Primetime 2007 – ABC’s line up

Sam I Am – What Happens If You Get Into A Car Accident And Get Retrograde Amnesia? You start rebuilding your life because you just don’t know who you are anymore. If you’ve been mean to people, will you now forgive and forget? Samantha Newly is about to find out. Starring Christina Applegate from Married with Children As Samantha, this series puts a new twist on the genre that began with 50 First Dates. Now we see the world from the victim, not from the outside.

Cavemen – Most of us have evolved. It’s been long enough, but 100,000 years has changed most of us from cavemen to homo sapiens. Except these guys. Meet Joel, Jamie and Nick. They are cavemen who do not yet know how to evolve. So they are stuck in the absence of that huge gap in learning that the rest of the world has suffered. Based on the hugely successful Geico insurance commercials, this dynamic comedy series looks pretty funny. It stars Bill English as Joel, and Nick Kroll as … Nick.

Carpoolers – Take four ordinary men, all from the same life course. They all have dreams, hopes, fears and their own personal demons. Force them together in the modern suburban chaos that is the daily commute, and you have The Carpoolers. Four men trying to understand the world as they drive up and down the carpool track. These guys all have hidden fears that, though unspoken, could pop up at any time to catch them out of the blue, but as friends they work to help each other out; Resolving problems; and try to survive. With Fred Goss, Jerry O’Connell, Jerry Minor and Tim Pepper.

Pushing daisies – Once upon a time there was a baker. He was a typical baker, known throughout the city for the quality of his cakes. He made excellent pies. But he also received a gift as a child, and he uses that gift to help his friend, a PI who specializes in unsolved homicides. How can a humble baker help solve a murder? He’s got the Touch. Meet Ned, a man with the gift of touching a dead person and bringing it back to life for a short time. Using this power to help, Ned has the victims name their killers so they can be brought to justice. Starring Lee Pace, Swoosie Kurtz, and Kristen Chenoworth.

Private Practice – After the huge success of Grey’s Anatomy, Shonda Rimes gives it another try to see if she can create the magic a second time. The spinoff is about Dr. Addison Forbes Montgomery who decides to leave Seattle Grace and go to Santa Monica to seek advice from her friends about relationships and motherhood. They have a private practice there, and Addison thinks working with them is a way to remake her own life and move on. With an all-star cast including Amy Brenneman, Tim Daly and Taye Briggs and Kate Wash playing Addison, this series looks set to be a worthy spin-off.

Dirty Sexy Money – It’s been a long time since we saw Dynasty and Dallas on primetime TV. Soap operas have been relegated to afternoon series for so long that we’ve almost forgotten how thrilling it is to see what happens to an atypical family undergoing tremendous turmoil and stress. Now DSM is trying to become the red-haired sexy stepchild of those two legacy series. Focused on New York’s Darling family – a family so wealthy they’re the Upper in the Upper East Side. The main focus on the series isn’t Donald Sutherland as the Darling Patriarch, nor is it William Baldwin as the senatorial bad boy son – it focuses on Peter Krause, who plays Nick. Nick’s job is to be the ultimate spin doctor, turn all the bad press the Darlings generate into good press, to float the family past the top of the river of mud they always get stuck in.
