The 2017 NBC Primetime Special will begin its run on NBC’s various platforms – from network channels to D2 channels, NBCU cable channels, NBC.com, station websites and social media pages – on September 1st.
The special, hosted by the cast of Great News – with an assistant from Tina Fey – will preview NBC’s fall offerings including the return of Will & Grace; the new Dick Wolf true crime series Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, and military series The Brave.
NBC is the first Big Four network to release its 2017-18 schedule and there is a bit of movement as the network’s biggest breakout show, This Is Us, is moving from Tuesdays at 9 to Thursdays at 9 – following Will & Grace and Great News and leading into Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders.
To accommodate the new Thursday schedule, The Blacklist moves from Thursdays at 9 to Wednesdays at 8 with Wednesday comedies Superstore and The Good Place moving to Tuesdays.
Blindspot moves to Fridays (the former Grimm slot).
The Brave – starring Anne Heche and Mike Vogel – nabs the post The Voice Monday night slot.
Chicago Med, Shades of Blue and Timeless and new scripted series Rise, A.P. Bio, Good Girls, Champions and Reverie are all scheduled for midseason.
