Upfronts week continues in the US, with ABC following on from first NBC and then Fox in showing us what it’ll be made of from Fall 2014 onwards. And it’s going to be quite a diverse crop, in all senses, by the looks of it, assuming anything survives very long.
So after the jump, feast your eyes on Karen Gillan and John Cho as a modern-day Eliza Doolittle and Professor Higgins respectively in Selfie, Ioan Gruffudd as an immortal in Forever, Ryan Phillippe trying to be an ‘everyman’ in a remake of Australia’s Secrets and Lies, musical fairytale comedy Galavant and a whole lot more.
