No. of Season: 2

Despite having a passionate following, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist was canceled by NBC last June after just two seasons. Though the musical dramedy was a middling linear Live+Same Day ratings performer, the Austin Winsberg-created series had an outsized digital footprint, which made Peacock to consider it for a pickup. While the streamer ultimately opted not to proceed with a third season, it was announced this August that the Roku Channel was nearing a deal for a two-hour Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist holiday movie, which if successful, could lead to more episodes.

Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist stars Jane Levy as Zoey Clarke, a programmer who has been recently promoted to engineering manager at a San Francisco–based tech firm specializing in smart devices and apps. An earthquake occurs while she’s getting an MRI and a huge playlist of songs on file is downloaded into her brain. After the unusual event, Zoey suddenly starts to hear the innermost wants, thoughts, and desires of the people around her through popular songs.
