ABC will introduce new shows about a fading country music star, a trapped submarine, alien neighbors and a creepy New York apartment building this fall.

The third-place network ordered 10 new series for next season, six of them dramas. In keeping with the year-round scheduling model now in vogue, only four new shows will start in September.

With "Desperate Housewives" ending its run and the now-cancelled "GCBs" failing to draw a Sunday night audience, ABC will move the soapy drama "Revenge" to Sundays in the fall.

Andre Braugher will star as the captain of a doomed submarine in the new "Last Resort." Connie Britton is the country legend in "Nashville." "666 Park Avenue" is the devilish apartment address, and September's only new comedy is "The Neighbors."
