    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?

  2. 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.

  3. neryvania says:

  4. Conner says:

    Will there be more networks added as the season continues?

  5. 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?

  6. mitchell says:

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. jacq forens says:

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

  10. 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.

  11. Spaniard says:

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

  12. Robert says:

    What? Family Guide got picked up by NBC!

  13. maría says:

    Brilliant

  14. NardoE says:

    Dracula??? Why not Blackula!
    That’s right I said it ! … ”
    Blackula the musical” … On roller skates

  15. pcpurecommunity1234 says:

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

  16. EK says:
