Peter Rice, Chairman, Entertainment, Fox Networks Group, and Kevin Reilly, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company, unveiled the Fox primetime schedule for the 2010-2011 television season today to reporters on a conference call about the direction of the network.
“Fox has been the No. 1 network for six consecutive seasons not only because our programs are hits, but also because they’re the most engaging shows on television,” said Rice. “We’re very excited to add a full slate of creative, original new series next season that will help us continue to capture imaginations and draw people back to Fox week after week.”
“Last season, we did what Fox does best: we took some risks that paid off. Now we’re going to up the ante with an even more diverse and creative roster of programs for next year,” added Reilly. “With three daring new dramas, a fresh new animated series and three new live-action comedies, we’re positioned to rebuild the Fox comedy brand, introduce the next generation of unique characters and deliver an even more compelling experience for our viewers next season.”
Take a look at the schedule below and stay tuned for my thoughts on which new pilots will be gems, and which will be duds.
