Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

Kind of a supernatural/Western/modern day series picked up to pilot at NBC:

Based on the Oni Press graphic novel, The Sixth Gun is the story of six mythical guns in the Old West. When the Sixth Gun, the most powerful and dangerous of the group, resurfaces in the hands of an innocent girl named Becky Montcrief, dark forces reawaken. Vile men thought long dead set their sights on retrieving the gun and killing Becky. Only Drake Sinclair, a self-serving gunfighter, stands in evil’s way.
I also noticed mention of The Strain at FX - can't recall if that one's been spotted before, but here's the description:

drama based on Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan's horror trilogy, about a vampiric virus that has infected New York and the battle of mammoth proportions that follows
So just an average day in the Big Apple.

EDIT: Two more genre pickups at FOX. I assume the second one is some kind of alt reality premise.

Described as a modern–day supernatural thriller based on The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow, it follows Ichabod Crane as he partners with Sleepy Hollow’s local female sheriff to solve the mysteries of a town ravaged by the battle between good and evil.

Based on the book by the same name, Delirium is about a young girl who falls in love in a society where love is seen as a defense.
