In addition to a bevy of potentially great new series headed for ABC this fall, the network also has a few new dramas and comedies on deck for Midseason 2014. Among them, Kyle Killen's Mind Games, starring the underrated Steve Zahn and Christian Slater, who play two brothers who start an agency set up to help solve people's problems. Sounds like a vague description for a line of work, but the trailer above gives us a glimpse of the drama's potential, as we see the two leads plot to manipulate a guy… with good intentions, of course.
Next up, we have Killer Women, which brings Tricia Helfer back to the small screen in a starring role, playing the tough Molly Parker, the only female ranger among the elite Texas Rangers squad.
Killer Women comes from Hannah Shakespear and - in addition to Helfer - stars Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Mark Blucas, as well as Marta Milans, Alex Fernandez, and Battlestar Galactica's Michael Trucco.
And then there's Mixology, a series that centers on ten single people and takes place in a bar over the span of one night.
The format of the series alone sounds intriguing. A lot can happen in a night! Mixology comes from Jon Lucas and Scott Moore and stars Blake Lee, Andrew Santino, Kate Simses, Adam Campbell, Craig Frank, Vanessa Lengies, Alexis Carra, Sarah Bolger, Ginger Gonzaga and Adan Canto.
And last, but not least among the midseason newbies, is Resurrection a drama from Aaron Zelman, which centers on the people of Arcadia, Missouri, who begin to experience what may be a miracle as their deceased loved ones suddenly return to them alive. As the trailer indicates, it starts with an 8-year-old boy, who wakes up in a rice paddy in a rural Chinese province with no memory of how he got there…
This one looks particularly emotional and very intriguing. Resurrection stars Omar Epps, Matt Craven, Devin Kelley, Frances Fisher, Kurtwood Smith, Sam Hazeldine, Landon Giminez, Mark Hildreth, Nicholas Gonzalez and Samaire Armstrong.
All of the above series are set to air on ABC at some point during Midseason 2014.
