ABC Fall Roster Is Heavy on the Already Proven


ABC on Tuesday is expected to announce a lineup of scripted prime-time shows for next year that will look a lot like this year’s slate, with two notable exceptions: a new drama called “Life on Mars,” in which a police officer is transported from the 21st century back to the 1970s, and “Scrubs,” a castoff from NBC.

Having lost four months of its development season to the writers’ strike, the network will, at least initially, rely heavily on fan favorites like “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Desperate Housewives,” “Ugly Betty,” “Lost” and “Boston Legal.” ABC will also effectively reintroduce shows like “Dirty Sexy Money,” “Pushing Daisies,” “Eli Stone” and “Private Practice,” which had truncated runs this season, according to people briefed on the schedule who did not want to be identified revealing its details before it is officially announced.
