    Midseason Moves Include Spy Thriller ‘Allegiance’ in Thursday Post-‘Blacklist’ Timeslot and ‘Bible’ Follow-Up Miniseries ‘A.D.’ to Launch on Easter Sunday

    NEW YORK — May 11, 2014 — Coming off a season in which the network catapulted to No. 1 in the 18-49 demo and saw double-digit improvement in many prominent timeslots, NBC has announced a line-up of popular returning series, inventive new comedies, compelling new dramas and season seven of the Emmy Award-winning musical competition series “The Voice.”

    NBC is on track to win the traditional September-to-May primetime season in adults 18-49 for the first time in 10 years. In “most current” averages through the season’s first 32 weeks, NBC’s 2.8 rating in 18-49 is up +17% versus one year ago, making it the network’s top average at this point in the season in five years, according to Nielsen Media Research.

    NBC is also #1 for the season if its nights of Sochi Olympic coverage are excluded from its averages (giving it a 2.6 rating through 32 weeks, versus a 2.5 for #2 Fox). Also, NBC’s regular line-ups are up versus last season on five of seven nights of the week and even with last year on a sixth, while Sunday night is down just 2%.

    In total viewers, NBC is up +35% to 9.4 million persons, its biggest overall audience at this point in the season in eight years. NBC ranks #2 in total viewers, marking the first time in 10 years the network has ranked higher than #4 at this point. Excluding its nights of Sochi Olympic coverage, NBC still ranks #2 for the season in total viewers and is up +21% versus a year ago to 8.5 million viewers.

    Highlights of the just-announced year-round schedule, which will be bolstered by the Feb. 1 Super Bowl, include a pair of comedies — “Bad Judge” and “Mission Control” — from the brilliant and warped minds of Will Ferrell and Adam McKay; “Marry Me,” the new series from “Happy Endings” creator David Caspe; “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” from the Emmy Award-winning team behind “30 Rock” — Tina Fey and Robert Carlock; and projects from Ellen DeGeneres and the producing team of Rashida Jones and Will McCormack.

    On the drama side, Emmy and SAG Award winner Debra Messing stars as a cop balancing her job and stressful home life in “The Mysteries of Laura”; Katherine Heigl returns to television as a high-level CIA analyst in “State of Affairs”; Hope Davis is forced to choose between family and country in the riveting modern-day spy drama “Allegiance”; a wildly popular DC Comics character gets a primetime makeover in “Constantine”; and NBC’s lineup of A-list producers includes Joe Carnahan, Peter Horton, Greg Berlanti and David S. Goyer.

    The new drama additions are “Allegiance,” “Constantine,” “The Mysteries of Laura,” “Odyssey” and “State of Affairs.”

    The new comedy additions are “A to Z,” “Bad Judge,” “Marry Me,” “Mission Control,” “Mr. Robinson,” “One Big Happy” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”

    Returning scripted programming includes “About a Boy,” “The Blacklist,” “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.,” “Grimm,” “Hannibal,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” “Parenthood” and “Parks and Recreation.”

    Returning alternative series include “America Ninja Warrior,” “America’s Got Talent,” “Celebrity Apprentice,” “Hollywood Game Night” and “The Voice.”

    Previously announced new event series will also join the year-round line-up, including “Emerald City,” “Aquarius,” “A.D.” and “Heroes Reborn.”

    “We had a stellar year in scripted programming development that resulted in the unprecedented number of new original series joining the line-up during the coming year, which spans from September 2014-September 2015,” said Bob Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “I’m inordinately proud of NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke and Paul Telegdy, President of Alternative and Late Night Programming, for delivering such a high volume of new quality programming to augment a line-up that has begun to show strong signs of solidification.

    “We have grown substantially year-to-year, even factoring out the boost from the Olympics, to get us to #1 in the 18-49 demo and #2 in total households. The overall goal was to maintain stability from our growing number of anchor shows, while, at the same time, striving to make every show an event — a guiding principle of our development strategy. And reinvigorating Thursday was a top priority, made possible by moving ‘The Blacklist’ there in the 9 p.m. timeslot after exposing it to the audience watching the Super Bowl.

    “The multi-pronged strategy behind moving ‘The Blacklist,’ which has shown enormous linear ratings and record time-shifting, is to not only enliven our Thursday night lineup but also create two desirable timeslots — lead-outs from ‘The Voice’ (8-10 p.m. Monday) and ‘The Blacklist’ (9-10 p.m. Thursday).”

    Said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment: “Comedy is very important to this network, which is why we are launching new series on Tuesdays following ‘The Voice’ and on Thursdays in the fall as CBS frees up some of the comedy audience when it turns to NFL football. Furthermore, we have several of our strongest comedies by some of our best auspices being held for midseason, including the final season of ‘Parks and Recreation,’ Tina Fey and Robert Carlock’s ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,’ the Ellen DeGeneres-produced ‘One Big Happy,’ and ‘Mission Control’ from Will Farrell and Adam McKay. We also have the previously announced ‘Mr. Robinson,’ starring Craig Robinson.

    “On the drama front, no fewer than seven new series and two new event miniseries will bolster a line-up that already includes three Dick Wolf shows (‘Law & Order: SVU,’ ‘Chicago Fire,’ ‘Chicago P.D.’), the final season of ‘Parenthood,’ plus ‘Grimm’ and ‘Hannibal.’ And, of course, we bring back ‘The Blacklist,’ the most successful new show on broadcast television. A trio of sophisticated new 10 p.m. dramas — ‘State of Affairs’ (starring Katherine Heigl), ‘Allegiance’ and ‘Odyssey’ — have a cinematic look and feel, as well as compelling action storylines. Part of NBC’s legacy is its strength in drama, and we’re extremely proud of both our rich history and what’s ahead.

    “In addition, we have several attention-getting events, such as ‘The Bible’ sequel ‘A.D.,’ from Mark Burnett and Roma Downey; ‘Aquarius,’ which marks David Duchovny’s return to broadcast television as a cop on the hunt for Charles Manson; and a 13-episode reboot of the popular series ‘Heroes,’ titled ‘Heroes Reborn.’

    “There is unprecedented enthusiasm that our turnaround will continue in a big way. As we aggressively schedule on a year-round basis, our goal remains to provide an exciting and vital line-up of unprecedented original programming.”

    “NBC is clearly building upon its success of the season with this new schedule,” said Jordan Wertlieb, President, Hearst Television and current Chair of the NBC Affiliate Board, “The stability of the lineup coupled with a terrific development slate will excite NBC affiliates and advertisers.”

    2014-15 SERIES DESCRIPTIONS

    NEW COMEDIES

    A TO Z


    This is the A-to-Z story of Andrew (Ben Feldman, “Mad Men”) and Zelda (Cristin Milioti, “How I Met Your Mother”) — a pair that almost wasn’t — and all that happened from the day they met. Andrew has always been a secret romantic … not above crooning to Celine Dion while driving to work, with dreams of finding “the one.” He imagines her to be just like that shimmering beauty he spotted that night in that silver dress at that concert two years ago. Zelda, having grown up with a hippie mom who believed the universe would provide for everything, rebelled into a no-nonsense practical lawyer who prefers the control of online dating. But when a computer glitch sends her a total mismatch, she’s asked to come in for an interview at the Internet dating site where Andrew works, and this is where it all begins. Andrew and Zelda meet for the first time and despite their differences, sparks fly. She thinks it’s chance. He thinks it’s fate. After all, he’s convinced she’s the shimmering girl in the silver dress. Is it true love forever or just a detour in destiny?

    The cast also includes Henry Zebrowski, Lenora Crichlow, Christina Kirk and Katey Sagal (narrator).

    Writers Ben Queen (“Drive”), Rashida Jones (“Parks and Recreation”) and Will McCormack (“Will & Grace”) serve as executive producers. “A to Z” is a production of Warner Bros. Television and Le Train Train.

    BAD JUDGE

    No excuses, no apologies, no compromises. Wild child Rebecca Wright (Kate Walsh, “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Private Practice”) knows how to have a good time, but she also happens to be one of L.A.’s toughest and most respected criminal court judges. She has a reputation for unorthodox behavior in the courtroom, including creative rulings and saying exactly what’s on her mind. Her private life, on the other hand, is anything but innocent. She parties too much and rocks out on the drums in a band with her best friend, Jenny. While there’s no shortage of male admirers who would love to spend time with her, she’s not ready to settle down … except when an 8-year-old boy — whose parents were put in jail by Rebecca — needs her help. He may, in fact, be the one thing that starts to tame this “bad” judge.

    The cast also includes John Ducey, Tone Bell and Theodore Barnes.

    Writer Chad Kultgen (“The Incredible Burt Wonderstone”) serves as executive producer with Adam McKay (“Anchorman,” “Talladega Nights”), Will Ferrell (“Step Brothers”), Anne Heche (“Men in Trees”), Jill Sobel Messick (“Baby Mama”), Kevin Messick (“The Other Guys”) and Kate Walsh. “Bad Judge” is a production of Universal Television and Gary Sanchez Productions.

    MARRY ME

    Six years ago, Annie (Casey Wilson, “Happy Endings”) and Jake (Ken Marino, “Eastbound & Down”) bonded over their mutual love of nachos and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Now, after returning from a romantic two-week island vacation, Jake’s all set to pop the question. Before he can ask, though, Annie lets loose on Jake for his inability to commit. She was expecting him to “put a ring on it” in paradise and now Jake’s perfect proposal is ruined. Not wanting to spend the next 60 years talking about that mess of a proposal, Jake and Annie decide to hold off on the engagement until they can do it right. Yet if history tells us anything, it’s when we really want things to go right that they all tend to go wrong. The only thing we know for sure is these two are destined to be together whether they can get it together or not.


    The cast also includes Sarah Wright, John Gemberling, Tymberlee Hill and Tim Meadows.

    Writer David Caspe (“Happy Endings”) and director Seth Gordon (“The Goldbergs”) serve as executive producer with Jamie Tarses (“Men At Work”). “Marry Me” is a production of Sony Pictures Television and FanFare Productions.

    MISSION CONTROL


    Houston, we have a problem! Dr. Mary Kendricks (Krysten Ritter, “Don’t Trust The B--- in Apartment 23”) is a tough but brilliant aerospace engineer, leading a team of NASA scientists at the cutting edge of space exploration. The only problem is, this is the 1960s and she’s a woman. Navigating the ridiculous boys’ club of astronauts and engineering nerds is no easy task, but she’s up to the challenge … until her boss brings on Tom (Tommy Dewey, “The Mindy Project”) — a former hotshot test pilot and overall man’s man — to co-manage her team. It doesn’t help that he initially mistakes her for a secretary. Between him, her astronaut boyfriend, Cash, and her offbeat all-guy team, Mary certainly has her hands full… but at the end of the day, they all want the same thing: to get a man on the moon. It might just take a woman to get him there.

    The cast also includes Malcolm Barrett, Jonathan Slavin and Julie Meyer.

    Writer David Hornsby serves as executive producer with Adam McKay (“Anchorman,” “Talladega Nights”), Will Ferrell (“Step Brothers”) and Owen Burke. “Mission Control” is a production of Universal Television and Gary Sanchez Productions.

    MR. ROBINSON

    As lead singer and keyboardist of a rock band, Craig (Craig Robinson, “The Office”) knows a thing or two about working the crowd, but his day job is where he really makes the grade. Every struggling artist knows the drill: you got to pay the bills while you wait for that big break. So when Craig finds himself short on cash, he takes a job as a substitute teacher. It’s an easy gig, right? Throw a DVD in the player, dim the lights and sleep off last night’s party. Yet when he realizes that the kids think his class is an easy A, Craig’s moved to inspire his students. Music is his passion and he’s not about to let anyone sleep though this period … period. The school principal (Jean Smart, “Samantha Who?”) is a woman who believes that rules were made to be strictly upheld. She’s none too fond of Craig’s unorthodox teaching style, or his crush on the pretty English teacher. If he wants to keep his gig, get the girl and teach these kids the joys of music, he’ll have to buckle down, shape up and rock out.

    The cast also includes Ben Koldyke and Amandla Stenberg.

    Writers Mark Cullen (“Back In The Game”) and Robb Cullen (“Back In The Game”) serve as executive producers with Howard Klein (“Parks and Recreation”) and Mark Schulman (“Chelsea Lately”). “Mr. Robinson” is a production of Universal Television and 3 Arts Entertainment.

    ONE BIG HAPPY

    Best friends Lizzy (gay and a bit type-A) and Luke (straight and more laid back) are like family. When they were kids and both of their parents were getting divorces, Lizzy (Elisha Cuthbert, “Happy Endings”) and Luke (Nick Zano, “2 Broke Girls”) stuck together, and they’ve been there for each other ever since. Now, all grown up and still single, they’ve decided to start a family of their own. No, not like that (there are some lines even they won’t cross), we’re talking the non-romantic, go-to-the-doctor’s-office type of baby-making. Then one night, after yet another failed attempt at conception, the two head out to a bar to let off some steam. That’s where Luke meets Prudence (Kelly Brook, “Smallville”), a free-spirited British girl who’s slated to go back to England in a matter of days. Lizzy isn’t a huge fan — it might have something to do with Prudence waltzing around their apartment naked — but Luke really hits it off with her. Soon they’re spending every last minute of her limited time together. Then, just as Lizzy discovers that she’s actually pregnant, Luke announces that he and Prudence got married and a different kind of family is born.

    The cast also includes Brandon Smith, Rebecca Corry and Chris Williams.

    Writer Liz Feldman (“2 Broke Girls”) and director Scott Ellis (“2 Broke Girls”) serve as executive producers with Ellen DeGeneres (“The Ellen DeGeneres Show”) and Jeff Kleeman (“The Change Up”). “One Big Happy” is a production of Warner Bros. Television and A Very Good Production.

    UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT

    After 15 years of living in a cult, the unbreakable and wide-eyed Kimmy (Ellie Kemper, “The Office”) is rescued along with four other women, causing a national sensation that culminates with an appearance on the ”Today” show. Before getting back on the bus to Indiana, however, Kimmy decides it’s time to reclaim her life. Armed with just a backpack, light-up sneakers, a couple way-past-due library books and a big wad of rescue-fund cash, she’s ready to take on New York City. It’s easily the best time of Kimmy’s life as she rides subways, plays with street performers, frees Central Park horses and makes a spontaneous decision to rent a room from Titus, a gay wannabe Broadway actor who makes a living dressing as a robot in Times Square. This unlikely pairing may not seem ideal, but it quickly becomes clear that they can really help each other out: Kimmy needs someone to reintroduce her to the modern world, and Titus could use someone to show him that you should never give up on life, no matter how many times you get rejected from performing in “The Lion King.” As long as they stick together… they might just make it after all. Hakuna matata!

    The cast also includes Tituss Burgess, Sara Chase and Lauren Adams.

    Writers Tina Fey (“30 Rock”) and Robert Carlock (“30 Rock”) serve as executive producers with David Miner (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) and Jeff Richmond (“30 Rock”).

    “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” is a production of Universal Television, Little Stranger Inc. and 3 Arts Entertainment.

    NEW DRAMAS

    A.D.


    In the follow-up to the eye-opening success of “The Bible” miniseries on History, the 12-hour miniseries “A.D.” — from producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey — will look at the lives that were instantly altered following the death of Christ. His disciples, mother Mary and key political religious leaders at the time saw their world turned upside down and their lives forever altered. Beginning at that fateful moment of the Crucifixion and the Resurrection, part two of the greatest story ever told will focus on the disciples who had to go forward and disseminate the teachings of Christ to a world dominated by political unrest and the start of a whole new religion that would dramatically reshape the history of the world.

    Mark Burnett, Roma Downey and Richard Bedser serve as executive producers. Simon Block will write the script. “A.D.” is a production of LightWorkers Media.


    ALLEGIANCE

    Alex O’Connor (Gavin Stenhouse, “Person Of Interest”), a young idealistic CIA analyst specializing in Russian affairs, learns a shocking secret and his close-knit, affluent family is about to be split apart when its revealed that his parents, Mark (Scott Cohen, “Necessary Roughness”) and Katya (Hope Davis, “The Newsroom,” “In Treatment”) are covert Russian spies deactivated decades ago. But today the Kremlin has re-enlisted them into service as they plan a terrorist operation inside the U.S. border that will bring America to its knees. Years ago, Russian-born Katya was tasked by the KGB to recruit American businessman Mark O’Connor as a spy -- and the two fell in love. A deal was struck: As long as Katya remained an asset for Russia, and it was agreed that her services could be called on in the future, she would be allowed to marry Mark and move to America. After years in America building a happy life and without word from Moscow, they thought they had escaped. Now it seems that the new Mother Russia has one more mission — turning Alex into a spy. For these anguished parents, The Choice is clear: Betray their country or risk their family.

    The cast also includes Margarita Levieva, Morgan Spector, Annie Ilonzeh, Alexandra Peters and Kenneth Choi.

    Writer-director George Nolfi (“The Adjustment Bureau”) serves as executive producer with Avi Nir (“Homeland”), Ron Leshem, Amit Cohen, Yona Wisenthal and Giyora Yahalom. “Allegiance” is a production of Universal Television, Keshet Media and Yes!

    AQUARIUS

    It’s 1967 and the era of free love, drug experimentation and the Vietnam War is in full effect. When the teenage daughter of a respected lawyer goes missing, L.A. Police Sgt. Sam Hodiak (David Duchovny, “Californication,” “The X-Files”) starts asking around. He soon discovers that the hippie kids he’s questioning don’t take kindly to COPS, especially one with hair as short as his. Needing the help of someone they will trust, he partners with rebellious undercover cop Brian Shafe, a man who’s more comfortable rolling a joint than patrolling a beat. It’s not long before they stumble upon a small-time cult leader seeking out vulnerable women to join his cause. From there, they follow this man’s trail down a rabbit hole of drugs, sex, murder and cultural revolution. Little could they know, however, the guy they’re hunting will eventually become the killer we now recognize as Charles Manson. He was a lost soul who desperately wanted to get into the music scene of the ’60s until something snapped. This is the show that will explore the cat and mouse game between him and the police that will Go On for several seasons, ultimately ending with the Infamous Tate-LaBianca murders.

    Writer John McNamara (“In Plain Sight”) serves as executive producer with Marty Adelstein (“Prison Break”), David Duchovny and Melanie Greene. “Aquarius” is a production of ITV Studios America and Marty Adelstein Productions.

    CONSTANTINE

    Based on the wildly popular DC Comics series “Hellblazer,” seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, “Criminal Minds”) specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths, “True Blood”), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight” — an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict Supernatural occurrences — is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. Now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.

    The cast also includes Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford.

    Writer Daniel Cerone (“The Mentalist,” “Dexter”) serves as executive producer with David S. Goyer (“Man of Steel,” “The Dark Knight Rises”). “Constantine” is produced from Bonanza Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The show is based upon characters published by DC Entertainment.

    EMERALD CITY

    Desperate for clues that will lead to the identity of her biological mother, a young woman breaks into a sinister underground facility somewhere in the Midwest. Unable to complete her mission and surrounded by security, our feisty heroine steals a K9 police dog and drives away into the night… and headlong into the path of a raging tornado. In the blink of an eye, she is transported to another world, one far removed from our own — a mystical land of competing kingdoms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy. This is the fabled Land of Oz in a way you’ve never seen before, where wicked witches don’t stay dead for long and 20-year-old Dorothy Gale becomes a headstrong warrior who holds the fate of kingdoms in her hands. You’re not in Kansas anymore, and this is not your Grandmother’s Oz.

    Writer Matthew Arnold (“Siberia”) serves as executive producer with Josh Friedman (“Terminator” The Sarah Connor Chronicles”). “Emerald City” is a production of Universal Television.


    HEROES REBORN

    The saga behind the 2006 breakout series “Heroes” will continue as creator Tim Kring returns to the fold and develops new layers to his original superhero concept. This highly anticipated 13-episode miniseries will reconnect with the basic elements of the show’s first season where ordinary people were waking up to the fact that they had extraordinary abilities. This series will be preceded by a new digital series that will introduce audiences to the new characters and storylines that will take the “Heroes” phenomenon to new places.


    THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA

    Debra Messing (“Will & Grace”) stars as Laura Diamond, a brilliant NYPD homicide detective who balances her “Columbo” day job with a crazy family life that includes two unruly twin boys and a soon-to-be ex-husband (Josh Lucas) — also a cop — who just can’t seem to sign the divorce papers. Between cleaning up after her boys and cleaning up the streets, she’d be the first to admit she has her “hot mess” moments in this hilariously authentic look at what it really means to be a “working mom” today. Somehow, she makes it all work with the help of her sexy and understanding partner, and things becomes even more complicated when her husband, ironically, becomes her boss at the precinct. For Laura, every day is a high-wire balancing act.

    The cast also includes Laz Alonso and Janina Gavankar.

    Writer Jeff Rake (“Boston Legal”) and director McG (“Supernatural”) serve as executive producer with Greg Berlanti (“Brothers & Sisters”), Aaron Kaplan (“The Neighbors”), Todd Lituchy and Sarah Schechter. “The Mysteries of Laura” is a production of Warner Bros.

    ODYSSEY

    In this “Traffic”-like action drama, an international conspiracy explodes when three strangers’ lives unexpectedly collide — a female soldier, a corporate lawyer and a political activist. After a team of American soldiers battles Jihadists in North Africa, they’re shocked to find that one of the men they killed is Al Qaeda’s top man. Sgt. Odelle Ballard (Anna Friel, “Pushing Daisies”) — a soldier, mother, wife and the unit’s only female member — discovers computer files that suggest a major U.S. corporation is funding the Jihadists. But before she can tell anyone, her team is attacked and left for dead. News is reported that the unit was wiped out, but the truth is that Odelle survived and is the only witness to her unit’s assassination by U.S. Special Forces. In New York, former U.S. Attorney Peter Decker (Peter Facinelli, “Nurse Jackie”) is working on a merger deal for the same company that was funneling money to the Jihadists. Meanwhile, Harrison Walters (Jake Robinson, “The Carrie Diaries”), a political activist and trust fund kid, meets a hacker who claims to have unearthed a massive military-industrial conspiracy. And he’s right: He’s stumbled onto the cover-up that began with Odelle and will soon be out in the open and everyone’s lives will be in danger. The only way they’ll ever save their country, their families and themselves is by joining forces and exposing the people behind it.

    The cast also includes Jim True-Frost, Treat Williams, Nate Mooney, Elena Kampouris, Daniella Pineda, Sadie Sink, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Omar Ghazaoui.

    Writers Adam Armus (“The Following”) and Nora Kay Foster (“Heroes”), and writer-director Peter Horton (“Grey’s Anatomy”) serve as executive producers with Simon Maxwell (“Off the Hook”), Mikkel Bondesen (“Burn Notice”), Henrik Bastin (“Burn Notice) and Kristen Campo (“The Killing”). “Odyssey” is a production of Universal Television, Fabrik Entertainment and Red Arrow Entertainment Group.

    STATE OF AFFAIRS

    Each day the President is faced with dozens of life and death decisions, and to prioritize the biggest international crises facing the country, one top CIA analyst — Charleston Tucker (Katherine Heigl, “Grey’s Anatomy”) — assembles the President’s Daily Briefing (PDB). This list of the most vital security issues facing the nation brings with it moral and political judgment calls for Charleston and her trusted group of brilliant analysts at the agency. Aside from the political minefields she has to walk, Charlie has a close personal relationship with the President (Alfre Woodard, “Desperate Housewives”) because she was once engaged to her son before a tragic terrorist attack took his life. Charlie survived that attack and is now determined to bring the perpetrators to justice. Navigating a complex personal life and a pressure-cooker profession is, of course, a challenge, and Charlie sometimes engages in boundary-pushing behavior to avoid facing her grief. But when the clock strikes 2 a.m., she is all about her job — protecting her nation, serving her President and still trying to get to the bottom of her fiancé’s murder that will reveal itself as a shocking mystery.

    The cast also includes Adam Kaufman, Sheila Vand, Cliff Chamberlain, Tommy Savas and Leslie Odom, Jr.

    Writer-director Joe Carnahan (“The Blacklist”) serves as executive producer with Katherine Heigl, Nancy Heigl, Robert Simonds, Sophie Watts, Henry Crumpton, Rodney Faraon and Julia Franz. “State of Affairs” is a production of Universal Television, Bob Simonds Company and Abishag Productions.

    'The Blacklist' Gets Post Superbowl Spot; Live 'The Music Man' to Air on NBC in 2015

    Written By Sara Bibel
    May 12th, 2014

    During NBC's upfront presentation, NBC president Bob Greenblatt revealed that part one of a two-part episode of The Blacklist will air after the Superbowl on February 1. Part two of the episode will air four days later, when the show moves to its new Thursday at 9PM time period on February 5. NBC has also greenlit a live production of The Music Man which will air in 2015. Last December, the network announced that it will air a live production of Peter Pan during the 2014-15 season.

    NBC ANNOUNCES FALL PREMIERE DATES FOR NEW 2014-15 SEASON

    Both the Second Season of "The Blacklist" and Season Seven of "The Voice," With New Coaches Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani, Launch Sept. 22; Debra Messing's Breezy Drama "The Mysteries of Laura" Begins Sept. 24; Critical and Fan Favorite "Parenthood" Starts Its Final Season Sept. 25; and David Caspe's Comedy "Marry Me" Premieres Oct. 14

    UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - June 2, 2014 - NBC has announced premiere dates for its fall schedule, which include No. 1 broadcast program "Sunday Night Football," the return of No. 1 reality series "The Voice," No. 1 new series "The Blacklist," and the debuts of highly anticipated comedy "Marry Me" and drama "The Mysteries of Laura."

    "Sunday Night Football" launches its campaign on Thursday, Sept. 4 when the Green Bay Packers travel to the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks (8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT). Three days later on Sunday, Sept. 7, the Indianapolis Colts will play at the AFC champion Denver Broncos (8:20 p.m. ET/5:20 p.m. PT). The game will be preceded by the season premiere of "Football Night in America" (7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT).

    "The Biggest Loser," in which contestants lose weight in the hope of restarting their lives, returns for its 16th season Thursday, Sept. 11 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT).

    The Emmy Award-winning musical competition series "The Voice," with coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani, begins its seventh season Monday, Sept. 22 (8-10 p.m.).

    "The Blacklist" returns for its second season Sept. 22 (10-11 p.m.) following "The Voice." "The Blacklist," which stars Emmy winner James Spader as "Red" Reddington, was the top new series last season and helped propel NBC to No. 1 in the 18-49 demo for the first time in 10 years.

    Following a two-hour episode of "The Voice" on Tuesday, Sept. 23, "Chicago Fire" (10-11 p.m.) returns for its third season as the heroic men and women of the Windy City's fire department consistently put their lives in on the line in order to save others.

    Wednesday, Sept. 24 marks the debut of the new Debra Messing series "The Mysteries of Laura" (8-9 p.m.). In this breezy new drama, Messing plays a NYPD detective who must balance her professional life as a cop with her home life as a mother of unruly twin boys and on the cusp of divorce.

    On that same night and back in their familiar Wednesday timeslots, "Law & Order: SVU" (9-10 p.m.), and star Mariska Hargitay, returns for an astonishing 16th season while "Chicago P.D." (10-11 p.m.) comes back for its second season.

    NBC's beloved family drama "Parenthood" begins its sixth and final season Thursday, Sept. 25 (10-11 p.m.).

    Venerable newsmagazine "Dateline NBC" makes its season premiere with a two-hour episode Friday, Sept. 26 (9-11 p.m.).

    Comedy "Bad Judge" begins Thursday, Oct. 2 (9-9:30 p.m.) with Kate Walsh starring as a judge who enjoys living on the wild side, but is one of the most respected jurists when behind the bench. Following "Bad Judge" that night, "A to Z" (9:30 p.m.) makes its debut. The comedy series, which stars Ben Feldman and Cristin Milioti, chronicles the relationship of a young couple from the first time they meet.

    Also on the comedy front, "Marry Me" - from "Happy Endings" executive producer David Caspe, about how a couple's engagement gets off to a rough start - launches Tuesday, Oct. 14 (9-9:30 p.m.). That is immediately followed by Jason Katims' second-year series "About a Boy" (9:30 p.m.), which was one of the most successful new comedies of last season.

    Fan favorite "Grimm" begins its fourth campaign Friday, Oct. 24 (9-10 p.m.), and that will be immediately followed by new series "Constantine" (10-11 p.m.). "Constantine" is based on the wildly popular DC Comics series "Hellblazer" and stars Matt Ryan as master of the occult John Constantine.

    Finally, the highly touted drama "State of Affairs" will begin Monday, Nov. 17 (10-11 p.m.). In the series, Katherine Heigl plays a CIA analyst who, faced with constant moral and political judgment calls, prioritizes the President's Daily Briefing.

    As a reminder, "The Blacklist" will return to NBC's primetime lineup with a two-part episode beginning Sunday, Feb. 1 immediately following the Super Bowl. Part two will air Thursday, Feb. 5 (9-10 p.m.) in its regular midseason timeslot.

    I don't like Grimm, Dominion, or Sleepy Hollow, but I did enjoy the pilot episode of Constantine (leaked to the Internet, just like Flash and Wonder Woman-2011). It reminded a bit of Charmed, though thankfully with a bit more of an edge to it. There are still many goofy moments, but I was able to suspend my disbelief and go along with all the hocus pocus.

    It's hard to tell if I would keep tuning in each week, but the cast seems to be good enough to hold my interest for at least one season (even if/when I begin to tire of the new demon-of-the-week premise).

    Boo! ... but in a good way. :angel:

    Lucy Griffiths' character is being written out of Constantine. A different female character, Zed (not yet cast), will eventually take her place.

    I will miss Lucy (she's apparently only going to remain in the pilot), and if the character of Zed is a dud, I will most likely abandon the series.

    [I loved Lucy, but now she's toast]

    https://uk.movies.yahoo.com/tvs-cons...084200054.html
    [Poor fan reception of Lucy in the leaked Pilot, perhaps led to her being let go]

    It has been announced that Lucy Griffiths, previously announced as one of the lead actors in the NBC TV series of DC's 'Constantine' and featured in the series pilot, will not appear in the subsequent series.

    There has been speculation on fan sites that the move may in part be down to a negative reaction to the character after the pilot episode was leaked online recently, with some murmurs that the character was too similar to Rachel Weisz's role in the divisive 2005 'Constantine' movie, with Keanu Reeves.

    "NBC will not recast the role but instead will add the character of Zed, a familiar name from the 'Constantine' books.

    "Zed, a foil for the show's title character who becomes his right-hand woman, has not yet been cast. She will appear in an early episode of the series, with additional characters from 'Hellblazer' and the occult DC universe to be introduced later. Zed will, however, be the first to appear."
    EDIT: I tried to watch the 2nd episode of Constantine, but without Lucy Griffiths, I was bored senseless (and FF skip-jumped through 95% of it). This is a waste of time for me.

    I watched the pilot episode of A to Z online (NBC.com, Hulu), and found it to be quite charming. It had some laughs, clever editing, and only a few sluggish parts. Katey Sagal's narration also helped to move things along, as well as adding to the charm.

    ‘Wizard Of Oz’-Themed Series ‘Emerald City’ Not Going Forward At NBC
    by Nellie Andreeva
    August 22, 2014 3:09pm

    NBC won’t be heading for Oz. The network has opted not to proceed with Emerald City, its 10-episode Oz-themed drama series, which had been ordered straight-to-series for next season. The project hails from executive producers Matthew Arnold, who originally conceived the idea and penned the original script, and Josh Friedman, who tweaked the pilot script and has been running the writers room. I hear after several backup scripts had been produced, there was a difference in vision between NBC brass and Friedman about what the show should be, leading to NBC’s decision to not go forward with it. Word is that Universal Television, which developed the project and is producing it, is still high on it and may shop it elsewhere.

    Emerald City is described as a modern and dark reimagining of the classic tale of Oz in the vein of Game Of Thrones, drawing upon stories from Baum’s original 14 books that include lethal warriors, competing kingdoms, and the infamous wizard as we’ve never seen him before. A head-strong 20-year-old Dorothy Gale is unwittingly sent on an eye-opening journey that thrusts her into the center of an epic and bloody battle for the control of Oz.

    Taking on high concepts in a straight-to-series format is a tricky proposition. Fox recently also pulled the plug on its Ancient Egypt action adventure series Hieroglyph after filming a pilot and reading several backup scripts.

    "Chicago Fire," "Chicago P.D." and "Law & Order: SVU" Stories Converge with Three-Part Crossover to Air Nov. 11-12
    The three series will share a storyline about a child pornography ring that stretches from Chicago to New York and will arc over three episodes.

    [via press release from NBC]
    "CHICAGO FIRE," "CHICAGO P.D." AND "LAW & ORDER: SVU" STORIES CONVERGE WITH THREE-PART CROSSOVER TO AIR NOV. 11-12

    UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - Sept. 29, 2014 - Dick Wolf's Universal Television/NBC series "Chicago Fire," "Chicago P.D." and "Law & Order: SVU" will be united during a major three-part crossover airing Nov. 11-12.

    The three series will share a storyline about a child pornography ring that stretches from Chicago to New York and will arc over three episodes, beginning with "Chicago Fire" (Tuesday, Nov. 11, 10 p.m. ET/PT) and continuing on "Law & Order: SVU" and "Chicago P.D." (Wednesday, Nov. 12, 9 and 10 p.m., respectively).

    "Warren Leight ("SVU" showrunner) and Matt Olmstead ("Chicago Fire"/"Chicago P.D." showrunner) are two of the best writers in the business. We wanted to figure out a way to create a crime that connects all three shows. Warren, Matt and I came up with a story that was big and unique enough to transit to all three," Wolf explained.

    Each of the three shows opened their seasons to strong ratings, with "Chicago Fire" averaging a 2.6 rating, 8 share in adults 18-49 and 9.1 million viewers overall Tuesday, Sept. 23 to match its second-highest rating ever in 18-49 and deliver its #2 total-viewer result to date. "Law & Order: SVU" debuted Wednesday, Sept. 24 with a 2.2/6 in 18-49 and 10.1 million viewers overall, making it the show's most-watched season premiere since 2007. "Chicago P.D." followed with a 1.9/6 in 18-49 and 8.5 million viewers overall to win the hour among ABC, CBS and NBC in total viewers with the show's biggest overall audience since its series premiere on Jan. 8.

    All three shows are produced by Wolf Films in association with Universal Television. Dick Wolf, Matt Olmstead, Michael Brandt, Derek Haas, Danielle Gelber and Peter Jankowski are executive producers of both "Chicago" series. Dick Wolf, Warren Leight, Julie Martin, Jonathan Starch and Peter Jankowski are executive producers of "Law & Order: SVU."

    Most canadians watching live TV on canadian broadcasters will get to see the conclusion in Chicago PD first, then the "middle part" L&O:SVU last, considering Global airs PD in pre-release for a Stalker simsub, while CTV airs SVU in post-release due to Criminal Minds simsub...

    Come November, Law & Order: SVU will be on CTV Two (by then, Grey's Anatomy will be airing after Criminal Minds on CTV).

    I think you meant to say that Canadian viewers watching live TV on Canadian broadcasters will get to see Chicago Fire first (and not Chicago PD) Tuesday night airing both on Global and NBC
    . Afterwards, they'll have the two shows airing at the same time with Law & Order: SVU (in simulcast with NBC on CTV Two at 9:00pm) and then Chicago PD (pre-NBC on Global also at 9:00pm).

    Good point.

    The Chicago Fire airing is in simulcast, so it was implied it will air first, then the next day, PD will air first and SVU next. Bad wording from my part. But since SVU & PD will air at the same time...

    What a weird promotional stunt ... Just in case you're looking for more exposure to plots about child pornography, NBC has figured out a way to spread that theme to 3 different series. Oh goody, I can hardly wait to cringe.

    I suppose TV scripts dealing with child pornography are considered unique enough (perhaps even groundbreaking if tastefully handled) for NBC to launch such a stunt. If plots about rape and serial killing are becoming too commonplace to attract enough viewers, let's try to expand the shock and disgust factor with child pornography. Okay, but how about temporarily changing the onscreen NBC logo/bug from peacock feathers to something a little more risque during these broadcasts?

    Disclaimer: Just trying to have a little bit of fun with NBC's promotion of a slimy subject matter. I assume that some of the NBC affiliates (like perhaps Utah) might not be too eager to air this kind of content (even at 10pm).

    NBC ... Do you want to see our peacock?
