NEW 2015 SITCOMS ORDERED INTO SERIES: NBC'S 'PEOPLE ARE TALKING' WITH MARK PAUL GOSSELAAR, 'SUPERSTORE' WITH BEN FELDMAN, ABC'S 'REAL O'NEALS' & 'UNCLE BUCK', FOX'S 'GRANDFATHERED' WITH JOHN STAMOS, 'GRINDER' WITH ROB LOWE

NBC'S 'PEOPLE ARE TALKING'
 WITH MARK PAUL GOSSELAAR
It's that time of the year when networks are ordering new projects into series, so today I'm presenting you with some of the comedy shows that have been greenlit so far! First off with dashing Mark Paul Gosselaar whose sitcom PEOPLE ARE TALKING has been ordered by NBC. He, Meaghan Rath, Tone Bell and Bresha Webb will play two couples, best friends and neighbours. The sometime neurotic couples can't help but over-analyse every facet of their lives, from race to sex and beyond. The sitcom will air on Friday Evenings following UNDATEABLE all live 3rd season episodes.

NBC OPENS UP A 'SUPERSTORE'
BEN FELDMAN, AMERICA FERRERA
NBC has also picked up SUPERSTORE sitcom with America Ferrera and Ben Feldman about a unique family of employees at a super-sized megastore. From the bright-eyed newbies and the seen-it-all veterans to the clueless summer hires and in-it-for-life managers, together they hilariously tackle the day-to-day grind of rabid bargain hunters, riot-causing sales and nap-worthy training sessions. 

ABC'S 'REAL O'NEALS'
BEING GAY, BEING REAL
ABC has ordered  REAL O'NEALS, about a seemingly perfect Catholic family, whose lives take an unexpected turn when when their son comes out as gay. Instead of ruining their family, the honesty triggers a new chapter where everyone stops pretending to be perfect and actually starts being real. Martha Plimpton, Jay R. Ferguson and Noah Galvin lead the cast.

'UNCLE BUCK' BRINGS LUCK
They've also ordered UNCLE BUCK (Mike Epps), a fun loving but irresponsible guy who needs a job and a place to stay. By happy coincidence, his nieces and nephew’s Nanny has just quit and his brother needs his help. His unconventional personality just may make him the right fit for the family and they may be the answer to his problems, too. James Lesure and Nia Long also star.


'GRANDFATHERED' AT FOX
WITH JOHN STAMOS
Fox has picked up GRANDFATHERED for series. John Stamos is playing a version of himself: a charismatic longtime bachelor whose life is upended when he discovers he’s a father — and a grandfather. THE OFFICE's Danny Chun is writing the script.


'GRINDER' AT FOX
ROBIN LOWE AND FRED SAVAGE
Another 80's star Rob Lowe will also have his sitcom at Fox. GRINDER will see him play a beloved TV lawyer while Fred Savage will play his brother. When his long-running hit series comes to an end, he finds himself at a crossroads in life and decides to move back to his small home town, thinking he has the experience to take over his family’s law firm.

  2. I'm with Sandra here. I thought I'd be into People Are Talking, but the trailer just wasn't very interesting.

    Maybe Superstore will make the list once I see that trailer.

  5. Superstore sounds like fun!!! Although none of the employees at Super Wal-Mart look like you'd want to see a show about them!

  6. Interesting selection. I loved the movie Uncle Buck. I wonder if the story has staying power, though, as a series. I hope they have good writers.

    1. fingers crossed, I'm guessing they will pair the sitcom together with LAST MAN STANDING if that one gets picked up for the fifth season as we hope! And pray

  7. Real O'Neils should be interesting. We all know how narrow minded the world still is.

    Sorry I wan't in yesterday but it was Mothers Day and The Spawn didn't even call me. I spent most of the day in tears and didn't feel like talking to anyone.

    1. yep, REAL O'NEILS are inspired by the life of that guy that has a show about sex on MTV, forgot what his name was....

      Don't cry, dahlink, she probably didn't even notice it was that date. I often forget which day it is .... Did the boy call you at least?
      You have to get used to your kids forgetting you a bit now :) When they marry, get their own families, work, careers... you and hubby will become the sole focus to each other.... especially if the kids move and go to live somewhere else :( It is better to get prepared for this as something that is a part of life.

    2. Ya, my baby boy called from work break and really a phone call is all I need. Cards are just a waste of money.

      Irish Mammy's never let go their children. Our hearts beat with theirs until the day we die. Yes, we get on with lives and pretend it doesn't hurt not to see them. But our hearts break in the longing for the sight of them. The best we can do is to never let them know it hurts as it is natural for them to move on. However, we do know that when they have children of their own, they will understand just how much they mean to us. And when that happens, the come back to us as when they were little again.

    3. You would probably fit well here in my country, since in our culture, either due to money or tradition, 70% or more children live with their parents in family homes forever. Especially down in Serbia where people would build houses on their properties for their children and then they live all together .... And in cities many live their children and grandchildren in small flats.... We're much more tied to our families (not me myself of course) than in Western cultures. And old people usually live with their families till they die, they are not put to senior homes...

  8. I don't watch too many comedies, but Superstore sounds like it could be really funny. I wonder how much it'll spoof Walmart and Walmart goers.

  9. Seemingly perfect? Before or after, for I don't notice any difference.
