Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

The Leftovers gets order at HBO.

Damon Lindelof’s first series project since Lost, drama The Leftovers based on Tom Perrotta’s 2011 book, has received a pilot order at HBO where it had been in development since last summer.

...

The Leftovers, produced by WBTV, takes place after the Rapture happens but not quite like it’s supposed to. It is the story of the people who didn’t make the cut… and a world that will never be the same.
Sounds fun. HBO pilots have a better track record of going to series vs. the carnage that takes place on broadcast.

EDIT: here's a pilot that just got worth checking out. Mike from Breaking Bad joins Bloodline.

Jonathan Banks has been cast in the NBC drama pilot Bloodline, written by David Graziano and directed by Peter Berg. It is about Bird, an orphaned young girl caught in the struggle between two warring families of mercenaries and killers. Mentored by a Chinese man, Bird has to accept the quest to find and defeat her mother in mortal combat if she is to ever lead a normal life. Banks will play Leo, Bird’s maternal grandfather who decides to abandon her as an infant. A long descendant of Greek hitmen, he owns a hitman company full of long-lost relatives.
