NBC schedules ‘Donnellys’

Haggis-Moresco show gets 'Studio' slot

NBC is giving midseason drama “The Black Donnellys” a plum timeslot, scheduling the skein to air Monday nights after frosh hit “Heroes.”

“Donnellys,” a crime drama from the “Crash” duo of Paul Haggis and Bobby Moresco, will premiere at 10 p.m. March 5. It replaces “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,” which NBC said will return “later this season on a date to be determined.”

Peacock originally planned to air “Donnellys” on Thursday nights at 10 beginning in January, resting “ER” for several months. Net changed its mind after “ER” started off the season with strong numbers.

Meanwhile, NBC has also found a home for “Andy Barker, P.I.,” the new Andy Richter laffer from exec producers Conan O’Brien and Jonathan Groff. “Barker” will get a five-week run at 9:30 Thursdays beginning March 15.

Laffer “30 Rock,” which airs in that slot, will return April 19.
