ABC outlined the network’s Fall Dramas this week, and the schedule includes “Big Sky,” “Station 19,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “For Life,” and “A Million Little Things.” These scripted dramas join ABC’s unscripted and comedy slate, which were announced earlier this month.
“Our fall schedule is now complete with a dynamic lineup of new and returning drama series,” said Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment. “From fan-favorite shows like ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘The Good Doctor’ to David E. Kelley’s thrilling new drama ‘Big Sky,’ our strength is in our storytelling, and we could not be more energized to bring these compelling series to our viewers.”
