ABC wipes away ‘Earth Scum’

C-W to shop show elsewhere, Fox among suitors

ABC has officially passed on the comedy pilot “Earth Scum” from Carsey-Werner in association with Granada Entertainment USA. Insiders say Carsey-Werner is now negotiating to get the pilot back from ABC so it can shop to show to other networks, and Fox is among those interested in taking a look.
