Below are the five most anticipated new shows of August:
5. “Emergence” — ABC, September 24
Description: “A character-driven genre thriller, ‘Emergence’ is about a police chief who takes in a young child she finds near the site of a mysterious accident who has no memory of what has happened. The investigation draws her into a conspiracy larger than she ever imagined, and the child’s identity is at the center of it all.”
4. “Unbelievable” — Netflix, September 13
Description: “After a young woman is accused of lying about a rape, two female detectives investigate a spate of eerily similar attacks. Inspired by true events. Starring: Toni Collette, Merritt Wever, Kaitlyn Dever.”
3. “Prodigal Son” — Fox, September 23
Description: “Malcolm Bright (Tom Payne, ‘The Walking Dead’) has a gift. He knows how killers think and how their minds work. Why? Back in the 1990s, his father was one of the worst, a notorious serial killer called ‘The Surgeon.’ So it makes sense Bright is the best criminal psychologist around; murder is the family business. He will use his twisted genius to help the NYPD solve crimes and stop killers, all while dealing with a manipulative mother, annoyingly normal sister, a homicidal father still looking to bond with his prodigal son, and his own constantly evolving neuroses.”
2. “Stumptown” — ABC, September 25
Description: “Based on the ‘Stumptown’ graphic novel series, the ‘Stumptown’ TV show follows Dex Parios (Cobie Smulders) — a strong, assertive and sharp-witted army veteran with a complicated love life, gambling debt and a brother to take care of in Portland, Oregon. Her military intelligence skills make her a great PI, but her unapologetic style puts her in the firing line of hardcore criminals and not quite in alliance with the police.”
1. “The Politician” — Netflix, September 27
Description: “Payton has known since childhood that he’s going to be president. First he’ll have to navigate the most treacherous political landscape: high school.”
