Fox's Goodwin Games Gets a Premiere Date
Let The Goodwin Games begin!
Fox’s long-delayed comedy will premiere Monday, May 20 at 8:30/7:30c, star Scott Foley tweeted Wednesday.
The series — from How I Met Your Mother executive producers Carter Bays, Craig Thomas and Chris Harris — stars Becki Newton, T.J. Miller and Foley as a trio of estranged siblings who must reconnect in order to inherit their late father’s fortune.
The comedy’s original 13-episode order was cut to seven in November; as Foley notes, those seven episodes will run consecutively.
In January, Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly hinted that, due to his disinclination to mess with the network’s Tuesday evening comedy block, the series might not air until summer.
“If I thought Goodwin Games was going to be an injection of life to the [comedy block], I’d bring it on earlier,” he said, adding that Games “is a nice show, but I’m not sure it’s going to improve the night, ratings-wise.”Follow @kimroots
