Primetime Pilot Panic: Still More News

LATEST: Fox Sitcom ‘Back To You’ Cancelled; ‘The Inn’ Pilot Picked Up

Here are more updates: I’ve just been told that The Inn (20th Century Fox TV /  Reveille / Principato-Young Entertainment) was given the go-ahead by Fox to meet writers. I’m not sure if they can hire yet, “but it’s looking good,” a source explains. Directed by Jason Bateman, the pilot “is indeed good at FBC, and it screened best.” Bruce Helford is gone from the Bernie Mac starrer Starting Under (WBTV / Mohawk), so the Fox comedy now needs a new showrunner. “The pilot stinks, but they want Bernie on air,” a source explains. And the sitcom My Best Friend’s Girl (Sony Pictures TV) is “heavy in the mix of CBS half-hours.” Also, NBC isn’t making any changes in its already announced schedule at Monday’s upfront.
