ABC ANNOUNCES THE PREMIERE OF "OCTOBER ROAD" AND THE RETURN OF "SIX DEGREES"

ABC has announced that the new drama series "October Road" will premiere THURSDAY, MARCH 15 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the Network. "MEN IN TREES" will return in this timeslot following an initial run of the new series.

In addition, "Six Degrees" will return with original episodes in a new time slot, Fridays at 9:00 p.m., as of FRIDAY, MARCH 23.

"October Road" centers on the young, popular author, Nick Garrett, who is at a crossroads in his life. To get over his writer's block, he goes back to his hometown and must now face the family and friends he has avoided for the past ten years. Once back home on October Road, he quickly discovers that the circle of friends whose teenaged lives he wrote about have trouble forgiving him for leaving them behind, and that his ex-girlfriend, Hannah Daniels, may have had his child.

"October Road" stars Bryan Greenberg as Nick Garrett, Laura Prepon as Hannah Daniels, Tom Berenger as The Commander, Warren Christie as Ray "Big Cat" Cataldo, Brad William Henke as Owen Rowan, Evan Jones as Ikey, Jay Paulson as Physical Phil, Slade Pearce as Sam Daniels, Geoff Stults as Eddie Latekka and Odette Yustman as Aubrey.

"October Road" is executive-produced by Gary Fleder, Scott Rosenberg, Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec. The series is a joint production between ABC Television Studio and GroupM Entertainment.

"Six Degrees" follows the intertwined relationships of six intriguing characters as they affect and influence each other's lives. Laura, a single mother who is embarking on a new career, begins the chain. Next is Whitney, the self-made success story who has just called off her engagement. Move on to Steven, the formerly successful photographer who finally, after years of self-destruction, is taking control of his life and getting his career back on track. Follow with Damian, who can't escape his criminal brother's shadow; on to Mae, the girl with a past that she's hiding from; then to Carlos, the good guy who's fallen for her, and finally to Ray, the force of nature who will eventually bring all these characters together.

"Six Degrees" stars Jay Hernandez as Carlos Green, Bridget Moynahan as Whitney Crane, Erika Christensen as Mae, Dorian Missick as Damian, with Campbell Scott as Steven Caseman and Hope Davis as Laura.

"Six Degrees" is shot on location in New York City and is produced by Bad Robot, Nosebleed Productions and ABC Television Studio. Executive producers are J.J. Abrams, Stuart Zicherman, Raven Metzner, Bryan Burk, Ken Biller and Peter Horton.
