    Marry Me:

    Six years ago, Annie and Jake bonded over their mutual love of nachos, and they've been inseparable ever since. Now, after returning from a romantic two-week island vacation, Jake's all set to pop the question. But before he can ask, Annie lets loose on Jake for his inability to commit. She was expecting him to "put a ring on it" in paradise, dammit! Needless to say, Jake's perfect proposal is ruined.

    Not wanting to spend the next 60 years talking about that mess of a proposal, Jake and Annie decide to hold off on the engagement until they can do it right. But if history tells us anything, it's when we really want things to go right that they all tend to go wrong. The only thing we know for sure is these two are destined to be together whether they can get it together or not.

    From David Caspe, the creator of "Happy Endings," and Seth Gordon, the director of "The Goldbergs," "Identity Thief" and "Horrible Bosses," comes a fresh new romantic comedy about the funny and often bumpy road between "I will" and "I do."

    Bad Judge:

    No excuses, no apologies, no compromises. Wild child Rebecca Wright (Kate Walsh, "Grey's Anatomy," "Private Practice") knows how to have a good time, but she also happens to be one of LA's toughest and most respected criminal court judges. She has a reputation for unorthodox behavior in the courtroom, including creative sentencing and saying exactly what's on her mind.

    Her private life, on the other hand, is anything but innocent. She parties too much and rocks out on the drums in a band with her best friend, Jenny. While there's no shortage of male admirers who would love to spend time with her, she's not ready to settle down... except when an eight-year-old boy - whose parents were put in jail by Rebecca - needs her help. He may in fact be the one thing that starts to tame this "bad" judge.

    From Executive Producers Will Ferrell and Adam McKay ("Anchorman," "Step Brothers," "Talladega Nights") comes a sexy new comedy about a judge who always plays by her own rulings.

    A to Z:

    This is the A-to-Z story of Andrew (Ben Feldman, "Mad Men") and Zelda (Cristin Milioti, "How I Met Your Mother") - a pair that almost wasn't - and all that happened from the day they met.

    Andrew has always been a secret romantic... not above crooning to Celine Dion while driving to work, with dreams of finding "the one." He imagines her to be just like that shimmering beauty he spotted that night in that silver dress at that concert two years ago.

    Zelda, having grown up with a hippie mom who believed the universe would provide for everything, rebelled into a no-nonsense practical lawyer who prefers the control of online dating.

    But when a computer glitch sends her a total mismatch, she's asked to come in for an interview at the Internet dating service where Andrew works, and this is where it all begins. Andrew and Zelda meet for the first time and despite their differences, sparks fly. She thinks it's chance. He thinks it's fate. After all, he's convinced she's the shimmering girl in the silver dress.

    Is it true love forever or just a detour in destiny? Follow along the ins and outs of Andrew and Zelda. From Executive Producer Rashida Jones comes a fresh new comedy about dating in the modern world.

    Mission Control:
    Houston, we have a problem! Dr. Mary Kendricks (Krysten Ritter, "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23") is a tough but brilliant aerospace engineer, leading a team of NASA scientists at the cutting edge of space exploration. The only problem is, this is the 1960s and she's a woman. Navigating the ridiculous boys' club of astronauts and engineering nerds is no easy task, but she's up to the challenge... until her boss brings on Tom (Tommy Dewey, "The Mindy Project") - a former hotshot test pilot and overall man's man - to co-manage her team. It doesn't help that he initially mistakes her for a secretary. Between him, her astronaut boyfriend Cash and her offbeat all-guy team, Mary certainly has her hands full... but at the end of the day, they all want the same thing: to get a man on the moon. It might just take a woman to get him there.

    From Executive Producers Will Ferrell and Adam McKay ("Anchorman," "Step Brothers," "Talladega Nights") comes a workplace comedy, in the tone of "Anchorman," about the golden age of American ingenuity and space travel... if they can just get their ship together.

    One Big Happy:
    Best friends Lizzy (gay and a bit type-A) and Luke (straight and more laid back) are like family. When they were kids and both of their parents were getting divorces, they stuck together, and they've been there for each other ever since. Now, all grown up and still single, they've decided to start a family of their own. No, not like that (there are some lines even they won't cross) - we're talking the non-romantic, go-to-the-doctor's-office type of baby-making.

    Then one night, after yet another failed attempt at conception, the two head out to a bar to let off some steam. That's where Luke meets Prudence, a free-spirited British girl who's slated to go back to England in a matter of days. Lizzy isn't a huge fan - it might have something to do with Prudence waltzing around their apartment naked - but Luke really hits it off with her... and next thing he knows, they're spending every last minute of her limited time together. But just as Lizzy discovers that she's actually pregnant, Luke announces that he and Prudence got married. Ta-da! A different kind of family is born.

    From Writer Liz Feldman ("2 Broke Girls") and Executive Producer Ellen DeGeneres comes a new comedy about a family no one was expecting.

    Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt:
    After 15 years of living in a cult, the unbreakable and wide-eyed Kimmy (Ellie Kemper, "The Office") is rescued along with three other women, causing a national sensation that culminates with an appearance on the "Today" show. Before getting back on the bus to Indiana, however, Kimmy decides it's time to reclaim her life. Armed with just a backpack, light-up sneakers, a couple way-past-due library books and a big wad of rescue-fund cash, she's ready to take on New York City. It's easily the best time of Kimmy's life and she makes a spontaneous decision to rent a room from Titus, a wannabe Broadway actor who makes a living as a robot in Times Square. Motivated to start moving forward, Kimmy gets a job as a nanny for an Upper East Side family and it quickly becomes clear to her that money and status aren't synonymous with happiness (or even sanity). Determined to have a romance and take advantage of everything life has to offer, Kimmy is using her optimistic spirit to finally start having all kinds of adventures in a world she never knew existed.

    From Writers and Executive Producers Tina Fey and Robert Carlock ("30 Rock") comes a new comedy about a modern day Mary Tyler Moore, ready to make this city her own!

    State of Affairs:

    Each day the President is faced with dozens of life and death decisions, and to prioritize the biggest international crises facing the country, one top CIA analyst - Charleston Tucker (Katherine Heigl, "Grey's Anatomy") - assembles the President's Daily Briefing.

    This list of the most vital security issues facing the nation brings with it moral and political judgment calls for Charleston and her trusted group of brilliant analysts at the agency. Aside from the political minefields she has to walk, Charlie has a close personal relationship with the President (Alfre Woodard, "Desperate Housewives") because she was once engaged to her son before a tragic terrorist attack took his life. Charlie survived that attack and is now determined to bring the perpetrators to justice.

    Navigating a complex personal life and a pressure-cooker profession is, of course, a challenge, and Charlie sometimes engages in boundary-pushing behavior to avoid facing her grief. But when the clock strikes 2 a.m., she is all about her job - protecting her nation, serving her president and still trying to get to the bottom of her fiancé's murder that will reveal itself as a shocking mystery.

    From Writer/Director Joe Carnahan ("The Blacklist") comes a high-octane, edge-of-your-seat thriller that could change the way you see politics, the White House and the world at large.


    Based on the wildly popular comic book series "Hellblazer" from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine specializes in giving hell... hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight - or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he's decided to leave his do-gooder life behind. But when demons target Liv, the daughter of one of Constantine's oldest friends, he's reluctantly thrust back into the fray - and he'll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it's revealed that Liv's "second sight," an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences, is a threat to a mysterious new evil that's rising in the shadows. And now it's not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world - and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows... maybe there's hope for him and his soul after all.

    From Executive Producer David S. Goyer ("Batman Begins," "The Dark Knight Rises") and director Neil Marshall ("Game of Thrones," "The Descent") comes a dark new thriller that proves fighting evil is a hell of a job.

    The Mysteries of Laura:

    Debra Messing ("Will & Grace") stars as Laura Diamond, a brilliant NYPD homicide detective who balances her "Columbo" day job with a crazy family life that includes two unruly twin boys and a soon-to-be ex-husband (Josh Lucas) - also a cop - who just can't seem to sign the divorce papers. Between cleaning up after her boys and cleaning up the streets, she'd be the first to admit she has her "hot mess" moments in this hilariously authentic look at what it really means to be a "working mom" today. Somehow she makes it all work with the help of her sexy and understanding partner, and things get even more complicated when her husband ironically becomes her boss at the precinct. For Laura, every day is a high-wire balancing act.

    From Executive Producer/Writer Jeff Rake ("Boston Legal," "The Practice"), Executive Producer Greg Berlanti ("Green Lantern," "Brothers & Sisters") and Executive Producer/Director McG ("Terminator Salvation," "Charlie's Angels") comes an action-packed, but lighthearted cop show with a twist, based on the popular Spanish series about one woman's quest to have it all.

    Emerald City:
    Desperate for clues that will lead to the identity of her biological mother, a young woman breaks into a sinister underground facility somewhere in the Midwest. Unable to complete her mission and surrounded by security, our feisty heroine steals a K9 police dog and drives away into the night... and headlong into the path of a raging tornado. In the blink of an eye, she is transported to another world, one far removed from our own - a mystical land of competing kingdoms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy. This is the fabled Land of Oz in a way you've never seen before, where wicked witches don't stay dead for long and 20-year-old Dorothy Gale becomes a headstrong warrior who holds the fate of kingdoms in her hands. You're not in Kansas anymore, and this is not your grandmother's Oz.

    From the executive producer of "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" comes "Emerald City," a dark and epic reimagining of the worlds created by L. Frank Baum, based on his 14-book "Oz" series.

    Alex O'Connor, a young idealistic CIA analyst specializing in Russian affairs, learns a shocking secret and his close-knit, affluent family is about to be split apart when it's revealed that his parents, Mark (Scott Cohen) and Katya (Hope Davis), are covert Russian spies deactivated decades ago. But today the Kremlin has re-enlisted them into service as they plan a terrorist operation inside the U.S. border that will bring America to its knees.

    Years ago, Russian-born Katya was tasked by the KGB to recruit American businessman Mark O'Connor as a spy and the two fell in love. A deal was struck: as long as Katya remained an asset for Russia, and it was agreed that her services could be called on in the future, she would be allowed to marry Mark and move to America. After years in America building a happy life and without word from Moscow, they thought they had escaped. Now it seems that the new Mother Russia has one more mission - turning Alex into a spy. For these anguished parents, the choice is clear: betray their country... or risk their family.

    Based on an Israeli format and from the writer/director of "The Adjustment Bureau" comes a pulse-pounding thriller that makes the family home look more like enemy territory.

    It's 1967 and the era of free love, drug experimentation and Vietnam is in full effect. When the teenage daughter of a respected lawyer goes missing, LA Police Sergeant Sam Hodiak (David Duchovny, "Californication," "The X-Files") starts asking around. He soon discovers that the hippie kids he's questioning don't take kindly to cops, especially one with hair as short as his. Needing the help of someone they trust, he partners with rebellious undercover cop Brian Shafe, a man who's more comfortable rolling a joint than patrolling a beat. It's not long before they stumble upon a small-time cult leader seeking out vulnerable women to join his cause. From there, they follow this man's trail down a rabbit hole of drugs, sex, murder and cultural revolution. Little could they know, however, the guy they're hunting will eventually become the killer we now recognize as Charles Manson. He was a lost soul who desperately wanted to get into the music scene of the '60s until something snapped. This is the show that will explore the cat-and-mouse game between him and the police, which will go on for several seasons ultimately ending with the infamous Tate-LaBianca murders.

    In this "Traffic"-like action drama, an international conspiracy explodes when three strangers' lives unexpectedly collide - a female soldier, a corporate lawyer and a political activist.

    After a team of American soldiers battle jihadists in North Africa, they're shocked to find that one of the men they killed is Al Qaeda's top man. Sergeant Odelle Ballard - a soldier, mother, wife and the unit's only female member - discovers computer files that suggest a major U.S. corporation is funding the jihadists. But before she can tell anyone, her team is attacked and left for dead. News is reported that the unit was wiped out, but the truth is that Odelle survived and is the only witness to her unit's assassination by U.S. Special Forces.

    In New York, former U.S. Attorney Peter Decker is working on a merger deal for the same company that was funneling money to the jihadists. And meanwhile, Harrison Walters, a political activist and trust fund kid, meets a hacker who claims to have unearthed a massive military-industrial conspiracy. And he's right: he's stumbled onto the cover-up that began with Odelle and will soon be out in the open... and everyone's lives will be in danger. The only way they'll ever save their country, their families and themselves is by joining forces and exposing the people behind it.

    From director Peter Horton ("Grey's Anatomy") comes a complex journey through global politics, military secrets and three strangers who only have one thing in common... the truth.

    LOL @ Constantine. It reminds me of a CW show for teenage girls.

    The only thing they have going for them is Football and The Blacklist. Everything else I read sounded like trash for women sitting at home alone during the week after their 9-5.

    I don't think television has deviated from Cop/Lawyer/Doctor shows in 40 years.

    The only comedy that I find remotely appealing on that list is Mission Control, and that's primarily because it reunites Phil and Lem from Better Off Ted. Most of the rest make it look like NBC just went through a particularly bad breakup, just hit its period, and really needs something to watch to stop the crying jags.

    As far as dramas go, I'll give Constantine a chance. I might also check out Emerald City just because I want to see if they can beat ABC at shitty CGI.
