NBC released their summer lineup and it will bring a content-rich schedule that will compliment the already strong returning series.
The summer for NBC is always anchored by competition shows like America’s Got Talent, American Ninja Warrior and Last Comic Standing. NBC hopes they can bring some diversity in with their summer lineup by adding six original scripted summer series. This is the most for any broadcast network in more than 20 years. They will also add new alternative series to the lineup. The new series lineup includes The Night Shift, Undateable, Crossbones, Taxi Brooklyn, Working the Engels, Welcome to Sweden and new alternative Food Fighters.
