Share this @internewscast.com


Fox has announced six new series — dramas Monarch, Accused and Alert; animated comedies Grimsburg and Krapopolis; and another entry from Gordon Ramsay, Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars — next season. But the network, however, has not announced a primetime schedule, which makes any type of specific analysis impossible.

At some point, the network will have to announce to advertisers where these shows will be airing.

“Fox Entertainment enters the Upfront – a week literally built for broadcasters to align with advertisers – as the only company, no matter the platform, with advertising at its core,” said Charlie Collier, CEO, Fox Entertainment in a statement. “As you’ll see during our presentation, building barriers between our best content and our brand-partners simply isn’t our business model.”

Surprisingly, the network is moving forward on a second season of low-rated freshman comedy Welcome To Flatch. Not returning on Fox next season will be two freshman entries: drama Our Kind of People and sitcom Pivoting. Fox has not yet made decisions on the non-scripted entries Alter Ego, I Can See Your Voice, Domino Masters, The Real Dirty Dancing and its Joe Millionaire revival.

New seasons of the Fantasy Island reboot and LEGO Masters, previously scheduled to air this summer, now will air during the 2022-2023 season. LEGO Masters will also be featured as the multiple-night event Celebrity LEGO Masters: Holiday Bricktacular.

The returning series on Fox are dramas 9-1-1: Lone Star and The Cleaning Lady; live action comedy Call Me Kat; animated sitcoms The Simpsons, Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, The Great North and Housebroken; and non-scripted The Masked Singer, Crime Scene Kitchen, Hell’s Kitchen, Masterchef and Beat Shazzam. Additional series renewals will be announced. by Fox.

New Program Descriptions

DRAMAS

Monarch

Originally slated to debut last January, Monarch is a multigenerational musical drama about the Romans. The family is headed by Dottie Roman (Susan Sarandon) and Albie Roman (Trace Adkins) who have created a country music dynasty together. However, the origins of the dynasty are not what they seem to be. Roman’s daughter Nicky Roman (Anna Friel) steps in and does all she can to protect the dynasty’s reign in country music while ensuring her own stardom.

Accused

In this anthology drama, stories of defendants in criminal trials reveal how one wrong turn leads to another. Each episode opens in a courtroom on the accused without knowing their crime or how they ended up on trial, the drama is told from the defendant’s point of view.

Alert

Described as a character-driven police procedural about the LAMPU — the Los Angeles Police Department’s missing person’s unit. When police officer Nikki Parker’s son goes missing, she joins the LAPD’s Missing Person’s Unit to help other people find their loved ones, even as she searches for her own. Six years later, her world is turned upside-down when her ex-husband, Devon Zoellner, shows up with a proof-of-life photo of their missing boy. Or is it?

ANIMATED COMEDIES

Grimsburg

Grimsburg follows Marvin Flute (Jon Hamm), who might be the greatest detective ever to catch a cannibal clown or correctly identify a mid-century modern armoire. But there’s one mystery he still can’t crack: his family. Now that he’s back in Grimsburg, a town where everyone has a secret or three, Flute will follow every lead he’s got to redeem himself with the ex-wife he never stopped loving, even if it means hanging out with the son he never bothered to get to know.

Krapopolis

Set in mythical Ancient Greece, the series centers on a flawed family of humans, gods and monsters that tries to run one of the world’s first cities without killing each other. The series’ voice cast features Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso), Richard Ayoade (The IT Crowd), Matt Berry (What We Do in The Shadows), Pam Murphy (Mapleworth Murders) and Duncan Trussell (The Midnight Gospel).

NON-SCRIPTED

Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars

Chef Gordon Ramsay hunts for the most exciting and innovative new food and drink entrepreneurs in his brand-new competition series.
