NEW YORK (NBC) - After finding ratings success with its series "Heroes", NBC's embracing even more heroic series as it unveils its new fall programming lineup.

Advertisers got a sneak peak at the network's new shows Monday in New York.

A new and improved "Bionic Woman" leads the way for NBC's new fall lineup.  British actress Michelle Ryan stars in a darker, edgier remake of the 70's hit.

"What they want to do is make it very real so that Jamie Sommers is the girl next door," Ryan said.

NBC has more heroes on tap for fall, including "Journeyman.

Kevin McKidd plays a newspaper reporter who inexplicably begins to travel back in time, changing people's lives, including his own.

A computer geek swaps his pocket protector for a bulletproof vest in "Chuck".

Zachary Levi stars as a guy who accidentally downloads a server full of government secrets into his brain making him both a valuable agent and a marked man.

Damien Lewis stars as a detective back on the beat after prison in the drama, "Life."  He's also back with $50 million in the bank, because it was a wrongful conviction.

Brooke Shields tries to balance a high-powered career and a high-powered family in "Lipstick Jungle."

"It's truly about having it all and trying to balance it all," Shields said.

Kim Raver and Lindsay Price also star in this dramedy from the creator of "Sex and the City."
"Lipstick Jungle" will air on Sundays after the end of the NFL season.

NBC also announced it's renewing three series that had been in danger of cancellation. "Scrubs" and "Friday Night Lights" will return, as will "Law and Order" for its 18th season.

However, "Crossing Jordan" was canceled, as was "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip".

"Law and Order: Criminal Intent" will move to the USA cable network.
