NEW YORK (AP) - ABC is planning a spinoff of its fairytale drama "Once Upon a Time" for next season as well as an action-adventure series based on the Marvel Comics universe. That show, "S.H.I.E.L.D.," comes from hit-maker Joss Whedon.

ABC announced its programming plans on Friday.

New comedies include "Mixology," which focuses on singles looking for love, and "Trophy Wife," starring Bradley Whitford and Marcia Gay Harden.

Another comedy, "Super Fun Night," stars and was written by Rebel Wilson ("Bridesmaids"). "Back in the Game" stars Maggie Wilson as a single mom who, with her son, moves back in with her cranky, ex-athlete dad (James Caan). "The Goldbergs" is a family comedy set in the 1980s.

New dramas also include "Killer Women," about Texas Rangers - including a lone woman Ranger - in the violent Texas frontier.

"Mind Games" pairs Steve Zahn and Christian Slater as brothers and partners in an agency committed to solving clients' problems through psychological manipulation.

"Lucky 7" focuses on seven New York City gas-station employees chipping into a lottery pool for months with high hopes. "Betrayal" pits two lovers on opposite sides of a murder investigation.

And on "Resurrection," the citizens of Arcadia, Mo., find their lives changed forever when deceased loved ones start to return.

Among its plans, the network is saying farewell to cancelled series "Happy Endings," "Body of Proof" and "Malibu Country."

The network is bringing back 10 current series including "Once Upon a Time," "Modern Family," "Scandal," "Grey's Anatomy," "Castle" and "Nashville."

The official unveiling of ABC's fall schedule takes place Tuesday.
