NBC has handed out pilot orders to Kevin Falls' sci-fi drama Journeyman and to suburban one-hour The Watch from There's Something About Mary writers Ed Decter and John J. Strauss.

Additionally, the network has lifted the contingency on three comedy pilots: I'm With Stupid, The IT Crowd and "Kath & Kim."

Journeyman, from 20th Century Fox TV, has received a cast-contingent order. It is an epic romantic fantasy about a man who travels back in time to alter and fix the lives of people in trouble, but by recalibrating the past, he sometimes affects the future.

Emmy winner Falls (NBC's The West Wing) is the writer/executive producer. The project originally was picked up by NBC in August with a put pilot commitment (HR 8/21).

The Watch, from Sony Pictures TV and Pariah, revolves around a suburban neighborhood watch group gone awry.

Decter and Strauss, whose credits also include the two Santa Clause sequels, are executive producing with Pariah's Gavin Polone and Jamie Tarses.

I'm With Stupid, The IT Crowd and "Kath & Kim" were given cast-contingent pilot orders in November (HR 11/9).
