NEW ON ABC

[toggle title=”Read More About What’s on ABC This Fall …”]Like NBC, ABC is casting a wide net this Fall with a slew of new shows across a range of genres. Building on the success of Once Upon a Time, comes a new spinoff series Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, which is set to expand on the fairytale adventures of Alice in Wonderland.

And in keeping with the genre theme, the awkwardly titled Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is surely set to build on the phenomenal success of recent superhero movie franchises.

Midseason also sees another genre mystery show Resurrection hitting the air. The pilot episode packs both a tremendous premise and quite an emotional punch. Of the genre shows on offer this one definitely promises the most in terms of originality and scope.

Meanwhile, look out three new dramas headed your way including lottery-shennanigans based Lucky 7, new sudsy drama Betrayal (a perfect match for Revenge, which is headed into its third season this Fall) and Killer Women, starring Battlestar Galactica’s Tricia Helfer.

NEW ON NBC

[toggle title=”Read More About What’s on NBC This Fall …”]NBC’s Fall Drama lineup for 2013 presents some interesting choices this year. The Blacklist, starring James Spader as a Hannibal Lector-esque criminal mastermind, premieres Monday, September 23 at 10 p.m. in the coveted timeslot following The Voice, indicating that this  might just be something special.

Then from Wednesday October 2nd, The new Blair Underwood-starring cop procedural Ironside starts its freshman run with a new take on an old show.

Dracula, staring Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the title role, also kicks off on Friday October 25th as a clever partner for Grimm, now entering its third season.

From midseason we can expect the supernatural, JJ Abrams-produced Believe along with a new emotionally-charged action thriller Crisis, starring Dermot Mulroney and Gillian Anderson.

NEW ON CBS

[toggle title=”Read More About What’s on CBS This Fall ……”]

While CBS may be playing it cool with just two new dramas in its lineup this season, we were nonetheless impressed with both Hostages (premiering September 23rd) and the crowd-pleasing Intelligence, which kicks off on February 24th.

Hostages stars the eminently capable Toni Collette as a surgeon coerced into taking the life of her patient – the president of the United States – by rogue FBI agent Duncan Carlisle (Dylan McDermott), while Intelligence, starring Lost’s Josh Holloway and Once Upon a Time’s Meghan Ory delivers action, drama and a touch of buddy-cop procedural with the tale of a test subject with a microchip in his brain (Holloway) and the special agent sent to protect it – and ultimately him.
