NBC has announced original digital series to keep fans intrigued and focused on four of its primetime series – Chicago Fire, Grimm, Parenthood and Parenthood – while the shows are on their Olympics hiatus. My personal favorite, based on tags from the press release is the Grimm digital series which follows Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) as they and their friends have a Valentine’s Day spa day that goes supernaturally wrong.
Chicago Fire: I Am a Firefighter premieres on Feb. 11th; Parenthood’s Friday Night at the Luncheonette debuts Feb. 13th; Grimm’s Love in the Air debuts on, fittingly, Feb. 14th, and Parks and Recreation’s The Hapley Group debuts Feb. 20th.

Whenever Louis CK turns up as a guest star in any series, it immediately becomes more fun. Now he’s back on this week’s episode of Parks and Recreation [NBC, Thursdays, 8:30/7:30C] as Leslie’s ex-boyfriend, Dave Sanderson. Let the laughter and wincing begin.
Parks and Recreation [NBC, Thursdays, 9:30/8:30C] is one of those shows that I found remarkably unfunny when it premiered and consistently managed to not amuse me on those rare occasions when I’d check to see if it had a pulse – so I was surprised when a screener of the show’s next episodes arrived and I found myself laughing. Frequently.
NBC has issued pickups for three returning comedy series in 2011-12 that include “The Office,” “Parks and Recreation” and “Community.” The announcement was made today by Bob Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment.
“I am so pleased to renew these three outstanding comedies which are all at the top of their game creatively,” said Greenblatt. “Along with ’30 Rock,’ they represent the best of what the NBC comedy brand stands for in terms of originality, wit, and sophistication. ‘The Office’ continues to fire on all cylinders on the most competitive night of television; ‘Parks & Recreation’ has come into its own this season as the rightful companion to ‘The Office’; and ‘Community’ is one of the freshest comedies on any network and a solid foundation for Thursday night.
“Community” airs Thursdays, 8-8:30 p.m. “The Office” airs Thursdays, 9-9:30 p.m. with “Parks and Recreation” to follow at 9:30-10 p.m. In addition, both “Parks and Recreation” and “Community” were honored last week by the prestigious William S. Paley Festival held in Beverly Hills, California.
