This week, in an annual event called the “upfronts,” television networks are presenting their new fall schedules to advertisers and members of the TV press — including our own James Poniewozik, who has been filing daily dispatches. Trailers released during the presentations will give you a few months to decide which shows to save a spot for on your DVR.
From ABC, we can expect a TV version of Little Giants, but with a mom instead of a dad, and baseball instead of football (Back in the Game); Rebel Wilson as a girl gone a little bit wild (Super Fun Night); and, as seen above, a Wonder Years-style trip down memory lane (The Goldbergs).
The rest of the ABC trailers are here are here on YouTube.
Among the trailers unveiled by Fox were from such shows as a modern update to the headless horseman story (Sleepy Hollow), an online-dating romance (Us & Them) and, below, Brooklyn Nine Nine starring Andy Samberg as a hapless cop. The rest of the Fox trailers are here on YouTube.
NBC released trailers for a teen-pregnancy comedy (Welcome to the Family); a Sean Hayes single-dad comedy (Sean Saves the World); and The Michael J. Fox Show, in which the actor plays version of himself as a newscaster with Parkinson’s disease. The rest of the NBC trailers are here on YouTube.
