NBC Universal sent a wide sampling of its productions in the 2016 Emmy Awards FYC mailer recently received by Television Academy voters. Inside were programs produced for its own peacock web (“The Blacklist,” “Law & Order: SVU,” etc.), plus other networks like Fox (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), A&E (“Bates Motel”), Hulu (“The Path”) and more. The single folder booklet comes with eight discs with sample episodes for each show and a code for voters to access the NBC FYC site and watch full seasons of its contenders on line. See photos above.
Last year NBC Universal scored an Emmy coup with Netflix when its new series “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” reaped seven Emmy nominations, including Best Comedy. Now “Kimmy” is back in its FYC package along with the studio’s newest collaboration with Netflix, “Master of None,” which earned star Aziz Ansari a Golden Globe nomination earlier this year.
Among its own new laffers, NBC is pushing “Superstore” (starring Emmy winner America Ferrera), critical darling “The Carmichael Show” and two now-defunct comedies “Crowded” and “Telenovela.” “The Mindy Project” is among returning programs.
Dramas include “Blindspot,” “Shades of Blue” (Jennifer Lopez), “Grimm,” “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.,” “Chicago Med,” “Game of Silence” and “Heartbeat.”
Variety and special class programs include “Adele: Live in New York,” “The Wiz Live” and “Saturday Night Live.” Variety Talk entries are “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, “Last Call with Carson Daly” and “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” Dolly Parton‘s “Coat of Many Colors” is the lone TV Movie included in the FYC mailer.
Emmy winning Reality Competition show “The Voice” and two-time Emmy winning Reality Host champ Jane Lynch‘s “Hollywood Game Night” kick off the reality portion of the mailer, which also includes “American Ninja Warrior,” “America’s Got Talent” and “Little Big Shots.”
