UP ALL NIGHT (NBC) “Pilot” Episode 1

Up All Night

UP ALL NIGHT “Pilot” Episode 1 airs Wednesday, September 14 on NBC (8-8:30 p.m. ET).

Episode Synopsis: Determined not to compromise her career or cool reputation to the clichés of motherhood, Reagan Brinkley (Christina Applegate) adjusts to life with a baby and returns to work with the support of her stay-at-home husband, Chris (Will Arnett). As if motherhood weren’t enough, as a talk-show executive producer, Reagan must also tend to the endless needs of her friend and boss Ava (Maya Rudolph), an ambitious but vulnerable talk-show host. Nick Cannon stars as Ava’s charismatic co-host “Calvin” and Jennifer Hall stars as Ava’s long-suffering assistant “Missy.” Matt Lauer guest stars.

Show Summary: From Emily Spivey (NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” NBC’s “Saturday Night Live”) and legendary Emmy Award-winning producer Lorne Michaels, comes “Up All Night,” a modern take on parenthood that shows the challenges of balancing a career, marriage and a new baby.

Christina Applegate (“Samantha Who?”) stars as Reagan, a successful public relations executive, and Will Arnett (“Arrested Development”) plays Chris, Reagan’s supportive, stay-at-home husband. The two have just become parents – a surprise that has set their lives on a new path as responsible adults — for the most part. Maya Rudolph (“Saturday Night Live,” “Bridesmaids”) stars as Ava, Reagan’s outlandish boss and best friend, whose whirlwind social escapades serve as constant reminders of Reagan’s former carefree life. James Pumphrey (“High Road”) portrays Brian, Reagan’s socially awkward hipster assistant.

“Up All Night” is a production of Universal Media Studios and Broadway Video. Spivey is the creator and serves as executive producer along with Michaels and Jon Pollack (NBC’s “30 Rock”).
