This week the 5 broadcast TV networks announced their Fall TV lineups and a lot of the new shows seemed familiar. That’s because they are either spinoffs of a show that is on TV, a remake loosely based on a movie, TV show and/or comic book, a reboot and/or a revival. There’s 24: Legacy, The Blacklist: Redemption, Chicago Justice, The Exorcist, Frequency, Lethal Weapon, MacGuyver, Prison Break, Riverdale, Taken, Time After Time and Training Day.
You might think what happened to originality? Funny or Die thought the same thing and came up with this brilliant video. Proving everything old in Hollywood is new again on TV.
