NBC has been shaking up its tailfeathers with several announcements. The network axed some of its shows like Law and Order: Los Angeles and The Event. It's sad news for The Event fans, since the show started out quite strong last fall. The series finale is set to air on May 23 so mark your calendars!
Breaking news on Wonder Woman update! NBC just announced that they will not be picking up Wonder Woman in the fall! Could it be? As one of the most buzzed-about show with tons of advertising and sneak peeks, Wonder Woman was picking up a lot of publicity, albeit somewhat negative. Fans didn't like her outfits; they didn't like the script...perhaps the studio was concerned that it wouldn't do well in the fall. Whatever the case, it seems highly likely that Wonder Woman will not be gracing us in the fall.
New Pilots for Fall 2011!
On to the good news, NBC has picked up several promising pilots for the fall lineup! Among those receiving the most buzz are Grimm, a new show where the fairy tale characters from Brothers Grimm are not only alive and real, but also pose a threat: "A fantastical drama, Grimm stars David Giuntoli (Privileged) as a detective whose mission is to protect humans living in a world where Grimm’s Fairy Tale characters actually exist. Silas Weir Mitchell (Prison Break), Sasha Roiz (Caprica) and Kate Burton also star."
NBC has also ordered Awake, a show modeled after the epic summer thriller, Inception! "Awake, which comes to us from Kyle Killen (Lone Star) and throughout the development season has been pegged as an Inception-flavored thriller, stars Jason Isaacs (Brotherhood) as a cop who wakes from an injury to find himself living in two separate realities., Laura Allen (Terriers), Cherry Jones (24), Steve Harris (The Practice) and Michaela McManus (The Vampire Diaries) also star."
These sound extremely promising! Along with new pilots, NBC recently announced that they will be picking up Chuck for a fifth season (this spy show has been saved from death at least 8 times!), Harry's Law, and Parenthood!
Speaking of Chuck, the luckiest spy series on TV, the fifth season will be its last! The network agreed to let it come back for a shortened fifth season (13 episodes) to allow the fans to properly say goodbye. Can't ask for much more from this beloved series!
Whew! All in a day's work for NBC! What do you think fans? Saddened; excited; can't wait for Fall? You tell us!
