NBC at TCA: Greenblatt Outlines Latest Plans for Midseason, Summer and Fall
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt, fresh off the network's best fall performance in nine years, had plenty to crow about during the Peacock's executive session at the TCA Winter Press Tour.

Among its ratings highlights: finishing #1 or tied for #1 in adults 18-49 for 12 of the 14 weeks thus far this season, not to mention being the only broadcast network up year-to-year in said demo.

Today however was about looking ahead as Greenblatt gave some broad strokes beyond its previously announced plans (read the story):

"Hannibal" and "Save Me" might hit the schedule before the season is over. Greenblatt wouldn't give specifics as said plans are still being discussed. He went on to add that the first table read for Michael J. Fox's new comedy is in two weeks while the Jonathan Rhys Meyers-led "Dracula" will go into production in a couple of months, both of which will be ready for the fall. Also set to begin filming soon: Neil Cross's pirate drama "Crossbones," however no target date was given.

"American Ninja Warrior" will return this summer. Greenblatt affirmed season five is on tap alongside the previously announced eighth season of "America's Got Talent" as well as the just announced original drama "Camp" (read the story).

The new season of "The Voice" will run through June. Season four - with Shakira and Usher spelling regular judges Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera - returns Monday, March 25 and will potentially run for 14 weeks, on par with season three (15 weeks).

"Surprise With Jenny McCarthy" won't be moving forward. Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, confirmed said development following the panel. The pilot - in which McCarthy helped give people surprises of a lifetime, from "dramatic reunions to surprise announcements to good-natured pranks with fantastic feel-good twists" - was announced at NBC's upfront last year. A. Smith & Co. and ITV Studios co-produced the project.
