"Galavant" will premiere during the 2014-15 season. A premiere date has not been announced.

Here's how it's billed by ABC: "Screenwriter/executive producer Dan Fogelman ('Crazy, Stupid, Love,' 'Tangled,' 'Cars') teams up with Broadway and Hollywood award-winning musical team — composer Alan Menken ('The Little Mermaid,' 'Aladdin,' 'Beauty and the Beast') and lyricist Glenn Slater ('Tangled')—for a musical comedy fairytale of epic proportions. Once upon a time, the dashing hero, Galavant (Joshua Sasse), lost the love of his life, Madalena (Mallory Jansen), to the evil King Richard (Timothy Omundson). Now, our fallen hero is ready to take revenge and restore his 'happily ever after.' But it won't be without a few twists and turns along the way."
