NBC at the Upfronts: Heroes spinoff 

"The Upfronts" are when the TV networks unveil their fall schedules. NBC kicked things off today, with the other networks to follow suit each day this week. Law & Order was renewed, Studio 60 was cancelled, and a few new series were announced.

But the only item of particular interest to me is the announcement of a Heroes spinoff. I have a weird feeling about this. From CNN's story:
To stretch the normal 22-episode season of "Heroes," which faltered after its long hiatus this year, NBC will add "Heroes: Origins." The spinoff will introduce a new character each week, and viewers will select which one stays for the following season. The two series will have 30 new episodes combined.
Huh? A bit short on details and logistics. Guess we'll have to stay tuned.
