New ABC Series To Debut in January
"In Justice" joins the Friday night lineup as of Jan. 6, premiering in its regular time period, 9:00-10:00 p.m., ET. Focusing on cases of justice run amok -- sloppy police work, false testimony and biased juries -- the National Justice Project is a high-profile, non-profit organization made up of hungry young associates who approach their work like a puzzle… a puzzle that’s been put together wrong. They fight to overturn wrongful convictions, liberate the falsely accused and discover the identity of those really to blame. They’re led in their task by modern-day heroes, David Swain, a blustery but charismatic attorney of questionable ethics but undeniable talent, and his chief investigator, Charles Conti, a former cop.
“Crumbs” will premiere following the second episode of “Dancing with the Stars” on Thursday, Jan. 12, in its regular time period, 9:30-10:00 p.m., ET. “Crumbs” stars Fred Savage as Mitch Crumb, Jane Curtin as Suzanne Crumb, William Devane as Billy Crumb, Eddie McClintock as Jody Crumb, Maggie Lawson as Andrea Malone and Reginald Ballard as Elvis.
This frantic family comedy focuses on two estranged brothers – Mitch and Jody – who are forced to reunite when their mother, Suzanne, is released from a psychiatric facility. Mitch is the prodigal son who is returning home after a failed Hollywood career, and Jody is the older brother who stayed behind to run the family restaurant business. Rounding out this dysfunctional family is their father, Billy, who has not yet told his resentful and somewhat volatile ex-wife that he’s about to have a baby with his new girlfriend.
As previously announced, “Dancing with the Stars” will premiere Thursday, Jan. 5. The new season will kick off with a two-hour installment. As of Jan. 12, it will air in 90-minute installments in its regular time period, 8:00-9:30 p.m. Its eight-week run is scheduled to conclude Thursday, Feb. 23. “Dancing with the Stars Result Show” will premiere Friday, Jan. 6, in its regular time period, 8:00-8:30 p.m., ET. This second season will feature a new lineup of celebrities, who will be announced at a later date.
“Hope & Faith” will remain on Fridays but moves to an earlier time period, 8:30-9:00 p.m., ET, as of Jan. 6.
