NBC has given a series order to emotional friendship drama Council of Dads.

   

In addition to Scott and Callies, Council of Dads stars  

Council of Dads is the third pickup NBC has made in this pre-upfronts week, following legal drama Bluff City Law and immigration comedy Sunnyside. Its series order makes 2019-20 the third consecutive year NBC has tried to find a This Is Us-ish drama, having struck out with Rise and The Village the past two seasons. Additionally, it comes a season after ABC found some success with This Is Us-ish drama A Million Little Things.

Will you be watching? Do you think Council of Dads is the show to break NBC’s unlucky streak with emotional dramas? Would you like to see the show premiere in the fall or be saved until midseason?
