FIRST GLIMPSES ONTO 2012 NEW SHOWS: "1600 PENN", SF "REVOLUTION", MATTHEW PERRY'S "GO ON", "GUYS WITH KIDS", "SAVE ME"! JESSE SPENCER IN 'CHICAGO FIRE"! JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT'S "CLIENT LIST" GETS 2ND SEASON

It's that time of the year, people, when we hear which of the shows and pilots are big channels going to order for a whole season and when we can see the first glimpses of the new series.
 PRESIDENTS AND VETS
When it comes to NBC they've decided to order a whole season of 1600 PEN, which will be a brand new family sitcom in which the story is set in the White House revolving around Mr President, his family
and his staff. Bill Poolman plays the head of the state, while DARMA AND GREG's Jenna Elfman plays the first lady. That is not the only new comedy show to get a full season order at NBC, since they've
picked up ANIMAL PRACTICE too, in which the story centres on a “House”-like veterinarian (played by Justin Kirk), who loves animals but usually hates their owners (especially the new woman who runs the clinic).
 SF REVOLUTION
But as I previously informed you in our SPOTLIGHT ON 2012/2O13 TV PILOTS, NBC will also go sf this year with REVOLUTION, for which you can check out the first image showing the whole cast. The 
new show is being described as a high-octane action drama following a group of characters struggling to survive and reunite with loved ones in a world where all forms of energy have mysteriously ceased to exist. The show is produced by STAR TREK's J.J. Abrams!

 NBC SITCOMS
Speaking of first images from new shows, you can also check out the first glimpse into NBC's new sitcom GO ON which has also been picked up for a whole series: starring always hilarious FRIENDS' star Matthew Perry, who plays an irreverent yet charming sportscaster who tries to move on from loss with the help of the members of his mandatory group therapy sessions.
NBC has also ordered full season of SAVE ME, which promises to be a truly hilarious one: Anne Heche stars as a woman who lets herself – and her marriage – go until she undergoes an “awakening” that transforms her into a desirable and outspoken woman who just might be channelling god.
Another sitcom you will be watching at NBC full season is GUYS WITH KIDS which revolves around three 30-something guys (Jesse Bradford, Anthony Anderson, Zach Cregger) who enjoy the adventures of parenting despite the fact they haven’t grown up themselves.
 CHICAGO FIRE
NBC will also air a whole season of CHICAGO FIRE, a show which is described as a action-driven drama exploring the complex and heroic
men and women of the Chicago Fire Department. The cast will be filled with stunning faces, lead by two gorgeous hunks top model Taylor Kinney (known as Lady Gaga's boyfriend) and HOUSE's Jesse Spencer!
CLIENT LIST 2ND SEASON
Another good news for those of you who are obsessed with Jennifer Love Hewitt (or with certain parts of her body) is that Lifetime has renewed her new show CLIENT LIST. Unlike the first season which 
had 10 episodes, the second will have 15, due to the show being Lifetime's best viewed debut show in almost three years back. It tells the story of Texas housewife Riley Parks (Hewitt) who, after being deserted by her husband, takes a job at a seemingly traditional day spa only to learn that sexual favours are being offered there on the side. Conflicted at first, she seizes the opportunity and takes the job, balancing two starkly different lives — one as a single mom in a conservative town struggling to provide for her family and the other as a masseuse working with a rowdy and unpredictable group of women.

  2. Shouldn't Poolman be kicked out of the white house by now? After all Independance DAt was like 15 years ago, he had his terms and then some..haha

    Animal Practice sounds like fun for the cat and Revolution sounds like one I'd like too, we shall see. Not sure on the rest though.

    2. Yeah let's just hope it doesn't end up cut like the rest of things on NBC seem too. But then they do give some shows a chance like Chuck, so you never know.

  3. Revolution sounds good to me, and with Abrams behind the helm, you can guarantee at least an explosive pilot :)

  5. Who is Bill Poolman, is he the same guy Bill Pullman, who acted as President in Independence day movie?

  7. Another post that leaves me both happy and sad...

    I'm happy because of the comedy Animal Practice, that I'm sure will highlight mostly DOGS, not cats, despite what Pat thinks. I've been a fan of Tyler Labine since Reaper. I also want to see Matthew Perry succeed in something again, please!! So maybe Go On will be it?

    But, then I'm sad because I'm reminded that my narcissist, pill-popping, favorite doctor of all time, who I wish was real so he could fix my Migraines...House...is coming to an end, in what? Two more episodes? *sigh*

    =)

  11. Hmm... I've heard a lot about that Revolution one.

  12. I can't help but think a lot of these shows will be cancelled after the first season

    ReplyDelete
  13. I am seriously hoping that REVOLUTION will be awesome. I need more awesome series after being impressed so much by Sherlock.

    The rest of the series in your post are not looking tempting for me ;)

  14. To be honest, none of those shows really stood out to me. Maybe Revolution will be interesting, not sure yet.

  16. Revolution sounds interesting, but I'm not sure about 1600 Penn. Of course, I'm always a sucker for a good show about firefighters. I hope Chicago Fire does justice to our awesome men and women who run into burning buildings to save people.
