ABC Studios is the television production division of Disney-ABC Television Group. ABC Studios was established as Touchstone Television (named after Touchstone Pictures) in 1985 and given its current name in May 2007.

Starting with the 2009-2010 season, all television series produced by ABC Studios now have the wording "An ABC Studios Production" at the start of the in-show credits, while the ABC Studios closing logo was temporarily dropped entirely. This makes ABC Studios the first television production company in the US to feature the company production credit at the beginning of a television program.

In June 2009, ABC Entertainment announced a new organization, effective immediately. In January 2010, Disney-ABC Television Group announced it was cutting 5% of its workforce.
