New Sitcom Set in Houston

Will be interesting to see how long this stays on the air:

Fox Network just announced its fall schedule, and in just under the wire is Brothers, a low-key comedy set in Houston starring former Westbury and TSU star and future NFL Hall of Famer Michael Strahan. The Hollywood Reporter claims Brothers received strong feedback during the pilot's test-viewings last week, and that Fox has signed for 13 episodes.

I always forget that Michael Strahan is a Houston native. Good to see another show set in Houston!

If you want to see previews of the show and some of FOX's other new shows follow this link: http://www.fox.com/futurefox/blogs/

It seems to me like they are trying too hard to be funny in the show. The house they live in looks kind of scary and the sky out side is kind of dull. Does look like a place I think of when I think of Houston. Hopefully they will fix all of that before the show comes out.

Judging from the two clips on the Fox website I think this show has major possibilities. A very strong cast, with Daryl "Chill" Mitchell getting most of the good lines and providing most of the laughs. I'm really glad to see him still working. It's terrible what happened to him. That wheel chair is real.

Paralyzed from the waist down in a motorcycle accident in 2001. He's one of the most talented and genuinely funny people who ever stood in front of a camera, and it's great to see he's as funny as ever, sitting down.

The actress playing his mother is CCH Pounder, a highly respected dramatic actress of stage and screen, now trying her hand at comedy. She's a Brit you know. Even has an English accent off-camera. Her initials stand Carol Christine Hilaria.

Michael Strahan couldn't ask for better supporting players for his sitcom. This show has everything going for it. Now if the writing can hold up and if Fox will just give them a good time slot, it'll be a hit.
