Lake County News, CA – FOX program relies on drama, animation and unscripted


Long before anyone thinks about a new season of TV programming, the major networks are still pitching their slate for an upcoming season to the national advertising community.

Introducing the new series, Charlie Collier, CEO of FOX Entertainment, claimed that his network entered into unveiling the programs as “the only company, regardless of platform, with advertising at its heart”.

Set in mythical ancient Greece, “Krapopolis” is an animated series centered on a family of flawed humans, gods, and monsters who attempt to rule one of the world’s first cities without killing each other.

Richard Ayoade voices Tyrannis, the benevolent King of Krapopolis, who is trying to make his way in a town aptly named. Tyrannis’ mother, Deliria (Hannah Waddingham), is the goddess of self-destruction and questionable choices. The other family members are a real mess.

Gordon Ramsay, the unstable British chef and restaurateur, finds his “Hell’s Kitchen” cooking contest is still going on on FOX, and at some point the all-new “Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars” contest series will arrive.

Dottie and her beloved husband Albie Roman (country music star Trace Adkins) have created a country music dynasty, and while the Roman name is synonymous with authenticity, the very foundation of their success is a lie.
