NBC turning back the clock with new shows
NEW YORK (AP) – NBC is turning to some proven players for next year’s schedule, resurrecting its Heroes franchise, bringing back Craig T. Nelson as Coach again and turning to veteran producer Dick Wolf for a medical drama based in Chicago.
The network is hedging its bets on comedy next fall, although is trying the interesting experiment of airing the sitcom Undateable live each week.
NBC released next season’s schedule Sunday and will present it to advertisers on Monday. This week all of the broadcast networks unveil next year’s plans, hoping to coax advertisers to spend money on their programs.
Network favourites The Voice and The Blacklist are both returning to the schedule.
