NEW YORK (AP) — NBC, which rebounded this season from a stubborn ratings slump, will try to build on its gains with a dozen new series that include dramas starring Debra Messing and Katherine Heigl and a pair of comedies produced by Will Ferrell.
In the 2014-15 schedule announced Sunday before its New York presentation to advertisers, NBC also said it will move its freshman series “The Blacklist” to Thursday starting in February — surrendering for now its effort to bring a “must-see TV” comedy block back to the night that once housed “Friends” and other hits.
Messing will star as a homicide detective and working mom in “The Mysteries of Laura” on Wednesdays this fall, while former “Grey’s Anatomy” star Heigl will return to the small screen as a CIA agent in “State of Affairs” on Mondays starting in November.
