ABC TV Trailers: Rebel Wilson’s ‘Super Fun Night’, Tricia Helfer’s ‘Killer Women’, ‘Once Upon a Time in Wonderland’, and More
Posted on Tuesday, May 14th, 2013 by Angie Han
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is without a doubt ABC’s highest-profile new series, but of course it’s not the only one on the 2013-2014 schedule. The network has just revealed promos for eleven other new titles, including Mixology from the Hangover writers, Super Fun Night with Rebel Wilson, Killer Women starring Tricia Helfer, and the Once Upon a Time spinoff Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. Watch ‘em all after the jump.
The Wonder Years-esque The Goldbergs comes stars Sean Giambrone as a dorky 11-year-old documenting the lives of his family (including parents Jeff Garlin and Wendi McLendon-Covey) with his video camera.
The Goldbergs will air on Tuesdays at 9 PM, right after Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It’ll be followed by Trophy Wife, the trailer for which you can see below. Malin Akerman leads as a “reformed party girl” who marries a man (Bradley Whitford) with two ex-wives and three kids.
Rounding out the Tuesday evening schedule at 10 will be the new drama Lucky 7, about a group of gas station employees in Astoria, Queens who win the lottery.
Moving on to Wednesdays, Back in the Game will be sandwiched between returning comedies The Middle and Modern Family at 8:30 PM. Maggie Lawson plays a former softball player who volunteers to coach her son’s ragtag Little League team. James Caan plays her dad.
The Wilson-starring Super Fun Night, about a trio of friends who try to have “super fun” every Friday night, will close out the two-hour comedy block at 9:30 PM.
Thursday brings the new Once Upon a Time spinoff Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, which I probably don’t need to explain. The fantasy-drama will air at 8 PM.
The new Sunday evening (10 PM) soap Betrayal centers on a married woman who strikes up an affair with a married man, only to find out that her lover is on the opposite side of a murder trial as her husband. Drama!
ABC also offered peeks at a bunch of shows that won’t premiere until midseason, like Mixology. Hailing from Hangover writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the comedy follows ten attractive young people looking for love and/or sex over the course of one evening at a hip bar in Manhattan.
Battlestar Galactica‘s Helfer will return to television at some point in midseason with Killer Women, in which she plays a Texas Ranger. The law enforcement kind, not the baseball kind.
Kyle Killen, who struck out at Fox in 2010 with Lone Star and NBC in 2012 with Awake, brings his talents to ABC next season for Mind Games. This one looks a little lighter and less high-concept than his other acclaimed but short-lived series did, which is probably for the best. Christian Slater and Steve Zahn star as brothers who use psychological manipulation to solve their clients’ problems.
The sci-fi-tinged Resurrection sees a Missouri town changed when an 8-year-old boy believed to be dead suddenly reappears three decades later — and still 8 years old.
Mind Games looks pretty entertaining, so hopefully Killen will have some better luck this season. I’ll also be checking out The Goldbergs and Super Fun Night, even though I didn’t love the trailers for either, just because I like the talent involved. Which ones will you be tuning into next season?
