Now that it is just barely summer, it’s time for the networks to try their best to get you excited for fall television. ABC wants you to get excited for their schedule, and their new shows, and I’ve got some previews for you, as well as some initial thoughts.
I have to tell you, ABC is looking more and more strange as time goes on, and the overall efforts of the network really have to make you wonder.

After remaining quiet all spring, ABC monopolized the attentions of the nation's TV critics on Thursday (May 8) with an evening full of big announcements. You can read about seven of the network's renewals here, as ABC extended its relationship with "Scandal," "Grey's Anatomy," "Modern Family" and more.

And you can also read about ABC's renewal of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and pickup for "Marvel's Agent Carter" here. But like the game show host says... That's not all! In addition to "Marvel's Agent Carter," ABC gave series orders to dramas "How To Get Away With Murder," "American Crime," "The Whispers" and "Forever." On the comedy side, "Black-ish," "Manhattan Love Story" and "Selfie" earned series orders. And on the musical comedy fairy tale front? »

Joel David Moore (Bones, Avatar), Barbara Eve Harris (The Amazing Spider-Man) and Donnie Keshawarz (The Wolf Of Wall Street) have landed series regular roles on ABC’s drama pilot Forever, written by Matthew Miller and directed by Brad Anderson. It centers on Dr. Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd), New York City’s star medical examiner. But what no one knows is Henry studies the dead for a reason – he is immortal. His investigative work with recently widowed Detective Jo Martinez (Alana de la Garza), a recovering alcoholic, and relationship with best friend Abe (Judd Hirsch) will peel back the layers of Henry’s colorful and long life. Moore, repped by ICM and Underground, will play Lucas, a young M.E. tech who’s a bit of a hipster and easily tongue-tied around pretty women. Harris, with Sdb Partners and Valeo Entertainment, will play Lt. Roark, an old-school NYC cop who is Martinez’s boss. »
