What the Broadcast Networks Are Betting on This Development Season

Hollywood Reporter, 11.16.11

"An invitation to an invitation to a preparty."

That's how ABC chief Paul Lee describes his network's fall script purchases, only a tiny percentage of which will end up on air. Still, every hit show starts with an exec saying yes to a pitch, and during the past few months, networks and studios have bought hundreds of promising projects, from original ideas like "mechanical-human dramas" to remakes of classics like The Munsters and The Rifleman.

THR parses the loglines and pilot commitments to analyze what the networks are buying....

Best Bet (drama): Blue Tilt has Ethan Hawke and Vincent D'Onofrio attached as fragile homicide detectives balancing work with family.

I hope so much that NBC picks it up. How great it would be to have Vincent on TV again.

They sound more hopeful about 'Blue Tilt' than Vincent does - but then Vincent is well aware how 'fickle' the networks are, especially NBC....

Keeping my fingers crossed on this one. This blurb is encouraging, if for some reason NBC backs away from it, maybe another network will pick it up.
