EXCLUSIVE: A third ABC comedy pilot is getting a reshoot for midseason consideration. The network has ordered a new pilot for the single-camera half-hour How to Be a Better American. Written by Steven Cragg and Brian Bradley and produced by ABC Studios, the project centers on a father who embarks on a journey to be a better person and drags along his family kicking and screaming. It is not clear which actors from the original cast will be staying but a major recasting is expected. The two other ABC comedy pilots that have received new pilot production orders for midseason consideration are the Debra Messing starrer Wright vs. Wrong and Awkward Situations For Men, starring British writer/on-air personality Danny Wallace. Meanwhile, final resolution on The New Adventures of Old Christine‘s attempt to move to ABC is expected shortly but things don’t look good. On the drama side, the network has put five scripts on fast track for summer pilot orders: Charlie’s Angels, Department Zero, Behind the Blue, Ghostworld Island Of Women. Additionally, ABC has ordered six additional scripts for Edgar Floats.
