NBC has announced full season pickups of three of its new shows.
Sci-fi drama “Revolution,” Matthew Perry’s comedy “Go On” and the Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler produced sitcom, “The New Normal,” were given full-season commitments for the 2012-2013 television season, Jennfier Salke, President of NBC Entertainment announced on Tuesday.
“We’re impressed with the imagination and creative direction of the entire team on ‘Revolution,’ not to mention the immediately strong response we got from the audience,” Salke said in a statement. “Ordering the full season of this show is a pleasure. Thanks to J.J. Abrams, Erik Kripke, Jon Favreau, and everyone at Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television for their dedication to making a truly unique series. And I personally love to escape into a world where there is no power, the phone doesn’t ring, and the pace of life slows down — if only for one hour a week!
“We’re also very proud of our new comedy block of ‘Go On’ and ‘The New Normal.’ In partnering with Matthew Perry for ‘Go On,’ creator Scott Silveri has created a comedy with a highly original voice that deftly combines humor and emotion. And Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler have created a truly unique family in ‘The New Normal’ that is reflective of the changing dynamics of the world we live in,” she added. “These shows are both welcome additions to our new lineup!”
“Revolution” airs Mondays at 10/9c, “Go On” airs Tuesdays at 9/8c and “The New Normal” airs at 9:30/8:30c, also on Tuesdays, on NBC.
