Coming off a season in which the network catapulted to No. 1 in the 18-49 demo and saw double-digit improvement in many prominent timeslots, NBC has announced a line-up of popular returning series, inventive new comedies, compelling new dramas and season seven of the Emmy Award-winning musical competition series "The Voice."

Highlights of the just-announced year-round schedule, which will be bolstered by the Feb. 1 Super Bowl, include a pair of comedies - "Bad Judge" and "Mission Control" - from the brilliant and warped minds of Will Ferrell and Adam McKay; "Marry Me," the new series from "Happy Endings" creator David Caspe; "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," from the Emmy Award-winning team behind "30 Rock" - Tina Fey and Robert Carlock; and projects from Ellen DeGeneres and the producing team of Rashida Jones and Will McCormack.

On the drama side, Emmy and SAG Award winner Debra Messing stars as a cop balancing her job and stressful home life in "The Mysteries of Laura"; Katherine Heigl returns to television as a high-level CIA analyst in "State of Affairs"; Hope Davis is forced to choose between family and country in the riveting modern-day spy drama "Allegiance"; a wildly popular DC Comics character gets a Primetime makeover in "Constantine"; and NBC's lineup of A-list producers includes Joe Carnahan, Peter Horton, Greg Berlanti and David S. Goyer.

The new drama additions are "Allegiance," "Constantine," "The Mysteries of Laura," "Odyssey" and "State of Affairs."

The new comedy additions are "A to Z," "Bad Judge," "Marry Me," "Mission Control," "Mr. Robinson," "One Big Happy" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt."

Returning scripted programming includes "About a Boy," "The Blacklist," "Chicago Fire," "Chicago P.D.," "Grimm," "Hannibal," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Parenthood" and "Parks and Recreation."

Returning alternative series include "America Ninja Warrior," "America's Got Talent," "Celebrity Apprentice," "Hollywood Game Night" and "The Voice."

Previously announced new event series will also join the year-round line-up, including "Emerald City," "Aquarius," "A.D." and "Heroes Reborn."
