Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

HuffPo review of NBC pilots.

NBC is the most interesting network because its ongoing failure opens up possibilities. Plus, its few successes this year (Grimm and Smash) were definitely not safe choices compared with the cop-and-lawyer-show approach, which didn't work for them.) I find NBC the most fascinating network to follow every year, and it looks like this year is no exception.

I've been looking forward to The Frontier as a straight-ahead Western. The saga of people trying to survive the arduous overland journey should be drama enough, especially if the characters are well chosen. It sounds like it could have a supernatural element - as long as it's not heavy handed, it could work.

The reviewer doesn't give any predictions for pickups, but says "their slate this year is significantly stronger than last year's candidates were." That's a relief! No more Playboy Clubs, please.
