Pick-ups are starting to be announced while the upfronts are happening next week Here's what NBC is up to http://insidetv.ew.com/2012/05/07/nbc-white-house/ http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/nbc-orders-white-house-comedy-321139 http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/gallery/nbc-2012-13-new-season-320999#1 Anne Heche stars in Save Me as a woman in a broken marriage who transforms into a version of herself and creates miracles along the way. NBC has ordered 13 episodes. It co-stars American Horror Story's Alexandra Breckenridge. Go On centers on an irreverent yet charming sportscaster (Matthew Perry) who tries to move on from loss and finds solace from the members of his mandatory group-therapy sessions. Transformers' Julie White will play Anne, a woman stuck in the anger stage of grief; Suzy Nakamura, Laura Benanti, Allison Miller and Khary Payton co-star. So I guess the Dane Cook show is out. Also, didn't ABC try a Matthew Perry sitcom awhile back where he's a curmudgeon? Revolution, from J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke, is described as an epic adventure thriller in which a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology -- computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights -- has mysteriously blacked out ... forever. Billy Burke, David Lyons, Giancarlo Esposito, Tracy Spiradakos, Graham Rogers, Anna Lise Phillips, Tim Guinee, Andrea Roth, JD Pardo and Zak Orth star in the drama from Warner Bros. Television. Jon Favreau directs the pilot. From Glee's Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler, The New Normal revolves around a blended family of a gay couple (Andrew Rannells, Justin Bartha) and the woman (Georgia King) who becomes a surrogate for them as they grow their family. Ellen Barkin co-stars with Nene Leakes on board as recurring. Of those shows, I might give Revolution a chance because it has a decent pedigree, but this year's string of big budget sci-fi shows that just sucked balls makes me hesitant. The Doctor House Vet seems like it could be funny as a parody but not as a full series. And, as always, looking forward to thekidslepthere's insights.
