Tuesdays on NBC (8-8:30 p.m. ET)
Nominated for six Emmy Awards and five Golden Globes (including Best Comedy), Just Shoot Me is the critically acclaimed ensemble comedy from multiple award-winning writer/producer Steven Levitan (NBCs Frasier, The Larry Sanders Show). Now entering its seventh season, the series shifts to Tuesday nights after generating top-10 demographic ratings over the past two seasons as part of NBCs top-rated Must See TV Thursday lineup.
Set in the New York editorial offices of the fictional fashion magazine Blush, Just Shoot Me follows the lives of Blushs colorful staff, including Maya Gallo (Laura San Giacomo, sex, lies and videotape), a serious journalist who is determined to change the magazines fluffy tone despite the efforts of her father, Blush publisher Jack Gallo (George Segal, Flirting with Disaster), who remains focused solely on his bottom line and the things he feels women want.
Also on staff are beauty and fashion editor Nina Van Horn (Emmy nominee Wendie Malick, Dream On), a fast-living, neurotic ex-model; Blushs commitment-phobic, in-house photographer, Elliott DiMauro (Enrico Colantoni, Galaxy Quest); and Jacks wisecracking, power-hungry assistant, Dennis Finch (David Spade, NBCs Saturday Night Live).
This season, Just Shoot Me also welcomes Emmy Award-winning actress Rena Sofer (General Hospital, NBCs Ed) to the cast. Sofer joins as Blushs newest hire, Vicki Costa, a Brooklyn hairstylist who serves as Jacks guru of style and confidante.
During the 2001-02 season, Just Shoot Me was primetime’s No. 3-ranked, full-season comedy among adults 18-49 and won its fiercely competitive time period among adults, men and women 18-34.
Just Shoot Me is produced by Universal Studios. Series creator Levitan serves as executive producer along with Judd Pillot (Coach), John Peaslee (Coach), Jon Pollack (Spin City), Kevin Slattery and Pamela Fryman. Fryman will also direct each episode this season.
