NBC Releases Fall Schedule and Trailers for New Shows

The network makes available plot synopsis and new photos of 'Heroes Reborn' in addition to offering first-look footage of 'Blindspot', 'The Player' and Neil Patrick Harris' variety show.

AceShowbiz - NBC has become the first network to unveil its fall 2015 line-up. After axing some struggling series, the network replaces them with new shows, including "Blindspot" which is paired with "The Voice" on Mondays, "Heartbreaker" and "Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris" which follow "The Voice" one-hour show on Tuesdays, "Heroes Reborn" and "The Player" which sandwich "The Blacklist" on Thursdays, and "People Are Talking" which gets a Friday timeslot.

Trailers for these new shows have been released as well. While the "Heroes Reborn" trailer is similar to the previous promo video, the new official synopsis offers a hint at what the show would be about. In this "Heroes" reboot, a fresh crop of inspiring heroes "take on the ultimate struggle between those with extraordinary abilities and those with nefarious motives to hunt and harness their powers. Epic adventures await these newly empowered allies as they cross paths with some of the original characters (such as the beloved "HRG" and fan-favorite time-traveler Hiro Nakamura), unlocking the mysterious fate of the universe and their place within it."

The cast includes Jack Coleman, Zachary Levi, Masi Oka, Judith Shekoni, Robbie Kay, Henry Zebrowski, Kiki Sukezane, Ryan Guzman, Danika Yarosh, Toru Uchikado, Eve Harlow and Gatlin Green. New photos from the 13-episode event series have been released.

"Blindspot" from executive producer Greg Berlanti follows Jaimie Alexander's character, who is discovered naked in Times Square, completely covered in mysterious, intricate tattoos with no memory of who she is or how she got there. It's revealed that each mark represents a crime to solve.

"The Player" is a Las Vegas-set action thriller which follows a former military operative-turned-security expert who is drawn into a high-stakes game where an organization of wealthy individuals gamble on his ability to stop some of the biggest crimes imaginable from playing out. His goal is to take them down to get revenge for the death of his wife. It stars Philip Winchester and Wesley Snipes.

"Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris" is a live one-hour show featuring five-time Emmy winner Neil Patrick Harris. The show will feature "stunts, skits, pranks, audience interaction, musical numbers, giveaways and unlimited surprises."

"Heartbreaker" is a medical drama about Dr. Alex Panttiere (Melissa George), a "stubborn and fearless" heart-transplant surgeon with a "racy" personal life. It is based on the real life of Dr. Kathy Magliato.

"People Are Talking" starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar is one of the comedies recently picked up by the network. It revolves around "two diverse couples who are both neighbors and best friends. As they go through life side-by-side, they can't help but analyze and obsess about everything.
