WELCOME TO SWEDEN
 LOST IN TRANSLATION
We're spotlighting for you some of the hilarious new comedy series which are coming to the small screens this summer or this Fall today with the second part coming up tomorrow! We shall start with NBC (CBS, Fox and ABC's sitcoms will be ready for you tomorrow). Starting July 10th is their new sitcom WELCOME TO SWEDEN produced by Amy Poehler. Bruce Evans (Greg Poehler) is a successful money manager to the stars, living his life in New York with Emma (Josephine Bornebusch), the sweet woman from Sweden whom he loves and adores. When she makes the life-changing decision to move back to her native Stockholm to accept a prestigious banking job after being with Bruce for a year, she is surprised and thrilled that he agrees to move with her to begin a new life together.


ONE BIG HAPPY
NICK ZANO AND KELLY BROOK
Over at NBC they will also go into gay waters with ONE BIG HAPPY in which Elisha Cuthbert and her straight male best friend (Nick Zano) become pregnant via artificial insemination right before he meets and quickly marries the love of his life (Kelly Brook).

A TO Z
NEVER FALL FOR THE CUSTO- MER
NBC will also bring us hilarious romantic comedy A TO Z of love in which Cristin Milioti (HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER) and Ben Feldman (MAD MEN, LIVING WITH FRAN) play the lead roles. Ben Feldman plays a guy who works at a dating site and Cristin Milioti is a customer who ends up meeting him when she comes into the office after a glitch with the site.


UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT
 IT'S HER 1ST DAY OF EVERYTHING
 Sometime in the midseason NBC will bring us UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT in which  Ellie Kemper plays an upbeat woman who leaves a religious cult and discovers the  joys of her freedom in New York City, where she becomes roommates with a gay aspiring Broadway actor and gets hired as a nanny by a rich woman (Jane Krakowski)!

  1. That's the mom from How I Met Your Mom, right? I still haven't watched that last season--waiting for it to come to Netflix. I'm curious how Greg Poehler is related to Amy Poehler. Brother?

    1. I wouldn't know, dear, I haven't watched HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER... I tried a few times but it never made me laugh.
      I'm guessing Greg is her brother :)

    1. we do need new sitcoms! Many of the old ones have finished or have been cancelled this year. I've only watched three of them last season - SEAN SAVES THE WORLD, HAPPILLY DIVORCED and LAST MAN STANDING, and the first two have been killed :((((

    1. I really liked the trailer for A TO Z too! I just hope they won't do it they way the sitcom was originally announced - that it will follow their relationship from the courtship to the breakup...

  8. It's refreshing to see that there will be a new spate of comedy programmes airing. I think the mood needs lightening as the economy goes swirling down the toilet.

    I'm horrified that the American Red Cross isn't on site or on its way to help you guys. Usually France, England and US are on spot when something like this happens. Even as part of the EU France and England usually help independently.

    My prayers are with you and your people darling.

    1. So many sitcoms have been cancelled recently and the new batch is really needed. I just hope some of them will be good....

      France is helping, they even sent us their prime team today. UK and US not, but many people think that US is actually behind the floods, that they used their HAARP in Bosnia to cause those horrid, never before seen, torential clouds which poured rain for days over the Balkans, because they want to destroy our agriculture so that we would buy their GMO seeds.

    2. I looked at some of the pictures. Oh my God, it's terrifying. Houses with water up to the roof and I saw the landslides as well. I also read some stories about the brave rescues by the Russian Special Forces.

      CNN downplayed the flooding in an article I read. They said your President called the flooding "difficult" but that Serbia would recover. I was mad as hell.

      It wouldn't surprise me if they did cause the flooding. Don't buy those fecking seeds. They're trying to force them on Chile and the farmers are protesting.

      They use the fields where I live to make those seeds. Hundreds and hundreds of miles of experimental fields. The crops from those plants are not eaten in America and many of them look as if they are mutants. They don't even harvest the plants. They just mow them down with their big John Deere tractors in the fall. They also have a rule that once you use their seeds it is illegal for you to use any other type.

    3. Russian rescuers are really heroic, you wouldn't believe how they throw themselves into the water to rescue people, while our own people just stand and watch... We wouldn't know what to do without them, our government is so unprepared and rotten.

      And our president is the special case of a scum, dear. It took him two days to issue a statement while people were already drowning and dying. And now he and his wife are going around with cameras for personal marketing....

      We have a law according to which GMO is strictly forbidden here, but since the ruling party has been supported by the US I wouldn't be surprised if they secretly put GMO into our system.....
      Yes, once you use GMO seeds you cannot use the natural ones because GMO will dominate the field (and the surrounding ones) for centuries... GMO seeds behave like aggressive predators

  10. I had a pen pal from Sweden when I was in middle school. Such a sweet girl. I think that one looks like it might be a cute show. I may add that one to my list of must see. You are right, we definitely need some new comedies!

  14. None of these shows look particularly appealing. I think they're trying to recapture the magic of Will & Grace (a show I adore).
