FOX has renewed two of its rookie dramas: Lucifer and Rosewood.
‘We knew we had something special with LUCIFER, from the engaging performances of Tom, Lauren and the rest of the charismatic cast, to Len Wiseman’s visually stunning look of the show and the amazing storytelling savvy of the Bruckheimer team,’ said David Madden, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.
‘With ROSEWOOD, creator Todd Harthan has put a fresh, playful spin on the procedural format, infusing it with wit and warmth, while Morris, Jaina and the show’s gifted supporting cast have turned in fantastic performances. We look forward to two stand-out sophomore seasons from both series.’
For details on next week’s episodes of both show’s follow the jump.
FOX’s Rosewood (Wednesday, 8/7) is a procedural teaming a ‘private pathologist’ with a Miami detective. Do they solve crimes? Damn Skippy!
Does the show work? Well, the pilot suggests possibilities – mostly variations on buddy/cop shows where the partners start off not getting along but having chemistry – but despite the potential for clichés, the chemistry (there’s that word again) between Morris Chestnut (as Dr. Beaumont Rosewood Jr.) and Jaina Lee Ortiz (as Detective Karissa Villa) may – I repeat, may – make up for its missteps while the show finds its rhythm.
