Fox adds six new shows
Fox is adding three dramas, two animated comedies and one new unscripted show to its 2022-2023 lineup, the network will reveal during its initial presentation on May 16. Monarchcrime anthology Accused and missing persons drama Alert are the new dramas. The New Animated Comedies Are Jon Hamm’s Grimsburg and that of Dan Harmon Krapopolis. The new unscripted show is Gordon Ramsay’s Stars of Gastronomy.
“Fox Entertainment is entering Upfront – a week literally designed for broadcasters to align with advertisers – as one company, regardless of platform, with advertising at its heart. Advertisers have been our top priority ever since. the beginning of this company, and we’re proud that this, too, is proof of FOX’s differentiation,” said Charlie Collier, CEO of Fox Entertainment. “As you’ll see in our presentation, building barriers between our best content and our partner brands is simply not our business model.”
Monarch has Susan Sarandon as country music queen and Trace Adkins as husband. The couple have created a country music dynasty, but it’s built on lies. “It’s as important as anything we’re doing on Fox this season,” Collier said on a press call.
Accused is based on a BBC detective anthology. Each episode opens in a courtroom about the accused, with viewers knowing nothing of their crime or how they ended up on trial. The story is told from the perspective of the accused through flashbacks. The series is produced by Howard Gordon, Alex Gansa and David Shore.
Alert is a character-driven police procedural about the Los Angeles Police Department’s Missing Persons Unit. John Eisendrath is showrunner and executive producer and Jamie Foxx is executive producer.
Among the animated comedies, Grimsburg stars and is produced by Jon Hamm. Hamm’s Marvin Flute “is perhaps the greatest detective to catch a cannibalistic clown or correctly identify a Mid-Century Modern wardrobe,” Fox said. “But there’s one mystery he still can’t figure out: his family.”
Grimsburg is produced by Bento Box Entertainment.
Krapopolis is set in mythical ancient Greece and centers on a flawed family of humans, gods, and monsters who attempt to rule one of the world’s first cities without killing each other. Hannah Waddingham, Richard Ayoade and Matt Berry are among the voice cast.
Bento Box Entertainment produces.
