Fox Executives On Cancelling Brooklyn 99 And Picking Up Last Man Standing

The decision to give Brooklyn 99 the ax stemmed from Fox's new Friday night lineup, which the network looks to fill with more new shows.

"This year, we launched four of the top 10 new shows on broadcast, which led to a very strong roster of young series returning for their sophomore seasons", said Dana Walden and Gary Newman, chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group. Meanwhile, "Gotham" and "The Orville", will be held back for midseason.

Fox reportedly planned to rescue "Last Man Standing" from its surprising cancellation a year ago, but they could not find the right schedule for the sitcom. The show is expected to air at 8 p.m. when it finally returns after more than a year off the air. "It reminded us we have a huge iconic star in our Fox family in Tim Allen".

"We're really pleased with how "The X-Files" did this past season", Thorn said. Closing out Sunday nights will be the freshman multi-camera comedy Rel, inspired by the life of Lil Rel Howery (Get Out, Insecure, The Carmichael Show). REL will be based on the comedian's life and will find him playing a Chicago father whose world is turned upside down after he discovers his wife is having an affair with his barber.

"He feels very much like a Fox character, and he and Jerrod (Carmichael) produced a really amusing and appealing pilot".


Last week, Fox canceled several comedies on its lineup, including Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Fox will introduce an equal number of shows next season, including The Cool Kids, an ensemble comedy about rebellious friends in a retirement community. "The Cool Kids" pilot was co-written by Charlie Day, best known as an executive producer and cast member of the FX comedy "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia".

"Proven Innocent": This legal drama follows an underdog criminal defence firm led by a fierce and uncompromising lawyer (Rachelle Lefevre) who was wrongfully convicted in a sensational murder case that made her a household name and a media obsession. Also, a second installment of "Cosmos" will air. And again, we were trying to create a more cohesive schedule, and scheduling "Brooklyn' was going to prevent us from launching something new".

Fox programmers are going with a conservative game plan this fall with the addition of Thursday night National Football League games.

"And that certainly made us think that this is a really good opportunity, that for broadcast viewers a beloved star in a really amusing multi-cam that has, again, a little bit easier entry point than a serialized comedy was a good idea".

Thursdays are dedicated to football.
