"This year, we launched four of the Top 10 new shows on broadcast, which led to a very strong roster of young series returning for their sophomore seasons. That gives us tremendous momentum heading into the fall," said Newman and Walden. "With our increased investment in football, we're going to use the powerful platform of the NFL to launch our new comedies. We'll then take some big swings with dramas at midseason, which is a proven strategy for Fox."
The new comedies joining the lineup this fall are Rel and The Cool Kids. Inspired by the life of Lil Rel Howery, Rel is a multi-camera comedy starring Howery as a loving husband and father living in Chicago, who finds out his wife is having an affair, and must rebuild

The first season — a follow-up to the original 1980s series hosted by Sagan — aired back in 2014 on National Geographic and Fox to critical acclaim as well as popular appeal. It ranks as NatGeo’s most watched program ever.
So it was a passion project that Druyan was eager to revisit, having spent the last two years writing the episodes with Brannon Braga. Here, she tells Variety her hopes for the new season, why more women are going into science, and what her late husband would think of series host Neil deGrasse Tyson.
How does the new season compare to the first?
I don’t know because I’m so close to it, but I think it’s more daring, less afraid to feel. The science

Seth MacFarlane has returned to produce the second season and obviously, Tyson will be back to host it. Cosmos is a revival of the Carl Sagan series, and I can't wait to see what kind of crazy awesome cool stuff we'll learn in Season 2!
The networks have ordered a second season of the science documentary television series, which is a follow-up to the 1980s series “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage” with Carl Sagan. Neil deGrasse Tyson, the astrophysicist and host of the Emmy Award-nominated “Star Talk,” returns as host of the series, scheduled to premiere globally in Spring 2019. The announcement was made at the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Saturday.
The series hails from executive producer, writer, and director Ann Druyan, Sagan’s widow and one of the writers on the original 1980s series. She and Steven Soter, another writer from the original show, won the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for Nonfiction Programming in 2014 for the show’s first season. Seth MacFarlane, Brannon Braga, and Jason Clark also serve as executive producers. It will be produced by Cosmos Studios, the Ithaca, NY-based company Druyan co-founded in 2000, and Fuzzy Door Productions, MacFarlane

We’ve hit the halfway mark it this rather excellent crossover series Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War. In last month’s issue [review here] we witnessed the rings choose the remaining new bearers within the Star Trek galaxy, with Yellow having already chosen General Chang. Red picked a bitter, power hungry Gorn called Glocon and Orange settle for a Romulan called Decius, who is tired of feeling chasitised and sick of his people carrying the blame for the destruction of Vulcan.
Lynda Obst and Ann Druyan producing the film, which will be written by “Deadfall” scripter Zach Dean. Plot details are currently under wraps.
Obst was one of the producers of last year’s Christopher Nolan space epic “Interstellar,” starring Matthew McConaughey, and 1997’s “Contact,” which starred Jodie Foster and McConaughey, and was adapted from Sagan’s novel. Warner Bros. teamed with Paramount to release “Interstellar,” which grossed $672 million worldwide.
Druyan, who was married to Sagan from 1981 to his death in 1996, produced and wrote 2014’s “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey,” for which she won an Emmy for non-fiction writing. She was also an executive producer on “Contact.”
Sagan hosted the TV series “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage,” which he narrated and co-wrote during the 1980s, and spent much of his career investigating the possibility of life on other planets. He
The late Carl Sagan is perhaps best known to moviegoers for having penned the book Contact, that Robert Zemeckis adapted into a feature film in 1997. But across his career, Sagan was a noted scientist and author, and in the Us, he hosted the television series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. Cosmos is a show credited with opening up the idea of exploring the universe to a broader audience.
Warner Bros is now working on a biopic of Carl Sagan, and one of its producers will be Ann Druyan, Sagan's widow. Also on board to produce are Courtenay Valenti, Cate Adams, Lynda Obst and Rachel Abarbanell.
As of yet, it's unclear either who's writing or directing the Carl Sagan biopic, and that's before we get to the issue of casting. But as we discover more, we'll let you know.

On an Easter Sunday when ABC preempted “Resurrection” for the Hallmark movie, NBC’s “Believe” averaged a 1.2 rating/3 share in adults 18-49 and 4.7 million viewers overall — winning head to head over “In My Dreams,” which averaged a 1.0/3 in 18-49 and 4.6 million viewers overall for its two hours. While still not good numbers for “Believe,” last night’s demo rating was up 20% (0.2) from the previous week when it faced “Resurrection” on ABC and at a four-week high; “Resurrection” and “Believe” are not that dissimilar in theme, so it makes sense
