neXT (FOX) -- S: John Slattery -- From the Producer of 24 -- Coming in 2020



From creator and executive producer Manny Coto (“24”) and executive producers and directors John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (“This Is Us”), neXt is a propulsive, fact-based thriller about the emergence of a deadly, rogue artificial intelligence that combines pulse-pounding action with a layered examination of how technology is invading our lives and transforming us in ways we don’t yet understand. Starring Emmy Award nominee John Slattery (“Mad Men”) as a Silicon Valley pioneer, who discovers that one of his own creations – a powerful A.I. – might spell global catastrophe, and teams up with a cybercrime agent (Fernanda Andrade, “The First”) to fight a villain unlike anything we’ve ever seen – one whose greatest weapon against us is ourselves. The series also stars Michael Mosley (“Ozark”),Jason Butler Harner (“Ozark”), Eve Harlow (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), Aaron Moten (“Mozart in the Jungle”), Gerardo Celasco (“How to Get Away with Murder”), Elizabeth Cappucino (“Jessica Jones”) and Evan Whitten (THE RESIDENT).

neXT crew member tested positive for coronavirus.

This might be bad.

Production already wrapped last week, but no air date yet.

Postponed to Fall due to pandemic. The season was completely shot.

FOX is worried they may not have enough new content.

Just finished episode 1 - early premiere on Hulu Live on Oct 3.

Itís all right. But itís new content, so Iíll keep watching. Some recognizable character actors.

Iíll admit Iím paranoid about super AI

Deepfake video and audio are already the precursor of the T-1000!

Drones are precursors to Hunter-Killers!

Google is Skynet!

This wasn't so bad for a network pilot in 2020. The premise could become tiresome over an entire season but hopefully the show's concept evolves over time. I plan to give the second episode a shot, which is something I rarely say for network TV these days.

I wasn't sure what to expect, but I quite enjoyed it and added it to the DVR. Hopefully FOX doesn't screw us over and cancel it like they do all too often.

The commercials are giving me a Person of Interest feel.

There are definitely elements taken from POI's latter seasons. However, Next is no POI.

I deleted the 2nd episode from my DVR last week. Didn't feel like watching it, even though I thought the first episode was ok. No second season wasn't much of a surprise.

Well, I guess I called that one. Still, I guess I'll finish out this season, as I'm quite enjoying it so far.
