NEW YORK, NY (WAVE) - NBC will make some bold moves this fall after a successful season in which the peacock network is poised to finish in first place among young adult viewers for the first time in a decade.

Network honchos announced on Sunday in New York that a dozen new series will join the NBC lineup this fall, including dramas starring former Will and Grace star Debra Messing and Grey's Anatomy alum Katherine Heigl. The 2014-15 season will also include a pair of Will Ferrell-produced comedies.

NBC chose to cancel Dracula, Community, Revolution, Growing Up Fisher, Believe, Crisis, Ironside, The Michael J. Fox Show, Sean Saves the World and Welcome to the Family.

A Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary special will air on February 15, 2015.
