^Also because The Clone Wars is probably moving to Disney XD, whereas Warner Bros. retains the LEGO rights, so LEGO Star Wars is probably the only incarnation of Star Wars that they'll be able to keep on Cartoon Network.
Okay that does make sense. I wasn't aware there was any way The Cartoon Network could hang onto Star Wars going forward.

EDIT: buncha more pickups, from ABC. I'm making the executive decision that any series based on a theme park ride is automatically genre:

...themed Big Thunder Mountain ride is set in a mining town amid the gold rush in the American Southwest that gets hit by a natural disaster. The TV project centers on a brilliant, late 19th century New York doctor. He and his family are given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to relocate to a frontier mining town run by a powerful, but mysterious tycoon but quickly realize that not everything in Big Thunder is as it seems.


The Matt Lopez-penned Gothica, co-produced by the Mark Gordon Co., is described as a sexy gothic soap set in present day that weaves together a mythology that incorporates the legends of Dracula, Jekyll and Hyde, Frankenstein and Dorian Gray among others. The concept seems similar to ABC’s fairytale drama Once Upon A Time but with characters from classic horror literature. Meanwhile, Penny Dreadful, Showtime’s straight-to-series drama from John Logan and Sam Mendes, features some of the same characters as Gothica – including Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, Dorian Gray and Dracula – but is set in Victorian London.
