"Valor" is outside the box of The CW, which has nothing like it on its schedule.

The CW presents its 2017-18 primetime schedule to advertisers, affiliates, and national media today at the New York City Center in New York City, with the multi-platinum, multi-Grammy Award-winning rock band Muse opening the show with the worldwide debut performance of their new single, "Dig Down".

The girls are now in the capital Abuja being looked after by government officials as they try to adjust back into society. Another girl was found in May 2016 when she wandered out of a Nigerian forest asking for help, according to witnesses.

Speaking to reporters Thursday morning before the network's presentation to advertisers later in the day, network President Mark Pedowitz, Executive Vice President of Sales Rob Tuck and EVP of Marketing & Digital Programming Rick Haskins explained the plan for next season.

Also for fall is the military drama "Valor", following the only two known survivors of "an elite unit of U.S. Army helicopter pilots called the Shadow Raiders" whose secret mission to Somalia "goes terribly awry". Riverdale will now be on Wednesday, along with the new Dynasty reboot while Jane the Virgin and be paired again with Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, this time on Friday nights. Pedowitz said he has been trying to find a military-themed show for many years.

The soap will update the tale of the fabulously wealthy Colbys and Carringtons for a new generation. Rick Haskins, exec VP-marketing and digital programs, said the challenge is similar to The CW's past year with "Riverdale", which is based on the old Archie comics. The show will air Wednesdays at 9p.m. - "two of the most iconic soaps of the 2000s", as Pedowitz put it. Also, it has the blessing of creators Richard and Esther Shapiro; fills the same timeslot it had back on ABC in the '80s; and could even include some vets. For midseason, we have the heartwarming comedy LIFE SENTENCE, starring Lucy Hale, a terrific actress; and we have the exciting new series BLACK LIGHTNING, based on the DC character.
