Considering the ease with which Will & Grace revived its brand for a short election-themed “episode,” it wasn’t any surprise that NBC would look into an official revival. Word has been vague since then, though star Leslie Jordan says the new series is “absolutely” happening, and has already picked out a shoot date.

For all the heads and attention NBC managed to garner this year with buzzy programming like 'The Sound of Music' live and upcoming 'Rosemary's Baby' remake, it's no secret that its Thursday comedy lineup has tanked to the point that 'Community' and 'Parks and Recreation' are considered the prize-winners. To that end, the Peacock has officially pulled production on Sean Hayes sitcom 'Sean Saves the World,' despite additional episodes ordered.

As controversial as NBC's 'Smash' may have been, many were sad to see the series close out its two year run in recent weeks, even as ousted creator Theresa Beck continued to blast the series. Thankfully, all is not lost as breakout star Megan Hilty will be right back on NBC this fall joining 'Smash' guest star Sean Hayes in new sitcom 'Sean Saves the World.'

Well, that didn't take very long.  Just about ever since we knew that Debra Messing was making a regular return to TV, centered on theatre with NBC's 'Smash,' no less, we knew it to be a matter of time before the stars of Messing's former hit 'Will & Grace' put in an appearance.  However, Will won't be piping up just yet, rather Jack, as Sean Hayes has signed for a multi-episode arc!  Who will he play, though, and will he burst into song?
