MIXED-ISH — In “mixed-ish,” Rainbow Johnson recounts her experience growing up in a mixed-race family in the ‘80s and the constant dilemmas they had to face over whether to assimilate or stay true to themselves. Bow’s parents Paul and Alicia decide to move from a hippie commune to the suburbs to better provide for their family. As her parents struggle with the challenges of their new life, Bow and her siblings navigate a mainstream school in which they’re perceived as neither black nor white. This family’s experiences illuminate the challenges of finding one’s own identity when the rest of the world can’t decide where you belong. Cast includes Arica Himmel, Tika Sumpter, Gary Cole, Christina Anthony, Mykal-Michelle Harris and Ethan Childress.
UNITED WE FALL (MIDSEASON) — “United We Fall” is a profoundly realistic family sitcom that follows the trials and tribulations of Jo and Bill, parents of two young kids, as they try to make it day to day as a functioning family. Bill’s very judgmental live-in mother and Jo’s large, Latinx Catholic family will never hesitate to let our couple know they’re seemingly screwing up, but Bill and Jo will always have each other’s backs, united against everyone – other parents, teachers, doctors, specialists, coaches, co-workers and, especially, their kids. Cast includes Will Sasso, Christina Vidal, Jane Curtin and Ella Grace Helton.
STUMPTOWN — Based on the “Stumptown” graphic novel series, “Stumptown” follows Dex Parios – a strong, assertive and sharp-witted army veteran with a complicated love life, gambling debt and a brother to take care of in Portland, Oregon. Her military intelligence skills make her a great PI, but her unapologetic style puts her in the firing line of hardcore criminals and not quite in alliance with the police. Cast includes Cobie Smulders, Tantoo Cardinal, Cole Sibus, Adrian Martinez, Camryn Manheim and Michael Ealy.
EMERGENCE — A character-driven genre thriller, “Emergence” is about a police chief who takes in a young child she finds near the site of a mysterious accident who has no memory of what has happened. The investigation draws her into a conspiracy larger than she ever imagined, and the child’s identity is at the center of it all. Cast includes Allison Tolman, Alexa Swinton, Owain Yeoman, Ashley Aufderheide, Robert Bailey Jr., Zabryna Guevara, Donald Faison and Clancy Brown.
THE BAKER AND THE BEAUTY (MIDSEASON) — Daniel Garcia is working in the family bakery and doing everything that his loving Cuban parents and siblings expect him to do. But on a wild Miami night he meets Noa Hamilton, an international superstar and fashion mogul, and his life moves into the spotlight. Will this unlikely couple upend their lives to be together and pull their families into a culture clash? Cast includes Victor Rasuk, Nathalie Kelley, Carlos Gómez, Dan Bucatinsky, Lisa Vidal, David Del Rio, Belissa Escobedoe and Michelle Veintimilla.
FOR LIFE (MIDSEASON) — Inspired by the life of Isaac Wright Jr., “For Life” is a fictional serialized legal and family drama about a prisoner who becomes a lawyer, litigating cases for other inmates while fighting to overturn his own life sentence for a crime he didn’t commit. His quest for freedom is driven by his desperate desire to get back to the family he loves and reclaim the life that was stolen from him. The show will also, through the window of his ferocious struggle and his complicated relationship with a progressive female prison warden, examine the flaws and challenges in our penal and legal systems. Cast includes Nicholas Pinnock, Indira Varma, Joy Bryant, Glenn Fleshler, Dorian Missick, Tyla Harris, Mary Stuart Masterson and Boris McGiver.
KIDS SAY THE DARNDEST THINGS — Hosted and executive produced by Tiffany Haddish. The hilarious reimagined format showcases a mix of in-studio segments and taped pieces from across the country, all set in front of a live studio audience. The series will capture Haddish’s unique voice and sensibility as she interacts with real kids – and their innocently entertaining points of view.May 15, 2019 at 6:30 am #1202894785

It’s her enthusiasm, perspective and yes, even her age, that may be exactly what will make her second act a great success. Cast includes Heaton, Kyle MacLachlan, Ito Aghayere, Jean-Luc Bilodeau and Sabrina Jalees.
THE UNICORN: A single-camera comedy about a tight-knit group of best friends and family who helps Wade embrace his “new normal” in the wake of the loss of his wife a year ago.

To Wade’s amazement, he’s a hot commodity with women, and his friends explain that he’s the perfect single guy – a “unicorn”: employed, attractive, and with a proven track record of commitment. With his daughters and best friends rooting him on and hoping he’ll find happiness again, Wade and his healing heart are ready to try life… and love… again. Cast includes Walton Goggins, Rob Corddry, Michaela Watkins, Omar Benson Miller, Maya Lynne Robinson, Ruby Jay, and Makenzie Moss.

BROKE: A comedy about Jackie, a single suburban mother who’s shocked when her estranged sister, Elizabeth, her sister’s wealthy, big-hearted husband, Javier and Javier’s fiercely loyal assistant/driver/friend, Luis, land on her doorstep in need of a place to live after the couple’s money dries up. Though class differences may separate the women, and the size of the house and the number of people living in it will test the limits of family ties, the familial bond of sisterhood might be the catalyst they need to restore their relationship. Cast includes Pauley Perrette, Jaime Camil, Natasha Leggero, Izzy Diaz and Antonio Corbo.May 15, 2019 at 6:57 am #1202894807

CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl: “When we were looking at a decision and what to do with Bull, what happened was something that a lot of us didn’t know about. So, when it came time to make a decision, we wanted to look at it through a fresh lens and new eyes. We wanted to reassess and look at what happened,” he said.
Speaking at the broadcaster’s press upfronts events, Kahl admitted Weatherly made a mistake but that he “owned” that mistake. “He’s indicated to us that he’s willing to take coaching and training that we deem necessary for him to create a positive environment on the set. We looked at the totality of his work on CBS. He’s been with CBS for 14 years and there were no complaints before and none after. He took everything seriously and wants to move forward. He wants to make it better,” Kahl added.May 16, 2019 at 5:45 am #1202896084
This has to be the dullest (safest?) series of fall lineups in history. No bold schedule moves. No really exciting new shows. Several 2 hour newsmagazine and reality show blocks. And cautious programming with many short run episode commitments and plenty held for mid-season. This really feels like the end of network television to me, and this was probably inevitable, but sad nonetheless.May 16, 2019 at 5:45 am #1202896086
