The Autumn TV lineup has recently been announced and I’m so excited to see what these new shows have to offer! Here are a few I’ll be keeping my eye on.

The Defenders

A new legal drama starring Jim Belushi and Jerry O’Connell about two passionate Las Vegas defense attorneys who have a hard time at handling their own lives. Though it’s listed as a drama, I suspect there must be an aspect of comedy if these two are involved!

Hawaii Five-O

The remake of the popular 70s show will take place in present-day Hawaii and promises to be a fast-moving, action-packed version of the detective series. With new favorite Alex O’Loughlin as Detective Steve McGarrett, we can only hope this series is as favorable as its long-lasting original.

Blue Bloods

Tom Selleck, made famous by law enforcement roles, stars in yet another as an NYC police chief. The series is written by writers of The Sopranos, and has a similar feel with its storyline focused on a family of three generations of Irish policemen. Selleck claims the show is “very character driven and there’s not enough of that on TV.” Hopefully his character is different too as I’m a bit tired of his Magnum P.I. typecast now!

Matthew Perry

Mr. Sunshine

‘Friends’ star Matthew Perry writes and stars in this new series about Ben Donovan, the manager of Sunshine Center sports arena who’s going through a mid-life crisis. With a quirky cast of characters, the show seems to be a dark comedy which will be fresh addition to the rest of this lineup.

Hellcats

This is one new show I’m not convinced about. It seems like an all too familiar storyline about a pre-law student, played by Aly Michalka, who loses her scholarship and is forced to join the cheerleading squad in order to stay in school. Let me guess…she doesn’t fit in with roommate Ashley Tisdale or the rest of the peppy team… Thought so.
