CBS' 2013-2014 Line-Up Includes Robin Williams' Comedy and Josh Holloway's Drama
CBS has unveiled its 2013-2014 schedule. Revealing that comedy is a "priority for us," the network has added four new comedies in its star-studded line-up. One of the high-profile shows is "The Crazy Ones" starring Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar as a father and a daughter which will join "The Big Bang Theory" and "Two and a Half Men" on Thursdays.
Also being added to the Thursday line-up is "The Millers" which has Will Arnett, Margo Martindale, Beau Bridges and J.B. Smoove in the cast ensemble. Arnett plays a recently divorced news reporter who returns to live with his parents.
On Mondays, there is a new comedy titled "Mom" from "Two and a Half Men" executive producer Chuck Lorre. Anna Faris and Allison Janney star as a single mother and her critical, estranged mom respectively.
An ensemble single-camera comedy, "We Are Men", will also join returning shows "How I Met Your Mother" and "2 Broke Girls" on Mondays. Tony Shalhoub, Kal Penn, Chris Smith and Jerry O'Connell play four newly single men trying to figure out life and love in the new series.
On the drama side, there are "Hostages" and "Intelligence" which both get the Mondays, 10 P.M. slot (the former will debut in the fall and air through to January, and the latter will replace in early 2014).
A 15-episode thriller series from Jerry Bruckheimer, "Hostages" follows a doctor (Toni Collette) who is taken hostage on the night before she's supposed to operate on president of the United States. Dylan McDermott and Tate Donovan join the cast.
"Intelligence" sees the return of "Lost" alum Josh Holloway, who takes the role of a high-tech intelligence operative enhanced with a super-computer microchip in his brain. Marg Helgenberger and Meghan Ory also star.
More new shows, "Friends with Better Lives" and "Reckless", will launch in midseason. In the meantime, viewers can feast their eyes on first sneak peeks of the upcoming fall new series. Some of the videos are available below the schedule, while the rest can be seen on CBS' YouTube page.
