'Forever': Ioan Gruffudd is a nosy medical examiner in ABC's new crime drama


Here's what you'll learn in this clip from the pilot of "Forever," a new crime drama ABC will debut on Tuesday nights in fall 2014.

You'll learn that Dr. Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd) is a medical examiner who knows his stuff -- he can see a dead rat and instantly tell it was poisoned. You'll learn that Detective Jo Martinez (Alana de la Garza) is a take-charge kind of person, and that Morgan apparently likes to dive headlong into things where Martinez thinks caution might be wise.

What you won't learn, though, is the hook of the show: Morgan is immortal, and through his job he hopes to figure out why. That seems like fairly important information, no?

The full trailer for the series, however, puts the premise front and center. Take a look:


"Forever" is set to air at 10 p.m. ET/PT Tuesdays in the fall. ABC's full fall 2014 schedule is here.
