After yesterday’s post about NBC’s fall line-up, I figured I should post something about ABC. The only show they have that has any kind of direct comic book tie-in, though, is Lost, which is written by comic creators like Brian K. Vaughan and Javier Grillo-Marxuach. And apparently it won’t be returning until “midseason,” i.e. January or February, which I assume means it will run all winter/spring sans reruns, a la Fox does with 24 … a move I can get behind, despite the long wait.
Some new shows on ABC that might be of interest to comic/science fiction fans include:
–Pushing Daisies, about a boy who can bring dead people back to life.
–Eli Stone, about a lawyer in San Francisco who has visions.
–Women’s Murder Club, about a group of women, again in San Francisco, who solve murders.
–Cavemen, about … um, the Geico Cavemen from the insurance commercials. Um, okay.
Canceled ABC shows include George Lopez, Help Me Help You, Knights of Prosperity and What About Brian? … I think my wife was the only person who watched that last one.
And speaking of fall schedules, NBC already has video previews up of some of their fall shows, including the Bionic Woman.
