Depending on your proclivities, there is a series that is certain to fit your television watching desires. Whether you prefer comedy, drama, thrillers, or sci-fi, the lineup for 2016-2017 has something for everyone. Here is a sneak peek at some of the most anticipated primetime series that are airing in the upcoming season.

No matter what shows suck you in, thanks to advances in technology, you never have to miss one second of any of your favorite shows. With the use of a DVR, commonly used with local DIRECTV packages, you can record all your favorite shows for watching at a later time. Also, many television providers now also offer on demand options which allow for viewers to watch all their favorite shows at their own leisure.

Disney Channel’s Tangled Television Series

Perfect for the whole family is the Tangled series, which is based on the popular Disney movie by the same name. Many of the original voice actors from the original Disney movie return to lend their voices to the characters we all grew to know and love. Mandy Moore will voice Rapunzel while Zachary Levi rejoins the cast as Flynn Rider, also known as Eugene. Other favorite characters making an appearance in this made-for-tv adaptation include Rapunzel’s feisty chameleon Pascal and Flynn’s loyal steed Maximus. Tangled joins the Disney channel line-up beginning 2017. Check your local listings for details.

Lethal Weapon on Fox

For those who enjoy a good comedy, there is another television adaptation of a popular movie classic coming to Fox Network. This series is one part comedy and one part action and is certain to garner a following among fans of the original Lethal Weapon movie series which starred Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. In the Fox television series, Damon Wayans takes the role of Roger Murtaugh alongside Clayne Crawford who plays Martin Riggs. Lethal Weapon is slated to air right before the popular drama Empire on Fox.

Notorious on ABC

This television drama stars Piper Perabo as Wendy Walker, a cable news producer and her interactions with Mark Geragos, who is played by Daniel Sunjata. Geragos is a well established criminal defense attorney and Notorious lends insight to the intricacies of the interplay between the legal world and the news media.

AMC’s Better Call Saul

The award-winning dramedy follows the life of Jimmy McGill, before he was known as Saul Goodman, attorney to Walter White in the popular tv series Breaking Bad. In Better Call Saul, viewers get a glimpse of the life of Saul Goodman, operating as Jimmy McGill, a struggling criminal defense attorney in New Mexico. Better Call Saul paints the picture of the colored past of Jimmy McGill and his path to becoming a morally flexible lawyer operating a legal practice at a strip mall in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Marvel’s The Inhumans Series Heads To IMAX Theaters & ABC

tumblr_ni50g4txu31rf5t8co1_1280

IMAX Corp., Marvel Television and Disney|ABC Television Group today announced an innovative agreement to exclusively premiere a new Marvel’s The Inhumans series in IMAX commercial theaters, marking the first time a live-action television series has debuted in this manner.

Under the agreement, a version of the first two episodes The Inhumans series – produced in conjunction with ABC Studios and filmed entirely with IMAX digital cameras – will run worldwide exclusively in IMAX for two weeks at the beginning of September 2017. ABC plans to then premiere the weekly series in fall, with additional exclusive content that can only be seen on the network.

The Inhumans, a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers, were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965. Since that time, they have grown in prominence and become some of the most popular and iconic characters in the Marvel Universe. Marvel’s The Inhumans series will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.

ABC, IMAX and Marvel Television also intend to work together to create a joint marketing and promotion plan for the series across their proprietary media platforms – which would be the first such cross-platform marketing launch of a television series. Today’s agreement also marks IMAX’s first time as a financing participant in a TV pilot and series.

“This unprecedented alliance represents a bold, innovative approach to launching great TV content for a worldwide audience,” said Ben Sherwood, co-chairman, Disney Media Networks and president, Disney|ABC Television Group. “It highlights Disney|ABC’s unrelenting commitment to finding new and creative ways to showcasing our very best programming and increasing global engagement and reach.”

“This first-of-its-kind multi-platform production, distribution and marketing agreement brings together Marvel Television’s unique brand of entertainment, ABC’s unparalleled audience and IMAX’s brand and global fanboy demographic,” said IMAX CEO, Rich Gelfond. “It also takes our decades-long relationship with The Walt Disney Company to a whole new level, jointly breaking new ground in the industry. We are confident our exhibition partners will be excited to work with us on this innovative launch of a series across the IMAX network.”

“We’re happy to see this unique deal come together, working with our partners,” said Dan Buckley, President, Marvel Television, Publishing & Brand. “In an ever-changing world of distribution and consumption, it’s very exciting to be part of a groundbreaking initiative that takes us to the forefront of this evolution.”

Brent’s back! Millions of members around the globe will have the chance to turn the noise UP when the eagerly-awaited Netflix original film David Brent: Life on the Road premieres on February 10, 2017 worldwide, excluding the U.K., Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

Directed, written and produced by award-winning, comedic genius Gervais, David Brent: Life on the Road sees a documentary crew catching up with the idiosyncratic David Brent from the BBC2’s mockumentary The Office. The most successful British comedy of all time, The Office and its fearless and fumbling leader Brent garnered fans around the globe and spawned seven remakes across four continents.

When audiences were first introduced to Brent, the self-proclaimed “Friend first, boss second. Probably an entertainer third” dreamed of becoming a rock superstar. Twelve years on, Brent is now a traveling salesman chasing the dream with his band, ‘Foregone Conclusion’. Assembling a group of session musicians who are just in it for the money, and a talented rapper Dom (Ben Bailey Smith) in an attempt to gain street cred, Brent cashes in his pension and takes unpaid leave in pursuit of his dream and one last shotat fame and fortune. Gervais is uproarious reprising his role as the unwittingly offensive, but often endearing character.

David Brent: Life on the Road features original music and lyrics by Gervais, and musical arrangement by Andy Burrows of Razorlight and We Are Scientists fame.
