fox fall 2014 schedule

Fox has announced its plan for the 2014-2015 season today with the release of their new schedule. The biggest change is Bones moving to Thursdays and the addition of live-action comedies to Sunday nights with Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Mulaney.

American Idol will return midseason, as usual, but may only air once a week while the finale season of Glee is also being held until midseason (along with the third season of The Following). Gracepoint, the American remake of Broadchurch will air on Thursdays this fall (following Bones). You may also want to take note regarding Utopia, it is NOT a remake of the UK series but a “social experiment.” Other midseason pickups include Rainn Wilson’s Backstrom and Becki Newton’s Weird Loners.

From Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television and starring Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer (“The Help,” “Fruitvale Station”), Dave Annable (“Brothers & Sisters,” “666 Park Avenue”) and a charismatic cast of fresh faces, RED BAND SOCIETY is a provocative, inspiring and, at times, comedic young ensemble drama told through the eyes of a group of teenagers who meet as patients in the pediatric ward of Ocean Park Hospital in Los Angeles.

The new comedy premiering this fall is MULANEY.

Created and executive-produced by Hart Hanson (BONES), offbeat comedic crime procedural BACKSTROM centers on Detective EVERETT BACKSTROM (three-time Emmy Award nominee Rainn Wilson, “The Office,” “Six Feet Under”), an unhealthy, offensive, irascible – albeit brilliant – detective who is brought back from exile to run the Portland Police Bureau’s Special Crimes Unit (S.C.U.).

WEIRD LONERS, from writer Michael J.

PHIL MILLER (Forte) was once just an average guy who loved his family and hated his job at the bank – now he’s humanity’s last hope. Will he ever find another person alive on the planet? Would hoping that she is a female be asking too much?

REALITY SERIES 

Utopia
One new unscripted series debuts in the fall: the groundbreaking social experiment UTOPIA, which asks, “Does a perfect world exist?” From unscripted mastermind John de Mol (“Deal Or No Deal,” “Fear Factor,” “The Voice,” “Big Brother”), and based on the Dutch hit of the same name, UTOPIA is a bold new series that moves 15 everyday Americans to an isolated, undeveloped location – for an entire year – and challenges them to create their own civilization.
