ABC 2016-2017 TV show trailers

The upfronts keep on coming this week, and yesterday brought the unveiling of the new series coming to ABC for the 2016-2017 television season. Since ABC canceled a bunch of shows, including Agent Carter and Marvel’s Most Wanted, we’re interested to see what the network will be trying out this fall to find a new audience.

The new line-up of dramas at ABC includes the return of Agent Carter‘s Hayley Atwell to television in Conviction, Kiefer Sutherland becoming the president in Designated Survivor, and H.G. Wells chasing Jack the Ripper through modern day New York City in Time After Time. On the comedy side, we have some new shows featuring Jenna Elfman, Minnie Driver and Katy Mixon. We recently previewed a few short teasers for some of ABC’s new offerings, but today we have longer, meatier trailers.

By now you’ve surely heard that ABC has decided not to move forward with Marvel’s Most Wanted, and that it’s decided it doesn’t want more Agent Carter or The Muppets either. So what does the network want? If they’re not going to give us more of Hayley Atwell kicking ass and taking names Peggy Carter, what do they plan to serve us next season instead?

Well, for starters, Hayley Atwell kicking ass and taking names as a different Carter — Carter Morrison, the protagonist of a new legal drama called Conviction. There’s also Downward Dog, starring Fargo‘s Allison Tolman, and Still Star-Crossed, a Romeo and Juliet sequel for all you ShondaLand faithful out there. See brand-new promos for all of those, plus Imaginary MaryNotoriousSpeechless, and Time After TimeRead More »

Romeo and Juliet

Earlier this week we learned Cruel Intentions, the greatest love story of our time, was getting a completely unnecessary-sounding TV sequel. Now Romeo and Juliet, the greatest love story of someone else’s time, is following suit. ABC has put into development Still Star-Crossed, based on a 2013 novel that picks up after the events of William Shakespeare‘s teen romance classic.

Which sounds like a terrible idea, given that most of the characters you care about are dead after the events of Romeo and Juliet (400-year-old spoiler alert), but Still Star-Crossed one has one big thing going for it: It’s coming out of ShondaLand, the same watercooler drama factory that gave us Grey’s AnatomyScandal, and How to Get Away With Murder.
