We’re just over a month away from kicking off the new television season and so the networks are really starting to push their new series into the public eye. NBC is up to bat today with a small batch of new posters promoting a few of their new series hitting in September. After the jump you can check out some slick new posters for the Mad Men-esque series The Playboy Club, the American remake of the British series Prime Suspect, the fairytale crime drama Grimm, and comedies like Up All Night, Free Agents and Whitney. Honestly, it seems like NBC has the most promising line-up of new shows, but Fox could give them a run for their money. For more details on these and the rest of NBC’s new series, check out our posts of clips from the new comedies right here, and dramas over here, not to mention complete trailers of all the series right here.

Returning series include Parenthood, Chuck, Harry’s Law, The Office, Parks & Recreation and Community while new series include but are not limited to The Playboy Club starring Amber Heard, the fairytale driven Grimm, the new comedy series Whitney starring the hilarious stand-up comedienne Whitney Cummings and the remake of Prime Suspect with Maria Bello. Find out when your old favorites and new series hit the air with the full schedule after the jump, but if you want to check out the new series, check clips from dramas here and comedies here straight from the network’s upfronts presentation.
NBC has officially announced their schedule for 2011-2012. The network ordered six new dramas (The Playboy Club, Prime Suspect, Grimm, The Firm, Smash, Awake) and six new sitcoms (Up All Night, Free Agents, Whitney, Best Friends Forever, Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me Chelsea, Bent).
The network is programming Fridays fairly aggressively. Chuck will air its fifth and final 13-episode season on Fridays, paired with the new fairy tale drama Grimm and Friday staple Dateline NBC. NBC will hold 30 Rock for midseason to accommodate star/creator Tina Fey’s pregnancy. The Thursday night sitcom block will be cut back to two hours with Community, Parks and Recreation, The Office, and Whitney leading into the Maria Bello-led Prime Suspect remake.
