ABC on Tuesday unveiled a fall lineup that features six new shows and a time-slot change for "Scandal," its buzziest hit.

"Scandal" remains on Thursday nights, but moves from 10 to 9 p.m. to make way for another drama from Shonda Rhimes called "How to Get Away With Murder." The new show, starring Viola Davis as a law professor, is described as a "sexy, suspense-driven legal thriller."

With "Murder," Rhimes now becomes the queen of ABC's Thursday nights, which with "Grey's Anatomy," features an entire lineup of shows from the powerhouse producer.

Among the six new fall shows are four sitcoms, including "Black-ish," starring Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross as a suburban couple trying to hold on to their African-American identity.

The other comedies are "Selfie," a modern-day update on "My Fair Lady," "Manhattan Love Story," a romantic comedy about a couple just starting to date, and "Cristela," starring Cristela Alonzo as an ambitious law student at odds with her highly traditional Mexican-American family.

ABC's other fall drama is "Forever," which has Ioan Gruffudd playing a coroner trying to solve the mystery of his own immortality.

Also of note: "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." moves back one hour to 9 p.m. on Tuesday nights. ABC's other Marvel show, "Agent Carter" with Hayley Atwell in the lead role, will be held for the winter.

Among the six other shows slated for midseason are "American Crime," which returns "Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman to the network. Set in Modesto, the show is a gritty drama about a deadly crime that rocks the community. Also set for midseason: "Secrets and Lies," which stars Ryan Phillipe as a murder suspect trying to prove his innocence.

Among the shows not returning next season are "Mixology," "The Neighbors," "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland," Suburgatory," "Super Fun Night" and Trophy Wife."
