Selfie, Shonda Rhimes' New Drama And Others Get Premiere Dates At ABC

Following CW, CBS, NBC and Fox's announcements of their own Fall 2014 premiere date schedules, ABC has finally unveiled their own lineup of fall premieres. Among the new series set with premiere dates for the fall are the new comedy Selfie and Shona Rhimes' new drama starring Viola Davis, How To Get Away With Murder, among some other promising series.

ABC has the fall season set to kick off with Dancing with the Stars. The following week is when things really get rolling, however, as ABC has a sneak preview of their new drama about an immortal crime-solver, Forever set to air September 22, after which it moves to its regularly scheduled time slot on Tuesday night after Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D....

As is the case with most of the other major networks, ABC has quite a few new and returning series lined up to premiere the week of September 22. That includes Scandal and Grey's Anatomy, which lead in to Shonda Rhimes' newest series How to Get Away with Murder. But a few shows will be rolling out later on, including Last Man Standing, Shark Tank, America's Funniest Home Video and new comedy Cristela, all of which won't debut until early October.

It's exciting to see The Goldbergs set with a great spot between The Middle and Modern Family. ABC has new comedy Black-ish lined up on Wednesday night, where it will hopefully benefit from that prime Modern Family lead-in, after which Nashville will air.

Not included on the schedule are a number of new series that aren't scheduled to premiere until Midseason 2015. That includes Galavant, Secrets and Lies, The Whispers, American Crime and Marvel's Agent Carter.
