    Well, not too surprising. It would've been tricky for Fuller to do both Mockingbird Lane and Hannibal at the same time, and the latter is already going into production.

    Eh, I don't know about the odds of Hannibal's survival. There are too many serial killer shows in development and broadcast's hands will be tied, gore-wise. But there's room for at least one more visually sumptuous fantasy.

    Did they film enough pilot material to be leaked online someday?

    The article makes it sound like they finished the pilot.

    That's an uber-CBS premise if ever I heard one. :D

    Cool. I hope it's successful, despite the recycling; with Fuller in charge, it's bound to be good.

    I'll bet Fuller's version would be unrecognizable in relation to the original anyway. And NBC wouldn't care about reaching the fans of the original, because they're too old. The target demo is people born in 1963 or younger, and the show went off the air in 1966.

    Here's something verrrry intriguing...JMS and the Wachowskis planning a show called Sens8. No further info. Speculate away!

    Given the talent involved, I choose to assume it's a sci-fi series about people who are unbelievably talky and unbearably smug, brought to you by some of the genre's hottest talents circa thirteen years ago.

    But seriously, that could be interesting. Just tell me it's not some kind of cop show and may actually watch it.

    In the fine tradition of punny titles, it's going to be about future enhanced humans for whom the sixth sense (mind reading) is old hat, everybody does that. Senses 7 and 8, TBD. Remote viewing and precognition?

    New series from Chris Carter, The After.

    Yes, it sounds exactly like The Event, but with a description that vague, it could be like anything.

    Well, it is Chris Carter so no matter what it's actually about it already has potential to be good.

    ^^ Yeah, right. They're just getting rid of them to have some peace and quiet. :rommie:

    So it's the colonization of Australia, but with teenagers. Seems an odd strategy. If it were just about getting rid of some undesirables, that would be understandable, but if the survival of the whole species is at stake, shouldn't it be entrusted to responsible adults?

    You know, Logan's Run would be perfect for the CW, especially if you kept the age cutoff at 21 years, as in the original novel . . . .

    Since this is the CW, the juvenile delinquents will be Jets-vs-Sharks delinquent, not Bloods-vs-Crips. They will all be very pretty and pouty, angsty and tragic. I'd rather see the damn space colony and what the grownups are dong there!
