It's fall, and network TV is serving up a new batch of shows they hope will be 'the next big thing'. But I'm only watching one premiering next month on FOX.

Fall TV season is my favorite time of year. I play a little game with myself. I like to predict which of the new network offerings will get cancelled, and how long they'll last before they do.

But the ONE series I'm banking on is called Almost Family. It stars Brittany Snow (Pitch Perfect), Emily Osment (Hannah Montana), and Megalyn Ann Echikunwoke (The Following; House of Lies), who find out they're sisters because they're fertility doctor dad (Timothy Hutton) impregnated many of his own patients as a sperm donor.

I think the plot is unique. Snow's character Julia believed her whole life she was an only child, now she's involved in a scandal, and that will be interesting to watch play out. And then Osment and Tunie have very different backgrounds, so that dynamic between all three women as they try and get to know each other looks promising.

It's just not another hospital, crime, or first responder drama. We have ENOUGH of those. So that's why I find myself gravitating to Almost Family. I keep a VERY HEAVY TV viewing schedule, so I'm choosy about which new series I bring into the fold. I'm hoping this one doesn't disappoint!

The series debut of Almost Family is Wednesday, October 2nd on FOX.
