Universal Television produces or co-produces series for primetime and late night, as well as long-form and digital media projects for a variety of broadcast networks and other distribution platforms. Its current scripted roster features critical favorite comedies "Will & Grace," “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “The Good Place,” and "Superstore,” as well as dramas "Shades of Blue," "Chicago Fire" (and its spinoffs) and "Good Girls," among others. Many of these series or creative talent have been honored with prestigious Emmy, Golden Globe, Peabody, SAG and AFI awards.
Additionally, the studio, along with Wolf Films, produces "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," which is part of the most successful drama series brand in television history, and recently renewed for a 20th season. New and upcoming series from Universal Television include NBC dramas “New Amsterdam,” “The Enemy Within,” “The Village,” and “F.B.I.,” and “Magnum P.I.” for CBS. Some of the comedies include “I Feel Bad” (NBC), “Forever” (Amazon), and Russian Doll (Netflix).
Universal Television has a rich legacy comprised of the merged entities of NBC Studios and the original Universal Television. The former NBC Studios first made its mark in the 1950s with NBC’s hit western "Bonanza" and went on to create more series, including "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," "Providence" and "Will & Grace." Universal Television was created in 1951, and its roster of memorable programs include “The A-Team," "Columbo," "The Rockford Files," "Miami Vice," “Murder, She Wrote” and numerous others.
Late-night programs include NBC’s successful "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," "Late Night with Seth Meyers," "Saturday Night Live" and "Last Call with Carson Daly."
Landmark programs in the long-form arena have included "Peter the Great" (winner of three Emmys), "An Early Frost" (winner of four Emmys and a Peabody Award), the acclaimed miniseries "Rich Man, Poor Man," and the first made-for-television movie, "See How They Run," which aired on NBC in 1964.
