Watch Funny or Die Skewer Broadcast TV's "New" Series
Funny or Die isn't missing a beat following the broadcast networks upfronts in New York.
A day after the glitzy star-studded presentations to Madison Avenue ad buyers, Funny or Die has released "Network TV's All New 2016 Lineup" — a timely skewering of the biggest trends at the broadcast networks this season.
From capping on spinoffs (NBC's The Blacklist: Redemption) and reboots (Fox's 24: Legacy) to what's old being new again (Kevin James in a CBS sitcom, Kevin Can Wait) and film remakes (Fox's The Exorcist, Lethal Weapon, NBC's Taken), Funny or Die doesn't miss a trend with quips like:
"Shows you remember, but without the cast you like!"
"Like Kevin James as a blue-collar delivery man in King of Queens, you'll love him as a blue-collar cop in King of Cops — or Kevin Can Wait!"
"Yes, this fall network TV has it all — like the hot new shows MacGyver. Miss Prison Break? We're banking on it! More of a film buff? We have original, inferior takes on The Exorcist, Taken and Lethal Weapon."
