Get ‘em while they’re hot! Here’s the new shows on NBC, announced yesterday, along with trailers for the fall slate. NBC: where the comedies look…fine?…and the dramas are based on Hellblazer. Check the trailers out below, and then we’ll discuss.

A to Z
“This is the A-to-Z story of Andrew (Ben Feldman) and Zelda (Cristin Milioti) — a pair that almost wasn’t — and all that happened from the day they met.”

Bad Judge
“No excuses, no apologies, no compromises. Wild child Rebecca Wright (Kate Walsh) knows how to have a good time, but she also happens to be one of L.A.’s toughest and most respected criminal court judges.”

Constantine
“Based on the wildly popular  DC Comics series Hellblazer, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan) specializes in giving hell… hell.”

Marry Me
“Six years ago, Annie (Casey Wilson) and Jake (Ken Marino) bonded over their mutual love of nachos and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Now, after returning from a romantic two-week island vacation, Jake’s all set to pop the question. Before he can ask, though, Annie lets loose on Jake for his inability to commit.

The Mysteries of Laura
“Debra Messing stars as Laura Diamond, a brilliant NYPD homicide detective who balances her “Columbo” day job with a crazy family life that includes two unruly twin boys and a soon-to-be ex-husband (Josh Lucas) — also a cop — who just can’t seem to sign the divorce papers.”

State of Affairs
“Each day the President is faced with dozens of life and death decisions, and to prioritize the biggest international crises facing the country, one top CIA analyst — Charleston Tucker (Katherine Heigl) — assembles the President’s Daily Briefing (PDB). This list of the most vital security issues facing the nation brings with it moral and political judgment calls for Charleston and her trusted group of brilliant analysts at the agency.”


Debra Messing: Yash.
Ken Marino in anything: Yash yash.
Kate Walsh: Her last name might as well be Television, since she loves it so much she probably married it a decade ago during Private Practice. Seriously, that woman is just TV personified. She’s in everything, so it’s hard to tell if Bad Judge
Ben Feldman: Our favorite Mad Men Jew! Sooo glad he made it past pilot season!
Katherine Heigl as CIA anything: No? Obviously not.
Well, at least all the shows about women involve them working in some type of law enforcement, and all the shows about guys involve them being goofy boyfriends…from hell! But we can’t help thinking that State of Affairs is going to be too much like a Scandal/Homeland mashup, only with a way more unlikeable protagonist. She is definitely having an affair with a terrorist and/or the president, right? I mean, I’m not being crazy…it’s basically in the show’s title.
