Well said, Sindatur. Mucho gracias, EIG.

Tin Man seems like it was inspired by the Adam Link stories, and sounds like it could be interesting.

Sounds like Zoo is to Birds what Kamandi was to Planet of the Apes.

Why would anyone admit to writing those Transformers movies?

Relativity Teams With Georgeville & Bradley Cooper For Series Based On Film ‘Limitless’

Relativity Television has partnered with Georgeville Television and actor/producer Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook) for Limitless, a scripted TV series based on Relativity’s hit 2011 movie starring and executive produced by Cooper.

The Limitless feature, which starred Cooper, Robert De Niro and Abbie Cornish, is a paranoia-fueled action thriller about an unsuccessful writer whose life is transformed by a top-secret “smart drug” that allows him to use 100% of his brain and become a perfect version of himself. His enhanced abilities soon attract shadowy forces that threaten his new life

ABC Gives Cast- Contingent Pilot Order To Paranormal Comedy

The project, based on an Australian format, was developed at ABC last season when it had a put pilot commitment. Strange Calls centers on good-hearted, bumbling Boston cop Toby Banks, who is exiled to night duty on Nantucket island, where strange, unexplainable occurrences become the norm nine months out of the year. Working out of a creaky lighthouse on the outskirts of town, he is teamed with Gregor, the eccentric lighthouse keeper and local paranormal authority. The two make an unlikely crimefighting duo dealing with the “strange calls” that come into the station at night.

An old lighthouse in Nantucket? So far, so good.

"Eureka" creator developing NBC supernatural drama

The network is developing Strange Fiction, a drama from the creator of
Eureka, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Strange Fiction, which stems from a spec script, blends humor, heart
and horror and centers on a young book editor drawn into the world of
the supernatural by a reclusive and quite possibly insane paranormal
investigator.

Sounds like abc and nbc are both producing the same show.

Strange Calls and Strange Fiction will depend on Strange Execution...

Hardly unique, but who knows?

Strange Fiction is a little higher on my list due to the connection to Eureka, one of my favorite shows.

CW Developing Mars Colony Drama

The 400-year-old Roanoke Colony mystery is getting a galactic twist with Colony, a drama project at The CW from CBS TV Studios and the studio-based Kennedy/Marshall Co. Written by Ian Goldberg (Once Upon A Time), Colony is a thriller about a group of explorers sent to colonize Mars, willing to leave their lives behind to brave the dangers of another planet, and the terrifying reality they discover. It is inspired by the story of The Lost Colony, the 16th century British settlement on Roanoke Island, off the coast of North Carolina, whose inhabitants vanished without a trace, sparking a slew of theories about their fate.

Let's hope it'll work out this time. Would be nice to see a decent story set on Mars again.
