Sean Hayes is making his triumphant return to NBC in the new sitcom "Sean Saves the World." The series follows him playing a divorced gay dad who is trying to care for his teenage daughter while also juggling a job with a strict new boss.
A trailer for the new comedy was presented during NBC's Upfronts in New York. Sami Isler plays Sean's daughter Ellie, while Linda Lavin plays his mother Lorna who decides to move in with them. The series also stars Echo Kellum and "Reno 911!'s" Thomas Lennon as Sean's boss.
"Sean Saves the World" is one of NBC's new additions to its Thursday comedy block. It joins veterans "Parks and Recreation" and "Parenthood" as well as newcomers "Welcome to the Family" and "The Michael J. Fox Show." Hayes' new series is clearly trying to appeal to "Will & Grace" fans, and it seems like it just might do the trick. »
The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the first announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on NBC.
The Peacock did not have a good year. Only one of its new shows, "Revolution," was a true hit. Another, "Chicago Fire," got renewed by the skin of its teeth whilst the fate of a third, "Hannibal," remains uncertain.
None of last year's new comedies survived, neither did two mid-season dramas, which leaves the network with some big holes to fill. Three dramas and three comedies will debut in the Fall ahead of three more dramas and two comedies mid-season. Two further dramas and a comedy are presently unscheduled.
Several other pilots didn't make the final cut and won't become series including the high-profile Charlize Theron-produced drama about the Hatfields and McCoys, the Bruckheimer-produced »

The "Office" alum and longtime "Boston Legal" star returns to the spotlight on the Peacock network and this time, instead of upholding the law (albeit via blackmail, bribery and the like), he's breaking it. In NBC's upcoming series "The Blacklist," Spader stars as Raymond “Red” Reddington, the most wanted man in the world.
Check out Spader and his devilish ways below in NBC's new four-minute trailer for "The Blacklist", as well as two new preview clips, and scroll down for more previews and official descriptions of the new series on NBC's 2013-2014 schedule: the “Ironside" remake starring Blair Underwood, the new Mike O'Malley comedy "Welcome To The Family," Sean Hayes' return to sitcoms with "Sean Saves The World," and, of course, the highly-anticipated "Michael J. Fox Show."

Chicago – When you’re in as much of a ratings struggle as NBC, it makes sense to shake things up and that’s exactly what they’re doing in the Fall with a new show or an old show in a new time every single night of the week. “Chicago Fire,” “Revolution,” “The Biggest Loser,” “Parks and Recreation,” and “Parenthood” are moving. “Community” is being held until a midseason, 13-episode run. No decision yet made on “Celebrity Apprentice” or “Hannibal,” which isn’t that surprising as they are mid-season shows anyway although it shouldn’t give fans of either program confidence as NBC announced a midseason schedule as well and they’re not on it. Anything could still happen with either program however and they could be held as replacements for shows that fail. That may be the best shot for “Hannibal” fans now. The best new show on the »

Dave Annable has been tapped as one of the leads in the NBC multi-camera comedy pilot Joe, Joe & Jane. The project, from writers-executive producers Joe Port and Joe Wiseman and 20th Century Fox TV, is loosely based on the relationship between Port, Wiseman and Wiseman’s wife. It centers on a conflict-avoidant children’s book author caught in an ongoing tug of war between two needy, flawed people: his wife (Sally Pressman) and his handsome ladies man co-author/ best friend (Annable). Annable, repped by CAA and manager Sue Leibman, starred in the ABC drama 666 Park Avenue this season.
