NBC Sets Summer Dates for Anne Heche Comedy, Rachel Griffith's Camp and Other Series

NBC Summer Calendar Save Me CampAn Anne Heche comedy will at long last come off the shelf to launch NBC’s summer slate, the network announced on Monday.

Save Me, starring Heche (Men in Trees) as a Midwestern mom and wife who has a spiritual awakening after a near-death experience, will air Thursdays at 8/7c, starting May 23 — more than a year after being unveiled at NBC’s 2012 Upfront presentation.

    NBC, The Biggest Loser network

    Finally! I saw previews of Save Me about a year ago, I’m glad it’s finally here

  3. Molly says:

    Celestia!

  4. Teag says:

    Couldn’t have posted this tomorrow?

  5. Bender says:

    Where’s Dracula?

  6. jdbasset says:

    ugh. No thanks on the Anne Heche/Celestia show. Better things to do and watch.

  7. Mick says:

    I am excited for Camp purely because half the cast of Dance Academy is in it.

    • Carlee says:

      Oh, cool! I read a blurb about the show but kind of wrote it off. Then I saw a promo and it looked interesting (reminded me of ABC Family’s Huge a bit). But now that I know Abigail, Ethan and Sammy will be on it, I’ll check it out :)

    • Elisa says:

      I totally agree! I wouldn’t have even known about ‘Camp’ if it wasn’t for ‘Dance Academy’. :)

    Because Save Me is airing in the summer there is not a lot of pressure to succeed. The goal is to attract an audience. If she can get a stable audience, it may remain a mainstay summer show.

    Welcome to the grave of summer comedies NBC disposes of every summer

    100 Questions- still miss this one
    Love Bites
    Friends With Benifeits
    And now…Save Me

  10. Why NBC? Why? says:

    Save Me – apparently NBC took that advice and ‘saved’ this series for over a year. Saving the best for last? Perhaps? I read that there were production ‘challenges’ on the set, a new show-runner installed, delays in filming episodes, etc. Okay, perhaps not.

  11. Martoukian says:

    I’m interested in Camp, though “Meatballs-esque” and “dramedy” sound incongruous to me. Summer is TV’s neglected season, since most shows are generally timed to coincide with the time of year in which they’re shown–we see Christmas episodes, graduation episodes, Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving, back to school, etc., but not too many summer vacations or 4th of July parties.

  12. Spencer says:

    I will check out anything Rachel Griffiths does. She is freakishly talented.

  13. Alienate says:

    So Love in the Wild is dead?

  14. Marisa_once says:

    Who else thinks NBC should have aired Save Me instead of Do no Harm? This network doesn’t seem to know how to do things right.
