Perfect Couples appears to be the next pilot on the runway for a series pickup. I hear the hot comedy pilot from UMS and writers Scott Silveri and Jon Pollack has been authorized to make offers to writers, usually a step before a full-fledged series order. Meanwhile, the network’s other relationship comedy, the 20th TV-produced Friends With Benefits seems to still be in contention too as it is actively looking for a showrunner. And legal drama Garza is heating up. With star Jimmy Smits testing well and enjoying strong support at NBC, there is a lot of chatter about the show, from Conan O’Brien’s production company, being retooled for midseason.
