Primetime Pilot Panic: Fox Yeas & Nays


UPDATE: As expected, FBC is picking up the J.J. Abrams pilot Fringe (WBTV/Bad Robot). He’s the writer/exec producer. Network was really high on it all along.

UPDATE: After Fox cancelled, Back To You now being shopped to other networks.

FBC has picked up the animated comedy from Mitch Hurwitz Sit Down, Shut Up (Sony Pictures TV / Granada / Tantamount) to series. It’s a 13-episode order. All star voice cast: Jason Bateman, Will Forte, Will Arnett…

As was expected, FBC also has picked up Cleveland (20th Century Fox TV), the spin-off of Family Guy, for 13 episodes.

I hear the pilot Bob & Doug (aka The Adventures of Bob and Doug McKenzie) is cooling back off, though not dead yet. FBC will take a look at the completed pilot when it’s shot in July — on hold til then.

The pilot The Pitts (20th Century Fox TV) is dead.
