The Beverly Hills gang is back for a totally meta revival and we're already hooked. Rather than bringing back their classic characters, the cast will be starring in a mockumentary-style dramedy running for six episodes. The premise is that the actors reunite for a reboot show, but drama ensues in the series that's "inspired by their real lives and relationships with each other," according to Fox.
Bless the Hearts
Created by former SNL staff writer Emily Spivey, this adult animated comedy follows a down-on-their-luck family living in North Carolina and struggling to get by with the help of friends and good humor. The show features Phil Lord and Chris Miller as executive producers and Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Jillian Bell, and Ike Barinholtz as the primary voice actors, so it's definitely going to be interesting.
Bluff City Law
House of Cards and 24's Caitlin McGee stars in this legal drama as Sydney Strait, a brilliant lawyer who used to work for her famous Memphis-based father's law firm until their strained relationship forced them to part ways.

In this modern cop drama, a fifth-generation lawman somehow ends up taking on the role of Los Angeles County sheriff after the previous sheriff dies, though he is much better acquainted with hunting down bad guys than wrestling with city politics.

Fargo's Allison Tolman stars in this mystery-thriller drama as Jo Evans, a newly divorced police chief on Long Island's Peconic Bay who decides to take in a little girl, Piper, whom she finds at the scene of a mysterious plane crash.

The eponymous young female detective is getting a modern take on The CW, played by newcomer Kennedy McMann.

If you've been missing Black Mirror, then you're going to want to check out this John Slattery-led dystopian series, which revolves around the eponymous NeXt AI (affectionately called Iliza) that may just be interested in taking over the world. Mad Men's Slattery plays Paul LeBlanc, the tech CEO who inadvertently created the Alexa-gone-wrong, and Brazilian-American actress and model Fernanda Andrade costars as Shea, a Homeland cybersecurity agent who works alongside Paul.
Not Just Me
Based on the Australian TV drama Sisters, this series stars Pitch Perfect's Brittany Snow as Julia Bechley, a woman who reunites with two of her half siblings after it is revealed that their shared fertility doctor father had used his own sperm to conceive at least 100 children throughout his career.

The Walking Dead's Tom Payne stars in this dark comedy about a criminal psychologist and forensic profiler named Malcolm Bright, who has a very good reason he's able to get into the mind of serial killers: his father, Dr. Martin Whitly, was a notorious serial killer called "The Surgeon."

In a show inspired by the graphic novels published by Oni Press, How I Met Your Mother actress Cobie Smulders stars as Dex Parios, a savvy army veteran who becomes a private investigator in Portland, OR.

House actor Kal Penn and comedy writer Matt Murray cocreated this comedy series, which revolves around a disgraced former NYC councilman named Garrett Modi, who decides to use his skills to help immigrants in search of the American Dream find their way.
