ABC Gives Full-Season Orders to Two Series THR

ABC has given full-season orders to two series, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed. The shows are the freshman comedy "The Neighbors" and the sophomore drama "Scandal."

"The Neighbors," a science-fiction comedy about a couple who move into a gated community populated by aliens, has been a modest performer, the report notes. ABC added three episodes to its order for the series, which stars Jami Gertz and Lenny Venito.

Meanwhile, the political drama "Scandal," from Shonda Rhimes, will gain a full-season order of 22 hours, up from 13 episodes. The program, which stars Kerry Washington, has been a steady draw for the network, the story notes.
