Columbia Broadcasting System is one of the Big Three American broadcast networks. From a radio network to a conglomerate that provides entertainment to a large section of the country, CBS has become a popular place for talented writers and producers to launch their ideas into successful TV shows. The network has offered a wide range of stories to its audience, and in the future, promises to make some great new additions to its library. Be it police procedural dramas like ‘Blue Bloods’ and ‘Elementary’, or one of the most successful sitcoms like ‘The Big Bang Theory’, with a legion of great shows, CBS continues to prove its rightful place amongst the biggest broadcast networks. Here is the list of the upcoming new shows coming out on CBS in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that these latest CBS shows are as good as some of the recent series it produced.
17. The Code (April 9, 2019)
‘The Code’ will follow the story of the Marines who follow the path of serving military justice. In their pursuit, they often come across the situation where they have to make some of the hardest decisions of their lives. No matter what or who they face in the courtroom, there is only one thing that matters to them- and that is justice. The series will star Luke Mitchell (‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’, ‘Blindspot’) in the lead role of Captain John Abraham, while Dana Delany (‘China Beach’, ‘Desperate Housewives’), Anna Wood (‘The Good Wife’, ‘Reckless’) and Ato Essandoh (‘Django Unchained’, ‘Altered Carbon’, ‘Blue Bloods’) will appear in the supporting roles.
16. The Red Line (April 28, 2019)
Set in Chicago, this series will be centred around an event that will change the course of the lives of three families. Harrison Brennan was an African-American doctor who was shot by a white cop, Officer Paul Evans. This event creates a division in the society where one half thinks that the officer did it on purpose and that he must be racially prejudiced. On the other hand, there are people who believe Evans when he says that the incident was a mistake and there was no racial antagonism involved in it. The story is told from the perspective of the various people who get involved in this controversial case.
15. Halfway There (TBA)
