NBC Picks Up Three More Series


Just a few days after making J.J. Abrams's married-spy drama Undercovers the first scripted show confirmed for the 2010–11 season, NBC has picked up three more series: the promising-sounding comedy Outsourced, about an American running a call-center in India, the hour-long Love Bites, not about vampires, but the love lives of single ladies played by Ugly Betty's Becki Newton and My Boys'Jordana Spiro, and The Event, starring Jason Ritter as an everyman uncovering a huge conspiracy we will undoubtedly one day be referring to as the show’s "mythology."
