Fox looking for a comic boost with new fall lineup

Two of the sitcoms, "Running Wilde" and "Raising Hope" will debut in the fall along with one of the dramas, "Lonestar." The rest will all get mid-season launches.

Here are the new series -- in the network's own "special" words:

RAISING HOPE

Premiering this fall is RAISING HOPE, the new family comedy from Emmy Award winner Greg Garcia ("My Name Is Earl"), starring Lucas Neff ("The Beast"), Martha Plimpton ("How To Make It In America"), Garret Dillahunt ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles") and Academy and Emmy Award winner Cloris Leachman ("Malcolm In The Middle"). The sweet, offbeat comedy follows Jimmy Chance (Neff), a well-meaning screw-up trying his best to raise his infant daughter.

RUNNING WILDE

Also debuting this fall is RUNNING WILDE, the new romantic comedy from "Arrested Development's" Jim Vallely, Mitch Hurwitz and Will Arnett. Starring Arnett ("30 Rock") and Keri Russell ("Waitress," "Felicity"), the comedy centers on a lovable, but immature playboy (Arnett) trying desperately to win (or buy) the heart of his childhood sweetheart (Russell), the über-liberal humanitarian who got away.

LONESTAR

LONESTAR, a sophisticated and provocative drama set against the sprawling backdrop of big Texas oil, will premiere this fall. From Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman ("Party of Five"), writer Kyle Killen and directed by Marc Webb ("(500) Days of Summer"), the compelling series stars newcomer James Wolk as a charismatic and brilliant schemer who has entangled himself in a deep, complex web from which he can't break free. He's caught between two very different lives and two very different women.


TERRA NOVA

TERRA NOVA, an epic family adventure 85 million years in the making, is the new event drama slated for midseason from executive producers Steven Spielberg ("Jurassic Park," "The Pacific"), Peter Chernin, Brannon Braga (24, "Star Trek: Enterprise") and David Fury (24, "Lost"). The action-adventure series follows an ordinary family on an extraordinary journey back in time to prehistoric Earth as a part of a massive expedition to save the human race.


RIDE-ALONG

The new drama scheduled for a midseason debut is RIDE-ALONG. From creator Shawn Ryan ("The Shield," "The Unit"), the fast-paced series, shot on location in Chicago and starring Jason Clarke ("Public Enemies"), Jennifer Beals (LIE TO ME) and Delroy Lindo ("Kidnapped"), will take audiences on an unflinching and unpredictable ride through the streets of Chicago to navigate crime and corruption with the most respected – and notorious – cops in the city.

BOB'S BURGERS

Joining the Sunday ANIMATION DOMINATION lineup in midseason is BOB'S BURGERS, a new animated comedy series from creator Loren Bouchard ("Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist") about a man, his family and their floundering burger joint. Despite the greasy counters, lousy location and occasionally spotty service, Bob and his lovable and quirky family are convinced their burgers.

MIXED SIGNALS

MIXED SIGNALS, scheduled for a spring premiere, is a new relationship comedy created by Bob Fisher ("Wedding Crashers") about three longtime friends and their attempts to balance their committed relationships with their desire for freedom. The ensemble comedy stars Nelson Franklin ("I Love You, Man"), David Denman ("The Office"), Kris Marshall (HUMAN TARGET), Liza Lapira ("Dexter") and Alexandra Breckenridge (FAMILY GUY) and reveals how friendships and romances enhance – and further complicate – the lives of men and the women who love them
