Image Gallery: ABC's New 2010-11 Shows
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC has released a host of images from its 2010-11 freshman class. The network's full schedule was announced earlier this morning.

BETTER TOGETHER - Maddie and Ben have been dating for nine years. Maddie's younger sister, Mia, has been dating Casey for seven weeks. Married 35 years, the girls' parents, Vicky and Joel, have recently adopted a carpe diem sort of philosophy, rather like Mia's, maybe because they're getting older and lost a good portion of their savings when the economy tanked. With three very different relationships tightly intertwined in one family, will it be free thinkers vs. over-thinkers, or will each couple begin to see things a little bit differently? The series is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Silver and Gold Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Shana Goldberg-Meehan is executive producer and writer. The pilot was directed by James Burrows. (ABC/BOB D'AMICO) JAKE LACY, JOANNA GARCIA, DEBRA JO RUPP, JENNIFER FINNIGAN, KURT FULLER, JOSH COOKE

BODY OF PROOF - Dr. Megan Hunt (Dana Delany) was in a class of her own, a brilliant neurosurgeon at the top of her game. But her world is turned upside down when a devastating car accident puts an end to her time in the operating room. Megan resumes her career as a medical examiner, determined to solve the puzzle of who or what killed the victims. "Body of Proof" is from ABC Studios. Christopher Murphey wrote the pilot, which was directed by Nelson McCormick. Murphey and Matt Gross serve as executive producers. (ABC/DONNA SVENNEVIK) GEOFFREY AREND, WINDELL MIDDLEBROOKS, JERI RYAN, DANA DELANY, NIC BISHOP, SONJA SOHN, JOHN CARROLL LYNCH

DETROIT 1-8-7 - What does it take to be a detective on America's most dangerous streets? Get ready to be part of the action when a documentary crew rolls with some of Detroit's finest, offering an insider's glimpse behind the curtain of a Homicide Unit. The cameras unearth the crisis and revelation, heartbreak and heroism of these inner city cops -- moments of raw exposure when they address us directly, as well as private moments when they forget they're being filmed. The series is produced by ABC Studios. The pilot was written by Jason Richman. Executive producers are Richman, David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and David Zabel. Jeff Nachmanoff directed the pilot. (ABC/CRAIG SJODIN) D.J. COTRONA, JON MICHAEL HILL, AISHA HINDS, MICHAEL IMPERIOLI, JAMES MCDANIEL, SHAUN MAJUMDER, NATALIE MARTINEZ

HAPPY ENDINGS - Forget who gets to keep the ring - when a couple splits, the real question is, who gets to keep the friends? In this modern comedy, a couple's break-up will complicate all of their friends' lives and make everyone question their choices. When life throws you for a curve, hold on tight to the people you love. From executive producers Jamie Tarses, Jonathan Groff, Anthony & Joe Russo, and co-executive producer David Caspe, "Happy Endings" examines the complex network of long-term friendships. The pilot was written by David Caspe and directed by Anthony & Joe Russo. The series is from Sony Pictures Television and ABC Studios.

MY GENERATION - What a difference ten years can make. In 2000, a documentary crew follows a disparate group of high schoolers from Greenbelt High School in Austin, TX as they prepare for graduation, then revisits these former classmates ten years later as they return home to rediscover that just because they're not where they planned doesn't mean they're not right where they need to be. "My Generation" was created and written by Noah Hawley ("The Unusuals," "Bones"), who is also an executive producer, along with Warren Littlefield, Henrik Bastin, Patrick Magnasson and Martin Piersson. Craig Gillespie directed the pilot. The project is from ABC Studios.

NO ORDINARY FAMILY - The Powells are about to go from ordinary to extraordinary. After 16 years of marriage, Jim and Stephanie's relationship lacks the spark it once had, and their family life now consists of balancing work and their two children, leaving little time for family bonding. During a family vacation set up by Jim in an attempt to reconnect, their plane crashes into the Amazon River. But this is where the fun starts for the Powells, as they soon discover that something's not quite right. Each of them now possesses unique and distinct superpowers.

The pilot was written and co-executive produced by Tom Donaghy, and the executive producers are Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman.
