ABC and Warner Bros. Television are in active negotiations for a possible spinoff of "The Middle," which wrapped its nine-season run last week. The new series would star Eden Sher reprising her role of Sue Heck as she deals with what the future holds after the original show's finale.
Before "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," Lisa Rinna was best known for her portrayal as Billie Reed on NBC's "Days of our Lives." Nearly five years since she last appeared on the soap, the actress is heading back to Salem for another go. Will it be Billie vs. Hope (Kristian Alfonso) 4.0, or will something else capture the character's attention?
Lisa Rinna ("The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," "Days of our Lives") is about to get a taste of the Hecks when she guests on the third episode of ABC's "The Middle," which is entering its ninth and final season on ABC.
Robert Scott Wilson ("Days of our Lives," "All My Children") has signed on to play a millionaire bachelor in "The Girl Who Cried Wolf."
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.
Hot on the heels of Fox and NBC’s release of their fall 2014-2015 primetime schedules comes the reveal of ABC’s fall schedule, which includes several new series (which you can read more about here).
ABC has renewed dramas "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," "Castle," "Grey's Anatomy," "Once Upon a Time," "Resurrection," "Revenge" and "Scandal," while also picking up comedies "The Goldbergs," "The Middle," and "Modern Family" for the 2014-2015 television season. The network has yet to decide the fates of drama "Nashville" and comedy "Last Man Standing," although the likelihood of both series returning remains strong.
From Friday, March 14 through Monday, March 17, former "General Hospital" star Ronnie Marmo (ex- Ronnie Dimestico) will be MC'ing a weekend of comedy on Princess Cruises Lines' SAPPHIRE as it heads down to Mexico. Joining the actor as performers will be comedians French Stewart ("The Middle," "3rd Rock From the Sun") and Mo Collins ("MADtv," "Parks & Recreation"), among many others.
ABC formally announced its new lineup of shows on Tuesday at an upfront presentation held at New York City’s Avery Fisher Hall, and Paul Lee, the ABC Entertainment Group president, called series like the network’s new Steven Spielberg-produced drama, “Lucky 7,” soaps! And he revealed much more about the new shows in a special press conference in which Soap Opera Network took part.
ABC has consistently brought soap-worthy programming to primetime (“Desperate Housewives” and “Revenge,” to name but two), and the schedule for this fall is no different: Intermixing with popular mainstay shows like “The Middle,” “Modern Family,” and “Grey’s Anatomy,” come thirteen brand new shows, a few of which may spur “General Hospital” and other daytime soaps to come to mind! And Wendy Moniz (ex-Mayor Finn, “One Life to Live,” ex-Dinah Marler, “Guiding Light”) strengthens the soap/primetime connection with a role in the new drama, “Betrayal.” Read on to get the exciting details!
