PARAMOUNT+ SCRIPTED DRAMA SERIES
HALO: Original sci-fi action series based on the Xbox video game franchise, about a future war between humanity and an alien threat known as "The Covenant." Pablo Schreiber ("Den of Thieves") stars as Master Chief alongside Natascha McElhone ("Californication") as Dr. Halsey.
CRIMINAL MINDS: Few details are available about this reboot of the long-running procedural, except that it will break from the traditional format by focusing on just a single investigation over 10 episodes. No word yet on whether any cast members from the original 15-season run plan to return.
STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS: The latest "Star Trek" spin-off is a direct prequel to the original series, set during Christopher Pike's tenure as captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise, prior to Captain Kirk's arrival. (Mr. Spock will be on hand as Science Officer.)
FLASHDANCE: "Mad Men" vet Tracy McMillan will write and executive produce this modern-day update of the 1983 drama, which will follow a Black dancer who works at a strip club but dreams of joining the ballet. Angela Robinson ("True Blood") will direct.
THE ITALIAN JOB: "Hawaii Five-O" writer Matt Wheeler will write and executive produce this update of the 1969 Michael Caine heist thriller, which was remade in 2003 with Mark Wahlberg and Charlize Theron. The new series revolves around the grandchildren of Caine's character from the original movie, Charlie Croker, who embark on a new quest after inhering the old man's safety deposit box.
THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH: A new take on the classic sci-fi novel by Walter Tevis, whose writing also inspired 2020's "The Queen's Gambit," starring Chiwetel Ejiofor as an alien who arrives on Earth at a turning point for the human species. The "Clarice" team of Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet will write and executive produce the adaptation. Tevis' novel previously inspired a (very good!) 1976 film starring David Bowie.
LOVE STORY: "Gossip Girl" and "The O.C." creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage will reteam for this new take on the 1970 romantic drama, one of several new Paramount+ shows based on the studio's classic films.
THE PARALLAX VIEW: Paula Wagner ("Marshall") will produce this series update of the 1974 conspiracy thriller, which starred Warren Beatty as a journalist investigating a shadowy organization's connection to a string of political assassinations.
LAND MAN: Drama series about the world of oil drilling in West Texas, following both the roughnecks who work the rigs and the billionaires who fund them. The series is one of several headed to Paramount+ via "Yellowstone" creator Taylor Sheridan.
MAYOR OF KINGSTOWN: Another show from Taylor Sheridan, this one follows a powerful family in Kingstown, Michigan, where incarceration is the most important local industry. Jeremy Renner will star as the literal Mayor of Kingstown, Mike McLusky. "Training Day" director Antoine Fuqua is on board as an executive producer.
Y:1883: "Yellowstone" spin-off set in the titular year, following members of the Dutton family as they journey west across the Great Plains seeking new opportunity.
6666: Another "Yellowstone" spin-off, this one's a period show about "world class cowboys," set on a massive West Texas ranch where "the rule of law and the laws of nature merge."
THE OFFER: An original 10-episode limited series about the making of the classic Paramount film "The Godfather," told from the perspective of Oscar-winning producer Al Ruddy. "Escape at Dannemora" vet Michael Tolkin wrote the script; Ruddy himself executive produced.
