Shortly before the Upfronts presentations, the broadcasters decide on old and new formats. CBS will soon have three new series. However, this time there is no comedy. A reboot to Early Edition also didn’t make it through the pilot phase. That’s what the new formats Fire Country, East New York and So Help Me Todd are all about.

The US networks will discontinue some old series by May at the latest to make room for new formats. Which new series did Magnum PI, Good Sam, B Positive, United States of Al or How We Roll have to give way to? CBS isn’t in the mood for a laugh these days because, for the first time in a long while, it hasn’t ordered a new comedy series. Instead, there are three drama series that will compete for the eyes of US viewers from the 2022/2023 fall season.

Fire Country

Fire Country was initially titled “Cal Fire” developed. Max Thieriot (SEAL Team), who is also involved behind the scenes, takes on the leading role.
