Beauty and the Beast's renewal is pretty shocking to me. They put the show on hiatus and are finishing off season 2 in June. It looked like a goner for sure. It must do well overseas .

Off-platform what now? What is "monetizing" B&tB beyond the show itself?
I was referring to the revenue streams beyond the license fee the CW pays, i.e. foreign sales, revenue from online streaming, DVD and Blu-ray sales.

I am surprised because of how they handled it too. I am glad it will continue on. Hopefully the writing will get better, S2 has been pretty bad at times.

Yeah, season 2 of BatB has been wildly uneven. And Vincent spent most of the season so far being an asshole.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

As expected, ABC has renewed Once Upon a Time and Resurrection for fourth and second seasons respectively. ABC has also ordered The Whispers to series (formerly titled The Visitors), as well as the half-hour fairy tale musical comedy Galavant.

Edit to add: ABC has renewed Agents of SHIELD for a second season and ordered Agent Carter to series.

And another edit: ABC has ordered Forever to series.

Here are the descriptions for ABC's new SF/F shows:

Agent Carter: Marvel’s Agent Carter,” starring “Captain America’s” Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life – Steve Rogers. Inspired by the feature films “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” along with the short “Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.” “Marvel’s Agent Carter” stars Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter. Executive producers are Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters, Steve McFeely & Christopher Marcus, and Jeph Loeb.
Forever: Doctor Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd), New York City’s star medical examiner, has a secret. He doesn’t just study the dead to solve criminal cases, he does it to solve the mystery that has eluded him for 200 years—the answer to his own inexplicable immortality. This long life has given Henry remarkable observation skills which impresses his new partner Detective Jo Martinez (Alana De La Garza). Each week, a new case and their budding friendship will reveal layers of Henry’s long and colorful past. Only his best friend and confidant, Abe (Judd Hirsch) knows Henry’s secret.
Galavant (Comedy)
EP: Dan Fogelman (The Neighbors)
CAST: Joshua Sasse (Rogue), Vinnie Jones (Elementary), Karen David, Mallory Jansen, Luke Youngblood (Community), guest star Timothy Omundson (Psych)
A musical fairy tale that centers on handsome Prince Galavant and his quest for revenge over the king who stole his one true love.
The Whispers (Drama)
EPs: Steven Spielberg, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Dawn Olmstead
CAST: Lily Rabe, Barry Sloane, Milo Ventimiglia, Derek Webster, Brianna Brown, Catalina Denis, Kylie Rogers, Kyle Harrison Breitkopf
A drama about an alien invasion, in which earth’s enemies possess children’s bodies to take down humanity.

So will Howard Stark be a regular in Agent Carter, or just an occasional guest?

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

It's very interesting that it's a period piece. I'll give it a try on that basis alone. I wonder if they'll somehow tie Carter and SHIELD together-- she has an adventure one week and the repercussions are felt seventy years later in SHIELD.

Colony is set in the very near future 2015
That's funny. By the time the show is developed and aired, it will be the present-- or possibly even the past.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

Some sites are saying NBC has cancelled Revolution. Others say a final decision hasn't been made yet.

Edit to add: now it's official. Revolution has been cancelled.

Can't say I'm sorry to see it go. The only reason I watch it is because my wife is still interested. I'm kinda relieved actually.

NBC has cancelled Believe. No surprise there.

Somewhat bummed about Revolution- it was ASB crazy, but I enjoyed some of the characters.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

CBS has ordered Scorpion to series, which may or may not end up dipping into SF/F territory:

Scorpion: An eccentric genius and his international network of super-geniuses form the last line of defense against the complex threats of the modern age. Cast: Robert Patrick (Agent Cabe Gallo); Eddie Kaye Thomas (Toby); Katharine McPhee (Paige).
