Fox Gives 'Goodwin Games' a May Premiere
Fox finally has set a premiere date for The Goodwin Games. The midseason comedy bows at 8:30 p.m. Monday, May 20.
The news comes courtesy of star Scott Foley, who tweeted the date Wednesday, also noting that the seven episodes are planned to air in the time slot for its entire run.
From How I Met Your Mother executive producers Carter Bays, Craig Thomas and Chris Harris, Goodwin Games saw its original 13-episode order cut by nearly half in November.
A Monday premiere also implies that Fox will be playing around a bit with its summer schedule. The night typically is home to hourlong dramas and unscripted programming.
After cancelling Ben and Kate in January and cutting its two-hour Tuesday comedy block to just one hour, Fox has made plans to twice sample half-hour comedies on Thursday nights before the end of the season with special outings for Raising Hope, New Girl and The Mindy Project.
Foley, who's filming a guest arc on ABC's Scandal, is joined by Becki Newton and T.J. Miller in Goodwin Games. The comedy follows a trio of estranged siblings forced to compete for their father's inheritance, inadvertently reconnecting in the process.
