Deadly games to schedule – Deadline


CBS has revamped its early fall schedule with a mix of acquisitions, scripted series from other areas of society, and unscripted programming as it deals with the continued impact of COVID-19.The broadcast network adds Star Trek: Discovery, One Day at a Time specter Manhunt: Deadly Games as well as a documentary spin-off by FBI on the schedule in September and October.

It comes as CBS hopes to roll out its previously announced schedule of scripted dramas and comedies in November.

The move will mean there will be at least two to three hours of original, or new to CBS, programming on the network in September and October. Despite the global pandemic, it is comparable to last year.

Fall 2020 premiere dates: here’s what happens as production slowly begins to ramp up amid a pandemic

“It’s not a traditional fall season, but we’re prepared with a solid roster of original content as our regular scripted series begin production,” said Kelly Kahl, president of CBS Entertainment. “Based on our current schedule, we hope to start rolling out our previously announced Fall Series as soon as they become available in November.”

Manhunt: Deadly Games, which stars Cameron Britton, Jack Huston and Carla Gugino, will premiere on CBS on Monday, September 21 at 10 p.m. ET. The Lionsgate TV and Spectrum co-production, which follows Discovery Manhunt The drama Unabomber began airing on Spectrum’s On Demand platform in February. It tells the story of the manhunt that followed the deadly terrorist attack at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta.

The acquisition makes sense as Spectrum isn’t available in all parts of the country, so it gives viewers across the country the option to watch it and gives CBS a fully produced series to air pending the return of its originals. Another Spectrum drama series, The best of Los Angeles, landed on Fox’s COVID-proof fall program.

The first season of CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery will air on the network starting Thursday, September 24 at 10 p.m. The first episode of the series created by Alex Kurtzman and Bryan Fuller aired on CBS in September 2017 as a digital pre-race promotion, but this is the first time that a season has been available on linear television in the States. It also precedes the launch of the third season of Sonequa Martin-Green-fronted, which begins airing on CBS All Access on October 15.

This is the second CBS All Access show to air a full season on its sister broadcast network following the first season of The good fight ran on CBS last summer.

Elsewhere, the fourth season of One day at a time will air on CBS with consecutive episodes starting Monday, October 12 at 9 p.m. ET. The fourth season of the Norman Lear show premiered on Pop in March; its cycle was interrupted by the shutdown of production linked to COVID. The revival was saved by the cable network owned by ViacomCBS after it was canceled from Netflix as part of a deal that included a second window to CBS.

On the broadcast network, the available episodes of season 4 of One day at a time will follow rehearsals for CBS’s Monday comedy block.

The halt in production on COVID-19 meant most of his CBS’s unscripted series started airing much later than usual. This means that the network will have original episodes of Big Brother and Love Island to ventilate until the end of October. the Love Island the final will take place on Tuesday 29 September, while Big Brother is scheduled to end on Wednesday October 28.

The 10th season of Infiltrated boss will premiere on Friday, October 2 at 9 p.m., while The best videos #At home, hosted by Cédric the Entertainer, will air Friday, September 25 at 8 p.m. The 32nd season of Fantastic race, hosted by Phil Keoghan, premieres Wednesday, October 14 at 9 p.m.

Finally, the network is launched The declassified FBI, Told by FBI star Alana De La Garza. The show, which comes from the team behind CBS News’ 48 hours, will launch on Tuesday, October 13 at 10 p.m. 60 minutes, which returns on Sunday, September 20; 48 hours: suspicion, which begins Wednesday, September 9 at 10 p.m. and the return of 48 hours Edition of Saturday September 12 at 10 p.m.

The revised schedule comes as CBS drama has started returning to production. Early August, TO CRUSH, produced by Sony Pictures Television and CBS TV Studios, began work on its fourth season after being moved from mid-season to replace Survivor, whose fall installment has been sidelined by the pandemic.

NCIS is expected to resume production on September 9, with NCIS: Los Angeles is expected to return on September 3. Taurus, who films in New York, and Magnum PI, which is filming in Hawaii, was also given the green light to return to filming.
