Two new dramas will join (a brief run of ) Bones on Monday this fall while a new live-action comedy from Seth MacFarlane and another starring Andre Braugher will open up a comedy block on Tuesdays.
In all, Fox ordered four new comedies and five dramas for the 2013-14 season, including a new Masterchef with ‘tweeners that will air on Fridays, where Bones and Raising Hope will eventually land.
For midseason, Fox will bow Gang Related, Almost Human, Surviving Jack, Us & Them, and Murder Police. Fox will also reward the prime post-Super Bowl berth on Feb. 2, 2014 to a special episode of New Girl and a yet-to-be determined new comedy, and premiere a new miniseries from M. Night Shyamalan called “Wayward Pines” in 2014 that will star Matt Dillon.
“This season we will take one step forward and break out of the confines of the traditional broadcast season,” Fox Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly told reporters today. “Our goal is virtually year-round original programming. We are not going to be confined to the traditional 24-order series. You will see shows that run 13, 15, 17 episodes. There will be no magic number. Shows will be scheduled throughout the year.”
Here is the fall schedule so far. Roll-over new shows for descriptions. We will fill out the rest of the grid as as each network is announced over the next few days:
