NBC Announces Midseason Premiere Dates, About a Boy and Believe Nab Voice Lead-In
NBC is singing About a Boy‘s tune: The network has scheduled the Minnie Driver-starring comedy in the plum, post-Voice 9 pm slot on Tuesdays.
Many of the offerings on the Peacock Net’s midseason schedule, which was released Friday, will have their official premieres during the network’s coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics and then settle into their time slots in the following weeks. This is true of Jason Katim’s Boy, which formally bows at 10:30/9:30c on Friday, Feb. 21 and debuts on its regular time and day on Tuesday, Feb. 25 at 9 pm.
Also getting their starts this winter are the comedy Growing Up Fisher, starring Jenna Elfman (Dharma & Greg) and J.K. Simmons (The Closer); the drama Believe, from Alfonso Cuaron (Children of Men), J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk (Fringe) — which also gets a post-Voice Monday boost; and the international thriller Crisis, starring Dermot Mulroney (New Girl) and Gillian Anderson (The X-Files).
