US network NBC has added more series to its new line-up including a drama from Law & Order’s Dick Wolf and a comedy produced by Jimmy Fallon.

Separately, the station is bringing back Law & Order: SVU for a 14th season.

The latest comedy to be added to its schedule is Guys with Kids, produced by late night comedian Fallon. The multicamera show, which is produced by Universal Television, follows three guys in their thirties who are new to parenthood.
