Me, Myself & I (CBS, September 25)
Talk about turning the TV show on its head. Me, Myself & I stars Bobby Moynihan in a comedy about the defining moments in one man's life over three distinct periods - as a 14-year-old in 1991, at age 40 in the present day and at age 65 in 2042. During these pivotal periods of yesterday, today and tomorrow, Alex always finds a way to move forward with determination and humor, knowing his life story isn't defined by the bad things that happen to him, but instead by how he chooses to deal with them.
The Brave (NBC, September 25)
While D.I.A. Deputy Director Patricia Campbell (Anne Heche) and her team of analysts wield the world's most advanced surveillance technology from Washington, D.C., Adam Dalton (Mike Dalton) and his heroic Special Ops squad of highly trained undercover specialists use their unbreakable bond and commitment to freedom to save lives of innocent people and execute missions in some of the most dangerous places in the world. Anne Heche seems like the perfect fit for a TV show of this sort. The characters she has embodied have always seemed a cut above in the intelligence department. Add to this that she hasn't been seen in too many high profile things recently and that makes the The Brave even more special. Undercover procedurals, if done right, always make for great TV. The story lines are immediate and with much of The Brave seemingly culled from today's headlines, that makes this whole endeavor that much more intriguing.
The Mayor (ABC, October 2017)
In what sounds like a present day take on Warren Beatty's Bulworth and Peter Seller's Being There, The Mayor just might be the breakout show of the 2017 Fall TV season. Young rapper Courtney Rose (Brandon Micheal Hall) needs his big break. For years, he's toiled away in a small inner-city apartment, making music in his junk-filled bedroom closet. Tired of waiting for opportunity, Courtney cooks up the publicity stunt of the century: Running for mayor of his hometown in California to generate buzz for his music career. Unfortunately for Courtney, his master plan goes wildly awry, ending in the most terrifying of outcomes: An election victory.
