Fall TV Scoop: NBC Picks Up Comedy Guys With Kids to Series
NBC has picked up the Jimmy Fallon-produced comedy Guys With Kids for its growing fall slate.
The series stars Anthony Anderson (Law & Order), Jesse Bradford (The West Wing) and Zach Cregger (Friends With Benefits) as three 30-something guys who enjoy the adventures of parenting despite the fact they haven’t grown up themselves. Rounding out the ensemble are Jamie-Lynn Sigler (The Sopranos), Sara Rue (Rules of Engagement) and Tempestt Bledsoe (The Cosby Show).
That brings to nine the number of new shows NBC has already ordered for fall, joining previously greenlit comedies Save Me (starring Anne Heche), Go On (starring Matthew Perry), Animal Practice (starring Justin Kirk), The New Normal, and 1600 Penn, as well as serial thriller Revolution from J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke, Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal and Dick Wolf’s Chicago Fire.
NBC will formally unveil its fall schedule to advertisers next Monday.
