2015 is here! And we have many reasons to rejoice! Not only are some amazing shows returning this year (see my last post) but the newcomers look very promising!
Check out which new shows made my shortlist:
The Whispers is co-produced by Steven Spielberg . Need I say more? Ok then: the series, based on the 1951 Ray Bradbury short story “Zero Hour”, explores what happens when an alien race begins a mysterious and quiet takeover of Earth by using the most unlikely inhabitants on the planet—the children.
The trailer gave me the chills. No release date announced by ABC yet, but it’s not coming soon enough!
The last man on Earth tells the story of an average guy (Will Forte) who once loved his family and hated his job at the bank – now he’s humanity’s last hope. As he tries to survive at the end of the world, will he ever find another person alive on the planet? Would hoping that she is a female be asking too much? Well, January Jones just joined the cast, so there IS hope!
The show will premiere on FOX on March,1. I can’t wait for this show, and you will feel the same after watching the hilarious trailer:
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: A new series from Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, who worked together on Fey’s NBC series 30 Rock. The program was made for NBC but sold to Netflix, which picked up the canceled show before it even aired on the network.
After living in a cult for 15 years, Kimmy decides to reclaim her life and start over in New York City. Armed with just a backpack, light-up sneakers and a couple of way-past-due library books, she’s ready to take on a world she didn’t even think existed anymore.
Since 2 seasons have already been ordered by the network, I have to admit I’m curious… No trailers yet, but the show will premiere in March.
Netflix is also spoiling us this year with Bloodline , starring Kyle Chandler (premieres in March). While not much has been leaked, we know that the show, made by the creators of “Damages”, centers on a close-knit family of four adult siblings whose secrets and scars are revealed when their black sheep brother returns home. I don’t know about you, but I’m in.
I will also give The Astronaut wives club a try. The 10-episode series is based on author Lily Koppel’s best-selling book by the same title, which tells the real story of the women who stood beside the United States’ first spacemen. Originally, ABC had scheduled the series (which focused only on the Mercury 7) to premiere last year , but the ten episodes underwent a creative change to include the spouses of the Gemini and Apollo astronauts, resulting in the growing cast and its air date being pushed to spring 2015 on ABC.
Oh, and by the way: happy new year!
