NBC Announces New Fall Shows

NBC must be squeezing out some of its current programming. After all, they have a lot of new shows in the pipeline for this fall. Let's take a quick peek...

Yeah -- this is actually a takeoff on the 1989 movie. While it may seem about 15-20 years too late, I need to give this one a chance because it stars Peter Krause, Maura Tierney, Craig T. Nelson, Dax Shepard, Bonnie Bedelia, Monica Potter, Erika Christensen and Sarah Ramos. Unfortunately, it's NOT a comedy, which makes the movie comparison quite lame. However, Ron Howard and Brian Grazer will executive produce; they seem to know what they are doing. Check out the clip below.

Peter Berg scored some cult fans with "Friday Night Lights." Hopefully, he will land better ratings with this medical drama, which follows first-responder paramedics in the San Francisco Bay area. It stars Derek Luke ("Notorious"), Cliff Curtis ("10,000 B.C"), Anastasia Griffith ("Damages"), Aimee Garcia ("George Lopez"), Kevin Rankin ("Friday Night Lights") and Jamey Sheridan ("Law & Order: Criminal Intent").

Here's another new hospital drama to fill the "ER" void. This one sounds painfully similar to Jada Pinkett Smith's "Hawthorne," since it is the medical world through the eyes of nurses. There's no star power like Smith, but it does have Taylor Schilling ("Dark Matter"), Jamie Lee Kirchner ("Rescue Me") and Michelle Trachtenberg ("Gossip Girl").

Day One
Executive producer/writer Jesse Alexander ("Heroes," "Lost," "Alias") combines the elements of "Jericho" and "Lost" into one hour-long drama. The show focuses on a band of survivors after a global catastrophe ravages the world's infrastructures. That not-so-merry band includes Adam Campbell ("Date Movie"), Catherine Dent ("The Shield"), Julie Gonzalo ("Eli Stone"), David Lyons ("ER"), Derek Mio ("Greek"), Carly Pope ("24"), Thekla Reuten ("Sleeper Cell") and Addison Timlin ("Cashmere Mafia").

100 Questions
On a lighter note, this comedy stars Sophie Winkleman ("Peep Show") as a girl that's looking for love in all the wrong places, including a dating site. After she signs up, she is required to take a 100-question compatibility test -- hence, the title of the show. Hmm...

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo ("Arrested Development") developed this comedy about Greendale Community College, whose student body is made up of high-school losers, newly divorced housewives, and old people who want to keep their minds active. We absolutely love that it stars Joel McHale ("The Soup") and Chevy Chase. NBC previously had a deal with McHale for "The IT Crowd." Hopefully, this one actually makes it to broadcast. -- Rachel Cericola
