NBC has ordered another new sitcom — A to Z — for the 2014-15 season. The peacock network picked up another one on Tuesday called Marry Me.
Here’s what we know so far:
“A TO Z”
This is the A-to-Z story of Andrew (Ben Feldman, “Mad Men”) and Zelda (Cristin Milioti, “How I Met Your Mother”) – a pair that almost wasn’t – and all that happened from the day they met. Andrew has always been a secret romantic … not above crooning to Celine Dion while driving to work, with dreams of finding “the one.” He imagines her to be just like that shimmering beauty he spotted that night in that silver dress at that concert two years ago. Zelda, having grown up with a hippie mom who believed the universe would provide for everything, rebelled into a no-nonsense practical lawyer who prefers the control of online dating. But when a computer glitch sends her a total mismatch, she’s asked to come in for an interview at the Internet dating site where Andrew works, and this is where it all begins. Andrew and Zelda meet for the first time and despite their differences, sparks fly. She thinks it’s chance. He thinks it’s fate. After all, he’s convinced she’s the shimmering girl in the silver dress. Is it true love forever or just a detour in destiny?
The cast also includes Henry Zebrowski, Lenora Crichlow and Christina Kirk.
Writers Ben Queen (“Drive”), Rashida Jones (“Parks and Recreation”) and Will McCormack (“Will & Grace”) serve as executive producers. “A to Z” is a production of Warner Bros. Television and Le Train Train.
No word on how many episodes have been ordered or when the series will start airing. We should know more in the coming week.
What do you think? Does this show sound like a hit or a flop? Will you check it out?
It is a real shame that reality shows that are spoon fed to everyone still have a place on television while an original show with great, buildable characters like A-Z cannot find an audience. Too many great possibilities wasted over the years due to ignorant viewers.
This is my favorite show! I don’t watch a lot of T.V. but for this show, I clear my schedule.
Looking forward to this one. This is the only one I’ve marked as a “MUST WATCH” for the upcoming fall season. Already clearing my Thursday evening schedules !
Ugh, we can only imagine… more “unknowns.” So this is why you cancelled Parenthood?
