Nets wind their way to fest fetes

New series get noticed at N.Y. Television Fest

NEW YORK — The second year of the New York Television Festival brought plenty of notice from the networks as NBC, ABC and Fox used the fest to throw red-carpet preems of new series.

NBC and ABC premiered “Kidnapped” and “The Knights of Prosperity,” respectively, two shows produced in Gotham. And Fox preemed “Standoff” — a series based in Los Angeles.

The creators of ABC’s wacky workplace comedy “Knights,” in which a group of misfits — New York archetypes, all — plot and scheme to rob Mick Jagger, said the show could not be done outside the city.

“At this point, Jon and I are really set about doing things in New York,” said Rob Burnett, who along with Jon Beckerman, is co-executive producer. “The cast is representative of what the real New York is and we’re really happy to put that on television.”
