NBC just announced its lineup for the fall 2011 season, and now it’s time to see the goods. The network picked up six sitcoms, three for the fall, and three for mid-season, all with lots of familiar faces. (Christina Applegate, Maya Rudolph, Will Arnett, Hank Azaria, Laura Prepon, Amanda Peet among them.) Check ‘em out for yourself.

Up All Night
Christina Applegate and Will Arnett play new parents, and Maya Rudolph is Applegate’s boss and best friend in this talent-packed sitcom. (Applegate’s character is named Reagan. Hopefully this means more Reagan-ing jokes)

Created by and starring Whitney Cummings as one half of a “happily unmarried couple.” (There’s a laugh track on this one … )

Free Agents
Based on the British series, and from one of the guys who made Party Down, this sitcom co-stars Hank Azaria and Kathryn Hahn as emotionally damaged co-workers and friends who get into a dysfunctional relationship.

Mid-season shows

Best Friends Forever
A woman moves in with her best friend, and her best friend’s boyfriend (who is played by Happy Endings’ Adam Pally in this clip, so he will have to be recast).

Amanda Peet stars as an alpha female who falls for her contractor.

Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea
Laura Prepon stars in in this show based on Chelsea Handler’s life.
