The Challenger Disaster

Low Winter Sun1

Twice a year, the Television Critics Association descends on Hollywood (or, as was the case recently, Hollywood-adjacent Pasadena) for their “Press Tours,” weeks-long presentations that allow the various networks to unveil their upcoming slates (including returning and new series) to various entertainment reporters for their informational edification. It all sounds a bit like summer camp crossed with Comic-Con pumped up with a lot of foodstuffs and swag up the wazoo. It also sounds deeply exhausting, and this summer’s Press Tour (affectionately just called the “TCAs,” a confusing moniker if we’ve ever heard one) is only halfway complete. Networks that have rolled out their slates to the TCA attendees so far include NBC, Reelz, National Geographic, OWN, and a whole mess of other cable outlets. Upcoming panels include CBS, The CW, Showtime, Hulu, Fox, FX, Disney, and PBS, and we’ll be sure to cover their exciting shows once they’re announced (assuming, of course, that they’ll be much to get pumped over from those networks, but considering that PBS gets two whole days, our expectations are high). With so many of the traditional networks next up on deck, most of the newly announced programs we’re most interested in seeing aren’t hour-long dramas or half-hour sitcoms or similar, they’re one-off specials, miniseries, and made-for-TV movies. Is this the future of television? Sure!
