Fall 2001 TV Lineup
is Looking Good!

July 19, 2001

ABC - CBS - FOX - NBC - UPN - WB

ABC

While letting us down with the lack of quality dark serials, ABC has provided us with a couple of good selection with their Big Picture Show this summer including Stephen King's Thinner and Casper. They haven't announced their Fall Big Picture Shows yet but let's hope they have something to send shivers up our spines.

 

 

CBS

WOLF LAKE

Cast of "Wolf Lake"New on CBS this fall, Wolf Lake is about a small Pacific Northwest town where its usual tranquility is being shattered by strange and gruesome occurrences. Soon it is discovered that some of the residents can shape-shift into wolves.

Salem Witch Trials

Also on CBS this fall will be the mini-series, SALEM WITCH TRIALS.
The series explores how the small Puritan community of 1692 Salem, Massachusetts, succumbs to mass hysteria, enabling a small influential force to haphazardly accuse, jail, convict and even kill members of its own church-going community. Based on real-life year-long witch trials, in which 156 innocent people were accused, 30 convicted and 20 killed.

The series will air in CBS' movie of the week spot on dates that have yet to be announced. I for one am hoping for an October broadcast.

Cast includes: Kirstie Alley, Shirley MacLaine, Alan Bates and Gloria Reuben

FOX Family

13 Days of Halloween

Fox Family will have the best Halloween lineup I've seen in years this Halloween. Starting October 19th, FF will fill their primetime lineup with a delectable variety of horror movies and special series. Movies will include, to name just a few, Adams Family Reunion, Casper, The Lake, When Good Ghouls Go Bad and Mad Monster Party! Definitely VCR worthy offerings.

Remember when you were a child and your friends dared you to say "Bloody Mary" five times in a dark room? Fox Family takes the dare to the next level in their Scariest Places on Earth series, hosted by Linda Blair, where friends and families are dared to spend the night in haunted places. Among the many scary places the series visits it takes you from the haunted cells of Alcatraz to the spooky bowls of the Queen Mary, it delves deep in to Palermo Catacombs and ends with a ghoulish night in Vlad the Impailer's castle.

The Chicago PD has an ultra secret task force for dealing with these creatures called... you guessed it, Special Unit 2SU2 hunts down problem links with the help of futuristic weapons and a little help from friendly links like Carl (Danny Woodburn) a kleptomaniac gnome. The final product comes out a little like a cross between The X-Files and Scooby Doo which makes for great fun.

Suddenly, their popularity skyrockets - if only with the dead. They find themselves anointed with the often amusing task of helping the dearly departed cope with their peculiar dilemmas so the dead can move on to the next world. The amulet puts the band's fragile relationships to the test when they find they can't get rid of it. The ensuing parade of apparitions demanding mortal assistance puts a strain on both their patience and sanity. Slowly, the trio realizes that this is their new lot in life - and that "moving on" isn't all it's cracked up to be.
