NEW YORK (CBS) – America's most-watched network has unveiled its 2015-2016 line-up, and there's a little something for everybody with the announcement of seven new shows and 22 returning series.
CBS will premiere a new roster of dramas in the fall, including the heart-pounding medical series "Code Black," which follows staff at the busiest, most notorious ER in the nation.
The network will also premiere the TV adaptation of action film "Limitless," which is being produced by Bradley Cooper and follows a man who discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug NZT and is coerced by the FBI to help solve crimes.

And then there's DC Comics' highly-anticipated story of "Supergirl" starring Melissa Benoist, which features Superman's younger cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities.
Two other dramas are also set to premiere later on in the 2015-2016 season. "Rush Hour," based on the film franchise will premiere along with "Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders," a "Criminal Minds" spin-off about the International Division of the FBI that stars Gary Sinise.
But CBS is also looking to lighten the mood a bit with new comedies "Angel From Hell," which follows Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Jane Lynch as a loud, colorful and inappropriate woman who claims to be a guardian angel, and "Life in Pieces," a cheeky series about a family's hilarious and beautiful milestones.
