"Abby's" Premiere Date

NBC will launch its new 10-episode midseason comedy “Abby’s” on Thursday, March 28 at 9:30 p.m.

“Abby’s” is executive produced by Josh Malmuth, Michael Schur and David Miner. Pamela Fryman directed the pilot.

“Abby’s” is shot outdoors in front of a live studio audience, the first time a multi-camera comedy has done so.

“Abby’s” is produced by Universal Television, Fremulon, Waila Inc. and 3 Arts Entertainment.

This unlicensed, makeshift establishment in Abby’s backyard is the perfect gathering place for locals to find camaraderie and sanctuary. To maintain the perfect bar ecosystem, all patrons must abide by a specific set of rules. This includes no cell phones (not even to look something up), understanding that earning a seat at the bar takes time to rise through the hierarchy and knowing that losing a challenge may have some unpleasant and unpalatable drink-related repercussions.

As bar owner, Abby (Natalie Morales, “Parks and Recreation,” “The Grinder,” “Trophy Wife”) has found her true calling, hosting friends and newcomers alike. No nonsense, Abby is ex-military, having served two tours as a Staff Sergeant in the Marines. Her world is shaken when new landlord Bill (Nelson Franklin, “Black-ish,” “Veep,” “New Girl”), who recently inherited the house from his deceased aunt, unexpectedly shows up citing all kinds of reasons why the whole venture is illegal. Newly divorced, he is a cautious worrier and definite non-risk-taker who eventually warms to the place and agrees to let the bar remain open, provided Abby makes some changes.

The cast of regulars also includes Fred (Neil Flynn, “The Middle,” “Scrubs”), a fixture at the bar who is grateful for a place to enjoy a beer and conversation – and refuses to allow some bureaucratic busybody to disrupt his perfect refuge; Beth (Jessica Chaffin, “Big Mouth,” “Search Party,” “Pitch Perfect 3”), a harried mom living next door who can escape the madness of her home life while still keeping an eye on things from her perch atop a bar stool; Rosie (Kimia Behpoornia, “Unicorn Store,” “Pop Rox”), the bar manager who prides herself on having memorized all 162 rules and regulations; and James (Leonard Ouzts, “Set It Up,” “Master of None”), the gentle scaredy-cat of a bouncer who crumbles in the face of confrontation.

Abby's takes the slot currently held by Will & Grace, which moves to 9PM on March 28 and April 4 for it's final two episodes of the season.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
