Five Must-Watch New Television Shows Of The Fall 2012 Season
'Nashville,' 'Last Resort,' 'Revolution,' 'Arrow' and 'Vegas' -- Composed by AccessHollywood.com
The new television season is fast approaching and just in time Access Hollywood has named our Five Must-Watch new television shows of the fall.
Here's our picks, and the reasons you should tune in...
Premieres: October 10 at 10/9c on ABC
What's It All About? Country music will be king this fall on ABC when the network's new drama "Nashville" makes its big impression. The primetime soap-tinged series stars Connie Britton, fresh off her Emmy nomination for "American Horror Story," as a fading country star (Rayna Jaymes) being strong-armed into touring with a hot new chart sensation (Juliette Barnes), played to catty perfection by Hayden Panettiere. Both ladies do their own singing in the show, with a little help from T-Bone Burnett, who's "Nashville's" executive music producer.
But That's Not All: More pipes come courtesy of newcomers -- the luminous Clare Bowen and charming Sam Palladio. Also, Eric Close (who plays Connie's husband, Teddy Conrad) has a hearty storyline timed perfectly to go with election season.
Premieres: September 27 at 8/7c on ABC
What's It All About? Full of high octane thrills, the military-themed drama "Last Resort," starring Andre Braugher (Captain Marcus Chaplin) and Scott Speedman (XO Sam Kendal), is a sure bet. In the vein of "Crimson Tide," the crew of a U.S. Navy submarine is abandoned by their own country and declared an enemy of the state when the Capt. defies a direct order to launch a nuclear attack. Taking refuge on a tropical island, there will be plenty to deal with from a variety of enemies both afar and in close proximity.
But That's Not All: Autumn Reeser's character, Kylie Sinclair, dives in the drama in Washington, D.C. Meanwhile, over on the island, watch out for a subplot around Australian newcomer Daniel Lissing (as James King) and his group of Navy SEALs just back from a mysterious - and seemingly disastrous -- mission.
Premiere: September 17 at 10/9c on ABC
What's It All About? From J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions and "Supernatural's" Eric Kripke comes this post- apocalyptic set action-packed drama. Taking place 15 years after the power - as in all the power in the world -- has gone out, a militia's kidnapping of her asthmatic younger brother prompts Charlie Mattheson (played by fresh face Tracy Spiridakos) to head out on a search for her elusive uncle Miles ("The Twilight Saga's" Billy Burke).
But That's Not All: "Iron Man 1 & 2" director Jon Favreau (also a co-executive producer on "Revolution") went behind the camera for the pilot, which fans can watch ahead of its network premiere on Hulu. Easy-on-the-eyes J.D. Pardo swings in as the crossbow wielding Nate.
Premieres: October 10 at 8/7c on The CW
