Fox at TCA: Executive Session Live-Blog

August 6, 2015 by  

Fox is up at TCA. Follow along for a live-blog as Dana Walden and Gary Newman talk about the state of the network…9:05 AM: Walden is boasting about EMPIRE’s numbers. She said they’re also proud of what GOTHAM and LAST MAN ON EARTH has done.

9:08 AM: Fox is working with EMPIRE’s Lee Daniels again — for a musical show set in Atlanta.

9:09 AM: “We’re in development on PRISON BREAK,” Newman says. They’re writing episode one, with both Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller.

9:10 AM: Bill Hader is going to guest star on BROOKLYN NINE-NINE.

9:11 AM: More details on the SLEEPY-BONES crossover: Booth and Brennan will find a headless body on BONES; they’ll be fighting “zombie red coats” on SLEEPY.

9:12 AM: We’re seeing a clip of X-FILES. Mulder and Scully do not agree with his methods…he thinks he has the key to what’s going on (and he thinks Joel McHale’s Tad has the right idea of what the conspiracy is), and Scully is very worried.

9:14 AM: “Anything we do would be integrated,” Walden says of a possible WAYWARD PINES return. They’d want to have things play into future book series.

9:16 AM: “It’s a bit of a sequel — it picks up several years after we left them in the last season,” Walden says. Other characters could be back.

9:17 AM: “It’s defied odds. I don’t put anything past that show and its ability to sustain its audience. It could be its final season, or it could not be, as well,” Newman says about whether this will be BONES’ final season. The crossover came from the EPs wanting to eventize the night.

9:20 AM: Lee Daniels’ new show, STAR, could cross over with EMPIRE, but it’s not the plan right off the bat.

9:21 AM: “He is going to be ignoring the straight-to-video [PRISON BREAK finale],” Newman says.

9:22 AM: “We’ve had a few meetings,” Walden says of AMERICAN IDOL’s final season.

9:23 AM: “We really liked the show, ” WALDEN says of KNOCK KNOCK. She thinks it felt original and distinctive, but they found themselves unable to market it to show the audience.

9:25 AM: “There are a lot of fans out there,” Newman says of SLEEPY HOLLOW. “We didn’t have it scheduled in the right place last year.” Because it’s a 20th show, they have room to play around with it, and they think it’ll work well with BONES again.

9:27 AM: Given how much space IDOL has taken up, Fox is ramping up development for next season to make sure they have enough content.

9:28 AM: Walden says they learned a lot last season about scheduling serialized dramas. SLEEPY, BONES, GOTHAM, EMPIRE will have their seasons split. The goal is to try and run as many straight — runs in the fall and into winter, with a hiatus, and then bring them back.

9:31 AM: “We’re still having, on average, 500,000 people a week watching EMPIRE,” Newman says. EMPIRE’s first season will be viewable via Fox until 30 days pre-premiere, when it will shift to Hulu-only.

9:35 AM: “I think it’s a continuing trend on broadcast to have loud shows,” Walden says. Musical shows a la EMPIRE help with that.

9:37 AM: “We certainly believe in diversity,” Newman says of women showrunners. EMPIRE has a female showrunner, and so does NEW GIRL.
