The new dramas joining the schedule this fall are THE EXORCIST and LETHAL WEAPON. Widely regarded as the greatest horror movie ever made, Academy Award-nominated "The Exorcist" terrified audiences around the world.

Featuring THE VOICE of Jason Sudeikis (THE LAST MAN ON EARTH, "Horrible Bosses," "We're the Millers"), SON OF ZORN follows an animated warrior from a faraway island in the Pacific Ocean, who returns to Orange County, CA, to win back his live-action ex-wife (Cheryl Hines, "Curb Your Enthusiasm")and teenage son (Johnny Pemberton, "21 Jump Street").

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, a brand-new reimagining of the cult-classic midnight movie 40 years in the making, is set to air October 2016. Sweethearts JANET (Victoria Justice, "Victorious") and BRAD (Ryan McCartan, "Liv & Maddie," "Heathers the Musical") stumble upon flirtatious mad scientist DR. FRANK-N-FURTER's (Emmy Award-nominated actress Laverne Cox, "Orange is the New Black") bizarre abode during his annual Transylvanian Science convention. The two-hour event also features Emmy Award nominee Tim Curry, the original Frank-N-Furter.

In 2017, additional new series joining the schedule include dramas 24: LEGACY, STAR, PITCH and APB; event series PRISON BREAK and SHOTS FIRED; comedies THE MICK and MAKING HISTORY; and reality competitions KICKING & SCREAMING and MY KITCHEN RULES.
