Peacock net wants six more ‘Sisters’

Exec see potential in comedy despite tough Tuesday slot

NBC has ordered six more episodes of soph sitcom “Three Sisters.”

Skein, which bowed in January, was given a 13-episode order this fall. New commitment brings to 19 the total number of segs of the NBC Studios-produced comedy planned for this season. Peacock made 16 segs of “Three Sisters” last season.

Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline (“Ellen,” “Roseanne”) created and exec produce “Three Sisters.” Series debuted strongly last winter and performed reasonably well when it aired Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. following “Frasier.”

Since moving to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays this fall, “Three Sisters” has had a more difficult time drawing auds, hurt in part by its poor “Emeril” lead-in. Peacock execs, however, saw enough potential to order additional segs.

Still awaiting pickups from NBC: “Inside Schwartz” and “UC: Undercover.”
