Television’s Christmas vacation has been canceled.
The month of December used to be consigned to reruns, hoary holiday specials, movies and classic TV marathons. Network execs were loathe to launch any major priorities in the month because of the conventional wisdom that potential viewers were too distracted by holiday-related pursuits.
But a quick look at the premiere schedule for the final four weeks of the year underscores how busy the frame has become for new and returning series premieres.
NBC has its highest-profile new comedy of the season, the Eva Longoria starrer “Telenovela,” getting a showcase preview with two episodes airing Dec. 7 behind the penultimate episode of “The Voice’s” winter season. “Superstore,” the America Ferrera-Ben Feldman workplace comedy that has generated solid advance buzz, opens for business with two episodes airing on Nov. 30, also behind “The Voice.”

NBCUniversal hopes to use its annual broadcasts of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and National Dog Show to draw more attention to a program that will not see the light of day until well into next year.
The company’s NBC broadcast network will feature a 60-second promo on Thanksgiving Day toward the end of the Parade, which typically concludes around noon. Actress Eva Longoria, who will star in a coming NBC drama called “Telenovela,” will narrate the piece, which will depict athletes from around the world with their families in their home countries.
“The spot reflects the crucial role that family plays in the journey of so many Olympic athletes,” said John Miller, chief marketing officer of NBC Olympics. “With the Games being one of the few family-viewing experiences left on television, we felt this message was appropriate for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.”
Athletes in the spot include include David Boudia (USA, »

In her original essay, the “Mad Men'” costume designer discusses how she found a place where fashion and film meet.
My love of fashion and TV/film started as early as I can remember. My mother got me hooked on movies. When I was young, she would take dresses for my dolls. I made my first dress when I was 8 … and haven’t stopped.
I didn’t immediately think about fashion as a career, but I finally got my degree in fashion design. After school, I moved to Paris to follow my dream of becoming a designer. That didn’t really work out at the time, so I ended up moving to New York after four months in Europe. There, I worked as an assistant designer in the fashion district. One night, I met a costume designer at a party, and knew exactly what turn I wanted my career to take. »

Add inventory management to the ever-lengthening list of challenges that broadcast networks are facing this season. In recent weeks, ABC, NBC and Fox have cut back on the number of episodes in initial orders for new series — the TV equivalent of calling an audible that is likely to shake up the order patterns for next season’s development crop.
“The TV season is dynamic and more unpredictable than ever,” Jeff Bader, NBC’s president of program planning, strategy and research, tells Variety. “The episodes that you ordered before the start of the season aren’t necessarily in line with what you need as the season goes on.”
NBC has trimmed episodes from three comedies, two of which haven’t premiered yet (“Truth Be Told” and the upcoming “Hot & Bothered” and “Superstore”), and the struggling drama “The Player.” Fox cut its investment in the flagging “Minority Report” and shaved two episodes from the midseason entry “Lookinglass. »

NBC’s new comedies “Superstore” and “Telenovela” will air on Mondays starting in January, though each will get a sneak preview on the night following “The Voice” later this fall, the network announced Monday.

Actress, filmmaker and activist Eva Longoria thinks the people campaigning to have Donald Trump dumped as host of “Saturday Night Live” are going about it the wrong way. “This is part of freedom of speech, freedom of press,” Longoria told TheWrap’s editor-in-chief Sharon Waxman backstage at the International Women’s Media Foundation’s 2015 Courage in Journalism Awards benefit in Beverly Hills on Tuesday night. “He has his right — not only that, Lorne Michaels has a right to book whoever he wants.” Several Hispanic groups have urged NBC to drop the Republican presidential candidate as host of the show’s Nov. »

Hot and Bothered and Superstore are set to arrive on NBC during mid-season, but the network announced on Monday that they had reduced the episode orders for both series from 13 to 11.
According to Variety, NBC revealed that the reason for the reduction was not due to their faith in the new shows, but the fact that the network has a lot of programming that they are having difficult fitting into their weekly schedule.
"The decision was made to trim those orders because the shows are not filming yet and thus can more easily make the adjustment in their production schedules. More of NBC’s midseason series may also pare back episodes."
Hot and Bothered is new Eva Longoria comedy that made a big splash at the NBC Upfront back in May. No exact premiere dates for either series have been set, »
Desperate Housewives alum Eva Longoria continues to build an impressive body of work as producer, with news that she will co-produce Zone of Silence, alongside actor Eric Winter (Witches Of East End), and Jason Blum – the producer behind the Paranormal Activity, Insidious and The Purge movie franchises, as well as the award-winning The Normal Heart. The drama – set for NBC – will focus on a geographical area known locally as the Mapimi Silent Zone in Mexico.
The desert area, located near the Bolson de Mapimi in Durango, includes part of the Mapimi Biosphere Reserve, and is home to a local myth about a land-locked Bermuda Triangle, of sorts. Legend has it that no type of communication – radio signal or otherwise – can penetrate the area, though many locals remain sceptical.
The modern version of the myth stems from an incident in 1970, during which the U.S military apparently launched an Athena test »
