Coming in late this Fall TV season are two new shows from ABC and NBC. First, the ABC sitcom ‘Super Fun Night’ stars funnygal Rebel Wilson as a Junior Attorney, meanwhile on NBC’s ‘Ironside’ Blair Underwood takes the throne as the title character in this remake of a classic detective series from the 60’s.
Super Fun Night – New
Junior attorney Kimmie Boubier (Rebel Wilson) and her two best friends Helen-Alice (Liza Lapira) and Marika (Lauren Ash) have had a standing date every Friday night for the last 13 years. They even have a motto for what they call “Friday Night Fun Night”: “Always together! Always Inside!” However, Kimmie’s recent promotion throws a monkey wrench into the tradition. Not only is she now working with her idol, “Lady Lawyer of the Year” Felicity Vanderstone, but she meets a dashingly handsome British attorney, Richard Lovell (Kevin Bishop), who invites her to his party at a trendy club. Determined to spend time with Richard and heed Felicity’s advice to network, Kimmie sets out to convince her friends to take Super Fun Night on the road.
Super Fun Night stars Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect, Bridesmaids) as Kimmie, Lauren Ash (Lars and the Real Girl) as Marika, Liza Lapira (Don’t Trust the B—in Apt. 23) as Helen-Alice, and Kevin Bishop (Star Stories) as Richard.
Super Fun Night was written and co-executive produced by Rebel Wilson. Executive producers are Conan O’Brien, David Kissinger, and director John Riggi (30 Rock). Super Fun Night is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Conaco and Warner Bros. Television.
Ironside – New
In the gritty world of the NYPD, no one’s tougher than Detective Robert Ironside. He’s a fearless cop who won’t stop until the guilty are brought to justice. He and his trusted, handpicked team of specialists will do whatever it takes to solve New York’s most difficult and notorious crimes – even if it means breaking the rules.
Tough, sexy and acerbic, Ironside’s never been afraid to call it like he sees it. As a detective, his 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 damn wheelchair slow him down.
Justice. Nothing gets in his way. Blair Underwood stars in a bold new drama about a different kind of cop. One-hour drama.
