Surprise! NBC Accidentally Tweeted Its Fall Schedule!
Another day, another comically large misstep made by the Peacock. Only instead of senselessly shuffling Tonight Show hosts or hiring divorcées to dole out marriage advice, the network created Twitter accounts for their new series, not realizing that Internet users might notice. Click through to see which pilots (probably) made the fall line-up.
Thanks to the clever detective work done by TVaddict, here are the shows for which NBC has already created Twitter accounts:
· The Cape: From Tom Wheeler, this scripted drama centers on a retired cop who becomes a superhero to rebuild his image.
· Kindreds: David E. Kelly's drama about an ex-patent lawyer (Kathy Bates) and her quirky legal team.
· The Rockford Files: A remake of the '70s series starring Dermot Mulroney and Beau Bridges.
· Beach Lane: A comedy starring Nick Thune (who replaced Patton Oswalt) as an irresponsible millionaire who runs a struggling small-town newspaper with the help of a celebrity journalist (Matthew Broderick).
· Chase: Jerry Bruckheimer's drama about a "crucial fugitive apprehension team comprised of U.S. Marshals that tracks down the nation's most notorious criminals."
· The Strip: A multicam comedy from Reno 911 co-creators/stars Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant about a former child star who now runs a Hooters-type restaurant.
NBC will officially announce their fall line-up at their May 17th Upfront presentation.
