NBC Announces Premiere Date for Mr. Robinson

March, 30 2015 0 Comments Posted by admin

Last week NBC announced that future Carolines headliner Craig Robinson’s new sitcom Mr. Robinson will premiere Wednesday, August 5, at 9 pm. NBC also announced that Los Angeles based stand up Jerrod Carmichael’s new show will follow Mr. Robinson in the 9:30 time slot.

Below is Mr. Robinson’s description via NBC.

As lead singer and keyboardist of the funk band Nasty Delicious, Craig (Craig Robinson, “The Office”) knows a thing or two about working the crowd, but his day job is where he really makes the grade.

Every struggling artist knows the drill: You’ve got to pay the bills while you wait for that big break. So when Craig finds himself short on cash, he takes a job as a substitute high school music teacher. It’s an easy gig, right?

The school principal (Peri Gilpin, “Frasier”) believes that rules were made to be strictly upheld. She’s none too fond of Craig’s unorthodox teaching style, or his crush on the pretty English teacher (recurring guest star Meagan Good, “Think Like a Man”). It’s a constant struggle for Craig, having one foot in the music world with his band, Nasty Delicious, and one foot in the teaching world. But if Craig wants to get the girl of his dreams and teach these kids the joys of music, he’ll have to buckle down, shape up and get the funk out.

“Mr. Robinson” is inspired by Robinson’s real-life experiences as a music teacher.

Writers Mark Cullen & Robb Cullen (“Back in the Game,” “Lucky”) serve as executive producers with Howard Klein (“Parks and Recreation”), Mark Schulman (“Chelsea Lately”) and Andy Ackerman (“Seinfeld”). “Mr. Robinson” is a production of Universal Television and 3 Arts Entertainment.

NBC’s Undateable To Air Live Episode

March, 17 2015 0 Comments Posted by admin


It was announced earlier today by Entertainment Weekly that NBC’s hit-comedy Undateable, which second season premieres tonight at 9 p.m. EST, will air its first live episode on May 5.  The show will record two live broadcasts of the episode for East Coast and West Coast audiences.

As Entertainment Weekly points out, NBC is no stranger to the live sitcom format. Tina Fey’s hit show 30 Rock aired two live episodes during it’s seven season run and last year it was announced that the network was developing a live sitcom.

If you would like to see the stars of Undateable live in stand-up form, you’re in luck! Chris D’Elia, Ron Funches, and Brent Morin will all headline Carolines in the coming months or you can see them along with cast-mate Rick Glassman on “The Undateable Tour” later this month!
