  1. natalie millican says:

    I have a personal interest in a pilot getting picked up, but havent heard anything yet. When do they announce the final picks and rejects?? This is for one of the USA 2017 pilots. Thanks..

  2. paula counts says:

    criminal minds is about to loose a lot of viewer’s without hodge seems like men who make the show might cause anger issues look how parents left the show because you all treated men better then women wtf that show will not last without him I started watching again when you brought back then herd about him ill stop when he goes he has apologized in twelve years come on

  3. ABC'S 30% chance of success says:

    Poor ABC and Channing Dungey! Already up the creek without a paddle, now they have to enter the 2016/2017 season, stuck between a rock and a hard place. From that tremendous list of pilots they only have about 7 shows with the potential to open big and hold an audience for more than one season. Oh, well. Sometimes during the game you have to make the best of a bad situation and play with the hand that is dealt to you. Good luck to CD. Most of this BSC will arrive DNA in the ratings. Hope she has the good sense, and the backbone to say no to the obvious flop material and yes to the solid pilot offerings.

  4. gitieDJ says:

    What about The Blexicans?

  5. Marco says:

    What about the Greatest American Hero and Ateam remakes?

  6. Alan says:

    I read that Cruel Intentions was being made into an NBC pilot? Is it being made into a pilot? Its not listed.

  7. lora says:

    You forget Presence (ABC)

  8. Maggie says:

    What is the date of this article, please? And does anyone know why dates are not listed on web periodicals?

  9. Gloria says:

    When is Devious maids coming back

  10. Michael W says:

    They all look boring – typical the ‘lemmings’. No one knows anything in Hollywood.

  11. doglady22 says:

    Can not wait to see Game Of Silence. Tons of people are waiting for this. So excited. NBC better pick this one up. Great actors are in it and it sounds good.

  12. InCoconutGrove says:

    Did see one medical, Heart Matters at NBC. I guess they didn’t see Three Rivers. Transplant stories are all the same story. Heart transplant doctor equals one story told over and over and over. The pilot could be good but I suspect there is no where to go with this that is not repetitive.

  13. InCoconutGrove says:

    What happened to all that medical development? No shows at ABC or CBS that are medical. Where is the Malcolm Gladwell one at Fox? You don’t even list it as dead. was it written?

  14. Tabitha says:

    If you scroll up and where it says, “View Pilots By…” and if you select “All Networks,” it will refresh the list to include the other networks, including cable networks too. “SPI: The Case Of The Dark Shadow,” would make a great TV series too! Bring back “Happy Endings” too! I loved that show!

  15. Jeni Miller says:

    It would be great to see the other networks, too. ;)

  16. Tabitha says:

    I wish someone would make a film based on the YA book, “SPI: The Case Of The Dark Shadow.” Has Harry Potter-ish potential.

  17. Ed says:

    I certainly hope that the FX pilot “Hoke” gets picked up and further more, hope they do decide to film in Miami and not elsewhere. When will this decision be made?

  18. Danny says:

    Well I see Fox and NBC have made some moves. Not to interested in the shows NBC picked up today although I am happy to see Anna Friel back on TV. Red Band Society looks interesting and the show has lots of good buzz so I will give that one a look.

  19. neryvania says:

    Ei gostaria de saber se tera a continuaçao do arranjo adaptado por nicolas falacci.Aguardo resposta.

    • neryvania says:

      Gostaria de saber se tera a continuaçao da serie DO ARRANJO adaptaçao de Nicolas falacci.Aguardo resposta.

  20. Conner says:

    Will there be more networks added as the season continues?

  21. George says:

    It’s time a network focused attention onto the issue of human trafficking in America and THE LIFE is that series that shines a light on the issue. Intelligent, provocative, groundbreaking. Why isn’t THIS on TV?

  22. mitchell says:

    This show needs to be picked up.
    Check it out.

    • Here is another TV series worthy of attention, its called “tráfico” a character driven American crime drama about the dark and invisible side of human trafficking within the United States. Its the story of Ricardo Rodriguez, an abandoned son of a sex slave, who goes undercover to infiltrates a violent and furtive sex trafficking ring to find his mother and exact his revenge.

  23. Des Brown says:

    Hope AN AMERICAN EDUCATION makes it to series. The BBC original BAD EDUCATION was far and away the funniest thing on British TV in the past couple of years.

  24. Jax says:

    There is only one show on the entire pilot list for ABC that I am interested in and unfortunately it is the one that is least likely to get made. Strange Calls could be a good show but it doesn’t seem like a fit for ABC.

  25. jacq forens says:

    SAVE The DATE and How I met Your Dad look like comedy winners to me!! Yay CBS!

  26. Yirmin says:

    Now where do we have a place to book money on which of those end up never being seen by anyone outside of the studio that ordered them… I’m betting from some of those loglines that someone at ABC was on serious drugs… a few of those are such stinkers I can’t imagine someone isn’t going to be fired for wasting the time to respond to them let alone give any a green light to move forward.

  27. Spaniard says:

    Really looking forward to THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA. Go Debra Messing!

  28. Robert says:

    What? Family Guide got picked up by NBC!

  29. maría says:

    Brilliant

    Dracula??? Why not Blackula!

    Disney needs to order a series for Girl Meets World. They’re taking a while :(

  32. EK says:

    Great program. Beats sibling effort by far!
