Why did ABC cut Stana Katic from Castle only to then cancel the show altogether? New network president Channing Dungey was tasked with answering that dicey question Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.
“That’s a case where you have things running on two parallel tracks,” Dungey explained to reporters. “We were always upfront with the studio and producers that we might not be bringing the show back for Season 9. [The studio/producers] did what they had to do [in case there was another season]. Ultimately, we did not feel like it was the right thing to do to order another season.”

This is no wild guess. CBS has made a put-pilot commitment to the Hunch TV show pilot from Christopher Murphey and Matthew Gross. Murphey created the Body of Proof TV series, which was cancelled by ABC in 2013, after three seasons. He and Gross were co-showrunners on the medical drama, starring Dana Delany and Jeri Ryan.A procedural, Hunch hails from CBS Television Studios and EuropaCorp TV Studios. As a put-pilot, Hunch is likely to be greenlit, because if the show doesn't air as a series premiere or at least a special, the network owes financial penalties. Per Deadline, "Hunch centers on a Lapd detective who begrudgingly teams up with a celebrity psychic who, unfortunately, is also his ex-wife."Read More… »

Every network, it seems, has a bugaboo time period on its schedule, and for ABC it clearly is the final hour of primetime on Tuesday.
The longtime home of one of the Alphabet’s most successful and acclaimed dramas ever, “NYPD Blue,” Tuesday-at-10 in recent years has been a turnstile of, well, turkeys. In many cases, these shows were off-brand, and given the network’s overall struggles earlier on the night and its lack of a Tuesday identity, it seemed like the only place on the schedule for programmers to slot them.
“Of Kings and Prophets” was originally scheduled to air Sundays at 10 p.m. last fall, but the network ended up pulling and then retooling the biblical drama, replacing it with “Quantico.” When “Kings” did finally air, odds seemed stacked against it, and its new intended timeslot of Tuesday at 10 only seemed to hasten the inevitable.

TNT made a major play in acquiring Artificial Intelligence, a new show that will revolve around an “escaped” AI, and the efforts to monitor, stop, prevent, understand whatever it may be trying to do. The show is written by Luc Besson (who may direct the pilot) and Bill Wheeler, and marks a new step in TNT’s growing effort to include… “out of the ordinary” programming.
With Lucy 2 and the massive-budget Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets already on his plate, this shift in gears may make for one of television’s most interesting new shows. Considering the rather open description, which could lead us through a unique vision of what it means to live with an AI “out there,” there’s no telling exactly where this show could take audiences.
Still, this one might really come down to casting, and like a lot of Luc Besson’s projects, »
