BYE BYE BIRDIE LIVE!/FEW GOOD MEN, A (NBC) - The Peacock has shelved its proposed live telecasts of Aaron Sorkin's "A Few Good Men" and Jennifer Lopez's "Bye Bye Birdie Live!" Back in February, NBC likewise tabled its plans for "Hair Live!" (THR.com)

DEBRIS (NBC, New!) - J.H. Wyman has scored a pilot order for a new drama about "two agents from two different continents, and two different mindsets, [who] must work together to investigate when wreckage from a destroyed alien spacecraft has mysterious effects on humankind." Frequency Films' Jason Hoffs will also executive produce for Legendary Television. (Deadline.com)
KENAN SHOW, THE (NBC) - Kenan Thompson's upcoming comedy has been pushed to the 2020-21 season. Paul Telegdy told reporters: "When a star is given to this network time and time again, we reciprocate. What we gave Kenan back was time, time to create a show he wants, time to do the projects he's doing and that he loves, and a little time for his family. So 'The Kenan Show' will come next season, and I think it's stronger, smarter and funnier than it would be if we forced it through the traditional cycle." (Deadline.com)
THIS IS US (NBC) - Pamela Adlon and Sophia Bush are the latest additions to the show's fourth season. Full details about their roles were not given. Additionally, both Timothy Omundson's Gregory and Ron Cephas Jones's William are due back. (Deadline.com)
