CHICAGO – While some television fans (including myself) continue to mourn the absence of “Community” from the NBC lineup, the network has announced that they have picked up not one…not two…but ten new pilots, eight of which are listed as comedies. The list of new shows has some known names attached to them as well, including Jason Ritter and Roseanne Barr.

The peacock’s ten new pilots are as follows: “County;” an hour long drama with Jason Ritter attached about group of doctors and nurses in a struggling hospital in Los Angeles. “Chicago Fire;” a firefighter drama. “Downwardly Mobile;” (get this) “starring Roseanne Barr as the proprietor of a mobile home park and surrogate mother to all of the unique people who live there.” “Go On;” a single-camera comedy about a sportscaster moving on from loss. “Animal Kingdom;” a single-camera comedy about a veterinarian office.

“Friday Night Dinner;” single-camera comedy based on a UK series about a quirky family that has dinner together every Friday night. “Untitled Jimmy Fallon;” comedy produced by Fallon about a couple of dads in their early thirties. “Next Caller Please;” single-camera comedy about a guy and girl DJ team on a satellite radio station. “Untitled Hilary Winston;” comedy about a shy girl who plots her revenge on her ex-fiancé with help from her co-workers. “Daddy’s Girl;” a comedy about a woman who comes home from overseas to find her father is dating the mean girl that went to high school with her.

No word on release dates for any of the pilots or if it spells doom for any shows currently on NBC. staff writer Tim Martens
