Pilot Buzz from Deadline - 17th April 2015



The very first and last pilots ordered by Fox this year seem to be garnering the most early buzz, drama Minority Report, based on the Steven Spielberg movie, and comedy Grinder starring Rob Lowe as TV lawyer playing a real one at the family law firm. It is shaping up to be a strong year for 1990s heartthrobs at Fox, with John Stamos‘ comedy, in which he plays a version of himself, also in serious contention. Also talked about early on is 48 Hours ‘Til Monday starring Sarah Chalke and Rob Riggle.

Last year, the Shonda Rhimes-produced drama pilot How To Get Away with Murder was an early standout and kept the momentum to a series order and a spot on Thursday, joining Rhimes’ other two ABC series, Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal. Following HTGAWM‘s breakout success, it’s no surprise that another Shondaland mystery drama, Jennifer Schur’s The Catch starring Mireille Enos, is among the ABC pilots getting early buzz. And just like last year, there is a Marvel project whose existence noone is allowed to acknowledge that will likely fly under the radar until landing on the ABC schedule. Last year it was Agent Carter, this time it is an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff featuring characters from the original series.
