NBC is readying its presentation at the network upfronts, and has released its full fall 2019 TV schedule. The Peacock Network has recently finished the unpleasant work of canceling various programs, among them the freshman sitcom I Feel Bad, as well as Midnight, Texas, Reverie, and the underrated comedy Trial & Error. But the network has renewed plenty other shows, like Manifest, The Blacklist, Superstore, and The Good Place.
That leaves NBC with just a few slots to fill in when the new TV season begins this fall. As such, in addition to long-running hits Law & Order: SVU and Dick Wolf’s Chigaco series, there will be a few new faces. Chief among them is the new legal drama Bluff City Law, starring Jimmy Smits, and two new comedies, Sunnyside, with Kal Penn, and Perfect Harmony, featuring Bradley Whtiford (Get Out) and Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect).
As NBC’s upfront announcement will begin next week, the network has been kind enough to release some trailers for its new freshman series, which you can check out below, along with the full fall 2019 schedule breakdown. Of the new trailers, both Sunnyside and Perfect Harmony look like solid comedies that should pair well with NBC's returning favorites. As far as Bluff City Law goes, that series sees Jimmy Smits conjuring up memories of LA Law.

With blocks built around the network’s strong Thursday-night comedy lineup, both Perfect Harmony and Sunnyside will get to fit in with some of NBC's biggest comedy hits. Meanwhile, Bluff City Law is getting the prime lead-in audience from The Voice, which means of the three new additions to NBC’s fall schedule it stands the best chance of garnering some impressive ratings. Though the trailers only offer a small glimpse of what can be expected when the new series premiere, at least viewers have a good idea of what’s on the horizon as the networks continue to compete against the likes of HBO, Amazon, and Netflix.
