Watch New Trailers For NBC’s Fall Series Blindspot, The Player And More

12 May 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

NBC has revealed trailers for a few of its fall series, including Blindspot, People Are Talking, The Player and Heartbreaker  – and the result is an expectedly mixed bag. My first impressions of the trailers, below:

Out of everything that’s coming to the major networks this fall, Blindspot seems like one of the most promising. It boasts a highly capable cast in Jaime Alexander and Sullivan Stapleton, and the story is basically a TV blend of Memento and The Bourne Identity, which I’m entirely on board with. Unless the story is mind-numbingly stupid (of which there’s a disconcertingly high possibility), Blindspot could be the rare NBC thriller that actually draws eyeballs.

Unfortunately, I can’t say that I feel anything apart from irritation toward People Are Talking, simply because even though the trailer, true to this comedy’s title, features a lot of people talking (about sex, sex »

11 May 2015 4:58 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's Upfronts Week, which means networks are unveiling teasers and trailers for their new 2015–16 TV shows. Here, an extremely preliminary set of immediate reactions to NBC's new series.Blindspot A naked, heavily tattooed woman wakes up in a duffel bag in Times Square. She has no memories! Some kind of government conspiracies, etc. First impressions: I'd be more intrigued if I hadn't been burned by elaborate high-concept shows in the past. (I remember you, Prison Break.) This already looks difficult to care about. The Player Vegas! Security firm! A dead wife! Etc.! Also, Wesley Snipes. First impressions: "From the executive producer of The Blacklist"? You don't say! Also reminiscent of Person of Interest. Falls under "slick bad-boy action procedural" umbrella. Heartbreaker Melissa George is a heart-transplant surgeon. But she's also a woman???? First impressions: She spits on people? Is that supposed to be okay? We've all done that by accident, »

NBC has unveiled new trailers for its 2015 fall season, including peeks at the new Wesley Snipes action series The Player, Greg Berlanti’s identity mystery Blindspot, and the new Mark-Paul Gosselaar comedy People Are Talking. Here’s a peek at all the new trailers.

Blindspot is executive produced by Greg Berlanti and stars Jaimie Alexander.

A vast international plot explodes when a beautiful Jane Doe is discovered naked in Times Square, completely covered in mysterious, intricate tattoos with no memory of who she is or how she got there. But there’s one tattoo that is impossible to miss: the name of FBI agent Kurt Weller, emblazoned across her back. “Jane,” Agent Weller and the rest of the FBI quickly realize that each mark on her body is a crime to solve, leading them closer to the truth about her identity and the mysteries to be revealed.

NBC Bets On Live Programs, Neil Patrick Harris, ‘Heroes’ Sequel For Fall

10 May 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Live from New York, Los Angeles, and, perhaps, several other places, it’s NBC’s fall schedule.

The Comcast-owned network said it would start to rely more heavily on live and live-to-tape programming in the fall, a reflection, perhaps, of the troubles the outlet has had in attaining hit status for much of its scripted fare in past seasons. NBC is set to run a live variety show featuring Neil Patrick Harris on Tuesday nights; run episodes of the sitcom “Undateable” on Friday nights that are performed live; and continue to lean on two of its most durable franchises, “The Voice” on Mondays and Tuesdays, and “Sunday Night Football” on Sunday nights in the first half of the season. The network will also mount the third in a series of live broadcasts of popular Broadway fare, setting a take of “The Wiz” for the holiday season.

NBC's 2015-16 TV Schedule: 'Blindspot' lands post-'Voice,' 'Heroes Reborn' to Thursday

10 May 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

NBC announced its 2015-16 primetime TV schedule on Sunday (May 10), a schedule that arrived with several key open questions, including: What will get the benefit of "The Voice" lead-in? What can be done to save "The Blacklist" in specific and Thursday in general? Where, if anywhere, will NBC be able to make room for comedy programming? We now have answers to all three questions. There are, in order, "Blindspot," "Heroes Reborn" and Friday. NBC's fall, which will be buttressed, as always, by Sunday Night Football, includes the premieres of three new dramas (four if you consider "Heroes Reborn" to be new) and one new comedy, with only Sunday and Wednesday nights intact. “We’re attacking the new season with the same programming strategy that successfully turned NBC around — a slate of provocative and innovative series and events that cut through the clutter and will continue to build on our momentum, »
