Fox has handed out renewals to its two freshman dramas, ACCUSED and ALERT: MISSING PERSONS UNIT.

According to Fox, “based on the BBC’s BAFTA-winning crime anthology, ACCUSED is a collection of 15 intense, topical and exquisitely human stories of crime and punishment. Told from the defendant’s point of view through flashbacks, each episode is a fast-paced provocative thriller, exploring a different crime, in a different city, with an entirely original cast…ACCUSED is co-produced by Sony Pictures Television and FOX Entertainment, and executive-produced and developed for American television by Howard Gordon, and executive-produced by Alex Gansa, David Shore, Glenn Geller, Erin Gunn, All3Media America’s Jacob Cohen-Holmes, and Jimmy McGovern, Sita Williams, Roxy Spencer and Louise Pedersen for All3Media International. Frank Siracusa and John Weber also serve as executive producers. Created by Jimmy McGovern, the original series debuted in 2010 on BBC One.”

ALERT, “set in the Philadelphia Police Department’s Missing Persons Unit…features a heart-pounding, life-or-death search for a missing person driven by police officers Jason Grant (Scott Caan) and Nikki Batista’s (Dania Ramirez), whose complicated personal lives are evolving after the loss of their son. ALERT is co-produced by Sony Pictures Television and FOX Entertainment. The series is executive produced by Jamie Foxx and John Eisendrath, who also served as showrunner for Season One. Carla Kettner is set to join the creative team as executive producer and showrunner for Season Two.” Kettner’s credits include BONES, THE BLACKLIST, ZOO, and PANHANDLE.

“ACCUSED and ALERT stand out as two of this season’s new broadcast and multi-platform success stories,” said Michael Thorn, President, Scripted Programming, of FOX Entertainment, in a statement. “Looking to 2023-24, we’ll continue to deliver on the powerful storytelling coming from both series, building on our incredible partnership with Sony and further solidifying FOX’s strong slate of dramas, giving our schedule tremendous season-to-season stability.”

“With ACCUSED, Howard Gordon has taken the crime anthology to new heights and acclaim, featuring an all-star roster of directors and talent headlining gripping episodes that entertain viewers with a provocative, fresh take on many of the most relevant, timely issues of our day,” added Thorn. “Scott, Dania, John and Jamie have done an incredible job launching ALERT and bringing its story into heart-pounding focus, giving us an emotionally intense procedural drama that’s primed for even more success as Carla takes the day-to-day reins, continuing the great work we’ve seen this season.”

“We are excited to continue our long partnership with FOX to bring more ACCUSED and ALERT to audiences around the world,” said Katherine Pope, President, Sony Pictures Television. “It’s wonderful to see these timely, poignant stories resonating with viewers, and we want to congratulate the writers, producers, cast and crew on their success.
