So, what’s on tap for next year? News is already being leaked on which shows have been picked up by the networks.

BROOKLYN NINE-NINE
From Dan Goor and Michael Schur, the Emmy Award-winning writers/producers of “Parks and Recreation,” and starring Emmy Award winners Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, BROOKLYN NINE-NINE is comedy about what happens when a detective who doesn’t take anything seriously gets a new “by-the-book” boss who wants him to grow up and respect the badge.

DADS – A comedy from Emmy Award winner Seth MacFarlane, one of creators of “Ted” and FOX’s FAMILY GUY. This one stars  Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi as two successful guys – and childhood best friends – whose lives get turned upside down when their pain-in-the-neck patriarchs (Martin Mull and Academy Award and Emmy Award nominee Peter Riegert) move in.

 

ENLISTED
ENLISTED is an irreverent and heartfelt military-set single-camera family comedy starring Geoff Stults that follows three brothers getting to know each other again on a small Florida Army base and the group of misfits who surround them.

 

US & THEM
Based on the hugely popular and multiple-award-winning BBC 3 series “Gavin and Stacey” and starring EJason Ritter and Alexis Bledel, US & THEM is comedy about a young couple, whose path to happily-ever-after is complicated by the screwed-up circus of people closest to them.
