ABC Slots ‘Underbelly,’ Shortens ‘Emergency’

Mar 12, 2007  •  Post A Comment

ABC has set a premiere date for its new comedy series “Notes From the Underbelly,” and plans to shelve “In Case of Emergency” earlier than planned.

The network also announced its Wednesday summertime lineup.

“Notes,” from director/producer Barry Sonnenfeld, focuses on a couple who’re having a baby. The series will debut April 11, replacing “Emergency.”

ABC pulled at least one upcoming “Emergency” episode so that the intended season finale will air sooner, one week before the “Notes” premiere.

Beginning May 30, ABC will shake up its Wednesday lineup, adding reality series “The Next Best Thing: Who is the Greatest Celebrity Impersonator?,” returning series “American Inventor,” and new drama crime drama, “Traveler.”
