Update 5: I think I might have jumped the gun on Mistresses earlier, but it has now officially been picked up.

Update 4: And Reba McEntire's Malibu Country.

Update 3: and drama 'Last Resort' from Shawn Ryan.

Update 2: also drama '666 Park Avenue'

Update: ABC has also picked up comedy 'How To Live with Your Parents for the Rest of Your Live' - let's hope they shorten that before the season starts!

ABC has picked up two comedies --'The Family Tools,' and 'The Neighbors' -- along with the dramas 'Nashville,' 'Red Widow,' and 'Zero Hour.'

    Based on their descriptions, I was hoping that ABC would pick up at least a couple of 666, Last Resort, Nashville and Zero Hour. So I really can’t find any fault with their drama pick-ups.

    Hopefully I’ll actually like the shows once I see them.

  • Holly

    It’s a yes.

  • Jessie

    Is Mistress with Alyssa Milano? really? Tell me I’m wrong.

  • The Mike Factor


    No, you’re right.

    ‘666 Park Avenue’ LOVE IT! I love Vanessa, I’m glad it was picked up! No Devious Maids? hmmmmmmm?

  • Guy

    I am surprised that Devious Maids, Gilded Lillies and Americana were not picked up although the upfronts haven’t happened yet and to me i am hopeful that there is a few more new shows to be announced from ABC. Even Beauty and the Beast was predicted to be picked up too so a little baffled right now. Lets hope there is more to come from ABC.

  • Matto

    its an absolute shame they passed on the top 2 drama frontrunners, Americana and Devious Maids and ended up picking Zero Hour above them. What a shame.

  • RG-X

    Wasn’t “Nashville” a reality show that aired for 4 weeks on another network? Is that the same show?!

  • AO

    This is not the same show.
