The Cape - This mid-season replacement looks like it might be super-cheesy or a guilty pleasure. A policeman is accused of murders he did not commit and goes into hiding as his son's favorite superhero. The fan-favorite Summer Glau also stars.
Chase - Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who has given us a string of action-packed hits over the years, tries it again with this drama about U.S. marshals hunting fugitives.
The Event - Jason Ritter stars in a familiar conspiracy theory plot in which he uncovers a massive cover-up while investigating the disappearance of his girlfriend. We shall see if they can breathe new life into a stale premise.
Friends with Benefits - Oh, how NBC wishes it had its old hit comedies back again during their peak! Here's a mid-season replacement comedy that follows the lives of a group of twenty-something-year-olds.
Harry's Law - David E. Kelley produces another legal drama, this time starring Kathy Bates in this mid-season stand-by.
Law and Order: Los Angeles - The New York set original has been jettisoned to make way for this La-La Land spin-off.
Love Bites - Here's an interesting little premise for a comedy - an anthology series of interconnected vignettes about love, sex, and romance with weekly guest stars. The pilot episode features appearances by Jennifer Love Hewitt and Greg Grunberg.
Outlaw - Jimmy Smits is back on TV in this new drama where he plays a Supreme Court justice who quits in order to return to private practice. Seems farfetched, but I'll give it a shot.
Outsourced - This sitcom examines the misadventures that ensue when a Midwest American company is relocated to India.
The Paul Reiser Show - In this mid-season replacement comedy, based on Paul Reiser's semi-autobiographical story, an actor tries to deal with life after his hit television show is off the air.
Perfect Couples - Yet another mid-season candidate follows the antics of three different couples.
School Pride - In this reality show, communities give their local schools a make-over.
Undercovers - Producer J.J. Abrams brings us the adventures of a husband and wife who happen to be spies.
Will any of these new shows save the once-proud network?
