FOX announces 2013-2014 lineup

The Fox network unveiled its 2013-2014 prime time lineup, keeping most of is shows, but cancelling all genre shows, replacing them with two new dramas.

New Genre Shows:

SLEEPY HOLLOW – Fall 2013 – Monday 9 p.m. (Repeats Friday 10 p.m.)

Genre: Urban Fantasy

In this modern-day retelling of Washington Irving’s classic, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison, “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to find that the world is on the brink of destruction and that he is humanity’s last hope, forcing him to team up with a contemporary police officer (Nicole Beharie, “Shame,” “American Violet”) to unravel a mystery that dates back to the founding fathers. From co-creators/executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (the “Star Trek” and “Transformers” franchises, “Fringe”).

Almost Human – Spring 2014 – Monday 8 p.m.

Genre: Near Future Science Fiction

A high-tech, high-stakes action drama set 35 years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids. An unlikely partnership is forged when a part-machine cop (Urban) is forced to pair with a part-human robot (Ealy) as they fight crime and investigate a deeper cover-up in a futuristic new world. Executive-produced by Emmy Award winner J.J. Abrams (“Fringe,” “Lost,” the “Star Trek” and “Mission: Impossible” franchises) and creator J.H. Wyman (“Fringe,” “The Mexican”) and starring Karl Urban (“Star Trek”), Michael Ealy (“Sleeper Cell,” “Common Law”) and Emmy Award nominee Lili Taylor (“Six Feet Under,”).
