The Emmy-nominated "Last Comic Standing" competition series returns to NBC for its seventh season in search of the funniest comedian in America with new host Craig Robinson (NBC's "The Office"). The show scans the country looking for the best stand-up comedian with the winner receiving an exclusive talent deal with NBC and $250,000.

"100 Questions" is a new comedy series written and executive-produced by Christopher Moynihan ("For Your Consideration"). Charlotte Payne (Sophie Winkleman, "Peep Show") is looking for love but she has yet to meet Mr. Right.

Also starring are Michael Benjamin Washington ("Mamma Mia"), Smith Cho ("Fired Up!"), Collette Wolfe ("17 Again"), Christopher Moynihan and David Walton ("Quarterlife").

"Persons Unknown" is a one-hour mystery drama in which a group of strangers must come together to solve the puzzle of their lives. The series is from Oscar-winning writer Christopher McQuarrie ("The Usual Suspects") who executive-produces with Heather McQuarrie and Remi Aubuchon. The series stars Alan Ruck ("Spin City") and Jason Wiles ("Third Watch").

The roller-coaster adventure movie "The Jensen Project" explores the secret community of world-class geniuses who do cutting-edge research that they share anonymously to help the world. Starring are Patricia Richardson ("Home Improvement"), LeVar Burton ("Star Trek: The Next Generation"), Kellie Martin ("ER") and Brady Smith ("CSI"). "The Jensen Project" is produced by Muse Entertainment and Procter & Gamble Productions, Inc.

In "The Making of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter," viewers will receive an inside peek at this spectacular new theme park environment based on the bestselling books and mega-hit feature film series at Universal Orlando Resort in Florida.
