NBC Upfront: What’s Next?


(NBC) This time a year ago, “New Amsterdam” was one of the new shows introduced at NBC’s annual “upfront” gathering to attract both advertisers and viewers to the newest potential stars in the prime time lineup.

That medical drama found first year success, as did fellow rookie drama “Manifest.” They’re both back next season, along with a new batch of shows.

Those include the legal drama “Bluff City Law,” with Jimmy Smits back on NBC as a Memphis attorney working alongside his daughter.

Also returning to NBC is “West Wing” alum Bradley Whitford, starring in the comedy “Perfect Harmony.”

He plays a former Princeton music professor working with a small town church choir.

“This is a story about a bunch of very different people getting together and making something beautiful,” he says.

Also looking for laughs is “Sunnyside,” about a group of immigrants trying to gain citizenship in the United States.

It comes from creator Michael Schur, who’s also guiding Ted Danson and the rest of “The Good Place” cast into season four this fall.

Fellow Thursday comedy “Superstore” is back as well, along with “The Voice,” “The Blacklist,” all Three “Chicago” dramas and the record-breaking 21st season of “Law & Order: SVU.”
