Deadline's Pilots 2019: Latest Buzz On What’s Hot At the Broadcast Networks

Share on Reddit

The field of leading ABC drama contenders has narrowed down a bit. Staying strong after the screenings are early standouts PI drama Stumptown starring Cobie Smulders, the soapy, John Mayer song-inspired Heart of Life, the new NYPD Blue and the untitled Hank Steinberg /50 Cent (SpoilerTV hears the title is For Life) legal drama. NY Undercover also has supporters; I hear its fate might be tied to that of bubble drama The Rookie as ABC is unlikely to go for three cop dramas in these two and NYPD Blue. I also hear the little ABC executives have seen of Bermuda Triangle drama Triangle, which is still filming and is only submitting a sizzle reel, looks promising but they might not make a final decision pre-upfronts.

The four early standouts at the CW reaffirmed their front-runner status after the network screenings. That includes Batwoman, starring Ruby Rose, which people are raving about; Riverdale spinoff Katy Keene, starring Lucy Hale; Nancy Drew, toplined by Kennedy McMann; and Glamorous, headlined by Ben J. Pierce. The CW already renewed 14 scripted series for next season, but if it can stretch the budget for a fifth new series pickup, I hear The Lost Boys has a shot.
