In response to Reply # 0


          

it's basically 'Rescue Me' with cops (read: FX lite) and perhaps a little more emphasis on the job (no pun intended)

i stayed on Rescue Me and half of our department went and did Fort Pit. Apparently there is buzz about it but i'm not sure why yet or where it is coming from. Not that the show is bad (i haven't seen it but there was word of buzz before the show was even done shooting

it'd be nice to have another few months of work

Is that one archived? I would be interested in seeing which shows survived that we thought wouldn't and vice versa.

EDIT: I think that other post was actually greenlit shows with episode orders rather than pilot orders.

and jesus, who decided that since Greys took the medical quota that Cop shows were what's needed? i think i saw atleast 20 new police dramas, including an LL Cool J jawn. seriously, who's greenlighting this shit.

i seriously read most of the "comedy" pilots as if Simpsons style Ron Howard was pitching them to Brian Grazer lol.

29. "Nikki Finke Handicaps the Pilots' Pickup Chances So Far (LONG swipe)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

from Deadline Hollywood Daily:

>Primetime Pilot Panic: Hot Handicapping

This is what I'm told by sources is the current state of primetime pilot possibilities. Stay tuned for more updates:

ABC
Hearing they will pick up 4 to 6 projects.

HOT:
1. PRIVATE PRACTICE (Grey’s Anatomy Spinoff) by Shonda Rhimes (ABC TV Studios): This will definitely be on the air.

2. DIRTY, SEXY, MONEY by Craig Wright (ABC TV Studios/Berlanti): This show tested very well. The stars were easily recognizable for the audience.

3. PUSHING DAISIES by Bryan Fuller (WBTV): ABC is very high on this and it has gone over extremely well. Word is show being given the right to make offers to writers.

4. PERFECT GENTLEMEN by Jon Feldman (WBTV): The pilot is not in the best of shape, but it tested really well, with audiences really liking the men. Hearing this is a McPherson favorite. Word is show being given the right to make offers to writers.

5. MARLOWE by Pruss & Wolper (ABC TV Studios): Came in very strong and ABC really likes this project. It didn’t test great, but Jason O’Mara is supposed to be great. They have ordered 2 more scripts.


CLOSE TO HOT:
1. FOOTBALL WIVES by Marco Pennette (ABC TV Studios/Brancato-Salke): Hearing mixed reports. This tested very well with women and only so so for the men. There could be some more work done on this pilot. Wouldn’t be surprised to see it mid-season.

2. CASHMERE MAFIA by Kevin Wade (Sony/Darren Star): Did not come off as well as they hope (They did a day of re-shoots), but no one is counting it out. It tested so-so, with the characters being the focal point of what people liked.

3. ELI STONE by Greg Berlanti & Marc Guggenheim (ABC TV Studios/Berlanti): This can never be counted out. Hearing the testing results were mixed and that it viewed that way as well.


WARM:
1. SUSPECT by Ed Zuckerman (Sony/25c): Not hearing a lot about this project, heard that it came in looking great.

2. JUDY’S GOT A GUN by Robert & Michelle King (ABC TV Studios): Came in better than they thought, but didn’t test well at all.

3. WOMEN’S MURDER CLUB by Craft & Fain (20th): This project must have something good in it, because they did a day of re-shoots. They will view this week.


COLD:
1. MR. & MRS. SMITH by Simon Kinberg (Regency/Dutch Oven): Hearing this did not turn out well or screen well at all.

2. UNTITLED RINA MIMOUN (WBTV): Heard this pilot did not come in strong and is not getting any sort of buzz.


CBS
Hearing they will pick up 3 or 4 pilots and, as expected, it's very quiet over there.

HOT:
1. LOS DUQUES by Cynthia Cidre (CBS Paramount/ABC TV Studios): Hear that they are in love with this pilot and that it looks amazing. Jimmy Smits and cast are great.

2. BABYLON FIELDS by Atkinson & Cuesta (20th): Very happy with this pilot. Was in competition with Twilight but this project came in much much better.

3. THE MAN by Anthony Zuiker (CBS Paramount); Came in better than expected and they are very pleased. Hearing this got a huge amount of response over at CBS.


CLOSE TO HOT:
1. SWINGTOWN by Mike Kelley (CBS Paramount): They really like this pilot but are not sure they can put it on air, rumors of it going to Showtime are floating around.

2. PROTECT & SERVE by Gibson & Halpern/GST (NUTS): Came in well and has a good shot.


WARM:
1. SKIP TRACER by Burgess & Green (CBS Paramount): A very good pilot. Not hearing a ton of buzz but fits the CBS mold of what they do.

2. VIVA LAUGHLIN by Bob Lowry (CBS Paramount/Sony/BBC Worldwide): The reviews on this have been very mixed, but heard some over at CBS really like the format.


COLD:
1. UNTITLED BARRY SCHINDEL (CBS Paramount): Have heard this did not come out well at all.

2. DEMONS by Barbara Hall (CBS Paramount): Hearing this came in very poor and that it is not well liked.

3. TWILIGHT by Munson & Koslow (WBTV/Silver): This did not come in great and, with Babylon Fields looking strong, this is very cold.


FBC
Hearing they will pick up 4 to 5 pilots.

HOT:
1. SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES by Josh Freidman (WBTV): This will be their one sure thing to pick up. Heard it looks great and they are very excited about how it came together.

2. APOSTLES by Chuck Pratt (20th): This came in much better than they thought and this is looking very good for a pick up.

3. THEM by McNamara & Eick (CBS Paramount/Eick/Circle of Confusion): This came in very strong and has a lot of support.


CLOSE TO HOT:
1. NURSES by Goodman & Stern (20th): Hearing they really like this show and would be something a bit lighter for them to put on the air.

2. K-VILLE by Jonathan Lisco (20th): This pilot is really starting to pick up some steam. Wouldn’t be surprised if it got a pick up.


WARM:
1. THE CURE by Massett & Zinman (WBTV): Hearing that this is just ok for them. Wouldn’t be surprised to see this move up.

2. CANTERBURY’S LAW by David Erickson (Sony/Apostle): Again hearing this is ok. Wouldn’t be surprised if they picked up another law show.


COLD:
1. NEW AMSTERDAM by Christian Taylor (Regency): Hearing this pilot does not look good and the pace of the show is incredibly slow.

2. SUPREME COURTSHIPS by Gary Tieche (20th/Adelstein): Heard this pilot is a mess and not getting any buzz at all.

3. NSA INNOCENT by Ehrman & Cochran (20th): Not a lot of buzz on this. That’s why it made the cold list.



CW

HOT:
1. GOSSIP GIRL by Josh Schwartz & Stephanie Savage (WBTV): This pilot looks great and is a great fit for their brand. Will be picked up.

2. THE REAPER by Fazekas & Butters (ABC TV Studios/Mark Gordon): CW is very happy with this show and I am hearing a lot of good things about it.


CLOSE TO HOT:
1. UNTITLED SOUTH AFRICA by Michael Rauch (CBS Paramount/Company Pics): Heard this came in ok, but, given their needs, this should get a pickup.

WARM:
1. BARNES by Tom Wheeler (WBTV/Class IV): This has come in so-so and not being talked about that much. However, it could easily move its way up.

2. SPELLBOUND by Maggie Friedman (WBTV): Hearing mixed reviews on this pilot.

COLD:
1. PAIGE ARMSTRONG by Rod Lurie (ABC TV Studios/Battle Plan): Not hearing great things and it lacks a showrunner.


NBC

HOT
1. THE WATCH from Decter and Strauss (Pariah/Sony) is looking good for pick-up.

Is that THE Kevin Smith, or just a coincidence?

looking at that longass list makes getting into TV writing seem discouraging. although I can't imagine what that list would look like for novels.

He mentioned it on his blog a few months ago (whenever the last time I read it was).

TV watchers buzzing as pilot season wraps
By Nellie Andreeva

May 7, 2007
Mother's Day is just around the corner, and with it comes the end of another development season. Just like the FDA extensively tests every new food before it hits the market, the broadcast networks for the past week have subjected their pilots to a series of rigorous screenings and testing by focus groups. At their upfront presentations in New York on May 14-18 the nets will announce which projects have been approved to go on the primetime market. But for now, pilot information is guarded more closely than the Coca-Cola recipe, forcing anxious industry folk to feed on rumors. Here is the latest round of pilot gossip:

-- ABC, which is rumored to pick up four to six one-hour pilots, is said to be proceeding with high-level staffing on two dramas, "Pushing Daisies" and the untitled Jon Feldman project -- a sign that the shows might be joining the "Grey's Anatomy" spinoff on the schedule next season. Also hot is drama "Marlowe," which recently received an order for two additional scripts and is now lining up series directors, as well as "Dirty Sexy Money." "Cashmere Mafia," "Eli Stone" and "Football Wives" also are believed to be in contention. "Sam I Am," "Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office," "The Thick of It" and "The Middle" are getting buzz on the comedy side.

-- NBC brass is said to be very high on the dramedy "Lipstick Jungle." Also flying high after extensive retooling is the sci-fi saga "The Bionic Woman" as well as three male-centered one-hours: Josh Schwartz's "Chuck," "Journeyman" and "Life." In fact, a scenario floating around has the network picking up all of its one-hour pilots except "Mayor of New York" with 12- or six-episode orders as strike contingency. On the comedy side, "Lipshitz Saves the World," which was filmed months ago, is making a charge alongside "Business Class" and "The IT Crowd."

-- CBS, which might pick up only three to four new dramas, is said to be high on the untitled Cynthia Cidre project, "Babylon Fields" and "The Man," with "Protect & Serve," "Swingtown," "Skip Tracer" and "Viva Laughlin" also in contention. Greg Garcia's "Fugly" is making noise on the comedy side.

-- Fox, which might pick up four to five drama pilots, is said to be seriously considering sci-fi entries "The Sarah Connor Chronicles" and "Them" and cop shows "The Apostles" and "K-Ville." Also in the running are "Nurses," "Canterbury's Law" and "The Cure." In the comedy field, besides "Action News," which is considered on the air, the untitled Victor Fresco project and animated "The Life and Times of Tim" also getting notice.

-- CW, which is looking to add three to four new dramas, is said to be high on Schwartz's "Gossip Girl," "The Reaper" and the untitled South Africa project.

While it's all about pilot buzz in Hollywood, these days, at colleges around the country, seniors are sweating their final exams as they prepare to take on the world. For dozens of graduating students from top drama schools, there are a couple of extra finals that could help them take on Hollywood.

For the past couple of weeks, universities have staged showcases in New York and Hollywood. On May 7-8 students from Carnegie Mellon will audition for agents and casting execs with school's alumna, producer Paula Wagner, on hand to introduce the shows.

"It's always been a resource for us," NBC's executive vp casting Marc Hirschfeld said of the showcases. "It's exciting to see these actors, many of whom don't know anything about the business but have a lot of poise and confidence and enthusiasm."

2006 Carnegie Mellon graduate Jack Carpenter was a breakout star at the showcase last year. Now he is one of the breakout stars of the pilot season with the title role on NBC's "Lipshitz."

The class of 2007 is looking to follow, but graduates are trying to manage expectations. "These are the people who will open the doors for us, but we're the ones who have to do the work," Melissa Tang said.
