Former identity Touchstone Television

ABC Studios, formerly "Touchstone Television" and "ABC Television Studio", is an American television production company. Touchstone Television was established in 1985 as a subsidiary of Touchstone Pictures and absorbed ABC Circle Films and its post-1973 library in 1996, when its parent company, The Walt Disney Company purchased ABC.

In February of 2007, Touchstone Television was renamed by Disney to "ABC Television Studio," [1] and in May of the same year established its current identity as ABC Studios.[source needed]

The studio produces television shows for the Disney Channel, ABC and all other ABC/Disney-owned channels (although it has produced shows on rivals NBC and CBS). The company is one of the studios behind Lost, as well as ABC's two other primetime drama hits, Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives. Other shows produced by ABC Studios include the Amazing Race, Alias, and Criminal Minds, among others. Disney's Buena Vista Television manages the syndication of its television programming, including Lost.
