NBC’s A to Z is a Half-hour single-camera comedy premiering Thursdays this Fall, is the A-to-Z story of Andrew (Ben Feldman, “Mad Men”) and Zelda (Cristin Milioti, “How I Met Your Mother”) – a pair that almost wasn’t – and all that happened from the day they met.
This is the A-to-Z story of Andrew (Ben Feldman, “Mad Men”) and Zelda (Cristin Milioti, “How I Met Your Mother”) – a pair that almost wasn’t – and all that happened from the day they met.
Andrew has always been a secret romantic… not above crooning to Celine Dion while driving to work, with dreams of finding “the one.” He imagines her to be just like that shimmering beauty he spotted that night in that silver dress at that concert two years ago.
Zelda, having grown up with a hippie mom who believed the universe would provide for everything, rebelled into a no-nonsense practical lawyer who prefers the control of online dating.
But when a computer glitch sends her a total mismatch, she’s asked to come in for an interview at the Internet dating service where Andrew works, and this is where it all begins. Andrew and Zelda meet for the first time and despite their differences, sparks fly. She thinks it’s chance. He thinks it’s fate. After all, he’s convinced she’s the shimmering girl in the silver dress.
Is it true love forever or just a detour in destiny? Follow along the ins and outs of Andrew and Zelda. From Executive Producer Rashida Jones comes a fresh new comedy about dating in the modern world.
NBC’s Marry Me is a half-hour single-camera comedy premiering Tuesdays this Fall, is a fresh new romantic comedy about the funny and often bumpy road between “I will” and “I do.” Six years ago, Annie and Jake bonded over their mutual love of nachos, and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Now, after returning from a romantic two-week island vacation, Jake’s all set to pop the question. But before he can ask, Annie lets loose on Jake for his inability to commit. She was expecting him to “put a ring on it” in paradise, dammit! Needless to say, Jake’s perfect proposal is ruined.
Not wanting to spend the next 60 years talking about that mess of a proposal, Jake and Annie decide to hold off on the engagement until they can do it right. But if history tells us anything, it’s when we really want things to go right that they all tend to go wrong. The only thing we know for sure is these two are destined to be together whether they can get it together or not.
From David Caspe, the creator of “Happy Endings,” and Seth Gordon, the director of “The Goldbergs,” “Identity Thief” and “Horrible Bosses,” comes a fresh new romantic comedy about the funny and often bumpy road between “I will” and “I do.”
NBC’s Bad Judge is a half-hour single-camera comedy premiering Thursdays this Fall from Executive Producers Will Ferrell and Adam McKay (“Anchorman,” “Step Brothers,” “Talladega Nights”), comes a sexy new comedy about a judge who always plays by her own rulings.
No excuses, no apologies, no compromises. Wild child Rebecca Wright (Kate Walsh, “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Private Practice”) knows how to have a good time, but she also happens to be one of LA’s toughest and most respected criminal court judges. She has a reputation for unorthodox behavior in the courtroom, including creative sentencing and saying exactly what’s on her mind.
Her private life, on the other hand, is anything but innocent. She parties too much and rocks out on the drums in a band with her best friend, Jenny. While there’s no shortage of male admirers who would love to spend time with her, she’s not ready to settle down… except when an eight-year-old boy – whose parents were put in jail by Rebecca – needs her help. He may in fact be the one thing that starts to tame this “bad” judge.
From Executive Producers Will Ferrell and Adam McKay (“Anchorman,” “Step Brothers,” “Talladega Nights”) comes a sexy new comedy about a judge who always plays by her own rulings.
NBC’s The Mysteries of Laura is a One-hour drama premiering Wednesdays this Fall, is an action-packed, but lighthearted cop show with a twist, based on the popular Spanish series about one woman’s quest to have it all.
Debra Messing (“Will & Grace”) stars as Laura Diamond, a brilliant NYPD homicide detective who balances her “Columbo” day job with a crazy family life that includes two unruly twin boys and a soon-to-be ex-husband (Josh Lucas) – also a cop – who just can’t seem to sign the divorce papers. Between cleaning up after her boys and cleaning up the streets, she’d be the first to admit she has her “hot mess” moments in this hilariously authentic look at what it really means to be a “working mom” today. Somehow she makes it all work with the help of her sexy and understanding partner, and things get even more complicated when her husband ironically becomes her boss at the precinct. For Laura, every day is a high-wire balancing act.
From Executive Producer/Writer Jeff Rake (“Boston Legal,” “The Practice”), Executive Producer Greg Berlanti (“Green Lantern,” “Brothers & Sisters”) and Executive Producer/Director McG (“Terminator Salvation,” “Charlie’s Angels”) comes an action-packed, but lighthearted cop show with a twist, based on the popular Spanish series about one woman’s quest to have it all.
TNT’s Transporter The Series centers on Frank Martin (Chris Vance), a professional “transporter” paid to pick up and deliver people or cargo from anywhere in the world. Frank is the very best at what he does and handles only the most difficult dangerous and assignments. The drama features dry wit, exotic locations, heart-pounding action and nail-biting suspense. Coming Fall 2014.
