ABC debuts two for Tuesdays

US broadcast network ABC is sticking with tried-and-tested content in its fall 2019 schedule, with just three new scripted shows in its initial line-up.

Two of those debutants will air on Tuesday nights, with Black-ish spin-off Mixed-ish slotting in at 21.00 just before the show that spawned it and Emergence coming in at 22.00. The third newcomer, Stumptown, has been given a Wednesday 22.00 slot. All three are produced by ABC Studios.

The Alphabet Network’s other new scripted series – dramas The Baker & the Beauty and For Life, plus comedy United We Fall – will all be given midseason premieres.

It’s the first fall schedule to be presented by Karey Burke since she succeeded Channing Dungey as president of ABC Entertainment in November last year.

“Since the beginning of the year, ABC has been the number-one network with a schedule that is working, and we are going to nurture it,” Burke said.

“Going into next season, our priorities are stability and launching shows in a way our audience will know we are committed to them. Add to that some of the most buzzed-about titles and top talent of the recent pilot season and we have an enviable combination that sets the stage for us to win with women and grow our overall reach.”
