ABC has released trailers for their fall lineup!

As you know, several ABC shows were axed this past month including Suburgatory, Trophy Wife, Betrayal, Killer Women, Mixology, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, Mind Games, Back in the Game, The Assets, Lucky 7, and Super Fun Night. It’s a sad day for fans of those shows, but ABC has released trailers for their replacements.

ABC

Starting Tuesdays at the 8pm slot, Doctor Who‘s Karen Gillan and Star Trek‘s John Cho stars in a contemporary version of My Fair Lady called Selfie. Gillan plays a narcissistic social media princess who gets her world turned upside down with an embarrassing photo. She needs to change her image with the help of Cho’s character.

The 8:30pm slot belongs to Manhattan Love Story, a love story about two strangers (Jake McDorman and Analeigh Tipton) set up on a blind date and being able to read their thoughts the entire time they are dating.

The 10pm slot goes to Ioan Gruffudd’s Forever. He plays the Sherlock of medical examiners who can never die. He cannot die and solves mysteries with the police. Yeah, pretty much.

On Wednesdays at 9:30pm , joining the huge Wednesday night lineup of The Middle, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, is Black-ish. It is about a African-American family in a rich, affluent community that are slowly losing their “culture”. It has Anthony Anderson and Lawrence Fishburne. Enough said.

 

Joining the serious dramas of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal on Thursday nights is the new legal thriller How to Get Away with Murder. Starring Academy Award nominee Viola Davis as a law professor teaching her students how to get away with murder in the courtroom.

 

Fridays will consist of one new comedy at 8:30pm called Cristela starring comedian Cristela Alonzo about her Mexican-American family. She plays a big time lawyer trying to make it big while holding onto her family and their traditions.  It reminds me of the female version of the George Lopez show.

 

The other shows that will be added to the mid-season lineup include:

Secrets and Lies – Starring Ryan Phillippe as Ben Garner who is accused of murdering his neighbor’s son in the woods. His world is turned upside down when the town suspects him as the murderer. Detective Andrea Cornell (played by Juliette Lewis) is determined to find out the truth.

 

Galavant – A fairytale musical comedy about a famous knight who lost his one true love to a rich king and now must find his own Happily Ever After. Composed by award-winning composer Alan Menken, Galavant has hilarious musical numbers at epic proportions.

 

The Whispers – Aliens have invaded Earth using children to take over the world. Kids are willing to help the aliens, without knowing the consequences of their actions. The government must fight to save humanity from these “imaginary friends”.

American Crime – A brutal crime has caused a race warm shocking en entire community. We see the point of view from all the victims and people affected by the crime. It’s an intense story dealing with race in society.

 

Fresh Off The Boat  – A refreshing comedy about Asian American celebrity chef Eddie Huang’s life growing up in the 90s with Taiwanese immigrant parents pursing the American dream. Many Asian Americans can relate to these characters. I know I do.
