Four new shows we can’t wait to watch next season
In the midst of all the chaos of contract renewal delays and show cancellations like The Event, V, Law and Order: Los Angeles, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Enter four new shows for the upcoming fall season:
Produced by J.J. Abrams, Alcatraz stars Sam Neil, Jorge Garcia and Sarah Jones and has picked up epic LOST writer Elizabeth Sarnoff. The pilot follows a detective investigating the disappearance of a murder from the infamous prison, Alcatraz. There is a lot of intrigue and mystery surrounding Alcatraz and that is why it is one of the shows we can’t wait to see next Fall.
Paranormal Activity‘s writer-director Oren Peli, along with writer Michael R. Perry, co-created this concept and adapted it for television. The River stars Bruce Greenwood, Across the Universe’s Joe Anderson, and Leslie Hope. The series is about a famous wildlife explorer who goes missing in the Amazon jungle without a trace. His wife and son then set out a course to try to locate him, bringing an entire crew with them to make sure they document all the events. Mysteries, thrills and naturally Paranormal Activity-esque events ensue.
Once Upon a Time
Once Upon a Time stars Big Love‘s Ginnifer Goodwin, House‘s Jennifer Morrison, and Josh Dallas. It is the fantasy love child of epic LOST writers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis. Once Upon a Time takes place in a small town in Maine and kind of hints on that it might actually be a parallel universe into a fantasy realm. In any case, this show is something we are excited for the coming fall season.
Produced by legendary writer-director Steven Spielberg, Terra Nova stars Life on Mars’ Jason O’Mara, Avatar’s Stephen Lang and Shelley Conn. The series will follow a family in the year 2149 when they try to escape a dying planet Earth. They are transported via a portal to a prehistoric Earth that dates as far back as 85 million years in the past.
