Last week, NBC announced the premiere date for the Michael Schur comedy series, Abby's.
The bar-set sitcom starring Natalie Morales will premiere Thursday, March 28 at 9:30/8:30c (which is currently occupied by The Good Place and Will & Grace beginning next week) on NBC.
Abby's about a bar owner, Abby, who has found her true calling, hosting friends and newcomers alike. No nonsense, Abby is ex-military, having served two tours as a Staff Sergeant in the Marines. Her world is shaken when a new landlord Bill, who recently inherited the house from his deceased aunt, unexpectedly shows up citing all kinds of reasons why the whole venture is illegal. Newly divorced, he is a cautious worrier and definite non-risk-taker who eventually warms to the place and agrees to let the bar remain open; provided Abby makes some changes.
The 10 episodes series is shot outdoors in front of a live studio audience, which is the first time a multi-camera comedy has done.
