The House on the Hill returns to NBC’s lineup for its sixth season on Monday, April 15, with a two-hour premiere.
The drama will air at 8 p.m.
ET on the network, and the season premiere will be broadcast at 10 p.p.m., according to the network.
The new season will be based on the novel series by Michelle Alexander and Alex Pareene, and will be the first of four to air in the new format.
The series will be produced by Pirelli, who is also behind the House on Capitol Hill and The House, and features a cast of House Democrats, including former Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), former Rep, Jan Schakowsky (D) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D).
The show will air on NBC with a one-hour prequel, and a two hour episode, The Plot to Get Away With Murder, will also be featured on the series.
Alexander’s and Pareena’s novel, The House That Never Was, was adapted into a television movie that debuted in January 2018.
Pirelli said that the show will take place in Washington, D.C., where the series centers on a series of plots that take place across the U.S.
A few of the characters will have a connection to past political campaigns, including a plot involving former Rep Tom Perez (D), who was the Democratic National Committee chairman during the 2016 presidential race.
Ahead of the first episode of the new series, Alexander told reporters that the idea of the show came from her mother.
Pareene said that Alexander’s mother is not familiar with the show, and that he was initially worried about how the book would be received in the U, especially since he was a “political outsider” at the time.
Pareen said that he hopes that viewers will “understand the politics of the book, not just the politics that are going on.”
