ABC has renewed 11 series, including vet Grey's Anatomy, which will enter its 10th season, and freshman series Nashville. However, the network also canceled Happy Endings, Body of Proof, Red Widow, Malibu Country and How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life).
Reba McEntire, Lily Tomlin
If Malibu Country returns for a second season, it will have to be without showrunner Nastaran Dibai.
As first reported by Entertainment Weekly, Dibai is leaving the series, TVGuide.com confirms. The comedy, starring Reba McEntire and Lily Tomlin, finished its first season in March, and hasn't been picked up yet.

When a terrific series is truly on its game, some episodes can feel like absolute perfection. Happened Tuesday with a thrillingly entertaining and pivotal episode of FX's Justified, and the same feeling applies to Sunday's sensational The Good Wife (9/8c, CBS). It has everything: sex, suspense, surprise, humor, emotion — and as usual with this sophisticated standard-bearer for network drama, a dazzling array of guest performances.

ABC is getting into business with Steven Spielberg.
The network has ordered a drama pilot and a comedy pilot from the blockbuster director's studio Amblin TV.
Lucky 7 follows seven employees of a Queens service station whose lives are changed in many unpredictable ways when they win a lottery jackpot. (Maybe they played the lucky Lost numbers?) The pilot was written by David Zabel (ER) and Jason Richman (Detroit 1-8-7).

For ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee, the Alphabet network's fall schedule was a bit of a mixed bag.
"We have a lot to shout about and we also have a lot to do," Lee told reporters at the Television Critics Association winter TV previews on Thursday. The network, which finished 2012 in third place behind NBC and Fox, struggled to launch new shows -- new dramas Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue were canceled; Nashville is solid, though Lee wishes he had more viewers in the 35-to-49 demographic — and saw previous ratings juggernaut Dancing with the Stars slide to new lows.

Music is just about everywhere on TV these days — except in most shows' opening credits. The glory days of the TV title song may be long gone, but a few new series are keeping the theme alive.
Most notably, ABC's comedy Malibu Country boasts a traditional opening tune. When it came time to put the show's title credits together, it made perfect sense to ask star Reba McEntire to choose the song. McEntire — who also performed the opening theme to her last sitcom, Reba ("I'm a Survivor") — came back with "Goodbye Looks Good on Me," written by Kellys Collins, Juliana Cole and Jeff Smith.
Here are the titles and talent behind some of this fall's new TV opening themes.
ABC has ordered five additional episodes each of Malibu Country and Last Man Standing, the network announced Wednesday.
