Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Gets Extended! NBC Renews Series For Second Season

NBC has renewed the musical dramedy, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist starring the fan-favorite Jane Levy. And thank God to because the season finale was one of the most depressing things I watched all year!

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, whileIndebted is not expected to continue.

Like most shows these days, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist has amassed a huge following through digital downloads and is NBC’s highest digitally downloaded show.

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.
