    I love pilot season and American TV in general but I haven’t been keeping track that much this year. I know Leighton Meester’s new show ‘Making History’ has been picked up by FOX. Her involvement piqued my interest but the premise actually seems interesting.

    I’m intrigued about ‘Riverdale’ because it’s been awhile since The CW have done a high school drama and critics/industry people have said that the script is promising.

  5. I'm interested to see what they do with Emerald City. This is their 3rd attempt at getting it on air, will it make it this time?
     
  6. This is my first time following renewals beyond personal 'cult' favs over the year and I never realised it was so brutal and bloody!

  8. I'm so excited for Riverdale!
     
  9. I thought America's Next Top Model was moved to another network and with new host?
     
  10. Wasn't it going to VH1?
     
  11. Ah yes that sounds like it.

  12. The new DC Comics comedy Powerless sounds pretty interesting as well.
     
  13. I wonder if American Gothic will be another weird slightly horror show that's cancelled after most of a season... Like the show with the same name was in the 90's.
    Somebody tell me about Riverdale, it's high time we had a decent new teen show to get addicted to.
     
  14. The only thing I know about Riverdale is it's meant to be a 'grown up' version and one of the characters is using Grindr on the show.
     


  15. SOLD
     
  16. CBS has ordered Doubt (Katherine Heigl's latest vehicle) to series. She plays a defence lawyer who falls in love with her client. It will probably be boring.

    Katherine Heigl is a kiss of death for anything/everything now. Good luck to her.

    Wonder how that Kristen Bell show is going to be? Did House of Lies finish??

    Sarah Michelle Gellar doesn’t have much luck with shows either. ‘Ringer’ and ‘Crazy Ones’ both cancelled after their first seasons, despite receiving a ton of promotion and buzz. She’s doing the ‘Cruel Intentions’ reboot but rumour has it that if NBC pick it up, it’ll air in the summer, which is a terrible idea.
