Here's how CBS describes the project; the trailer follows below.
For starters, Candace Bergen will trade in her "FYI" newsmagazine show and will host a morning cable news show called "Murphy in the Morning".
Murphy Brown will air Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. on CBS 6.
MURPHY BROWN stars Candice Bergen as Murphy Brown, Faith Ford as Corky Sherwood, Joe Regalbuto as Frank Fontana, Grant Shaud as Miles Silverberg, Jake McDorman as Avery, Tyne Daly as Phyllis and Nik Dodani as Pat Patel.
CBS will also feature a modern take on a old classic as Magnum P.I. debuts this fall at 9pm Eastern Time on Monday nights. Jay Hernandez will take over the starring role from Tom Selleck. A charming rogue, an American hero and a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan, Magnum has Juliet Higgins and her Dobermans to keep him in line, as well as his trusted buddies and fellow POW survivors TC and Rick when he needs back-up on a job. Stephen Hill plays TC.
The network is adding remakes of 1980s series "Murphy Brown" and "Magnum, P.I." to a line-up that already includes blasts-from-the-past "Hawaii Five-0" and "MacGyver".
Rachael DelTondo Photos: Full Story & Must-See Details
Though known in local media outlets for her dispute with her wedding dress designer, Rachael DelTondo was once a teacher. No charges were brought against DelTondo over the incident, and police drove the teen home that evening.
Back in 1996 when he ran CBS' entertainment division, Leslie Moonves started an annual breakfast meeting with reporters on the day CBS presented its fall schedule to advertisers.
And remember that CBS passed on a reboot of "Cagney and Lacey" with Sarah Drew and Michelle Hurd.
The CBS enthusiasm for a "Murphy Brown" redux undoubtedly was fueled by the success of comedy revivals at ABC ("Roseanne") and NBC ("Will & Grace"). Bergen also serves as an executive producer.
On Sunday, after 60 Minutes, a new drama, God Friended Me, will star Brandon Micheal Hall (The Mayor) as an atheist who accepts a friend request from a social-media account calling itself God, an act that leads to his helping people in need.
The final new shows that made the cut for the fall lineup are dramas Federal Bureau of Investigation and God Friended Me. FBI, set in the bureau's NY office, stars Missy Peregrym (Rookie Blue), Zeeko Zaki (Valor), Jeremy Sisto (Law & Order), and Ebonée Noel (Still Star-Crossed). The show is being produced by Emmy Award victor Dick Wolf and the team behind the "Law & Order" franchise.
