During its presentation at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour, ABC announced the premiere date for the upcoming original drama series The Baker and the Beauty. The broadcast network has also set series finale dates for Modern Family and How to Get Away With Murder as well as new time slots for American Housewife and Shark Tank.

New drama The Baker and the Beauty will premiere on Monday, April 6 at 10/9c. - filling the time slot currently held by The Good Doctor, which will once again wrap its current season in March.

The drama stars Victor Rasuk, Nathalie Kelley, Carlos Gomez, Dan Bucatinsky, Lisa Vidal, David Del Rio, Belissa Escobedo and Michelle Veintimilla.

Dean Georgaris created the drama. He executive produces with Becky Hartman Edwards, Jim Chory, Steve Pearlman, Assi Azar, Avi Nir, ALon Shtruzman, Peter Traugott and Rachel Kaplan. Universal Television, ABC Studios and Keshet Studios produce.
