NBC has set premiere dates for its hotly-anticipated midseason shows, including the Blacklist spin-off The Blacklist: Redemption, the DC Comics comedy Powerless, and Chicago Justice, the newest entry in its Chicago franchise. Also getting premiere dates are Jennifer Lopez's Shades of Blue and more of the surprisingly successful kid talent show Little Big Shots.
The Blacklist: Redemption will be taking over its parent's 10 p.m. Thursday timeslot for eight weeks starting Feb. 23, with The Blacklist returning April 20. The spin-off stars Ryan Eggold as he takes the Tom Keen character to his own series. Famke Janssen co-stars as the head of a top-secret mercenary organization who is also Keen's mother.
Powerless stars Vanessa Hudgens as a woman without superpowers in a world where superheroes exist — and are annoying. Danny Pudi and Alan Tudyk also star as coworkers of Hudgens' character, where they work at an insurance company.
Trial & Error stars Nicholas D'Agosto as a hotshot New York City lawyer who moves to small Southern town to defend a poetry professor (John Lithgow) accused of murdering his wife. Great News comes from 30 Rock writer Tracey Wigfield and stars Andrea Martin as a woman who gets an internship at the TV station where her daughter is a powerful producer.
