ABC is venturing into the land of magical fantasy for its upcoming series The Quest.
Premiering on Thursday, July 31 (8/7c), The Quest drops 12 contestants into an imaginative realm full of ogres, dragons and lords. Through the use of animatronics, prosthetics and special effects, each of the contestants will fight to be the hero who saves good from evil and brings peace among chaos.

Dancing with the Stars has been an ABC staple since 2005, but after 16 seasons ABC felt it was time for a change. The network announced Tuesday that the dance competition will be reduced to a two-hour episode one night a week in the fall. This isn't proof of a loss of faith in the series, but an attempt to instill fresh energy, ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee explained during a conference call with reporters.
