The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the second announced yesterday. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on Fox.
While "The Following" proved a breakout winner, Fox had few success stories last season. So, it is going a bit more ambitious this year with numerous dramas, comedies and one-off "event series".
Several pilots didn't make the final cut and won't be seen including the family of government-sanctioned assassins drama "Boomerang," the adaptation of Lauren Oliver's book trilogy "Delirium" about a world where love is illegal, the legal interns workplace comedy "To My Assistant," the U.S.S. Lexington-set "The Wild Blue," and "The List" about the hunt for a thief who stole a file containing the secret identities of people in the Witness Security Program,

Fox has released promos for their upcoming Fall premiering dramas and comedies. Check them out below:
Ichabod Crane is thrust into the present day and the headless horseman follows soon after. Crane soon teams with a cop to stop the spook.
A crime drama about a task force assembled to bring down the most dangerous gangs in Los Angeles.
Comedy about a dysfunctional police precinct with Andre Braugher as the new police chief who has come in to clean things up.

Fox has released the trailers to a bunch of new shows they have coming out in the 2013-2014 season. We've got trailers for the a couple of action thrillers from producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, Sleepy Hollow, and Almost Human with Karl Urban. Then there are a couple comedies that include Brooklyn Nine Nine from Parks and Recreation's Michael Schur, and Seth MacFarlane's live-action sitcom Dads with Seth Green and Giovani Ribisi. I'll give all of these shows a shot, but not all of them look good. Sleepy Hollow looks especially disappointing. Check out the trailers below and let us know which shows you're most excited for!
A modern-day retelling of Washington Irving's classic. The supernatural thriller centers on Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) who is resurrected and pulled two and a half centries through time to find the world on the brink of destruction. »

Fox has one of its better slates coming your way with the new season, especially if you take the midseason shows into account. Some of these shows may not jump out at you now as must-see, but some of them are going to take over, if I’m any judge anyway.
Clear showcase offerings Dads, Almost Human, and Us & Them are guaranteed to take off early. Almost Human has J.J. Abrams recognition to pull people in, though it looks to be a show that could flounder after a few episodes, even if I hope it doesn’t. The other two are going to become hits. Unfortunately, we have to wait until mid-season for the Gavin & Stacey remake.
Rake also looks like a winner, as long as the translation can be made to work as an Americanized product, and the show actually delivers what made the Australian original so brilliant.

Fox President of Entertainment, Kevin Reilly, insisted Monday at the network's 2013 Upfront presentation that the network had hit a successful stride this year with "smart, upscale" comedies. And he was right. "New Girl" has thrived in its second season, and "The Mindy Project" appeals to that upscale (read: wealthy, with disposable income to spend on whims inspired by TV commercial) audience.
But the new comedies that Fox is touting for its Fall 2013 schedule are far from smart and upscale. Instead, they seemed to choose crude, stupid humor (networks like to call this "broad") for their fall launch, saving more nuanced and sweet (and "upscale") comedies like "Surviving Jack" and "Us & Them" for their midseason launch.
Everyone's been looking forward to "Dads" because it comes from comedic mastermind Seth Macfarlane, in his first live-action TV offering. The multicam show stars Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi as successful video game creators whose »
How do you fight a flagging American Idol franchise and ratings that dipped 20% last season? Hopefully, by luring your viewers back with some big names. That’s the latest strategy for Fox, which came out of the upfronts on Tuesday with a lineup that included Andy Samberg, Greg Kinnear, Seth MacFarlane, J.J. Abrams, and Kiefer Sutherland, the latter of whom will return for the miniseries 24: Live Another Day. (Midseason picks include the Chris Meloni comedy Surviving Jack, the Terry O’Quinn drama Gang Related, and M. Night Shyamalan’s miniseries Wayward Pines, which will star Matt Dillon, but trailers »

On Monday morning, Fox unveiled its new 2013-2014 schedule at its upfronts presentation to advertisers, and debuted trailers for many of its new shows, from high-concept dramas "Sleepy Hollow" and "Almost Human" to male-skewing comedies "Dads" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" starring Andy Samberg.
The network also revealed plans for the return of "24" as a limited series titled "24: Live Another Day," and its development of "Wayward Pines" from M. Night Shyamalan, described as an intense, mind-bending thriller in which nothing is what it seems.
Below, find the new promos and descriptions for Fox's new shows, then hit the comments to let us know which shows you're looking forward to most.
"Sleepy Hollow" (Mondays at 9 p.m. Et)
From co-creators/executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the thrilling new action-adventure "Sleepy Hollow" is a modern-day retelling of Washington Irving’s classic. Ichabod Crane (Tom Miso) is resurrected and pulled two and »

From the folks who brought you "Parks and Recreation," the trailer for Fox's new fall comedy, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is here. "Men of a Certain Age's" Andre Braugher plays the straight man against one of the more promising comedic casts on the Fall TV grid.
Andy Samberg ("Saturday Night Live") plays Jake Peralta, and Terry Crews ("The Newsroom," "Are We There Yet?"), Melissa Fumero ("One Life to Live"), Joe Lo Truglio ("Burning Love," "Reno 911") and Chelsea Peretti ("Kroll Show," "Parks and Recreation") round out the talent list.
It appears the premise of the show can be boiled down to a line delivered' by Crews' character, Terry Jefford, to the new police captain at Precinct 99, Capt. Holt (Braugher). "Jacob Peralta is my best detective," says Crews. "The only puzzle he hasn't solved is how to grow up." This is evidenced by Peralta's refusal to wear a tie around his neck, a secret Speedo that becomes not-so-secret, »
Fox has set Tuesdays at 8:30 pm to air its new cop comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine, this fall. Andre Braugher and Terry Crews co-star, alongside Andy Samberg in the project from Mike Schur/Dan Goor, directed by the co-directors of 21 Jump Street (the movie) - Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The comedy centers on a diverse group of detectives in a New York City police precinct. Samberg plays the lead detective, while Braugher is Captain Holt, described as a 30-year veteran of the New York City police force. Holt has finally gotten his own command and he’s not going to let anyone, especially Samberg’s »

Holt has finally gotten his own command and he’s not going to let anyone, especially Samberg’s character, mess it up. And Terry Crews plays a character named Terry Jeffords, described as "the no-nonsense but father-like sergeant who runs the detective squad." Braugher has had a tough time in TV land. Let's hope this one lasts longer than the last new series he starred in, »

Fox's upfront this afternoon focused on social media, "engagement," and tried-and-true methods — unlike previous years, where the focus was Idol, Idol, Idol. There are new comedies, there are new dramas, there's even a science miniseries. Here's what we learned: 1. We're apparently ready for a nineties-set sitcom. Or so Fox hopes. Chris Meloni will test the waters in Surviving Jack, a comedy a gruff guy attempting to connect with his teenage kids. Featured nostalgia "Good Vibrations," slightly bigger hair and, uh, no Internet. 2. Fox is realllllly into "[something] for a new generation." Kevin Reilly invoked that construct several times throughout the presentation. Cosmos will be (old) Cosmos "for a new generation." Andre Braugher is Lou Grant for a new generation. Gang Related is like "Miami Vice for a new generation." And Meloni is supposedly following in the footsteps of Al Bundy and Bernie Mac as a mean dad »

Following in the footsteps of NBC's Thursday 9:30 slot for "The Michael J. Fox Show," Fox has chosen not to lead-off an hour with what is perhaps its highest profile comedy of the fall. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" will air on Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m. presumably giving a boost to "New Girl" and "The Mindy Project" in an ideal-for-fox world. The police comedy comes from "Parks and Rec" veterans Dan Goor and Mike Schur and was directed by "21 Jump Street" helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The deep cast includes Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews and Joe Lo Truglio. »

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is set at a police precinct and stars Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher.
