NBC Orders 'Crisis', 'About A Boy', And 'Believe'

NBC is the second broadcast network to start their 2013-2014 series orders.

Coming off the heels of FOX's announcement on Wednesday, NBC has revealed another five pilots to officially get picked up for a season premiere. The current total is listed at three dramas and four comedies, with mini-series Dracula and comedy The Michael J. Fox Show already previously reported.

Continuing as the next two drama pick-ups are the high concept Crisis and the J.J. Abrams-helmed Believe. Crisis seems to be a political thriller that delves into an overarching conspiracy while Believe follows the relationship of a young gifted girl and the man tasked to protect her from evil. Between the two Crisis may be a little TOO complex for people to latch onto while Believe is definitely a series I want to check out. Plus, Kyle MacLachlan, Jamie Chung and Sienna Guillory are set to star, which is always a casting incentive.

The NBC Comedies are bringing back a lot of returning faces. Including Michael J. Fox in his sitcom, Sean Hayes (Will & Grace) will star in Sean Saves The World, a multi-cam sitcom about a man who tries to find the balance of parenting and appeasing a new boss. Television adaptation About A Boy and sitcom Family Guide join NBC's new comedy line-up as well.

More news (and long awaited cancellations/renewals) could be coming in as the day goes on.
