Fall Television Preview
Ahhh fall is here and just getting into full swing. From all the hottest trends at fashion week (#TeaWithTiffany) to restaurant week (#SamanthaInTheCity) and to my absolute favorite, premier week. Yes this Sunday the Primetime Emmys will kick off premier week which means your favorite shows and slew of new comedies and dramas are back just for your entertainment. We all know television is my thing and I absolutely look forward to the premiers of some of my favorite shows ie Quantico, Blackish, Chicago Med, Scream Queens and Empire just to name a few. But what’s more exciting are all the new shows competing for your attention. Here’s my list of just a few shows I’m looking forward to this fall.
Starring Sanaa Lathan, is a detective drama putting Lathan as lead detective investigating a case after an act of police brutality in a small town. Sound familiar? With everything things that’s been happening in recent years with unarmed black men being struck by police force, directed and produced by one of my favorite Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love and Basketball, Beyond the Lights) and Reggie Rock Bythewood there’s no doubt that this show will open a lot of eyes and start very serious conversations surrounding police brutality. You can expect a mid season premier from Fox.
The Good Place:
Starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson is a new comedy coming to NBC. A women who feels she was not a very nice person played by Bell is having a very hard time trying to figure out how she has landed in the so called “Good Place” in her afterlife. A place where it is even impossible to swear, ike your mouth is on permanent auto correct saying duck instead of, well you know. A hilarious comedy with a lot of lessons is always a good recipe for a great show. The Good Place premiers Monday, Sep. 19 at 10:00 Pm on NBC
The popular movie franchise gets a reboot with Damon Waynans and Clayne Crawford taking on the roles of Robert Murtaugh and Martin Riggs. This show comes right on time giving a new generation a chance to connect with these characters. Although the show is a drama with Damons Waynans you can be sure to expect a few laughs along the way. Lethal Weapon premiers Wednesday Sep. 21 at 8:00 Pm on Fox
A drama coming to ABC filling the shoes and time slot of Scandal which will have a mid season premier. Starring Piper Perabo, Notorious will profile the lives and relationship between Media outlets and criminal law. There’s a fine line between the truth, slander and libel when it comes to reporting on current events. This show for sure will bring us all the face paced drama we expect from ABC on Thursday nights and although this is not a Shondaland production it’s still time to TGIT as Greys Anatomy and How to Get Away With Murder will be returning Thursday Sep 22.
If you know me you know I lived for this movie. Although this television series will not star the kick ass Liam Neeson it will follow his character a young Brian Mills played by Clive Standen where we will find out how he acquired his particular set of skills that made him the father you don’t want to mess with. Liam Neeson really did his thing in the Taken franchise and I’m sure Standen will not disappoint. Be on the lookout for Taken, which will have a midseason premier on NBC.
Another film reboot which earned Denzel Washington the Academy award for Best Actor, I think this is just about on everyone’s list of favorite movies. The show picks up 15 years after the film ends same concept two detectives one very on the straight and narrow while the other might have other dealing elsewhere. You can expect a midseason premier of Training Day coming to CBS.
This fall is full of action packed dramas and hilarious comedies I hoped you spent you summer binging because your favorite shows and characters are back and ready to roll action. So many shows so little time be sure to never miss and episode by catching them on your favorite apps.
