Fox’s upfronts 2019-20 – a rundown and clips from the new shows: BH90210, Prodigal Son and Not Just Me

All through ‘upfronts’ week, TMINE will be revealing the new shows that are going to be hitting US TV screens from September 2019

It’s that time of year again – the ‘upfronts’. What’s that, I hear you ask?

What are the upfronts, TMINE?

It’s when all the US networks reveal to advertisers the new shows that are going to be hitting the TV screens some time from September 2019 through to nowish 2020. However, this isn’t the same as the international screenings, where buyers from TV networks around the world turn up to see what they’d like to acquire, so we won’t know what will be heading our way for quite some time.

This weekend, US TV networks killed off a whole bunch of existing shows (prompting howls of protest from their fans) and are about to commission a whole bunch of new shows (prompting howls of ‘you cancelled x for this rubbish?’ from said-same fans).

2. Fox’s upfronts

Yesterday, we got a look at NBC’s upfront presentation and today, we’re getting a look at Fox’s new shows. Fox isn’t in quite as safe a place as NBC is in the ratings and is looking shakier by the year. At last year’s upfronts, it launched:

Yep, only one of those survived: the indestructible Last Man Standing is indeed the last man standing and that started off on ABC. Odder still, Fox isn’t bringing it back until next year, as it plans to fill its Fall schedule with animated comedies. As a result, there’s not much room for new dramas either until mid-season.

So coming soon (and in one case very soon), we have:

  • BH90210
  • Prodigal Son
  • Not Just Me

And for mid-season:

  • Deputy
  • neXt
  • Outmatched
  • Filthy Rich
  • 911: Lone Star

Want to know more, including exactly when they will be airing, as well as take a look at trailers for all of them? And do you want to get TMINE’s hottest of hot first takes? Then follow me after the jump…

NBC’s upfronts 2019-20 – a rundown and clips from the new shows: Bluff City Law, Perfect Harmony and Sunnyside

All through ‘upfronts’ week, TMINE will be revealing the new shows that are going to be hitting US TV screens from September 2019

It’s that time of year again – the ‘upfronts’. What’s that, I hear you ask?

Anyway, in case you missed this morning’s news of the weekend’s slaughter, US TV networks have killed off a whole bunch of existing shows (prompting howls of protest from their fans) and are about to commission a whole bunch of new shows (prompting howls of ‘you cancelled x for this rubbish?’ from said-same fans).

1. NBC’s upfronts

As per last year, it’s NBC out of the gates first. Last year, it gave us Manifest (renewed), New Amsterdam (renewed) and I Feel Bad (cancelled), although a few more arrived later in the year. This year, we’ve got more, but NBC’s roster is pretty full, so most of them are mid-season shows and don’t have trailers yet. So after the jump are:

  • Bluff City Law
  • Perfect Harmony
  • Sunnyside

And for the mid-season

  • Council of Dads
  • Indebted
  • The Kenan Show
  • Lincoln
  • Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist

The latter list all sound better than the former, so I’ve no idea what NBC’s thinking here.

Deutschland ’86
Competitions

And the winners of the Deutschland ’86 competition are…

For the past week, TMINE has been running a competition to win one of two boxsets of Deutschland ’86 on DVD.

All you had to do to enter was ‘Like’ the TMINE Facebook page and leave a comment on either the competition entry post or the matching Facebook post.

Entry closed last night and the following people were all cool and retro enough to want to have Deutschland on DVD:

The names of the three competition entrants

Good odds, hey? Given nearly 600 people knew about the competition just through Facebook and at least another 250 through Twitter, that suggests to me either Deutschland ’86 isn’t that popular or the fact it’s available for free on All 4 means people aren’t fussed about owning it on DVD (yet). Bad luck them!

Now, using the mighty power of the Internet Random Number Generator, I’ve picked two of these three wise people at random from the entries to receive the DVDs. And they are…
