Here is the full clip of the Paley Front Row that took place last Friday.
Stars of NBC’s Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist (Jane Levy, Skylar Astin, Alex Newell, John Clarence Stewart, Mary Steenburgen, Lauren Graham, and Peter Gallagher), along with creator Austin Winsberg and choreographer Mandy Moore, gather at Paley Front Row 2020 to celebrate their show. Topics include: the show’s “mission statement” of empathy; Levy’s “genuinely moved” reactions to watching her castmates perform; Graham’s depiction of Joan as more than a “tough boss lady”; Astin and Stewart’s praise for their vulnerable, flawed characters; Newell’s thoughts on Mo’s outward confidence and inner fears; crafting authentic stories with elements from the actors’ real lives; inspiration from Winsberg’s father, who had PSP, and from Gallagher’s mother’s Alzheimer’s disease; working with the Deaf West Theatre; the audacious “American Pie” number in the season finale; and finding Mitch’s physical limitations as well as his pre-disease persona.
July 9, 2020 / Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist / Comments Off on ‘Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist’ Renewed For Season 2 By NBC
How did I not share this already!?!?!? So excited! Bring on Season 2! Thank you Deadline for the news!
NBC has ordered a second season of musical dramedy Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist starring Jane Levy. We hear the order is for 13 episodes.
A co-production between Lionsgate TV and Universal TV, the series had been considered the strongest contender among NBC’s bubble shows this season. It has a passionate following and recently topped USA Today’s annual Save Our Shows poll with record support.
Of the other NBC bubble series, the network this week canceled Lincoln Rhyme: The Hunt for the Bone Collector and Perfect Harmony. Manifest is still very much in contention as NBC and producer Warner Bros. TV are discussing a deal, while Indebted is not expected to continue.
Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist has been a digital phenom with huge online/social media following whose very modest Live+Same Day linear ratings are dwarfed by its delayed multi-platform numbers. It is one of NBC’s strongest digital performers, with digital sources generating more than half its 35-day viewership in the 18-49 demo.
For instance, Season 1 of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist averaged a ho-hum 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.1 million viewers overall in Live+7 Nielsens. But the Jan. 7 series premiere has grown to a 3.3 rating in 18-49 and 7.9 million viewers to date when digital and linear delayed viewing is factored in.
Because digital breakouts of that caliber don’t come along often, NBC, Lionsgate TV and Universal TV had been trying to find a business framework to make a renewal on the linear network feasible, including possibly pursuing a full-season streaming pact.
All episodes of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist are available on NBCUniversal’s new streaming service, Peacock, whose premium tier offers next-day episodes of the show.
“We were overwhelmed by the number of people who fell in love with Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist and how much joy it brought to everyone,” said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment. “We’re thrilled to bring it back and can’t wait to see how Zoey’s journey continues.”
Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist is created/executive produced by Jake in Progress creator Austin Winsberg, who serves as showrunner. It stars Levy as Zoey Clarke, a whip-smart computer coder forging her way in San Francisco. After an unusual event, Zoey, who always preferred podcasts over pop songs, suddenly starts to hear the innermost wants, thoughts and desires of the people around her – her family, co-workers and complete strangers – through popular songs. At first, she questions her own sanity, but after getting some guidance from her musically adept neighbor, Mo (Alex Newell), and making a breakthrough with her ailing father (Peter Gallagher), Zoey soon realizes this unwanted curse might just be an incredibly wonderful gift as she connects with the world like never before.
