ABC ANNOUNCES ADDITIONAL JANUARY PREMIERE DATES

*�Dancing with the Stars Result Show� and �In Justice� Join Friday Night Schedule as of January 6

*�Crumbs� to Follow �Dancing with the Stars,� Beginning Thursday, January 12

The ABC Television Network has announced premiere dates for �Dancing with the Stars Result Show,� �In Justice� and �Crumbs.�

As previously announced, �Dancing with the Stars� will premiere Thursday, January 5. The new season of the summertime hit will premiere with a two-hour installment (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET). As of January 12, it will air in 90-minute installments in its regular time period, 8:00-9:30 p.m., ET. Its eight-week run is scheduled to conclude Thursday, February 23.

�Dancing with the Stars Result Show� will premiere Friday, January 6, in its regular time period, 8:00-8:30 p.m., ET.

This second season of �DWTS� will feature a new lineup of celebrities, who will be announced at a later date. �Dancing with the Stars� is the U.S. version of the international smash hit series, �Strictly Come Dancing.� This version is produced in America by BBC Worldwide. Richard Hopkins (UK) and Conrad Green (USA) are executive producers. Izzie Pick is supervising producer. Alex Rudzinski directs.

�Hope & Faith� will remain on Fridays but moves to an earlier time period, 8:30-9:00 p.m., ET, as of January 6.

�In Justice� also joins the Friday night lineup as of January 6, premiering in its regular time period, 9:00-10:00 p.m., ET. �In Justice� is a completely new take on the procedural drama. Focusing on cases of justice run amok -- sloppy police work, false testimony and biased juries -- the National Justice Project is a high-profile, non-profit organization made up of hungry young associates who approach their work like a puzzle� a puzzle that�s been put together wrong. They fight to overturn wrongful convictions, liberate the falsely accused and discover the identity of those really to blame. They�re led in their task by modern-day heroes, David Swain, a blustery but charismatic attorney of questionable ethics but undeniable talent, and his chief investigator, Charles Conti, a former cop. �In Justice� stars Kyle MacLachlan as David Swain, Jason O�Mara as Charles Conti, Marisol Nichols as Sonya Quintano, Constance Zimmer as Brianna and Daniel Cosgrove as Jon Lemonick. Executive producers on the series are Robert and Michelle King, Stu Bloomberg and Jeff Melvoin. �In Justice� is from Touchstone Television.

�Crumbs� will premiere following the second episode of �Dancing with the Stars� on Thursday, January 12, in its regular time period, 9:30-10:00 p.m., ET. This frantic family comedy focuses on two estranged brothers � Mitch and Jody � who are forced to reunite when their mother, Suzanne, is released from a psychiatric facility. Mitch is the prodigal son who is returning home after a failed Hollywood career, and Jody is the older brother who stayed behind to run the family restaurant business. Rounding out this dysfunctional family is their father, Billy, who has not yet told his resentful and somewhat volatile ex-wife that he�s about to have a baby with his new girlfriend. �Crumbs� stars Fred Savage as Mitch Crumb, Jane Curtin as Suzanne Crumb, William Devane as Billy Crumb, Eddie McClintock as Jody Crumb, Maggie Lawson as Andrea Malone and Reginald Ballard as Elvis. Marco Pennette created the series and serves as executive producer. Mike Tollin, Brian Robbins and Joe Davola are executive producers. �Crumbs� is from Tollin/Robbins Productions in association with Touchstone Television.
