NBC released its new 2015-2016 TV Schedule on Sunday in advance of the network’s upfront presentation on Monday in New York.

Here’s a sneak peek at some the new comedies and dramas coming to the Peacock network.

“People Are Talking”
From producer Will Packer (“Ride Along”) and director Pam Fryman (“How I Met Your Mother”) comes this new comedy about two diverse couples who are both neighbors and best friends. As they go through life side-by-side, they can’t help but analyze and obsess about everything. From topics like sex and race, to the fact that the trusted new babysitter might just be a porn star, nothing is out of bounds for this wildly outspoken foursome.

“Blindspot”
From executive producer Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “The Mysteries of Laura”) comes “Blindspot”: A vast international plot explodes when a beautiful Jane Doe, completely covered in mysterious, intricate tattoos, is discovered naked in Times Square with no memory of who she is or how she got there. But there’s one tattoo that is impossible to miss: the name of FBI agent Kurt Weller, emblazoned across her back. “Jane,” Agent Weller and the rest of the FBI quickly realize that each mark on her body is a crime to solve, leading them closer to the truth about her identity and the mysteries to be revealed.

“Heartbreaker”
Based on the real life and achievements of Dr. Kathy Magliato, this character-driven medical drama follows Dr. Alex Panttiere (Melissa George, “The Slap”), an outspoken world-renowned heart-transplant surgeon and one of the few women in her field. Stubborn and fearless, Alex always operates on her own terms. She revels in a racy personal life that’s a full-time job in itself, manages the daily demands of skeptical faculty and dutiful interns, and pushes the boundaries of medical science to impressive new heights.

“The Player”
From the executive producers of “The Blacklist” and starring Wesley Snipes and Philip Winchester (“Strike Back,” “Fringe”) comes an action-packed Las Vegas thriller about a former military operative turned security expert who is drawn into a high-stakes game where an organization of wealthy individuals gamble on his ability to stop some of the biggest crimes imaginable from playing out. Can he take them down from the inside and get revenge for the death of his wife, or is it true what they say: The house always wins.

“Best Time Ever”
Neil Patrick Harris can now add variety show host to his already impressive resume. “Best Time Ever,” which has received a 10-episode order from NBC, will be adapted from the British offering “Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway,” which presents a mix of sketches and games.
