John Ridley’s American Crime, originally penciled in for the Sunday 9 PM berth, will succeed HTGAWM on Thursday, as I hear it was considered too dark for 9 PM. The series, starring Felicity Huffman and Timothy Hutton, debuts March 5. HTGAWM will end its freshman season with a two-hour finale on February 26.
Thanks to Claudia we’ve got scans from the new EW, that features Sports Night.

A drama written by CSI maven Carol Mendelsohn, directed by Michael Dinner and starring Felicity Huffman is close to landing at ABC with a put pilot commitment. The project, produced by Rachel Winter (Dallas Buyers Club), hails from Sony Pictures TV and Mendelsohn’s studio-based Carol Mendelsohn Prods.
The untitled drama is about a special agent (Huffman) who is the fearless leader of a team of young agents on the New York City Joint Terrorism Task Force. A self-proclaimed sexual omnivore but true romantic at heart, she relies on her innate intuition, wry sense of humor and unbelievable ability to draw connections between disconnected bits of information that come across her desk. Armed with intelligence of immediate threats from law enforcement agencies around the city and governments throughout the world, she and her team must confront and neutralize dangerous situations before they escalate.
Mendelsohn, Huffman, Dinner and Winter executive produce with Madhouse’s Robyn Meisinger and Adam Kolbrenner as well as Carol Mendelsohn Prods.’ Julie Weitz. Dinner’s producing partner, Kate DiMento serves as a producer.
