Few things are more disheartening and frustrating to fans of series as when their scheduling is wonky. You know, three weeks on, two weeks off. Shows lose momentum and the less committed fans lose interest and everyone gets scared that the show will get canceled.
Happily, ABC has announced its plans to run at least some of its shows’ seasons with few to no interruptions, before and after the winter break, and that’s good news (and slightly bad news) for us.
It affects Once Upon a Time and new series Resurrection. Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is of course not affected since it is, at least currently, considered to be a limited, 13-episode series.
The bad news part of the decision is that we’ll be waiting a bit before we’ll see the return and the premiere. Both shows will air on Sunday, March 9, with the midseason »

As part of an alleged plan to virtually eliminate repeats at midseason, ABC has announced spring plans for "Resurrection" and "The Quest." "Resurrection," which stars Omar Epps, Devin Kelley, Frances Fisher and Kurtwood Smith, will air on Sunday nights at 10 p.m. starting on March 9. The mysterious drama will take the place of "Betrayal" after that series completes its run. ABC is viewing both "Resurrection" and "Betrayal" as limited series. The alternative series "The Quest" will have a two-hour premiere on Thursday, January 2 from 8 to 10 p.m. It will subsequent settle into the "Once Upon a »

When ABC gave its “Upfront” presentation and announced its 2013-14 schedule two weeks ago, I told you about the return of Once Upon a Time and The Neighbors, and about upcoming series Once Upon a Time in Wonderland and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
At the time I didn’t include new series Resurrection because, frankly, the trailer seemed a little too Touched By an Angel to be something we’d cover. Now that I’ve screened the pilot, I may have been premature. May have been. As with Touch and Awake and A Gifted Man before it, I’ve decided to give this one the benefit of the doubt. I’m hoping it will be more like Awake than like the other two; we’ll see. I really like the pilot, though, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what comes next.
Here’s the synopsis and the trailer. »

At ABC‘s upfront, there were a few things that the network wanted to make sure you knew. 1) They are really impressed with the idea that people are going to watch Rebel Wilson do just about anything, and 2) There isn’t anything they’re happier about than bringing you more episodes of television created by Shonda Rhimes.
On these notes, the network would love for you to know that more Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal are coming your way. These, ABC would like to impress upon you (as advertisers) are really good shows. Because… hellllooo… so many people watch them that we’re bringing them back. But wait, don’t think that you’re as excited as you can get yet, because if those are your favorite shows, then we have a new one for you to fall in love with, Betrayal.
Also on the agenda, and actually looking like they might be interesting, »

Resurrection Trailer. ABC‘s Resurrection (2013) TV show trailer stars Omar Epps, Matt Craven, Devin Kelley, Frances Fisher, and Kurtwood Smith. Resurrection‘s plot synopsis: “The people of Arcadia, Missouri are forever changed when their deceased loved ones suddenly start to return.

An 8-year-old boy turns up, seemingly out of nowhere, in a field in China. An immigration agent learns where the boy lives and brings him home to his parents -- who believe their son died more than 30 years ago.
Yet here he is, looking just the same as he did the last day he was alive.
That's the jumping-off point for ABC's new series "Resurrection." The drama stars Omar Epps ("House") as the immigration agent, Martin Bellamy, and Kurtwood Smith ("That '70s Show") and Frances Fisher ("Eureka," "Titanic") as Harold and Lucille Garland, the parents of the suddenly alive again Jacob (Landon Gimenez). The Garlands won't be the only residents of their Missouri town to have this kind of experience -- other people's loved ones soon start to return as well.
As promised earlier today, ABC has released the official trailer for its upcoming new series "Resurrection," and we have a look at it for you right here. Again, no premiere date has been announced, but we expect more info soon.
"Resurrection" is expected to be a limited series, airing just 12 to 13 episodes per season.
The people of Arcadia, Missouri, are forever changed when their deceased loved ones suddenly start to return. An 8-year-old American boy (Landon Gimenez) wakes up alone in a rice paddy in a rural Chinese province with no idea how he got there.

The home he claims as his own is occupied by an elderly couple, Harold (Kurtwood Smith) and Lucille Garland (Frances Fisher), who lost their son, »
