Fox pilot - Broken Girl

With multiple networks interested, Fox has taken in Broken Girl, a drama project from writer John Scott Shepherd, 20th Century Fox and Prospect Park. It focuses on emotionally damaged Trish Derring who, after she loses the man she saw as her last hope for happiness, decides she has nothing left to live for only to discover she’s literally invincible. Blending elements of Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Unbreakable, Broken Girl follows an antiheroine who must live with a body that has become both her fortress and her cage.

Sounds like yet another post-Apocalypse filled with scruffily dressed angry people.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

CW developing "Wizard of Oz" project

The summer of Wizard Of Oz continues with another sale of a
high-profile Oz-themed drama project. I’ve learned that the CW is in
negotiations for Dorothy Must Die, a drama from the Heroes trio of
creator/exec producer Tim Kring and exec producers Adam Armus and Nora
Kay Foster. Written by Armus and Foster with Kring supervising, I hear
the project is based on the upcoming young adult novel Dorothy Must
Die by Danielle Paige. It is a revisionist take on the classic tale
set in present day, 80 years after Dorothy Gale supposedly came home.
In reality, the magically-ever-youthful Dorothy has stayed in Oz,
presiding over a now fascist fairyland with her perfectly manicured
iron fist and the help of her henchmen – the Scarecrow, the Tin Man,
and the Cowardly Lion. But when another young woman from Kansas is
swept up in a tornado and magically dropped into this war-torn Oz, our
hero discovers a revolutionary underground of witches and enchanted
beings only to learn that she is destined to lead their people in the
fight to reclaim Oz from a power-hungry Dorothy’s ruthless clutches.
An evil Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion? Ugh.

CBS Kurtzman/Orci apocalyptic drama

The auspices behind CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 reboot are reteaming
for a new drama series. The eye network has put in development
Salvation, a high-concept drama executive produced by Hawaii Five-0
developers/exec producers Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Peter Lenkov
and produced by CBS TV Studios. Written by up-and-coming feature
writer Matt Wheeler, the project is set in the months leading up to a
global, catastrophic event and follows a group of characters’ attempts
to deal with the impending destruction of the planet and ensure the
survival of humanity.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

Yet another revisionist classic is yet another example of creative bankruptcy, but a pre-Apocalypse drama sounds like it could be interesting.

I don't think evil Dorothy is all that unlikely? Afterall, look at the con Glinda and the Wizard pulled on Dorothy getting her to kill the Wicked Witch.

(Glinda to Wicked Witch of the West) "Oh, the shoes? They're on Dorothy's feet, and that's where they'll stay. And you better watch your step, or a house just might fall on you, too" So, she not only taunted the Wicked Witch about her sister's death at Dorothy's hands, she also taunted her about Dorothy stealing the shoes off her dead sister's still warm corpse. On top of all that, Glinda knew full well, all Dorothy had to do was click her heels together three times and chant "There's No Place Like Home", but, instead of telling Dorothy that, she sent her to The Wizard who set her on a path to be forced to kill The Wicked Witch. It amazes me how many people really buy into the lie that Glinda is so sweet and innocent, just because she's pretty and speaks with a melodic voice.

After being put through all that, and then Dorothy's return trips, it's no wonder Dorothy became evil and power hungry.
