Collider have posted an extensive look at some of the new and upcoming FOX television shows the network is rolling out for next season. And while the majority are quite laughable and will certainly face the FOX axe, there is one that could at the very least, last a full season.

Starring Saturday Night Live alum Andy Samberg, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a goofy buddy cop comedy that co-stars serious heavyweight Andre Braugher (who has been freed from the purgatory that was the hideous Last Resort show).  The show is produced by Dan Goor and Michael Shoor (Parks and Recreation) and is a single-camera workplace comedy about what happens when a hotshot detective (Samberg) gets a new Captain (Braugher) with a lot to prove.

Okay, so maybe it doesn’t look that good after all. But have a look through the rest of the stuff FOX is rolling out, it’s pretty bad.

There are few ways to perish more terrifyingly than to be lost in space. Alfonso Cuaron‘s (Children Of Men) latest portrays such an ordeal. Gravity stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock as two astronauts stranded in space when their space shuttle is destroyed with no communication back to Earth.

How do you survive this?

The film is slated for release this October and was originally set to star Robert Downey Jr. before the actor was replaced by Clooney. Cuaron and his son Jonas, wrote the screenplay for the film.

It feels a little like Oscar season with the first trailer for upcoming historical drama The Butler hitting the web. Ticking all the prerequisite boxes for a golden statuette, The Butler is the inspiring true story of Eugene Allen, who worked at the White House for more than 30 years.

Directed by Lee Daniels (Precious), The Butler features everyone under the sun. Led by Forest Whitaker, the film features Oprah Winfrey, Robin Williams, Jane Fonda, Cuba Gooding Jr., John Cusack (as Richard Nixon?!), Terrence Howard, Lenny Kravitz, Mariah Carey (!!), Minka Kelly (yes!), Alan Rickman, Vanessa Redgrave, Liev Schreiber, Melissa Leo, James Marsden and everyone else who apparently, wasn’t busy.

The Butler opens this October.

Kristen Wiig and Annette Bening may not be the most likely on-screen combo, but the two team up for comedic spills in the indie flick Girl Most Likely. The film, originally titled Imogene, screened at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival before getting picked up by Lionsgate for distribution.

Wiig stars as a playwright who stages a suicide in an attempt to win back her ex, only to wind up in the custody of her gambling-addict mother (Bening). The film co-stars Matt Dillon and Natasha Lyonne and is set for a limited run this July. No word as of yet whether the film will see release in Australia.
