"Ironside" stars Blair Underwood as a New York detective who was wounded in a shooting and is now confined to a wheelchair, but still tackles tough cases with his team of experts.

It comes from executive producer-writer Michael Caleo (“Rescue Me,” “The Sopranos”) and executive producers Teri Weinberg (“Ugly Betty”), John Davis, John Fox, Ron West and David Semel (“Heroes”).

It's executive produced by Mike Sikowitz ("Rules of Engagement").
"Dracula" follows the mysterious bloodsucker (Jonathan Rhys Meyers, "The Tudors") who has just arrived in London posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. But he has another motivation: He hopes to take revenge on those who cursed him with immortality. Also stars Victoria Smurfit, Thomas Kretschmann, Jessica De Gouw, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Nonso Anozie and Katie McGrath. Daniel Knauf, Tony Krantz, Colin Callender and Gareth Neame executive produce.
NBC released a first look at its newly picked up series, "The Blacklist."
Clearly wanting to give the hour-long thriller every chance to become a hit, the network has given it the cherry spot after talent competition, "The Voice," on Mondays at 10 p.m.
The drama stars James Spader as Raymond “Red” Reddington, an ex-con who turns himself in the FBI to help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, under the condition that he speaks only to Elizabeth “Liz” Keen (Megan Boone, “Law & Order: Los Angeles”), an FBI profiler fresh out of Quantico.
The series' title refers to a “blacklist” of politicians, mobsters, spies and international terrorists, which Raymond will help catch with the caveat that Liz continues to work as his partner.
It also stars Diego Klattenhoff (“Homeland”), Harry Lennix (“Man of Steel”), Ryan Eggold (“90210”) and Ilfenesh Hadera (“Da Brick”).
