NBC had added more shows to its 2013-14 schedule, including a remake of the 1960's and '70's detective drama Ironside, a cop-show spinoff of Chicago Fire called Chicago PD and a new comedy called Undateable

According to LATimes.com there's no news yet as to where NBC will put these new shows, but the network will officially announce the fall lineup on Monday. According to Deadline, Chicago PD brings Dick Wolf's series on NBC next season to 3, including the recently renewed Law & Order: SVU and Chicago Fire. Chicago PD originated as a back-door pilot in the first season finale of Chicago Fire. 

Here are the network's descriptions of the new series:


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. 


n the gritty world of the NYPD, no one's tougher than Det. Robert Ironside (Blair Underwood, 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), Holly (Spencer Grammer, Greek) and Teddy (Neal Bledsoe, Smash), 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. 

Chicago PD 

District 21 of the Chicago Police Department is made up of two distinctly different groups. There are the uniformed cops who patrol the beat and go head to head with the city's street crimes. And there's the Intelligence Unit, the team that combats the city's major offenses - organized crime, drug trafficking, high profile murders and beyond. Leading the Intelligence team is Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), a man not against skirting the law in the pursuit of justice. Demanding and tough, only those who can take the heat survive under Voight's command. Take Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) - despite his troubled history with his boss, Dawson has ambitions of running the unit. so if that means facing off against Voight every day, he'll persevere. From the street cops with dreams of moving up to the elite crew who are already in, "life on the job" is a daily challenge. The enormous responsibilities that come with the territory take an emotional toll, as we'll find when we follow the personal lives of our characters outside the walls of District 21. From Emmy-winning producer Dick Wolf and the team behind Chicago Fire, comes Chicago PD, a gripping, character-driven new police drama about those who put it all on the line to serve and protect.
