2013-2014 CW SCHELDUE



Every Year all the networks announce what shows have been renewed, which have been cancelled, and the brand new shows that will grace everyone’s television sets in the fall. The CW is no exception. CW has been known for renewing shows that have bad ratings, and with ten slots to fill this fall it was anyone’s guess, what would be renewed and which would be cancelled. For the second year in a row, the CW has moved away from its typical bread and butter – teen dramas set in high school. Instead, they have move toward shows that engages the male audience, and has little to nothing to do with the happenings of teenagers and their sex lives. With 5 new dramas and a couple of new reality shows set to premiere this 2013-2014 season, if you haven’t been a CW fan now is the time give them a chance.

MID-SEASON SERIES

STAR-CROSSED
When Emery was 6 years old, an alien spacecraft crash-landed in her small town.  Whether they came in peace or with more sinister intentions didn’t matter: a fierce battle erupted as humans fought for control over their new rivals, an alien species called the Atrians.  In the midst of the conflict, Roman, a 6-year-old Atrian boy, found his way to a shed behind Emery’s house, where she protected him from harm, bringing him food, comfort – and friendship.  In their brief time together, Emery and Roman forged a deep bond, but the authorities wasted no time tracking Roman down and capturing him in a violent confrontation.  Emery has grown up believing that Roman was killed that day.  Ten years later, the Atrians have been acclimated to life on Earth, but they are interned in a heavily-guarded camp known as the Sector to keep them separate from humans.  Now, for the first time, a group of Atrian teens will enroll in a suburban human high school, with the goal of testing the feasibility of human/alien integration.  The eyes of the nation and the whole world are fixed on this historical social experiment, an endeavor fraught with suspicion and fear.  In the mayhem of the first day, Emery is amazed to learn that Roman was not killed by the authorities and is, in fact, one of the Atrian students.  Their childhood bond is quickly rekindled – in a school and a society that distrusts everything about the Atrians, Emery and Roman have found each other again.  However, their relationship is threatened by the small-mindedness of their respective communities and the political agendas of people in power.  While the world around them rages with anger and prejudice, their bond becomes increasingly strong and increasingly dangerous.  As an epic Romeo and Juliet romance unfolds, a violent encounter between Roman’s father and Emery’s father occurs in the Sector.  Can Roman and Emery’s love – and peace between the species – survive? 

THE 100
Ninety-seven years ago, nuclear Armageddon decimated planet Earth, destroying civilization.  The only survivors were the 400 inhabitants of 12 international space stations that were in orbit at the time.  Three generations have been born in space, the survivors now number 4,000, and resources are running out on their dying “Ark” ? the 12 stations now linked together and repurposed to keep the survivors alive.  Draconian measures including capital punishment and population control are the order of the day, as the leaders of the Ark take ruthless steps to ensure their future, including secretly exiling a group of 100 juvenile prisoners to the Earth’s surface to test whether it’s habitable.  For the first time in nearly a century, humans have returned to planet Earth.  Among the 100 exiles are Clarke, the bright teenage daughter of the Ark’s chief medical officer; Wells, son of the Ark’s Chancellor; the daredevil Finn; and the brother/sister duo Bellamy and Octavia, whose illegal sibling status has always led them to flaunt the rules. Technologically blind to what’s happening on the planet below them, the Ark’s leaders — Clarke’s widowed mother, Abby; the Chancellor, Jaha; and his shadowy second in command, Kane — are faced with difficult decisions about life, death and the continued existence of the human race.  For the 100 young people on Earth, however, the alien planet they’ve never known is a mysterious realm that can be magical one moment and lethal the next.  With the survival of the human race entirely in their hands, THE 100 must find a way to transcend their differences, unite and forge a new path on a wildly changed Earth that’s primitive, intense and teeming with the unknown. 
FAMOUS IN 12
There is a family in the U.S. that has what it takes to become famous — the question is: Can they pull it off in 12 weeks? That’s the challenge in the new unscripted series FAMOUS IN 12, a unique social experiment that tracks the lives of one determined family as they move to the entertainment capital of the world — Los Angeles — and seek fame in a 12-week time frame.  Members of the family will all have unique and varied talents, and they will each get a series of challenges to create a public profile fit for a Kardashian.  The family will be guided by the TMZ machine, which will create a series of opportunities for them.  TMZ and Harvey Levin will help, but it is up to the family to pull it off.  When they succeed at their challenges, they will appear on the TMZ TV show and TMZ.com, which will raise their profile. Family members will exploit all forms of social media to wage a campaign of fame.  In addition to the challenges, the family will circulate day to day … at the gym, restaurants, bars, parties and other places where celebs hang and opportunities call.
NIKITA (FINAL 6 EPISODES)
Season three of this gripping espionage drama saw Nikita (international action star Maggie Q) take over Division, the illegal black-ops program that trained her to kill.  Working alongside her fiancé Michael (Shane West), her protégé Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) and a team of covert operatives, Nikita vowed to capture all rogue Division agents and shut the place down.  But she got more than she bargained for as Division’s corrupting influence began to tear her family apart. Even worse, Nikita’s nemesis, Amanda (Melinda Clarke), set out to destroy her by teaming with the shadowy global organization known as The Group.  Together, they pulled off a shocking assassination that promises to disrupt the balance of world power forever.  And with the blame for the murder falling on Nikita, she is forced to come full circle and Go On the run as a hunted rogue as she attempts to clear her name as well as spare the people she loves.

  “THE TOMORROW PEOPLE” (SERIES PREMIERE WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 9TH 2013)They are the next evolutionary leap of mankind, a generation of humans born with paranormal abilities — the Tomorrow People.  Stephen Jameson stands at the crossroads between the world we know and the shifting world of the future.  Up until a year ago, Stephen was a “normal” teenager — until he began hearing voices and teleporting in his sleep, never knowing where he might wake up.  Now, Stephen’s issues have gone far beyond the usual teenage angst, and he is beginning to question his sanity.  In desperation, Stephen decides to listen to one of the voices in his head, and it leads him to his first encounter with the Tomorrow People — John, Cara and Russell — a genetically advanced race with the abilities of telekinesis, teleportation and telepathic communication.  The Tomorrow People are being hunted down by a paramilitary group of scientists known as Ultra.  Led by Dr. Jedikiah Price, Ultra sees the Tomorrow People as a very real existential threat from a rival species, and the outcast group has been forced to hide out in an abandoned subway station just beneath the surface of the human world. Trading in secrets, Jedikiah offers Stephen the chance for a normal life with his family and best friend, Astrid, if he will help in the struggle to isolate and eradicate the Tomorrow People.  On the other hand, Cara, John and Russell offer Stephen a different type of family and a home where he truly belongs.  Unwilling to turn his back on humanity or the world of the Tomorrow People, Stephen sets out on his own path — a journey that could take him into the shadowy past to uncover the truth about his father’s mysterious disappearance, or into an unknown future with THE TOMORROW PEOPLE
