2007 NBC PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT GUIDE - DRAMA SERIES

THE BIONIC WOMAN

Struggling as a bartender and surrogate mom to her teen-aged sister, Jamie Sommers didn't think life could get much harder. But when a devastating car accident leaves her at death's door, Jamie's only hope of survival is through a cutting-edge, top-secret technology that comes at a hefty price. With a whole new existence and a debt to repay, Jamie must figure out how to use her extraordinary abilities for good, while weighing the personal sacrifices she will have to make. Ultimately, it's Jamie's journey of self-discovery and inner strength that will help her embrace her new life as...The Bionic Woman.

CHUCK

Chuck Bartowski is just your average computer-whiz-next-door. He spends his days working for Buy-More with his band of nerdy cohorts, longing to find a woman who can appreciate him. But when an old friend, who happens to be a CIA agent, sends Chuck a mysterious encoded email, the world's greatest spy secrets are embedded into his brain. He never asked to become the government's most powerful weapon, but the fate of the country suddenly lies in his unlikely hands. Hopefully, this won't take away from his video game time! International terrorist plots, sexy spies and cold pizza � it's all in a day's work for our trusty hero...Chuck.

FORT PIT

It's hard to get fired from the NYPD, but that doesn't mean you can't be banished. For years, Brooklyn precinct Fort Pit has been the dumping ground for the black sheep of the NYPD � good cops who screwed up and fell under the heading of New York's Less Than Finest. But now Captain Gloria Lefkawitz wants to breathe new life into the place, hiring talented rookies to break this band of slackers from within. But these recruits are wet behind the ears, and their chances of making a difference are as likely as someone storming the beaches of Normandy with a big smile and a box of Band-Aids. Rescue Me producers Peter Tolan, Denis Leary and Jim Serpico executive produce this dark comedy that's so satirical, it has to be called a drama.

JOURNEYMAN

Dan Vassar thought he had it all: a loving wife, a great son and a steady job. But life suddenly throws him a curve ball. Dan finds himself traveling into the past with a purpose � impacting people's lives for the better � and sometimes the worse. While doing so, Dan reconnects with Livia Beale, his ex-fianc�e whom he lost in a mysterious plane crash. Now armed with the knowledge of the present, will he be able to save her? What would that mean to his own future? And how would it change a man who thought he had it all?

LIFE

Meet Detective Charlie Crews. Behind him sit tough years of hard prison time for a crime he didn't commit. Ahead of him lie the challenges of a world that's moved on without him. Now it's time to walk through the painful cobwebs of his past and re-enter the scorn-filled halls of a job he loves. It's no easy task, especially when his reluctant new partner is as jaded as Dani Reese. Charlie's appreciation for life's details not only offers up unique insights into each crime, it reminds us of all the little things we take for granted.

LIPSTICK JUNGLE

These women aren't looking for Mr. Big, they are Mr. Big. Based on the best-selling book by Candace Bushnell (Sex and the City), this enticing new dramedy follows three high-powered friends as they weather the ups and downs of lives lived at the top of their game. Nico, editor-in-chief of a hot fashion magazine, has her eye on becoming CEO. Movie exec Wendy does everything she can to balance career and family. And free-spirited designer Victory longs to make her dreams come true, and maybe find Mr. Right along the way. Armed with humor and strength, these three modern New York women support one another through the triumphs and tears that are all part of making it big in The Big Apple.

MAYOR OF NEW YORK

Joe Capanelli became New York's Public Advocate to fight for the little guy. After all, he still considers himself a kid from the old neighborhood, and prides himself on his shoot-from-the-gut attitude. What will change for Joe when the Mayor slips into a coma and he's forced to take his place? What will happen when the person elected to fight City Hall becomes City Hall? How will unpolished Joe learn to work with the refined, headstrong Deputy Mayor who is so opposed to his nonconforming ideas? Joe may be getting the keys to the city, but it's not going to be easy.

WINTERS

Detective Christie Winters knows how to read people, and one thing she knows for sure...everybody lies. The suspects, the cops, even the victims. She's smart, sexy, tough-as-nails and willing to do whatever it takes to solve a case. But when she's paired with Detective Luis Nelson, a man of faith who sees good in all people, Winters faces her greatest challenge yet. With no boundaries and a dark past to hide, the biggest mystery of all is...who is the real Christie Winters?
