Trailers for 'The Passage,' 'Rel' and more new FOX shows

There's also a new series from Danny Strong (Empire) called Proven Innocent that revolves around a criminal defense attorney, and on the comedy side we have Get Out breakout Lil Rel Howery's sitcom Rel as well as the Charlie Day-produced The Cool Kids. The series stars four comedy veterans: Tony Award nominee David Alan Grier ("The Carmichael Show", "In Living Color"), Emmy Award nominee Martin Mull ("Veep", "Roseanne"), Emmy Award victor Leslie Jordan ("Will and Grace", "American Horror Story") and Emmy Award victor Vicki Lawrence ("Mama's Family", "The Carol Burnett Show"). But that show also co-stars Sinbad ("A Different World", "The Sinbad Show") as Rel's father.

Fox will bring back "Last Man Standing", which stars Tim Allen and ran for six seasons on ABC.

The network, which made headlines for canceling fan favorites like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Last Man on Earth, and The Mick, revealed its new schedule, which accommodates the network's recent acquisition of the NFL's Thursday Night Football.

Meanwhile, Fox also picked up a pair of mid-season dramas: "The Passage", based on the Justin Cronin triolgy, about "a secret medical facility where scientists are experimenting with a risky virus that could lead to the cure for all disease, but also carries the potential to wipe out the human race;" Mark-Paul Gosselaar stars; and "Proven Innocent", about "an underdog criminal defense firm led by a fierce and uncompromising lawyer", with Rachelle Lefevre, Vincent Kartheiser, Russell Hornsby, Brian d'Arcy James and Nikki M. James. Mark-Paul Gosselaar plays a federal agent who winds up protecting a young girl chosen to be a test subject.

Fox will present a live telecast of the musical "Rent" on Sunday, Jan. 27. Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson returns as host of the series.

Monday: "The Resident" at 8 p.m.; "9-1-1" at 9 p.m. Meanwhile, "Lethal Weapon" - which sat squarlely on the bubble after co-lead Clayne Crawford's firing - got a pick-up too.
