NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - Fox Broadcasting said Thursday it would drastically reduce the commercial levels of two upcoming action dramas -- "Fringe" and "Dollhouse" -- in an effort to reinvigorate broadcast television.
Producer J.J. Abrams' "Fringe" will kick off with a two-hour premiere in August. Joss Whedon's "Dollhouse," which only wrapped up its pilot Friday, will be the second project and begin in January.
Calling it "remote-free TV," Fox Entertainment chairman Peter Liguori told advertisers during its "upfront" presentation that broadcast TV needed "a jolt" and a focus on the viewers -- and that "the populist network" was just the company to do it.
"We're going to have less commercials, less promotional time and less reason for viewers to use the remote," Liguori said. "We're going to have more character, more content, more value."
"Remote-free TV. It's a simple concept and potentially revolutionary," he said. "We're going to redefine the viewing experience."
Both "Fringe" and "Dollhouse" would have network commercial loads of about five minutes per hour, about half the usual. The commercial pods also would be shorter, and they would have about half the promo load as well, all to enhance the viewing experience. Liguori and ad sales chief Jon Nesvig acknowledged that there was a risk but that the network was committed to doing those two shows that way.
"Fringe" and "Dollhouse" were the first two new programs shown to the advertisers. "Dollhouse" will air at 8 p.m. beginning in January, just behind "24." The marketing campaign for "Fringe" began in New York newspapers Thursday.
Fox Entertainment president Kevin Reilly said "Fringe" had already "exceeded our very high expectations." Reilly said that "Dollhouse" had just wrapped production on the pilot but that the network already had seen seven scripts for the show.
"I'm confident that this will become the next tentpole series for Fox," Reilly said.
Dunque avremo episodi di ben 55 minuti, stile TV via cavo?

Per la storia dei 60 minuiti e 5 di pubblcità lo sto sperimentando con The Tudors, che dura appunto sui 55 e ha pochissime interruzioni!
Spero diventi lo standard!

Negli USA (almeno durante la serata, nelle altre fasce non so) gli slot dei programmi sono di 60 minuti netti (30 per le sit com).
All'interno di questi 60 minuti ci sono 40 minuti di show e 20 spartiti tra spot nazionali, locali e advertising del network stesso. La FOX con Fringe e Dollhouse vuole togliere 10 minuti agli spot e darli allo show.
Una cosa del genere è la norma per le TV via cavo ("I Tudors" citati da S!N ad esempio), ma per la TV generalista sarebbe una vera e propria rivoluzione.
@S!N Si parla di "overarching mythology" nelle interviste, quindi credo proprio che ci sarà un forte filo conduttore.

Benissimo! Anche perchè ammetto di non amare molto le serie con episodi autoconclusivi
Ad ogni modo ho letto solo ora l'intro! ... me l'ero persa nel primo post !
Sembra un mix di genere o sbaglio? Un pò X-Files, un pò C.S.I. (o forse dovrei dire Huose visto il ruolo dello scenziato/medico) un pizzico di LOST e una spruzzata di 24
p.s.: ho visto ora il budget a disposizione del pilot... 10.000.000 di dollari! E se dovesse avere successo sono pronti 2.000.000 di dollari a episodio!!
