Fox 2015-16 new series: Watch trailers for ‘Minority Report,’ ‘Lucifer,’ John Stamos’ ‘Grandfathered’
Today, Fox did more than just confirm their upcoming fall schedule; they also revealed some of the first trailers for the majority of their new shows! The official tease of “Scream Queens” has not been made publicly just yet, but you can see all of the other trailers below, including for some shows like “The Frankenstein Code,” which are not technically on the schedule just yet.
“Minority Report” – It is based off of the feature film, so it obviously has that massive pedigree helping it out. Steven Spielberg is also serving as an executive producer, and having his name attached never hurts anything. This certainly appears to be fast-paced and exciting, but it’s also science fiction on Fox. We’re worried for it already.
“Rosewood” – It’s a medical / mystery show in many ways, starring Morris Chestnut as a man who uses his pathology and autopsy skills to solve crimes. It’s better than we thought it would be, though we still do hate the title of the show (too “Pretty Little Liars”). Also, an interesting twist in that he seems to have a ticking clock on his life due to a medical condition.
“The Frankenstein Code” – It’s capitalizing somewhat on the horror / sci-fi trend, and is a modern-day retelling of the classic story minus the bolts in the neck and the other creepy stuff. For the most part, we’re intrigued. We’ll just have to see if this holds up over time.
“The Grinder” – The show is not winning any awards in the near future for its title, but it is still doing a heck of a lot right, and that includes giving us a fun vehicle for Rob Lowe as he plays the part of a fake TV lawyer who comes home and actually decides to join his family’s law firm.
“Lucifer” – This feels almost like the love child of “Constantine” and “Forever,” and if those two shows stay canceled, this may be your best destination for entertainment. Tom Ellis stars as the title character, who decides to quit hell and start spending some time above ground with the regular people. Ultimately, he (of course) ends up solving crimes. Ellis is magnetic, and the show looks like a lot of fun.
“Grandfathered” – John Stamos returns to TV as a man who discovers that he is a dad, and also that his son has a daughter. Basically, he’s an instant grandfather! It’s a cute concept, and while we also like Josh Peck, we imagine that Stamos will be the real selling point for the show.
