FOX Adds Pair of Dramas, Animated Comedies & Unscripted Series


While it has yet to release its fall schedule, FOX has unveiled its content slate for the 2023-24 season, with two new dramas, two fresh animated comedies and two additional unscripted series.

FOX’s new dramas include the medical drama Doc, based on the Italian series Doc—Nelle tue mani. Co-produced by Sony Pictures Television and FOX Entertainment Studios, the drama centers on the hard-charging, brilliant Dr. Amy Elias, Chief of Internal and Family Medicine at Westside Hospital in Minneapolis.

From prolific executive producer and director John Wells (Shameless, The West Wing, ER) and executive producer and writer Matt Kester (Animal Kingdom, Outsiders), the Hawaii lifeguard drama Rescue: HI-Surf follows the personal and professional lives of the heavy-water lifeguards who patrol and protect the North Shore of O’ahu.

FOX’s new animated comedies include Krapopolis, from creator Dan Harmon (Rick and Morty, Community). Set in mythical Ancient Greece, the series centers on a flawed family of humans, gods and monsters that tries to run one of the world’s first cities without killing each other.

The animated comedy Grimsburg stars Jon Hamm (Mad Men, Top Gun: Maverick), who also serves as an executive producer on the series. It centers on a brilliant detective with opinions as eccentric as his taste, who can’t help but prioritize his own personal problems.

On the unscripted slate, the game show Snake Oil is hosted and produced by comedian David Spade (Saturday Night Live, Just Shoot Me) and executive produced by Will Arnett (LEGO Masters, Arrested Development) through his Electric Avenue Productions. In each round, contestants choose a pair of entrepreneurs and learn about their extremely unique (and often bizarre) products through visuals, a custom-made infomercial exclusively produced for Snake Oil and by quizzing the business representative themselves. With the help of their celebrity advisors, the contestants must then decide who is selling an authentic product and who is hawking a sham.

We Are Family is an all-new music guessing game show hosted and executive produced by Jamie Foxx and co-hosted by his daughter, Corinne Foxx. It will feature a studio audience of 100 contestants playing through multiple rounds of clues and gameplay to win up to $100,000 each by correctly guessing which celebrity the performer is related to before they are revealed.

Returning FOX series include the dramas 9-1-1: Lone Star (season five), Accused (season two), Alert: Missing Persons Unit (season two) and The Cleaning Lady (season three); the comedy Animal Control (season two); the animated series Bob’s Burgers (season 14), Family Guy (season 22), The Great North (season four) and The Simpsons (season 35); and the unscripted series Farmer Wants a Wife (season two), Hell’s Kitchen (season 22), I Can See Your Voice (season three), LEGO Masters (season four), The Masked Singer (season ten), Name That Tune (season three), Next Level Chef (season three) and Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test (season two). There are additional series renewals to be announced.
