Each fall the networks debut their line ups, which invariably contain new shows. After months of speculation the networks have unveiled their line ups. This fall there are a whole slew of new shows that people are anticipating. The new shows starting this fall contain some familiar faces like Jim Caviezel, Christina Ricci, Kat Dennings, and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Some will be hits, some will be flops and some will get cancelled quickly. That’s part of the fun of it all.

Here is a list of 10 of the most anticipated fall 2011 shows in no particular order:

1) Terra Nova: network: Fox. A prehistoric-era time travel adventure starring Jason O’Mara that comes from the mind of Steven Spielberg. Even with Spielberg behind it this is a risky proposition as it finds itself in a time slot opposite the ratings juggernaut Dancing With the Stars.

2) The Playboy Club: network: NBC. A peek into the lives, loves and wardrobes of the Bunnies working at Hugh Hefner’s first Playboy Club. Set in the 1960s in Chicago and once you step inside of the club you can be whomever you want to be. The Bunnies are like stars.  The series stars Amber Heard, Eddie Cibrian and Laura Benanti.

3) Pan Am: network: ABC. This one could be fun, sexy and smart. Cool a la Mad Men. Take off with this 1960s era drama starring Christina Ricci. Pan Am was once considered the most glamorous way to fly.  The lives of the flight attendants and pilots is explored.

4) A Gifted Man: network: CBS. A doctor played by Patrick Wilson who can see his dead ex-wife played by Jennifer Ehle. Wilson is Michael Holt, an ultra competitive surgeon, who is being taught about the afterlife and what it all means by his dead ex-wife. Jonathan Demme directed the pilot.  Filled with subtle emotions.

5) Ringer: network: The CW. Buffy is back on television! Sarah Michelle Gellar is a recovering addict who takes on her twin sister’s identity. A combination of a night time soap and a Brian De Palma movie. Very intriguing.

6) Person of Interest: Network: CBS. A crime thriller starring James Caviezel, Lost’s Michael Emerson and executive produced by J.J. Abrams. Concept is an ex-CIA hitman and a scientist who work together to stop crimes before they happen.

7) The X Factor: network: Fox. Simon Cowell brings back the mean factor and Paula Abdul is the nice in his newish (already a hit in England) talent show.

8) Hart of Dixie: Network: The CW. Formerly one of the stars of The O.C., Rachel Bilson teams up once again with that show’s creator Josh Schwartz for a doctor drama. Zoe Hart is a young doctor from New York who graduated at the top of her class and plans to follow in her father’s footsteps in becoming a cardio-thoracic surgeon. That does not work out so she has to accept the offer of a stranger to work at a small practice in Alabama.

9) 2 Broke Girls: Network: CBS. Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs are the 2 girls. They are two waitresses saving money to start a cupcake business. One of the girls is wealthy and sheltered while the other is working-class and worldly. The pilot was co-written by Michael Patrick King of Sex and the City fame. Really has the potential of being sharp-witted.

10) Charlie’s Angels: Network: ABC. A reboot of the original series is set in Miami and is filled with guns, glamour and beautiful women. Starring Minka Kelly, Dina Meyer and Annie Ilonzeh in the iconic roles. These are three women with pasts. The former Miami police officer, well-to-do thief and street racer are offered the chance at redemption by an anonymous millionaire named Charlie Townsend by solving crimes. Charlie is voiced by Robert Wagner.
