Telenovela Sneak Peek NBC

NBC Sets Telenovela and Superstore Premiere Dates — See Posters

Eva Longoria and America Ferrera’s long-awaited TV returns have a date: Monday, Jan. 4.

That’s when NBC will officially premiere the actresses’ latest series: Superstore (starring Ferrera) at 8/7c, and  Telenovela (starring Longoria) at 8:30.

In advance of the new year, the Peacock net will offer sneak peeks of the new comedies. Two episodes of Superstore will air on Monday, Nov. 30, at 10 following The Voice. A week later, Telenovela will follow The Voice in the same slot.

Telenovela stars Longoria as Ana Sofia, the star of a popular Spanish-language soap opera… who doesn’t speak any Spanish. Amaury Nolasco (Prison Break) plays the villain on the show-within-a-show; other cast members include Jencarlos Canela (Más Sabe el Diablo) as superstar heartthrob Xavier and Diana Maria Riva (The Bridge) as Ana Maria’s best friend Mia.

Superstore is set in a big-box store and centers on Ferrera’s Amy, a longtime employee who keeps the place running. Ben Feldman (A to Z) plays Jonah, a new hire described as a “naive dreamer.” The cast also includes Colton Dunn (Key and Peele), Nico Santos (Mulaney) and Lauren Ash (Super Fun Night) co-star.

    Cant wait for both to air…. its gonna be amazeballs.

  2. Phil says:

    Nice! Excited for both!
    That’s actually a great way to hype both series, raising awareness before just putting them on the air and crossing fingers. Too bad they dropped two episodes of both already!

  3. Mr. Tran K says:

    Thought Hot & Bothered may have been a good title but I’m not interested in the Eva Longoria fronted series. Although I am excited about America Ferrara’s new sitcom Superstore.

  4. kpflat says:

    Those are probably going to be the two best shows in history! Ratings will surpass any other show that has ever been aired! Longoria has shunned films for years because she didn’t want to just keep winning Oscars every year….she is so talented!! Hopefully they will only run these shows on NBC and dump the rest of their programming because these look INCREDIBLE!!¿Comprende sarcasmo? More junk on television.

    Who’s the girl in the yellow dress?She’s Calliente :D

  6. Erika says:

    Both of these shows ratings will bomb hard,because of — well,NBC.

  7. Luis says:

    Happy to see them both back on TV, even if neither of these concepts make my heart beat faster

  8. Ellinas1978 says:

    So they are cutting Blindspot short for those two shows? This has to be a joke.

    • Brian says:

      Blindspot’s 10th episode airs the week before on November 23, That’s probably the fall finale (most shows break at either episode 10 or 11) then it will return with new episodes on January 4 in its regular timeslot while these 2 shows air at 8-9.

    • johnhelvete says:

      Blindspot got the back 9 order and will have 22 episodes this season.

  9. Ellinas1978 says:

    I think “long-awaited” is used pretty liberally.

  10. Jared says:

    I hate that America and Eva’s “comeback” series are on NBC. They will inevitably be low rated and cancelled before anybody gets a chance to check them out. Also cutting the episode orders is never a good thing and shows the lack of support by the network.

  11. Dani says:

    Lol! Only because of Jane the Virgin, I kinda want to watch Telenovela.

  12. jjk says:

    Looking forward to both but Superstore sounds a bit like Chuck or Reaper – both of which I enjoyed a lot!

  13. They setting one latino show against another Latio show “Jane the virgin” and they both are Tellenovel’a….smart…….

  14. pati says:

    both sound horrible and will fail miserably.

  15. Weezy says:

    Does Superstore remind anyone else of that show that was on TBS for a little while? 15 Items or Less I think it was called….I think I was the 1 person that thought that show was hilarious. Superstore seems like the network version. You know better looking people, 20x the budget, and 25% as good…

  16. robandco says:

    I am very sad because NBC’s comedy days are behind them and those two will very probably tank super hard. I am pretty sure to like them both though.

  17. jj says:

    wasn’t telenovela previously titled ‘hot & bothered’? Regardless i’m VERY happy with the name change

  18. Ruthie says:

    Telenovela really bad. Eva longoria is enjoyable actress but this new show is a bomb and not in a good way.

  19. Snerdguy says:

    I liked Telenovela. It was crazy and had a good mix of personalities that contrast well. I think it can last if it gets the right time slot.

  20. Snerdguy says:

    I may be is disagreement with some people, but I found Superstore to be a boring as cheap white bread. The characters seem to be all stereotypes of low wage workers in a Walmart. It seems like its trying to an Office Space type of comedy with two young, pretty people surrounded by a bunch of oddballs. But, the oddballs in Office Space had various eccentricities to explore. The young man is supposed to be a somewhat awkward male. But, he needs to be more self-deprecating and a little more intelligent. The female seems about right and just needs a better male to play off of. The show reminds me of a Walmart store with regular Walmart employees. I don’t think that is entertaining.
