NBC will try out a comedy block on Sundays in the spring, with Season 2 of “The Carmichael Show” and new series “Crowded” joining the unscripted show “Little Big Shots” in March.

All three of those shows, along with new drama “Heartbeat,” will also get previews following Tuesday editions “The Voice” before their time-period premieres. (That in turn probably saves the network a few weeks of “Chicago Fire” repeats.) NBC has also scheduled “Game of Silence” for Thursday nights after “Shades of Blue” ends its run.

“Dateline” will at 7 p.m. ET/PT Sunday in the spring. NBC hasn’t set anything for 10 p.m. yet.

Here’s the rundown of previews and premieres (all times ET/PT).

“Little Big Shots”: 30-minute preview at 10 p.m Tuesday, March 8 after “The Voice”; time-period premiere at 8 p.m. Sunday, March 13.

“The Carmichael Show”: Preview at 10:30 p.m. March 8;time-period premiere at 9 p.m. Sunday, March 13 with back-to-back episodes.

“Crowded”: Preview at 10 p.m. Tuesday, March 15 after “The Voice” (two episodes); time-period premiere at 9:30 p.m. Sunday, March 20.

“Heartbeat”: Preview at 10 p.m. Tuesday, March 22 after “The Voice”; time-period premiere at 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 23.

“Game of Silence”: Premieres at 10 p.m. Thursday, April 7.
