    ABC Pilots for 2016 new shows
    https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...t8ScSw2BU7B-Om

    all look absolutely awful and none will last an entire season. At least the dog one has a cool dog.

    CBS is bringing in a new McGyver and their other shows are Kevin Can Wait, Man With a Plan, Bull, The Great Indoors, Pure Genius, and more to be announced.

    McGyver fired everyone from the cast except for the two leads - Lucas Till aka Havok from X-Men (yeah I don't remember him either) and Joshua Boone, his best friend and is frantically reshooting the pilot. So yeah, you know that shows gonna go far.

    And in another "can you catch this show on air before its cancelled", TNT orders Will, a period drama about young William Shakespeare. They are also ordering a Civil War show.

    Still no news on HBO's Westworld and if it'll appear this year or 2017.

    House of Lies was cancelled today as well.

    Netflix, Amazon, and HBO are all I care about.

    The Good Place and Son of Zorn both look worth a watch.

    Full list of NBC new shows - Powerless and Better Late than Never sound interesting
    http://www.metacritic.com/feature/nb...dule-fall-2016

    Better Late Than Never
    REALITY
    An adaptation of a Korean series, this reality show finds four celebrities (William Shatner, Henry Winkler, Terry Bradshaw, and George Foreman) traveling across Asia with no itinerary and no help, other than intentionally misleading guidance provided by comedian Jeff Dye. The series is expected to launch just after the Summer Olympics.

    The Blacklist: Redemption
    DRAMA

    This spinoff from hit drama The Blacklist is based on last week's episode of that series, which finds Ryan Eggold's Tom Keen joining up with Famke Janssen's (Taken, X-Men) Scottie Hargrave, who runs the covert mercenary organization Grey Matters. Edi Gathegi (who plays Matias Solomon) will also move over from The Blacklist to the spinoff, while Unforgettable's Tawny Cypress will join Redemption as a regular.

    Chicago Justice
    DRAMA

    Dick Wolf's Chicago empire expands to a fourth series, this one also based on a backdoor pilot airing last week as an episode of Chicago P.D. Philip Winchester (Strike Back) stars in this drama about state prosecutors alongside Carl Weathers, Nazneen Contractor (Heroes Reborn), and Joelle Carter (Justified).

    Emerald City
    DRAMA

    Keen readers may remember this one from last year's NBC preview ... and the year before that, too. If you are unfamiliar with the long-gestating project, know that the title suggests what that picture to the right does not: Emerald City is based on The Wizard of Oz. Of course, this is a much darker, more-adult Oz. For one thing, Dorothy (True Detective's Adria Arjona) is no longer a child; she's 20 years old, and even her canine companion has been upgraded to fierce police dog. Also on board are Joely Richardson as Glinda and Vincent D'Onofrio as the Wizard of Oz. Together, they find themselves in a land of "competing kingdoms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy"-in other words, the network is going for more of a Game of Thrones vibe. Tarsem Singh (The Cell, Mirror Mirror) will direct all 10 episodes, so expect something gorgeous, over-the-top, and confusing.

    First Dates
    REALITY

    This Ellen DeGeneres-produced dating series (adapted from a UK format) provides viewers with a look at multiple first dates happening simultaneously at a Chicago restaurant. Drew Barrymore narrates.

    The Good Place
    COMEDY Thursdays at 8:30p

    Ordered straight to series without a pilot, The Good Place is one of a pair of promising new comedies set for NBC next season. The 13-episode series comes from Parks and Recreation creator Mike Schur and, like his previous show, features a smart, complex, female lead character. Kristen Bell (who will also remain on House of Lies) stars as a New Jersey woman who attempts to change her life for the better, if she could only figure out what exactly it means to be a good person. (Oh, and-minor detail-she's dead. Due to a bureaucratic mix-up, she finds herself in a much better afterlife than she deserves.) Ted Danson will aid her in her journey. The Martian screenwriter Drew Goddard directs the pilot.



    Great News
    COMEDY

    The other promising comedy on NBC's 2016-17 schedule comes from the 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt team of Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, along with Emmy-winning 30 Rock writer Tracey Wigfield. Created by the latter, Great News is not all that dissimilar from the format of 30 Rock, albeit set behind the scenes of a cable TV news program instead of a sketch comedy series. Here, the story centers on a producer played by Briga Heelan (Ground Floor, Undateable), who is chagrined to learn that her overbearing mother (Andrea Martin) has joined the station as an intern. Horatio Sanz, John Michael Higgins, Kimrie Lewis-Davis, and Adam Campbell also star.

    Marlon
    COMEDY

    The Marlon of the title is Marlon Wayans, and this family sitcom is loosely based upon his own life. Wayans plays an internet star and immature but loving father to two kids, sharing custody with his more-together ex-wife. Essence Atkins (Are We There Yet?) and Bresha Webb (Grey's Anatomy) also star.

    Midnight, Texas
    DRAMA

    Like True Blood, this supernatural drama is based on a book series by Charlaine Harris. The action takes place in a remote Texas town that serves as a haven for all kinds of unusual folk: witches, vampires, psychics, and the like. There, the assorted residents band together to fend off biker gangs and increasingly inquisitive cops. Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, last year's Mr. Robot pilot) directs and serves as a producer.

    Powerless
    COMEDY

    How can you make your network's new DC Comics series stand out amidst the glut of superhero shows on other networks? By turning it into a sitcom, of course. Vanessa Hudgens stars as an insurance adjuster who helps protect people against the unintended damage caused by crime-fighting superheroes (mostly of the fringe variety, though a major DC character could theoretically appear from time to time). The workplace comedy also stars Danny Pudi, Alan Tudyk, and Christina Kirk.

    Taken
    DRAMA

    Another series ordered without shooting a pilot is this adaptation of the Liam Neeson action film series of the same name. More accurately, the TV show serves as a prequel to the movies, centering on a young version of Neeson's Bryan Mills character (played here by Vikings' Clive Standen) as he goes about acquiring his particular set of skills. Jennifer Beals will play his CIA boss, while Gaius Charles (Friday Night Lights) co-stars as one of his fellow operatives. Homeland veteran Alexander Cary serves as showrunner, and the films' Luc Besson will also be on board as a producer.

    This Is Us
    DRAMA/COMEDY Tuesdays at 9p

    With his own ABC series Galavant canceled (and Grandfathered, on which he also served as a producer, getting similar treatment from Fox), Dan Fogelman moves on to an NBC dramedy series that had surprisingly strong buzz during the recent pilot season. This Is Us doesn't exactly have a story that jumps out on paper-it's an ensemble piece revolving around various people (some sharing the same birthday) whose lives intertwine in surprising ways-but it does have a cast led by Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia, plus recent The People v. O.J. Simpson standout Sterling K. Brown. The series will also reunite Fogelman with directors John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, who first teamed on Crazy, Stupid, Love (which Fogelman wrote).


    Timeless
    DRAMA Mondays at 10p

    One of three time-travel shows set to debut next season on various networks (and that doesn't include the currently airing 12 Monkeys), Timeless comes from Eric Kripke (Supernatural, Revolution) and Shawn Ryan (The Shield, The Unit), and-for good measure-adds director Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) and some of the producers of The Blacklist. The action-adventure series actually involves dueling time machines: When a criminal (ER's Goran Visnjic) steals one with the goal of changing the past to destroy America as we know it, an unlikely trio of heroes (a scientist, a history professor, and a soldier) uses the machine's prototype to try to stop him. Matt Lanter (90210), Abigail Spencer (Rectify), Malcolm Barrett (Better Off Ted), and Paterson Joseph (Peep Show) also star. The plum timeslot (Monday nights after The Voice) suggests that NBC has high hopes for this one, though it also received only a half-season order (so that Taken can take over the same timeslot next year).


    Trial & Error
    COMEDY

    The fish-out-of-water tale finds a big-city lawyer heading to a small town to defend an eccentric poetry professor (John Lithgow) against charges that he murdered his wife.

    The Wall
    GAME SHOW/REALITY

    Produced by the unlikely pair of Chris Hardwick and LeBron James (though, now that we think about it, they both are familiar with points), this competition series finds two-person teams competing for cash prizes, with the competition somehow involving trivia questions and what sounds like a 40-foot-tall version of The Price Is Right's Plinko game. Hardwick hosts.

    interesting article on how TV is paradoxically really, really good but its becoming increasingly difficult to make good shows. Recently Robin Wright demanded she get paid the same as Kevin Spacey for House of Cards, and she deserves it, but that basically ballooned the episode cost dramatically as the two of them went from like $100k/episode in the first season to $1m/each in the latest season.

    I will watch President Jack Bauer in that Designated Survivor for an episode or two. Can't go wrong with Jack commanding the free world in a gravelly tone.

    Timeless looks good on nbc, sliders and quantum leap combined.

    Same, but add Hulu to the list if you're okay with shelling out the extra $4 a month for the ad free version.




    And that Powerless trailer actually looks okay to me. Will be a good show for my girlfriend and I to watch (she's into super heroes a lot more than I am, and I tend to prefer watching comedies over action.)

    I think I missed the point in the No Tomorrow trailer where I stopped thinking it was just a stupid rom com.

    huh they completely changed up the premise for powerless, from an insurance company dealing with superhero fallout to Wayne Security, a division of Wayne Enterprises. still looks pretty meh though



    also watched first episode of No Tomorrow this week and it was pretty good but I heard the rest of the episodes are not as good plus the ratings are abysmally bad so its 99.99% likely gonna get cancelled

    Girl Meets World also got cancelled on Disney for any pedos out there
