MAKING HISTORY Preview: Trying to Change the Past

making history

Dan Chambers is a bit of a loser. But when this facilities manager at a small Massachusetts college travels back to the past, he’s actually kind of cool. MAKING HISTORY takes viewers back to the 1700s, where Dan spends time with his girlfriend, Deborah Revere, the daughter of the infamous Paul Revere. Unfortunately, Dan’s actions in the past are directly responsible for preventing the start of the American Revolution.

Once Dan realizes what he’s done, he recruits history professor Chris to help him fix it. The pair travel back to the past together (where they meet some of the Founding Fathers) and try to set things right. Once it appears that they managed to get the American Revolution on track, the pair team up with Deborah to right a few other historical wrongs.

The cast includes Adam Pally as Dan, Leighton Meester as Deborah and Yassir Lester as Chris. Phil Lord (THE LAST MAN ON EARTH and THE LEGO MOVIE), Chris Miller, Julius “Goldy” Sharpe and Seth Cohen serve as executive producers.

MAKING HISTORY will premiere on Sunday, March 5 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.

PRISON BREAK Preview: Coming Back to Life

“The dead talk…if you listen.” So says Michael Schofield. And he’s certainly someone who should know, because this is a man who has cheated death several times on PRISON BREAK. Back when the series first ended everyone thought Michael was dead, having sacrificed himself so that Sara and his unborn child could live. But when Fox and the producers decided to do a revival series, having one half of the show’s central duo being dead wouldn’t have worked, so Michael Schofield is very much alive now.

How? That’s one of the questions that will presumably be answered when the show returns for a limited run this spring. But until then we’ve got a new preview to tide you over. When PRISON BREAK returns, Lincoln gets word that his brother may not be dead, courtesy of T-Bag. Traveling to Yemen along with C-Note, Linc learns that his brother is very much alive….and trapped in another prison (this is *PRISON* BREAK, after all). Michael seems determined not only to escape the prison….and the country, which is being thrown into a civil war.

PRISON BREAK returns on Tuesday, April 4 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Fox. Watch the new preview below and browse through photos from the mini-series above.

APB Preview: Going High-Tech to Solve Crime

apb

When we first meet billionaire engineer Gideon Reeves in the series premiere of APB, he’s just witnessed the death of his best friend in a botched attempted robbery. But Gideon isn’t one to take a problem lying down, so he uses his own money to take over the 13th District of the Chicago Police Department and sets out to make it a modern crime-fighting unit.

Using cutting-edge technology and a new app for people to report crimes, Gideon manages to ruffle the feathers of a lot of people. So he recruits allies — including Officer Theresa Murphy (a street-smart cop who is willing to embrace Reeves’ technology) and Ada Hamilton (Reeves’ gifted tech officer) — to help him convince others that his way of fighting crime is the future of the police force.

The cast includes Justin Kirk as Gideon Reeves, Natalie Martinez as Theresa Murphy, Ernie Hudson as Sgt. Ned Conrad, Taylor Handley as Officer Nicholas Brandt, Caitlin Stasey as Ada Hamilton, Tamberla Perry as Officer Tasha Goss and Eric Winter as Scott Murphy. Len Wiseman (LUCIFER), Matt Nix (BURN NOTICE), Dennis Kim, Todd Hoffman and Robert Friedman serve as executive producers.

APB premieres February 6 at 9/8c on Fox.

24: LEGACY Preview: New Day, New Hero

24

24 is continuing without Jack Bauer when Fox premieres 24: LEGACY this winter. The series centers around Sergeant Eric Carter, the leader of a squad of U.S. Army Rangers who killed notorious terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid in Yemen six months before the start of the show.

After the death of Bin-Khalid his followers declared war against Carter and his squad, which forced them all into federal witness protection. When Carter learns that their covers have been blown, he’s on a mission to save everyone.

To stop more attacks, Carter seeks out Rebecca Ingram, a brilliant intelligence officer who helped lead the raid. She’s since stepped down from her post as National Director of CTU in order to support her husband’s, Senator John Donovan, run for President.

24: LEGACY will premiere after the Super Bowl on Fox.

BONES Teasers: Artificial Intelligence and Surprise Birthday Parties

Brennan is celebrating her birthday in this week’s BONES! The foremost forensic anthropologist is coming up on a milestone — her 40th birthday — while trying to solve a case involving artificial intelligence. Here are a few teasers about what to expect in this week’s episode.

Zack’s Shadow Remains. Zack’s declaration that he wasn’t guilty of murder is still hanging over Brennan’s head and when we begin this week’s BONES she’s re-examining the Lobbyist’s murder to figure out if she was wrong about Zack being the killer. It soon becomes clear that the show isn’t dropping the Zack storyline any time soon.

Surprise! Meanwhile, Brennan is also planning her own 40th surprise party, which Booth finds odd — after all, you’re not supposed to plan yourself a *surprise* party. Her father, Max, also stops by for the party and it looks like he’s hiding a secret. But how that will play out in the final season is something we’ll have to wait and see.

Raining On Their Parade. Daisy returns this week and asks Brennan to act as her reference for a very prestigious job. But Brennan throws some cold water on her chances, telling Daisy that she shouldn’t get her hopes up for the senior position since she’s so young. Daisy isn’t the only one insulted by Brennan — when Angel wins a MacArthur Fellowship (ie. a “Genius Grant”) award, Brennan is skeptical that Angela won such a prize before she did. Is Brennan suffering from a little bit of envy?

AI. The case of the week involves the death of a man who created artificial intelligence bots to help autistic children. His co-workers quickly point to a group who think that the robo-pocalypse is coming and that AI will enslave the human race. Apparently the victim — as much of a genius that he was — also loved to troll and bait those members, who think that the government will weaponize these bots.

Don’t miss an all new episode of BONES tonight (January 10) on Fox at the special time of 9:30 p.m. after President Obama’s farewell address.

BEYOND Sneak Peek: Trying to Remember

beyond

Holden starts becoming desperate to remember his life during his coma in this week’s BEYOND.

Holden continues to try to fit back into his life this week, but before he does that he approaches Willa about helping him to remember this other life she says they lived together. Unfortunately, he doesn’t seem eager to resort to the methods she says will be necessary to return his memories..at least until he starts to realize his powers are growing increasingly out of control and the only way to reign them in is to remember the last 12 years. That’s when he goes back to Willa and agrees to try things her way. Expect to learn a lot more about where Holden’s abilities come from in this week’s episode as well as actually get a glimpse at where he’s been.

Meanwhile, Yellow Jacket makes a big move in his quest to get to Holden, but will it backfire on him?

Don’t miss an all new episode of BEYOND tonight (January 9) at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Freeform.

BONES: Booth and the Squints Search for Brennan in the Season 12 Premiere

The final season of BONES picks up exactly where last season’s finale left off: Brennan has been captured by her former colleague Zack, insinuating that he has once again been found out as a killer. Brennan immediately demands that Zack let her go, but he insists that he’s the boss now and he has things he needs to tell her.

Here are a few teasers about what’s to come in the season 12 premiere:

A Desperate Search. Cam is the one who realizes that Brennan and her captor could still be in the Jeffersonian, while Hodgins and Wendell try to follow her trail using Hodgins’ equipment. In one of the photos above you can see Brennan holding out her hands to stop Booth, so it’s clear that Booth finds Zack. But when he does you won’t believe what Zack claims. All it not what it seems. And what Zack tells Brennan makes her doubt everything she believes even though everyone else is convinced of Zack’s culpability.

The Interrogation. Aubrey is the one who interrogates Zack after his arrest and big chunks of Zack’s recent backstory is filled in. Surprisingly, his connection to the Jeffersonian is not as severed as we had suspected and Zack’s relationship with Booth is also made clear. Both revelations shock the team but Booth is eventually forced to examine his own belief with regards to Zack’s guilt.

Hodgins’ Pain. The good doctor continues to have spasms in his legs and Angela makes a discovery about Hodgins’ treatment that leads to a shocking revelation for him. As a result he confronts his old co-worker and his chance at mobility again.

Karen’s Return. The FBI agent returns in time to help with the current case and she becomes convinced that the killer has Dissociative Identity Disorder. She also has a novel plan to expose the killer. Later, the discovery of another victim helps break the case wide open.

By the end of the episode Zack’s present and past criminal deeds will have been addressed and it’s clear that this long-gone character has not been forgotten as the show enters its final season.

Don’t miss the season premiere of BONES on Tuesday, January 3 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.

BROOKLYN NINE-NINE: The Squad Embarks on a Manhunt in the Fall Finale

b99

A prison van carrying 9 convicts overturns during an accident in the fall finale of BROOKLYN NINE-NINE, releasing all of the prisoners on New York City. Captain Holt tells the squad about the escapees and Jake is thrilled about the impending manhunt, going so far as to recite a monologue from THE FUGITIVE. Jake soon issues Amy a challenge: whoever’s team catches the least escapees will have to give up their apartment when they move in together. Terry wants Jake to continue having his own space, so he teams up with him to win. Boyle, meanwhile, wants Jake to move into Amy’s apartment (which is two blocks away from his) so he teams up with her.

Back at the squad house, Holt, Gina and Rosa are investigating whether the crash was an accident or a deliberate escape. Soon the competition is tied and it’s a race to the last fugitive, which forces Jake to turn to a surprising ally (and familiar face): Doug Judy. Holt isn’t happy about one of his cops working with with a known criminal, but Jake believes he’s the only man who can lead them to the last escapee.

While Jake and Doug Judy team up to catch the last escapee, Charles tells the rest of the squad how hurt he is to be excluded from their text chain. Gina and Amy both hate how often he texts so they take it upon themselves to teach him texting etiquette. All of this leads to one heck of a cliffhanger to carry us through to the summer return of the show.

The one-hour fall finale of BROOKLYN NINE-NINE airs on a special night, Sunday, January 1, beginning at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
