It’s raining pilots at ABC

Blomstertid
When it rains, it pours pilots at ABC, which has greenlit three more drama projects.

The Alphabet net has given a firm go to the pilots “Generation Y,” from scribe Noah Hawley; “Cutthroat,” written by Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters; and the Jerry Bruckheimer entry “The Whole Truth.”

“Generation Y” centers on a group of people in the present day — with flashbacks to their lives 10 years ago as seniors in high school. The comedic drama takes a documentary approach to the storytelling.

Project is based on the Scandinavian series “Blomstertid” (“On God’s Highway”; pic above). Hawley is writing and exec producing, while Warren Littlefield is also an EP.

Also listed as exec producers are Henrik Bastin, Peter Magnasson and Martin Piersson, all from Stockholm-Copenhagen Prods., which was behind “On God’s Highway.”

ABC Studios is behind “Generation Y.”

As for “Cutthroat,” show centers on a single mother who keeps up appearances in Beverly Hills by secretly running a drug cartel. 

20th Century Fox TV and ABC Studios are behind the project, another comedic drama. Fazekas and Butters will exec produce.

Then there’s “The Whole Truth,” from scribe Tom Donaghy.

Legal show follows the work of both the defense and the prosecution in a case — leaving auds guessing until the end where they should have placed their allegiances on guilt or innocence.

Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman are exec producers, while Donaghy will serve as a co-EP. KristieAnne Reed is also a co-exec producer.

Bruckheimer also recently landed the pilot “Chase” at NBC.
