Deadline brings word today that Lionsgate has formally swooped in to acquire the rights for Most Likely to Murder, a new black comedy headed up by Rachel Bloom and Adam Pally. It’s been placed firmly on the fast track, too, with the studio eyeing a production start sometime next month.

A Look at Pilot Strategies for ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and the CW

15 February 2017 10:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Peak TV has amped up the competition among networks for the past few pilot cycles. But this year, the growing number of television shows on all platforms and the lack of cancellations at the broadcast networks have compelled broadcasters to focus on quality instead of quantity: The Big Four have ordered nearly 20 fewer pilots this season than last.

Broadcasters seem to be playing it safe when it comes to auspices — the majority of projects hail from A-list producers and writers — but the nets are taking bigger swings when it comes to ideas, as only a handful of reboots and spinoffs are among the series in contention for 2017-2018. The networks also appear to be taking note of the country’s divisive climate with a slew of military-centric pilots.

Here’s our review of the strategies of each of the major networks this season:

Neil Patrick Harris’ Twins Are the Cutest Little Cupids in Matching Valentine’s Day Outfits

14 February 2017 6:55 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

No, this isn’t a new children’s clothing campaign or the latest kiddie pop duo! But Neil Patrick Harris’ 6-year-old twins, Gideon and Harper, easily could be!

The two were too cute for words as they rocked matching outfits to celebrate Valentine’s Day on Tuesday.

Exclusive: Neil Patrick Harris Dishes on Playful Parenting Techniques

In a photo posted by the 43-year-actor on Instagram, the adorable pair modeled their matching red-and-white heart tops and red heart sunglasses.

While Harper completed her look with a fabulous fur coat and patterned, pale pink leggings, Gideon was channeling some serious boy band vibes with baggy red jeans, black sneakers, a trendy red-and-black jacket and his blonde locks tucked under a casually-placed baseball cap.

Happy Valentine's Day from these two bundles of love! #cupids,” the How I Met Your Mother star captioned the photo.

Seems there’s no shortage of fun when Harris is your dad.

Netflix May Call Time On Stranger Things After Four Or Five Seasons

13 February 2017 12:03 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In fear that the über-popular sci-fi series will overstay its welcome, Stranger Things co-creators Matt and Ross Duffer believe that the Netflix original currently has enough mileage in the tank to last four or five seasons before bowing off the airwaves for good.

Word comes by way of Entertainment Weekly, where Ross Duffer stressed that, when it comes to the remaining episode count, nothing is concrete just yet: “Everything changes as we move forward so we’ll see.” Currently gearing up for its sophomore run, the Powers That Be over at Netflix will no doubt want to ensure Stranger Things remains a mainstay of the streamer’s digital portfolio for as long as possible.

Can New Voices Break Through in Pilot Season Dominated by Familiar Names?

8 February 2017 10:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The broadcast TV development process has changed dramatically during the past few years. The influx of competition from cable and streaming services with big budgets has forced the Big Four networks to move quickly, warm up to spec scripts, offer straight-to-series commitments, and in many instances, accept the fact that they are no longer the first stop for hot TV packages hitting the marketplace.

But one thing that doesn’t seem to have changed much in all of this upheaval is the reliance on tried-and-true hit-makers. As networks zero in on their last few pilot orders for the 2017-18 development cycle, the slate is dominated by a host of familiar uber-producers: Shonda Rhimes, Greg Berlanti, Tina Fey, Bill Lawrence. The “How I Met Your Mother” team is back at CBS with a comedy, and Marc Cherry of “Desperate Housewives” fame has come home to ABC, with Reba McEntire in tow, for »
