The Fall TV season hasn't even started yet, and already, at least one network is looking a few months ahead. ABC, which only has one new scripted show (Life on Mars) on its Fall schedule, has picked up three dramas and two comedies for midseason.
Among them: Rob Thomas's Cupid, his remake of his own 1998 show, which now stars Sarah Paulson and Bobby Cannavale (at right). I've been curious about that project for a while now, so I'm glad it's taken the next step toward becoming a series.
The other dramas:
- Castle — Starring Nathan Fillion, the show focuses on a horror novelist who helps the NYPD solve crimes.
- The Unusuals — Starring Amber Tamblyn, this one's described as an "ensemble dramedy" set in a police precinct.
