fox upfronts lineup Fox Announces 7 New Series For 2010/2011 Season

Continuing this week’s upfront presentations, Fox was next to announce their new series for the 2010/2011 season. With Fox’s current primetime line-up remaining largely unchanged, there weren’t many openings available for new programming. That being said, Fox picked up seven new series in total with three premiering this fall, three midseason series and a new romantic comedy slated for spring.

Amongst those picked up were a new comedy from Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz (Running Wilde) – staring Will Arnett, a new comedy from My Name Is Earl creator Greg Garcia (Raising Hope), a new animated series from Loren Bouchard, the genius creator of Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist (Bob’s Burgers) and previously announced Steven Spielberg drama Terra Nova – although, it won’t premiere until next year.

All in all, Fox has proven once again why the other networks need to watch their backs. While Fox has always been treated like the lesser network, these past years have proven Fox to be one of the only broadcast networks to consistently delivery quality programs.

Check out Fox’s newly announced 2010/2011 line-up below:

Fall Premiere


A sophisticated and provocative drama set against the sprawling backdrop of big Texas oil, will premiere this fall. From Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman (“Party of Five”), writer Kyle Killen and directed by Marc Webb (“(500) Days of Summer”), the compelling series stars newcomer James Wolk as a charismatic and brilliant schemer who has entangled himself in a deep, complex web from which he can’t break free. He’s caught between two very different lives and two very different women.

Raising Hope

The new family comedy from Emmy Award winner Greg Garcia (“My Name Is Earl”), starring Lucas Neff (“The Beast”), Martha Plimpton (“How To Make It In America”), Garret Dillahunt (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) and Academy and Emmy Award winner Cloris Leachman (“Malcolm In The Middle”). The sweet, offbeat comedy follows Jimmy Chance (Neff), a well-meaning screw-up trying his best to raise his infant daughter with the help of the eccentric family who did a less-than-stellar job of raising him.

Running Wilde

The new romantic comedy from “Arrested Development’s” Jim Vallely, Mitch Hurwitz and Will Arnett. Starring Arnett (“30 Rock”) and Keri Russell (“Waitress,” “Felicity”), the comedy centers on a lovable, but immature playboy (Arnett) trying desperately to win (or buy) the heart of his childhood sweetheart (Russell), the über-liberal humanitarian who got away.

Spring Premiere

Mixed Signals

A new relationship comedy created by Bob Fisher (“Wedding Crashers”) about three longtime friends and their attempts to balance their committed relationships with their desire for freedom. The ensemble comedy stars Nelson Franklin (“I Love You, Man”), David Denman (“The Office”), Kris Marshall (HUMAN TARGET), Liza Lapira (“Dexter”) and Alexandra Breckenridge (FAMILY GUY) and reveals how friendships and romances enhance – and further complicate – the lives of men and the women who love them.

Midseason Premiere

Bob’s Burgers

A new animated comedy series from creator Loren Bouchard (“Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist”) about a man, his family and their floundering burger joint. Despite the greasy counters, lousy location and occasionally spotty service, Bob and his lovable and quirky family are convinced their burgers are their ticket to success.

Terra Nova

An epic family adventure 85 million years in the making, is the new event drama slated for midseason from executive producers Steven Spielberg (“Jurassic Park,” “The Pacific”), Peter Chernin, Brannon Braga (24, “Star Trek: Enterprise”) and David Fury (24, “Lost”). The action-adventure series follows an ordinary family on an extraordinary journey back in time to prehistoric Earth as a part of a massive expedition to save the human race.

From creator Shawn Ryan (“The Shield,” “The Unit”), the fast-paced series, shot on location in Chicago and starring Jason Clarke (“Public Enemies”), Jennifer Beals (LIE TO ME) and Delroy Lindo (“Kidnapped”), will take audiences on an unflinching and unpredictable ride through the streets of Chicago to navigate crime and corruption with the most respected – and notorious – cops in the city.

While I said earlier that NBC’s announced line-up was strong, I really mean it when talking about Fox. While some of these series may not make it, I have no doubt that a good majority will be sticking around.

Without seeing a complete pilot for any of the new shows, the only one that I am will to wager on sticking around for a while is Raising Hope.

Do I have any takers?

What do you think of Fox’s new line-up? What series will you be watching? Which ones do you think will be canceled?

  1. I really dont think I can take many more of these american comedies, its the same thing over and over again “arrogant guy who learns a lesson each episode” or “quirky dysfunctional family”
    I wouldn’t mind if they were actually funny, but most are just appauling.
    In Australia I have been seeing ad’s for this new sit com called modern family ughhh I shudder everytime

    stick with prime time drama america, leave comedy to the experts

    • Give Modern Family a chance, that’s one of the show’s I make sure to catch because it’s so well written. It could easily be overly offensive with some of their dynamics but the writers and actors really make it work. Can’t think of an episode I didn’t get a hearty laugh out of and I’m sure you’ll find some others on here to support that claim.

      • I dont get offended by anything, so its not that. Its just the ad’s it looks sooo sooo terrible

        I really dislike American Humour (in general-w ESPECIALLY the movies) I find it unintelligent and pathetic. British is the way to go. Actually the only American shows I currently watch are;

        True Blood

        Seinfeld, Boston legal, Californication and weeds are probably the only american shows I find funny and well written

        • Comedy doesn’t have to be intelligent to be funny. Just look at Adult Swim. American “Sitcoms”, (or you know… sitcoms IN GENERAL) however, are definitely not funny.

        • I really do think that from time to time, the humor on Modern Family actually hits stride with Boston Legal. It’s a very dry humor, typically building one step at a time until it hits full mania.

        • Modern Family is a brilliant show you should give it a chance as has been said above it has some brilliant writing and the actors are all very talented. (My amusement of this show is only somewhat related to a family dynamic that isn’t far off of my own.)

          I am really just happy to see a lack of Reality (alternate) tv. I really don’t understand the American amusement in reality. Having spent the previous 6 months in England I would like to introduce some panel shows to the American audience. (You have been watching, 8 out of ten cats etc.)

        • Man you must start watching supernatural

    • Modern Family is brilliantly funny! Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it. Raising Hope is also quite funny.

  2. Oh look, the same old thing.

    Terra Nova looks pretty though.
    Bob’s Burgers looks just creepy…

  3. Two Strikes so far. NBC new show line up. Strike one. Fox new show line up. Strike two. Who’s next? Glad Fringe is liked enough to come back for the Fall. Great show there!

  4. “The action-adventure series follows an ordinary family on an extraordinary journey back in time to prehistoric Earth as a part of a massive expedition to save the human race.”

    What is it with people who, wishing to save the world, go on a really dangerous journey and, just for the heck of it, take their family along? Lost in Space did the same thing.

  5. ALL OF THESE LOOK GREAT!!! Way Way Way better than NBC’s! :)

  6. I’m hoping that the jokes on “Running Wilde” will land better when seen in a full pilot. If its (I’m really really hoping)anything like “Arrested Development” then simply delivering the punch line isn’t going to make the joke stick. The build up is equally funny.

    “Raising Hope” looks good. I like fun and quirky. I want to know how he got a kid.

    I wanted to like “Lonestar” but for people who deal in oil investments the lack of a Southern drawl was irritating. I’ll probably check out the pilot but don’t imagine me sticking to it.

    “Mixed Signals” looks funny but probably something I need to watch with guys friends to get the full extent of why the joke is funny.

    “Ride-Along” has promise. I don’t currently have a cop-driven drama on my schedule. I’d give it a shot – - see how it goes.

  7. As much as I love Arnett and I adore Spielberg… Neither one of those shows are going to last long. None of these are really popping out at me to be honest. I’ll stick with my usual shows. Dancing with the Stars, Glee, Celebrity Apprentice, The Soup, Family Guy, and SNL… Fox has bad history with new shows anyway

  8. Tera Nova is actually going to be a pretty popular show. Its going to have an epic movie feel to it and a hefty cast.

    Raising Hope, also will be pretty funny. Expect an Earl Hickey cameo maybe not in the first season but its going to happen.

    And to those that are relieved there’s not much reality show material, panic! There’s a slew of new shows coming at you. Some of the concepts so outrageous and lame, there guaranteed to be hits. I wish I could tell you more. :-)

  9. Amazingly their are no good new shows this fall.

  10. Joe the sites called Screen Rant not the happy yummy FOX blog, and I’m sure the population of Afghanistan complains about things. Hell the cast of My Name is Earl would send them into a rage.


  12. Oh goodie, the same crap they’ve been playing forever. Original ideas must be dead…or too expensive, haha.

    PS: This website sucks. Bite me, you’re not getting my email so you can spam the crap out of it. Losers.

  13. I think it’s great with the new shows when can we have some fantastic reality shows seems a lot more fun and challenging rather than drama.

  14. im from the uk and to be honest i do like quite alot of american comedy especially my name is earl but seriously you retards need to start thinking of some new idea’s and add some new laughs how i met your mother was a good recent addition to the comedy reel but it has started to get old very quick i look forward to what comes next but keep the english in mind if we find it funny u have hit the nail on the head

  15. big up 2 fox new serie movies 2012
