Fox has given series orders to dramas Lethal Weapon, The Exorcist, A.P.B. and Pitch, as well as comedies Making History and The Mick.
In Lethal Weapon, when Texas cop and former Navy SEAL Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford) suffers the loss of his wife and baby, he moves to Los Angeles to start anew. There, he gets partnered with LAPD detective Roger Murtaugh (Damon Wayans, Sr.), who, having recently suffered a “minor” heart attack, must avoid any stress in his life. Matt Miller will write and executive-produce with Dan Lin, Jennifer Gwartz, and McG. Keesha Sharp, Jordana Brewster, and Kevin Rahm will also star.
A modern reinvention inspired by William Blatty’s original 1971 book, The Exorcist is a propulsive, serialized psychological thriller following two very different men tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession, and confronting the face of true evil. Jeremy Slater will write and executive-produce with James Robinson, Rolin Jones, David Robinson, Barbara Wall, and Rupert Wyatt. Geena Davis, Brianne Howey, Hannah Kasulka, Kurt Egyiawan, Alfonso Herrera, Ben Daniels, and Alan Ruck will star.
In A.P.B., a tech billionaire (Justin Kirk) purchases a troubled police precinct in the wake of a loved one’s murder, but can this eccentric and enigmatic figure’s cutting-edge approach fix the broken ways of these police veterans? Matt Nix will write and executive-produce with Len Wiseman, Dennis Kim, Todd Hoffman, and Robert Friedman. Natalie Martinez, Caitlin Stasey, Taylor Handley, Eric Winter, Ernie Hudson, and Tamberla Perry will also star.
Pitch follows a young female pitcher (Kylie Bunbury) who defies the odds when she becomes the first woman to play in the major leagues. Dan Fogelman and Rick Singer will write and executive-produce with Tony Bill, Helen Bartlett, Jess Rosenthal, Kevin Falls, and Paris Barclay. Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Ali Larter, Mo McRae, Meagan Holder, Tim Jo, Dan Lauria, Mark Consuelos, and Bob Balaban will also star.
On the comedy side, Making History tells the story of three friends who try to balance the adventure of time travel with the mundane concerns of their present-day lives. Julius Sharpe will write and executive-produce with Phil Lord, Chris Miller, and Seth Cohen. Adam Pally, Leighton Meester, and Yassir Lester star.
The Mick follows a hard-living, foul-mouthed woman (Kaitlin Olson) who moves to affluent Greenwich, Connecticut, to raise the spoiled kids of her wealthy sister who has fled the country to avoid a federal indictment. She quickly learns what the rest of us already know — other people’s children are awful. John Chernin and Dave Chernin will write and executive-produce with Nick Frenkel, Oly Obst, and Randall Einhorn, who will helm the pilot. Sofia Black D’Elia, Carla Jimenez, Thomas Barbusca, Jack Stanton, and Susan Park also star.
