FOX has released trailers for some of the network’s upcoming dramas and comedies as part of the 2017-18 season.

THE ORVILLE

From executive producer and creator Seth MacFarlane and directed by Jon Favreau, this one-hour science fiction drama series is set 400 years in the future that follows the adventures of the U.S.S. 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. In the 25th century, Earth is part of the Planet Union, a far-reaching, advanced and mostly peaceful civilization with a fleet of 3,000 ships. Down on his luck after a bitter divorce, Planetary Union officer Ed Mercer (MacFarlane) finally gets his chance to command one of these ships: the U.S.S. Orville. Determined to prove his worth and write a new chapter in his life, Ed finds that task all the more difficult when the First Officer assigned to his ship is his ex-wife, Kelly Grayson (Adrienne Palicki). As the new commander, Ed assembles a qualified, but eccentric crew, including his best friend, Gordon Malloy (Scott Grimes), who has problems with authority, but is the best helmsman in the fleet; Dr. Claire Finn (Penny Johnson Jerald), one of the Union’s most accomplished physicians; Bortus (Peter Macon), an alien from a single-sex species; Isaac (Mark Jackson), an artificial life-form from a machine society that thinks biological life-forms are inferior; navigator John Lamar (J. Lee), whose casual humor cuts through even the most dire situations; Alara Kitan (Halston Sage) a young inexperienced security officer whose home planet’s high gravity gives her superior physical strength; and Yaphit, a gelatinous creature voiced by comedian Norm Macdonald. Somehow, Ed and Kelly must put the past behind them and, with the help of the crew, navigate fascinating and sometimes dangerous adventures in outer space, as well as the tumultuous captivating day-to-day personal relationships with their colleagues.

 

THE RESIDENT

Focusing on three doctors at different stages of their careers and a dedicated young nurse, this is a provocative new medical drama that rips back the curtain to reveal the truth of what really happens, both good and bad, in hospital across the country. Meet. Dr. Conrad Hawkins (Matt Czuchry), one of the best doctors at Chastain Park Memorial Hospital. Charming, arrogant and only a third-year resident, Conrad does everything in the most unconventional way possible. Along with treating patients, Conrad believes it is his job to burst the illusions of first-year residents, like Dr. Devon Pravesh (Manish Dayal) and turn them into real-life doctors. Devon is an innocent idealist, who wears his finely tuned moral compass and passion for science like armor. With Conrad’s help, however, Devon quickly discovers the reality of his chosen profession is not what he imagined, and that ethical lines are often blurred. Nothing, not even the best medical school in the country, could have prepared him for what he’s about to learn. As Devon accompanied Conrad through the hospital’s halls, he meets distinguished chief of surgery Dr. Randolph Bell (Bruce Greenwood), the face of the hospital and its sought-after doctor, whose diminishing skills, and the errors they cause, are covered with the help of allies under his command; Dr. Mina Okafor (Shaunette Renée Wilson), a rising star surgeon from Nigeria who is threatening Bell’s dominance, but who is also in the US on a list; and Nicolette Nevin (Emily VanCamp), one of Chastain Memoirial’s most respected nurses and Conrad’s on-again off-again romantic partner. While Conrad opens Devon’s eyes to the stark realities of hospital life, the once-optimistic young doctor soon realizes that the practice of medicine is a business, like any other. Not all patients are angels and not all doctors are gods, but one thing’s for sure: expectations are meant to be shattered.

From 20th Century FOX Television, Antoine Fuqua, Amy Holden Jones, David Boorstein and Oly Obst executive produce. Hayley Schore and Roshan Sethi co-executive produce. Amy Holden Jones, Hayley Shore and Sethi write.

 

GHOSTED

Starring Craig Robinson and Adam Scott, this single-camera, action-comedy about the unlikely partnership between two down-on-their-luck polar opposites tasked with an even more unlikely missions: saving the human race from aliens. Leroy Wright (Robinson) is a cynical skeptic and former missing persons detective, who, if we’re speaking Franklin, thinks that “aliens” are a big ole bunch of B.S. and that people who believe in them are certifiably. nuts… People like Max Jennifer (Scott). Max is a genius “true believer” in the paranormal who’s convinced his wife was abducted by aliens. At low points in their lives, both Leroy and Max are recruited by Captain Ava Lafrey (Ally Walker), a take no-prisoners, former Air Force test pilot and head of the Bureau Underground, a secret government organization investigating paranormal cases. Lafrey, along with her staff– Barry Shaw (Adeel Akhtar), an overly friendly forensic pathologist, and Delilah Ward, a highly opinionated tech specialist— will support Leroy and Max in their quest for answers. Now, this heroic group of underdogs will look into “unexplained” activity in Los Angeles that often leads them to scary, thrilling and hilarious places, as they attempt to uncover the truth and keep the earth rotating on its axis for at least one more day.

 

L.A. TO VEGAS

From executive producers Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Lon Zimmet and Steve Levitan, this single-camera ensemble comedy is 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. Welcome to Jackpot Airlines, a budget carrier whose junket flight from LA to Vegas and back again, is filled with dreamers looking for that big score. Holding (or, more to the point, barely holding) these voyages together is Ronnie (Kim Matula), a long suffering flight attendant who tries to keep her cool (oftentimes with little success) whether she’s dealing with a bi-polar bride-to-be or the dead body in Row 13. Managing the revolving door of bachelor parties and 21st birthdays gets even trickier when Ronnie develops a “location-ship” with Colin (Ed Weeks) a regular passenger and an economics professor, whose son and soon-to-be ex-wife live in Vegas. Further complicating her job every weekend is Captain Dave (Dylan McDermott), the narcissistic pilot whose fighter-pilot dreams never quite worked out; Bernard (Nathan Lee Graham), the always-positive career flight attendant who thinks there’s no flight more magical than the LA-to-Vegas; Artem (Peter Stormare) the genial professional gambler who serves as the plane’s residential (but unofficial) bookie; and Nichole (Olivia Macklin), the sweet-natured, part-time stripper who’s a lot savvier than people realize. It won’t be easy, but this unlikely group of miscreants and dreamers will eventually go from being strangers on a plane to a supportive, if unconventional family… from Friday to Sunday… whether they like it or not.

From 20th Century FOX and Gary Sanchez Productions, Lon Zimmet writes and executive producers. Steve Levitan directs and executive producers. Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Chris Henchy and Owen Burke executive produce.
