Hot on the heels of NBC’s trailers for their line-up of new TV series hitting the small screen this fall, Fox has chimed in with a sneak peek at some of the new shows they have in the works for the new season as well. New programming includes comedies starring Rob Lowe (Parks and Recreation) and John Stamos (Full House) as well as the crime drama Rosewood. Below you’ll also find the trailers for the series adaptation of Minority Report and the comic book adaptation Lucifer, which we featured on their own yesterday.

The Lucifer series got the nod for a season order this weekend, as did another unrelated and potentially more promising project: the Minority Report TV series. We’ve got more info and the trailers for both below. Read More »
As big as the superhero renaissance is at the movie theater, TV is at the very least matching it. In fact, it’s probably beating it.
At least ten superhero shows are either currently on the air, coming soon, or recently finished including Gotham, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Arrow, The Flash, Daredevil, Supergirl, and Constantine. And that doesn’t even count the upcoming Flash/Arrow spin-off, a potential Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D spin-off, the other Marvel Netflix shows and many more.
Every one of these shows has its fans and detractors, but very few people have looked at the current superhero TV show as a whole. The Daily Dot did and realized that all of these shows have a lot in common. To make the point, they created an easily digestible illustration. Check out the superhero TV infographic below.

Fox has a new DC Comics-based series in development, but it’s something very different from the Batman origin story Gotham. Lucifer is based, perhaps loosely, upon the vision of the fallen angel originally seen in Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series, and will follow the Morningstar to Los Angeles, where he helps cops solve crimes. (Seriously.) Now Tom Ellis (Rush) is the Lucifer series lead, and will head to LA for the Fox series. Read More »

Yet another part of the DC universe is coming to the small screen. Fox has officially given a pilot order to Lucifer, based on the DC Comics character created by Neil Gaiman. Len Wiseman is directing and will produce with Jerry Bruckheimer.
Worth noting is that the premise of the series has been tweaked since the last time we reported on this project. The Devil will now work in law enforcement. Which might be a commentary on the current state of American law enforcement, but is more likely just a concession to the enduring popularity of crime dramas. Get all the details on the Lucifer pilot after the jump. Read More »
When Warner Bros. announced a ten-film slate of DC Comics films last week, taking the studio all the way to 2020, you might have noticed one big omission. There was no Sandman, which we know Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been developing over much of 2014. But worry not (or continue to worry, if you’re afraid of the film), as Sandman creator Neil Gaiman says things are still moving along, and that we can expect another announcement. In short, Sandman isn’t part of the DC movie slate, because it is part of the Vertigo movie slate. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Warner Bros and DC are really going all-out with TV series. In addition to Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Constantine, the new Teen Titans-based Titans, Supergirl, and the possibility of a Wonder Woman show, there’s now another. Fox and the other companies are partnering on a Lucifer TV series. This version of Lucifer is based on the conception of the character created by Neil Gaiman for Sandman, which was in turn inspired by Milton’s depiction of him in Paradise Lost, and which was eventually spun off into his own Vertigo series written by Mike Carey.
