Blog story: https://blog.sitcomsonline.com/2020/...-schedule.html

NBC ENTERS THE 2020-21 SEASON WITH UNPRECEDENTED STABILITY ACROSS ITS SCHEDULE, FEATURING HIT DRAMAS, BELOVED COMEDIES AND POWERHOUSE ALTERNATIVE PROGRAMMING
Christopher Meloni Reprises Role of Elliot Stabler in New Series “Law & Order: Organized Crime”

Gwen Stefani Returns to “The Voice” Alongside Coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Blake Shelton and Host Carson Daly for Cycle 19

NBC Commits to Funding an Additional Diverse Writer for All 20/21 Scripted Series

MONDAY: Returning Coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani and Host Carson Daly Reunite for Perennial Juggernaut “The Voice,” Followed by the Fall Return of Hit Mystery Drama “Manifest” at 10 P.M.

TUESDAY: Dynamic Tuesday Lineup Stays Strong With “The Voice” Setting the Stage for the Fifth Season of TV’s #1 Drama “This Is Us,” Leading Into Timeslot Winner “New Amsterdam” at 10 P.M.

WEDNESDAY: Following Another Total Viewers Win, the Windy City Block Returns to Conquer Wednesday Nights Starting With “Chicago Med” at 8 P.M., Followed by Wednesday’s Most-Watched Series “Chicago Fire” and Concluding with “Chicago P.D.”

THURSDAY: Fan Favorite Comedies “Superstore” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” Anchor Thursday Nights; Drama Starts at 9 P.M. as “Law & Order: SVU” Marks its Record 22nd Season, Leading into the Much-Anticipated Return of Det. Stabler in the All-New “Law & Order: Organized Crime”

FRIDAY: “The Blacklist” Returns for its Eighth Season at 8 P.M. Followed by Two Hours of Friday’s #1 Newsmagazine, “Dateline NBC”

SUNDAY: #1 Primetime Television Show for a Record Nine Consecutive Years, “Sunday Night Football” Will Broadcast 19 Games Throughout the NFL Season

MIDSEASON/SUMMER: Momentum Continues with Huge New and Returning Series, Including Tina Fey and Robert Carlock’s “Mr. Mayor,” Starring Ted Danson and Holly Hunter; “Kenan,” starring Kenan Thompson; and “Young Rock” from Showrunner Nahnatchka Khan and Producer/Star Dwayne Johnson; Fan Favorites “Good Girls” and “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” Return; Uproarious Hit “Ellen’s Game of Games” Is Set to Continue the Fun; Jimmy Fallon Rocks Into Primetime as Host of Musical Game Show “That’s My Jam”; the Stars Align with “True Story,” hosted by Ed Helms and Randall Park, and Game Show “Small Fortune” brings big prizes to primetime.

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — June 16, 2020 — Heading into the 2020-21 season, NBC unveils a fall lineup capitalizing on strong incumbency and momentum following a number of multi-year pickups for stalwart shows, including “New Amsterdam,” “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago Med,” “Chicago P.D.” “Law & Order: SVU” and “This Is Us.” Featuring gripping dramas that include “Manifest,” fan-favorite comedies “Superstore” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and unrivaled alternative programming, including the return of coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani and host Carson Daly on “The Voice,” the network’s fall schedule sees 16 returning shows, and one new drama with “Law & Order: Organized Crime.”

“Thanks to the ingenuity of our creative teams and our partner studios, NBC has assembled a remarkably stable schedule at a time when stability is called for,” said Paul Telegdy, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “With the reopening of the Universal lot for select productions this week, we are confident that our schedule will premiere intact later this fall. We design shows for longevity and this schedule remains a powerful propulsive force for shows to start here and carry on entertaining across generations.”

Telegdy continued, “Our brand has always championed positive programming, and the events of this year have allowed us the time to take pause, examine our business with a new lens and take some immediate action. Since many of our writers’ rooms have not yet opened, we are taking this opportunity to offer all of this season’s showrunners the chance to enrich their team with an additional diverse writer at any level. It is not the solution by any means, but it is something we can do right now to take a positive step.”

The network will continue to work with NBCUniversal and studio partners on a long-term plan to increase diversity and inclusion in all aspects of our business. In the meantime, NBC will work to increase the overall percentage of diverse talent in this year’s writers’ rooms by funding an additional writer for every scripted show in the 20/21 season. For the third consecutive year, each returning show will also participate in the network’s Female Forward, Emerging Director Program or Alternative Directors Program, all of which provide opportunities for women and ethnically diverse directors in the scripted and unscripted space. While production guidelines due to COVID-19 may impact the programs slightly, the intent of all the above programs remains to provide participants with an in-season episode to direct.

The fall schedule launches a new spin-off with “Law & Order: Organized Crime.” The drama features Christopher Meloni reprising his beloved “Law & Order: SVU” role as Elliot Stabler, who returns to the NYPD to battle organized crime after a devastating personal loss. However, the city and police department have changed dramatically in the decade he’s been away, and he must adapt to a criminal justice system in the midst of its own moment of reckoning. Throughout the series, we will follow Stabler’s journey to find absolution and rebuild his life, while leading a new elite task force that is taking apart the city’s most powerful criminal syndicates one by one.

The pace doesn’t slow as the season continues with several high-profile debuts pairing with huge returning hits to keep the network’s year-round momentum in full swing. Star-studded comedy premieres include “Kenan,” starring Kenan Thompson as a recently widowed host of Atlanta’s #2 morning show who struggles to balance his job and his young daughters; Tina Fey & Robert Carlock’s “Mr. Mayor” stars Ted Danson as a wealthy businessman who runs for mayor of Los Angeles for all the wrong reasons; and producer and star Dwayne Johnson is set for “Young Rock” from Nahnatchka Khan (“Fresh Off the Boat”), in a series focusing on and inspired by the formative years of the global superstar. Fans will rejoice at the return of two favorite series as Jane Levy and the gang are back for season two of “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” and the ladies of “Good Girls” are set for season four. NBC ordered 12 scripted pilots in its last development cycle, with decisions yet to be made due to delayed production schedules.

Both returning alternative hits and new series will also arrive to conquer midseason, led by the fourth season of the Ellen DeGeneres smash “Ellen’s Game of Games.” Joining Ellen in primetime as a master of ceremonies is Jimmy Fallon, who will executive produce and host “That’s My Jam,” a new comedy variety event series inspired by the wildly popular, celebrity-fueled musical segments made famous on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” The laughs continue with “True Story,” starring Ed Helms and Randall Park as hosts of a hybrid alternative-scripted series in which everyday Americans sit down to share their most extraordinary and unbelievably true stories for the first time. In the case of “Small Fortune,” big series can certainly come in small packages, especially in this game show where teams of friends and family take on tiny games to win huge money.

NBC tied for #1 for the 2019-20 September-to-May primetime season in the key adult 18-49 demographic excluding sports, and is #1 outright in scripted programming. The network’s schedule is led by television’s #1 series, “NBC Sunday Night Football”; the #1 scripted series in 18-49, “This Is Us”; television’s perennial #1 most-watched summer series, “America’s Got Talent”; and Wednesday’s “Chicago” dramas, all three of which rank among the top 10 dramas on television in 18-49 and total viewers.

Returning shows for the 2020-21 schedule include “The Blacklist,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago Med,” “Chicago P.D.,” “Dateline NBC,” “Ellen’s Game of Games,” “Good Girls,” “Law & Order: SVU,” “Making It,” “Manifest,” “NBC Sunday Night Football,” “New Amsterdam,” “Superstore,” “This Is Us,” “The Voice” and “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist.”

Additional previously announced new series include “Kenan,” “Mr. Mayor,” “Small Fortune,” “That’s My Jam” “Transplant,” “True Story,” “Who Do You Think You Are?,” and “Young Rock.”

NBC Entertainment chairman Paul Telegdy is out after accusations of fostering a toxic workplace culture

Telegdy, who became NBC Entertainment chairman after years of overseeing NBC's reality TV and late-night shows, will exit NBC as part of an NBC Universal shakeup. His duties will go to longtime NBC Universal executive Frances Berwick, who will oversee all programming strategy and content across all the NBC Universal TV entertainment networks. Telegdy's exit comes a week after The Hollywood Reporter detailed allegations of sexist and racist workplace misconduct under Telegdy. NBC Universal responded by announcing it has launched an investigation. The investigation will continue following Telegdy's exit.

Kyla Kennedy was the best part of Speechless. I did not know she would be playing Ted Danson's daughter on Mr. Mayor. But let's not have it go down the 30 Rock route like today's reviewer wanted, that show was awful. NBC needs broadly appealing comedies, not total niche.

The usual NBC-style comedies that no one watches. NBC should go back to shows with broad appeal instead of all this Tina fey-hipster comedy.
