Fox Fall 2011 schedule

Monday, 16 May 2011 08:24 AM Written by

Following on NBC's release of its fall schedule yesterday, Fox offers its 2011-12 schedule today, and, as expected, it does not include the shot-in-Pittsburgh pilot "Locke & Key," which is being shopped to other networks.

"It's actually a cool pilot with good talent involved," said Fox Entertainment president Kevin Reilly when I asked him about "Locke" on a teleconference with reporters this morning. "There were tough decisions  and I wish it was an easier decision to make. It came down to we liked the shows we picked and they fit better. That sounds pat but that's really what it is."

A more surprising move: Fox has canceled "America's Most Wanted" as a weekly series after 23 years. Four, two-hour, quarterly specials will air instead.

It's upfront week, which means the networks will be announcing their fall schedules this week and we'll learn which existing shows they keep or cancel and what new series they pick up.

Check back here for the press releases from the networks, which I'll post as soon as I get them. NBC gets a jump on the competition by announcing its schedule today around 2 p.m. ET, a day in advance of its presentation to advertisers in New York.
