ABC today announced it is ordering second installments for some of their popular digital first shows. Forever 31, which is created by and stars comedian Iliza Shlesinger, I Can Find $3000 In Your Home, which stars eBay millionaire Linda Lightman, and Newborn Moms, which is created by and stars Aurorora Browne and Nadine Djoury, will remain fixtures on the new WatchABC app.
ABC said it has also picked up American Koko, which “follows a satirical agency that solves sticky racial situations with sensitivity, vulnerability, honesty and humor.” The web series was created by Diarra Kilpatrick and produced by Viola Davis and Julius Tennon’s JuVEe Productions.
This news follows the recent announcement from ABC that they have released a new version of their Watch ABC app on iOS and Apple TV. Now, not only will you get access to current seasons of shows but also a huge lineup of throwback series and even new content made just for the Watch ABC app.
“Fans on Apple devices will benefit from a dynamic new interface that makes it easier to find shows. All of this allows us to expand beyond the bounds of our linear schedule and extend ABC storytelling to viewers across screens and platforms,” said Karin Gilford the SVP of digital media for ABC.
ABC has long been cord cutter friendly by offering the last few episodes to cord cutters through their Watch ABC app if you are willing to wait a week to watch them. Now, not only will you still have access to shows a week after they air but old seasons of shows such as “Ugly Betty” and even live daytime shows such as “Ellen” have been added.
