NBC Orders ‘Undateable,’ ‘Ironside,’ ‘Chicago PD’; Cancels ‘Go On’

Peacock stocks up on new series in advance of May 13 sked presentation in Gotham

NBC added another comedy and two dramas, including the “Chicago Fire” spinoff, to its new series roster for the 2013-14 season. And it gave the ax to Matthew Perry comedy “Go On.”

Laffer “Undateable” marks the Peacock’s fifth new comedy series. “Ironside(pictured) is a remake of the 1970s series, starring Blair Underwood as the wheelchair-bound gumshoe originally played by Raymond Burr.

Ass expected, Dick Wolf is claiming another hour of NBC’s sked with the pickup of “Chicago PD,” which is set to air next week as a planted spinoff within Wolf’s frosh drama “Chicago Fire.”

Undateable,” from Warner Bros. TV and sitcom vet Bill Lawrence and scribe Adam Sztykiel, revolves around a group of romantically challenged friends.

Peacock unveils its new sked to advertisers in Gotham on Monday.

Here are the descriptions:

UNDATEABLE

When confident slacker Danny Beeman (Chris D’Elia, “Whitney,” ”Glory Daze”) takes Justin (comedian Brent Morin) on as a roommate, Danny unwittingly inherits Justin’s group of romantically challenged friends. Seeing himself as the ultimate player, Danny decides to teach the crew (who he dubs “The Undateables”) everything he knows about “the game of love.” For their first lesson, Danny takes the guys to an event hosted by his sister, Leslie (Bianca Kajlich, “Rules of Engagement”), who is a single mom with dating difficulties of her own. At first, Danny’s advice seems to pay off big-time: The shy guy talks to a girl, the no-filter dude learns it’s never OK to ask a woman when she’s due, and his nebbish roommate, Justin, goes home with a mystery woman. It’s not until the next day that they figure out it was Leslie! Talk about a bunch who just can’t get lucky!  From the executive producers of “Cougar Town” comes a hilarious new comedy about the “do’s,” “don’ts” and “duhs” of dating.

From Emmy-nominated executive producer Bill Lawrence (“Scrubs,” “Cougar Town”), Jeff Ingold and executive producer/writer Adam Sztykiel (“Due Date”) “Undateable” is a production of Warner Bros. Television and Doozer Productions. Scott Ellis (“Guys with Kids”) directs the pilot episode.

IRONSIDE


In the gritty world of the NYPD, no one’s tougher than Det. Robert Ironside (Blair Underwood, “The Event,” “The New Adventures of Old Christine”). He’s a fearless cop who won’t stop until the guilty are brought to justice. He and his trusted, handpicked team of specialists — Virgil (Pablo Schreiber, “The Wire” “Lights Out”), Holly (Spencer Grammer, “Greek,” “As the World Turns”) and Teddy (Neal Bledsoe, “Smash,” “Ugly Betty”), as well as his former partner Gary (Brent Sexton, “The Killing”) and boss Det. Ed Rollins (Kenneth Choi, “Sons of Anarchy”) — will do whatever it takes to solve New York’s most difficult and notorious crimes. As a detective, Ironside’s instincts are second to none, and those around him have to stay on their toes if they want to keep up… because when his spine was shattered by a bullet two years ago, Ironside swore he’d never let a wheelchair slow him down. Nothing gets in his way.

From executive producer-writer Michael Caleo (“Rescue Me,” “The Sopranos”) and executive producers Teri Weinberg (“Ugly Betty”), John Davis, John Fox, Ron West and David Semel (“Heroes”), “Ironside” is produced by Universal Television, Davis Entertainment, Yellow Brick Road Productions.

CHICAGO PD

District 21 of the Chicago Police Department is made up of two distinctly different groups. There are the uniformed cops who patrol the beat and go head to head with the city’s street crimes. And there’s the Intelligence Unit, the team that combats the city’s major offenses – organized crime, drug traffi cking, high profile murders and beyond.

Leading the Intelligence team is Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), a man not against skirting the law in the pursuit of justice. Demanding and tough, only those who can take the heat survive under Voight’s command. Take Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) – despite his troubled history with his boss, Dawson has ambitions of running the unit… so if that means facing off against Voight every day, he’ll persevere. From the street cops with dreams of moving up to the elite crew who are already in, “life on the job” is a daily challenge. The enormous responsibilities that come with the territory take an emotional toll, as we’ll f nd when we follow the personal lives of our characters outside the walls of District 21. From Emmy®-winning producer Dick Wolf and the team behind “Chicago Fire” comes Chicago PD, a gripping, character-driven new police drama about those who put it all on the line to serve and protect.
