New Series Premiering in 2012
As the failed fall shows fall off the grid, new spring
shows are set to premier in 2012. Here are a few you might want to check
Premier Date: March 1, 2012
Weekly: Mondays 10/9c on NBC
Stars: Jason Isaacs, Laura Allen, and Dylan Minnette
Tagline: Two Dreams. One Reality.
The Plot: Life is good for Detective Michael Britton. He
has a beautiful wife, son, and life. Then things get a little weird.
After the family is involved in a car accident, Michaelís world is
turned upside down; and not for the typical reasons. Michael no longer
has one world, he has two; in one, his son survived the car accident and
his wife is dead, and in the other, his wife survived the car accident
and his son is dead. To make matters worse, Michael doesnít know which
world is real. Not only does each world lack one of his loved ones, but
each world has a completely different set of circumstances; for
instance, Michael has different partners and cases in each world. The
thing that eludes Michael is which world is real and which is a dream,
but Michael doesnít want to figure it out; knowing that means that he
canít have the best of both worlds.
Reminds Us Of: Premonition.
Premier Date: March 12, 2012
Weekly: Mondays at 9/8c on Fox
Stars: Kiefer Sutherland, David Mazouz, and Gugu
Tagline: We are all interconnected. Our lives are
invisibly tied to those whose destinies touch ours.
The Plot: A widower, Martin Bohm (Kiefer Sutherland),
must raise his son Jake (David Mazouz), an 11 year-old who is
emotionally challenged, never speaks, and doesnít allow anyone to touch
him. As if that wasnít difficult enough, Jake is also obsessed with
numbers; he spends his time writing strings of numbers in countless
notebooks. No matter how much Martin tries to get his son to communicate
with him, he fails. Finally, Jake is taken from Martin by the state
after Clea Hopkins (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), a social worker, determines that
Jakeís needs cannot be met by a single father. It is shortly after this
that Martin meets Arthur Teller (Danny Glover), a college professor with
an expertise in gifted children. It is after meeting Arthur that it
becomes clear that Jakeís propensity to obsessively write strings of
numbers is not a disability, but a gift. Jake has the ability to
communicate the interconnectivity of the universe; he can observe
patterns in life hidden to the rest of us, and it is when he writes
strings of numbers that he is trying to communicate those observations
to others. Thus, Martin and Jake become a ragtag team, capable of
knowing events before they happen.

the dream. She just got her dream job and apartment; the only thing
standing in her way is moving to New York City. At least thatís what she
thinks. Once she arrives in New York her dreams come to a crashing halt
when she realizes that it was all a scam. Left jobless, homeless, and in
debt, June has no choice but to take a job at a coffee shop and move in
with Chloe (Krysten Ritter). Chloe has questionable morals and is a
serious troublemaker, something Midwesterner June is not necessarily
accustomed to. After testing each other, June and Chloe eventually
establish a mutual respect for one another. Far from expected, June
finds herself in a life filled with eccentric friends and a roommate
that keeps her on her toes.
