CW - New President wants Procedurals, Comedies, Remakes and Superhero series


The CW's 2011 - 2012 season was mostly of Ex-President Dawn Ostroff's design but starting next season the new President will oversee development and at the TCA he expressed an interest in Procedurals, Comedies, Remakes and Superhero series

"We are opening ourselves up to look at comedies this year," said Pedowitz. "We feel there are comedies out there that would have worked well on CW."

Citing the existence of DC Comics in the Warner Bros. family, Pedowitz said he's actively looking to add a superhero-themed series to add to the schedule.

Pedowitz also spoke of his desire to see at least one drama join the schedule that avoids the serialized style that marks most CW series given they repeat better and invite more viewers to sample beyond the premiere.

"We're not going to walk away from serialized programming but at the same time there's a deep focus on that close-ended show that has a CW show feel to it," said Pedowitz. "We need those shows. That's where we're headed."

Another programming style Pedowitz signaled an interest in is remakes, citing the success of "90210" on CW and Syfy's "Battlestar Galactica." However, he declined to identify specific properties he's eyeing but made his desire to do something in this territory clear: "I believe in new twists on a great idea," he said.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
