NEW YORK, N.Y. -- The Fox network is making a play for laughs next season, with four new comedies planned and a late Saturday-night series with Wanda Sykes.
“Glee” uses a pop-music soundtrack for an aspirational high school series and starts in the fall after getting a special preview Tuesday. Former New York Giant Michael Strahan is in a series about an ex-NFL star who goes back to live with his mother, and Fox is also doing a “Family Guy” spinoff.
“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” was canceled, but the low-rated “Dollhouse” was surprisingly brought back.
Fox will also air the summer hit “So You Think You Can Dance” in the fall.
