Re: TV pilot season begins...

right I lost my first post the other today so here is a quick sum up

the CW

I think Melrose Place is a gimmie, im sure a couple of others will get pick up as well, but im too old & too male for the network so dont expect me to act like I care.

FOX

Eva Adams, no no a million times no, that goes for you to Ab Fab but I dont think Ab Fab will get past the pilot.

Human Target & Masterwork, The Station all interest me

CBS

before we continue to the people who dont me

Hi my name is wamdue im a CBS cop show aholic

I will start with Eastmans, sound like maybe a Numb3rs show but with Doctors rather than cops.

House Rules one in a line of political dramas across the networks this pilot season, im not convinced by any of them. NBC might as well just kick start The West Wing again.

Miami Trauma, so what Nip/Tuck for network TV, whilst I dont think its going to be good, its worth the first season just for the CSI Miami crossver.

various prosecutor shows, you just axed Shark, you arnt getting another one so soon.

Washington Field, and now the good stuff, just inject it straight into my vains.

and the comedys

The Karenskys is the only one that stands out.

however Tick Tock

Thirtysomething single mother focuses her attention on finding true love
if I read that as an idea for a sitcom one more time I will be held responsible for my actions.

NBC & ABC in the next post

Re: TV pilot season begins...

NBC

Day One, lord help me if this is a rip off of BBC series Survivors, we only just finished remaking it ourselves.

Legally Mad, sounds like every other David E Kelley legal drama.

Lost & Found, what you couldnt just put Starbuck on Law & Order?

Mercy & Trauma, hey NBC remeber that medical show you have, its what called, two letters ER.

and the comedy, nothing too original, I noticed yet anther cop comedy, we will probaly see one of those somewhere Fall 2009

& finally ABC

Empire State, sounds alot like Ugly Betty.

Limelight

Students and faculty at a New York performing arts school
ive heard it all before, ive heard if before, Fame something its gonna something, you get where im going with this.

See Cate Run, the oestrogen network at its best, for all those women who never voted for Obama out of blind faith to there gender, do they not remeber Commander in Chief

Detective uses brilliant 11-year-old brother to solve crimes
gees whats next CSI: Pre School?

Blue-collar kid gets first job at powerful L.A. law firm
Ugly Betty isnt exactly the best show on the network you know.

The Unknown, interesting idea, but im not seeing it.

Cougar Town, come back Eva Adams you are not the worst new pilot out there.

The Law, more copy comedy.

Let it Go, ill be more than happy to.

The New 20, look its a mircale Til Death is still on Fox, dont push it.

No Heroics, hell ABC ITV 2 called it wants it show back.

Pryors, always willing to give a new Grammar project a fair shot.

Pulling, ABC, you are going to need a second line, BBC 3 is calling, it also wants it show back.

I've pitched "Young Law, Young Order" to the CW. Crime at Wolf High in New York is on the rise, so hot young Principal Adam Schiff gets hot young class president Lenny Briscoe and hot young biker rebel Jack McCoy to team up and fight back. Occasionally they're aided by grade schoolers Mike Logan and Ed Green. But for the most part their team consists of hot young history teacher Arthur Branch, hot young counselor Nora Lewin and hot young school doctor Elizabeth Rodgers.

They should air No Heroics opposite of Heroes.
I hope they do, Heroes needs all the help it can get! No Heroics sounds like one of those DOA concepts that make you scratch your head and wonder how it got past the idea stage. Or something that might be better off on basic cable, where a tiny cult following is an acceptable viewership level.
I thought you were interested in No Heroics? Or did that clip kill your interest?
I just listed every sci fi or fantasy show! I check em all out, even when I'm pretty sure I'll hate em...Dollhouse, Bionic Woman, Moonlight, etc...

And considering how godawful the non sf/f stuff sounds, I can't afford to be picky.

Me too, I got here too late.

What's happened to Virtuality? Wasn't that supposed to be on Fox?
I wouldn't hold out too many hopes for that one making it out of development hell. At this point, I'm hoping cable will have some decent options because it looks like the nets are going to be near-total loss. I remember something about:

-HBO doing a Martin Scorcese-directed series about the early days of Atlantic City.

-A series about a magician in the 1920s.

Because it way, way violates our PG-13 rules. Just be glad I caught it before Bonz came across it.
How, there was no nudity. Hell I've seen worse on prime time tv...

Re: TV pilot season begins...

Weird little news tidbit - Steve McQueen's grandson and namesake lands lead in vampire show! Well, grandad did get his start with a B movie about a giant blob...

"Vampire Diaries," from "Scream" and "Dawson's Creek" mastermind Kevin Williamson, is based on Alloy's series of books. It centers on Elena, a tragic young heroine who is the object of passion for two vampire brothers -- one good, one evil -- who are at war for her soul and for the souls of her friends, family and other residents of the small town in which she resides.
Wow. That's as CW as it gets.

Re: TV pilot season begins...

My kid has been nagging me for months now about when there is ever going to be a new season of No Heroics. Some how I think that the yanks are going to tame the hell out of the original English scripts.

Re: TV pilot season begins...

I haven't heard anything about whether it's been commssioned for a second series or not, but the DVDs are listed as "The First Series" so that could be a sign they're going to renew it.

Well, the guy who plays Time Bomb is also in Moving Wallpaper which is airing right about now, so they'd hardly want to saturate us with his coolness?

Moving Wallpaper started last night. I thought it was a good start to the new series.

Re: TV pilot season begins...

Premium cable continues to be the mainstay for historical fiction: HBO Tackles the Borgias.

I'm glad to see a not-overexposed period of history as a topic for a series. Can't say the Borgias particularly interest me, though.

The intent is to make "Borgias" an ongoing series that will track the Borgia family's amoral escapades in Spain and Rome during the height of the Renaissance
Oh who knows, if they cast some fun folks, I might just tune in. Okay what good could-pass-for-Italian actors are there? This sounds just about perfect for Angelica Huston. And when Ian McShane's Kings flops hard, they can snap him up, too. Life on Mars won't get another season, so that frees up Harvey Keitel. Talk about an actor who was born to play a Borgia. And all those Sopranos vets. And Zeljko Ivanek, currently being wasted on Heroes.
