We've rounded up the available trailers for the new 2017/2018 offerings, so dive in and let us know which shows you'll be adding to your SideReel tracker.

 

ABC

Alex, Inc.

"Based on the podcast StartUp, Alex Schuman (Zach Braff, Scrubs) is a brilliant radio journalist, husband and father of two who is about to do something crazy---quit his job and start his own company. He quickly discovers it's going to be a lot harder than he thought. Zach Braff stars, directs and is executive producer with Matt Tarses (Scrubs) and Davis Entertainment (Dr. Ken, Blacklist)."

Marvel’s Inhumans

"Marvel's Inhumans explores the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city. After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where their surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them may prove to not only save them, but Earth itself."

The Good Doctor

"Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore, Bates Motel), a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, relocates from a quiet country life to join a prestigious hospital's surgical unit. Alone in the world and unable to personally connect with those around him, Shaun uses his extraordinary medical gifts to save lives and challenge the skepticism of his colleagues."

The Gospel of Kevin

"Kevin Finn (Jason Ritter, Parenthood), a cluelessly self-serving person, is on a dangerous path to despair. In a downward spiral, Kevin returns home to stay with his widowed twin sister (JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Once Upon a Time) and niece. On his first night there, an unlikely celestial being named Yvette appears to him and presents him with a mission -- to save the world."

The Mayor

"Young rapper Courtney Rose (Brandon Micheal Hall) needs his big break. For years, he's toiled away in a small inner-city apartment, making music in his junk-filled bedroom closet. Tired of waiting for opportunity, Courtney cooks up the publicity stunt of the century: Running for mayor of his hometown in California to generate buzz for his music career. Unfortunately for Courtney, his master plan goes wildly awry, ending in the most terrifying of outcomes: An election victory. With the help of his mother (Yvette Nicole Brown, Community) and friends, including Valentina (Glee's Lea Michele), Courtney will have to overcome his hubris if he wants to transform the struggling city he loves."

Ten Days in the Valley

"Ten Days in the Valley stars Kyra Sedgwick as Jane Sadler, an overworked television producer and single mother in the middle of a separation whose life is turned upside down when her young daughter goes missing in the middle of the night. Just like her controversial police TV show, everything is a mystery, everyone has a secret and no one can be trusted."

Deception (midseason)

"When his career is ruined by scandal, superstar magician Cameron Black has only one place to turn to practice his art of deception, influence and illusion - the FBI. Using every trick in the book and inventing new ones, he will help the government catch the world's most elusive criminals while staging the biggest illusions of his career."

For The People (midseason)

"Set in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, aka 'The Mother Court,' this new Shondaland drama follows brand-new lawyers working for both the defense and the prosecution handling the most high-profile and high-stakes federal cases in the country - all as their lives intersect in and out of the courtroom."

Roseanne (midseason)

"When it premiered on ABC, the series broke new ground for its realistic portrayal of a working-class family, the Conners, barely scraping by in the fictional town of Lanford, Illinois. It also dominated the ratings as one of the highest-rated television series on the air for its near-decade run. A comedy about ordinary people who faced day-to-day survival with a sense of the absurdity of it all, the inimitable Roseanne was its epicenter. Lauded for its humor, relevance, warmth and honesty, the Conner family will continue to deal with the economic challenges of living pay check to pay check in 2018."

Splitting Up Together (midseason)

"Based on the Danish series, Splitting Up Together is the story of a couple (Jenna Fischer, The Office, Oliver Hudson, Scream Queens) whose marriage is reignited by their divorce."

The Crossing (midseason)

"Refugees from a war-torn country seek asylum in a small American fishing town, only the country these people are from is America... and the war they are fleeing hasn't happened yet. As the government tries to uncover the truth behind this mysterious migration only one thing is certain: The lives of the people here - both the townspeople and these newcomers - will never be the same."

 

CBS

9JKL

"9JKL stars Mark Feuerstein in a family comedy inspired by his real life. Josh Roberts (Feuerstein) is a new divorcé and actor between projects who moves home to New York to regroup, living in an apartment sandwiched between his doting, meddlesome parents on one side and his competitive brother, sister-in-law and their new baby on the other. As Josh's family literally comes at him from both sides, he realizes he desperately needs to establish some personal boundaries, because his loving family is always going to be right there for him. Always."

Me, Myself & I

"Me, Myself & I stars Bobby Moynihan in a comedy about the defining moments in one man's life over three distinct periods - as a 14-year-old in 1991, at age 40 in present day and at age 65 in 2042. During these pivotal periods of yesterday, today and tomorrow, Alex always finds a way to move forward with determination and humor, knowing his life story isn't defined by the bad things that happen to him, but instead by how he chooses to deal with them."

Seal Team

"Seal Team stars David Boreanaz in a military drama that follows the professional and personal lives of the most elite unit of Navy SEALs as they train, plan and execute the most dangerous, high stakes missions our country can ask of them. Deployed on clandestine missions worldwide at a moment's notice, and knowing the toll it takes on them and their families, this tight-knit SEAL team displays unwavering patriotism and fearless dedication, even in the face of overwhelming odds."

S.W.A.T.

"Inspired by the television series and feature film, S.W.A.T. stars Shemar Moore as a locally born S.W.A.T. sergeant newly tasked to run a specialized tactical unit that is the last stop in law enforcement in Los Angeles. Torn between loyalty to the streets where he was raised and allegiance to his brothers in blue, former Marine Daniel 'Hondo' Harrelson (Moore) has everything it takes to successfully bridge the divide between his two worlds and excel at leading his dedicated team of brave men and women as they risk their lives to protect the community."

Wisdom of the Crowd

"Wisdom of the Crowd stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Jeremy Piven as a visionary tech innovator who creates a cutting-edge crowdsourcing app to solve his daughter's murder, and revolutionizes crime solving in the process. Inspired by the notion that a million minds are better than one, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Jeffrey Tanner (Piven) develops 'Sophe,' an online platform for publicly shared information, and recruits the original cop who searched for his daughter's killer, Det. Tommy Cavanaugh (Richard T. Jones), to work with him. As Tanner taps into the 'wisdom of the crowd,' his unexpected success fuels his determination to solve even more cases than just the one that's personal to him."

Young Sheldon

"For 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage), it isn't easy growing up in East Texas. Being a once-in-a-generation mind capable of advanced mathematics and science isn't always helpful in a land where church and football are king. And while the vulnerable, gifted and somewhat naïve Sheldon deals with the world, his very normal family must find a way to deal with him. The Big Bang Theory's multiple Emmy Award winner Jim Parsons narrates as Adult Sheldon."

Coming midseason: Instinct, By the Book

 

FOX

Ghosted

"Starring Craig Robinson (The Office, This Is the End) and Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation, Big Little Lies), Ghosted is a single-camera, action-comedy about the unlikely partnership between two down-on-their-luck polar opposites tasked with an even more unlikely mission: saving the human race from aliens."

The Gifted

"The Gifted tells the story of a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers.

However, when their teenage kids, Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind, Gotham) and Andy (Percy Hynes White, Night at the Museum 3), are involved in an incident at their high school which reveals they are mutants, Reed and Caitlin do all in their power to protect their children."

Orville, a mid-level exploratory vessel. Its crew, both human and alien, faces the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the familiar, often humorous problems of regular people in a workplace... even though some of those people are from other planets, and the workplace is a faster-than-light spaceship."

The Resident (midseason)

"Focusing on three doctors at different stages of their careers and a dedicated young nurse, The Resident is a provocative new medical drama that rips back the curtain to reveal the truth of what really happens, both good and bad, in hospitals across the country."

L.A. to Vegas (midseason)

"From executive producers Will Ferrell (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Elf), Adam McKay (The Big Short), Lon Zimmet (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) and Steve Levitan (Modern Family), LA to Vegas is a single-camera ensemble comedy about an airline crew and the eccentric passengers who, every weekend, take the roundtrip flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas with one goal in mind - to come back a winner."

Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders

"Starring the incomparable Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Edie Falco (The Sopranos, Nurse Jackie), this new eight-episode true-crime installment of the powerhouse Law & Order franchise delivers a gripping in-depth dramatization of the notorious murder case that changed America forever. When the Menendez brothers were tried on national TV for brutally killing their parents in Beverly Hills, their story became a national obsession.

"While D.I.A. Deputy Director Patricia Campbell (Anne Heche) and her team of analysts wield the world's most advanced surveillance technology from Washington, D.C., Adam Dalton and his heroic Special Ops squad of highly trained undercover specialists use their unbreakable bond and commitment to freedom to save lives of innocent people and execute missions in some of the most dangerous places in the world."

The CW

Dynasty

"Fallon Carrington (Elizabeth Gillies) is charismatic, cunning, and poised to become the new COO of her father's global energy empire - or so she thinks. When her father, Blake Carrington, (Grant Show) summons Fallon and her brother, Steven, (James Mackay) home to the family compound in Atlanta, Fallon is horrified to learn that the reunion isn't to announce her promotion - but rather to make the acquaintance of their stepmother-to-be, Cristal (Nathalie Kelley)."

Valor

"An elite unit of U.S. Army helicopter pilots called the Shadow Raiders are sent on a top secret mission to Somalia, a mission that goes terribly awry. Only two members of the team return safely: Warrant Officer Nora Madani (Christina Ochoa), one of the unit's first female helicopter pilots, and her commanding officer, Captain Leland Gallo (Matt Barr), while the whereabouts of their comrade Jimmy Kam (W. Tre Davis) are unknown. Now back in the U.S., Madani and Gallo are the only ones who know the truth about what really went wrong in Somalia."

Black Lightning (midseason)

"Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) is a man wrestling with a secret. As the father of two daughters and principal of a charter high school that also serves as a safe haven for young people in a New Orleans neighborhood overrun by gang violence, he is a hero to his community. Nine years ago, Pierce was a hero of a different sort. Gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, he used those powers to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. However, after too many nights with his life on the line, and seeing the effects of the damage and loss that his alter ego was inflicting on his family, he left his Super Hero days behind and settled into being a principal and a dad."

Life Sentence (midseason)

"Life Sentence follows Stella (Lucy Hale), a girl who has spent the last eight years living like she was dying (because she was). Just like the 'manic pixie dream girl' heroines in her favorite sappy cancer movies, Stella traveled the world, faced her darkest fears and found true love on a whirlwind trip to Paris. But when Stella finds out that her cancer has been cured, she is suddenly forced to face the long-term consequences of the 'live in the moment' decisions she made, including marrying a total stranger. And if that's not enough, she also finds out that her 'perfect family' isn't so perfect after all. Turns out, because she was dying, everyone in her life hid their problems from her. But, now that she's well, all bets are off."

You heard from me first Splitting together, Deception, SWAT, The Brave, Dynasty are DOA. They will be cancelled after only 1 season.

Manly mix :/ Not many intresting new shows. Splitting up's original was great, trailer seemed to have taken a bit different angle on the plot.

What a bummer that Cristela Alonzo is so prominently featured in the trailer for The Gospel of Kevin when her role is being recast.

Really looking forward to Inhumans, Deception, Dynasty (love the original) and especially The Crossing. Let's hope they all last longer than just the first few episodes or the first season.

Can't see any of these being overly successful. Gospel of Kevin strikes me as a serious candidate for cancelled after the first episode - it's already had an angel of death, Joanna Garcia, cast in it. She's a great actress but everything she's cast in is cancelled.

"The Orville" is what I've been waiting for for year - funny scifi comedy. And then Seth MacFarlane is in it so it's going to suck. A Million ways to Die in The West - In Space!

Seth Macrfarlane is an amazing voice actor, a wonderful singer, an accomplished writer and one of the worst on-screen actors I've ever seen. He will ruin that show.

The Orville is the only one that really jumps out at me, aside from maybe the Inhumans. The thing is that the Orville is on Fox, hopefully they let the show progress naturally and not try and force it like they have with other Sci-Fi shows in the past.

I was digging the Will & Grace video until they started singing. Yes, I know us gays are supposed to like musicals, but I don't like them mixed with my comedy (or my superhero shoes, or shows named The Magicians).

As a comic book geek and DC Fanboy who tries to watch every comic books show on television just to support the genre, can we please have one DC Comics television who that rivals the quality stuff that Marvel is putting out? The Gifted looks great. Not so sure about the Inhumans, though.

I agree with you about the Will and Grace show trailer. It's gay AF and not in a good way, but a stereotypical way. They should smash this vehicle in to a tree or run it off of a cliff in the Hollywood Hills.

I'm really looking forward to Deception and The good doctor, but there are a lot of show with potential to keep an eye on. I just hope they last long enough to actually watch them.

Most of the premises look pretty promising. I'll hold off on watching to ensure that the shows actually survive the first season. I've been burned way too many times in the past (I'm, looking at you Braindead, Limitless and Agent Carter)
