New TV Shows 2013: More New Comedies And Dramas For Fox And NBC
SEB: 2012-2013 new tv series
Dick Wolf, the man behind Law & Order: SVU, has more than one reason to smile this morning: not only did the peacock network renewed Law & Order for a 14th season – it also picked up his drama pilot, Chicago Fire, for a series.
As we are nearing Monday, when the networks will unveil their fall schedule for advertisers (and the rest of us, common people), more and more new series join the networks’ new schedule.
Only yesterday we’ve learned that NBC gave a final season order to its Thursday Comedies – 30 Rock, Parks And Rec and Community. Now we learn which are the new series that will perhaps take their place. Guys With Kids, the Jimmy Fallon produced comedy is the latest addition. Before that the network has decided to go with Matthew Perry’s Go On, 1600 Penn, Animal Practice, The New Normal and Save Me.
Will the network try to recreate Thursday Comedy block, or will the new fall schedule be very different than the last?
Meanwhile, Fox is making its decisions for the new fall schedule. Three comedies were picked so far – It’s Messy, Ben & Kate and The Goodwin Games. In the drama section we hear that The Mob Doctor and The Following starring Kevin Bacon were picked.
