Here’s the Complete Fall 2018 TV Schedule for All 5 Broadcast Networks
This week the five broadcast networks each unveiled their Fall 2018 TV schedules ahead of their upfront presentations, complete with new series orders and returning favorites.

The Tim Allen sitcom “Last Man Standing” has jumped ship from ABC to Fox, and while NBC salvaged “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” from Fox, fans will have to wait until midseason for that show’s sixth season return. CBS’s revival of “Murphy Brown” and “Magnum P.I.” hope to be an answer to the success of ABC’s “Roseanne” reboot, while the CW has a reboot of their own in the newly picked up series “Charmed.”

Some of the promising new shows include NBC’s comedy “I Feel Bad” getting the lead-in from “Will & Grace,” Lil Rel Howery’s Fox multi-cam sitcom “Rel” getting the lead-in from “Family Guy” on Sundays, and “The Kids Are All Right” scored a coveted lead-in from “Roseanne” over at ABC.

I Feel Bad” (NBC)

We’re excited for this female-centric comedy from writer Aseem Batra and executive producer Amy Poehler. In a culture that likes to pretend that women have to be perfect at all times, this looks like a refreshing take on motherhood and beyond.

It had long been suspected that the show’s fifth season would be its last. The news was made all but official when “The Last Ship” star Jocko Sims, who plays Lt. Carlton Burk on the series, booked a series regular role on the recently-ordered NBC medical drama “New Amsterdam.”

Season 5 of “The Last Ship” does not currently have a premiere date.

The Last Ship” also stars Adam Baldwin, Bridget Regan, Charles Parnell, Travis Van Winkle, Marissa Neitling, Christina Elmore, Jocko Sims, Bren Foster, and Kevin Michael Martin. Based on William Brinkley’s novel, the series follows the Navy destroyer U.

5 Takeaways From NBCUniversal’s Upfront

  • Variety
NBCUniversal kicked off the broadcast week of upfronts Monday with its presentation at Radio City Music Hall. Here are the five key takeaways:

1. Facebook is worth kicking.

It didn’t take NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke long to get his first veiled dig at Facebook in during his address at the top of the show.

“Digital companies are being accused of invasion of people’s privacy, accused of false measurement,” Burke said. He didn’t call out the social-media giant by name, but he might as well have. At the other end of the Facebook-diss spectrum was a video featuring ad-sales chief Linda Yaccarino edited into footage from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s recent Senate hearing. The video began with Yaccarino sitting down behind a table in a faux Senate chamber, then standing back up, pulling a booster seat off her chair and tossing it aside: “Someone give that back to Zuckerberg,

NBC Upfront: 9 Takeaways From Big Radio City Music Hall Sales Pitch

The 2018 broadcast upfronts are officially upon us, and NBC just wrapped its big Radio City Music Hall sales pitch to potential advertisers. There was a little something for everyone — especially if you’re between the ages of 18 and 49.

NBCUniversal began its annual event with a star-studded musical parody. Unfortunately, not everybody (TheWrap included) got to see it from never-ending line down 50th Street. More on that in a bit.

The suite of networks spent the next 120 minutes or so showing off new series like “Abby’s” (pictured above) “New Amsterdam,” “The Titan Games,” “Deadly Class,” “Treadstone,” and “Very Cavallari,” to name just a handful.

Yes We Can: Female Broadcast Drama Directors Excel With Better Pilot-To-Series Batting Average Than Male Helmers

  • Deadline
The tide is finally turning for female helmers vying to break into the male-dominated field of broadcast drama directing.

This pilot season marked a breakthrough with 14 of the 42 broadcast drama pilots going to female directors, reversing an alarming trend –four pilots directed by women in 2015, two in 2016 and just one last year.

Eight of the 14 drama pilots, or 57%, went to series. That includes ABC’s The Fix (Larysa Kondracki and The Rookie (Liz Friedlander), CBSRed Line (Victoria Mahoney), Fox’s Proven Innocent (Patricia Riggen), NBC’s New Amsterdam (Kate Dennis), The InBetween (Charlotte Sieling) and The Village (Minkie Spiro), and the CW’s Roswell, New Mexico (Julie Plec). Of the eight helmers, three were first pilot directors, and only one, Friedlander, had previously helmed a broadcast pilot.

Meanwhile, 46% of the drama pilots directed by men this year (13 out of 28) were picked up to series..

Drama pilots traditionally have been one of the toughest directing gigs to land, with the networks and studios imposing very high standards for level of accomplishments required for it. Drama pilots are a risky bet, costing $7 million-$8 million and sometimes as much as $15 million, and networks have been very conservative, handing jobs to either a big feature helmer or a veteran TV pilot director with a proven track record.

The problem with the dearth of broadcast drama pilots directed by women was trifold — there weren’t enough well-established female directors — in features or drama series — who would be getting straight pilot offers; there weren’t that many female episodic drama directors who have enough experience to land open pilot-directing assignments; and there wasn’t strong enough will on the part of the networks to give such helmers assignments.

All of that started to change over the past 1-2 years with Initiatives like NBC’s Female Forward, designed to give female directors the opportunity to get training and helm episodes of NBC series, and Ryan Murphy’s Half, aiming to hire 50% female directors to work on all his television shows, as well as series like Ava DuVernay’s Own drama series Queen Sugar, which employs all female directors, almost all of whom are women of color.

Exemplifying the progress is NBC, which was in the back of the pack last year when none of its 13 drama and comedy pilots was directed by a woman. This year, out of NBC’s 15 pilots, almost half, seven — three dramas and four comedies — were directed by women. What’s more, all three NBC drama pilots directed by women went to series, a 100% success ratio.

There have been a string of milestones for female directors over the past year, including Patty Jenkins setting a new boxoffice record with Wonder Woman and Victoria Mahoney, who just got her Red Line pilot picked up to series by CBS, recently becoming the first African American woman to direct a Star Wars movie when she was tapped as Jj Abrams’ second unit director on Star Wars: Episode IX.

The strong showing for female drama directors this broadcast season is just the next step toward an even playing field.

New Amsterdam Trailer: Ryan Eggold Returns to TV!

New Amsterdam looks set to be a fresh take on the medical drama.

NBC recently placed an order for the series and has announced it will air Tuesdays 10/9c out of megahit This Is Us.

The series was formerly known as Bellevue, but has been given the New Amsterdam title. Yes, it's the same title of a failed Fox drama from several years ago, so we fully expect the name to change again.

The official logline reads:

The new Bellevue Hospital director’s maverick approach disrupts the status quo while always prioritizing patient care.

Located in Manhattan, Bellevue is the only hospital in the world that has the capability to treat ebola patients, prisoners from Rikers Island and the President of the United States all under one roof.

“Manifest”

When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved.

Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible. From Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke comes an emotionally rich, unexpected journey into a world grounded in hope, heart and destiny.

How can he help? Well, the doctors and staff have heard this before. Not taking “no” for an answer, Dr. Goodwin must disrupt the status quo and prove he will stop at nothing to breathe new life into this understaffed, underfunded and underappreciated hospital — the only one in the world capable of treating Ebola patients, prisoners from Rikers and the President of the United States under one roof — and return it to the glory that put it on the map.

The cast includes Ryan Eggold, Freema Agyeman, Janet Montgomery, Jocko Sims, Anupam Kher and Tyler Labine.

But that’s Ok, right? Nobody can have it all and do it perfectly. From executive producer Amy Poehler comes a modern comedy about being perfectly Ok with being imperfect.

The cast includes Sarayu Blue, Paul Adelstein, Aisling Bea, Zach Cherry, Johnny Pemberton and James Buckley.

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’: NBC Boss Reveals Why He Saved the Show, and When It Will Be Back

NBC would have never let its sister studio sell “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” to Fox had the network known Andy Samberg would ultimately be cast in the lead role. That’s one of the reasons the network was quick to grab the show when Fox cancelled it last week, according to NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt.

“He didn’t sign on until it was already set up [at Fox],” Greenblatt told reporters on Sunday morning. “We thought it was a missed opportunity from the beginning. We kept encouraging Fox to build it and schedule it right and do right by it, and I guess they came to a place they couldn’t keep it on. We jumped on it really quickly.

“We think it fits into our brand of comedy in many ways better than it ever fit on Fox… It all feels like it goes along side shows like ‘A.P. Bio,’ ‘Will & Grace,

“Once again, we are coming into the season from a place of strength and stability, which makes us bullish about a scheduling strategy that delivers top-notch original programming not just in the fall, but year round,” said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “We have a very strong fall schedule, as always, but winter, spring and summer are every bit as important to us, and this year we’re putting our talent and our money where our mouth is. This schedule builds on the type of programming that makes NBC #1 year after year: bold, humanistic, compelling dramas; an unmatched collection of the highest-quality unscripted shows for the entire family; and one of the strongest comedy lineups on television that is unique to the legacy of the NBC brand.”

“Abby’S”

From the producers of “The Good Place” comes a hilariously aspirational new comedy about the best bar in San Diego, home to good prices, great company and, of course, Abby. This unlicensed, makeshift bar nestled in her backyard is the opposite of everything annoying about today’s party scene. There are rules at Abby’s: no cell phones (not even to “look something up”), earning a seat at the bar takes time and losing a challenge means drinking a limey, sugary “not-beer” drink. As the oddball cast of regulars will tell you, hanging out at Abby’s is a coveted honor. But once you’re in, you’re family.

The cast includes Natalie Morales, Nelson Franklin, Kimia Behpoornia, Jessica Chaffin, Leonard Ouzts and Neil Flynn.

Josh Malmuth will write and executive produce. Pamela Fryman will direct and executive produce the pilot. Michael Schur and David Miner also executive produce. “Abby’s” is produced by Universal Television, Fremulon and 3 Arts Entertainment.

“I Feel Bad”

Emet is the perfect mom, boss, wife, friend and daughter. Ok, she’s not perfect. In fact, she’s just figuring it out like the rest of us. Sure, she feels bad when she has a sexy dream about someone other than her husband, or when she pretends not to know her kids when they misbehave in public, or when she uses her staff to help solve personal problems. But that’s Ok, right? Nobody can have it all and do it perfectly. From executive producer Amy Poehler comes a modern comedy about being perfectly Ok with being imperfect.

The cast includes Sarayu Blue, Paul Adelstein, Aisling Bea, Zach Cherry, Johnny Pemberton and James Buckley.

Aseem Batra will write and executive produce. Julie Anne Robinson will direct and executive produce the pilot. Amy Poehler, Dave Becky and Josh Maurer also executive produce. “I Feel Bad” is produced by Universal Television, Paper Kite Productions, CannyLads Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment.

New Alternative Series

“The Titan Games”

Inspired by Dwayne Johnson’s desire to motivate global audiences to reach their potential both mentally and physically, this inspiring new reality series offers everyday people the opportunity to step inside the Titan arena and achieve the impossible. Every episode, six contenders compete against one of six reigning Titans. They will be challenged in incredible, head-to-head battles designed to test the mind, body and heart of our competitors. Sheer brute strength won’t be enough. If a contender rises to the occasion and defeats one of the Titans, they take their place and join the elite Titan group. But once one becomes a Titan, they must be victorious every week to keep their spot. In the epic season finale, Titans battle it out against one another in the hope of becoming the last male and female standing.

Dwayne Johnson, Arthur Smith, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia, Brian Gewirtz and Toby Gorman executive produce. “The Titan Games” is produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio, A. Smith & Co. Productions and Seven Bucks Productions.
