Pilot News

According to the Hollywood Reporter, with less then two weeks before the May UpFronts in New York, Networks are already giving Pilots the green-light.

ABC ordered “Six Degrees,” from executive producer J.J. Abrams; CBS gave the nod to “Jericho,” executive produced and to be directed by Jon Turteltaub, and to “Orpheus,” from executive producers Ridley and Tony Scott; Fox greenlighted “Faceless,” which “Narc” helmer Joe Carnahan is on board to direct and executive produce; and NBC gave a thumbs up to “Heroes,” from “Crossing Jordan” creator Tim Kring, and to “Seeing Red,” from writer-producer Graham Yost.

Out of all the pilots discussed this season, theTVaddict is most excited for HEROES. Starring Greg Grunberg, Milo Ventimiglia, Hayden Panettiere and Ali Larter, HEROES features “a group of everyday people find out they have superpowers.” The script has been getting amazing ‘buzz’ around town (the town being Hollywood) and anything that stars the incredible Greg Grunberg has got to be great!

    Both shows look great. Sorkin’s new show will hopefully make the loss of the WEST WING a bit easier.

    Can not wait for Heros and Studio 60!! I feel like all these great shows are ending (ie. The West Wing, Alias) this year so hopefully these new shows can fill the void.
