NBC is revving up its scripted programming output with three series orders from Universal Television – comedies “Grand Crew” and “American Auto,” and drama “La Brea” for the 2021-2022 season.
The series pickups come on the heels of Susan Rovner taking on the role of Chairman, Entertainment Content across NBCUniversal’s television portfolio, which includes NBC, the company’s six cable networks and Peacock. Lisa Katz, who was recently named President, Scripted Content as part of Rovner’s team, made the announcement:
“Our driving force has always been to seek out talented storytellers who have a strong point of view,” Katz said. “While these shows are very different thematically , what they have in common is a unique voice, excellent world building, and compelling storytelling. We can’t wait to share them with TV fans everywhere.”
