Three freshman NBC series are getting full-season orders: The Event, Law & Order: Los Angeles and Outsourced are all getting nine more episodes.
The pickups are all shows produced by Universal Media Studios and represent NBC’s first round of full-season orders.
“We are pleased with the quality of The Event, Law & Order: Los Angeles and Outsourced, and feel they are an important part of helping to re-build our schedule and our studio pipeline,” said Angela Bromstad, NBC’s entertainment president . “We believe in these new series and the creative auspices behind them.”
NBC has not made a verdict for the Warner-Bros.-produced Chuck, Chase and Undercovers. There are rumors of six Undercovers scripts being ordered and a potential back nine for Chase.
In the ratings, none of the shows have popped much in recent weeks. The Event has averaged a 3.0 rating and 9.1 million viewers using the most current ratings date including DVR viewership. LOLA has generated a 2.5 rating and 8.7 million viewers. Outsourced has averaged a 3.0 rating and 6.3 million viewers.
The news does mean, however, that Event fans will have a stronger chance of finding out what “The Event” actually is — sources say its reveal is planned for near the end of the first season.
