Public Morals:
Public Morals, from writer-director-producer-star Edward Burns, is a gritty, intense crime drama set in the world of the Vice Division of the New York City Police Department in the 1960s. The drama follows Terry Muldoon, a Public Morals detective trying to maintain control over his tightly ordered world as the city and the times around him are undergoing profound cultural changes. In this serialized cop drama, Muldoon and his team will confront a number of challenges, from keeping a lid on prostitution and gambling rings to being thrust into a deadly turf war that breaks out between the new and old factions of the Irish Mob. Public Morals is inspired by Burns’ own life growing up in a family of cops in a morally ambivalent, very dangerous time.

 


The Librarians:
Produced by Electric Entertainment. From writer/executive producer John Rogers and executive producers Noah Wyle, Dean Devlin and Marc Roskin.

 


Proof:
Proof is a serialized supernatural drama series that follows Dr. Carolyn Tyler on a journey toward answering one of life’s greatest mysteries: Is there life after death? A highly trained surgeon, skeptic and believer in hard science, Dr. Tyler is challenged by an eccentric and terminally ill billionaire to prove whether there is an afterlife. After exploring stories about hauntings, near-death experiences, past lives and more, Dr. Tyler slowly evolves from hardline skeptic, to doubter and, ultimately, reluctant believer.

TBS


Buzzy’s:
An ensemble comedy about a group of misfits from high school who work together at a Charlestown, Mass. barbershop called Buzzy’s. Their dreams may lie across the Charles River in Boston, but for now, their work, their lives and their loves – not to mention their sense of humor – remain in Charlestown. From executive producers David Kohan and Max Mutchnick.

 


Your Family or Mine:
Your Family or Mine, the comedy focuses on a different side of young couple’s family each week. Kelli (Foster) and Oliver (Howard) are the couple at the center. The series alternates between the in-laws and the casts, including Dreyfuss and Williams as Oliver’s parents. It also delivers funny scenarios that every couple can relate to as Kelli and Oliver navigate the complexities and eccentricities of both of their families while trying to maintain their own marriage and sanity. Based on an enormously popular Israeli comedy, Your Family or Mine is being produced by Sony Pictures Television, Jamie Tarses’ Fanfare Productions, Keshet International and Teddy Productions.

 


Angie Tribeca:
TBS’ new spoof of police procedurals, is the brainchild of Steve and Nancy Carell. Rashida Jones stars in this single-camera comedy as Angie Tribeca, a ten-year veteran of the LAPD. Her fellow officers in the squad are an eccentric but brilliant group of people who investigate crime, reveal way too much personal information about themselves and refuse to rest until justice has been served…sort of. A spoof in the tradition of The Naked Gun and Airplane!, Angie Tribeca is executive-produced by Steve and Nancy Carell through their Carousel Television, along with Campbell Smith and Thom Hinkle.

7 Comments:

  1. (Long time reader, first time commenter)

    ‘Legends’ looks really good & Sean Bean is such a great actor.

    One problem, though: Sean Bean’s characters usually die in every series/film he is in!

  2. Transporter: the series already screened here on FX last year. It was an enjoyable show and looking forward to season 2. I believe that TNT now have the USA rights.

  3. @ David Knox – it should be noted that Transporter is simply the American rights for the 2012 Candian-European series which has already aired here on FX. However, season 2 which is currently already in production would most probably have it’s world wide premiere on TNT.
