ABC Pulls ‘Of Kings and Prophets’ From Fall Schedule; ‘Quantico’ Moves to Sunday

In the first — and probably not the last — schedule change on the broadcast networks’ 2015-16 schedules, ABC has pulled new drama “Of Kings and Prophets” from its Sunday lineup and replaced it with another newcomer, “Quantico.” Both shows hail from ABC Studios.

Quantico” (pictured) was among best-received new programs coming out of the network upfronts last month. The drama, which stars Priyanka Chopra, centers on a diverse group of recruits as they arrived at the FBI Quantico Base for training. It seems impossible, but one of them is suspected of masterminding the biggest attack on New York City since 9/11.

Originally scheduled to air Tuesdays at 10 p.m., “Quantico” will now run Sundays at 10. It will follow another first-year drama, the soapy “Blood & Oil” starring Don Johnson and Chace Crawford. The network recently changed the name of this drama, which had been known earlier this year as “Boom,” from its announced “Oil” title to “Blood & Oil.”

ABC has yet to announce what will air Tuesdays at 10. It has several midseason dramas on tap for next season, but it’s unclear if “Wicked City,” “The Family” or “The Catch” would be ready in time for fall.

Of Kings and Prophets” is described as an epic biblical saga of faith, ambition and betrayal as told through the eyes of a battle-weary king (Ray Winstone), a powerful and resentful prophet and a resourceful young shepherd on a collision course with destiny.
