NBC's trailers for new shows

Posted on

NBC announced its fall schedule this weekend and with it, a batch of trailers for the network’s new shows. Watch them below, along with additional clips, and vote in our poll to tell us what you think about these new kids on the NBC block.

Prime Suspect

Maria Bello, Kirk Acevedo, and Aidan Quinn star in this adaptation of the British miniseries. Wonder Woman didn’t make the cut, but at least this badass chick did.

The Playboy Club

Set in the 1960s, the drama takes a look at the lives of Playboy bunnies. It stars Amber Heard, David Krumholtz, and Eddie Cibrian.

Smash

Debra Messing, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, and Anjelica Huston star in a show about a cross-section of characters who come together for the exhilarating thrill of putting on a Broadway musical. NBC would be gleeful if this was a hit.

Grimm

Dark but fantastical cop drama about a world in which characters inspired by Grimm’s Fairy Tales exist. It stars relative newbies David Giuntoli, Bitsie Tulloch, and Kate Burton.

Awake

Formerly titled REM, this procedural hybrid follows the simultaneous parallel lives of a detective who can not let go of any aspect of his fractured family after a horrible car accident.

The Firm

Based on the John Grisham book. (No trailer available.)

Whitney

Up All Night

Parenthood through the POV of an acerbic working mom (Christina Applegate). Parenthood – tears + giggles = ?

Free Agents

Hank Azaria stars in this single-cam workplace comedy based on a UK show about two quirky co-workers who are both on the rebound. The Office: Reloaded?

Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea

Inspired by Handler’s best-selling memoir that will focus on the lives of a group of 20-somethings who live and work together with a very outspoken young woman.

Best Friends Forever

A comedy that takes a look at what happens when best friends promise to support each other — no matter what the cost or circumstances. (No trailer available.)

Bent

Amanda Peet stars in this single-camera comedy about a recently divorced Type-A single mom who tries hard not to fall for the sexy surfer dude contractor she hires to re-do her kitchen.
