NBC ramps up pilots for midseason

NBC is already looking to midseason, ordering a pilot from Paul Haggis (“Crash”) and redeveloping last spring’s lottery-themed pilot “Windfall.” Fox originally developed “Windfall” and shot a pilot starring Luke Perry, Jason Gedrick and Sarah Wynter – but the network ultimately passed on the project. “Windfall,” which comes from Regency TV and exec producer Laurie McCarthy (“CSI: Miami”), revolves around a group of young adults who win a record multi-million dollar lottery jackpot and find that the prize isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be. NBC will retool the script and make casting changes before a new pilot is shot. As for Haggis, the busy writer is behind the NBC pilot “The Truth About Joey Ice Cream.” Haggis, who will exec produce, wrote the script on spec. “Joey Ice Cream” follows the tale of Irish brothers who grow up in the world of organized crime in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood.
