After previously announcing premiere dates for Summer dramas Aquarius and Hannibal, NBC has set their rest of their summer schedule – which includes two new comedy series as well as the second season of acquired comedy Welcome To Sweden.
Mr Robinson premieres on Wednesday August 5th at 9pm. The comedy series follows the eponymous character who is a talented musician who must adjust to his new life as a middle school music teacher, where he maneuvers precocious kids, teacher politics, and the temptations of single moms. Mr Robinson is produced by Universal Television and stars Craig Robinson, Peri Gilpin and Meagan Good.
The just picked up Jerrod Carmichael comedy (which is going by The Carmichael Show) follows close behind on Wednesday August 5th at 9:30pm. The multi-camera comedy is described as being “semi-autobiographical” and explores Jerrod Carmichael’s real life relationships with his contrarian father, therapist-in training girlfriend, ever-hustling brother and religious mother. The series is produced by Universal Television and stars Jerrod Carmichael, Loretta Devine (Boston Public), David Alan Grier (Bad Teacher), Amber West (Criminal Minds) and Lil Rey Howery (Lucas Bros Moving Co).
