The Exorcist -- Based on 1973 movie -- Coming to FOX Fall 2016

http://www.ew.com/article/2016/05/10...making-history

Excerpt from EW



by Natalie Abrams

A modern reinvention inspired by William Blatty’s original 1971 book, The Exorcist is a propulsive, serialized psychological thriller following two very different men tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession, and confronting the face of true evil. Jeremy Slater will write and executive-produce with James Robinson, Rolin Jones, David Robinson, Barbara Wall, and Rupert Wyatt. Geena Davis, Brianne Howey, Hannah Kasulka, Kurt Egyiawan, Alfonso Herrera, Ben Daniels and Alan Ruck will star.

It can't be any worse than A&E's recent Omen series called Damien.

1st trailer for The Exorcist




It's airing on Fridays next season after Hell's Kitchen. I wonder if that was intentional scheduling.

I am not sure how well it will be on Fox. If it was on cable like FX or HBO or some channel like that, I think it would be great.. Like American Horror Story.

I wonder if FOX will burn off the remaining episodes after they cancel it three in or just pull it completely?

I hate judging things by how the trailer goes but that didn't look particularly impressive. There is no A-list tv talent and it looks like just another cheap genre show on Fox.

Geena Davis doesn't qualify as A-list TV talent?

She's won an Academy Award and won best actress in a TV series for the Golden Globes.

A best supporting actress Oscar from nearly three decades ago doesn't qualify as a-list in 2016. Your mileage may vary.

Odd material to make as a show. Even if it had potential, I don't know if it'd have legs. Anyway, this doesn't look very good.
