Beverly Hills, CA – New ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey appeared on stage for the first time yesterday at a Television Critics Association Tour. She admitted to feeling nervous about it, but then she did the very best thing a network entertainment chief can do when appearing at a TCA – she started her session off with a series of announcements that had everyone taking down every word she said. They included the renewal of all of the network’s Sunday night game shows (collectively one of the nicer developments on broadcast television this summer) and the development of a new drama for 2017 about a television producer who runs afoul of police corruption titled “Ten Days [in the Valley]” starring Emmy winner Kyra Sedgwick.
