ABC Upfronts- Fall 2014

Published

on


ABC is totally revamping in order to get back to number one! The network came in third-place this in ratings this season. So what will do the trick? Obviously adding in one more Shonda Rhimes to the Thursday lineup. ABC moved up the Grey’s time-slot to 8pm, Scandal to 9pm leaving the third slot open for the new drama, How To Get Away With Murder. The legal thriller is set in law school with Viola Davis playing a professor. Sounds promising for sure.

While the CW protects itself with a slew of supernatural/comic book shows, ABC is going in a multiethnical direction, which they explained was “the changing face of America.”

“We set out to reflect America, and we ended up unleashing a whole new wave of creativity,” said Paul Lee ABC Entertainment Group President.

“Quite simply, least-objectionable programming is dead. If it’s passion that defines our brand, this year we decided to turn up the heat,” he added.

Cristela and Black-ish join the lineup. Black-ish stars Laurence Fishbourne and focuses on a middle class African American family. Cristela is about a Mexican woman torn between her ambitions to be a lawyer and her traditional family values. Additionally, the network picked up Fresh Off the Boat a comedy about Asian American, which will be held for midseason.

The network is adding a total of six new series to its fall schedule and another six for the midseason.

“Selfie,” 7 p.m. Tuesday – A social-media queen named Eliza (Gillan) feels friendless, until a marketing expert named Henry (played by John Cho) steps in to spiff up her brand. A comedy loosely based on “My Fair Lady,” says an ABC news release.

“Manhattan Love Story,” 7:30 p.m. Tuesday – Analeigh Tipton (“Hung”) and Jake McDorman (“Shameless”) star in a romantic comedy.

“Forever,” 9 p.m. Tuesday – A New York City medical examiner played by Ioan Gruffudd (“Glee”) seeks an answer to his life’s greatest mystery — his own apparent immortality. A drama.

“Black-ish,” 8:30 p.m. Wednesday – Laurence Fishburne (“Hannibal,” “CSI”) plays father to a suburban couple (Anderson, Ross) dealing with identity issues. A comedy.

How to Get Away With Murder,” 9 p.m. Thursday – Viola Davis (“The Help,” “United States of Tara”) stars as a law professor. The legal thriller gives superproducer Rhimes all three drama time slots on the night. (Said Lee: “Nobody does empowered women like Shonda Rhimes.”)

“Cristela,” 7:30 p.m. Friday – Cristela Alonzo (“Mind of Mencia”) stars as an ambitious law student trying to navigate her family’s traditional values.

Coming at midseason: “American Crime,” “Fresh Off the Boat,” “Galavant,” “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” “Secrets and Lies,” “The Whispers.”

'Cruel Summer' Renewed for a Second Season at Freeform Ahead of Finale

Cruel Summer may be airing its season finale tonight, but fans can already look forward to more spine-tingling thrills. 

Freeform has picked up the psychological drama for a second season, according to TVLine

“Renewing Cruel Summer for a Season 2 was an easy decision,” Freeform President Tara Duncan said.

“It’s the biggest series debut in Freeform’s history and the audience response has been overwhelmingly positive. [Executive producers] Jessica [Biel], Michelle [Purple] and [showrunner] Tia [Napolitano] did a phenomenal job telling an addictive story that’s tapped into the cultural zeitgeist. I’m excited to see where they take the series next,” she added.

Napolitano also noted: “Collaborating with Iron Ocean, our dedicated crew, charismatic cast, and our partners at Freeform and eOne has been the best first showrunning experience I could ask for. I am beyond grateful and excited by the amazing fan response to our show! Continuing to bottle Cruel Summer magic for a Season 2 is an absolute dream come true.”

The freshman drama stars Olivia Holt (Kate Wallis) and Chiara Aurelia (Jeanette Turner) whose worlds collide when Kate goes missing and later accuses Jeanette of knowing who kept her captive and not telling the police. Jeanette is adamant that she never saw Kate in captivity. The story is told over three timeliness in 1993, 1994, and 1995. 

The mystery is set to be resolved in tonight’s finale.

Per Deadline, Biel revealed that the mystery could return with a new story and the same characters or feature a new cast of characters. 

You can recap all of the Cruel Summer reviews below!

2021-2022 TV Schedule: Find Out Which Shows Have Been Canceled or Renewed

We’re entering the season of refreshing the page to see if your favorite shows have been renewed for the upcoming 2021-2022 TV season.

Since COVID-19 affected production on many shows and delayed their premieres, the criteria for what gets the green light and what ends up on the chopping block has become more stringent this go-around.

As usual, The CW gave an early renewal for most of their shows including Nancy Drew, Riverdale, Walker, Batwoman, and more. 

In a shocking twist, Grey’s Anatomy has been renewed for season 18 along with sibling series Station 19. 

Unfortunately, not every show shared the same fate as Prodigal Son on FOX was given the ax after two seasons.
