Missing Shows? NBC Reveals Plans for Midseason 2018-19 Schedule

NBC has announced a lot of cancellations and renewals in the past few days. Today, the peacock network issued their schedule for the fall portion of the 2018-19 season. A few renewed shows were notably missing -- AP Bio, The Blacklist, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Ellen's Game of Games, Good Girls, The Wall, and World of Dance -- and a subsequent press release noted they'd be returning midseason. This is a good indication that these shows probably won't have full (20+ episode) season orders. New midseason shows will include America’s Got Talent: The Champions, Abby's, The Enemy Within, The InBetween, The Titan Games, and The Village. Decisions on the fates of Timeless and Champions have not been made as yet.Here's the relevant portion of the press release:Read More…

NBC Fall Schedule: Where's Brooklyn Nine-Nine?!

NBC is the first major broadcaster to announce when fans can expect their favorite shows to be airing during the 2018-2019 season.

The biggest omission is Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which NBC saved just days after Fox swung the ax on it. While it never made the cut for the fall schedule, it will return to the schedule in 2019.

Meanwhile, Chicago Med and Fire will join Chicago Pd on Wednesday nights. Yes, fans will be able to watch the Chicago trifecta back-to-back on one night.

While it may seem like overkill, the shows have proven to have loyal fanbases that will follow them anywhere on the schedule.

In addition, it will be great for marketing purposes when all three shows cross over.

Law & Order: Svu is on the move to Thursday nights to replace the freshly relocated Chicago Med.

New comedy half hour, I Feel Bad joins the network's funny comedy line-up.

  • Variety
Unveiling its fall 2018-2019 schedule, NBC is giving freshman medical drama “New Amsterdam” a big vote of confidence.

The new series will launch on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. this fall, immediately after ratings powerhouse “This Is Us.” The series stars “The Blacklist” alum Ryan Eggold and is based on New York’s historic Bellevue hospital.

“The ‘New Amsterdam’ pilot knocked us over,” NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt said in a conference call Sunday. “We loved it in the development stage. It just came together beautifully.”

“It has a very unique doctor in a world where there’s a few medical shows out there,” he continued, specifically citing NBC’s “Chicago Med” and ABC’s freshman hit “The Good Doctor” as examples.

Fellow new drama “Manifest” will also get a strong lead-in, airing at 10 p.m. on Mondays following “The Voice.” The series, from executive producer Robert Zemeckis, is a mystery

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’: NBC Boss Reveals Why He Saved the Show, and When It Will Be Back

NBC would have never let its sister studio sell “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” to Fox had the network known Andy Samberg would ultimately be cast in the lead role. That’s one of the reasons the network was quick to grab the show when Fox cancelled it last week, according to NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt.

“He didn’t sign on until it was already set up [at Fox],” Greenblatt told reporters on Sunday morning. “We thought it was a missed opportunity from the beginning. We kept encouraging Fox to build it and schedule it right and do right by it, and I guess they came to a place they couldn’t keep it on. We jumped on it really quickly.

“We think it fits into our brand of comedy in many ways better than it ever fit on Fox… It all feels like it goes along side shows like ‘A.P. Bio,’ ‘Will & Grace,

NBC’s Fall Schedule: ‘Manifest’ to Follow ‘The Voice,’ ‘New Amsterdam’ Scores ‘This Is Us’ Lead-In

NBC revealed its fall schedule on Sunday, giving new dramas “Manifest” and “New Amsterdam” prime real estate. The Robert Zemeckis-produced “Manifest” will get the coveted post-“Voice” timeslot on Mondays, while “New Amsterdam” will finish off Tuesdays behind “This Is Us'” junior season.

On Wednesdays, NBC will go with an all-Chicago lineup of Dick Wolf procedurals, with “Chicago Med,” “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago P.D.” Wolf’s other’s drama, the long running “Law & Order: Svu” will move to Thursdays at 10 p.m. for its landmark 20th season.

“Once again, we are coming into the season from a place of strength and stability, which makes us bullish about a scheduling strategy that delivers top-notch original programming not just in the fall, but year round,” said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “We have a very strong fall schedule, as always, but winter, spring and summer are every bit as important to us, and this year we’re putting our talent and our money where our mouth is. This schedule builds on the type of programming that makes NBC #1 year after year: bold, humanistic, compelling dramas; an unmatched collection of the highest-quality unscripted shows for the entire family; and one of the strongest comedy lineups on television that is unique to the legacy of the NBC brand.”

Greenblatt continued: “I continue to be proud of the pedigree of talent on both sides of the camera, from global superstars and producers like Dwayne Johnson, Jennifer Lopez and Simon Cowell, to comedy legends like Amy Poehler and the cast of ‘Will & Grace’ and the many others who call NBC their home,” continued Greenblatt. “This roster is a testament to our incredible NBC programming presidents — Paul Telegdy, Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta — whose teams are on the front lines of the best programming in the world.”

NBC will have one new comedy during the fall in “I Feel Bad” which will lead out of “Will & Grace” at 9:30 p.m., with “Superstore” and “The Good Place” making up the 8 p.m. hour.

The newly-revived “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” will return during midseason, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s competition series “The Titan Games” will have its run on Wednesday nights during the winter. “America’s Got Talent” will expands beyond the summer for its all-star edition, airing sometime in the winter.

“In the fall, our continued success with ‘The Voice’ and ‘This Is Us’ will provide great lead-ins for our strong new dramas, and our two-hour Thursday night comedy block is becoming one of our strongest in years with returning favorites ‘Superstore,’ ‘The Good Place’ and ‘Will & Grace,’ plus a great new family comedy from Aseem Batra and Amy Poehler,” said Jeff Bader, President, Program Planning, Strategy and Research, NBC Entertainment. “Our mid-season strategy is one of our most aggressive to date, building off A-list talent and brands in the alternative space – including the first-ever in-season run of ‘America’s Got Talent’ – to anchor a schedule that will buoy sophomore shows like ‘A.P. Bio’ and ‘Good Girls’ as well as launch additional shows from our strong crop of pilots.”

New Drama Series

The Enemy Within

In this fast-paced, spy-hunting thriller, Erica Shepherd (Jennifer Carpenter) is a brilliant former CIA operative, now known as the most notorious traitor in American history serving life in a Supermax prison. Against every fiber of his being but with nowhere else to turn, FBI Agent Will Keaton (Morris Chestnut) enlists Shepherd to help track down a fiercely dangerous and elusive criminal she knows all too well. For Keaton, it’s not easy to trust the woman who cost him so much. While Shepherd and Keaton have different motivations for bringing the enemy to justice, they both know that to catch a spy… they must think like one.

The cast includes Jennifer Carpenter, Morris Chestnut, Raza Jaffrey and Kelli Garner.

Ken Woodruff will write and executive produce. Mark Pellington will direct and executive produce the pilot. Vernon Sanders also executive produces. “The Enemy Within” is produced by Universal Television.

“The Inbetween”

Cassie Bishop was born with a gift, though she may call it a curse. She can see and communicate with the dead, helping them with their unresolved problems … whether she likes it or not. When her longtime friend Det. Tom Hackett and his new partner, former FBI Agent Damien Asante, need help solving a darkly puzzling murder, Cassie agrees to use her abilities. Despite her reluctance, she may have found a way to keep her demons at bay, all while solving some of the city’s most challenging cases. From writer/executive producer Moira Kirland (“Castle,” “Madam Secretary”) comes this suspenseful, new character-driven procedural drama.

The cast includes Harriet Dyer, Anne-Marie Johnson, Cindy Luna, Chad James Buchanan and Paul Blackthorne.

Moira Kirland will write and executive produce. Charlotte Sieling will direct and executive produce the pilot. David Heyman and Nancy Cotton also executive produce. “The InBetween” is produced by Universal Television, NBCU International Television Studio and Heyday Television.

“Manifest”

When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved. Yet in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years and their friends, families and colleagues, after mourning their loss, had given up hope and moved on. Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible. From Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke comes an emotionally rich, unexpected journey into a world grounded in hope, heart and destiny.

The cast includes Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina and Parveen Kaur.

Jeff Rake will write and executive produce. David Frankel will direct and executive produce the pilot. Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke also executive produce. “Manifest” is produced by Warner Bros. Television and Compari Entertainment.

“New Amsterdam”

Inspired by Bellevue, the oldest public hospital in America, this unique medical drama follows the brilliant and charming Dr. Max Goodwin, the institution’s newest medical director who sets out to tear up the bureaucracy and provide exceptional care. How can he help? Well, the doctors and staff have heard this before. Not taking “no” for an answer, Dr. Goodwin must disrupt the status quo and prove he will stop at nothing to breathe new life into this understaffed, underfunded and underappreciated hospital — the only one in the world capable of treating Ebola patients, prisoners from Rikers and the President of the United States under one roof — and return it to the glory that put it on the map.

The cast includes Ryan Eggold, Freema Agyeman, Janet Montgomery, Jocko Sims, Anupam Kher and Tyler Labine.

David Schulner will write and executive produce. Kate Dennis will direct and executive produce the pilot. Peter Horton also executive produces. Dr. Eric Manheimer will produce. “New Amsterdam” is produced by Universal Television, Pico Creek Productions and Mount Moriah.

“The Village”

Welcome to the Village, an apartment building in Brooklyn that appears like any other from the outside but is quite unique inside. The people who reside here have built a bonded family of friends and neighbors. Sarah’s a nurse and single mom raising a creative teen; Gabe’s a young law student who got a much older and unexpected roommate; Ava must secure the future of her young, U.S.-born son when Ice comes knocking; Nick’s a veteran who’s returned from war; and the heart and soul of the building, Ron and Patricia, have captivating tales all their own. These are the hopeful, heartwarming and challenging stories of life that prove family is everything — even if it’s the one you make with the people around you.

The cast includes Moran Atias, Dominic Chianese, Warren Christie, Frankie Faison, Jerod Haynes, Daren Kagasoff, Michaela McManus, Lorraine Toussaint and Grace Van Dien.

Mike Daniels will write and executive produce. Minkie Spiro will direct and executive produce the pilot. Jessica Rhoades also executive produces. “The Village” is produced by Universal Television and 6107 Productions.

New Comedy Series

“Abby’S”

From the producers of “The Good Place” comes a hilariously aspirational new comedy about the best bar in San Diego, home to good prices, great company and, of course, Abby. This unlicensed, makeshift bar nestled in her backyard is the opposite of everything annoying about today’s party scene. There are rules at Abby’s: no cell phones (not even to “look something up”), earning a seat at the bar takes time and losing a challenge means drinking a limey, sugary “not-beer” drink. As the oddball cast of regulars will tell you, hanging out at Abby’s is a coveted honor. But once you’re in, you’re family.

The cast includes Natalie Morales, Nelson Franklin, Kimia Behpoornia, Jessica Chaffin, Leonard Ouzts and Neil Flynn.

Josh Malmuth will write and executive produce. Pamela Fryman will direct and executive produce the pilot. Michael Schur and David Miner also executive produce. “Abby’s” is produced by Universal Television, Fremulon and 3 Arts Entertainment.

“I Feel Bad”

Emet is the perfect mom, boss, wife, friend and daughter. Ok, she’s not perfect. In fact, she’s just figuring it out like the rest of us. Sure, she feels bad when she has a sexy dream about someone other than her husband, or when she pretends not to know her kids when they misbehave in public, or when she uses her staff to help solve personal problems. But that’s Ok, right? Nobody can have it all and do it perfectly. From executive producer Amy Poehler comes a modern comedy about being perfectly Ok with being imperfect.

The cast includes Sarayu Blue, Paul Adelstein, Aisling Bea, Zach Cherry, Johnny Pemberton and James Buckley.

Aseem Batra will write and executive produce. Julie Anne Robinson will direct and executive produce the pilot. Amy Poehler, Dave Becky and Josh Maurer also executive produce. “I Feel Bad” is produced by Universal Television, Paper Kite Productions, CannyLads Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment.

New Alternative Series

“The Titan Games”

Inspired by Dwayne Johnson’s desire to motivate global audiences to reach their potential both mentally and physically, this inspiring new reality series offers everyday people the opportunity to step inside the Titan arena and achieve the impossible. Every episode, six contenders compete against one of six reigning Titans. They will be challenged in incredible, head-to-head battles designed to test the mind, body and heart of our competitors. Sheer brute strength won’t be enough. If a contender rises to the occasion and defeats one of the Titans, they take their place and join the elite Titan group. But once one becomes a Titan, they must be victorious every week to keep their spot. In the epic season finale, Titans battle it out against one another in the hope of becoming the last male and female standing.

Dwayne Johnson, Arthur Smith, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia, Brian Gewirtz and Toby Gorman executive produce. “The Titan Games” is produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio, A. Smith & Co. Productions and Seven Bucks Productions.

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Season 6: Fans Will Have to Wait Until Midseason for NBC Premiere
The extended “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” squad members who pushed for their favorite broadcast TV comedy to be saved will have to wait until midseason for the show’s Season 6 premiere on NBC. We do not yet have a date, evening, or time slot — whatever, it’s still coming back!

NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt spoke all about his heroics on Sunday during the network’s annual pre-upfronts conference call.

“We jumped on it really quickly,” he explained when asked about the day-later timing of the pickup. “And we’re thrilled to have it.”

“If I knew Andy Samberg was gonna be cast in that show, we probably would never have sold it to Fox,” Greenblatt said. “He didn’t sign on until after [we sold it to Fox], and we thought it was a missed opportunity from the beginning.”
