ABC has made some major changes to its programming slate. The network has scheduled the premiere date for “Modern Family’s” series finale for April 8. In preparation for the ultimate farewell, ABC announced a “Modern Family” marathon of five fan-favorite episodes starting with the pilot that started it all, which will take place Mar. 11. Fans will be able to cast their vote for their favorite episode through a daily twitter poll from the show’s official twitter handle. Voting begins Feb. 3 and concludes Feb. 7. Also, ABC will air say goodbye to “How to Get Away With Murder” on May 14.
On the flip side, there is a new drama coming to the Alphabet network: “The Baker and the Beauty” will debut April 6. Based on the hit Israeli show created by Assi Azar, the modern day fairytale follows Daniel Garcia (Victor Rasuk), a young baker whose life is taken from his Cuban family’s bakery and thrown into the spotlight when he meets Noa Hamilton (Nathalie Kelley) on a wild Miami night. The series also stars Carlos Gómez, Dan Bucatinsky, Lisa Vidal, David Del Rio, Belissa Escobedo and Michelle Veintimilla. Azar serves as executive producer along with Alon Shtruzman, Peter Traugott, Rachel Kaplan, Jim Chory and Steve Pearlman. Watch the trailer below:

Quibi has commissioned “High and Low.“ Produced by Renegade 83, the series follows comedic siblings Erin and Sara Foster, as they set off to uncover what the best travel destinations have to offer. In each episode, the sisters will flip a coin to see who goes high and who goes low. Flipping high entails a luxury travel experience, while landing on low pushes the other sister into a more authentic – and possibly rocky – vacation. Joining the Foster sisters as executive producers are David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe and Greg Goldman.
