NBC 2011 Fall TV Premiere: Up All Night

One of the new comedy series set to premiere this fall is NBC’s Up All Night, which stars Christina Applegate, Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph. The series tackles the timeless subject of child rearing and balancing other adult priorities and responsibilities. More details and a preview video ahead!

Is it too much to hope for a successful, funny TV show starring Will Arnett in this day and age? I don’t think so and between his co-stars and the premise, I think Up All Night could be great. As a fan of Applegate, Arnett and Rudolph, I’d love to see this one work out (a lot more than Running Wilde did, anyway). Below is NBC’s synopsis for the series and a video clip that reveals plenty of potential as far as the subject matter of the show goes, and Arnett and Applegate’s on-screen chemistry.

From Emily Spivey (NBC's Parks and Recreation, NBC's Saturday Night Live) and legendary Emmy Award-winning producer Lorne Michaels, comes Up All Night, a modern take on parenthood that shows the challenges of balancing a career, marriage and a new baby.Christina Applegate (Samantha Who?) stars as Reagan, a successful public relations executive, and Will Arnett (Arrested Development) plays Chris, Reagan’s supportive, stay-at-home husband. The two have just become parents – a surprise that has set their lives on a new path as responsible adults -- for the most part. Maya Rudolph (Saturday Night Live, Bridesmaids) stars as Ava, Reagan’s outlandish boss and best friend, whose whirlwind social escapades serve as constant reminders of Reagan's former carefree life. James Pumphrey (High Road) portrays Brian, Reagan’s socially awkward hipster assistant.Up All Night is a production of Universal Media Studios and Broadway Video. Spivey is the creator and serves as executive producer along with Michaels and Jon Pollack (NBC’s “30 Rock”).

Up All Night will begin airing Wednesdays at 8/7c on NBC this Fall 2011.
