ABC’s New Shows: Watch Trailers for the Fall 2014 Lineup

ABC has announced its new schedule for the 2014-2015 season, and with it, released the first trailers for its upcoming fall series.

Below, see the promos for ABC’s fall offerings and summaries for the new lineup, which includes Shonda Rhimes’ latest drama “How to Get Away with Murder,” starring Viola Davis; “Captain America” spinoff “Marvel’s Agent Carter”; mystery thriller “Secrets and Lies” starring Ryan Phillippe and Juliette Lewis; and Anthony Anderson comedy “Black-ish.”

FALL:

“Black-ish”
Andre ‘Dre’ Johnson has a great job, a beautiful wife, Rainbow, four kids, and a colonial home in the ‘burbs. But has success brought too much assimilation for this black family?

“Cristela”
In her sixth year of law school, Cristela is finally on the brink of landing her first big (unpaid) internship at a prestigious law firm. The only problem is that her pursuit of success is more ambitious than her traditional Mexican-American family thinks is appropriate.

“Forever”
Doctor Henry Morgan, New York City’s star medical examiner, has a secret. He doesn’t just study the dead to solve criminal cases, he does it to solve the mystery that has eluded him for 200 years—the answer to his own inexplicable immortality.

“How to Get Away with Murder”
The brilliant, charismatic and seductive Professor Annalise Keating gets entangled with four law students from her class “How to Get Away with Murder.” Little do they know that they will have to apply what they learned to real life, in this masterful, sexy, suspense-driven legal thriller.

“Manhattan Love Story”
Have you ever wondered what your date was thinking? This romantic comedy exposes the differences between men and women through the unfiltered thoughts, and often contradictory actions, of a new couple who have just begun dating.

“Selfie”
Eliza Dooley has 263,000 followers who hang on to her every post, tweet and selfie. But one lonely day she has a revelation: being friended is not the same as having actual friends. She asks marketing guru Henry to ‘rebrand’ her self-obsessed reputation and teach her how to connect.

MIDSEASON:

“American Crime”
All over the news are reports about a young couple in Modesto, California, who were attacked in their home. The case sends shock waves into the community stirring up tensions across racial lines in this gritty drama.

“Fresh off the Boat”
It’s the ’90s and 12 year old, hip-hop loving Eddie just moved to suburban Orlando from DC’s Chinatown with his parents. It’s culture shock for his immigrant family in this comedy about pursuing the American Dream.

“Galavant”
Dan Fogelman (“Crazy, Stupid, Love”; “Tangled”; “Cars”) teams up with the award-winning musical duo of composer Alan Menken (“The Little Mermaid”; “Beauty and the Beast”) and lyricist Glenn Slater (“The Little Mermaid”; “Tangled”) for a musical comedy fairytale of epic proportions.

“Marvel’s Agent Carter” (Hasn’t commenced filming, so no trailer is available yet)
It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark.

“Secrets and Lies”
Ben Garner is about to go from Good Samaritan to murder suspect, after he discovers the body of his neighbor’s young son in the woods. As Detective Andrea Cornell digs for the truth, the secrets and lies of this town come to the surface and no one is above suspicion.

“The Whispers”
Aliens have invaded Earth by using our most unlikely resource to achieve world domination—our children. As the kids unwittingly help these unseen enemies, the clock counts down in this suspenseful race to save humanity.
