.....ABC orders 3 new shows:


The Rookie: Feds, an offshoot of the Nathan Fillion-led ABC procedural Niecy Nash-Betts will star as Simone Clark, the oldest rookie in the FBI Academy; the character made her debut in a two-part backdoor pilot that aired on The Rookie earlier this season.

Not Dead Yet, a comedy starring Jane the Virgin alum Gina Rodriguez as Nell, “a broke and newly single self-described disaster,” per the official description. When she’s forced to take a job writing obituaries, “Nell starts getting life advice from an unlikely source.” The cast also includes Joshua Banday (Upload) and Angela Gibbs (Hacks, On My Block).

Alaska, a drama starring Oscar winner Hilary Swank (Boys Don’t Cry, Million Dollar Baby) as a disgraced reporter who moves from New York to join a daily newspaper in Anchorage, Alaska “on a journey to find both personal and professional redemption.” Jeff Perry (Scandal), Matt Malloy (Six Feet Under) and Meredith Holzman (Law & Order: SVU) lead the supporting cast; Tom McCarthy (Spotlight) will serve as creator and executive producer.

ABC Orders The Rookie Spinoff to Series, Plus Gina Rodriguez Comedy and Hilary Swank Drama

....ABC is enlisting a spinoff of The Rookie, as well as bringing back a couple of familiar faces on new shows.

The network has handed series orders to three shows for next season, led by The Rookie: Feds, an offshoot of the Nathan Fillion-led ABC procedural, TVLine has learned.

The backdoor pilot’s Frankie Faison (The Wire) and Felix Solis (Ozark) will continue on as Cutty and Agent Garza, but Kat Foster’s role (as Agent Fox) is not moving forward, TVLine hears.

Also coming to ABC next season: Not Dead Yet, a comedy starring Jane the Virgin alum Gina Rodriguez as Nell, “a broke and newly single self-described disaster,” per the official description. When she’s forced to take a job writing obituaries, “Nell starts getting life advice from an unlikely source.” The cast also includes Joshua Banday (Upload) and Angela Gibbs (Hacks, On My Block).

Plus, ABC ordered Alaska, a drama starring Oscar winner Hilary Swank (Boys Don’t Cry, Million Dollar Baby) as a disgraced reporter who moves from New York to join a daily newspaper in Anchorage, Alaska “on a journey to find both personal and professional redemption.” Jeff Perry (Scandal), Matt Malloy (Six Feet Under) and Meredith Holzman (Law & Order: SVU) lead the supporting cast; Tom McCarthy (Spotlight) will serve as creator and executive producer.......

L.A. Law Revival DOA at ABC

....ABC has given L.A. Law the (elevator) shaft, opting not to order a potential revival of the legal drama to series,

The continuation, which initially scored a pilot order last October, would have been set once again at the venerable law firm of McKenzie Brackman, which had reinvented itself as “a litigation firm specializing in only the most high-profile, boundary-pushing and incendiary cases,” according to the official synopsis. Blair Underwood (as Jonathan Rollins) and Corbin Bernsen (as Arnie Becker) were among the original series alumni slated to return, alongside new cast members Toks Olagundoye (Castle), John Harlan Kim (Nancy Drew) and Arrow vets Juliana Harkavy and Kacey Rohl......
