Yesterday, we saw NBC get its act together and put out some trailers for all the new shows starting Fall 2014. Admittedly, it hadn’t got its act together as far as programming was concerned, but at least it had some trailers.
Now it’s Fox’s turn to show us (some of) what it’s got and it turns out to be considerably better: Batman prequel Gotham, Broadchurch remake Gracepoint (complete with David Tennant), an adaptation of Leif G.W. Persson’s Backstrom books, hip hop/crime drama Empire, ancient Egyptian fun Hieroglyph and M. Night Shyamalan suspenser Wayward Pines.
No bonus points if you make it to the end of these.
