At this week’s Television Critics Association’s summer press tour, FOX presented new series Almost Family and Prodigal Son. You can watch new previews for both using the players below.
Almost Family will premiere on Wednesday, October 2 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Executive producer Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood) and writer Annie Weisman (About A Boy, Desperate Housewives) bring you Almost Family, the story of an unusual family formed through extreme odds, exploring such hot-button issues as identity, human connection and what it truly means to be a family.
An only child (Brittany Snow, the Pitch Perfect franchise, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) finds her life turned upside down when her father (Academy Award winner Timothy Hutton, American Crime, Ordinary People) reveals that, over the course of his prize-winning career as a pioneering fertility doctor, he used his own sperm to conceive upwards of a hundred children, including two new sisters (Megalyn Echikunwoke, The Following, 90210, and Emily Osment, The Kominsky Method, Young & Hungry). As these three young women slowly embrace their new reality, they will attempt to form an untraditional bond as sisters, even as they must welcome a tidal wave of new siblings into their rapidly expanding family.
Based on the original Endemol Shine Australia series, Sisters, from Jonathan Gavin and Imogen Banks, the series also stars Mustafa Elzein (Sequestered), Mo McRae (Big Little Lies, Pitch) and Victoria Cartagena (Manifest).
Crime drama Prodigal Son will premiere on Monday, September 23 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Prodigal Son is a fresh take on a crime franchise with a provocative and outrageous lead character and a darkly comedic tone, from Emmy Award-nominated executive producers Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter (Riverdale, You) and writers Chris Fedak (Deception, Chuck) and Sam Sklaver (Deception, Bored to Death).
The series stars Tom Payne (The Walking Dead) as the son of a convicted serial killer (Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Michael Sheen, Masters of Sex, Frost/Nixon), who has made hunting murderers his life’s work.
The series also stars Bellamy Young (Scandal), Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Lou Diamond Phillips (Longmire, Stand and Deliver), Halston Sage (The Orville), Aurora Perrineau (The Carmichael Show), Frank Harts (The Path) and Keiko Agena (Dirty John).
