How to Get Away with Murder
ABC is proclaiming strength and consistency as it formulates an aggressive fall 2019-2020 television schedule that the network deems its most stable schedule in over a decade.
ABC picks up TGIT mainstays “Grey’s Anatomy,” “How to Get Away with Murder” and “Station 19” for 2019-20 television season.
It didn’t take long for Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” to trend on Twitter shortly after its release early Friday, and ABC was quick to take advantage of it all. The network quickly unleashed an all-new TGIT promo featuring the song with previously used clips from flagship dramas “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away with Murder.”
The creative home of “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away with Murder,” among others, is leaving its longtime home at ABC Studios for a rich overall multi-year deal at Netflix, the streaming giant behind the likes of “The Crown,” “Master of None” and “House of Cards.”
First reported by The New York Times, Paul Lee has stepped down as president, ABC Entertainment Group, effective immediately. Ben Sherwood, co-chairman, Disney Media Networks and president, Disney|ABC Television Group, has named Channing Dungey as Lee’s successor as president, ABC Entertainment. Dungey, who is credited with the successful launch of such shows as “Scandal,” “Criminal Minds,” “How to Get Away with Murder,” “Quantico,” “Army Wives” and “Once Upon A Time,” will report directly to Sherwood. Patrick Moran, executive vice president, ABC Studios, will continue to oversee day-to-day operations, and will also report directly to Mr. Sherwood.
As previously reported, actor Matt Cohen (“How to Get Away with Murder”) has recently joined the cast of ABC’s “General Hospital” in the role of Griffin Munro, Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) new doctor who shares a past connection with someone already in Port Charles. He’ll debut on the Friday, February 5 episode of the soap. In the meantime, why not have your first look at what the new hot doctor looks like standing next to his rowdy patient?
In addition to “The Bold and the Beautiful” becoming the sole nominee and de facto winner in the category of Outstanding Daily Drama, nominees for the “The 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards” were announced today by the organization which recognizes and honors media published, released or broadcast during calendar year 2015 for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives.
There’s a new doctor scrubbing in at “General Hospital.” Matt Cohen has landed the role of Dr. Griffin Munro. The character makes his Port Charles debut the first week of February.
Wilson Bethel (ex-Ryder Callahan, “The Young and the Restless”) continues to rack up the primetime work. The actor has been cast on ABC hit drama, “How to Get Away with Murder.”
“The Young and the Restless'” Scott Elrod (Joe Clark) will be playing an Army doctor on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” which returns with all-new episodes beginning Thursday, February 11 after airing its winter finale last month.
Beginning Monday, November 30, actor Donnell Turner is joining the cast of ABC’s “General Hospital” in the contract role of Curtis, who proves to be a valuable asset to a scheming Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig).
Fans of ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away with Murder” are likely going through withdrawals while anticipating the return of their favorite TGIT dramas, as evidenced by a newly released promo from the network with stars from all three shows reminding viewers of the Thursday, January 29 return of each.

On Tuesday, December 9, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) announced the nominees for the 46th Annual NAACP Image Awards. For the first time since at least 1994, when the category was first recognized, no actor or actress from a daytime drama series was nominated in the Outstanding Actor or Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Drama Series following the organizations decision not to include the categories this year. Representatives for the NAACP have yet to officially comment on the matter at press time.
It should come as no surprise that CBS has handed full season episode orders to all four of its new dramas, including the #1 and #2 new series of the season, “NCIS: New Orleans” and “Scorpion,” Sunday’s #1 scripted broadcast, “Madam Secretary,” and the time period-winning suspense thriller “Stalker.”
If you’re a fan of “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Once Upon a Time,” “Castle,” “Modern Family,” “The Middle,” “The Goldbergs” or “Black-ish” you’re in luck: ABC has extended the episode orders for each of the 7 series beyond the typical 22 episodes. Unfortunately, if you got yourself entwined in “Manhattan Love Story” you’re in for a big disappointment: ABC has canceled the series after just three airings.
