Willow premieres on Disney+ November 30. The series is based on the George Lucas fantasy-adventure film of the same name. The story began when an aspiring sorcerer, played by Warwick Davis, is whisked away on a journey to protect an infant empress Elora Danan and vanquish the evil Queen Bavmorda from their world of Andowyne. Now, the story continues with Davis reprising his titular role, as he leads an unlikely crew of heroes on a quest to protect Andowyne from an even larger foe than they had imagined possible. 

Fox’s new drama series Alert premieres January 8, immediately after NFL on FOX. The procedural drama follows the Philadelphia Police Department’s Missing Person’s Unit (MPU).
