Early Casting Cuts Through Pilot Season Clutter

27 January 2017 4:02 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Felicity Huffman, Courtney B. Vance, Zach Braff, Reba McEntire, Alan Cumming, Mark Feuerstein, Craig Robinson, and Adam Scott.

These actors all signed onto network TV projects before pilot pickups — and now, their pilots have in fact all been given the green light.

This development season saw a growing trend of casting stars well before pilot season began, giving the potential series a leg up against the hefty competition.

While certain projects have always been developed specifically for a star, the bulk of TV shows are typically put into development without talent, then greenlit to pilot and then casting begins. But for the 2017-2018 season, studios were strategic in attaching more actors than ever before to projects in the midst of the development cycle.

Now at the halfway point of pilot season, some of the first pilots to be picked up were McEntire’s ABC series with Marc Cherry, Feuerstein’s CBS comedy “9J, 9K »
