Fox 2018-2019 Programming Slate Revealed

On Monday, Fox unveiled the network's primetime slate for the 2018-2019 television season during its annual Programming Presentation at the Beacon Theatre.

"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

‘Cosmos’ Ep Ann Druyan on ‘Daring’ Season 2, Climate Change Deniers, and Neil deGrasse Tyson

‘Cosmos’ Ep Ann Druyan on ‘Daring’ Season 2, Climate Change Deniers, and Neil deGrasse Tyson
“Cosmos” is making a comeback — and it’s all thanks to Ann Druyan, Carl Sagan’s widow, who serves as writer and executive producer on the science documentary series.

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

Ratings: ‘The Four’ Hits Enough of the Right Notes for Fox to Finish 2nd

  • The Wrap
“The Four” didn’t hit Thursday night’s solo high note — that would be CBS’ “Big Bang Theory” — but the Fox reality singing competition still started solidly. The new take on an old broadcast genre debuted to a 1.2 rating/4 share in the key 18-49 demo and 3.7 million total viewers. In both metrics, this was Fox’s top in-season unscripted series premiere since “Cosmos” kicked off almost four years ago. Fox finished runner-up on the night among the all-important age range, with CBS as primetime’s runaway winner. Also Read: 'New Girl' Final Season Mystery: Does Furguson the Cat Die?

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.

Warners Developing A Carl Sagan Film

Warners Developing A Carl Sagan Film
With Ridley Scott’s The Martian roaring its way towards us, there’s renewed interest in the more scientific angles of space on screen. And now Warner Bros. is developing a drama about a man who helped spearhead that in popular culture: Carl Sagan.Sagan was an astronomer, cosmologist, astrophysicist, astrobiologist and communicator who, through his passion for science and its advancement, helped bring astronomy and other disciplines to a much wider audience through public appearances, books, articles and his hugely successful TV series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, which aired in 1980. His work was adapted into the likes of Contact, Robert Zemeckis’ 1997 sci-fi adventure. A frequent guest on talk shows, he also became famous for including messages on the Pioneer and Voyager spacecraft. He was married three times and had five children across his relationships.Sagan died in 1996 and his widow, Ann Druyan is one of the producers behind the new film.

Carl Sagan Movie in the Works at Warner Bros.

Carl Sagan Movie in the Works at Warner Bros.
Warner Bros. is developing an untitled drama about the late astrophysicist Carl Sagan.

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

Carl Sagan biopic coming from Warner Bros

Warner Bros is pressing ahead with a biopic of Contact writer and Cosmos presenter Carl Sagan...

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.

CBS Wins Sunday as Hallmark Hall of Fame Movie Soft for ABC

CBS Wins Sunday as Hallmark Hall of Fame Movie Soft for ABC
The Hallmark Hall of Fame franchise remains a shadow of its former self, with Sunday’s premiere of “In My Dreams” drawing tiny numbers for ABC while providing an opening for NBC’s “Believe” to show some gains. CBS won the night with its regular lineup, led in demos by “The Amazing Race” and in total viewers by “The Good Wife.”

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
