New and veteran NBC dramas and a comedy produced by Jerry Seinfeld will take over the bulk of the prime-time slots soon to be vacated by Jay Leno.

NBC announced Thursday that the freshman drama "Parenthood" and the relocated "Law & Order" and "Law & Order: Special Victim Units" will fill three slots. Another will go to the comedy panel series "The Marriage Ref" from Seinfeld.

(Msnbc.com is a joint venture of Microsoft and NBC.)

"Dateline NBC" will fill another 10 p.m. EST slot.

The new lineup will debut after NBC's coverage of the Winter Olympics from Feb. 12-28.

Yet to be resolved is NBC's effort to make way for Leno to return to late-night by bumping Conan O'Brien's and "Tonight" to midnight, a plan O'Brien has rejected.
