Fox is banking on a heavy dose of new dramas and comedies in the upcoming broadcast television season. The network took the wraps off a fall schedule that includes the new dramas “The Gifted” and “The Orville” along with the new comedy “Ghosted,” with the midseason dramas “9-1-1” and “The Resident” and the midseason comedy “LA to Vegas” also on tap.
The network also will be airing a live musical production, “Rent,” and a new “X-Files” event series is in the works for midseason.
The announcement comes ahead of today’s Fox upfront presentation in New York.
In a statement in today’s announcement, Dana Walden and Gary Newman, chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group, said: “This past season, we launched five of the top 15 new series — more than any other network — and next season, we’re using our strongest series to launch new shows and grow returning series. We’re strategically pairing shows that have greater compatibility to increase audience flow and create higher duplication on each night. We endeavored to develop a mix of provocative, compelling dramas; broad, funny comedies; and exciting, live events from the best creators in the business — and we’re excited about these new shows.”
