Things begin to get interesting in January as NBC premieres its mid-season schedule. Included in its four new series are: the highly regarded [and for good reason – the pilot is delightful] Smash [pictured above]; The Firm – sequel series to the Tom Cruise movie adaptation of John Grisham’s novel of the same name; Are You There, Chelsea? – the sitcom based on the memoir by Chelsea Handler, and Fashion Star – a reality series set [surprise!] in the world of fashion.
