It is expected to take place within the universe of Syfy’s 2004 series rather than the 1978 original series.

Dr. Death (TBD): Based on Wonderly’s hit podcast of the same name, Dr. Death tells the terrifying true story of Dr. Christopher Duntsch (Jamie Dornan), a rising star in the Dallas medical community. Young, charismatic, and ostensibly brilliant, Dr. Duntsch was building a flourishing neurosurgery practice when everything suddenly changed.

When Jonathan surprises himself by saying yes, it sets off a chain of events that turn Ellie and Jonathan’s personal and professional lives upside down as they try to turn their chosen family into a biological one.

Five Bedrooms (TBD): This is a story of five unlikely allies in life who throw caution to the wind and hit upon a unique solution to a common problem. Ignoring the nay-saying of families and friends, they’re teaming up, signing contracts, and buying a house together. Yes, it’s a grand social experiment. It might be genius, or it might be a total disaster…but they’re not putting their lives on hold for love any longer. There’s just one glaring problem: They’ll have to live with each other.

Girls5eva (TBD): From the mind of Tina Fey comes a new comedy with deep love for the ’90s.

Intelligence (July 15): Intelligence is a workplace comedy set in the U.K.’s Government Communications Headquarters — a kind of weedier, geekier, more bureaucratic version of MI5 and MI6, where they tackle international and domestic Cyber Crime from a desktop.

One of Us Is Lying (Pilot): Based on Karen McManus’s best-selling YA novel, One Of Us Is Lying is the story of what happens when five high schoolers walk into detention and only four make it out alive. Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide.

Punky Brewster (TBD): In this multicamera/hybrid continuation of the iconic ’80s sitcom about a bright young girl raised by a foster dad, Punky (Soleil Moon Frye) is now a single mother of three trying to get her life back on track when she meets a young girl who reminds her a lot of her younger self.

Queer as Folk (Development): Fueled with the same spirit as the original series, the bold new Queer as Folk invites audiences into the lives of an eclectic ensemble of new characters who are brought together by tragedy. The show explores the ever-expanding boundaries of the queer community and occasionally harsh realities of our time with authenticity, outrageous humor, and compassion. The heartbreak that will tear the characters apart in the pilot will ignite the fire that brings them together and sets the stage for a vibrant and cathartic series about resilience and love.

Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) gets into hot water for closing too many low-income high schools, he proposes they send the affected students to the highest performing schools in the state — including Bayside High.

Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley will reprise their roles as AC Slater and Jessie Spano, respectively.

Straight Talk (Development): Produced by Rashida Jones and starring Jada Pinkett Smith, Straight Talk examines what happens when two opposing ideologies are forced into an odd coupling.

Their mentor — Wizard Whitebeard (Thomas Lennon), a seasoned wanderer — sends these inquisitive young adventurers on international travel missions so they can earn their stripes and someday become wizard-level wanderers too. But standing in Waldo and Wenda’s way is their rival, Odlulu (Eva Carlton), who can’t help but cause trouble wherever she goes.
