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.
Touch would have been cancelled in any event given its ratings this season.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

I like to see articles about TV networks with titles like this:

The CW Goes Big With Sci-Fi

The CW Stocks Up on Sci-Fi
the CW offers a sort of interstellar Romeo and Juliet meets District 9 tale in Oxygen, a new drama in which an alien boy finds love at a suburban high school. Friday Night Lights' Aimee Teegarden stars with CW vets Matt Lanter (90210) and Malese Jow (The Vampire Diaries).
this doesnt venture too far though from CW territory.

^Oxygen is also of note to SF fans in that it stars the voice of The Clone Wars' Anakin Skywalker, Matt Lanter. (Who's also both Harry Osborn and Flash Thompson in Ultimate Spider-Man, and was in several Heroes episodes as a character named Brody whom I don't remember at all.)

Brody was "Flying Boy" that spied on Claire from the treetops and became a very short time love interest, before she switched to Girls, I believe

IIRC, there was confirmation that the Room Mate had feelings for Claire and was interested in girls. As far as Claire's feelings go, I'm pretty sure there was a Conversation or a kiss or maybe just a hand holding scene, that definitely pointed towards it being mutual (Been too long since I've watched Heroes, and not likely to rewatch it, though S4, IMHO, was a step back towards the Quality of Entertainment S1 had, and a big improvement over S2 and S3. Though maybe that was Robert Kneffer as the Antagonist that made S4 better )

How long has it been since there was a straight historical show like that on an American network?

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

ABC has picked up Once Upon a Time in Wonderland and Resurrection (formerly called The Returned). That brings us to a total of 11 freshman one-hour SFF shows picked up for next season by the broadcast networks, which sets a new record, eclipsing the 10 freshman one-hour SFF shows that debuted in the 2011/2012 season. There's one more SFF show potentially still in contention for next season, namely NBC's Wonderland, which is being developed outside of the usual pilot season.

Who knows? I am hoping they have fun with it...it seems straight forward but an article I read seems to think it would benefit from the "Marie Antoinette" hook(? like the Dunst movie)... Adelaide Kane is gorgeous and I like a period piece...maybe a CW like Tudors?

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

NBC also has Dracula on its schedule for next season, which was developed outside the regular pilot season. That brings the total of freshman one-hour SFF shows on the broadcast networks to 12 for next season.

NBC is moving Revolution to Wednesdays at 8.00pm, while Grimm stays in its regular slot on Fridays at 9.00pm, with Dracula following it at 10.00pm (a timeslot it will yield to Crossbones at midseason). Believe will premiere as a midseason show on Sundays at 9.00pm.

Official descriptions for Almost Human and Sleepy Hollow

ALMOST HUMAN
From Emmy Award-winning executive producer J.J. Abrams (“Fringe,” “Lost,” the “Star Trek” and “Mission: Impossible” franchises) and creator/executive producer J.H. Wyman (“Fringe,” “The Mexican”), comes ALMOST HUMAN. Starring Karl Urban (“Star Trek”) and Michael Ealy (“Sleeper Cell,” “Common Law”), the new series is an action-packed police drama set 35 years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids. The year is 2048. Meet JOHN KENNEX (Urban), a cop who survived one of the most catastrophic attacks ever made against the police department. After waking up from a 17-month coma, he can’t remember much – except that his partner was killed; his girlfriend, ANNA MOORE (guest star Mekia Cox, “Crazy, Stupid, Love.,” “Undercovers”), left him after the attack; and he lost one of his legs and is now outfitted with a highly sophisticated synthetic appendage. Suffering from depression, mental atrophy, trauma-onset OCD, PTSD and the “psychological rejection of his synthetic body part,” John returns to work at the behest of longtime ally Captain SANDRA MALDONADO (Emmy Award nominee Lili Taylor, “Six Feet Under,” “Ransom”). By mandate, every cop must partner with a robot. And despite his passionate aversion to androids, John is paired up with a battle-ready MX-43. But he abruptly terminates his partnership after the robot discovers incriminating information about him. So technician RUDY LOM (Mackenzie Crook, “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise) introduces John to DORIAN (Ealy), a discontinued android with unexpected emotional responses. Although such responses were deemed flaws, it is in these “flaws” that John relates to Dorian most. After all, John is part-machine now, and Dorian is part-human. John and Dorian’s understanding of each other not only complements them, it connects them. As he adjusts to working with his new partner, John also must learn to get along with his new colleagues, including the eager and somewhat starstruck Detective VALERIE STAHL (Minka Kelly, “Friday Night Lights,” “(500) Days of Summer”) and the distrustful Detective RICHARD PAUL (Michael Irby, “Law Abiding Citizen,” “The Unit”), who does not welcome John back with open arms. ALMOST HUMAN will follow the week-to-week missions of John and Dorian, as they fight crime across this futuristic landscape, while the mysteries surrounding his attack and the larger mythology of this new world unfold. ALMOST HUMAN is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television. The series is created by J.H. Wyman, who wrote the pilot. The series is executive-produced by J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk and Wyman. Kathy Lingg (“Person of Interest,” “Revolution,” “Fringe”) and Reid Shane (“Fringe”) are co-executive producers. Brad Anderson (“Fringe,” “The Killing”) directed and served as co-executive producer on the pilot.
SLEEPY HOLLOW
What if you suddenly woke up from the throes of death 250 years in the future to find the world is on the brink of destruction, caused by unimaginable events, and you are humanity’s last hope? Welcome to SLEEPY HOLLOW, the thrilling new mystery-adventure drama from co-creators/executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (“Star Trek” and “Transformers” franchises, “Fringe”). In this modern-day retelling of Washington Irving’s classic, ICHABOD CRANE (Tom Mison, “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to unravel a mystery that dates all the way back to the founding fathers. Revived alongside Ichabod is the infamous Headless Horseman who is on a murderous rampage in present-day Sleepy Hollow. Bound to the Headless Horseman by a blood spell cast on the battlefield of the American Revolution, Ichabod quickly realizes that stopping Headless is just the beginning, as the resurrected rider is but the first of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. As this re-invented Ichabod finds himself in present-day Sleepy Hollow, he discovers a town and a world he no longer recognizes. All that is brutally familiar are Headless and Ichabod’s determination to annihilate this immortal being. It’s a mission he must complete quickly, as Headless already has viciously slain Sheriff AUGUST CORBIN (guest star Clancy Brown, “Cowboys & Aliens,” “Carnivale”). Grey served both as mentor and father figure to Detective ABBIE MILLS (Nicole Beharie, “Shame,” “American Violet”), a young cop whose own supernatural experiences help her form an unlikely bond with Ichabod. But Sleepy Hollow’s head of police, Captain FRANK IRVING (Orlando Jones, “The Chicago 8,” “Drumline”), isn’t buying any of this. In fact, the only person who is on Abbie’s side is Ichabod. His extensive first-hand knowledge of our secret American history, coupled with her superior profiling and modern threat assessment skills, will make them a formidable duo as they work together to triumph over evil. The complex pasts of Ichabod and Abbie, from Ichabod’s inclusion in the powerful and secretive Freemasons Society and the ghostly appearance of his late wife, KATRINA (Katia Winter, “Dexter”), to Abbie’s childhood visions, will help them solve the intricate puzzles of Sleepy Hollow in order to protect its future. As history repeats itself, the oddly-linked pair will draw on the real stories and hallowed secrets this nation was founded on in their quest to stop an increasingly vicious cycle of evil. SLEEPY HOLLOW is from K/O Paper Products in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series is co-created by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Phillip Iscove and Len Wiseman (“Hawaii Five-0,” “Underworld” and “Total Recall”). The series is executive-produced by Kurtzman, Orci, Wiseman and Heather Kadin. Iscove serves as supervising producer. Wiseman directed the pilot.
