Okay. Almost Human is the Abrams android-cop show, which has possibilities. Sleepy Hollow is kind of a weird high concept, Ichabod Crane coming to the modern era to save the world (if you're going to bring a Washington Irving character forward in time, shouldn't it be Rip Van Winkle?). Delirium was something about a future where love could be surgically eradicated or something -- didn't sound too interesting.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

if I hadn't seen the names of those behind sleepy hollow and the futuristic buddy cop show I'd be optimistic about them but seeing these are the same mediocre pool of writing talent behind Fringe, the star trek film franchise etc my optimism has faded. The last thing I want is some convoluted mythology, angst ridden, fast paced mess.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

NBC has picked up Believe. Here's the logline: "Drama about a girl in possession of a great gift/powers - which will come into their own in seven years - and the man who is sprung from prison to protect her from those trying to hunt her down."

Edit to add: simultaneous post!

Gotta make a mental note to not watch this until they've actually reached season 7.

I will sell my house and give them every penny I possess if they remake "A Man For Emily". But they have to use the original script and costume designs.

Or rather, from Abrams and Alfonso Cuarón. Bad Robot seems to produce half the shows on TV these days, but Abrams himself hasn't been the solo creator or showrunner of a series since Alias. So it's always good to note who his collaborators on a given project are, since they're likely to be the ones more directly involved with developing and running the show.

As expected, Agents of SHIELD has been picked up by ABC. Also as expected, Fox has cancelled Touch.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

the 100 and oxygen may have potential. I'll have to check them out. Tomorrow people. Uh no,, I'm tired of shows about people with special abilities coming off Heroes and no ordinary family and touch etc. Plus Julie plec is a one woman wrecking ball when it comes to shows,,,the ruination of Kyle xy and the destruction of the once interesting vampire diaries over the past two seasons. She writes like a teenage girl and that isn't a compliment.

I know it's not sci-fi or fantasy but Fox has also announced they're bring 24 back as a limited series. I'm wondering if there what the relationship is between the cancellation of Touch and 24's return. I'm thinking there must be one, because I'm assuming they wouldn't have expected Sutherland to be able to headline two shows in one season.
