Looking at their dramas overall, I'm still not seeing that common thread they need for a strong brand identity (male-skewing, to take advantage of their large sports audience):
- sci fi adventure
Do No Harm
- doctor show, sci-fi-ish
Republic of Pirates
(spring?) - historical adventure
- firefighter drama (probably similar in structure to an episodic cop show)
- mystery soap, very ABC flavored
1313 Mockingbird Lane
(spring?) - fantasy comedy, also more ABC-ish
This is actually very few dramas in the context of NBC's annual need to rebuild their schedule.
NBC also has Hannibal
lined up for next fall.
