Pilot Show Update - ABC and CBS

Postby DarkUFO on Fri May 13, 2011 10:58 am

Thanks to Esteban for the heads up.

From Deadline....

Assured to get series orders are early frontrunners GOOD CHRISTIAN BITCHES and CHARLIE'S ANGELS, along with the modern fairy tale ONCE UPON A TIME. Shonda Rhimes' PR drama SCANDAL looks solid, with one or both of PAN AM and procedural IDENTITY also expected to get a green light. Thriller THE RIVER is rumored for an order, though it's unclear if it will be a regular or limited-series one. Other possibilities on the drama side include the Hamptons-set REVENGE, which has been gathering momentum, and Marc Cherry's HALLELUJAH, possibly for midseason with some retooling, while 1840s detective show POE has been fading.

On the comedy side, the TIM ALLEN pilot, APT. 23 and SUBURGATORY are considered a go, with SMOTHERED, WORK IT and BAD MOM as possibilities.

With CBS' most guarded secret -- who will replace Charlie Sheen -- out, a lot of the intrigue surrounding CBS' presentation next week is gone. Luckily, we still have series pickups and schedule to try to figure out. On the drama side, the rise of the J.J. Abrams/Jonah Nolan crime drama PERSON OF INTEREST remains in what is considered a frontrunner status. Ensemble cop drama ROOKIES and procedural THE REMEMBERER also appear strong. PI show HAIL MARY, starring Mini Driver, is still a real possibility, with the Sarah Michelle Gellar Lottie and Lisa-style mystery RINGER a dark horse. Meanwhile, early frontrunner SUSANNAH GRANT has been losing momentum.

On the comedy side, with Michael Patrick King available after NBC passes on A Mann's World, his hot comedy pilot with Whitney Cummings TWO BROKE GIRL, which had faced uncertainty after NBC picked up Cummings' comedy pilot, should be able to return to frontrunner status alongside HOW TO BE A GENTLEMAN.

And at CW, THE SECRET CIRCLE and HART OF DIXIE continue to be the clear frontrunners.
