ABC has announced its new 2011-2012 slate of television series, many of which will star prominent stage veterans.

Tony Award winner Kristin Chenoweth, Annie Potts, and Miriam Shor will join star Leslie Bibb in Good Christian Belles, about a former high school "mean girl" who returns to live in her home town after 20 years.

In other dramas, Ashley Judd will play a former CIA agent trying to find her lost son in Missing; Jennifer Morrison will play a mom who moves to a strange New England town in Once Upon a Time; Cristina Ricci and Kelly Garner co-star in Pan Am, set in the world of air travel; and Kerry Washington and Tony Goldwyn co-star in Scandal, about a professional crisis manager.

On the comedy front, Tony Award winner Dan Fogler is one of three friends dealing with modern notions of masculinity in Man Up; Nancy Travis and Molly Ephraim join Tim Allen in Last Man Standing; Jeremy Sisto plays a single father who moves to the suburbs with his teenage daughter in Suburgatory; and Kate Reinders is part of the ensemble cast of Work It.
