A The Librarians Community
Wednesday 9:00 PM on ABC1


Whenever I make a really bad joke, I like to punch it up at the end by yelling, "Boom!" It always makes me feel better, as if I'm my own one-woman self-confidence boost. I guess TNT is stealing my strategy, because it's come up with a new tagline to go with its new programming slate: "TNT Drama. Boom." Here's the network's official explanation of the new slogan:

Boom is the sound that drama makes when it hits you. Like the plot twist that sends your head spinning. The clue that leaves your jaw on the floor. The chase that makes your heart pound. The half-court shot that has you standing on your couch screaming. Boom is the reveal, the shock, the cliffhanger, and the climax. It's the moment you sit glued to the screen, fists clenched, heart racing, hair on edge. The moment it all comes together. Or all falls apart. TNT Drama. Boom. 

And in an attempt to back that up, TNT—along with its sister network TBS—has released first-look trailers for several recently announced series. Let's have a look at them shall we?


Proof

Last week, TNT announced a pair of new series, and one of them was Proof, from The Closer's Kyra Sedgwick. Starring Jennifer Beals, the series follows a surgeon (Beals) who begins investigating supernatural phenomena—including resurrections, out-of-body experiences, and hauntings—after her own near-death experience and the loss of her son. Proof will premiere in 2015.



Public Morals

Written by, produced by, and starring Ed Burns, Public Morals is set in the 1960s and follows New York City's Vice Division, which is full of police officers who walk the line between morality and criminality. Like Proof, it will premiere in 2015.



The Librarians

Also on deck is The Librariansa new series based on the network's Libraian films starring Noah Wyle. The series stars Rebecca Romijn and centers on an ancient organization whose mission is to protect the world from the secret, magical reality that's hidden all around us. Look for it to debut this fall.



Transporter: The Series

Based on Luc Besson's Transporter films and originally set up at Cinemax, Transporter: The Series stars Chris Vance as professional transporter Frank Martin. It will premiere this winter.



TNT's sister network TBS has three new comedies on the way. So while we're here, let's take a look at those, too!


Angie Tribeca

Created by The Office's Steve Carell, Angie Tribeca (working title) stars Rashida Jones in her first post-Parks and Recreation role. The single-camera comedy is a spoof on cop procedurals, and Jones plays a ten-year veteran of the LAPD who's working in the Really Heinous Crimes Unit. Her fellow officers are eccentric and competent, but they reveal way too much information about their personal lives. Look for it in 2015.



Buzzy's

Buzzy's is a multi-camera workplace comedy from the creators of Will & Grace. It's about a group of employes at a Massachusetts barbershop. It will also premiere in 2015.



Your Family or Mine

Finally, Your Family or Mine is about a young married couple played by My Boys' Kyle Howard and 'Til Death's Kat Foster. Episodes will alternate between focusing on her family and his family, and surprise, surprise: It too will premiere in 2015!



Okay, let's hear your first impressions! Anything here look good to you? Do any of TNT's new dramas make you wanna yell "BOOM!"?

Proof, Public Morals, The Librarians for sure as a drama shows, Your Family or Mine as comedy show, The Transporter is not new, I have seen the European edition, it was very exiting like the movie lots of driving, fighting and sleeping with pretty women, the rest of the other shows I might give it a quick look….

I am VERY excited for The Librarians. Loved the movies, and love Christian Kane, so this is like everything I could hope for.

I loved the Librarian movies when I watched them. I am bound to love the show. I hope the writers and actors do it justice. Plus yay Christian Kane is back on my screen!!! I've been missing him ever since Leverage ended.

I love the new tagline. Any network(s) that are willing to actually have a slogan or even name that signifies what their brand of storytelling is about is an important marketing technique, and is great for ciewers because they can get a sense of what sort of television to expect from the network overall.

Proof, sorry, not my cup of tea.

Public Morals, so is Ed Burns (not the Kooky kind) going to star in all of TNT's dopey period cop dramas now? At least this doesn't look as shallow as Mob City, but I'm not a huge fan of crooked cop shows so I'll probably not watch. For a budget cast, it doesn't look too bad though.

The Librarians looks like Warehouse 14 to me, and I'll probably watch because there's just nothing fun this next season. Trailer could have been a wee bit more plot-oriented though.

Oh hell yeah, love me the idea of Transporter: The Series, but Chris Vance is smiling too much already. Still, this looks like a watch, even if it is implausible to see an Audi instead of a Beemer - hope The Transporter likes being in the shop a lot. Wait, this aired already overseas 3 years ago - that's weird. Still, looks watchable.

Angie Tribeca, is this a wannabe Police Squad? This might work, that trailer was a mess but there was funny material in it.

Not even looking at the others.

I'm really looking forward to The Librarians. The movies were low budget but done well enough to be watchable. They always had a made-for-TV feel about them so a TV series could work well. But if Noah Wyle is going to work on The Librarians, does that mean this is the last season of Falling Skies?

Wow... those comedies... Hard pass.

When I first saw the description for Angie Tribeca I thought, "Oh. They're trying to cash in on Brooklyn 99's success by doing a similar show."

However, after seeing the trailer, the show has way more of a Police Squad!/The Naked Gun feel to it rather than a B99 vibe. Should be interesting, and maybe worth checking out.

Angie Tribeca looks good, I always liked Rashida Jones.

I watch Falling Skies & Dallas from TNT. I plan on giving The Last Ship & Legends a try this summer. None of their new fall shows interest me. But there are 3 in development i'll give a try:

I hope that "Boom" tagline gets dropped soon.

As for the shows, definitely more interested in seeing "The Librarians" after seeing the trailer. I like the cast and I'm just a sucker for this genre.

Proof. Trying to loop in that christian viewership that liked moves like proof of heaven. That would be a big no.

Hey, Public Morals looks ........ Hey is that Rapaport? Screw you TNT. Nope, never ever again will I watch a show with him in it.

Transporter. I have watched it, it isn't bad it just isn't Statham.

Librarians looks like a combination if Warehouse 13 and Leverage.

Angie Tribecca kind of reminds me of the comedy of the Naked Gun series, those were fun plus rashida jones is pretty.

The rest look horrible. Not as horrible as Public Morals though

"Librarians looks like a combination if Warehouse 13 and Leverage."

Watch the movies and you'll get a clear idea of what it's like. It's sort of a made-for-TV Indiana Jones.

I never would have expected it to become a TV series though. Maybe they decided that instead of doing another movie they'd do a series.

The Librarians is not a "BOOM" kind of show. It's more like a wimpy "faaart."

The Librarian appeals to me a lot because I really like Warehouse 13, but the production value does seem to be worse than Warehouse 13, and Warehouse 13 has pretty "economical" special effects. I'm torn, but if it ever airs in Canada, I'll give it a shot.

Omg. Angie Tribeca looks great. Everyone in that cast is amazing. Why is this on tbs?

Ah, Transporter: The Series finally has a network in the US? I saw the whole first season last year... it was okay. It was basically the premise -- which I enjoy -- that kept me watching throughout the season; the acting and writing were often poor. Plus, this version will be censored, since I recall there being a bit of nudity. It certainly didn't help that there was no clear order of episodes, so the plot kept getting switching annoyingly.


... And everything else here looks so terrible. It's no wonder I've never been able to enjoy TBS and TNT much (Leverage is the only exception, I think).

So is Noah Wyle going to be on The Librarians and Falling Skies, both on TNT?

I have an idea for a reality show. Put an ensemble cast together for a comedy show like the shows that put singing groups together, combining Survivor, American Idol, and The Voice, narrowing down a group of contestant actors using improv & scripted scenes, regardless of their group chemistry.

Noah Wyle is executive producing and reprising his role in a recurring capacity

A laugh track is enough to put me off. And The Librarians? Is that supposed to be the new Warehouse 13?

Will definitely check out Angie Tribeca (here's hoping they'll change the name).

Your comment about The Librarians, even taking your own reply into consideration, is just inane.

(Yes, I know it's based on movies that pre-date Warehouse 13, but still. Perfect timing, no?)
