Now that most of the major pickups, cancellations and renewals have come to pass, the core networks set about revealing their fall schedules, as well as trailers and loglines for their latest offerings. First up is NBC, with a look at everything from the Jaimie Alexander Naked in A Bag Show, to Mark-Paul Gosselaar’s new comedy and even Wesley Snipes‘ new drama.
In the words of Chris Traeger, it has literally not been that long since we last saw Rob Lowe on television. After returning to bid farewell to Parks and Recreation in the series finale, Lowe is heading right back to TV with his very own sitcom for Fox. The network has officially given a full series order to The Grinder, the new series from the writers of Yes Man and Jack Black’s new indie comedy The D Train.
Compounding the shortage of post-apocalyptic TV these days, NBC has made some curious choices in the realms of dystopian drama and comedy (goodbye ‘Revolution’ and ‘Parks,’ hello three-camera!), so why not combine the two? The peacock has recruited Rob Lowe, ‘The Office’’s Jenna Fischer and Megan Mullally for a new hour-long dramedy, fittingly enough titled ‘Apocalypse.’
It’s not surprising to learn that ‘St. Elmo’s Fire’ isn’t a very good movie. But as an artifact of the time, it’s inherently fascinating as one of only two Brat Pack movies.
Though the exit won't yet take place for a few months, 'Parks and Recreation' fans are already lamenting the series loss of stars Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones, whose characters Chris Traeger and Ann Perkins have already begun to eye their Pawnee exits. 'Parks and Recreation' may have its own scheduling problems for season 5, but Lowe assures fans that both he and Jones will find the space to return to the series, with no Amy Poehler to stand in their way.
NBC's 'Parks and Recreation' may count among its permanent losses this year Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe, but Lowe at least doesn't seem to be going very far. NBC has already given a pilot commitment to 'The Pro,' a new tennis-themed comedy for the former Chris Traeger, but will it prove as literally hilarious as its predecessor?
Yesterday 'Parks and Recreation' fans were shocked to learn that both series regulars Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones were planning departures midway through the upcoming sixth season of NBC's acclaimed comedy. Now, it seems Lowe may already have rebounded with his own NBC sitcom on the horizon, while 'Parks' showrunner Mike Schur has opened up to address the departures.
Earlier today we heard the news that 'Parks and Recreation' guest actor Lucy Lawless would return for the upcoming season 6 premiere, but the series may have a much bigger spot to fill that originally thought. New reports making the round suggest that series regulars Rob Lowe (Chris Traeger) and Rashida Jones (Ann Perkins) will depart the series.
Literally amazing news for 'Californication' fans today, as even though the sexy Showtime series won't maintain a presence at Comic-Con 2013 (you can still catch David Duchovny at the 'X-Files' reunion panel), the upcoming seventh season added yet another high-profile guest star. 'Parks and Recreation' star Rob Lowe will return as his troubled actor character, Eddie Nero, but for how long?
Steven Soderbergh's long-in-the-works Liberace bio-picture 'Behind the Candelabra' is starting to fill its ranks, and it looks like Rob Lowe and Scott Bakula will be joining a cast that already includes Matt Damon, Michael Douglas, Debbie Reynolds and Dan Aykroyd.
