As expected, Fox TV’s 2014-15 lineup is light on horror aside from returning series “Sleepy Hollow,” but we do have a little more info on “Wayward Pines” and a few other tidibits to share.
Here are some excerpts from Fox’s press release:
Kevin Reilly, Chairman, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX), today unveiled the FOX portfolio of content for the 2014-2015 television season. “Our portfolio of content this year reflects the biggest investment in programming we’ve ever made,” said Reilly.
“FOX is redefining the network experience on our air and as a 24/7/365 platform with distinctive series, addictive event dramas, and can’t-miss live specials that will deliver broadcast’s most youthful audience at scale.”
Joe Earley, Chief Operating Officer, FOX, added, “The new series and specials we’re presenting today feature buzzworthy worlds and characters that we think will be the most talked about, liked, tweeted and shared of the season.”
Origin story “GOTHAM” traces the rise of the great DC Comics supervillains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”) and starring Ben McKenzie (“Southland,” “The O.C.”), Jada Pinkett Smith (“Hawthorne,” Collateral), and Donal Logue (“Vikings,” “Sons of Anarchy”), “GOTHAM” follows one cop, destined for greatness, as he navigates a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular superheroes of our time.
Also this fall, 10-episode mystery event series “GRACEPOINT,” starring Welsh BAFTA winner David Tennant (“Dr. Who”), Emmy Award winner Anna Gunn (“Breaking Bad”), Academy Award nominee Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook), Academy Award nominee Nick Nolte (Warrior, Affliction), and SAG Award winner Michael Peña (American Hustle), joins the schedule. The riveting mystery (based on British series “Broadchurch”) follows the tragic death of a young boy and the major police investigation and nationwide media frenzy that subsequently overtake a picturesque seaside town, where anyone is a suspect.
Based on a best-selling novel and brought to life by suspenseful storyteller M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense), “WAYWARD PINES” is an intense, mind-bending 10-episode thriller starring Academy Award nominee Matt Dillon “Crash) as a Secret Service agent on a mission to find two missing federal agents in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, ID. Every step closer to the truth makes him question if he will ever get out of Wayward Pines alive. The all-star cast also includes Academy and Emmy Award winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter), Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard (Crash, Hustle & Flow), Carla Gugino (“Entourage”), Shannyn Sossamon (“How to Make It in America”), Toby Jones (the Harry Potter franchise), and Academy Award and Emmy Award nominee Juliette Lewis (Cape Fear).
