Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

And The Thread bobs to the top...maybe we should have the mods change the title to 2013?

Bloodline gets pilot order at NBC.

Bloodline, which reflects Graziano’s love of pulp, graphic novels and ancient mythology, is a contemporary pulp action thriller in the vein of Kill Bill. Set against the backdrop of modern suburbia, it follows the story of an orphaned young girl, Bird Benson, who, due to an accident of birth, is caught in the epic struggle between two warring families of mercenaries and killers. Mentored by a mysterious Chinese man, Bird must accept the quest to find and defeat her mother in mortal combat if she is ever to lead a normal life.
Wayward Pines miniseries in contention at FOX.

Based on the best-selling novel Pines by Blake Crouch, Wayward Pines is an intense, mind-bending thriller evocative of the classic cult hit Twin Peaks. Secret Service agent Ethan Burke arrives in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, ID, on a mission to find two missing federal agents. But instead of answers, Ethan’s investigation only turns up more questions. What’s wrong with Wayward Pines? Each step closer to the truth takes Ethan further from the life he knew, from the husband and father he was, until he must face the terrifying reality that he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive.
However if FOX can only do one miniseries in 2014, I'm rooting for Blood Brothers, a Civil War epic that sounds like a remake of North & South and despite the title, apparently involves no vampires. And my hunch is, that topic would do better for FOX. The market for supernatural horror is getting pretty glutted.
