It was a busy day for ABC!
The network announced on Thursday that it has added three comedies and six dramas to its fall lineup. Read on for all the descriptions of the new shows.
Dr. Ken: Ken Jeong will play Dr. Ken, a physician who's good at pathology but bad at bedside manner. He tries to be a good doctor, husband, and dad, but frequently screws things up. Fortunately, he has a therapist wife (played by Suzy Nakamura) to help balance him out.
The Real O'Neals: A seemingly perfect Catholic family turns out not to be. (Perfect, that is -- presumably they are still Catholic.) According to ABC, their lives "take an unexpected turn when surprising truths are revealed," which is almost certainly code for "at least one child is pregnant and one is gay." Martha Plimpton, Jay R. Ferguson, Noah Galvin, Matthew Shively, Bebe Wood, and Mary Hollis star as the imperfect Catholics. Dan Savage will be one of the executive producers, furthering a hunch that an LGBT story line is imminent.
The Muppets: Muppets, but for grownups! The mockumentary will take a look at the real lives ("both at home and at work") of Kermit, Miss Piggy, and the rest of the gang.
The Catch: New Shondaland alert! Mirielle Enos stars as Alice Martin, a fraud investigator who becomes the victim of... fraud! She has to find her ex-fiance before he frames her and destroys her career. Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers are among the executive producers.
Of Kings and Prophets: Looks like NBC is losing their lock on Biblical dramas. A king, a prophet, and a shepherd find their fates colliding. Ray Winstone will play King Saul. Religious scholar Reza Aslan is one of the executive producers.
Quantico: Quantico is where the FBI trains its most valuable employees. But in this freshman class, at least one of them is a suspected terrorist mastermind. Priyanka Chopra, Dougray Scott,Jake McLaughlin, Yasmine Al Massri, Johanna Braddy, Tate Ellington, and Graham Rogers are all cast members.
Wicked City: Like True Detective, Wicked City is set to change course every season, each time focusing on a different criminal case in Los Angeles history. For the first season, Adam Rothenberg, Ed Westwick, Taissa Farmiga, and Gabriel Luna are among the cast of people involved in committing, reporting on, or solving a string of serial murders on the Sunset Strip in 1982. This series was originally called L.A. Crime.
The Family: A politician's son reappears a decade after disappearing as a young child. In this thriller, the family has to decide whether the prodigal son is really their son, or an impostor. Joan Allen and Zach Gilford star.
Untitled Pate & Fishburne project: This show, formerly known as Boom, follows a young couple who move to North Dakota's busy oil fields hoping to make big money. A ruthless tycoon (is there any other kind of tycoon?) stands in their way. Don Johnson, Chace Crawford, and Rebecca Rittenhouse will star.
