AceShowbiz - A few days ago, NBC revealed its fall 2016-17 schedule and debuted promos for its new series "Timeless", "This Is Us" and "The Good Place". The rest namely "Powerless", "Emerald City", "The Blacklist: Redemption", "Chicago Justice" and more are saved for midseason, but the trailers have now made their way out online for viewing pleasure, though they're not the official ones.
"Powerless" is a workplace comedy set in the DC Comics universe where about the reality of working life for a normal, powerless person in a world of superheroes and villains. Vanessa Hudgens stars as a non-powered human who works at an insurance company and loves her job, but finds herself increasingly exasperated by the disruptive antics of the various superheroes that proliferate in her city. Some superheroes are showing off their powers in the video that also name drops Wonder Woman and Green Lantern.
"Emerald City" is "modern and dark re-imagining of" the classic tale "The Wizard of Oz". Adria Arjona takes the lead role of Dorothy Gale who is swept into a world far removed from our own - a mystical land of competing realms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy. This unsuspecting young woman is believed to be the key to end this darkness.
"The Blacklist: Redemption" trailer simply reintroduces Ryan Eggold's Tom Keen, Famke Janssen's Susan "Scottie" Hargrave and Edi Gathegi's Mr. Solomon, characters who have appeared on the flagship series "The Blacklist". They now work together as a team and employ their unique skills and resources in a dangerous world of deadly criminals.
"Chicago Justice" is a spin-off from "Chicago P.D.". Just like their brethren in the Chicago P.D., the State's Attorney's dedicated team of prosecutors and investigators navigates heated city politics and controversy head-on while fearlessly pursuing justice. Philip Winchester, Carl Weathers, Nazneen Contractor, Joelle Carter and Ryan-James Hatanaka are among the cast.
Marlon Wayans stars as the title character in "Marlon", which is loosely inspired by his real life. The family comedy centers on a loving (but immature) father committed to co-parenting his two kids with his very-together ex-wife. While his misguided fatherly advice, unstoppable larger-than-life personality and unpredictable Internet superstardom might get in the way sometimes, for Marlon family really always does come first - even if he's the biggest kid of all.
"Midnight, Texas" is a drama mystery based on the hit book series by Charlaine Harris ("True Blood"). It centers on a remote Texas town where no one is who they seem. From vampires and witches to psychics and hit men, Midnight is a mysterious safe haven for those who are different. As the town members fight off outside pressures from rowdy biker gangs, ever-suspicious cops and their own dangerous pasts, they band together and form a strong and unlikely family. Francois Arnaud, Dylan Bruce, Parisa Fitz-Henley and more are starring.
