The new year will usher two high-profile NBC comedies with Latina actresses. The shows "Superstore" with America Ferrera and "Telenovela" with Eva Longoria debut on Monday, Jan. 4. But viewers can get a sneak preview following upcoming live episodes of “The Voice.”
Two original episodes of the ensemble workplace comedy “Superstore” will air back-to-back from 10-11 pET on Monday, Nov. 30, following the two-hour telecast of “The Voice."
On Dec. 7, viewers can watch back-to-back episodes of the behind-the-scenes comedy “Telenovela” starring Eva Longoria as the star of a hit Spanish soap opera. The episodes will air Dec. 7 from 10-11pET following the next-to-last episode of "The Voice."
“We’re extremely excited about ‘Superstore’ and are so fortunate to have the incredibly talented America Ferrera, who won over the hearts of viewers and critics in ‘Ugly Betty,’ coming to NBC as a producer and star,” said Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment. “She’s joined by a terrific ensemble in a comedy set in a location everyone in the country can really relate to.”
“We are also over the moon to have the incomparable ‘desperate housewife’ Eva Longoria producing and starring in ‘Telenovela,’ which we love. Her tour-de-force performance as Ana Sofia, the demanding but vulnerable star of a larger-than-life telenovela, is hilarious,” she stated.
