Fall TV Shows ’07 – Part 2 – ABC

Posted by g3tech on July 2, 2007

New Shows:

Samantha Who? (Mon 9:30 – 10:00) – “It’s a common fantasy: rewind your life, erase all the mistakes and cringe-worthy moments and start over with a clean slate. But for Samantha Newly, the fantasy is far too real. After a hit-and-run car accident puts her into an eight-day coma, she wakes up with retrograde amnesia — meaning that she can function in the world but she can’t remember a single fact about her own life. That’s when our heroine begins the long, comic process of starting over and digging for clues about her former not-so-nice self.” Starring: Christina Applegate (Samantha Newly), Jennifer Esposito (Andrea), Melissa McCarthy (Dena), Jean Smart (Regina Newly), Tim Russ (Frank), Kevin Dunn (Howard Newly)

Cavemen (Tue 8:00 – 8:30) – “Over the last hundred thousand years, mankind has evolved from primitive creatures to sophisticated beings, except for a small minority who unfortunately didn’t evolve physically at all. Now three sophisticated cavemen (who already have a fan base from their popular GEICO commercials) are living in modern-day Atlanta, where they are at odds with contemporary society as they struggle to overcome their physical appearance and the accompanying stereotypes.” Starring: Bill English (Joel), Dash Mihok (Jamie), Nick Kroll (Nick), Kaitlin Doubleday (Kate), John Heard (Trip), Stephanie Lemelin (Thorne)

Carpoolers (Tue 8:30 – 9:00) – “There are men who actively try and figure out the world — together. These men are more complicated than we might think — they have hopes, ambitions, families, careers, and insecurities. These men are the Carpoolers; four guys, living different versions of the modern suburban family life who obsess, dream, and strategize as they rocket their way up and down the carpool lane every day.” Starring: Faith Ford (Leila), Fred Gross (Gracen), TJ Miller (Marmaduke), Jerry O’Connell (Laird), Allison Munn (Cindy), Jerry Minor (Aubrey), Tim Peper (Dougie)

Pushing Daisies (Wed 8:00 – 9:00) – “Pushing Daisies is a love story about a pie-baking young man with a very special gift… the ability to return dead people briefly back to life with just a simple touch — enabling him to help a P.I. crack murder cases by asking victims to name their killers. Director Barry Sonnenfeld, writer-producer Bryan Fuller, and the producers of Big Fish blend romance, crime procedural and high-concept fantasy to create a fairytale in the spirit of Amelie, Stranger than Fiction, and Chocolat. Features a stellar cast.” Starring: Lee Pace (Ned), Anna Friel (Chuck), Chi McBride (Emerson), Kristin Chenoweth (Olive), Swoosie Kurtz (Lily), Jim Dale (Narrator – voice-over), Ellen Greene (Vivian)

Private Practice (Wed 9:00 – 10:00) – “Grey’s Anatomy executive producer Shonda Rhimes combines the heart and soul of television’s top-rated drama with exciting new faces in a sun-drenched new city to create a show with a whole new vibe. This intimate portrait of the choices and changes we make in our search for happy lives, centers around neonatal surgeon Dr. Addison Forbes Montgomery of Grey’s Anatomy. After a failed attempt at reconciliation and two disastrous affairs, a move to Southern California to join her friends’ health cooperative could be just the right prescription to jump-start Addison’s own life.” Starring: Kate Walsh (Addison), Paul Adelstein (Cooper), Amy Brenneman (Violet), Tim Daly (Pete), Taye Diggs (Jackson), Audrey McDonald (Naomi – voice-over), Chris Lowell (Dell)

Dirty Sexy Money (Wed 10:00 – 11:00) – “Power, privilege and family money are a volatile cocktail thrust on an idealistic lawyer when he inherits the job of tending to the legal (and sometimes illegal) needs of the absurdly wealthy Darlings of New York City.” Starring: Peter Krause (Nick George), Donald Sutherland (Patrick “Tripp” Darling III), Jill Clayburgh (Letitia Darling), William Baldwin (Sen. Patrick Darling), Natalie Zea (Karen Darling), Glenn Fitzgerald (Rev. Brian Darling), Seth Gabel (Jeremy Darling), Samaire Armstrong (Juliet Darling), Zoe McLellan (Lisa George), Victoria Pratt (Naomi), Laz Alonso (Colin)

Big Shots (Thurs 10:00 – 11:00) – “The line gets blurred between the boardroom and the bedroom in a new outrageous drama about four dysfunctional CEOs who will do anything to stay on top. This foursome takes refuge at their country club where they can discuss business, confide secrets, seek advice. It’s lonely at the top and they have to trust someone to cover their back. Michael Vartan (Alias, One Hour Photo), Golden Globe® winner Dylan McDermott (The Practice), Christopher Titus (Titus) and Joshua Malina (The West Wing, Sports Night) star as our greedy, horny and competitive — yet sexy and likeable — CEOs. ” Starring: Michael Vartan (James Auster), Dylan McDermott (Duncan Collinsworth), Christopher Titus (Brody Johns), Joshua Malina (Karl Mixworthy), Nia Long (Katie Graham), Paige Turco (Lisbeth – guest star), Peyton List (Cameron), Wendy Moniz (Stacey – guest star), Jessica Collins (Marla), Amy Sloan (Wendy)

Women’s Murder Club (Friday 9:00 – 10:00) – “When you are a woman working in a man’s field, you get a lot further by teaming up… so to circumvent the Justice Department boy’s club, San Francisco Detective Lindsay Boxer (Angie Harmon, Law & Order) assembles a secret all-female team of experts — the Women’s Murder Club. Two-time Emmy Award®-winning Director/Producer Scott Winant (Huff, thirtysomething) adapts the bestselling novels by James Patterson into a thrilling new crime series that redefines women’s work. Because sometimes, the best way to get your man is with a woman.” Starring: Angie Harmon (Lt. Lindsay Boxer), Paula Newsome (Claire Washburn), Elizabeth L. Ho (Yuki Castellano), Aubrey Dollar (Cindy Thomas), Tyrees Allen (Det. Warren Jacobi), Laura Harris (Jill Bernhardt), Rob Benedict (Owen)
