After its upfront presentation Monday afternoon, Fox released trailers for its fall and midseason shows — here’s the lineup.

“Almost Human” (Mondays at 8): This J.J. Abrams buddy cop show looks at what happens when the Los Angeles Police Department partners its officers with androids.

“Sleepy Hollow” (Mondays at 9):Action adventure series in which Ichabod Crane has been pulled two and a half centuries through time to find that the world is on the brink of destruction, and teams with a contemporary cop to investigate a mystery.

“Dads” (Tuesdays at 8): Seth MacFarlane has a live action series, in which Seth Green and Gionvanni Ribisi play two successful 30-something guys whose dads move in with them.

“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (Tuesdays at 8:30): Comedy stars Andy Samberg as a slacker-but-brilliant detective who never fails to frustrate his stern, by-the-book boss, played by Andre Braugher.

“Enlisted” (Fridays at 9:30): Three brothers — played by Geoff Stults, Chris Lowell and Parker Young — work together at a small Army base in Florida, and apparently hilarity ensues.


“Rake” (Thursdays at 9):. “House”-esque series in which Greg Kinnear stars as a brilliant, charming, self-destructive criminal defense lawyer.


“Us & Them”: Based on popular UK series “Gavin & Stacey,” Jason Ritter and Alexis Bledel play a couple who are both surrounded in their daily lives by a “screwed-up circus of people.”

“Surviving Jack”: From Justin Halperin (creator of the “$#*! My Dad Says” Twitter feed and accompanying failed sitcom), stars Christopher Meloni as “a man becoming a dad, as his son is becoming a man, in a time before ‘coming of age’ was something you could Google.”

“Gang Related”: A gang member (Terry O’Quinn) goes undercover as a member of the San Francisco Police Department.
