"Empire" is heading for new territory.

Fox unveiled its fall TV schedule today, and the biggest headline is the hit music drama's move to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays, one hour earlier than its original timeslot. That allows Fox to use it as a lead-in and boost for other shows. "Star" will air after it in the fall.

The network is adding three new series, including the "X-Men" show "The Gifted," which follows a family with mutant teens on the run from the nefarious forces. Seth MacFarlane's "The Orville" is a live-action dramedy set on a spaceship 400 years in the future. And "Ghosted" stars Craig Robinson and Adam Scott as a skeptic and true believer investigating paranormal activity (sounds like a comedic version of "The X-Files").
