Freshman Scripted Drama to Debut June 23 While Pair of New Alternative Shows Launch July 11

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - April 25, 2013 - NBC has announced that its upcoming summer drama series "Crossing Lines" will launch Sunday, June 23 with a special two-hour premiere (9-11 p.m. ET).

The network has also set July 11 as the debut date for its two new summer alternative series "The Winner Is ..." (9-10 p.m. ET) and "Hollywood Game Night" (10-11 p.m. ET). Each will air weekly on Thursday nights.

"Crossing Lines," from creator Edward Bernero, taps into the charter of the International Criminal Court to investigate serialized cross-border crimes and to hunt down global criminals. The series stars William Fichtner, Donald Sutherland, Marc Lavoine, Gabriella Pession, Tom Wlaschiha, Moon Dailly and Richard Flood.

The series is produced by Tandem Communications, Bernero Productions, in co-production with TF1 Production/TF1 Network and commissioned by Sony Pictures Television Networks. Bernero, Rola Bauer, Jonas Bauer and Tim Halkin serve as executive producers.

"Crossing Lines" will normally air in its 10 p.m. Sunday timeslot beginning June 30. NBC has ordered 10 episodes.

Hosted by Nick Lachey, "The Winner Is ..." infuses the performance of a singing competition series and the strategy of a game show. Each episode features six acts that go head to head each week and sing for a shot at a $1 million grand prize. The aim of the game is simple: Contestants must believe in their own performance, edge out their competition and avoid cash temptations to move forward.

The series, produced by Talpa Media USA Inc. and Universal Television, is executive-produced by Stijn Bakkers and Craig Plestis.

"Hollywood Game Night," hosted by Jane Lynch, features A-list celebrities partaking in a cocktail party atmosphere that is based on the real-life game nights of creator Sean Hayes. The series is produced by Hayes' Hazy Mills Productions, Mission Control Media and Universal Television. Hayes, Todd Milliner, Michael Agbabian and Dwight D. Smith are executive producers.
