It feels like it’s been raining every day where I live, and the weather has me wanting to cocoon on the couch with a good book or a good TV show. Of course I can’t do either because I have to work, but a girl can covet, right? I have a bunch of books in my “Can read when I finish writing Up From the Grave!” pile, and here are some TV shows coming out in the fall that I’m looking forward to.
DRACULA, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Nonso Anozie and Jessica De Gouw. Do I really need to elaborate on why I’m looking forward to this show? . Link to trailer here.
SLEEPY HOLLOW, starring Tom Minson, Nicole Beharie, Richard Cetrone, John Cho, and Gordon Dillard Jr. I’ve been fascinated by the story of the Headless Horseman since I was a child, so I can’t wait to see this retelling setting Headless and Ichabod Crane (and a sexy Ichabod at that!) in modern times. In fact, I’m so sold on the story that I stopped watching the trailer halfway through so I wouldn’t be spoiled on any plot points. Can’t wait! Trailer link here.
ALMOST HUMAN, starring Karl Urban, Michael Ealy, and Lili Taylor. Did you see the part where it’s starring Karl Urban? That alone would’ve sold me. Add in the show being produced by J.J. Adams (who produced Fringe and directed the new Star Trek movies, to name a few) and the cool-looking scifi elements in the trailer and I’m marking this as must-see tv. Link to trailer.
Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., starring Clark Gregg, Brett Dalton, Ming-Na Wen, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge and Chloe Bennet. Produced by Joss Whedon. I probably don’t need to say more to some of you, but as a superhero movie junkie and a big Whedon fan, I’m all over this one. Plus, it proves what I’ve hoped for since seeing The Avengers – agent Coulson isn’t dead! *throws confetti* Long live agent Coulson! Trailer link here.
So, that’s what I’m looking forward to in new shows. Am I missing any exciting debuts?
