More reality, drama on Fox

NEW YORK, May 17 (UPI) -- Fox will debut three of its seven new scripted series during the fall while continuing its heavy dose of reality fare, the television network said in New York.

The strategy allows Fox to concentrate promotional efforts on two dramas and its Kelsey Grammer-Patricia Heaton comedy, Variety reported Thursday.

When "American Idol" and "24" start airing in January, the network said it will launch the remaining four shows, including its futuristic "The Sarah Connor Chronicles." Other new offerings planned for the spring include the legal drama "Canterbury's Law" and comedies "The Rules for Starting Over" and "The Return of Jezebel James."

"This is the most stable and most vibrant schedule ever presented by Fox -- one that is sure to help us secure our fourth consecutive season as the No. 1 network in key demos," Fox Entertainment President Peter Liguori said.

Fox's fall schedule includes the debut of "Nashville," a reality show that follows singers trying to succeed in the Music City.

Fox ordered a double batch of chef Gordon Ramsey, whose "Hell's Kitchen" reality competition returns in June. Ramsey will host "Kitchen Nightmares" in the fall.
