This is the list of my must-watch shows coming up in the Fall 2014 season. Set up your calendars.
1- How to Get Away With Murder
This show looks like it will be intense. Professor Annalise Keating gets trapped with four law students from her class “How to Get Away With Murder,” but what they don’t know is that they will have to apply what they learned to real life. Is this a thriller or what?
Premieres: Thursday, September 25 at 10pm/9c on ABC
2- Jane the Virgin
This show is an adaptation of a Venezuelan telenovela called “Juana La Virgen.” This is the deal with this show. Jane gets accidentally artificially inseminated with a specimen meant for a patient in the next-door room. She was just there for a routine check-up. Imagine this happening to you? Yikes!
Premieres: Monday, October 13 at 9pm/8c on CW
3- Madam Secretary
Elizabeth McCord returns to the political scene after years away from the CIA. This show sounds like “Scandal” but in a whole new level.
Premieres: Sunday, September 21 at 8pm/7c on CBS
4- The Mysteries of Laura
Debra Messing (“Will & Grace” and “Smash”) stars as Laura Diamond, who is a NYPD homicide detective who balances her job with a crazy family life that includes two twin boys and her soon-to-be ex-husband. I am happy to Debra back to the small screen.
Premieres: Wednesday, September 24 at 8pm/7c on NBC
This show is based on the life of an IT genius who recruits other geniuses to help solve complex problems of the world. Basically, a bunch of nerds and a waitress (Katharine McPhee) who helps them outside of their laboratory. Love it!
Premieres: Monday, September 22 at 9pm/8c on CBS
This is a psychological thriller about detectives in the LAPD’s Threat Assessment Unit. They try to solve all kinds of stalking cases. The targets are mostly women. Scary!
Premieres: Wednesday, October 1 at 10pm/9c on CBS
7- State of Affairs
This show is getting bad press and it hasn’t even started. I want to watch it because I like Katherine Heigl. Aside from the negative press around her, I like her. Go figure.
Now the show is about a top CIA analyst – Heigl as Charleston Tucker – who assembles the President’s Daily Briefing. She has a complex personal life and a demanding profession. Sounds pretty much like me.
Premieres: Monday, November 17 at 10pm/9c on NBC
