Fox Orders Live-Action Comedy Series ‘Outmatched’ & Animated ‘The Great North’

  • Deadline
Fox has picked up to series live-action family comedy Outmatched (fka Geniuses), from La to Vegas creator/executive producer Lon Zimmet; and animated comedy The Great North from Bob Burgers creator/executive producer Loren Bouchard and the Emmy-winning Fox animated series’ writers/co-executive producers Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux. Both hail from studio 20th Century Fox TV and are co-productions with Fox Entertainment.

The multi-camera Outmached had been a frontrunner among Fox’s four live-action comedy pilots as a possible companion to Last Man Standing (Current companion Cool Kids does not look good for renewal.). While Adam & Eve was never in serious contention, the multi-camera Patty’s Auto and single-camera Richard Lovely had some buzz. I hear Richard aLovely is likely dead though there is a small chance of it being redeveloped. On Patty’s Auto, I hear the pilot is not going forward at the moment, with some suggesting

Three Siblings Get Freaked Out By a Scary Story in This Fun Horror Short Called The Candlelight Witch

I’ve got a great and creepy new horror short film for you to watch today. It’s called The Candlelight Witch and it centers on three siblings who end up telling a scary story to pass the time during a blackout. As you might imagine, the chilling tale proves to be more dangerous than legend.

The short was directed by Becca Flinn-White, and is inspired by the kind of horror that you might see on the series Are You Afraid of the Dark?. The films stars Brooke Sorenson, Presley Richardson, Connor Kalopsis, and Emily Burkart.

I enjoy this kind of stuff and even though the premise is simple, it’s an effectively chilling story. Watch it below and let us know what you think!

Watch: Horror Short 'The Candlelight Witch' from Becca Flinn-White

"It's just a story. It's just a story..." Another chilling horror short film to give you a thrill if you need it. The Candlelight Witch is a new horror short from the filmmakers behind other horror shorts including Your Date is Here and Where Is It and Mikus. Directed by filmmaker Becca Flinn-White, this short is about three siblings who tell a scary story one night that ends up becoming a bit too real. Which is truly one of the worst nightmares when you're a kid. This is suggested for those who love the Are You Afraid of the Dark? series, inspired by that kind of harmless storytelling. Starring Brooke Sorenson, Presley Richardson, Connor Kalopsis, and Emily Burkart. I like these shorts because they're so simple yet still so effective. Thanks to Todd for the tip on this.

File this under: Kid, You'll Never Work in this Town, Again. From October 2015 to September 2016, Jonathon McClendon briefly played a Soras-ed version of Chase Jennings on Days of Our Lives. Hyrum Hansen and Connor Kalopsis previously filled the role. Despite his short time on the NBC soap opera, this fledgling actor is speaking up about his former employer. McClendon says NBC should cancel Days of Our Lives, noting, "52 years is too long," and "I'm watching General Hospital from now on." The irony of those sentiments is, of course, April 1st will mark Gh's 54th anniversary on ABC.In his time at Days of Our Lives, McClendon's character raped Ciara Alice Brady (Vivian Jovanni). Ciara was not only Chase's potential love-interest and temporary step-sister (yes, yuck), she is also the daughter of Dool super couple Bo and

Rob Lowe and Fred Savage have each starred on very successful TV shows that have run for many years. They've also each been on series that have been cancelled. How will The Grinder do in the ratings? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.

The Grinder revolves around Hollywood star Dean Sanderson, Jr. (Rob Lowe) whose TV show was suddenly cancelled.

The series also stars William Devane, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, Natalie Morales, Hana Hayes, and Connor Kalopsis.

Rob Lowe Hams Up His Small Town in New ‘The Grinder’ Teaser (Exclusive Video)

Rob Lowe Hams Up His Small Town in New ‘The Grinder’ Teaser (Exclusive Video)
“Fake it til you make it” is Rob Lowe’s mantra as Dean Sanderson, Jr. in Fox’s new original series “The Grinder.” Lowe stars as a hotshot television lawyer who returns to his hometown and joins his family’s law firm. Unfortunately, Dean lacks several important necessities of being a lawyer — no bar certification, no license to practice law, no experience in a real courtroom and no formal education. Still, this small-screen star is up for the challenge. Fred Savage stars as his brother Stewart. Mary Elizabeth Ellis, William Devane, Natalie Morales, Connor Kalopsis and Hana Hayes also star.

The Grinder Aims For Legal Meta-Show… Sort Of On Fox – Preview

Fox loves a familiar face, and whether that means renewing shows that have been on way too long, or picking up a new show with Rob Lowe and Fred Savage. You can’t blame them, because people, but this one looks like it might have an uphill battle for fans… or it will be brilliant… or both.

In a spin on legal shows that seems to suggest an underlying dislike of legal shows, Lowe plays an actor who was on a show playing a lawyer for several years. With his show finally off the air, he’s moving back home, and his brother (Savage), who is actually a lawyer, can’t stand him.

That sounds like the perfect opportunity for The Grinder to prance around real courts, stealing his brother’s lack of thunder.

Hilarity ensues.

This is a show littered with difficulty, but there is a chance that it could pull everything together.

Fox releases trailers for their 2015-2016 new show slate

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.
