Reboots, updates, superheroes and superstars — that’s what these new TV shows bring to the table.
While the film industry languishes, the TV and streaming industries soar like never before, with more outlets than ever hungry for content. Meanwhile, A-list writers, directors and stars are gravitating to the small screen because that’s where the big buzz and bucks are these days.
We’ve come up with another five of what we consider to be the best new TV shows in various stages of development right now. Check out these:
5 MORE New TV Shows We Can’t Wait to See
Julia Roberts Plays Martha Mitchell. What?
Sean Penn and Julia Roberts have signed on to star in a new Starz anthology series called Gaslit, which is the untold story of Martha Mitchell’s role in the Watergate scandal. It centers on Mitchell, played by Roberts, a big personality with an even bigger mouth. She’s a celebrity Arkansan socialite and wife to Nixon’s loyal Attorney General, John Mitchell, played by Penn. Despite her party affiliation, she’s the first person to publicly sound the alarm on Nixon’s involvement in Watergate, causing both the Presidency and her personal life to unravel. Who wouldn’t watch that?
A Celebrity Dating Game — You Won’t Believe Who’s Hosting!
Can you even hear the three words, “The Dating Game,” without that Tijuana Brass theme running through your head? In any case, it will be interesting to see what ABC does with this classic in their update, in which bachelors and bachelorettes will vie for dates with mystery celebrity guests. And get this — it will be hosted by none other than Zooey Deschanel and Michael Bolton. How random (and groovy) is that? Hoping to see Deschanel’s beau, Property Brother Jonathan Scott, stop in to show a little time, love and tenderness.
A Second Helping of Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs?
Yes, Dr. Frasier Crane could soon be resuming his practice. The Hollywood Reporter’s Rick Porter writes that a revival of the Emmy-winning comedy Frasier is being considered at Paramount+, which will take over CBS All Access in March. Kelsey Grammer is thought to be on board, but there’s no word yet about the former cast dream team consisting of David Hyde Pierce, Peri Gilpin and Jane Leeves. (John Mahoney passed in 2018.) We’ll keep you posted.
Going Back to Wakanda
Let’s here it for Black Panther filmmaker Ryan Coogler, who, as part of a his five-year deal with Disney TV, is developing a Wakanda-based Disney+ series. He’ll also be working on other shows having to do with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but for now, we’re just excited to go back to Wakanda. Really hoping to see the strong women from the film rocking this show.
Ethan Hawke Lands at Marvel
In other Marvel news, Ethan Hawke will be making his comic book adaptation and super hero debut joining Oscar Isaac in Moon Knight, a Marvel Studios series for Disney+. Hawke will play the lead villain. Frankly, after seeing his riveting performance as abolitionist John Brown in limited series The Good Lord Bird, we would happily watch Hawke trim his toenails for three hours straight. We’ll keep you posted on the development of the series.
