Winter TV Upcoming  2015 11 new TV shows worthy of a season pass
It's the start of a new year, which also means an onslaught of new programming. It can be tough to navigate through all the trailers for new shows to know what you should set for your DVR, or better yet watch live. 

Newstechcafe has gone through the menu of upcoming TV options and compiled the winter must-see list. From comedies to dramas and super hero epics, there's something coming up that should appeal to everyone. 

'Marvel's Agent Carter,' Tuesday, Jan. 6, ABC 


Before there could be "The Avengers" or "Agents of SHIELD," the agency had to be created. Cue "Marvel's Agent Carter" -- the new Marvel TV series that depicts how Peggy Carter founded the organization after "Captain America: The First Avenger." This show isn't just for Marvel nerds though. Hayley Atwell gives a tour de force in the series and gives the comic book universe another healthy dose of lady power. 

'Empire,' Wednesday, Jan. 7, FOX 


You could only escape ads for this show by living under a rock, but don't let that deter you. It's created by Lee Daniels, helmer of "The Butler," and is wielding serious star power with Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson driving the vehicle. While TV has seen its influx of musical television since the inception of "Glee," "Empire's" gritty hip-hop take isn't something we've seen in recent seasons of television. 

'Togetherness,' Sunday, Jan. 11, HBO


The indie-spirited comedy genius of the Duplass brothers finally comes to the small screen in "Togetherness." The brothers have written and directed a handful of features and you've seen Mark pop up on popular sitcoms like
"The Mindy Project." However, "Togetherness" has the brothers' signature dry wit and dark humor. If you liked "Jeff, Who Lives at Home" or "Cyrus" then this is your cup of tea. 

'Man Seeking Woman,' Wednesday, Jan. 14, FXX


Jay Baruchel makes his TV return in the FXX comedy "Man Seeking Woman." While the single twentysomething guy looking for the perfect girl premise has been done, "Man Seeking Woman's" sharp tongue and unique style separate it from others of a similar genre. For example, in the above promo Baruchel literally hands his heart to woman for her to take a sample bite and then turn him down. The visual depiction of heartbreak is both surprisingly funny but universally understandable. 

'12 Monkeys,' Friday, Jan. 16, SyFy


"12 Monkeys" is part of a renaissance in SyFy programming. The TV show is a remake of the 1995 film starring Bruce Willis. Even though the film was 20 years ago, recent Ebola outbreaks and disease paranoia have set "12 Monkeys" up to premiere at just the right time. "Nikita" writers Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett are running the show this time and it's a thriller no sci-fi fan will want to miss. 

'Fresh Off the Boat,' Wednesday, Feb. 4, ABC


ABC isn't afraid to play the diversity card, and that's a really awesome thing when they are backing comedies like "Fresh Off the Boat." The series is loosely based off chef Eddie Huang's personal life and memoir of the same title about an 11-year old Asian-American hip hop addict whose family ships him from Washington D.C. to the very white suburbs of Orlando, Fla. In the same vein of "Everybody Hates Chris," "Fresh Off the Boat" is a bold comedy that explains just how alienating it is to be the minority while including everyone in on the joke. 

'Better Call Saul,' Sunday, Feb. 8, AMC


Honestly, the fact that it's a "Breaking Bad" prequel and Vince Gilligan is once again at the helm is enough to make this a must see. If "Breaking Bad" couldn't go on forever, at least we can see where it all began. Te prequel series that introduces a lot of Walter White's world long before he would become part of it. How exactly did Saul become the shifty lawyer fans came to love on "Breaking Bad"? This is the chance to find out, and for those who never watched the predecessor series to get in on the ground floor. 

'The Odd Couple,' Thursday, Feb. 19, CBS

Matthew Perry's post- "Friends" sitcom career has been bumpy, in large part because audiences have a hard time not seeing him as Chandler Bing. Hopefully, by taking on another iconic part with Oscar Madison, TV audiences will finally give him the chance he deserves to show his non-Bing comedic chops. Plus, he's got Thomas Lennon at his side as Felix which guarantees laugh out loud awkward moments. 

'Battle Creek,' Sunday, March 1, CBS

Love Vince Gilligan but don't want more "Breaking Bad" universe? "Battle Creek" is where you need to go. The cop drama stars Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters as polar opposite personality cops that make an unlikely perfect duo to clean up the streets of Battle Creek, Mich. The banter between Duhamel and Winters is bound to be water cooler quote worthy while Gilligan promises gritty crime and heightened drama. 

'The Last Man on Earth,' Sunday, March 1, FOX

There's a saying "Even if you were the last man on Earth..." Well, that's where Will Forte's new dark comedy comes in. In 2022 a cataclysm wipes out most of the planet's population, save for Phil Miller (Forte), who must now travel across the barren wastelands of former civilization in hopes of finding other survivors. Forte is joined by comedy heavyweight Kristen Schaal and "Mad Men's" January Jones, which makes mankind's next chapter very intriguing.

'American Crime,' Thursday, March 5, ABC 


Coming in at the tail end of the season is one of the most anticipated new shows of the year. "American Crime," created by "12 Years a Slave" scribe John Ridley, follows a harrowing crime and the trial that follows. It's a gripping suspense story that illuminates racial tensions within the community where the attack takes place. The drama clearly has the talent behind it -- Timothy Hutton, Felicity Huffman and Benito Martinez head the cast -- and with the recent events in Ferguson and New York, sets itself up to be the conversation piece of the winter TV season.
