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.
With apparently much in common with any of the original efforts on TV Land, and similar vehicles elsewhere (Last Man Standing), the show seems to be after a lighter brand of comedy with a lot of theoretically heartwarming moments.
Stamos plays an over-the-top, aging bachelor who owns a restaurant, and is focused on his business and his free lifestyle. His world is turned upside-down when he learns he not only has a son he never knew about, but he’s suddenly a grandfather as well.
There’s a fair amount of potential, but this brand of comedy could easily go wrong,
"Building on the phenomenal momentum created by Gotham, The Last Man on Earth and, of course, Empire, we're infusing next season's schedule with new ambitious dramas, smart comedies, aspirational unscripted series and big live events and specials - all from the best creators in the business. And our strategy with these bold creative swings is simple: schedule them strategically, market them relentlessly and create events that break through and captivate viewers across every platform."
Tuesdays are all-new this fall on Fox, with new comedies Grandfathered and The Grinder, followed by killer comedy-horror series Scream Queens. The new comedies kicking off an all-new Tuesday are Grandfathered and The Grinder.
Based off the short film “Piece A’ Cake,” “Audrey is a funny female-drive comedy that takes us in real-time over an hour and half of a young woman’s day as she waits and waits and waits in a restaurant for a man to arrive for their critical third date. As time ticks away and Gene is nowhere to be found, Audrey is swept up through her life as her insecurities and inner demons wreak havoc on her. Forced to face her deepest fears by circumstance — both real and hilariously unreal —Audrey finds the strength and courage she never imagined she had.
The film stars Sybil Darrow (“The Cavern,” “The Sweetest Thing”), Ed Quinn (“The Caller,” “ True Blood”), Charles Shaughnessy (“The Nanny,” “Days Of Our Lives”), Jonathan Chase (“Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas,” “Eagle Eye”), Helena Mattsson (“Seven Psychopaths,

Nov. 22, 2013, marks 50 years since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and Warner honors the anniversary with the release of a new version of Oliver Stone’s (Savages) Oscar-winning movie: JFK 50th Commemorative Ultimate Collector’s Edition.
