<a href="https://deadline.com/tag/abc/" id="auto-tag_abc">ABC</a> has opted not to pick up to series its <a href="https://deadline.com/tag/sue-heck/" id="auto-tag_sue-heck">Sue Heck</a>-centered spinoff from hit family comedy <em><a href="https://deadline.com/tag/the-middle/" id="auto-tag_the-middle">The Middle</a></em>. I hear the project might be shopped by producing studio Warner Bros. TV. Titled<em> <a href="https://deadline.com/tag/sue-sue-in-the-city/" id="auto-tag_sue-sue-in-the-city">Sue Sue in the City</a>,</em> the single-camera comedy stars<em> The Middle</em> standout Eden Sher as Sue Heck and comes from T<em>he Middle</em> creators/executive producers Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline. It was ordered by ABC to pilot in August, with Chris Diamantopoulos cast alongside Sher and fellow <em>Middle</em> alum…
Sue Heck will have at least one familiar face from Orson joining her when she makes her way to the Windy City. Brock Ciarlelli, who recurred as best friend Brad in all nine seasons of ABC’s recently ended The Middle, has joined the potential spinoff as a series regular, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In addition, […]
Heck, yes! It appears ABC is moving forward with a Sue-centric Middle spinoff. The offshoot’s headliner, Eden Sher, tells TVLine that the network has ordered a pilot for the potential series. The actress broke the news Thursday afternoon at TVLine’s Comic-Con interview suite. (ABC declined to comment.) “We are shooting a pilot,” Sher exclaims in the […]
With "The Middle" coming to an end Tuesday after nine seasons, the actress is saying goodbye to her TV family.
Coming out, sexual assault, self-worth — those are just some of the issues Teen TV is tackling today. Showrunners Joss Whedon, Julie Plec, I. Marlene King, and others remember their most impactful storylines.
"TV shows are a message, a warning, from one generation to the next, about how not to do things," says one creator. Here's why social media still has some producers sounding the alarm.
Showrunners from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "13 Reasons Why," "Pretty Little Liars," and other series tell us how the Marjory Stoneman Douglas students have inspired them.
It’s a slippery slope. First, it was The Lego Movie. Then, it was The Lego Batman Movie. That meant, naturally, that the DC superheroes over on The CW would get Lego-ized — this week’s episodes all feature a spot with Batman and the CW heroes.
Politics have undoubtedly shifted in the era of Trump, but what will become of network TV? Well, according to the new president of ABC, it’s time to make a change in programming to better suit these times.
If you’re looking to get in the Halloween spirit, just keep your TV tuned in to ABC. The network — which kicks off its primetime celebration of the holiday Oct. 19 at 8 p.m. with a 50th anniversary airing of It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown — has a long history of great Halloween episodes (thank you, Roseanne). But it was in 2010 that the network decided to make it a true tradition for its family sitcoms.
Halloween 2016 is on the horizon, and the treats far outweigh the tricks ? on primetime, anyway. This year, the networks have scared up a lineup of spooky sitcom episodes, bone-chilling programming blocks, and other frightful fare that will take you all the way up to Old Hallows' Eve.

A sitcom built around what its protagonist self-describes as “a normal fat person” is bound to be problematic, but it could overcome its problems to a large extent if it were funny.
In this case, we have a show built around an aggressively Irish Catholic clan whose teen son Kenny (Noah Galvin) wants to come out as gay. The latter two are played by Martha Plimpton and Jay R. Ferguson in what are easily the best performances of the show, full of bustling precision.
Earlier this week, ABC announced it had ordered two more episodes each for the current seasons of The Middle, The Goldbergs, and Black-ish, for a total of 24 episodes this season —signalling a further vote of confidence in these sitcoms. Although it doesn’t win the big Emmys, as Modern Family does, and it doesn’t have the buzz Black-ish has, The Middle is the lead-off batter for ABC’s Wednesday-night comedy line-up for a good reason. I credit stars Patricia Heaton and Neil Flynn for a lot of The Middle’s distinctiveness. When The Middle first premiered, though, it was Flynn that surprised me.
It’s October, so you know what that means. Halloween is about to take over the small screen. There’s nothing quite like costumed comedy, and for this season, TV’s funniest characters have pulled out all the stops, with costumes that include Predator, Mr. T, and a cannibalistic serial killer costume worn by an unlikely trick-or-treater.
The new Disney XD series Star vs. the Forces of Evil doesn’t officially debut until March 30, but the fandom has already started for animated princess Star Butterfly (Eden Sher) and her earthling bestie, Marco (Adam McArthur). The buzzy adventure comedy comes from artist and creator Daron Nefcy, and it follows Star, a wand-toting teen princess from another dimension whose royal parents send her to Earth to live with the Diaz family. Star and her BFF Marco Diaz give her wand a workout as they battle villains — and not just the kind in their high school hallways.
