Watch Call the Midwife Preview on PBS. See more from pbs.

Let's take a break from ABC's doings and check in with PBS, which announced several fall premiere dates today, including British import "Call the Midwife."

"Midwife," a six-part series that will run on Sundays beginning Sept. 30, is set in London's East End of the 1950s. It's a hit in the U.K., where it premiered in January and soon received a second-season order. Jessica Raine stars, while Heidi Thomas ("Cranford") wrote the script adaptation.
