NBC Makes their 2011-2012 Pickups (And Cancels some others)

I had a post up on Wednesday with the first batch of decisions (but it was eaten in the Blogger crash).

NBC has made their decisions on which pilots to pickup and which shows to Renew and Cancel. 

The network has picked up 5 new dramas. Among those picked up are the remake of the British drama Prime Suspect, the musical series Smash, the Inception-style cop drama Awake (which was known as REM in development), the 1960s show The Playboy Club, and the fairy-tale show Grimm

On the comedy side NBC picked up 6 new comedies. They picked up the multicamera sitcom from Whitney Cummings called Whitney. They picked up the comedy Up All Night starring Will Arnett and Christina Applegate previously in the week. Today they announced the pickups of Chelsea Handler's new comedy Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea, the adaption of the British comedy Free Agents starring Hank Azaria, the romantic comedy Bent, and they also picked up BFFs

This makes a total of 11 new series for NBC, as they try to rebuild their network.

Among the pilot pickups, some shows were Renewed and Cancelled as well. Chuck was given a new season. Parenthood and Harry's Law were renewed as well. OutsourcedThe Event and Law and Order: LA were cancelled.

Some ground rules for you to follow when commenting here:
1. This is probably the most important rule: be nice. I will not tolerate any rudeness towards other commenters or myself.
2. Be relevant, comments will be deleted if they are not relevant to the discussion.
3. No spoilers, I and many other people don't want to know what your mother's, sister's, best friend's, brother said about what's going to happen on Chuck. There are many places for discussing what's going to happen on the show in the future, this isn't one of them.
