NBC Fast-Tracks Sitcom, Places Order for 13 Episodes

May 7, 2012  •  Post A Comment

In anticipation of the NBC upfront next week, the network has placed a 13-episode order for a sitcom, Deadline.com reports. The comedy, “Save Me,” which stars Anne Heche, has been put on a fast track at the network and is targeted for an August launch.

The show, which was created and executive produced by John Scott Shepherd, revolves around a woman who undergoes a transformation from someone who has let herself go into a woman who is strong, empowered and "awakened."

Alexa Junge, a veteran from "Friends," is in talks to become "Save Me’s" showrunner. "Save Me" joins "Go On," the Matthew Perry comedy, as the first two comedies NBC has picked up. The network is looking to have both shows premiere right after the Summer Olympics.


  1. How sad that two stars like this will be relegated to the backwater of NBC.

  2. “Awakened”??? What the heck does THAT mean?? Are they describing the character or NBC’s Prime lineup??

  3. Maybe she was a functioning narcoleptic? The description is enough for me to place a bet on “forced ‘hiatus’ or cancellation by the second ad break”.
