For fall, the studio has one new scheduled comedy, Fox show Partners. MCA also is distributing new CBS drama American Gothic.
On the syndication side, MCA TV will follow up hit Hercules this fall with a spin-off, Xena: Warrior Princess. Ironically, the warrior princess vanquished another MCA TV first-run show, Vanishing Son, to gain its Hercules adjacencies. Several talk shows are in development, including one from Studs creator Stephen Chao.
