Michael Strahan, Eliza Dushku
Fox is leaving precious little to be revealed at its official Monday upfront presentation of its fall schedule.
Having already renewed Fringe and Lie to Me and announced its pick-up of the new series Sons of Tucson, Human Target and Past Life, the network now has decided to tackle Brothers, a comedy starring former NFL star Michael Strahan.
Meanwhile, on the renewal front, sources tell TVGuide.com that Dollhouse is now "looking really good" for a Season 2. Created by Joss Whedon and starring Eliza Dushku, Dollhouse wrapped up its freshman run on May 8. The action-drama averaged about 3 million viewers each week, not including impressive DVR playback boosts.
Brothers, which received a 13-episode order, follows a retired gridiron great (Strahan) and his brother (played by Darryl "Chill" Mitchell), who uses a wheelchair. CCH Pounder (The Shield) also is on the cast.
