This digital content will be promoted across the NBC’s bevy of networks and will air initially on digital platforms including channel websites, Hulu, and video-on-demand.

It will include a series about the mega fans who wait in the Saturday Night Live standby line, Saturday Night Line.

Heroes Quotes

Where does it come from, this quest? This need to solve life's mysteries, when the simplest of questions can never be answered. Why are we here? What is the soul? Why do we dream? Perhaps we'd be better off not looking at all. Not doubting, not yearning. That's not human nature. Not the human heart. That is not why we are here.

Ted, you're radioactive by nature!
