The new drama is titled Dr. Odyssey and is set to premiere in fall 2024. Details on the project, written by Murphy, Jon Robin Baitz and Joe Baken, are being kept under wraps — ABC didn’t even provide a logline for the show. The show could be about anything, not one word has leaked in the town about Joshua Jackson’s starring role in his return to primetime. Dr. Odyssey is slated to premiere in the fall for ABC and will be the first new broadcast show from Murphy’s eponymous production company since 911: Lone Star premiered on Fox in early 2020. Disney’s 20th Television is producing with Ryan Murphy Television.

This new series also marks the first network series for Jackson since Fox’s Fringeended in 2013. The actor, who broke out on Dawson’s Creek in the late 1990s, recently starred in Paramount+’s Fatal Attraction and the first season of Peacock’s anthology Dr. Death; he’ll also be part of Sony Pictures’ next Karate Kid film.
