ABC did some moving around series on the schedule, and shows like the Emmy-winning “Abbott Elementary” and “Big Sky” have new nights.
There’s also new shows like “Alaska Daily,” starring Hilary Swank, and “The Rookie: Feds,” a spin-off of “The Rookie” starring Niecy Nash-Betts.

New Shows on the Fall Schedule
There are two new scripted shows joining the ABC Fall Primetime line-up. One is an original drama, the other is a dramedy spin-off. Both star amazing actresses…let’s take a look:
From the mind of Tom McCarthy (“Spotlight”), “Alaska Daily” stars Hilary Swank as Eileen Fitzgerald, a fiercely talented and award-winning investigative journalist who leaves her high-profile New York life behind after a fall from grace to join a daily metro newspaper in Anchorage on a journey to find both personal and professional redemption.
The show also stars Jeff Perry as Stanley Kornik, Matt Malloy as Bob Young, Meredith Holzman as Claire Muncy, Grace Dove as Rosalind “Roz” Friendly, Pablo Castelblanco as Gabriel Tovar, Ami Park as Yuna Park, and Craig Frank as Austin Teague.
Tom McCarthy is creator and executive producer. Hilary Swank, Melissa Wells, Bert Salke, Kyle Hopkins (Anchorage Daily News) and Ryan Binkley (Anchorage Daily News) are executive producers on the series. “Alaska Daily” is produced by 20th Television, a part of Disney Television Studios.
“The Rookie: Feds”
From the executive producers of flagship series “The Rookie” comes “The Rookie: Feds,” starring Niecy Nash-Betts as Simone Clark, the oldest rookie in the FBI Academy.
The spinoff was introduced as a two-part event during the fourth season of “The Rookie,” where Officer John Nolan (Nathan Fillion) and the LA division of the FBI enlist the help of Simone Clark when one of her former students is a suspect in a terror attack.
The catch is Clark is one of the oldest rookies at the FBI, and has a certain way of doing things that doesn’t always mesh with the status quo.
“The Rookie: Feds” also stars Frankie Faison as Christopher “Cutty” Clark and Felix Solis as Special Agent Matthew Garza.
Alexi Hawley and Terence Paul Winter are co-creators and executive producers. Mark Gordon, Niecy Nash-Betts, Nathan Fillion, Michelle Chapman, Bill Norcross and Corey Miller are executive producers. Entertainment One (eOne) is the lead studio and international distributor of “The Rookie: Feds,” a co-production with ABC Signature.
