If you know me, I LOVE TV! I have so many shows that I try to keep up with that it is ridiculous.A TV love like myself loves Upfront week which is currently taking place. It is a week where television networks make finals decisions on whether to cancel or keep shows, they announce their new shows and they release their fall and spring schedule. Out of those three things, I am most intrigued by the new programming. There are some great shows coming out this fall and these are the ABC shows I think you should be on the lookout for.
The Muppets are BACK and in PRIMETIME! ABC have brought back Kermit, Miss Piggy and the rest of the gang for a new series. Paul Lee (ABC executive) referred to it as a "grown-up Muppets". The show will be more of a documentary style and will broadcast the behind the scenes life of the famous puppets. Check out the trailer below.
Before Ken Jeong became a comedian (most known for his role as Mr. Chow in The Hangover trilogy) he was a doctor. Now he will be playing a doctor on his new comedy series. Dr. Ken will premiere this fall and will surround Jeong and his family as he manages being a physician, a good father and a husband. Also, Tisha Campbell-Martin (Martin, My Wife And Kids) is one of the cast members and she is great in all her roles; I am excited to see her back on TV.
ABC shows with black leads have been all hits as of late. Scandal (Kerry Washington) and How To Get Away With Murder have been highly successful (thank you Shonda Rhines). The new comedy Black-Ish, starring Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross, has also produced great numbers in its first season (would have been better if it were not for Empire). Now ABC is adding a new black led comedy to its lineup staring Mike Epps.
Mike Epps is Uncle Buck! I am a big Epps fan so I am sure the show will produce lots of laughs. The show stars Epps as a immature adult who becomes the nanny for his nieces and nephews. Check the trailer below.
Shonda Rhimes is back with ANOTHER TV show on ABC. Her new show is called The Catch and from the trailer, it looks like another hit TV series from the Shondaland company. The shows stars Mireille Enos (The Killing) as Alice Martin, a fraud investigator who exposes con artists. Unfortunately she becomes a victim of a huge con herself. Peep the trailer.
Lookout tomorrow for the NBC shows that I recommend you check this Fall
