AceShowbiz - The CW is the latest network to announce its primetime schedule for the 2018-2019 season, adding a Sunday lineup to its schedule. Returning superhero series "Supergirl" is now moving to Sunday at 8 P.M., paired with new reboot of "Charmed" which gets the Sunday 9 P.M. slot.
"We wanted to have an established show on Sunday night. We wanted name value with 'Charmed' on there," said CW boss Mark Pedowitz. "We felt that it was two shows that are empowered women. We were making a statement that we were not kidding, that we're not phoning it in on Sunday night."
Another DC series, "Arrow", also gets a new slot, being moved Monday night at 9 P.M. It will follow up "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" which stays on its 8 P.M. slot. Meanwhile, "The Flash" and "Black Lightning" are still paired on Tuesday nights.
Other new series "Roswell" and "New Mexico", meanwhile, are saved for midseason.
Along with the schedule, The CW releases the first trailers for the "Charmed" reboot and "All American". "Charmed" stars Melonie Diaz as firebrand social justice warrior Melanie "Mel" Vera and Sarah Jeffrey as her sister, fun-loving Maggie, whose family is shocked by a tragedy when their mother dies in a horrifying accident. Their sibling bond is threatened to tear apart as Mel is unable to accept the official explanation of their mother's death, while Maggie accuses her of being morbidly obsessed.
And then, another huge shock shows up at their front door: they have an older sister, brilliant geneticist Macy (Madeleine Mantock), whom their mother kept a secret all these years. Each of the girls suddenly exhibit impossible new abilities: Mel can freeze time, Maggie starts hearing others' thoughts, and Macy has telekinetic powers. As they begin to learn about who they really are (powerful witches), they find out that their mother’s death was no accident - she was murdered by unknown dark forces.
As for "All American", it centers on Spencer James, a rising high school football player and a student at South Crenshaw High. Compton is the place he calls home. But when Beverly High School's football coach Billy Baker recruits him to join his team in Beverly Hills, Spencer's mother, Grace, and his best friend, Coop, convince Spencer it's an opportunity he has to seize.
Now Spencer must navigate two worlds, the south side neighborhood that he knows and the affluent Beverly Hills world that has offered him an opportunity for something bigger. Inspired by the life of NFL player Spencer Paysinger, the series stars Daniel Ezra, Taye Diggs, [c=Samantha Logan, Bre-Z, Greta Onieogou, Monet Mazur, Michael Evans Behling, Cody Christian and Karimah Westbrook.
