Fox-ville

Back2u What to say about the new Fox sked? Lotta new shows, lotta familiar faces a la Kelsey Grammer, Patricia Heaton, Julianna Margulies and Parker Posey. Lot of star power behind the scenes, from the “visionary” Lasse Hallstrom (as he’s billed in Fox’s press release) directing a guy who can’t die in “New Amsterdam” to the Farrelly brothers (“Rules for Starting Over”) to Mike Figgis (Margulies’ “Canterbury’s Law”) to the drama pilot zen-master David Nutter (“The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) who can get a pilot picked up just by touching the script. James Burrows brings his gracious touch to the Grammer/Heaton sitcom-cast “Back to You.” I’m curious why Fox is going the “‘Til Death” route with that high-profile comedy (which is also graced with the comedy stylings of Fred Willard) by launching it the fall rather during the second front in January when the network has the “Idol” glow around it. But Fox scheduling guru Preston Beckman has been at this game a long time. He knows what he’s doing.
