NBC kicks off the Upfronts with the unveiling of its 2016-2016 schedule. The network picked up about 10 new shows late last week and renewed a good chunk of their existing schedule. There’s new dramas this fall coming from Tina Fey and Robert Carlock (30 ROCK), Shawn Ryan (THE SHIELD), and Eric Kripke (SUPERNATURAL and REVOLUTION). The network is also capitalizing on existing properties with the pickup of a BLACKLIST spinoff, THE BLACKLIST: REDEMPTION, and is bringing the TAKEN movie series to the small screen as a prequel show.
Expect to see some familiar faces on new shows in the fall as well, including Famke Jansen (THE BLACKLIST: REDEMPTION), Milo Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore (THIS IS US), John Lithgow (TRIAL & ERROR), Marlon Wayans (MARLON) and Philip Winchester and Carl Weathers (CHICAGO JUSTICE).
In terms of the schedule itself, NBC is holding a lot of its new shows for midseason and TAKEN will take over the Monday night spot after THE VOICE at midseason as well. BLINDSPOT is also on the move to Wednesday night and THE BLACKLIST is moving to a later timeslot. A decision has not yet been fate regarding the fate of THE CARMICHAEL SHOW.
