NBC SPECIALS --(8:00PM-8:30PM)
"Nbc Fall Preview"
Golden Globe winner Steve Carell and the cast of NBC's Emmy Award-nominated "The Office" will appear in character as the Dunder-Mifflin worker bees quit pushing pencils long enough to help showcase the network's new series for Fall 2006-07 in "NBC Primetime Preview" - a 30-minute program that features original comedy from the series' creative team.
The annual Fall program, which offers a sneak peek at NBC's new Fall series and some returning series, will be offered to NBC's 232 television stations (check local listings) as well as on such non-NBC sites as CNBC, USA, SCI FI, Bravo, Universal HD, E!, TV Guide Channel and on selected United Airlines flights. In addition, Comcast, Time Warner and Cox will be offering the show via On Demand platforms.
Cast members, including recent Emmy nominee Carell, Jenna Fischer, John Krasinski, Rainn Wilson and B.J. Novak, will be featured in quick wraparound sketches designed to match the theme of each new series whose highlights are introduced during the program. Series regulars Angela Kinsey, Brian Baumgartner, Phyllis Smith, Kate Flannery, Leslie David Baker, Mindy Kaling and Paul Lieberstein also will star.
Among the series spotlighted are NBC's new dramas "Friday Night Lights," "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip," "Heroes" and "Kidnapped." The new comedies are "30 Rock" and "Twenty Good Years." NBC also welcomes the NFL back to the primetime stage with "NBC's Sunday Night Football."
