On Tuesday, May 17, the ABC Television Network presented its 2011-2012 primetime schedule in front of advertisers, affiliates and the press. Two months earlier, I received intel on a new series called “Once Upon a Time” that the network had in development where fairy tales and the modern-day collide in the town of Storybooke.
From the moment I read up on the potential program, I knew I wanted to see how it would turn out. I’m happy to report that ABC has picked up the program to series and it will air on Sundays at 8:00 PM beginning this fall.
Based the clip I just received, I have to say that even though I knew this was going to be a program geared towards families, it does look a little darker than I ever expected while still remaining just light enough that the kiddies can stay up and watch.
