Fox Announces 2014-15 Lineup: Gotham Teamed with Sleepy Hollow; Wayward Pines Held for 2015As 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).

MONDAY:
8:00-9:00 PM – “GOTHAM” (new)
9:00-10:00 PM – “SLEEPY HOLLOW”

THURSDAY
8:00-9:00 PM – “BONES”
9:00-10:00 PM – “GRACEPOINT” (new)

“WAYWARD PINES” will join the schedule in 2015 along with returning series “THE FOLLOWING.”

Charles Manson. The name alone lives on in infamy even long after his physical remains lay rotting… and rightly so. A new docudrama entitled Charles Manson: The Final Words is on its way, and we have new details and behind-the-scenes imagery for you. Check it out!

The flick made its premiere on the REELZ Channel, and Breakthrough Entertainment has announced that they’ve acquired worldwide distribution rights to the project that features narration from Rob Zombie and is home to the final interview given by America’s most notorious and now deceased cult-leader and mass murderer, Charles Manson.

The opportunity that we have to offer this distinct and truly unique documentary to our international clients is beyond exciting for Breakthrough Entertainment,” said Craig McGillivray, Vice President, Distribution at Breakthrough Entertainment. “We are continuously focused on sourcing captivating new premium content that pushes the envelope and generates mass attention such as this amazing film from James Buddy Day and Pyramid Productions.

The two-hour film narrated by musician Zombie focuses on the so-called Manson family murders told from Manson’s perspective using never-before-seen case files, pictures, and exclusive interviews with Manson himself from inside California State Prison. The feature documentary reveals new details that unveil the true story and motives behind the grisly murder spree. The audio used in the doc contains the last recorded interviews with the infamous killer conducted by director and producer James Buddy Day.

It has been a truly distinct project for us and an experience that very few producers encounter. This film has the potential to captivate global audiences, and we are very excited to have Breakthrough Entertainment on board to share this one-of-a-kind documentary,” says James Buddy Day, Executive Producer at Pyramid Productions.
