Prime Time Crime Pilot Status Updates for the 2010 Fall Season

Mysteries on TV

Over the past few months we've reported on new crime dramas and other mystery-themed television shows that the broadcast networks are considering for the upcoming fall season. There are also more than a handful of remakes in the works. Now with the official schedule announcements only a few weeks away, The Live Feed blog on The Hollywood Reporting is providing a status update for several of the series pilots.

On NBC, the remake of The Rockford Files is considered a "near-lock" to be on the schedule, as is J. J. Abrams' spy drama Undercovers.

Over at CBS, another remake, this one of Hawaii Five-O, has also "sealed the deal". Less certain are pilots for the Criminal Minds spin-off and the CIA drama Chaos.

Fox's U. S. Marshals drama Breakout Kings "continues to generate buzz", but the con-man drama Midland may not fit into the network's brand.

On ABC, the crime drama 187 is "looking very strong" along with the Dana Delaney-led medical crime drama Body of Evidence.

Finally, on the CW, the remake of La Femme Nikita (this time titled just Nikita) has turned out "very strong".

Fall schedules for the networks are typically announced in mid- to late-May.
