NBC: ‘Chuck’ Pickup Looks GoodMay 12th, 2011 | Posted by in Television
Following Tuesday’s Fox massacre, NBC unveiled some of its fall TV plans on Wednesday.
“Chuck” (fifth season) and “Parenthood” (third season) reportedly look good for renewal.
NBC picked up four pilots:
- “Smash,” the musical drama from Steven Spielberg. A show-within-a-show vehicle about a group of people who come together to put on a Marilyn Monroe-themed Broadway musical. It’s been called “Glee for adults” and stars Debra Messing, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport and Anjelica Huston.
- “Prime Suspect,” the series adaption of the acclaimed British miniseries, with Maria Bello taking the role made famous by Helen Mirren.
- “Up All Night” starring Christina Applegate in what is billed “as an irreverent look at parenthood through the point of view of an acerbic working mother.”
- “Whitney” stars Whitney Cummings and Chris D’Elia as a young couple navigating the ups and downs of a committed relationship.
No word yet on “Wonder Woman.”
