TV Guide recently reported on the dozens of new pilots (potentially) heading to TV next fall, and we are thrilled to see so many Latin stars in the mix! Here's a breakdown of all the shows by network.
Charlie's Angels (Drama): A remake of the iconic 1970s TV show set in modern-day Miami and starring Ramon Rodriguez (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) as Bosley.
Good Christian B----es! (Drama): In this new dramedy from Sex and the City executive producer Darren Star, a woman (Leslie Bibb) moves back to her Dallas neighborhood after a divorce only to become the center of salacious gossip from the community's churchgoing wives. Marisol Nichols (Vegas Vacation) wil play her best friend who welcomes her back with open arms.
Lost and Found (Comedy): From the producers of Boston Legal, the series stars Diana Maria Riva (The Good Guys) as a narcissistic New York City bartender who has her life turned upside-down when the conservative son she gave up for adoption 18 years ago shows up on her doorstep.
Once Upon a Time (Drama): Lana Parilla, the Spanish actress who starred in the shortlived CBS series Swingtown, returns to TV in this new series starring Big Love's Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White. Parrilla will play the Evil Queen.
Hail Mary (Drama): Enrique Murciano (Without a Trace) stars in this Atlana-set P.I. drama, which tells the story of a suburban single mom (Minnie Driver) who teams up with a street hustler (Brandon T. Jackson) to solve crimes. It reminds us a bit of Weeds!
Ringer (Drama): Buffy's back! Sara Michelle Gellar makes her long-awaited return to television as a troubled young woman on the run, who hides out by living the life of her wealthy twin sister. Nestor Carbonell (Lost) also stars in the series.
Untitled Rob Schneider Project (Comedy): In this new series, which we will definitely be checking out, Rob Schneider (The Hot Chick) plays a lonely bachelor who marries into a large, tight-knit Mexican-American family (including Ugly Betty's Tony Plana, My Name is Earl alum Nadine Velazquez and Lupe Ontiveros).
Alcatraz (Drama): Do you miss Lost? Well, you'll be happy to learn that this new series marks the return of Hugo "Hurley" Reyes (AKA Jorge Garcia) to the small screen! Alcatraz follows a cop (Sarah Jones) and a team of FBI agents who track down a group of missing Alcatraz prisoners and guards who reappear in the present day after disappearing 30 years earlier.
Outnumbered (Comedy): Based on the British comedy, this project centers on a set of parents (Ugly Betty's Ana Ortiz and Cliff Chamberlain) outnumbered by their three kids. Cheech Marin will also star in the series.
Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea (Comedy): Natalie Morales (Parks & Recreation, White Collar) will star in this raunchy new comedy about a group of twentysomethings who live and work together. The series is based on comedienne Chelsea Handler's best-selling book of the same name.
Prime Suspect (Drama): We've been waiting almost two years for the talented Kirk Acevedo (Oz, Fringe) to return to TV and he has just been cast in Prime Suspect, an adaptation of a British miniseries that centers on a tough female detective (Maria Bello) who has to stay tough in a New York precinct dominated by men.
Special Investigations L.A. (Drama): NBC loves Jimmy Smits! Just a few months after his show, Outlaw was cancelled by the Peacock Network, Smits has been tapped to play the Mayor of Los Angeles in this new series by Oscar-winning screenwriter, Stephen Gaghan (Traffic).
