The Hollywood Reporter - 10 TV Pilots Likely to Score Series Pickups

Thanks to Mille for the heads up.

1. Ghosted (Fox)
With not one but two marketable stars in Craig Robinson and Adam Scott, the comedyis said to have surprised insiders with an impressive finished product. The single-camera comedy — produced in-house at 20th Century Fox TV — centers on a cynical skeptic (The Office's Robinson), and a genius "true believer" in the paranormal (Scott, Parks and Recreation), who are recruited by The Bureau Underground to look into the rampant "unexplained" activity in Los Angeles — all while uncovering a larger mystery that could threaten the existence of the human race. Elsewhere, execs are eager to stay in business with Eva Longoria, currently recurring on Empire, with workplace comedy Type-A also considered a network favorite. Buzzy Lauren Graham starrer Linda From HR — picked up with a cast contingency given its Mr. Robot meets family comedy premise — is said to have had problems and is, as multiple sources called it, "not a network comedy."

2. Untitled Marvel (Fox)
As one top agent said of Fox's drama pilots, "If they're English, they're going." The network has six dramas in the works and rolled two of them off-cycle (Neal Baer's The Beastand Matt Reeves' The Passage), leaving its Behind Enemy Linesreboot, Sheldon Turner's timely campus rapeentry, Emily VanCamp medical pilot The Residentand its untitled Marvel drama). Of those, the clear frontrunner has been Matt Nix's don't-call-it-X-Men X-Men drama, with the rumor mill buzzing that it could nab an early series pickup.
