NBC ANNOUNCES FALL PREMIERE DATES FOR NEW 2014-15 SEASON

Both the Second Season of "The Blacklist" and Season Seven of "The Voice," With New Coaches Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani, Launch Sept. 22; Debra Messing's Breezy Drama "The Mysteries of Laura" Begins Sept. 24; Critical and Fan Favorite "Parenthood" Starts Its Final Season Sept. 25; and David Caspe's Comedy "Marry Me" Premieres Oct. 14

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - June 2, 2014 - NBC has announced premiere dates for its fall schedule, which include No. 1 broadcast program "Sunday Night Football," the return of No. 1 reality series "The Voice," No. 1 new series "The Blacklist," and the debuts of highly anticipated comedy "Marry Me" and drama "The Mysteries of Laura."

"Sunday Night Football" launches its campaign on Thursday, Sept. 4 when the Green Bay Packers travel to the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks (8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT). Three days later on Sunday, Sept. 7, the Indianapolis Colts will play at the AFC champion Denver Broncos (8:20 p.m. ET/5:20 p.m. PT). The game will be preceded by the season premiere of "Football Night in America" (7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT).

"The Biggest Loser," in which contestants lose weight in the hope of restarting their lives, returns for its 16th season Thursday, Sept. 11 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT).

The Emmy Award-winning musical competition series "The Voice," with coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani, begins its seventh season Monday, Sept. 22 (8-10 p.m.).

"The Blacklist" returns for its second season Sept. 22 (10-11 p.m.) following "The Voice." "The Blacklist," which stars Emmy winner James Spader as "Red" Reddington, was the top new series last season and helped propel NBC to No. 1 in the 18-49 demo for the first time in 10 years.

Following a two-hour episode of "The Voice" on Tuesday, Sept. 23, "Chicago Fire" (10-11 p.m.) returns for its third season as the heroic men and women of the Windy City's fire department consistently put their lives in on the line in order to save others.

Wednesday, Sept. 24 marks the debut of the new Debra Messing series "The Mysteries of Laura" (8-9 p.m.). In this breezy new drama, Messing plays a NYPD detective who must balance her professional life as a cop with her home life as a mother of unruly twin boys and on the cusp of divorce.

On that same night and back in their familiar Wednesday timeslots, "Law & Order: SVU" (9-10 p.m.), and star Mariska Hargitay, returns for an astonishing 16th season while "Chicago P.D." (10-11 p.m.) comes back for its second season.

NBC's beloved family drama "Parenthood" begins its sixth and final season Thursday, Sept. 25 (10-11 p.m.).

Venerable newsmagazine "Dateline NBC" makes its season premiere with a two-hour episode Friday, Sept. 26 (9-11 p.m.).

Comedy "Bad Judge" begins Thursday, Oct. 2 (9-9:30 p.m.) with Kate Walsh starring as a judge who enjoys living on the wild side, but is one of the most respected jurists when behind the bench. Following "Bad Judge" that night, "A to Z" (9:30 p.m.) makes its debut. The comedy series, which stars Ben Feldman and Cristin Milioti, chronicles the relationship of a young couple from the first time they meet.

Also on the comedy front, "Marry Me" - from "Happy Endings" executive producer David Caspe, about how a couple's engagement gets off to a rough start - launches Tuesday, Oct. 14 (9-9:30 p.m.). That is immediately followed by Jason Katims' second-year series "About a Boy" (9:30 p.m.), which was one of the most successful new comedies of last season.

Fan favorite "Grimm" begins its fourth campaign Friday, Oct. 24 (9-10 p.m.), and that will be immediately followed by new series "Constantine" (10-11 p.m.). "Constantine" is based on the wildly popular DC Comics series "Hellblazer" and stars Matt Ryan as master of the occult John Constantine.

Finally, the highly touted drama "State of Affairs" will begin Monday, Nov. 17 (10-11 p.m.). In the series, Katherine Heigl plays a CIA analyst who, faced with constant moral and political judgment calls, prioritizes the President's Daily Briefing.

As a reminder, "The Blacklist" will return to NBC's primetime lineup with a two-part episode beginning Sunday, Feb. 1 immediately following the Super Bowl. Part two will air Thursday, Feb. 5 (9-10 p.m.) in its regular midseason timeslot.
