Fox TV pushes change in TV season

April 19, 2004 at 3:12 PM   |   Comments

LOS ANGELES, April 19 (UPI) -- Fox TV is launching six new series in June, as part of its effort to replace the conventional TV programming season with a new model.

The network announced Monday it will premiere the dramas "The Jury" and "North Shore" in June, along with comedies "Method & Red" and "Quintuplets" and reality shows "The Casino" and "The Simple Life 2." Fox will also add repeats of the new series to its regular schedule.

Fox Broadcasting President of Entertainment Gail Berman called the move a significant step in the network's two year campaign to develop a year-round programming schedule.

Berman said the launch of the new series, just days after the current, traditional TV season ends, is designed to keep the network's programming "fresh and compelling ... continually throughout the year."

"The Jury" -- created by a team led by Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson and Emmy-winning writer-producer Tom Fontana -- will be the first of the new series to get a summer premier on Fox when it debuts on June 8.
