2016 TV Upfronts: Fox heads back for it fall future

Fox is reaching to the past for its future. The network’s schedule for next season, unveiled Monday, includes series based on the movies “Lethal Weapon,” “The Exorcist” and an event presentation of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” this Halloween, as well as a spinoff of “24” and new chapter of “Prison Break.”

“24: Legacy” stars Corey Hawkins (“Straight Outta Compton”), stepping in for Kiefer Sutherland, who will be a producer. It will premiere after “Super Bowl LI” (that’s 51 for us Latin challenged) on Feb. 5 and pick up the next night in its usual Monday timeslot. The updated “Lethal Weapon” joins the fall lineup on Wednesdays at 8 p.m., pairing it with the network’s biggest hit, “Empire.” The tale of two unconventional LAPD detectives gets an update with Clayne Crawford as Martin Riggs and Damon Wayons, Sr., as Roger Murtaugh.

“The Exorcist” will have a contemporary setting, too. The psychological thriller, also joining the fall schedule, follows two priests tackling one family’s case of terrifying demonic possession. “Prison Break,” though, will be a midseason replacement and bring back stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell.

The only other new show for the fall is the comedy “Son of Zorn,” set for Sunday night at 8:30 p.m. following “The Simpsons,” which hits its 600th episode next season. The hybrid live-action/animation show is about an a South Pacific warrior (voiced by Jason Sudeikis) who returns to Orange County to win back his live-action ex-wife (Cheryl Hines) and teenage son (Johnny Pemberton).

“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is expected to air around Halloween with Victoria Justice as Janet, Ryan McCartan as Brad and “Orange Is the New Black’s” Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter.

Joining “24: Legacy” midseason Mondays will be “APB,” a police drama from Len Wiseman (“Underworld”). It involves cover-ups and corruption in “the over-extended and under-funded Chicago Police Department.” (CPD again?) Justin Kirk plays a billionaire who makes a deal to take over a district and reboot it as a private police force with cutting-edge technology. “Gotham” and “Lucifer” will start the year on Mondays and return after the others end for a late spring run.

After the success of “Empire,” Lee Daniels has the music drama ”Star.” It’s the story of three talented singers (Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny and Brittany O’Grady) trying to make it in the music biz. Queen Latifah and Benjamin Bratt head the cast.

In time for the baseball season next spring, the network — which airs the World Series — has a new drama called “Pitch” about the first woman (Kylie Bunbury) to play Major League Baseball. It’s executive produced by Dan Fogelman (“Crazy, Stupid, Love.”).

“Shots Fired” will be a limited series about the aftermath of racially charged shootings in a small Southern town. It stars Sanaa Lathan, Stephan James and Oscar-winner Helen Hunt.

Two new comedies – The Mick” and “Making History” – will debut midseason.

The first is about at hustler (Kaitlin Olson) who must assume guardianship of her sister’s three high-maintenance children, and the second follows three friends from two different centuries who are time travelers.

On the reality front, there’s “Kicking & Screaming,” a survivalist completion, and “My Kitchen Rules,” pitting celebrity duos against each other.

During the presentation of the shows in New York City, the network brought out

Megyn Kelly, the Fox News host, who has a special on Fox Tuesday night that includes an interview with Donald Trump. “He was more personal and more open than I ever expected him to be,” she said, teasing the interview includes a few “shocking moments.”
