INTRIGUING AND ROMANTIC NEW DRAMA SERIES
�SIX DEGREES� PREMIERES THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21,
FOLLOWING �GREY�S ANATOMY� ON ABC
From Emmy-winning Executive Producer of �Lost� and �Alias,� J.J Abrams
They say that anyone on the planet can be connected to any other person through a chain of six people, which means that no one is a stranger� for long. In this new drama from the producers of �Lost� and �Alias,� six very different New Yorkers go about their lives without realizing the impact they're having on one another, but a mysterious web of coincidences gradually draws them closer, changing the course of their lives forever, on �Six Degrees,� a new ensemble drama about the possibilities of a greater force at work guiding everyone together and connecting the lives of us all, premiering THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
In the premiere episode, �Pilot,� Laura, a grieving single mother, begins the chain. Next is Whitney, the self-made success story who thinks her boyfriend is cheating. Move on to Steven, the artist/photographer who believes he�s lost his �eye.� Follow with Damian, who can�t escape his criminal brother�s shadow, then on to Mae, the girl with a dangerous past that she�s hiding from, and finally to Carlos, the good guy with a crush who doesn�t know what he�s in for.
This intriguing tale of intertwined destinies reminds us that romance, success, peace or forgiveness might be right around the corner, but they can also be lost in an instant.
