Shows to Die For in 2012-13

Okay, we don’t want you to die, literally. But somebody who sometimes is right about some things having to do with TV thinks we all might enjoy some of the following:

Fall TV Preview: 15 Shows To Look Out For In The Coming Season – by Oliver Lyttelton

With the summer pretty much winding down in every way except the temperature, our thoughts are starting to turn towards the fall line-up. Over the next week or two as the festival season gears up, we’re going to be casting our eye on what to expect not just from Venice, Telluride and TIFF, but also the rest of the movie season in general.

But of course, movies aren’t all that will be available to watch. With TV going through something of a golden age (and our coverage of the medium growing), we wanted to kick off our fall preview week by looking at some of the most exciting TV shows that are set to debut over the next six months or so. Below you’ll find ten shows that should premiere on the networks and cable channels in the near future. And given the increasing popularity of British shows like “Downton Abbey,” “Luther,” “Sherlock” and “Doctor Who” in the U.S., we’ve also added a bonus five from across the pond. Read on for more, and let us know what you’ll be looking forward to yourselves on the small screen in the near future.

1. “Ray Donovan”

2. “Masters of Sex”

3. “Hannibal”

4. “The Americans”

5. “Mockingbird Lane”

Read it all for 10 more and all the premise, casting, etc. details

Wow, they’re really trying to crank up the excitement, aren’t they? We can hardly wait to see what gets announced, worked over, and trumpeted next.

Yeah, that’s sarcasm. We’re too immature here for irony.

Deal with it.
