New Series Premiering in 2012

As the failed fall shows fall off the grid, new spring shows are set to premier in 2012. Here are a few you might want to check out:

Premier Date: March 1, 2012

Weekly: Mondays 10/9c on NBC

Stars: Jason Isaacs, Laura Allen, and Dylan Minnette

Tagline: Two Dreams. One Reality.

The Plot: Life is good for Detective Michael Britton. He has a beautiful wife, son, and life. Then things get a little weird. After the family is involved in a car accident, Michaelís world is turned upside down; and not for the typical reasons. Michael no longer has one world, he has two; in one, his son survived the car accident and his wife is dead, and in the other, his wife survived the car accident and his son is dead. To make matters worse, Michael doesnít know which world is real. Not only does each world lack one of his loved ones, but each world has a completely different set of circumstances; for instance, Michael has different partners and cases in each world. The thing that eludes Michael is which world is real and which is a dream, but Michael doesnít want to figure it out; knowing that means that he canít have the best of both worlds.

Reminds Us Of: Premonition.

Premier Date: March 12, 2012

Weekly: Mondays at 9/8c on Fox

Stars: Kiefer Sutherland, David Mazouz, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw

Tagline: We are all interconnected. Our lives are invisibly tied to those whose destinies touch ours.

The Plot: A widower, Martin Bohm (Kiefer Sutherland), must raise his son Jake (David Mazouz), an 11 year-old who is emotionally challenged, never speaks, and doesnít allow anyone to touch him. As if that wasnít difficult enough, Jake is also obsessed with numbers; he spends his time writing strings of numbers in countless notebooks. No matter how much Martin tries to get his son to communicate with him, he fails. Finally, Jake is taken from Martin by the state after Clea Hopkins (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), a social worker, determines that Jakeís needs cannot be met by a single father. It is shortly after this that Martin meets Arthur Teller (Danny Glover), a college professor with an expertise in gifted children. It is after meeting Arthur that it becomes clear that Jakeís propensity to obsessively write strings of numbers is not a disability, but a gift. Jake has the ability to communicate the interconnectivity of the universe; he can observe patterns in life hidden to the rest of us, and it is when he writes strings of numbers that he is trying to communicate those observations to others. Thus, Martin and Jake become a ragtag team, capable of knowing events before they happen.

Tagline: TBD

The Plot: June (Dreama Walker) is on her way to living the dream. She just got her dream job and apartment; the only thing standing in her way is moving to New York City. At least thatís what she thinks. Once she arrives in New York her dreams come to a crashing halt when she realizes that it was all a scam. Left jobless, homeless, and in debt, June has no choice but to take a job at a coffee shop and move in with Chloe (Krysten Ritter). Chloe has questionable morals and is a serious troublemaker, something Midwesterner June is not necessarily accustomed to. After testing each other, June and Chloe eventually establish a mutual respect for one another. Far from expected, June finds herself in a life filled with eccentric friends and a roommate that keeps her on her toes.
