ABC Reveals Premiere Dates for Drama 'Rebel' and Comedy 'Home Economics'

ABC has today announced spring premiere dates for the original drama series Rebel starring Katey Sagal and the original comedy series Home Economics starring Topher Grace.

The broadcast network has first made an adjustment to the return dates of its Thursday scripted lineup. Station 19, Grey's Anatomy and A Million Little Things will return on Thursday, March 11 - a one week delay from when they were originally set to continue their current seasons. Moreover, A Million Little Things will be moving to a new night starting Wednesday, April 7 at 10/9c. in order to create a full night of programming on Thursdays from showrunner Krista Vernoff.

Comedy Home Economics will premiere on Wednesday, April 7 at 9:30/8:30c. - following a new episode of The Conners and leading into the nightly debut of A Million Little Things.

The series takes a look at the heartwarming yet super uncomfortable and sometimes frustrating relationship between three adult siblings: one in the 1%, one middle-class and one barely holding on.

The comedy stars Topher Grace, Caitlin McGee, Jimmy Tatro, Karla Souza, Sasheer Zamata, Shiloh Bearman, Jordyn Curet, Chloe Jo Rountree and JeCobi Swain.

Michael Colton and John Aboud created the comedy. They executive produce with Grace, Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum. ABC Signature, Lionsgate Television and The Tannenbaum Company produce.

Drama Rebel will launch on Thursday, April 8 at 10/9c. - following new episodes of Station 19 and Grey's Anatomy. All three dramas are shepherded by writer Krista Vernoff.

Inspired by the life of Erin Brockovich today, Annie "Rebel" Bello is a blue-collar legal advocate without a law degree. She's a funny, messy, brilliant and fearless woman who cares desperately about the causes she fights for and the people she loves. When Rebel applies herself to a fight she believes in, she will win at almost any cost.

The drama stars Katey Sagal, John Corbett, James Lesure, Lex Scott Davis, Tamala Jones, Ariela Barer, Kevin Zegers, Sam Palladio and Andy Garcia.

Krista Vernoff created the drama. She executive produces with Brockovich, Alexandre Schmitt, John Davis, John Fox, Andrew Stearn, Marc Webb and Adam Arkin. ABC Signature, Sony Pictures Television, Davis Entertainment and Trip the Light Productions produce.
