The good news?  The networks all have released previews of their new Fall TV series.  The bad news?  Most of the trailers play-out pretty flat–look for more of the same bland, dry, typical attempts at the next best Emmy-winning drama and the same brand of network comedy.  We showed you previews for three new series from CBS last week (here) for shows we think might be worth giving a shot: the reboot of Magnum, p.i., the return of Murphy Brown, and the Dick Wolf series FBI with Law & Order’s Jeremy Sisto and the DCU’s Connie Nielsen.

We were looking forward to New Girl’s Hannah Simone starring in a reboot of The Greatest American Hero, but ABC rejected the series after the pilot was filmed.  Forever and Law & Order’s Alana de la Garza‘s series Chiefs, and Timothy Hutton in Main Justice are still expected from CBS.  What We Do in the Shadows is a werewolf-zombie comedy starring Doug Jones coming from FX.  HBO is expected to launch a series called Camping with David Tennant, Ione Skye, and Juliette Lewis.  And Showtime has City on a Hill with Kevin Bacon, Aldis Hodge, and Jill Hennessy, Ball Street with Don Cheadle, and Kidding with Jim Carrey, Catherine Keener, and Frank Langella.  But we’ve seen no trailers for these series yet.

Putting aside the ongoing series being continued between now and year end, several new series with trailers now released may be of interest based on actors who have previously acted in genre series, so we’re going to run down those that may be worth at least a viewing of the first episode.

Here are the other new series, the genre actors you might want to know about, followed by the trailers for Fall 2018:

Proof on TNT

In our week of previews and reviews of a summer full of sci-fi television series coming your way, we’ve seen some interesting shows we think we’ll add to the watch list.  Variety seems to be the theme–definitely the networks have something for everyone, from space adventures to sci-fi in a medical procedural setting to paranormal stories and psychological thrillers.  TNT’s contribution is of the supernatural variety, with its new series Proof, starring Jennifer Beals as a surgeon searching for life after death.

Joe Morton stars as another doctor in the story.  Morton is pretty much synonymous with sci-fi since his role as the inventor of the future in Terminator 2: Judgment Day.  He’s also shown up everywhere from Eureka to Warehouse 13, from CW’s Smallville to the movie Paycheck, to The X-Files and Forever Young (not to mention non-genre notable roles in Lone Star, M*A*S*H, Crossroads, The Equalizer, Speed, and Homicide).

Also look for co-stars Callum Blue (Smallville, The Tudors, and Dead Like Me), and Ed Gathegi (House, M.D., Veronica Mars, X-Men: First Class, Beauty and the Beast), and Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket, Memphis Belle, Transporter 2, The Dark Knight Rises).
