Deadline's Pilots 2018: Very, Very Early Buzz Edition Article

Share on Reddit

It’s April, so Deadline is launching its annual Pilot Panic feature where we track buzz on the broadcast pilots as they go through filming, editing, screenings and testing. As usual, the first story is very sketchy and preliminary as many drama pilots are still filming, several comedy pilots have not shot yet and there are no cuts in. Here is a list of some pilots that are getting strong early buzz based on a combination of auspices, script, table read, taping or dailies. Because how early it is, please take the information with big grain of salt. For a number of projects, especially high-concept dramas, it’s impossible to predict their chances until the pilot has been cut together.

On the hourlong side, ABC has the Nathan Fillion starrer The Rookie, which has a straight-to-series order and has been well received so far. Of the pilots, Courtney Kemp’s Get Christie Love starring Kylie Bunbury has been an early favorite, along with the Eva Longoria-produced Grand Hotel, toplined by Demian Bichir and Roselyn Sanchez, and DJ Nash’s ensemble A Million Little Things. Additionally, getting mentions early on are For Love, considered one of ABC’s biggest swings this season, Marcia Clark’s The Fix, suburban drama False Profits, mystery Salvage and cop family drama The Finest.
