'Pulp Fiction' contrib'r enters pilot race

Roger Avary, the writer-producer who earned an Oscar for his story contributions to “Pulp Fiction,” has written and executive produced a new pilot for NBC and Spelling Television.

NBC officials declined to comment on the project, but sources say the pilot was completed last week.
