will make their debut over the next television season. Fox is no different, having announced their renewals, cancellations, and new series pickups over the last week, and the network has now released trailers for a number of their new series.
First up is the trailer for the new animated series Bordertown.
From Family Guy’s Mark Hentemann comes Bordertown, a new animated comedy about two families living in a Southwest desert town on the U.S. – Mexico border. The series takes a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America, where the U.S. Census forecasts that by 2017, ethnic minorities will become the majority. Set against this increasingly diverse backdrop, the comedy explores family, politics and everything in between with a cross-cultural wink. Bordertown centers on two clans: the Buckwalds and the Gonzalezes. »

His eternal optimism frustrates the cynical female detective he often works with (played by Jaina Lee Ortiz), but she can’t argue with the results that his unique perspective provides. The project hails from Todd Harthan, whose past TV credits include "Psych" and "Dominion." Chestnut recently inked a 3-picture deal with Sony’s Screen. »

Fox is counting on “Empire” to ignite its 2015-16 season launch of a fall slate that includes a revamped Tuesday comedy lineup and the return of midseason sleeper “The Last Man on Earth” on Sunday. And for the first time since 2002, Fox is also preparing for life after “American Idol” as the venerable talent competition series mounts what the network is billing as its “final season celebration” in January.
The Tuesday shakeup will see three new shows on the night: “Grandfathered,” starring John Stamos, and “The Grinder,” toplining Rob Lowe, paired in the 8 p.m. hour, followed by “Scream Queens,” the comedy-horror romp from Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk that features Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele and Keke Palmer. Tuesday staple “New Girl” will sit out the fall launch in its fifth season in favor of a midseason return with fewer interruptions.
“Empire” returns to the Wednesday 9 p. »

Fox announced the first part of its 2015-16 schedule on Monday (May 11) morning and even though the network has abandoned its annual tradition of revealing two separate schedules, what we already know is full of interesting tidbits. A few highlights before we get down to the night-by-night breakdown: *** "The X-Files" will return with a two night premiere starting after the Nfc Championship on Sunday, January 24. *** "New Girl" is being held for midseason and will air [virtually] uninterrupted in the spring. *** "Empire" will continue to air at 9 p.m., meaning this season's biggest ratings sensation won't be able to serve as a lead-in for anything new, though Fox hopes a halo effect will benefit "Rosewood." *** A Tuesday comedy block featuring Rob Lowe and John Stamos suggests a bit of a demographic shift for Fox. *** Oh and this next season of "American Idol" will be its last. But that's important enough for its own story. »

Update (via Deadline): Fox has added drama The Frankenstein Code, formerly known as Frankenstein, to its fall lineup. The series, executive-produced by The X-Files‘ Howard Gordon, centers on Jimmy Pritchard (Rob Kazinsky), a morally corrupt retired cop given a second chance at life when he is brought back from the dead. Now younger and stronger, Pritchard will have to choose between his old temptations and his new sense of purpose, according to Fox’s press release.
While inspired by Mary Shelley’s novel, the show is obviously not a straight adaptation. It’s written and created by Rand Ravich (Crisis) and also boasts Homeland helmer Michael Cuesta as an exec-producer and director on the pilot.
Orders for a Minority Report series and drama Lucifer are expected soon.
Original: With Fox’s upfront presentation scheduled for May 11, the network has kicked off series commitments with orders for one drama and three comedies. »

Fox added four new shows to their slate for the 2015-2016 television season, with series orders going to the Rob Lowe-Fred Savage comedy The Grinder, the Morris Chestnut-starring Rosewood, the John Stamos-starring Grandfathered, and The Guide to Surviving Life.
The Grinder is executive produced by Nicholas Stoller, with Ground Floor creator Greg Malins signed on as showrunner. The show revolves around Rob Lowe’s character Dean Sanderson, an actor who plays a lawyer on television. When his show comes to an end, Sanderson decides to return to his family’s real-life law firm, considering himself qualified. Fred Savage plays Lowe’s brother, with William Devane and Mary Elizabeth Ellis also co-starring in the series.
Grandfathered hails from The Office‘s Danny Chun, and revolves around John Stamos’ character, »

Not content to let NBC and The CW have the full programming spotlight on the Thursday (May 7) before upfronts, Fox made its first comedy and drama series pickups of the spring. On the comedy side, Fox has given a series order to "The Grinder," starring Rob Lowe, while the Morris Chestnut procedural "Rosewood" is going to series on the drama side. "Rosewood" and "The Grinder" join the Ryan Murphy anthology horror-comedy "Scream Queens," which was ordered straight to series last fall, and the six-episode return of "The X-Files," announced in March. "The Grinder" stars Lowe as an actor best known for playing a beloved TV lawyer. When his hit series comes to an end, he decides to return to his hometown thinking that his TV pedigree makes him qualified to take over his family's law firm. Fred Savage, most recently plying his trade as a prolific TV director, makes his »
