FOX has set their fall premiere dates for new series Filthy Rich and Next and acquired programming L.A.’s Finest and Cosmos: Possible Worlds. They also announced that they shuffled their lineup slightly, swapping Filthy Rich, which was to initially air on Tuesdays,and Next, which was initially set to air on Mondays.
L.A.’s Finest, an offshoot of the Bad Boys film franchise starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba, premieres on FOX Monday September 21 at 8/7c. It will now lead into Filthy Rich, starring Kim Cattrall, on the same night at 9/8c. L.A.’s Finest is a Spectrum original series which FOX acquired for its fall schedule. It had previously aired on Spectrum last fall. Spectrum recently pushed the premiere of L.A.’s Finest second season from June to a later date.
Cosmos: Possible Worlds will premiere Tuesday September 22 at 8/7c with two episodes. Next, starring John Slattery, will premiere two weeks later, Tuesday October 6 at 9/8c. Cosmos: Possible Worlds is a follow up to the previous Cosmos series, Cosmos; A Spacetime Odyssey which aired on FOX in 2014. Cosmos: Possible Worlds previously aired on National Geographic earlier this year.
These premiere dates follow the previously announced FOX Sunday Animation lineup premiere dates on September 27. FOX has yet to schedule their Wednesday lineup of The Masked Singer and Masterchef Junior. Thursday Night Football will air starting October 8 should the football season be unaffected by the ongoing pandemic. WWE Friday Night SmackDown airs Friday nights.
FILTHY RICH is a Southern Gothic family drama in which wealth, power and religion collide – with outrageously soapy results. NEXT is a propulsive, fact-based thriller about the emergence of a deadly, rogue artificial intelligence that combines pulse-pounding action with a layered examination of how technology is invading our lives and transforming us in ways we don’t yet understand. L.A.’S FINEST follows Syd Burnett (Gabrielle Union), last seen in Miami taking down a drug cartel, who has seemingly left her complicated past behind to become an LAPD detective.
