Pop Upfront 2017 Includes Acquiring The Goldbergs; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of April 17, 2017)

Pop

Diving deeper into scripted television, Pop announced its 2017-2018 slate, driven by a roster of premium series and marquee talent. The network's programming line-up includes seven new and returning series; a line-up of cultural television touchstones, including the greatest medical drama of all time; and nine new projects in development with industry-leading producers and stars. Pop's schedule features over 400 hours of original programming in addition to a curated line-up of shows that emotionally resonate with the network's Modern Grown-up(TM) audience. The slate includes, Hot Date is a half-hour scripted comedy created in partnership with digital powerhouse CollegeHumor and its studio, Big Breakfast. The television series heads into production this summer and will premiere in fall 2017. Clique: On the heels of its recent Buyer's Coup de Coeur Award at MIPTV's 2017 MIPDrama Screenings, Clique is a primetime drama series from the creative team behind the cult smash hit Skins. Then, Swedish Dicks, Private Investigators stars Peter Stormare, Johan Glans and features Keanu Reeves in a single-camera comedy from Lionsgate and Viaplay about an aging ex-stuntman stuck in the past and an overly optimistic Swedish DJ stuck in the digital world.

Returning are: Schitt's Creek, Nightcap, Big Brother After Dark and Wolf Creek. Recently launched series Hollywood Darlings and Return of the Mac's fate are still too early to call. Pop has also acquired ER for its #STILLAWESOME block. That is Pop's daytime line-up of cultural programming from the '80s and '90s that reconnects viewers with the good times in life. #STILLAWESOME on Pop includes That '70s Show, Beverly Hills, 90210, Baywatch, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Dawson's Creek. And Pop has also acquired the cable rerun rights to ABC's The Goldbergs beginning this fall. More to come, but The Goldbergs is also heading to broadcast syndication this fall, as we mentioned. And finally, Pop announced in-development series, but those are all for consideration still, so we won't mention those yet.
