[via press release from ABC]

ABC ANNOUNCES THE PREMIERES OF NEW COMEDIES �THE KNIGHTS OF PROSPERITY� AND �IN CASE OF EMERGENCY,� WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 3

�Lost� Returns with Original Episodes Wednesday, February 7 At a New Time, 10:00 p.m., ET

ABC will kick off the New Year with the premieres of the innovative new comedies �The Knights of Prosperity� and �In Case of Emergency� on WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 3. �The Knights of Prosperity� will air at 9:00 p.m., ET, followed by �In Case of Emergency� at 9:30 p.m., ET.

�The Knights of Prosperity� is a hilarious tale of haves and have nots, starring Donal Logue as the leader of a band of affable, new-age Robin Hoods who have never even shoplifted a candy bar, but now find themselves prepping for a heist to finance all of their long-held, heart-felt dreams. The target -- Rock icon Mick Jagger�s super luxe Central Park West apartment.

In the premiere episode, �Pilot,� Eugene Gurkin�s (Donal Logue) dreams have always exceeded his means. In fact his dead end job on the late, late janitorial shift won�t even fund a bottle of premium booze. In a serendipitous moment, he catches an episode of an entertainment news show and his passion is ignited. Soon he excitedly recruits a group of �average Joes� into his �gang� -- �The Knights of Prosperity� � to plan the celebrity heist. The first order of business is to get a copy of the key to Jagger�s apartment. And, as usual for this group of �Ocean�s Idiots,� nothing comes easily. Their scheme is to steal from the rich and give to the poor � namely, themselves. What they don't realize is that there�s a much richer target for them� the chance to find hope, self-esteem and self-confidence.

�The Knights of Prosperity� stars Donal Logue (�Grounded for Life�) as Eugene Gurkin, Sof�a Vergara (�Hot Properties�) as Esperanza Villalobos, Lenny Venito as Francis �Squatch� Squacieri, Maz Jobrani as Gourishankar �Gary� Subramaniam, Kevin Michael Richardson as Rockefeller Butts and Josh Grisetti as Louis Plunk.

The series is co-created and executive-produced by Rob Burnett and Jon Beckerman. David Letterman, Mick Jagger and Victoria Pearman are also executive producers. Merrill Karpf, Steve Tompkins and Eric Horsted are co-executive producers. �The Knights of Prosperity,� a single-camera comedy, is a production of Touchstone Television.

�In Case of Emergency� is a unique laugh-out-loud comedy that proves any colossal mistake can be overcome with a lot of help from your friends� and pain killers. It is the story of four old friends from high school who find themselves at that stage where they realize that their lives didn�t turn out exactly the way they�d planned. Unhappily divorced greeting card writer Harry goes for a relaxing �massage,� only to discover his scantily clad �therapist� is Kelly, their high school valedictorian, who�s had her own fall from grace. Diet Guru Sherman returns home to discover his wife has left him and taken everything he owns; devastated by the loss, he hijacks a bakery truck and binges on all its contents. Faced with imprisonment for his role in a corporate scandal, financial whiz Jason botches his suicide attempt only to shoot himself in the foot � literally. Over the course of one crazy evening, a series of calamities reunites this hapless brood at Los Angeles Westside Hospital, where they all find themselves under the care of a reluctant Dr. Joanna.

�In Case of Emergency� stars David Arquette (�Scream�) as Jason Ventress, Jonathan Silverman (�Jekyll�) as Harry Kennison, Greg Germann (�Ally McBeal)� as Sherman Yablonsky and Kelly Hu (�The Scorpion King) as Kelly Lee, a fresh quartet of emotionally and physically injured oddballs. Also starring are Lori Loughlin (�Full House,� �Summerland�) as Dr. Joanna, and Jackson Bond (�The Invasion�) as Harry�s young son, Dylan.

Created by Howard J. Morris, �In Case of Emergency� is a production of Touchstone Television, Bushwacker Productions and Howard J. Morris Productions.

Editor�s note: Double episodes of returning favorite �According to Jim� will air from 8:00-8:30 and 8:30-9:00 p.m., ET, from January 3-17. On January 24 �George Lopez� returns with all-new episodes at 8:00 p.m., followed by �According to Jim� at 8:30 p.m.

�Lost� will return at a new time, 10:00 p.m., ET, on Wednesday, February 7 with all original episodes.
