Just when you thought ABC’s pickup of Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ was all that mattered, the network has piled up a mountain of new series for pickup. Most intriguing of which is the ‘Once Upon a Time’ spinoff ‘Once Upon a Time in Wonderland,’ which has also been revealed to cast former ‘Dexter‘ star John Lithgow as the voice of the White Rabbit, replacing Paul “Pee-Wee” Herman for unknown reasons.
Also moving forward at the network are Rebel Wilson’s sitcom ‘Super Fun Night,’ and the unique ‘Mixology,’ which tells the tale of ten interlocking friends’ stories over the course of a single night. Other comedies include ‘Back in the Game,’ starring James Caan and Maggie Lawson, and ‘Trophy Wife’ with Malin Akerman, Bradley Whitford and Marcia Gay Harden.
On the drama side, ABC picked up a hefty order that includes ‘Betrayal,’ the story of a woman whose husband and lover form opposite sides of a high-profile murder case, ‘Lucky 7,’ about a group of gas-station employees who win the lottery, Tricia Helfer‘s ‘Killer Women,’ ‘Mind Games,’ starring Steve Zahn and Christian Slater as brothers who run a unique consulting agency and finally ‘Resurrection,’ in which residents of a Missouri town find their dead loved ones returning to them.
