2015 Upfronts: CBS Announces Its 2015-2016 Primetime Lineup

CBS-logo-old

CBS today unveiled its 2015-2016 primetime lineup, featuring seven new shows and 22 returning series. CBS will build on a schedule that will finish the current season as America’s most-watched network in viewers for the 12th time in 13 years, including the last seven years straight.

The new fall dramas are: the heart-pounding medical series CODE BLACK, set in the busiest, most notorious ER in the nation; the fast-paced LIMITLESS, based on the feature film with Bradley Cooper, starring Jake McDorman as an average guy who can suddenly access 100% of his brain capacity with a mysterious pill; and SUPERGIRL, starring Melissa Benoist in the title role based on the DC Comics superhero.

The new fall comedies are: ANGEL FROM HELL, about a loud, colorful, often inappropriate woman who claims to be a guardian angel, starring Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Jane Lynch and Maggie Lawson; and LIFE IN PIECES, an irreverent look at a family’s sometimes awkward, often hilarious and ultimately beautiful milestone moments, starring Academy and Emmy Award winner Dianne Wiest, Emmy Award winner James Brolin, Zoe Lister Jones, Colin Hanks, Angelique Cabral, Thomas Sadoski, Betsy Brandt and Dan Bakkedahl.

Two new dramas also set to premiere in 2015-2016 include the buddy-cop drama RUSH HOUR, based on the successful film franchise, starring Justin Hires as a maverick detective from Los Angeles and John Foo as a stoic detective from Hong Kong who knock heads when they are forced to work together; and CRIMINAL MINDS: BEYOND BORDERS, a CRIMINAL MINDS spinoff starring Emmy Award winner Gary Sinise about the International Division of the FBI tasked with solving crimes and rescuing Americans in danger while abroad.
