Cattrall tops new-look Tuesday for Fox

Kim Cattrall stars in Filthy Rich

US broadcast network Fox’s fall 2020 slate includes a gothic drama starring Kim Cattrall (Sex & the City) and the fourth season of hit format The Masked Singer.

From writer and director Tate Taylor, Filthy Rich is described as “a southern gothic family soap in which wealth, power and religion collide.”

When the patriarch of a mega-rich Southern family, famed for creating a successful Christian television network, dies in a plane crash, his wife (Cattrall) and family are stunned to learn he fathered three illegitimate children. Cattrall also serves as a producer on the series.

A second original to premiere on Fox this fall is Next, a thriller about the emergence of a deadly, rogue artificial intelligence that examines how technology is invading our lives. John Slattery (Mad Men) stars as a Silicon Valley pioneer who discovers that one of his own creations might cause a global catastrophe.

Next is created and exec produced by Manny Coto, with Charlie Gogolak also exec producing. John Requa and Glenn Ficarra exec produce and direct.

Joining the show in a new-look Monday night primetime line-up is police drama LA’s Finest, starring Jessica Alba. The series is an offshoot of the Bad Boys film franchise and is produced by Sony Pictures Television.

Returning with new episodes this fall are the fourth season of mystery singing format The Masked Singer and animated comedies The Simpsons, Bless the Harts, Bob’s Burgers and Family Guy, as well as the eighth season of kids’ cooking competition series MasterChef Junior.

In addition, Cosmos: Possible Worlds, the latest instalment of science docuseries franchise Cosmos, will air on Fox following its premiere on National Geographic this spring. It forms a new-look Tuesday night at 20.00 with Filthy Rich following at 21.00.

Meanwhile, midseason original programming includes procedural dramas 9-1-1 and 9-1-1: Lone Star, comedy Call Me Kat and animated comedies The Great North and Housebroken. Also part of the 2020/21 slate are new seasons of animated comedy Duncanville and Gordon Ramsay-fronted cooking show Hell’s Kitchen.

The network said its midseason schedule and further renewals would be revealed at a later date.

“The effects of this global health crisis leave no business unaffected. As a media company that prides itself on an entrepreneurial spirit and the focus that comes with doing fewer things better, we mobilised, swiftly creating an entirely new, original programming line-up for the fall to share with our partners this upfront,” said Charlie Collier, CEO of Fox Entertainment.
