THE EVENT, Blair UnderwoodAnd NBC’s pickups continue!

After ordering two dramas and three comedies on Thursday, the peacock network picked up two additional pilots on Friday.

Ironside, a drama starring Blair Underwood, who last starred on NBC’s short-lived The Event, and a sitcom from Cougar Town and Scrubs’ creator Bill Lawrence join J. J. Abram‘s Believe and the About a Boy TV adaptation as the projects that made the cut.

Ironside: Underwood stars as sexy and acerbic police detective who is relegated to a wheelchair after a shooting in this remake of the ‘60s series, which will find his character pushing and prodding his hand-picked team to solve the city’s most difficult cases. Greek‘s Spencer Grammer, The Killing‘s Brent Sexton also star.

Undateable: Based on the book by Ellen Rakieten and Anne Coyle, the multi-cam series from Lawrence centers on a group of friends called the “undateables” whose lives are changed by a confident slacker who enters their world and teaches them everything he knows about “the game of love.” Whitney‘s Chris D’Elia and Brent Morin star.
