By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC has released a host of images from its 2010-11 freshman class. The network's full schedule was announced earlier this morning.

BETTER TOGETHER - Maddie and Ben have been dating for nine years. Maddie's younger sister, Mia, has been dating Casey for seven weeks. Married 35 years, the girls' parents, Vicky and Joel, have recently adopted a carpe diem sort of philosophy, rather like Mia's, maybe because they're getting older and lost a good portion of their savings when the economy tanked. With three very different relationships tightly intertwined in one family, will it be free thinkers vs. over-thinkers, or will each couple begin to see things a little bit differently? The series is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Silver and Gold Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Shana Goldberg-Meehan is executive producer and writer. The pilot was directed by James Burrows. (ABC/BOB D'AMICO) JAKE LACY, JOANNA GARCIA, DEBRA JO RUPP, JENNIFER FINNIGAN, KURT FULLER, JOSH COOKE

BODY OF PROOF - Dr. Megan Hunt (Dana Delany) was in a class of her own, a brilliant neurosurgeon at the top of her game. But her world is turned upside down when a devastating car accident puts an end to her time in the operating room. Megan resumes her career as a medical examiner, determined to solve the puzzle of who or what killed the victims. "Body of Proof" is from ABC Studios. Christopher Murphey wrote the pilot, which was directed by Nelson McCormick. Murphey and Matt Gross serve as executive producers.

MY GENERATION - What a difference ten years can make. In 2000, a documentary crew follows a disparate group of high schoolers from Greenbelt High School in Austin, TX as they prepare for graduation, then revisits these former classmates ten years later as they return home to rediscover that just because they're not where they planned doesn't mean they're not right where they need to be. "My Generation" was created and written by Noah Hawley ("The Unusuals," "Bones"), who is also an executive producer, along with Warren Littlefield, Henrik Bastin, Patrick Magnasson and Martin Piersson. Craig Gillespie directed the pilot. The project is from ABC Studios.

NO ORDINARY FAMILY - The Powells are about to go from ordinary to extraordinary. After 16 years of marriage, Jim and Stephanie's relationship lacks the spark it once had, and their family life now consists of balancing work and their two children, leaving little time for family bonding.
