NBC has set its premiere dates for its new scripted drama series from creator Edward Bernero ("Criminal Minds") in June and alternative series The Winner Is…" and "Hollywood Game Night," hosted by Nick Lachey and Jane Lynch, respectively.

Sony Pictures TV's "Crossing Lines" debuts with a two-hour premiere on Sunday, June 23 at 9 p.m. before airing its regular time slot at 10 p.m. beginning June 30.

It explores cases from the International Criminal Court and the people who track down global criminals. It stars William Fichtner, Donald Sutherland, Marc Lavoine, Gabriella Pession, Tom Wlaschiha, Moon Dailly and Richard Flood.

Nick Lachey, who has hosted on previous seasons of "The Sing-Off," will be hosting a new musical game show. "The Winner Is…" pits six singers against each other who must not only sing well but resist cast prizes to leave the game. The ultimate winner receives a $1 million prize.

Produced by Talpa Media USA Inc. and Universal Television, the series will debut on Thursday, July 11 at 9 p.m. followed by "Hollywood Game Night" at 10 p.m.

On "Hollywood Game Night," host Jane Lynch ("Glee") brings together celebrities to play games – much like the American tradition but with A-List stars. Created by Sean Hayes, the series is produced by his company, Hazy Mills Productions with Mission Control Media and Universal Television.
