Most of the midseason series have drawn to a close for the season, leaving us to anticipate whatever offerings TV has in store for us this summer. And in the distance is the promise of a fresh season, full of new and returning series. NBC has a couple of dramas on the horizon, including Do No Harm and the J.J. Abrams/Eric Kripke created Revolution. We came across some art for the shows, which showcase some of the new faces we'll be seeing at the Peacock next season.
Breakout Kings will not be returning for a third season of cons catching cons. Apparently executive producer and co-creater Olmstead has moved on to greener pastures, or at least what the producer hopes will be greener pastures. Olmstead has landed a new gig as showrunner on Dick Wolf’s upcoming production Chicago Fire.
With Rescue Me off the air, there's a vacancy for fireman-related drama on television. Could Chicago Fire fill that void? We'll have to wait and see. In the meantime, we have a couple of clips from the pilot episode, one of which focuses on the drama inside the fire department and another that gives us a look at a fire and an intense situation.
After a flood of renewals and cancellations, we now have our first look at what the fall will look like for network TV, at least as far as NBC is concerned. Added to the line-up are new dramas Revolution and Chicago Fire, along with comedies Go On and The New Normal. There's also a pretty major scheduling change for Community that doesn't look good.
Dick Wolf should be having a pretty damn good day, because of SVU’s triumphant return and because NBC is also giving Wolf Film’s Chicago Fire pilot a go. If you haven’t been privy to information on Chicago Fire yet, the ensemble drama will feature firefighters and paramedics living and working in the heart of Chicago.
Jesse Spencer isn’t sitting around mourning the cancellation of House. He’s already picked up a pilot gig, this time as another sort of life saver. Spencer has been cast in the lead role as a firefighter on the NBC project Chicago Fire. From a doctor to a firefighter, this guy sure likes his roles as dramatic as possible.
Monica Raymund won’t be spending any time on the unemployment line it seems. Just days after her recurring character left The Good Wife for good, she has signed on for a co-starring role in a new drama pilot for NBC. She’ll be one of the leads in Chicago Fire, starring along side The Vampire Diaries alum Taylor Kinney.
NBC has cast Taylor Kinney as one of the leads in Chicago Fire, an ensemble drama that will give a detailed picture of the men and women comprising the Chicago Fire Department. Kinney is most known for a stint on The CW’s Vampire Diaries as a troublemaker werewolf, and later, a ghost. Kinney’s role will be far less supernatural this time around.
NBC execs have gotten right to work after getting back from their corporate retreat in Florida, picking up two drama series to pilot today. The network has given the greenlight to Chicago Fire, a firefighter drama that’s had a lot of buzz around it since it was announced back in the summer, and to County, a new medical drama.
