Pasadena, CA – NBC’s day at TCA yesterday largely put to rest concerns expressed throughout the broadcast portion of this tour about diversity issues in network programming. There were panels for the Jennifer Lopez cop drama “Shades of Blue,” the America Ferrera comedy “Superstore,” the Eva Longoria comedy “Telenovela” and the Jerrod Carmichael comedy “The Carmichael Show.” The panels for other NBC series, including the medical drama “Heartbeat” and super-producer Dick Wolf’s trilogy “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago PD” and “Chicago Med” also made clear that diversity is a priority at NBC.
