It’s the time of the year when TV stations start thinking about next year. With canceled or ending shows, comes many new favorite shows (at least, hopefully). First up was NBC’s Upfront event with three new shows they think you’ll love.
Bluff City Law
Sydney Keller (Caitlin McGee) is a lawyer who wants the best for her clients, even if her morals make her end up in jail. There’s someone just like her, her father Elijah Strait (Jimmy Smits). The two team up, fight for the little guy, end up in jail, and change the world for the better.
‘Bluff City Law’ airs Mondays at 10 EST in Fall 2019.
It’s tough to be an immigrant. To become a citizen in America you have to pass the Citizenship test, a test of the history of American and its government (mind you, I don’t think many people born in America could pass it but that’s beside the point). This show follows Garrett Shah (Kal Pen) a teacher who wants to help some immigrants pass that test. There are people from all walks of life including Brady (Moses Storm) a white dude whose not sure where he was from originally, Griselda (Diana Marie Riva) a woman with one too many jobs (I really hope that’s an ongoing thing in the episodes), Drazen (Tudor Petrut) the Russian who thinks Disco is a verb, Hakim (Samba Schutte) a nerd from Ethiopia, and Mei Lin (Poppy Liu) and Jun Ho (Joel Kim Booster) the crazy rich Asians. It’s from the executive producers of The Good Place and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, so hopefully, it can live up to those shows.
‘Sunnyside’ airs Thursday at 9:30 EST in Fall 2019.
Lastly, we have a bit of a musical drama. Arthur (Bradley Whitford) is an Ivy League professor whose hit a bit of a dip in his life. He’s drinking too much and about given up on life. He’s found by a rural church choir and they need some help, both on stage and off. Anna Camp, Tymberlee Hill, Geno Segers, and Rizwan Manji are all part of his misfit group that will hopefully lead to a heartwarming movie.
‘Perfect Harmony’ airs Thursdays at 8:30 EST in Fall 2019.
