The CW Orders Pilots Shelter, Selection and Joey Dakota
Three more pilot orders for The CW, to add to the five previously announced. I’d love to know how many pilot orders are typical for the network, to see if shows like Nikita and Ringer are in more danger than I would like.
Shelter looks like it’s trying to build on the success of Downton Abbey and The Help, by focusing on the staff at a resort. Seems a little bland to be a J.J. Abrams project, but I think it could make a good half hour comedy.
The Selection brings The Hunger Games to mind (even though I haven’t gotten around to reading the book), but 300 years in the future sounds awesome in a premise, no matter the rest of it.
Joey Dakota – I think romantic time-travel musical says about everything. It could be wonderful, or it could fall utterly. But is that NCIS’s Mark Harmon as an executive producer?
