Fox Primetime Schedule 2007-2008

18 05 2007

Until last year, FOX was the place to go for high-concept dramas that  people don’t watch because “duh, I don’t get it”. Then Peter Ligouri churned out his first full schedule that he oversaw the development off. Formulaic was the order of the day, and Standoff, Justice, Vanished and all the other one word dramas were gone before the Idol juggernaut came along to save their season. And as for their sitcoms for 06-07… pah. No, not meh, pah.

This year they have some very interesting shows that will be cancelled if they don’t get off to flying starts. The Sarah Connor Chronicles could be a hit amongst nerds of all ages. and if that works, it could filter down to non-nerds. Set after Terminator 2:Judgment Day it chronicles… Sarah Connor. Can you tell I haven’t watched the pilot? It is so hard to get excited about concepts, but thats where you earn your money I guess when you take the plunge as a producer.

Back to You is a sitcom that sounds funnier than anything they unveiled last year to replace Arrested development. Kelsey Grammar stars as a washed up news anchor. In the UK Kelsey’s Frasier character is almost synonymous with Channel 4, so I expect them t obe in the bidding for this “laffer” (yay industry speak. Skein).

K -Ville, a police drama set in post Katrina New Orleans is something I will definitely be giving a watch, but it’s relevance to a UK audience is… negligible. The full schedule is below.
