With the upfronts underway, networks have begun releasing first look trailers for their various new shows. Three from Fox seemingly offer a blending of crime procedurals with sci-fi genre elements - a TV series sequel to Spielberg's "Minority Report," the strange looking mystery thriller "The Frankenstein Code," and the comic adaptation "Lucifer" with the latter's quirky sensibility arguably the most effect of the three.
Also out today are new trailers for NBC's mystery thriller "Blindspot" starring "Thor" actress Jamie Alexander, NBC's new high-profile Wesley Snipes series "The Player," MTV's TV series adaptation of the "Scream" franchise, and Netflix's third season of "Orange is the New Black".
The Frankenstein Code
A mind erased. A body of clues. The mystery begins when Blindspot comes to Mondays this Fall on NBC.

The long-arc shows are gaining steam, and it looks as though they are officially the hottest thing in television. NBC‘s fall effort, Blindspot, goes another step further than the usual theme of unraveling threads by kicking off without knowing anything about what’s going on.
In this version of Wtf television, a woman shows up in the middle of Times Square, in a bag, naked, covered in tattoos, and with no memory. The plot of the show? Boom. Go.
As you’ll see in the trailer above, one of the tattoos is an FBI agent’s name, and the hunt is on. Who is she? Why is she there? What happened to her? What’s it all mean?
It’s like a spin on The Blacklist, except that we just get the list, it’s written in clues we have to decipher, and on a person.

As it closes in on its second consecutive season-long victory in the key adult 18-49 demographic, NBC unveils a new 2015-16 primetime schedule that combines popular returning series, edge-of-your-seat new dramas, inventive new comedies and season nine of the Emmy Award-winning musical competition series The Voice. NBC is on track to win the traditional September-to-May primetime season in adults 18-49 for the second year in a row after having gone the prior 10 years without an 18-49 win.

As in the world of film, we’d argue that it’s getting harder to garner hype for a TV series that isn’t a comic book adaptation or a remake/sequel to an already-popular property.
That’s why it’s refreshing to see Jaimie Alexander (Lady Sif from the Thor movies and Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.) teaming up with Greg Berlanti (core writer and producer for Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Legends Of Tomorrow) for something entirely unlike the comic book adaptations they’ve become known for.
Their new show Blindspot is an amnesia thriller, and has been picked up by NBC for a full series this Autumn. Here’s the first trailer…

NBC announced its 2015-16 primetime TV schedule on Sunday (May 10), a schedule that arrived with several key open questions, including: What will get the benefit of "The Voice" lead-in? What can be done to save "The Blacklist" in specific and Thursday in general? Where, if anywhere, will NBC be able to make room for comedy programming? We now have answers to all three questions. There are, in order, "Blindspot," "Heroes Reborn" and Friday. NBC's fall, which will be buttressed, as always, by Sunday Night Football, includes the premieres of three new dramas (four if you consider "Heroes Reborn" to be new) and one new comedy, with only Sunday and Wednesday nights intact. “We’re attacking the new season with the same programming strategy that successfully turned NBC around — a slate of provocative and innovative series and events that cut through the clutter and will continue to build on our momentum, »

It’s sweepstakes time in network TV.
Executives at the Big Four and CW are hip deep in the annual ritual that plays out in darkened screening rooms, as groups of staffers, assembled with focus-group precision to reflect target demos (assistants and interns see a momentary spike in clout), evaluate this year’s crop of pilots in the hopes of finding next season’s big sensation. The sizzle of Fox’s “Empire” has restored the industry’s faith that network TV can still field an overnight sensation. Really, it can.
After a few days of screenings, buzz begins to coalesce around the handful of projects out of 80-plus broadcast pilots that will get a series pickup. But buzz is an unpredictable and volatile mistress. There are innumerable examples of sure things that went south at the last minute (“Beverly Hills Cop” with Eddie Murphy and Shawn Ryan? On the air! »

Greg Berlanti is hot property in the TV world right now. Given the success of Arrow and The Flash at The CW, it’s no surprise that he’s already been working on Supergirl, another potentially-connected superhero show on CBS, and also the Arrow and The Flash’s new team-based spin-off. He also has Blindspot, a new project with Jaimie Alexander, in the works.
Now, there’s been yet another project added to the writer-producer’s mammoth slate – The Infinite Horizon.
The Infinite Horizon is another comic book adaptation, but not a classic superhero story in the vein of Berlanti’s other projects. This comic comes from Image, not Berlanti’s usual inspiration DC. Image is the creator-focused publisher that has produced The Walking Dead, Spawn and the excellent space opera Saga. »
Within a week ahead of the annual TV Upfronts, NBC has come right out of the gate ready to announce three new series that they will be ordering for the upcoming 2015 Fall season. According to The Futon Critic, NBC has given series orders to three new drama pilots: Chicago Med (a direct spinoff from Chicago Fire), a new Greg Berlanti mystery thriller series called Blindspot and an additional medical drama titled Heartbreaker starring Melissa George. NBC has already granted series orders for Jennifer Lopez cop drama Shades of Blue, a sequel series for Coach, Eva Longoria’s comedy Telenovela, and an untitled Jerrod Carmichael comedy.
Chicago Med is an obvious pick up for NBC as it expands the brand of Dick Wolf Chicago television universe that began with Chicago Fire in 2012, followed by Chicago Pd in 2014 and now solidifies connections to Wolf’s other ongoing series Law & Order Svu as »

As broadcast television heads toward upfront week, NBC has announced the addition of three brand new dramas to its slate. Having commissioned 19 pilots, the network already sent Shades Of Blue, Coach and Telenovela straight to series. These projects have now been joined by series commitments for Heartbreaker, Blindspot and Dick Wolf’s Chicago Med.
Chicago Med promises to take audiences into the daily chaos of Chicago’s busiest hospital – focusing on the doctors working within. It fits into Dick Wolf’s successful Chicago franchise, with characters from Chicago P.D and Chicago Fire planned to pass through the sterile hallways of the hospital. Oliver Platt, S. Epatha Merkerson, Laurie Holden, Nick Gehlfuss, and Yaya Dacosta are among the cast of this show that is written by Matt Olmstead, Michael Brandt and Derek Haas. The synopsis clearly sounds like a version of ER made to fit with Wolf’s existing shows, »

Thor and Thor: The Dark World star Jaimie Alexander is moving to the small screen, with NBC issuing a series order for Blindspot, ahead of the network's official upfront presentation later this month. We also have the first photo featuring a nude and heavily tattooed Jaimie Alexander, just moments after she wakes up in a large duffel bag. Take a look at the show's official description below.
"A beautiful Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander) is discovered naked in Times Square, completely covered in mysterious, intricate tattoos with no memory of who she is or how she got there. There's one that's very clear, however: the name of FBI agent Kurt Weller, emblazoned across her back. 'Jane,' Agent Weller and rest of the FBI quickly realize that each mark on her body is a crime to solve, leading them closer to the truth about her identity and the mysteries to be revealed. »
NBC is the first broadcaster out of the gate with its 2015-16 season pickups, ordering to series Chicago Fire spinoff No. 2 Chicago Med, the Greg Berlanti mystery thriller Blindspot and medical drama Heartbreaker (Fka Heart Matters).

“Chicago Med,” which debuted as a planted episode during the April 7 episode of “Chicago Fire,” is the third series in the “Chicago” franchise, following the first spinoff, “Chicago P.D.” The medical drama, starring Oliver Platt, S. Epatha Merkerson, Laurie Holden, Nick Gehlfuss and Yaya Dacosta, centers around the city’s most explosive hospital and the doctors who will tackle new cases inspired by topical events, while forging fiery relationships in the pandemonium of the emergency room. Through the series, cast members from Dick Wolf’s other two “Chicago” casts will make appearances, as the Windy City’s police and fire departments intertwine with the team of doctors.
