ABC is fully committing to being the network that delivers campy fairy tale shows. And now they're raised the bar, because their latest fairy tale show has the cast SINGING. Check out ABC's new scifi and supernatural TV line-up.
As Upfronts rolls on and each TV channel trots out their latest wares the biggest genre bomb (thus far) goes to ABC for unrolling a whole collection of new scifi and supernatural media, in addition to renewing Once Upon a Time and Agents of SHIELD, as we mentioned earlier.. Behold:
Alan Menken (who is a musical god) will be making more fairy tale songs for this very strange Once Upon A Time-esque drama/comedy. Timothy Omundson (Lassie from Psych) plays the evil King Richard, so it has that going for it. Also that might mean we'll get to hear him sing, which is cool.
Screenwriter/executive producer Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love) teams up with Broadway and Hollywood award-winning musical team—composer Alan Menken for a musical comedy fairytale of epic proportions. Once upon a time, the dashing hero, Galavant (Joshua Sasse) lost the love of his life, Madalena (Mallory Jansen), to the evil King Richard (Timothy Omundson). Now, our fallen hero is ready to take revenge and restore his "happily ever after." But it won't be without a few twists and turns along the way. It stars Joshua Sasse as Galavant, Timothy Omundson as King Richard, Vinnie Jones as Gareth, Mallory Jansen as Madalena, Karen David as Isabella and Luke Youngblood as Sid.
This new drama series stars Lily Rabe and aliens. So we're in. Completely and totally in.
Aliens have invaded Earth by using our most unlikely resource to achieve world domination—our children. As the kids unwittingly help these unseen enemies, the clock counts down in this suspenseful race to save humanity. It stars Lily Rabe as Claire Bennigan, Barry Sloane as Wes Lawrence, Milo Ventimiglia as John Doe/Drew Bennigan, Derek Webster as Jessup Rollins, Brianna Brown as Lena Lawrence, Catalina Denis as Dr. Maria Martinez, Kylie Rogers as Minx Lawrence and Kyle Harrison Breitkopf as Henry.
This is the new supernatural series we're just not sure about yet. An immortal who solves crimes? Maybe.
Doctor Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd), New York City's star medical examiner, has a secret. He doesn't just study the dead to solve criminal cases, he does it to solve the mystery that has eluded him for 200 years—the answer to his own inexplicable immortality. This long life has given Henry remarkable observation skills which impresses his new partner Detective Jo Martinez (Alana De La Garza). Each week, a new case and their budding friendship will reveal layers of Henry's long and colorful past. Only his best friend and confidant, Abe (Judd Hirsch) knows Henry's secret.
