ABC Cancels Both ‘Last Resort’ and ’666 Park Avenue,’ Ouch

Sheesh, talk about your Defcon 1.  A submarine-sized hole just erupted in ABC's fall drama lineup, as the network has opted not to move forward with either buzzworthy fall drama 'Last Resort' or '666 Park Avenue,' effectively cancelling both series after their 13-episode orders.  'Last Resort' in particular had attracted quite a bit of critical attention, in spite of its sinking ratings, while '666 Park Avenue' had difficulty finding its place on Sunday nights.  What could have caused the cancellations, and will any good news come of them?

ABC Turning Disney’s ‘Big Thunder Mountain’ Ride Into A TV Show, Because Why Not?

These days, there really is no way to know how well an established property can be adapted into a movie or TV show.  For every 'Haunted Mansion' with Eddie Murphy or 'Battleship,' we have 'Pirates of the Caribbean' and 'Transformers.'  So while Disney's roller coaster 'Big Thunder Mountain' might not seem like the obvious choice to get its own TV show, ABC has set its sights on bringing the famed  Western attraction to the small screen with a dramatic hour-long series.  Will they succeed, or go off the rails?

ABC Awards ‘Nashville’ Full Season Order, Ups Scripts For Others

Whoever said America's country music kick didn't have staying power?  While we wait for ABC to shore up its big-ticket freshman dramas 'Last Resort' and '666 Park Avenue,' the network has gone ahead with upping country drama sensation 'Nashville' to a full-season order.  Meanwhile, the network has offered an additional display of faith in Tim Allen's 'Last Man Standing,' and even rookie Reba McEntire sitcom 'Malibu Country,' but how long until a final decision is made?

ABC to ‘Feel the Force,’ Buys Yet Another Bill Lawrence Comedy

No, we're not seeing the first 'Star Wars' offshoot from Disney's $4.05 billion deal to purchase Lucasfilm, the name is just a coincidence. Had you going though, didn't we! In any case, ABC certainly has 'Scrubs' and 'Cougar Town' creator Bill Lawrence going as well, having purchased yet another comedy from the sitcom developer. This time around, ABC has comissioned Lawrence to adapt UK police sitcom 'Feel the Force,' but how likely is it to go to series?

Is Joss Whedon’s ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ TV Series Pilot Shooting in January?

We live in a fascinating media age with an even more promising future, as last week brought the news trifecta that 2015 would see the releases of 'The Avengers 2,' 'Justice League,' and 'Star Wars - Episode 7.'  Should then, we have any kernel of doubt that Joss Whedon and ABC's forthcoming 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series could be any less real?  From what we've learned, Whedon won't waste any time in shooting a pilot, but when will the series debut?

Disney Channel Plots ‘Boy Meets World’ Sequel Series ‘Girl Meets World,’ Who’s Returning?

You know, it's been a long and strange week.  While we've tried to wrap our heads around the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, and even the $4.05 billion sale of 'Star Wars' to Disney with plans for a seventh installment, about the last thing we can wrap our heads around is a sequel series to a beloved '90s sitcom.  And yet here we are, grasping the notion of a 'Boy Meets World' sequel series, titled cleverly enough, 'Girl Meets World.'  So as long as the world's gone crazy, who from the cast might return?

Another ‘The Office’ Star Getting Their Own Show

Mindy Kaling may have left 'The Office' behind a little earlier than some of her former co-stars, but these days it seems like every 'Office' star has a future sitcom lined up once the show ends its nine-year run.  The latest to set up a new gig is that of Brian Baumgarnter, best known as the often inconsistently slow accountant Kevin Malone.  Greg Daniels is on board to produce at ABC, but what could Baumgartner's new show be about?

Joss Whedon’s ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ TV Series Casts Ming-Na as First New Agent

'S.H.I.E.L.D.,' assemble!  While we still don't know how exactly Clark Gregg will return to reprise the role of Agent Phil Coulson in ABC and Joss Whedon's upcoming 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series, we've at least got the first assuredly living casting.  Former 'ER' doc Ming-Na will add a few new letters to her resume as one of the new agents to be featured in the 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series, but what role will she play?  And what's changed about the original casting?

‘The Hangover’ Writers Making Trippy ‘Mixology’ Sitcom for ABC

While 'The Hangover' franchise has long-since moved on from writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, and will supposedly conclude after the upcoming third installment, TV continues to be a thriving medium that attracts more and more film talent.  Case in point with the eponymous writers, who will next take their talents toward a head-spinning ABC sitcom, perhaps even more difficult-to-put-together than 'The Hangover' itself?  So what's the big twist around 'Mixology,' and when can we expect to see it?
