• NBC is moving “Found” from its previous midseason premiere (Feb. 19) to a fall 2023 launch.
• In addition, the network is ordering additional scripts as a show of its commitment to the series.
• Susan Rovner, Chairman, Entertainment Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming: “After watching the first few episodes of ‘Found,’ it quickly became clear that our love for this show has continued to grow and grow with each step of the process. Our goal is always to find the absolute best home for all our series, and it’s particularly the case with one as important as this. By moving it to fall, we’re able to better leverage our resources, including lead-in and marketing muscle, enabling us to launch ‘Found’ to the largest possible audience across all our platforms.”
