Below are series that NBC is picking up for the 2013-14 season (via NBC's press release):

IRONSIDE

In the gritty world of the NYPD, no one's tougher than Det. Robert Ironside (Blair Underwood, "The Event," "The New Adventures of Old Christine"). He's a fearless cop who won't stop until the guilty are brought to justice. He and his trusted, handpicked team of specialists - Virgil (Pablo Schreiber, "The Wire" "Lights Out"), Holly (Spencer Grammer, "Greek," "As the World Turns") and Teddy (Neal Bledsoe, "Smash," "Ugly Betty"), as well as his former partner Gary (Brent Sexton, "The Killing") and boss Det. Ed Rollins (Kenneth Choi, "Sons of Anarchy") - will do whatever it takes to solve New York's most difficult and notorious crimes. As a detective, Ironside's instincts are second to none, and those around him have to stay on their toes if they want to keep up... because when his spine was shattered by a bullet two years ago, Ironside swore he'd never let a wheelchair slow him down. Nothing gets in his way.

From executive producer-writer Michael Caleo ("Rescue Me," "The Sopranos") and executive producers Teri Weinberg ("Ugly Betty"), John Davis, John Fox, Ron West and David Semel ("Heroes"), "Ironside" is produced by Universal Television, Davis Entertainment, Yellow Brick Road Productions.

UNDATEABLE

When confident slacker Danny Beeman (Chris D'Elia, "Whitney," "Glory Daze") takes Justin (comedian Brent Morin) on as a roommate, Danny unwittingly inherits Justin's group of romantically challenged friends. Seeing himself as the ultimate player, Danny decides to teach the crew (who he dubs "The Undateables") everything he knows about "the game of love." For their first lesson, Danny takes the guys to an event hosted by his sister, Leslie (Bianca Kajlich, "Rules of Engagement"), who is a single mom with dating difficulties of her own. At first, Danny's advice seems to pay off big-time: The shy guy talks to a girl, the no-filter dude learns it's never OK to ask a woman when she's due, and his nebbish roommate, Justin, goes home with a mystery woman. It's not until the next day that they figure out it was Leslie! Talk about a bunch who just can't get lucky! From the executive producers of "Cougar Town" comes a hilarious new comedy about the "do's," "don'ts" and "duhs" of dating.

From Emmy-nominated executive producer Bill Lawrence ("Scrubs," "Cougar Town"), Jeff Ingold and executive producer/writer Adam Sztykiel ("Due Date") "Undateable" is a production of Warner Bros. Television and Doozer Productions. Scott Ellis ("Guys with Kids") directs the pilot episode.
