Upfronts 2013: Fox Welcomes Nine New Shows in Biggest Originals Spend Ever
With some of its long-running thoroughbreds showing signs of fatigue, Fox is spending more than it ever has on originals in 2013-14, welcoming five new comedies and four new dramas. Mondays, fortified with breakout The Following this season, will add the J.J. Abrams-produced futuristic police drama Almost Human as well as period mystery Sleepy Hollow. Tuesdays are high-stakes on the comedy front, continuing last season's four-half-hour strategy. Freshmen Dads (from Seth MacFarlane and his Ted collaborators) and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, a single-camera show starring Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, will lead into returning vets New Girl and The Mindy Project. Fridays will see pint-size chefs compete in new reality series Junior MasterChef (working title).
