New CBS Series 2015/2016 Include Supergirl, Angel From Hell, Limitless and More
CBS has officially announced their new 2015/2016 line up and it looks incredible. Their new lineup includes some of the best new TV shows with 3 new dramas, 2 new comedies and 2 other series starting later this season.
It looks like CBS may have a new set of hits on their hands. We have an overall synopsis of the series and each one makes you want to watch the show even more than the accompanying pictures. While there was much debate about Melissa Benoist portraying the comic book character Kara Zor-El, aka Supergirl, it’s safe to say that the new series is HaveUHeard approved and will most likely be in our fall set of recaps, so look out for them flying your way sooner than later.
Each series is different than the next and feels fresh for the fall season and will most definitely help the network when it comes to ratings. The fact alone that they have picked up a superhero television show and it happens to be the cousin of Superman will boost the network and give viewers a great show. The other shows dabble in the heavy drama aspect, with one taking place in a hospital and the other about a man with cognitive abilities that is asked by the FBI to help solve cases.
The documentary type series name derives from the situation the doctors are put into when the number of incoming patients outweighs the amount of resources the hospital has to help treat them. The new medical drama is set in one of the most fast paced ER’s in the nation, known as Center Stage and stars Marcia Gay Harden as the hospital’s Residency Director Leanne Rorish and glue to the chaos. She is held highly for her successful high risk procedures at the center of the hospitals most critical cases at the hospital. Leanne’s four first year residents include Christa Lorenson (played by Bonnie Sommerville), Malaya Pineda (Melanie Kannokada), Mario Savetti (Benjamin Hollingsworth), and Angus Leighton (Harry M. Ford). Her confidante is Jesse Sallander, portrayed by the sidekick man himself, Luis Guzman. He is characterized as a seen-it-all nurse who supervises the residents.
Along side Leanne and her team, we have Dr. Neal Hudson (Raza Jeffrey) who is an excellent physician that doesn’t always agree with the way Leanne handles and approaches things, and Dr. Rollie Guthrie (William Allen Young), the energetic, and longest-serving attending. At Center Stage, the doctors and nurses work under great pressure and chaotic circumstances where a patient is there to either die, or receive a miracle.
This show is a crime-drama which stars Jake McDorman as Brian Finch, a man who stumbles across the discovery of a mysterious drug, NZT that enhances his brain and gives him cognitive abilities. He is then persuaded by the FBI to use his abilities to help solve the harder cases that they can’t seem to crack on their own. The case squad working besides Brian in New York consists of Special Agent Rebecca Harris (Jennifer Carpenter), described as a hard ass investigator who comes from a dark past and Special Agent Boyle (Hill Harper), a former militant and Rebecca’s right hand man. Their boss is a Special Agent in Charge Nasreen “Naz” Pouran (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio), described only as a canny manipulator of the reins of power. While Brian is working for the FBI, he is hiding a secret of his closet relationship with Senator Edward Mora (Bradley Cooper) who is an avid user of the NZT drug who has other plans for Brian and the power that he is able to use 100% of his brain power while on a daily supply of the drug.
Brian is a force to reckon with against the criminals of the city and the most valuable person on the FBI’s side.
