'Murphy Brown' reboot pits character against conservative son's Fox News-like show

CBS Exec on 'Murphy Brown' Reboot Ratings: 'I'm Not Sure We'll Get 'Roseanne' Numbers'

The new lineup features a slew of new reboot shows, including "Magnum P.I." and "Murphy Brown".

Another new CBS fall drama, which will air 8-9 Sunday, is "God Friended Me".

Following CBS' upfront press breakfast, the network's executives revealed more details about the setup of Murphy Brown 2.0, which comes from original's creator Diane English. "We're going to put a lot behind "Murphy Brown" and sure going to try like hell to get as big an audience there as we can", Kahl continued.

Thomas Magnum will be on CBS this fall, and so will Tom Selleck.

"FBI" is sandwiched by "NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service" and "NCIS: New Orleans" in the Tuesday schedule.


CBS also helped Berlanti reach that number with an order for The Red Line, an event series for midseason that he's producing with Ava DuVernay (A Wrinkle in Time) that follows the stories of three families in Chicago in the aftermath of a white police officer's mistaken shooting of an African American doctor.

The Neighborhood stars New Girl's Max Greenfield as a man who moves his family from the Midwest to a neighborhood in Los Angeles where suddenly not everyone looks the same. When Dave Johnson (Max Greenfield) and his family arrive from MI, they're unfazed that their new dream home is located in a community quite different from their small town. 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.

- "Happy Together", which stars Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West as a happily married couple in their 30s who begin to reconnect with their younger, cooler selves when an exuberant young pop star drawn to their super-ordinary suburban life (Felix Mallard) unexpectedly moves in with them. He still is a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan and drives around in a vintage Ferari. FBI, set in the bureau's NY office, stars Missy Peregrym (Rookie Blue), Zeeko Zaki (Valor), Jeremy Sisto (Law & Order), and Ebonée Noel (Still Star-Crossed). 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.

The original Murphy Brown centered on the fictional newsmagazine FYI, but with CBS reviving it in 2018, the reboot will have a different media focus. Aiding her in the ratings war will be long-time characters "Corky" (Faith Ford), "Frank" (Joe Regalbuto), and "Miles Silverberg" (Grant Shaud). Jake McDorman will play Murphy's son, who has a conservative morning news show, reports EW. His curiosity piqued, he eventually finds his way to someone the "God Account" suggests (Violett Beane) and they "find themselves investigating God's friend suggestions and inadvertently helping people in need".
