An immortal cop, a Terminator and a Jezebel headed to Fox?

May 12, 2007 |  2:46 pm


The pickups just keep coming. Fox doesn't present its new slate to advertisers until Thursday, but it has apparently ordered some of its new series already.

On the drama side, viewers will get "K-Ville," "New Amsterdam," and "The Sarah Connor Chronicles."  Yes, nerds, that last one is the Terminator TV series, which stars Lena Headey (from the movie "300") as Sarah Connor and Thomas Dekker (the cheerleader's best friend from "Heroes") as her son John, who will eventually lead the human resistance.

"K-Ville" is a crime drama about post-Katrina New Orleans, starring Anthony Anderson and Cole Hauser, who play partners in the police department. And "New Amsterdam," which was directed by Lasse Hallstrom, is about an immortal New York police detective who's hundreds of years old because a spell was cast upon him in the 1600's. It happens, people!

Comedy-wise for Fox, "Return of Jezebel James" is the Return of Amy Sherman-Palladino to network television after she left "Gilmore Girls" a year ago. It stars Parker Posey and Lauren Ambrose as sisters. "The Rules for Starting Over" is a dating comedy about a group of friends in Boston brought to you by the Farrelly brothers, Peter and Bobby ("There's Something About Mary").

Also, we hear "'Til Death," the Brad Garrett sitcom, got a second season. Fox won't confirm any of this, by the way. But we're pretty sure it's true.
