The CW has four new shows ready to hit the small screen this September/October 2007. They are spread out over the week, each on a separate day. So, without further ado, here are some video previews of the new Fall 2007 shows on The CW.
Aliens in America
Aliens in America looks like it might be really funny, in a Malcolm in the Middle kind of way. It also looks like a good companion piece to Everybody Hates Chris. They have gone through some recasting, Scott Patterson (Gilmore Girls) has taken over the role of the father on the show. Will probably try to watch the first couple of episodes, but the first hour of primetime on Mondays is a crowded place. Premieres October 1st.
Gossip Girl is based on the 1: A Novel (Gossip Girl Series)">popular series of novels of the same name. The guy who created The O.C., Josh Schwartz, is bringing it to the small screen. Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars) narrates the series. I am not sure what to think about this one. On the surface it is another in a long line of shows with 20-somethings playing teenage high school students. This time set amongst the New York elite. We shall see if they bring anything new to the genre. Premieres September 19th.
Life is Wild
This is an American redo of a British show called Wild at Heart. It is taking over the family show slot that 7th Heaven finally vacated after last season, but it has had a lot of casting changes since the initial pilot was shot. Also, of all The CW’s new shows, this is the one you hear the least about. The British version didn’t interest the TVaholic when it aired on BBC America and this one has done little to change that. Premieres October 7th.
Reaper is the wacky show about a guy that learns his parents sold his soul to the devil, as of his 21st birthday. Now that day has come and so has the evil one to collect on his debt. This could be really good or really bad. Kevin Smith (Clerks, Mallrats) directs the premiere episode, which means it has a chance of being really good. But, what happens when he is not around for the second and subsequent episodes? Will they continue to be good fun? Premieres September 25th.
