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 »

The long-arc shows are gaining steam, and it looks as though they are officially the hottest thing in television. NBC‘s fall effort, Blindspot, goes another step further than the usual theme of unraveling threads by kicking off without knowing anything about what’s going on.
In this version of Wtf television, a woman shows up in the middle of Times Square, in a bag, naked, covered in tattoos, and with no memory. The plot of the show? Boom. Go.
As you’ll see in the trailer above, one of the tattoos is an FBI agent’s name, and the hunt is on. Who is she? Why is she there? What happened to her? What’s it all mean?
It’s like a spin on The Blacklist, except that we just get the list, it’s written in clues we have to decipher, and on a person.
It’s the »

NBC announced its 2015-16 schedule on Sunday (May 10) morning and also unveiled first-look photos from many of its new shows. We have a gun-toting Zachary Levi as Luke Collins in "Heroes Reborn," which NBC hopes will be a better kick-start for its Thursday lineup than "The Slap" was this spring. And speaking of "The Slap," we have Melissa George as a heart surgeon with romantic issues in "Heartbreaker," airing Tuesdays at 9 p.m. after "The Voice." Plus, if you dug Dave Annable as a doctor in "Red Band Society," he's here, too. And NBC has gone all-in on "Strike Back" stars, so check out the first pictures of Philip Winchester in a topless brawl from the Thursday 10 p.m. drama "The Player," plus Sullivan Stapleton and a naked, tattooed Jaime Alexander in the Monday 10 p.m. drama "Blindspot."

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, »

Continuing a day of pre-upfronts excitement that threatens to Never End, NBC has ordered two more dramas and picked up one of its bubble dramas. Ordered to series are "Game of Silence" and "The Player," while "The Night Shift" has been renewed for a third season. This is also the Sony Pictures Television part of our day, as NBC has a history of package deals with the studio. "The Player" is, intriguingly, NBC's second drama fronted by a "Strike Back" star, joining "Blindspot" with Sullivan Stapleton. Wesley Snipes and Philip Winchester star in this drama about "a former military operative turned security expert who is drawn into a high-stakes game where an organization of wealthy individuals gamble on his ability to stop some of the biggest crimes imaginable from playing out." Charity Wakefield and Damon Gupton also star in the series from creator John Rogers and director Bharat Nalluri. "Game of Silence" stars David Lyons, »

The official synopsis reads: "'Cut Snake' tells the story of Sparra Farrell (Russell), an ex-convict who is trying to make a life for himself in a new city.

Within a week ahead of the annual TV Upfronts, NBC has come right out of the gate ready to announce three new series that they will be ordering for the upcoming 2015 Fall season. According to The Futon Critic, NBC has given series orders to three new drama pilots: Chicago Med (a direct spinoff from Chicago Fire), a new Greg Berlanti mystery thriller series called Blindspot and an additional medical drama titled Heartbreaker starring Melissa George. NBC has already granted series orders for Jennifer Lopez cop drama Shades of Blue, a sequel series for Coach, Eva Longoria’s comedy Telenovela, and an untitled Jerrod Carmichael comedy.
Chicago Med is an obvious pick up for NBC as it expands the brand of Dick Wolf Chicago television universe that began with Chicago Fire in 2012, followed by Chicago Pd in 2014 and now solidifies connections to Wolf’s other ongoing series Law & Order Svu as »

As broadcast television heads toward upfront week, NBC has announced the addition of three brand new dramas to its slate. Having commissioned 19 pilots, the network already sent Shades Of Blue, Coach and Telenovela straight to series. These projects have now been joined by series commitments for Heartbreaker, Blindspot and Dick Wolf’s Chicago Med.
Chicago Med promises to take audiences into the daily chaos of Chicago’s busiest hospital – focusing on the doctors working within. It fits into Dick Wolf’s successful Chicago franchise, with characters from Chicago P.D and Chicago Fire planned to pass through the sterile hallways of the hospital. Oliver Platt, S. Epatha Merkerson, Laurie Holden, Nick Gehlfuss, and Yaya Dacosta are among the cast of this show that is written by Matt Olmstead, Michael Brandt and Derek Haas. The synopsis clearly sounds like a version of ER made to fit with Wolf’s existing shows, »

Thor and Thor: The Dark World star Jaimie Alexander is moving to the small screen, with NBC issuing a series order for Blindspot, ahead of the network's official upfront presentation later this month. We also have the first photo featuring a nude and heavily tattooed Jaimie Alexander, just moments after she wakes up in a large duffel bag. Take a look at the show's official description below.
"A beautiful Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander) is discovered naked in Times Square, completely covered in mysterious, intricate tattoos with no memory of who she is or how she got there. There's one that's very clear, however: the name of FBI agent Kurt Weller, emblazoned across her back. 'Jane,' Agent Weller and 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 is the first broadcaster out of the gate with its 2015-16 season pickups, ordering to series Chicago Fire spinoff No. 2 Chicago Med, the Greg Berlanti mystery thriller Blindspot and medical drama Heartbreaker (Fka Heart Matters).
Related2015 Renewal Scorecard: What’s Coming Back? What’s Getting Cancelled? What’s on the Bubble?
“Chicago Med,” which debuted as a planted episode during the April 7 episode of “Chicago Fire,” is the third series in the “Chicago” franchise, following the first spinoff, “Chicago P.D.” The medical drama, starring Oliver Platt, S. Epatha Merkerson, Laurie Holden, Nick Gehlfuss and Yaya Dacosta, centers around the city’s most explosive hospital and the doctors who will tackle new cases inspired by topical events, while forging fiery relationships in the pandemonium of the emergency room. Through the series, cast members from Dick Wolf’s other two “Chicago” casts will make appearances, as the Windy City’s police and fire departments intertwine with the team of doctors.

TV observers know that while upfronts are the week after next, it's actually next week that ends up being the nonstop maelstrom of renewals, pickups and cancellations. NBC, which will already get a headstart on the upfront week by announcing its full schedule next weekend, also decided to get a headstart on series pickups, ordering three drama pilots to series on Friday (May 1) afternoon. Leading the way was no-brainer pickup "Chicago Med," joined by "Blindspot" and "Heartbreaker." Let's get to what's what: "Chicago Med" is, of course, the third head in NBC and Dick Wolf's expanding Windy City Procedural Hydra, having been spun off from "Chicago Fire" earlier this spring. The cast includes Oliver Platt, S. Epatha Merkerson, Laurie Holden, Nick Gehlfuss and Yaya Dacosta. Even if you missed the nested spinoff episode, you really can guess what "Chicago Med" is about. In addition to the Chicago shows, Dick Wolf »
