L.A. Screenings: New from Warner Bros. International TV Distribution


The courtroom drama All Rise and new Chuck Lorre comedy Bob ♥ Abishola are among the series being screened by Warner Bros. International Television Distribution (WBITD) for buyers in Los Angeles.

The drama All Rise, which was ordered to series for CBS Mondays this fall, pulls back the curtain on the court system and follows the dedicated, chaotic, hopeful, and sometimes absurd lives of the judges.

Lorre’s Bob ♥ Abishola, landing on CBS’s Monday slate, is a love story about a middle-aged compression sock businessman from Detroit who unexpectedly falls for his cardiac nurse, a Nigerian immigrant, while recovering from a heart attack and sets his sights on winning her over.

Orange Is the New Black alum Ruby Rose makes her debut as Batwoman in the new Gotham-set series Batwoman, launching on The CW this fall in a Sunday slot.

Katy Keene, a Riverdale spin-off, features among its cast Lucy Hale. It is one of the many series Greg Berlanti has going this fall. The show is set for The CW midseason.

Berlanti is also working on Prodigal Son, which stars Tom Payne as the son of a convicted serial killer (Michael Sheen), who has made hunting murderers his life’s work. FOX has slated the show for Mondays this fall.
