NBC details fall premiere dates


Peacock premieres for the new Fall season begin Tuesday, 9/13 with new episodes of “Parenthood” — following the final performance of “America’s Got Talent” — and continuing the week of 9/19 with the Monday debuts of “The Sing-Off” and new drama “The Playboy Club.” On Wednesday, 9/14, the new comedies “Up All Night” (10-10:30 p.m. ET) and “Free Agents” (10:30-11 p.m. ET) will debut following the season finale of “America’s Got Talent.” Both series also will premiere in their regular time periods with their second original episodes on 9/21 (8-8:30 p.m. ET and 8:30-9 p.m. ET, respectively).

The debuts also include the network’s new series — “Prime Suspect,” “Whitney” and “Grimm” — that will continue through 10/21 when NBC rolls out its Friday night lineup that includes “Grimm” (9-10 p.m. ET).

Prime Suspect is a remake of the British series centers on the female head of a homicide squad (portrayed by Maria Bello) who leads her team in solving homicides while juggling her personal life. Aidan Quinn is set to costar as her boss. From Universal Media Studios, Peter Berg is executive producing.

Up All Night features Christina Applegate staring in an irreverent look at parenthood through the POV of an acerbic working mother, who never thought she’d be a mom. Also in the mix is her stay-at-home husband and opinionated parents. From NBC Studios and Lorne Michaels.

Whitney is a multicamera comedy from Universal Media Studios, based on the stand-up comedy of Whitney Cummings and revolves around the ups and downs of a young couple in a committed relationship. Cummings penned the pilot and will executive produce with Betsy Thomas (Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel), Scott Stuber (Your Highness), Quan Phung and Barry Katz (Good Luck Chuck).
