NBC’s New Fall Shows: Time-Traveling Criminals, an Ensemble Life Drama, and a Naughty Kristen Bell in Heaven

By

NBC released the official lineup for its fall slate earlier today, and three distinctive shows are expected to make their debut on the Peacock: Timeless, This Is Us, and The Good Place. (Joining, of course, favorites such as The Blacklist and Blindspot.) Below are the program's full-length trailers for your viewing pleasure.

The comedic The Good Place stars Kristen Bell as "an ordinary woman who, through an extraordinary string of events, enters the afterlife where she comes to realize that she hasn’t been a very good person. With the help of her wise newfound afterlife mentor (Ted Danson), she’s determined to shed her old way of living and discover the awesome (or at least the pretty good) person within." Welcome back to NBC, Sam Malone!

Timeless follows a scientist, a soldier, and a history professor who must travel back in time to important historical events after "a mysterious criminal steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past." Color us intrigued.

The dramedy This Is Us stars Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, and Sterling K. Brown and centers around "a unique ensemble whose paths cross and their life stories intertwine in curious ways." If you think it sounds similar to Crazy, Stupid, Love, kudos — it has the same writer and directors.
