NBC orders Ron Moore pilot

Sony Pictures TV ensembler blends police, supernatural elements

NBC is said to have given a pilot order to a supernatural-themed police drama from “Battlestar Galactica” maven Ron Moore.

Sony Pictures TV project, dubbed “Precinct 17,” is described as a ensemble drama in the “Hill Street Blues” vein, albeit set in the town of Excelsior, where magic and supernatural elements rule over science.

Moore is the writer and exec producer.

Separately, ABC gave the greenlight to a comedy pilot from 20th Century Fox TV scribe Jack Burditt about man who tries to maintain his manliness in a world increasingly dominated by women. Burditt exec produces with Shawn Levy and Marty Adelstein, who recently formed a 20th-based production banner.
