The half-hour, single-camera comedy will follow a 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper (Big Little Lies‘ Iain Armitage) living with his family in East Texas and going to high school.

A locally born and bred S.W.A.T. sergeant (Shemar Moore) is torn between loyalty to the streets and duty to his fellow officers when he’s tasked to run a specialized tactical unit that is the last stop in law enforcement in Los Angeles. Inspired by the film of the same name.

9JKL (Mondays, 8:30 p.m. ET)
A family comedy inspired by a time in Mark Feuerstein’s adult life when he lived in apartment 9K in the building he grew up in, sandwiched between his doting parents’ apartment, 9J, and his brother, sister-in-law, and their baby’s apartment, 9L, and his attempts to set boundaries with his intrusive but well-meaning family.

Wisdom of the Crowd (Sundays, 8 p.m. ET)
Inspired by the notion that a million minds are better than one, a visionary tech innovator (Jeremy Piven) creates a cutting-edge crowdsourcing app to solve his daughter’s murder and revolutionize crime solving in the process. Based on the Israeli format of the same name.

Me, Myself and I (Mondays, 9:30 p.m. ET)
A single-camera comedy examining one man’s life over a 50-year span. The show will focus on three distinct periods in his life — as a 14-year-old in 1991 (Jack Dylan Grazer), a 40-year-old in present day (Bobby Moynihan), and a 65-year-old in 2042 (John Larroquette).

Instinct (Midseason)
A former CIA operative (Alan Cumming) who has since built a “normal” life as a gifted professor and writer is lured back into his old life when the NYPD needs his help to stop a serial killer. Based on a soon-to-be-published James Patterson book.

By the Book (Midseason)
A comedy about a modern day man at a crossroads in his life who decides to live strictly in accordance with the Bible. Chip Curry (Jay R. Ferguson) is the film critic for a New York newspaper and a soon-to-be father who wants to be a better man following the loss of his best friend. As he begins his sincere spiritual journey toward a more moral life with the help of his wife and friends, he wonders if he’ll be able to take a page – or every page – out of the Good Book, and if the effect will be of Biblical proportions.
