Upfronts is happening right now, which means my Twitter stream is filled with content from every TV writer I follow updating us on what the networks’ fall schedules will look like. Normally I follow this stuff like a hawk, but I’ve been pretty busy lately.
But not so busy that I didn’t have two and a half minutes for a Happy Endings alum. You guys! Casey Wilson (Penny on Happy Endings) and Ken Marino (Vinnie Van Lowe on Veronica Mars) will star in Marry Me. Trailer is below.
This show comes from the creator of my beloved Happy Endings, so I have high hopes. Plus I spotted at least one alum from The Office, Stanley.
I just watched the trailer for another new NBC show, A to Z. Here it is:
It looks a little cheesy, but it’s hard to tell what a comedy will be like from a trailer, or even a pilot. I like the actors – Ben Feldman is great on Mad Men and has done other stuff I like, and Cristin Milioti was the lone bright spot in the final, dreadful season of How I Met Your Mother. But that’s the problem – this trailer is VERY HIMYM-esque, what with the dating and the fate and whatnot. I don’t think I can handle that.
That’s it for me, for now anyway. Have you guys seen any trailers for new shows that you think I should check out?
Side note: I am VERY pleased that Parenthood and Parks and Recreation will be back for final seasons.
