Seven’s Disney output deal will also include dramas The Whispers with Lily Rabe, and The Red Band Society, as well as How To Get Away With Murder, created by Shonda Rhimes (Grey’s Anatomy) featuring Viola Davis.

  1. As ‘Battle Creek’ is being made for the CBS network, forget any cable TV edginess a la ‘Breaking Bad’-you couldn’t even get away with ‘NYPD Blue’ on US network TV these days…

  2. Nein should onsell Gotham to Ten like they did with The OC

    Their treatment of genre shows like Arrow has been awful. Season two finished two weeks ago and Nine hasn’t even started the season premierr

  3. No promo available for Battle Creek so can’t say whether or not I want to see it, but Red Band Society, Gotham, and How To Get Away with Murder all have my attention. The rest I’ll give a pass to.
