Fox looks to sci-fi, fantasy this fall; MacFarlane in space

The series is set 400 years ahead and follows the adventures of an exploratory spaceship.

In the wake of the full schedule being released, who is ready for some Fox 2017 Fall Trailers?

MacFarlane enjoys science and brought the documentary "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" to Fox in 2014.

Also debuting this fall is "The Gifted", about a suburban couple who discovers their children have mutant powers.

Ghosted, a buddy comedy starring Craig Robinson and Adam Scott as a pair of Mulder and Scully-lite paranormal investigators.

Along with the upcoming scripted newbies, Fox is about to begin casting for its live productions of musical adaptation of the movie "A Christmas Story" and a bold made-for-TV restating of the Broadway hit "Rent".

The upfronts announcements from Fox come after the broadcast network last week posted quarterly earnings that were lifted by the Super Bowl but faced tough comps due to the absence of "American Idol", which is moving to ABC. The show will air Thursdays at 9/8c this Fall.

GONERS: "24: "Legacy", Pitch", "Prison Break", "Bones", "Son of Zorn", "Sleepy Hollow", "Rosewood", "You the Jury", "APB" and "Making History".

Fox and other broadcast networks are presenting their upcoming program lineups to advertisers in NY this week. Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk are creating a new procedural drama called "9-1-1".

From executive producers Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Lon Zimmet, and executive producer/director Steve Levitan, LA to Vegas is a workplace comedy about an airline crew and the eccentric passengers who, every weekend, take a no-frills roundtrip flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas with one goal in mind - to come back a victor.

An ensemble workplace comedy about a group of underdogs who are trying to find their place in the world that is set on the Friday night flight from L.A.to Vegas and the returning flight on Sunday, who all share the same goal: to come back a victor in the casino of life.

"This past season, we launched five of the top 15 new series - more than any other network - and next season, we're using our strongest series to launch new shows and grow returning series", said Newman and Walden.

"Gotham" moves from Mondays to 8 p.m. The former Friday Night Lights and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. actress and star of David E. Kelley's nixed Wonder Woman television pilot, has been part of an enormous array of sci-fi films and televisions shows.

This show has the ingredients for a solid comedy, but those who can't handle Seth MacFarlane when he's not voicing cartoon characters (like in A Million Ways to Die in the West, of which I am a strong defender), may not enjoy this show since he's one of the leads. In a standup routine, Seth Meyers noted the show hit a ratings milestone that NBC hadn't seen in more than a decade.
