More Prime Time Crime Pilot Status Updates for the 2010 Fall Season

Mysteries on TV

A few days ago we gave an update on how The Hollywood Reporter was sizing up the new fall season (with our own emphasis on crime dramas). Today Variety is providing their view on which pilots have a chance to be picked up by the networks.

NBC, with the most open slots to fill, is said to be adding staff for its remake of The Rockford Files, a good sign that it's a go. Also looking good are The Chase, about federal marshals tracking down fugitives, the conspiracy thriller The Event, and The Cape, about a former cop who becomes a masked superhero to clear his name.

Over at CBS, the remake of Hawaii Five-O seems to be a sure thing. Other than that, the only other show mentioned is the Criminal Minds spin-off, which may be considered as a mid-season replacement.

ABC seems likely to pick up the Dana Delaney medical examiner series Body of Evidence and the cop show 187 Detroit.

Leading Fox crime drama pilots include Breakout Kings, about a team of ex-cons who team up with US marshals, the Chicago-based police drama Ride-Along, and the legal thriller Pleading Guilty, based on the Scott Turow Kindle County novels. The con man drama Midland, also under consideration, is thought to be more appropriate for its sister network, FX.

Finally, the CW is said to be sure to go with the remake of La Femme Nikita.

The network announcements for the 2010 fall season are expected in mid-May.
