touch-cast-image-feat.jpgDepending on your taste in TV, the announcement of FOX’s Fall Season is either going to make you very happy or it will make you shake your firsts in rage.

The Rage might come from the fact that Both The Finder and Alcatraz have officially been canned. On the other hand, Touch, Fringe, Bones, Glee, New Girl, and Raising Hope have all been officially renewed.

New shows that will be joining the network include the following:
The Goodwin Games
Cast: Becki Newton, Scott Foley, Felisha Terrell, Jake Lacy, Melissa Tang
Creators: Carter Bays, Craig Thomas, and Chris Harris of How I Met Your Mother
Logline: “High-concept family comedy about a father who leaves his fortune to his three children (Newtron, Foley, Lacy)—but only if they will agree to his terms.”

Ben and Kate
Cast: Nat Faxon, Dakota Johnson, Lucy Punch, Maggie Jones, Echo Kellum
Creator: Dana Fox (Couples Retreat)
Logline: “A single mother (Johnson) gets an assist from her brother (Faxon) who moves in with her to help her raise her baby.”

It’s Messy
Cast: Mindy Kaling, Ed Weeks, Chris Messina, Anna Camp, Zoe Jarmon, Dana DeLorenzo, plus guest spots by Ed Helms, Bill Hader, and Richard Schiff
Creator: Mindy Kaling (The Office)
Logline: “A young Bridget Jones-type doctor (Kaling) tries to navigate her personal and professional lives.”

The Mob Doctor
Cast: Jordana Spiro, Zach Gilford, William Forsythe, James Carpinello, Jesse Lee Soffer, Jamie Lee Kirchner, Floriana Lima, Zeljko Ivanek, Wendy Makkena
Creators: Josh Berman and Rob Wright (Drop Dead Diva)
Logline: “A young female thoracic surgeon (Spiro) who becomes indebted to the South Chicago mafia is forced to moonlight as a “mob doctor” while also working full-time at Chicago’s most prominent hospital.”

The Following
Cast: Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Shawn Ashmore, Natalie Zea, Valorie Curry, Jeananne Goossen, Nico Tortorella, Adan Canto, Billy Brown, Kyle Catlett
Creator: Kevin Williamson (The Vampire Diaries)
Logline: “Thriller about an ex-FBI agent, Ryan Hardy (Bacon), who leads the search to catch a diabolical serial killer, Joe Carroll (Purefoy), who has created a cult of serial killers.”

If there was one of these shows that really excited me, it would be The Following. It has three great actors that I have enjoyed in several other programs/ films (Bacon, Purefoy, Ashmore) and I really like the idea of seeing how dark Purefoy can go as the head of a cult of serial killers.
