NBC book-ends fall weeks with rebooted Quantum Leap, Lopez vs Lopez

Lopez vs Lopez was picked up from a pilot earlier this month

NBC today became the first US broadcast network to show its fall schedule hand, with drama series Quantum Leap getting a primetime slot on Mondays and freshman comedy Lopez vs Lopez added to Friday nights.

Quantum Leap is a reboot of the 1990s sci-fi series of the same name, which aired on the network for five seasons between 1989 and 1993.

Produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with I Have An Idea! Entertainment, Belisarius Productions and Quinn’s House Productions, the show’s cast includes Raymond Lee, Caitlin Bassett and Ernie Hudson.

It will air on NBC’s fall Mondays between 22.00 and 23.00 following on from a two-hour airing of the US version of The Voice which returns for a 22nd season.

NBC’s other debut series on the fall slate is comedy show Lopez vs Lopez, which the network confirmed it had picked up from pilot earlier this month.

Produced by Mohawk Productions, Travieso Productions, Mi Vida Loba, 3 Arts and Universal Television, Lopez vs Lopez is a working-class comedy about dysfunction, reconnection and all the pain and joy in between. It is written and exec produced by Debby Wolfe and stars George and Mayan Lopez.

Starting in November, the show will air at 20.00-20.30 on Friday night, followed by Young Rock and then Dateline NBC.

A one-hour The Voice results show kicks off Tuesday before the second season of Le Brea at 21.00 and the final season of New Amsterdam at 22.00.

Wednesdays are spent in Chicago, with Chicago Med, Chicago Fire and Chicago PD airing back-to-back from 20.00.

Dick Wolf’s crime brand owns Thursday evenings with the flagship Law & Order kicking off season 22 at 20.00, followed by the 24th season of Law & Order: SVU. The night concludes with the third season of Law & Order: Organized Crime at 22.00.

The channel’s adaptation of Million Dollar Island, the first joint project of European format giants Studio Lambert and Talpa, as well as its adaptation of BBC format The Wheel, must wait for midseason premieres.

“While leaning into our strong, stable schedule in the fall, we’re also rethinking legacy launch timing to give our shows the best chance for success,” said Frances Berwick, chairman of entertainment networks for NBCUniversal Television and Streaming.

“With the huge reach that our affiliate partner stations provide, coupled with exclusive next-day availability on Peacock, our NBC shows will truly be accessible to audiences in any way that they want to watch.”
