NBC’s highest profile new show is their entry in the DC Comics takeover of TV, Constantine, and they are relying on returning shows like The Blacklist, Grimm, Hannibal, Parks and Rec and The Voice. As far as new shows go, the Peacock seems to be doubling down on comedies after cancelling pretty much all of them besides About a Boy and Parks and Rec, which is ending next season, so they are probably desperate for something to fill the gaps. Check out the trailers for the new shows below.
State of Affairs

I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
