First Look at ABC's New Shows this Fall

Cristela


In her sixth year of law school, Cristela (Cristela Alonzo) is finally on the brink of landing her first big (unpaid) internship at a prestigious law firm. The only problem is that her pursuit of success is more ambitious than her traditional Mexican-American family thinks is appropriate. She’s stuck straddling the old culture she’s trying to modernize at home with her working-class family and the modern world she’s trying to embrace in her professional career. Breakout comedian Cristela Alonzo stars in this hilarious comedy about laughing your way down the path to the new American dream.

Selfie


“Instafamous” Eliza Dooley (Karen Gillan) has 263,000 followers who hang on to her every post, tweet and selfie. But one lonely day, she has a revelation: being friended is not the same as having actual friends. She asks marketing guru Henry (John Cho) to ‘rebrand’ her self-obsessed reputation and teach her how to connect with people in the real world. Loosely based on “My Fair Lady,” “Selfie” explores the modern struggles of Eliza and Henry, as he tries to teach her how to live life offline—whether she ‘likes’ it or not.

Black-ish


Andre ‘Dre’ Johnson (Anthony Anderson) has a great job, a beautiful wife, Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross), four kids, and a colonial home in the ‘burbs. But has success brought too much assimilation for this black family? With a little help from his dad (Laurence Fishburne), Dre sets out to establish a sense of cultural identity for his family that honors their past while embracing the future.

Manhattan Love Story


Have you ever wondered what your date was thinking? This romantic comedy exposes the differences between men and women through the unfiltered thoughts, and often contradictory actions, of a new couple who have just begun dating.

Forever


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.

How to Get Away With Murder


The brilliant, charismatic and seductive Professor Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) gets entangled with four law students from her class, “How to Get Away with Murder.” Little do they know that they will have to apply what they learned to real life, in this masterful, sexy, suspense-driven legal thriller from Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers, executive producers of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal.”

zoaster_toaster 13th-May-2014 06:14 pm (UTC)
IDEC I'm watching Selfie for Karen and the Cho. Also How to Get Away With Murder looks good (and yay Dean Thomas).
lilrongal 13th-May-2014 07:28 pm (UTC)
OH OK I knew he looked familiar and gorgeous!
zoaster_toaster 13th-May-2014 07:35 pm (UTC)
He was also in "Coriolanus" this past year with Tom Hiddleston and I nearly died of squee whenever they hugged during the play.
therearewords 13th-May-2014 08:20 pm (UTC)
Dean Thomas grew up to be a hottie.
deirdreextreme 13th-May-2014 06:17 pm (UTC)
ALSO, shonda better not fuck it up with Murder bc i need more Viola on TV
zoaster_toaster 13th-May-2014 06:18 pm (UTC)
The world needs more Viola tbqh. I'm still peeved over Meryl winning the Oscar over her three years ago.
zephyrkist 13th-May-2014 06:19 pm (UTC)
I can't believe I just watched all of these. Terrible!!

I wanted to give Selfie a chance, but the humor is terrible and it opens up with a joke about a black lady's name... why

Forever is the one I'd watch b/c I've always been in love with Ioan Grufford, but it kind of looks like House?
trackguy25 13th-May-2014 06:20 pm (UTC)
I saw the pilot for Black-ish a while ago and it was kind of slow. I would have to see a few more episodes before I would decide whether or not to watch it on regular basis.

I was hoping they would one of the other titles they were considering though.

The premise for Forever sounds familiar. Wasn't there some other show where the lead was a detective but was immortal too?
tommybeulah 13th-May-2014 06:27 pm (UTC)
The one with the H50 guy?
uptoten 13th-May-2014 06:38 pm (UTC)
It was New Amsterdam starring Nikolaj Coster Waldau from Game of Thrones. Was actually pretty neat.
tommybeulah 13th-May-2014 06:25 pm (UTC)
I wanna see the trailer for Galavant and American Crime.

THREE POC-focused comedies on a mainstream American network; am I dead? Is this representation heaven?
lilrongal 13th-May-2014 07:28 pm (UTC)
Right?
hypermuseic9 13th-May-2014 07:51 pm (UTC)
we did it, kids!
evett 13th-May-2014 06:29 pm (UTC)
well shit I guess Laurence Fishburne doesn't make it on Hannibal.
hewontgo 13th-May-2014 06:32 pm (UTC)
he is just a producer and has a recurring role on Black-ish
so he can still do Hannibal
leia_black 13th-May-2014 11:39 pm (UTC)
Plus Black-ish is a fall show and Hannibal is a midseason, so they'd film at different times as well.
onhold4u 13th-May-2014 06:31 pm (UTC)
why is sexy prison guard on How to Get Away with Murder?
hewontgo 13th-May-2014 06:33 pm (UTC)
i hope he can still do OITNB

onhold4u 13th-May-2014 06:38 pm (UTC)
Right? Maybe the filming schedules don't conflict..
I won't object to seeing more of him.
browneyedguuurl 13th-May-2014 06:32 pm (UTC)
So Trophy Wife got cancelled for those flop comedies? SMH!
thelackoflight 13th-May-2014 06:47 pm (UTC)
Right? TW is so much cuter and funnier than most of these comedies.
browneyedguuurl 13th-May-2014 06:55 pm (UTC)
You spelled all wrong bb. I am never going to be over it, just like with Apt 23.
pastelstar 14th-May-2014 02:32 am (UTC)
