Change we can believe in indeed.
In one of his first moves since taking the helm of the perennial fourth place Peacock network, NBC Entertainment President Bob Greenblatt has issued official pickups for THE OFFICE, PARKS AND RECREATION and COMMUNITY to return for an eighth, fourth and third season respectively.
According to Greenblatt, “I am so pleased to renew these three outstanding comedies which are all at the top of their game creatively. Along with 30 ROCK [Which incidentally has already been picked up] they represent the best of what the NBC comedy brand stands for in terms of originality, wit, and THE OFFICE continues to fire on all cylinders on the most competitive night of television; PARKS AND RECREATION has come into its own this season as the rightful companion to THE OFFICE; and COMMUNITY is one of the freshest comedies on any network and a solid foundation for Thursday night.”
According to us, all that’s left for newly-minted head honcho Bob Greenblatt to cement his status as best NBC Network President ever are official pick-ups for the highly under-watched and hugely underrated PARENTHOOD and PERFECT COUPLES respectively. We’re just sayin’
