Dr. Bull is a pitbull of a jury consultant. Obviously he got his name base don his...resemblance to the dog?

Supposedly, he uses tech and human psychology to determine the way a jury swings. "Bull" is set to air at 9 p.m. Tuesdays this fall.

A(nother) series about a tech millionaire trying to use his money to be way more philanthropic than the rest of probably would be, "Pure Genius" is about one built a high-tech, futuristic hospital with his money.

'Emerald City,' NBC

The reimagining of "The Wizard of Oz" seems like "The Fall" meets "Once Upon a Time." Pictured is Florence Kasumba, who plays East (I guess the Wicked Witch part is implied).

Oliver Jackson (left) stars as Lucas, a character I definitely don't remember from "Wizard of Oz" so I have no idea why he's here. And on the right is Adria Arjona as Dorothy. Between the two is, I imagine, an updated Toto the K9 dog.

'Midnight, Texas,' NBC

In what sounds like a less-nude version of "True Blood" (oh, and set in Texas), "Midnight, Texas" stars Francois Arnaud (right) as Manfred.

Jason Lewis (you might recognize him as Smith from "Sex & the City" -- it's easier with his shirt off) as Joe Strong, who lives in the small strange town.

'Timeless,' NBC

From left to right: Malcolm Barrett as Rufus Carlin, Matt Lanter as Wyatt Logan, and Abigail Spencer as Lucy Preston. I think that's their time-travel device behind them? It's mighty big -- how do they hide that in the past?

Spencer ("Suits") plays a professor who's the only person they can turn to for help stopping time-terrorist Goran Visnjic. Feels a little "The Blacklist"-y for me, but we'll see.

Between Lucy and Wyatt creeps Paterson Joseph as Connor Mason. "Timeless" is set for 10 p.m. Mondays this fall on NBC.

'Son of Zorn,' FOX

Zorn (voiced by Jason Sudeikis) and Alangulon (Johnny Pemberton) are just bros, ya know? Chilling. In the driveway with a mountain bird. Which'll be dead by the end of the trailer.

"Son of Zorn" stars Cheryl Hines ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") as Zorn's ex-wife who seems none-too-pleased with Zorn's sudden new take on parenting. Tim Meadows (left, "Saturday Night Live") plays Hines' fiancee.
