As part of NBC's rolling development cycle, the following projects have been picked-up to pilot with decisions yet to be made on series greenlights: comedies Non-Evil Twin and St. Denis Medical, and dramas Wolf and the untitled pilot from Jenna Bans and Bill Krebs. With NBC's 52-week scheduling strategy, these pilots if picked up to series could be possibilities fo for later in the 2023-24 season or could roll over to the 2024-25 season.

Decisions are yet to be made on American Auto, Grand Crew and Young Rock.

The 2023 fall schedule will follow another huge summer on NBC, where the network has ranked #1 in total viewers for eight years running. Season 18 of America's Got Talent kicks things off in May, along with the debut of Hot Wheels: Ultimate Challenge, the car makeover competition show based on one of the world's most popular toys.

Onyx Collective continues to expand its slate for Hulu with the series pickup of comedy Deli Boys from 20th Television, starring Asif Ali as Mir, Saagar Shaikh as Raj, Alfie Fuller as Prairie, Brian George as Ahmad, and Poorna Jagannathan as Lucky. Deli Boys will stream exclusively on Hulu in the U.S., Star+ in Latin America, and Disney+ in all other territories. The half-hour, 10-episode series was created by Abdullah Saeed and developed by Jenni Konner and Nora Silver under Jenni Konner Productions.

Nisha Ganatra is executive producer and director on the pilot, with Vali Chandrasekaran as a non-writing executive producer on the pilot.

Bob Newhart: A Legacy of Laughter (CBS, 8:00PM ET/PT)

CBS announced a new Entertainment Tonight special, Bob Newhart: A Legacy of Laughter, to air Monday, July 22 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, and streaming on Paramount+ (live and on-demand for Paramount+ with Showtime subscribers, or on-demand for Paramount+ Essential subscribers the day after the special airs)*.

Hosted by Entertainment Tonight’s Nischelle Turner, this one-hour tribute honors the late comedian with a look back at his 70-year career, featuring never-before-seen interviews, and his final interview from his home in Los Angeles. The special takes an in-depth look at his journey from accountant to comedian to Hollywood icon, with rare behind-the-scenes footage of Bob on the set of his sitcoms and feature films, from the Entertainment Tonight vault. Included are new and archival interviews with some of Bob’s closest friends and co-stars, including Jim Parsons, Will Ferrell, Reese Witherspoon, Jason Bateman and Michael Weatherly. The show takes an intimate look inside Bob’s personal life and his marriage to the love of his life, Ginnie, with newly revealed stories about how he changed American culture through comedy.

Bob starred as Chicago psychologist Robert Hartley on the CBS television series The Bob Newhart Show from 1972 to 1978, and then as Vermont innkeeper Dick Loudon on Newhart from 1982 to 1990, also on the Network. He had two other sitcoms on CBS in the 1990s, Bob and George and Leo. Bob played the recurring role of Professor Proton on the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory from 2013 to 2018, for which he received his first Primetime Emmy Award.
