Default Gen-TV UpFronts 2017-Primetime Schedule

Gen-TV Networks
Fall 2017 Schedule
Gen-TV Network

Gen-TV Network has formally announced it’s Fall 2017-2018 schedule, and the new line-up includes a number of high profile changes and risky moves.

Among the bold moves the network has in store is moving smash hit children’s series “Magic School” and “Zendaya” out of their Monday night timeslots and into a Sunday night timeslot. Moving TV’s #1 rated drama “The Mallory’s of Jefferson County” from Thursdays to Wednesdays, and benching returning dramas “Sisters” and “Boston Homicide” until mid-season.

In addition to returning series, the network has ordered seventeen new series for fall, and has an additional five on hold for mid-season. The new series are comprised of six comedies and sixteen dramas. There is also one reality program as well. Among the highlights of the new series are Nick Cannon in a new family comedy “Homecourt Advantage”, “Jack of All Trades”, a spin-off of “Deadly Visions” starring Stephen Weber and, six-week mini-series, “American Citizen”, a timely political drama about a revered and highly respected Iranian-American actress who finds herself facing her worst nightmare; being accused of terrorism and denied entry back into the US. Yasmine Al Massari (Quantico) will star as Alena, the actress; and Academy Award Nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo will play Amari, her mother and a respected attorney trying to get her back into the country, only to face her own legal issues as well.

Gen-TV's President Ross Chin presented this schedule to advertisers along with Vice President Alex Montez and Cain Wentworth, the chairperson of Gen-TV's Board of Directors. The lavish presentation was held at New York's Regency Plaza Hotel and was simulcast live to Los Angeles at a crowded reception at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The presentation was co-hosted by Patti Labelle (Mama Knows Best) and Justin Long (Making It Work).
