Chuck, Undercovers on NBC's fall schedule (clips!)

NBC announced its 2010-11 prime-time fall schedule yesterday, and it was good news for returning spy fave Chuck, along with the new shows, the conspiracy thriller The Event and the J.J. Abrams spy drama Undercovers. The superhero drama The Cape will premiere later in the season, most likely in midseason.

Chuck stays on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, followed by The Event and the new Jerry Bruckheimer U.S. Marshall series, Chase. Undercovers kicks off Wednesday nights, followed by the returning Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and new series Law & Order: Los Angeles.

"This new schedule brings NBC back to basics with its commitment to quality scripted programming," said NBC Universal Television Entertainment chairman Jeff Gaspin. "Our new shows are distinctive and feature a combination of the biggest talent, the brightest new stars and the strongest auspices in television. With this new schedule, we're poised to take the next step toward our long-term goals with a lineup that has stabilized and has been building solid momentum through the second half of the season."

"Our team has been working tirelessly to achieve our ambitious goals, and we are so pleased to see that these new series demonstrate tremendous upside for NBC," said NBC Primetime Entertainment President Angela Bromstad. "We feel that this development season introduces shows that will become part of the great programming legacy of our network."

NBC picked up seven new dramas, five new comedies, and one alternative program.

As was announced earlier, Heroes has been canceled.
