Today it was found out that Fox has put the nail in the coffin of a few shows that folks were interested in, making room for other new pilots and such for the upcoming 2011/2012 TV season!

We’ve already noted that Human Target, Breaking In and The Chicago Code were all cancelled by Fox. Now we can add Lie To Me to that list of dumped shows, and Traffic Light, if you watched that.

Shows that Fox has picked up to add to its slate of entertainment includes Alcatraz, Finder, New Girl & I Hate My Teenage Daughter.

About Alcatraz

Alcatraz is a Bad Robot (J.J. Abrams) production that will include stars Sam Neill, Jorge Garcia, Nagra Parminder & Stargate alumni Paul McGillion.

The show is about a team of FBI agents as they try to figure out the mystery behind a group of Alcatraz prisoners and guards who suddenly appear in present day, after having gone missing 30 years prior.

Other cast includes Jason Butler Harner, Jonny Coyne, Robert Forster, Santiago Cabrera and Sarah Jones.


About Finder

Finder or The Finder is the Bones spin-off that stars Geoff Stults as Walter Sherman, a man with an uncanny gift to find anyone and anything.

The episode of Bones where they pushed the spin-off premise on, was interesting. Me, I’m calling this “uncanny” gift an extreme form of profiling. And we know there are plenty of those around!

Other cast includes Michael Clarke Duncan who plays the legal adviser… of sorts, and Saffron Burrows also star.


New Girl and I Hate my Teenage Daughter are both comedies.
