via The Hollywood Reporter (btw, we’ll post schedules for all networks as soon as we see them, likely beginning on Monday 5/18):
After adding five new scripted series during the strike-impacted 2008-09 season, ABC is back in a reboot mode, ordering 10 new series — six dramas and four comedies — and keeping several more pilots for midseason consideration.
ABC’s high concept-heavy drama slate include two new crime dramas — the Bruckheimer-produced amateur sleuths show “The Forgotten” and murder mystery “Happy Town,” from the creative team behind “October Road”; legal drama, “The Deep End”; as well as two 1980s adaptations, “Eastwick,” based in the movie with Jack Nicholson and “V,” based on the NBC miniseries.
