“The Middle”: Patricia Heaton pilot gaining steam at ABC

Patriciaheaton Buzz is building at ABC for the Patricia Heaton starrer “The Middle.”

The Warner Bros. TV half-hour,penned by DeAnn Heline and Eileen Heisler, tells the story of a middle-class Midwestern family through the eyes of a harried mom with a quirky (is there any other kind?) family. It’s said to have a certain sweetness to it, or what was described as “Malcolm in the Middle” meets “The Wonder Years.”

Single-cam project is a redo of the pilot WBTV produced for ABC a year ago with Ricki Lake as the lead.

Alyssa Milano starrer “Romantically Challenged” remains high on ABC’s hot list, as is Courteney Cox’s “Cougar Town.” Still in the mix is Kelsey Grammer’s “Awesome Hank.”

A surprise bit of news from today’s trolling is that the 1980s remake “V” looks like a midseason drama contender for ABC.
