Fox pilots back on runway

Options extended for 'Faceless,' 'Man,' 'Guy' thesps

A trio of 20th Century Fox TV pilots have received a new lease on life.

All of the regulars on “Faceless,” a drama about hostage negotiators, have had their options extended by the studio. Same is true for several cast members of laffer “12th Man” and four of the regulars on “The Adventures of Big Handsome Guy and His Little Friend.”

All three shows were developed for Fox Broadcasting.

Though there’s no guarantee that any of the shows will ultimately get picked up, extending thesp options can be a good sign the studio thinks there’s interest in the shows from a network. In most cases, 20th’s hold on the actors involved runs through December.
