Prison Break revival 24 Legacy Corey Hawkins

It's that time again, when the new shows of the 2016/2017 television season are rolled out and we can take bets on which of them stand a chance of making it past their first season. Twentieth Century Fox recently unveiled their schedule for the upcoming season as well as debuting first-look trailers for many of their new series, which includes the revival of Prison Break, the 24 spin-off/reboot 24: Legacy, an adaptation of action/comedy classic Lethal Weapon, attempting to capture the terror of The Exorcist, and doing the Time Warp with a reimagining of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Check 'em out!

In the all-new event series, filmed on location in Morocco, clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may be alive. Lincoln and SARA (Sarah Wayne Callies), Michael’s wife until he was assumed dead, reunite to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, SUCRE (Amaury Nolasco), T-BAG (Robert Knepper) and C-NOTE (Rockmond Dunbar), are pulled back into the action.

Six months ago in Yemen, an elite squad of U.S. Army Rangers, led by Sergeant ERIC CARTER (Corey Hawkins), killed terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid. In the aftermath, Bin-Khalid’s followers declared a fatwah against Carter, his squad and their families, forcing them into federal witness protection. But a recent attempt on Carter’s own life makes it clear to him that his team is now exposed. To thwart further attacks, Carter enlists REBECCA INGRAM (Miranda Otto), who quarterbacked the raid that killed Bin-Khalid. Together, in this fast-paced thrill ride, Carter and Ingram uncover a sophisticated terrorist network that will force them to ask: “Who can we trust?” As they battle Bin-Khalid’s devotees, they are forced to confront their own identities, families and pasts.

Grief-stricken after the loss of his young wife and unborn child, ex-Navy SEAL-turned-detective MARTIN RIGGS (Clayne Crawford) moves to California to “start over” at the LAPD. He’s paired up with ROGER MURTAUGH (Damon Wayans, Sr.), who’s just coming back to the job after a near-fatal heart attack. Riggs’ penchant for diving headfirst into the line of fire immediately clashes with Murtaugh’s prudent, by-the-book technique. It’s clear from the moment they meet, this partnership could be lethal. But during their first case together, Riggs drags Murtaugh on a high-speed chase culminating inside the Long Beach Grand Prix and into a seaport shootout with drug dealers – and despite his protests, the older cop feels more alive than he has in years.

FATHER MARCUS BRENNAN (Ben Daniels) is a modern-day Templar Knight, an orphan raised since childhood by the Vatican to wage war against its enemies. Father Marcus is everything Father Tomas is not: relentless, abrasive and utterly consumed by his sacred mission. Caught in the middle is the RANCE family, members of Tomas’ parish. On the surface, they’re a normal, suburban family, but all is not as it seems in this household. The patriarch, HENRY RANCE (guAlan Ruck), is slowly but surely losing his mind. Eldest daughter KATHERINE (Brianne Howey) has become a recluse who refuses to leave her room. Her younger sister, CASEY (Hannah Kasulka), thinks she’s hearing strange noises coming from inside the walls. And mother ANGELA (Geena Davis) has been plagued by recurring nightmares, each more frightening than the last. Angela believes there is something in the house, a demonic presence, growing stronger by the day. Desperate, she begs Father Tomas for help, unwittingly setting the naïve young priest on a collision course with Father Marcus. Separately, each faces an insurmountable task, but together they become the only hope against an evil force that has been mobilizing for centuries.

A reimagining of the original movie, the two-hour event follows sweethearts JANET (Victoria Justice) and BRAD (Ryan McCartan), who stumble upon DR. FRANK-N-FURTER’s (Laverne Cox) bizarre abode. Frank-N-Furter, a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious mad-scientist, is holding an annual Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of ROCKY HORROR – a muscle-bound specimen created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires

I'd rather watch Mac and Dennis's Lethal Weapon movies than that show.

If you're looking for new ideas, don't look to network TV. The only shows that end up actually getting more than one season are garbage.

I don't think most of these look necessarily bad. Except Clayne Crawford lacks the edge Mel Gibson brought to the part. I've said before I'm in favor of a TV show just to keep the idea of a full cinematic reboot from gaining traction. Thing will bomb judging from the promo, but the hell with it. Prison Break and 24 Legacy look good, and The Exorcist might surprise (though I'm expecting Outcast on Cinemax to be the exorcism TV show to watch).

I know it's the nature of the internet to shit all over other people's work, but some these don't look half bad. I never watched Prison Break, so not sure if that looks like a good follow up. But 24: Legacy and Lethal Weapon actually don't look half bad. I'd at least check them out. But Lethal Weapon does look like it could fall into the same shlock as Hawaii 5-O, so there's somethign to consider

Remakes are the epitome of shitting all over other people's work. When you take someone else's hard work and claim it as yours, then you are in fact shitting all over the people who were original enough - and clever enough - to create it on their own. To me these series that are just remakes of great movies are just the worst.

All of these reboots hurt my head.

Given the focus on Riggs' wife's death I can already tell how that will play out. It'll involve some conspiracy that was actually supposed to kill him (just like how Lethal Weapon 2 played out, except this probably involve some corrupt public officials). That's how the first season will go if it gets picked up for an entire year. Basically it's going to be a more action oriented Life without the acting talent.
Oh yea, No Keifer no 24 for me.

Did Fox seriously decide to hit, "f**k it" and proceed to make shows with the understanding that all their stuff gets cancelled after one season?

Prison Break is my must-watch show this year.
24 and Lethal Weapon look like generic action shows with the franchise name slapped across it.
Seriously... who is even interested in a 24 show without Keifer??

I hope whoever gave the green light to the Lethal Weapon series dies slowly of hemorrhoids.

Sad thing is, all of these new shows, and not a single one is an original thought.

Production value has gone for television. But that doesn't mean the show will be good. Getting tired of Hollywood milking movies as a tv show. Some of them work (Fargo, Bates Motel) Most of them don't.

Any bookies out there takin odds on Bauer showing up by the end of the season?...

It's not that 24 looks like a bad show...it looks reasonably cool, but WHYYYY use the 24 name. Call it LITERALLY anything else...

Prison Breaks last 2 seasons were unwatchable. This looks decent because they're following the season 1 style... I Feel like this could be reasonably entertaining but totally unnecessary.

Lethal Weapon...again it looks like reasonably entertaining fox action, but again, no

Lethal Weapon...again it looks like reasonably entertaining fox action, but again, no need to use another franchises name...there's been dozens of black/white buddy cop movies and shows, no need to piss loyalists off.

If you put a gun to my head I'd say from these trailers lethal weapon looks the most entertaining of the 3, but I have this nauseating feeling that although 24 is bastardzing the name, it'll probably be the most entertaining final product once all is said and done.

...I'd also like to point out that I find think it's funny fox canceled all of its comedies, clearly they realized they do best with action.

Fox really know how to crap the bed. That exorcist promo is so bad it's the stuff of nightmares. Lethal Weapon looks like the point break remake, but somehow it topped that shitstorm.

Excited as hell to have Prison Break back. Watching the trailer it seemed like the characters and show never left.

Everything else I couldn't care less about; especially 24 Legacy which won't even be anything remotely close to 24 without Jack.
