Candice Bergen was the star of the classic sitcom "Murphy Brown." Now she's back in ABC's "Pearl," about a strong-willed matriarch battling cancer as well as her family members.
Fox is going to try a reboot of "The Exorcist," the 1970s horror classic about demonic possession, this time with Oscar winner Geena Davis in the starring role.

"Designated Survivor" is ABC's political drama with Kiefer Sutherland tapped as President after a terrorist act kills his predecessor. The show was ordered straight-to-series, so we will definitely see it.
"Parenthood" writer-producer Jason Katims is behind "Bunker Hill," a new CBS medical drama about a cutting-edge hospital and the mysterious tech titan behind it.
Producer Greg Berlanti ("Supergirl") has another CW show that's getting buzz: "Riverdale," which is kind of like the Archie comics as reimagined by David Lynch.
