Following hot on the heels of NBC, FOX has unveiled the trailers for 8 new shows which are expected to debut this autumn.
Amongst the new shows are new Rainn Wilson (The Office) crime procedural Backstrom, Broadchurch remake Gracepoint which stars David Tennant, and Lee Daniels’ new TV show Empire which stars Terrence Howard.
As always there’s a real mix of new shows to choose from and the likelihood is that not all of them will make it past the first season so now’s the time to try and pick the ones that will go the distance. Check out all the trailers and information about the shows below:
