The New York Television Festival has announced the primetime lineup for its sixth annual event. Because of its September dates – this year it will take place from Sept. 20-25, overlapping the broadcast network’s premiere week – the festival regularly features premieres of new fall series. This year, the festival will open with the new ABC drama Detroit 1-8-7 starring Michael Imperioli and will close with the new Fox comedy from Mitch Hurwitz and Will Arnett Running Wilde. Also featured at this year’s event are the premiere of IFC’s “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret” with David Cross, the US premiere of BBC America’s miniseries “Luther” as well as screenings of NBC’s “Short Cuts” hosted by Greg Giraldo. Previous series premieres at the festival have included ABC’s Modern Family and Pushing Daisies and NBC’s Chuck. The festival, which once again will feature the IFC/MTV independent pilot competition and the Fox comedy script contest, takes place at the SVA Theatre and Tribeca Cinemas in Manhattan.
