On Tuesday, Sept. 28, La Brea has its series premiere. The drama is about a massive sinkhole that opens in Los Angeles. Those who fall into it find themselves in a dangerous primeval land, as the rest of the world tries to figure out what happened. 

The Blacklist kicks off Oct. 21, taking the slot that had been planned for Law & Order: For the Defense.
