Advertisers were given a sneak preview of ABC 2016 shows debuting this fall earlier today during the network’s upfront presentation. The spectacle began with a Quantico spoof video followed by a (lip-synced) song and dance number headed by the spy show’s star, Priyanka Chopra.
Upfronts are used as a way ensure advertisers that investing in a particular network (in this case, ABC) is worth their time and money. While this upfront featured guest appearances by late night show host, Jimmy Kimmel (who made fun of the other network’s upfront presentations) and Kiefer Sutherland (who shared about his new 2016 show, Designated Survivor) most of the hosting duties were made Channing Dungey, the new president of ABC Entertainment.
