What’s coming your way from CBS this fall:
CBS says: “It's not a bird. It's not a plane. It's not a man. It's Supergirl. In the new drama from the world of DC Comics, Superman's cousin, Kara Zor-El, embraces her superhuman abilities and becomes the hero she was always meant to be.” Cool, but am I the only one who thinks this real trailer looks a hell of a lot like the fake Black Widow “rom-com” trailer from Saturday Night Live?
CBS says: “Based on the 2011 feature, Limitless follows Brian Finch as he discovers the power of the mysterious drug NZT. In this new drama from executive producer Bradley Cooper, explore what happens when a man unlocks his limitless potential.” That movie you don’t remember? Now it’s a series!
Angel From Hell
CBS says: “She may be crazy. She may be inappropriate. But like an angel, she is always there for you ... whether you like it or not. Emmy Award winner Jane Lynch and Maggie Lawson star in the new comedy Angel From Hell.” No laugh track, so probably—OK, definitely—doomed on CBS.
CBS says: “In the new medical drama Code Black, Angels Memorial Hospital is the busiest ER in the nation. A ‘code black’ occurs when there are more patients than resources, and you’re either praying for a miracle or performing one.” In other bold moves from CBS … a medical drama.
Life in Pieces
CBS says: “Whether you are on a date or at a funeral, this family's experience feels all too familiar. Every week, watch four short stories about family in the new comedy Life in Pieces starring Dianne Wiest, James Brolin and Colin Hanks.” Or, “Let’s throw a bone to the Parents Television Council.”
