ABC Announces Fall Schedule; Resurrection to Debut Later in the Season

Posted by The Woman In Black on May 14, 2013

ABC Announces Fall Schedule; Resurrection to Debut Later in the SeasonWe already knew ABC had picked up "Resurrection" (formerly "The Returned") as a new series on its roster, and today we were hoping to learn what night of the week it will be airing on. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait a little while longer.

Paul Lee, President, ABC Entertainment Group, is unveiling the network’s new lineup to the advertising and media communities this afternoon, and we got a look at the schedule, on which "Resurrection" is sadly missing. But the network added the following to its press release: "Please note shows picked up but not listed on the schedule will debut later in the 2013-14 season." In addition, "Resurrection" will be a limited series, airing just 12 to 13 episodes per season.

Below is the full synopsis. ABC will be releasing a first look video of the series a little later in the day so be sure to check back around 4pm ET/1pm PT.

Also, if you're curious about Joss Whedon's “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” it will be airing on Tuesday nights at 8pm.

"Resurrection" Synopsis:
The people of Arcadia, Missouri, are forever changed when their deceased loved ones suddenly start to return. An 8-year-old American boy (Landon Gimenez) wakes up alone in a rice paddy in a rural Chinese province with no idea how he got there. Details start to emerge when the boy, who calls himself Jacob, recalls that his hometown is Arcadia; and an Immigration agent, Martin Bellamy (Omar Epps), takes him there. The home he claims as his own is occupied by an elderly couple, Harold (Kurtwood Smith) and Lucille Garland (Frances Fisher), who lost their son, Jacob, more than 30 years ago. While they look different, young Jacob recognizes them as his parents.

Those closest to the family try to unravel this impossible mystery, including Sheriff Fred Garland (Matt Craven), whose wife, Barbara, drowned 30 years ago while trying to save Jacob. But this boy who claims to be the deceased Jacob knows secrets about his own death that no one else knows -- secrets that Fred’s daughter, Gail (Devin Kelly), will begin to investigate and discover to be true.

“Resurrection” stars Omar Epps (“House”) as Martin Bellamy, Matt Craven (Crimson Tide, A Few Good Men) as Fred, Devin Kelley (Chernobyl Diaries, “The Chicago Code”) as Gail, Frances Fisher (Titanic) as Lucille, Kurtwood Smith (“That ‘70s Show”) as Harold, Sam Hazeldine (The Raven) as Abel, Samaire Armstrong (“Entourage,” “The O.C.”) as Elaine, Nicholas Gonzalez (“Off the Map”) as Connor, Mark Hildreth (Dragon Ball Z) as Tom, and Landon Gimenez as Jacob. Written by Aaron Zelman (“Damages,” “The Killing”). “Resurrection” is executive produced by Aaron Zelman, JoAnn Alfano, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Jon Liebman, Brillstein Entertainment, and Plan B. The pilot was directed by Charles McDougall. “Resurrection” is produced by ABC Studios.

ABC Gives Pickup Order to Resurrection (Formerly The Returned) and Releases Cast Photo; Passes on Gothica

Posted by The Woman In Black on May 11, 2013

ABC Gives Pickup Order to Resurrection (Formerly The Returned) and Releases Cast Photo; Passes on GothicaIn advance of next week's Upfront presentations by the major networks, we close out this week with word on which of ABC's two genre pilots got a new name and pickup order and which got the dreaded call saying it was a pass this time. Read on for the details.

On the "no" side is "Gothica," one that we were watching closely as it was described as a sexy Gothic soap set in the present day that weaves together a mythology incorporating the legends of Dracula, Jekyll and Hyde, Frankenstein, and Dorian Gray among others. Per Deadline, it had a good cast and some early buzz, but its premise of mixing famous horror literary characters just didn’t quite work.

On the other side of the spectrum, "Resurrection" is the new title of "The Returned," and not only is ABC moving forward with it for the 2013-2014 television season, but they also provided Examiner with the cast photo you see below.

Based on a novel by Jason Mott being released this August, the lives of the people of Arcadia are forever changed when their deceased loved ones return out of nowhere in "Resurrection," which comes from writer/executive producer Aaron Zelman with EP's JoAnn Alfano, Jon Liebman, Dede Gardner, and Jeremy Kleiner and director Charles McDougall. The series stars Omar Epps, Sam Hazeldine, Nicholas Gonzalez, Mark Hildreth, Kurtwood Smith, and Landon Gimenez.

Omar Epps Has the Juice in The Returned

Posted by Uncle Creepy on March 7, 2013

Omar Epps has the Juice in The ReturnedMore casting news is coming in for the ABC pilot "The Returned" as Omar Epps has signed on to the project to play a man with a lot on his mind. You know, the whole people who were long thought dead coming back thing can be stressful.

More specifically, in the pilot Epps will portray Martin Bellamy, an agent with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He's a former cop who joined ICE when he got involved with a case involving the trafficking of children. He's empathetic with a soft spot for kids -- despite not having a family of his own -- and is fascinated by Jacob (newcomer Landon Gimenez), a mysterious boy who popped up from nowhere in the middle of rural China.

He joins the recently announced Samaire Armstrong ("The Mentalist"), Nicholas Gonzalez, and British actor Sam Hazeldine (The Raven).

The show, brought to us by Brillstein Entertainment, Brad Pitt’s Plan B, and ABC Studios, is written by Aaron Zelman and directed by Charles McDougall. The project chronicles how the lives of the people in Arcadia are forever changed when their deceased loved ones return.

More on this one soon.
