NBC has announced premiere dates — and special preview dates — for two of its new comedies: SUPERSTORE and TELENOVELA.
Both shows are set to debut on Monday, January 4. But NBC is also giving viewers a chance to watch early previews of both shows with two consecutive Mondays in late November and early December behind live episodes of THE VOICE.
On Monday, November 30, two original episodes of the ensemble workplace comedy SUPERSTORE, starring America Ferrera, will air back-to-back beginning at 10:00 p.m. following the two-hour telecast of THE VOICE.
Back-to-back episodes of the behind-the-scenes comedy TELENOVELA, featuring Eva Longoria as the star of a hit Spanish soap opera, will air December 7 beginning at 10:00 p.m. following the penultimate Monday telecast of THE VOICE.
Both series will then make their official launches on Monday, January 4 with SUPERSTORE premiering at 8 p.m. and TELENOVELA at 8:30 p.m.
“We’re extremely excited about SUPERSTORE and are so fortunate to have the incredibly talented America Ferrera, who won over the hearts of viewers and critics in UGLY BETTY, coming to NBC as a producer and star. She’s joined by a terrific ensemble in a comedy set in a location everyone in the country can really relate to,” said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment. “We are also over the moon to have the incomparable ‘desperate housewife’ Eva Longoria producing and starring in TELENOVELA, which we love. Her tour-de-force performance as Ana Sofia, the demanding but vulnerable star of a larger-than-life telenovela, is hilarious.”
