On top of all the movie trailers we will see during the Super Bowl, there are going to be a good amount of TV series promos as well.
Fox is going to give us our first look at Keifer Sutherland's 24: Live Another Day limited series, which is set to air on May 5th. Then we will see a promo for Cosmos, a science miniseries that explores the universe. Other spots will include American Idol, The Following, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and New Girl.
Here's what Variety had to say,
It’s likely the promos – slated to run before and during the gridiron classic – will be of a higher caliber than the norm. Sure, the spots will likely tell viewers when the shows are slated to run. Chances are, however, they’ll have a little something extra. In the case of “24: Live Another Day,” for example, Fox went all out, setting up a special promo shoot in London, the setting for the miniseries, a few days before actual production began on the series itself – meaning the Super Bowl promos for the show will contain the first “24” action filmed since the original series wrapped in 2010.
When it comes to 24, the network will "run a series of ten-second vignettes sprinkled across the evening that will lead to what the network bills as a 'show-stopping' 45-second promo."
As for what we can expect to see, they say that it will feature the reunion of Sutherland’s Jack Bauer and Mary Lynn Rajskub’s Chloe O’Brian. "The promos will feature a hardened look for the O’Brian character, best remembered as a computer nerd."
I'm such a huge fan of 24, and I'm sure Fox is going to go all out to get us excited for Jack's highly anticipated return.
