New comedies, competitions and drama: FOX announces 2021-2022 primetime lineup

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and we’re not talking about the holidays. 

FOX has announced its newest primetime lineup for 2021-2022 with some titillating new shows, returning beloved throwdowns and nail-biting TV drama. 

Joining the lineup will be the uplifting dramedy, "The Big Leap," starring Scott Foley and Piper Perabo. "The Big Leap" is about a "group of diverse, down-on-their-luck characters attempting to change their lives by participating in a potentially life-ruining reality dance show that builds to a live production of ‘Swan Lake,’ FOX said. 

"The Big Leap" will make its debut in the fall.
