ABC have followed NBC and Fox’s lead by releasing trailers for their new shows.
The network will be hoping for a few big hits one of which is expected to be Shonda Rhimes’ (Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy) new show How To Get Away With Murder with Academy Award nominee Viola Davis. The show will air as a triple-Shonda-bill on Thursdays this autumn in the US.
Other shows making their debut in the 2014-2015 season include Felicity Huffman’s TV return in the gritty American Crime, Revenge star Barry Sloane and American Horror Story’s Lily Rabe in supernatural thriller The Whispers and off-beat period musical comedy Galavant.
