NBC’s freshman drama Grimm received a very early renewal in mid-March. And the network’s comedy pilot Go On starring Matthew Perry was given an unusually early series pickup 10 days ago. I hear both are being eyed for an early launch in August, following NBC’s coverage of the summer Olympic Games in London. NBC, which is seeking a ratings turnaround, had been contemplating an early rollout for a number of series to take advantage of the monster promotional platform that the Olympics provide. To make an August launch date, Grimm and Go On are expected to start production early. I hear Grimm writers are already working while writers on Go On, created by Scott Silveri and directed by Todd Holland, will convene as early as next week.
