It's "upfront" week. New on NBC this fall:

Rewritten from NBC:

NBC on Monday announced new dramas "Journeyman," a romantic-mystery from the producers of "The West Wing," about a newspaper reporter (Kevin McKidd, "Rome") who inexplicably begins to travel through time and alter people's lives; and "Chuck," a comedic spy show about a computer geek who is thrown into a new career as a government agent after spy secrets are embedded into his brain.
Also new this fall is the drama "Bionic Woman," a re-do of the old series starring Michelle Ryan as a young woman strangely empowered after a car crash.
"Life" features a police detective (Damian Lewis) who's given a second chance on the force after serving years in prison for a crime he didn't commit.
The new dramedy "Lipstick Jungle" will debut in January 2008 on Sundays with Brooke Shields, Kim Raver, and Lindsay Price.
Comedy offerings include "The IT Crowd," based on a British series about misunderstood techies, and due midseason.
The network also ordered 30 half-hours of the hit series "The Office," including five hour-long episodes, and also has increased the season order for "My Name Is Earl" to 25 episodes.
