Clips of NBC's New Drama, Comedy and Alternative Show


Watch the replacement of 'Heroes' on Monday slot, Becki Newton's latest starring vehicle and a new alternative program that brings joy to schools.

NBC is going one step ahead of other networks by releasing not only the full Fall schedule but also clips from its new series. "Heroes" old slot is now occupied by new drama called "The Event" which is starring Jason Ritter and Sarah Roemer. Meanwhile, "Law & Order" is replaced by its new franchise "Law & Order: Los Angeles".

Based on the clips, it's known that "The Event" is an emotional high-octane conspiracy thriller that follows Sean Walker (Ritter), an Everyman who investigates the mysterious disappearance of his fiance, Leila (Roemer). The previews also gave away other characters such as the newly elected U.S. President Martinez (Blair Underwood) and Sophia (Laura Innes).

In the comedy field, NBC has prepared "Love Bites" which is starring "Ugly Betty" alum Becki Newton as one of the last two single girls standing after all of their friends get married. There's a scene where Greg Grunberg and Craig Robinson are on plane talking about Jennifer Love Hewitt. The comedy is put on Thursdays at 10/9c.

NBC includes an alternative show called "School Pride" in its curriculum for Fall. Much like "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition", the show has a team visiting schools that are in extreme need of repair. In the sneak peek, the team is visiting Enterprise Middle School in Compton, Calif. and is overwhelmed with maintenance issues. The program shares Friday 8/7c with "Who Do You Think You Are?"

"This new schedule brings NBC back to basics with its commitment to quality scripted programming," said Jeff Gaspin, Chairman of NBC Universal Television Entertainment. "Our new shows are distinctive and feature a combination of the biggest talent, the brightest new stars and the strongest auspices in television."

Other new series in the Fall are "Chase", "Undercovers", "Outsourced", and "Outlaw". Meanwhile, other picked-up new series such as "Friends With Benefits", "The Paul Reiser Show", "Perfect Couples", "The Cape" and "Harry's Law" are reserved for Midseason along with "Parks and Recreation".
