'Murphy Brown' Revival To Take On Cable Morning Show Wars: More Details


On Tuesdays, Bull's former berth between NCIS and NCIS: New Orleans will be filled by Federal Bureau of Investigation, a new procedural from University of Pennsylvania grad Dick Wolf, who also has four shows on NBC this fall: Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D.

The reboot will debut in the fall on CBS; the network ordered 13 episodes.

The Neighborhood stars Cedric the Entertainer, Max Greenfield (New Girl), and Tichina Arnold, and is about what happens when "the friendliest guy in the Midwest" (Greenfield) moves his family to a neighborhood in Los Angeles and tries to fit in a place where, as CBS puts it, "not everybody looks like him". While he remains unphased by the new diversity in his life, his opinionated next-door neighbor Calvin, played by Cedric the Entertainer, is anxious the family will mess up the culture on their street. Dave realizes that fitting into their new community is more complex than he expected, but if he can find a way to connect with Calvin, they have an excellent chance of making their new neighborhood their home. Jay Hernandez plays the 2018 model of Thomas Magnum, the private investigator that "Blue Bloods" star Tom Selleck portrayed for CBS in the 1980s.

The new comedies are "The Neighborhood", about a white family moving into a black neighborhood, and "Happy Together", which focuses on a pop star taking up residence in a young couple's spare room. He still is a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan and drives around in a vintage Ferari. These first-class agents bring all their talents, intellect and technical expertise to tenaciously investigate cases of tremendous magnitude, including terrorism, organized crime, and counterintelligence, in order to keep NY and the country safe.

Murphy's show will be called Murphy In The Morning; in the original series, she hosted a prime time news magazine. Turns out her biggest competitor is her own son (played by Limitless's Jake McDornan). Aiding her in the ratings war will be long-time characters "Corky" (Faith Ford), "Frank" (Joe Regalbuto), and "Miles Silverberg" (Grant Shaud).

"As its 30th anniversary approaches, Murphy Brown returns to a world of cable news, social media, fake news and a very different political and cultural climate", CBS said of the revival.

Brought together by the "God Account", the two find themselves investigating God's friend suggestions and inadvertently helping others in need.
