Watch the Trailers for All the New NBC Fall Shows

NBC has 9 new scripted shows coming this fall and some look pretty promising. Jon Favreau and JJ Abrams Revolotion, Matthew Perry‘s Go On, The New Normal with Justin Bartha and Andrew Rannells and 1600 Penn with Josh Gad.

Check them all out below!

Go On – Stars Matthew Perry as an irreverent yet charming sportscaster who tries to move on from loss with the help of the members of his mandatory group therapy sessions.

 

Save Me – Stars Anne Heche as a woman who lets herself – and her marriage – go until she undergoes an “awakening” that transforms her spiritually and physically into a desirable and outspoken woman who just might be channeling god.

 

The New Normal – A comedy about a blended family of a gay couple — Bryan (Andrew Rannells) and David (Justin Bartha) — and a  waitress and mother of one Goldie (Georgia King) who becomes a surrogate to help them have a child. Co-starring is Ellen Barkin as Goldie’s grandmother.

 

Animal Practice – A “House”-like veterinarian (Justin Kirk), who loves animals but usually hates their owners (especially the new woman who runs the clinic). Tyler Labine, Bobby Lee and Amy Huberman co-star.

 

1600 Penn – The show is a family comedy set in the White House. Josh Gad co-created the show and is starring. Bill Pullman, Jenna Elfman and Martha MacIsaac co-star.

 

 

Guys with Kids – Centers on three 30-something guys (Jesse Bradford, Anthony Anderson, Zach Cregger) who enjoy the adventures of parenting despite the fact they haven’t grown up themselves. The cast  also includes Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Tempestt Bledsoe.

 

Revolution – Directed by Jon Favreau and produced by JJ Abrams’, Revolution is described as a high-octane action drama following a group of characters struggling to survive and reunite with loved ones in a world where all forms of energy have mysteriously ceased to exist. Starring Billy Burke, Giancarlo Esposito, Tracy Spiradakos, Graham Rogers and Anna Lise.

 

Do No Harm – Starring Steven Pasquale (Rescue Me) as a neurosurgeon trying to deal with a dangerous alter ego named Ian Price. For years, he’s been able to keep Ian in cheek but the drug he developed to do that no longer seems to be working, which could present some major problems in Jason’s personal and professional life.

 

Chicago Fire – Jesse Spencer stars in this action-drama about the complex and heroic men and women of the Chicago Fire Department. Eamonn Walker, Taylor Kinney, Monica Raymund, David Eigenberg, Charlie Barnett, Lauren German, Teri Reeves and Merle Dandridge also star.

    Go On: Well, at least it looks better than Mr. Sunshine.

    Save Me: I can’t tell if this is NBC’s joke on Anne Heche, or Anne Heche’s joke on all of us. Either way, seeing her in this role is too freaky a prospect for me.

    The New Normal: I dunno, I think it might be too quirky to gain traction. That and the fact that there’s really no star power there — except the amazing Ellen Barkin, of course. Just don’t see this one lasting a whole season, even with Ryan Murphy behind it.

    Animal Practice: I’ll admit I laughed at the monkey named Zaius. Good cast, including the always affable Tyler Labine. Will definitely check it out.

    1600 Penn: From the trailer, the comedy in this show doesn’t exactly look subtle. I will watch the first episode, but don’t really have high hopes for it actually being funny.

    The humor in Guys With Kids looks really forced — but in that regard, it fits right in with any number of shows on the air right now, so it’s hard to tell if it’ll find an audience. All I can say definitively is that that audience will not include yours truly.

    Saw the trailer for Revolution the other day, and I’m looking forward to this. However, it could end up in the trashbin or on my must-see list… it all depends on how they handle the mystery and ongoing plot line as it develops.

    Do No Harm: I’m sorry, Steven Pasquale, but I can’t buy you in a dramatic role. I kept waiting for you to do something adorably stupid, like your character in Rescue Me. Maybe if they showed the “Mr. Hyde” of his “Dr. Jekyll” character instead, it might’ve swayed me.

    And speaking of shows about firefighters, we have Chicago Fire. Why will I be tuning in to this one? Two words: Eamonn Walker.

    Save ME: WTF, right? I watched the first minute of the trailer thinking it was a joke.

    Go On – I still like Matthew Perry and hope this works out.

    The New Normal: I love the cast and despite no one really knowing who they are if they market it right, it could do well.

    Revolution: I always have about 5 or 6 shows collecting dust on my TIVO that I mean to watch that I just never get around to doing. I’ll definitely watch the 1st episode I just hope it doesnt start getting dust on it after that.
