Re: CW Looking For "The Right Hero"?

Here is a full article on what Mark Pedowitz has planned for The CW as a whole; http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/show...e-network.html

[edit] Another with more of the same; http://www.aoltv.com/2011/08/04/tca-...utive-session/

About 'Ringer'
All this is on top of the highly anticipated return of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” queen Gellar in the network’s new thriller “Ringer,” inherited from CBS, which did not pick it up. And he said the show would not suffer “one bit” from the different budget of a smaller network.
Re-makes & superheroes
But with a new president -- Pedowitz , a former ABC exec, replaced Dawn Ostroff earlier this year -- comes new possibilities. Pedowitz said he was a fan of remakes, citing “90210” as success, and said plans for a new superhero to charm audiences in a “Smallville”-less world was still to come. Ostroff had first hinted at last year’s TCA press tour that the network was looking to other DC superheroes to fill the void.

“We’re looking next year to do superheroes,” he said. “If the right superheroes comes to be.”
Bringing back comedies
Pedowitz said he was open to bringing the laughs back to the CW “if it’s the right thing.”
...
"We'll move very slowly," he said. "We'll do it very selectively."
You should read the whole thing.
