With the major studios currently preparing their lineups for the 2018-19 season, a recent Screen Rant article looked at anticipated reboots and new productions. New ABC programs include A Million Little Things, which will focus on the lives of a group of Boston friends who came together unexpectedly and now face intertwined relationship and career issues.
Another anticipated ABC show, The Rookie, will follow the trials and tribulations of a “small town guy” who experiences a life-changing incident and decides to pursue a long held dream of becoming a police officer in the LAPD. As the oldest rookie on the force, key questions center on whether humor and determination will be enough to see him through.
Among the updated shows slated for production is a remake of Magnum P.I., which aired on CBS from 1980 to 1988. With Candice Bergen and many of her costars reprising seminal roles, Murphy Brown is also set for a 30th anniversary reboot. The series will take in contemporary issues such as fake news and social media amid a cultural and political climate that has changed dramatically.
