ABC announced its 2013 fall schedule and it includes new series like "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," Rebel Wilson's "Super Fun Night" and the "Once Upon A Time" spinoff "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland."
In "S.H.I.E.L.D." -- which stands for Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division -- Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from several Marvel films. Agent Coulson assembles a group of Agents from S.H.I.E.L.D to investigate strange cases around the world.
The team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). Joining in on their journey is a new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).
Joss Whedon, who helmed "The Avengers" and is like best known for creating the cult TV series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," serves on the show as an executive producer.
As for "Super Fun Night," "Bridesmaids" and "Pitch Perfect" actress Rebel Wilson plays Junior attorney Kimmie Boubier. Kimmie and her two best friends, Helen-Alice (Liza Lapira) and Marika (Lauren Ash), have had a standing date every Friday night for the last 13 years. However, a change happens in those weekly plans when Kimmie gets a promotion and she is invited by her dashing British co-worker Richard Lovell (Kevin Bishop) to a trendy night club. Kimmie sets out to convince her friends to take Super Fun Night on the road.
Sophie Lowe stars as Alice in "Once Upon A Time in Wonderland." In the series, Alice is believed to be insane after telling her stories from her time in Wonderland. Her doctors aim to cure her with a treatment that will make her forget everything. Just as Alice seems ready to put it all behind her, including the painful memory of losing her love Cyrus (Peter Gadiot), the sardonic Knave of Hearts (Michael Socha) and the White Rabbit (John Lithgow) arrive to save her and bring her back to Wonderland.
