NBC Fall: ‘Awake’, ‘Playboy’ & ‘Grimm’ Are In, ‘The Event’ & ‘Outsourced’ Canceled

14 May 2011 8:13 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

It’s crunch time for the TV networks as stations make their final decisions on what to keep and what to toss. NBC made a splash this week by declining David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman, but there’s plenty of other series that are down to the wire.

Wonder Woman you already know about, but joining it in the failure column are Ronald Moore’s 17th Precinct, A Mann’s World, Brave New World, Family Practice, I Hate That I Love You, Lovelives, Metro, My Life As An Experiment and Reconstruction. Criminal Minds fans may actually be happy about Experiment‘s failure, as it frees up Paget Brewster for a possible return.

Now for the good news…

Confirmed New Series

Fall 2011-12 drama and comedy pilots: What's the next hit (and what's headed to the trash bin)

10 May 2011 2:46 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

After spending untold amounts of cash on hundreds of dramas and comedies — most of which will never make it to your living rooms — the five broadcast networks will begin announcing in New York next week which projects are good enough to earn a coveted fall pickup. (NBC and Fox will present their fall schedule to advertisers on Monday, followed by ABC on Tuesday, CBS on Wednesday and the CW on Thursday).

Buzz is already strong for several projects (for more on the hot ones, click here). But every year, we always wonder what diamond-in-the-rough was left on the cutting room »

15 April 2011 7:36 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: JJ fans can rejoice. After a week of negotiations, A.J. Cook just closed a two-year deal to return to CBS' drama Criminal Minds as a regular. She will guest star in the series' sixth season finale on May 18 before re-joining the show full-time in the fall. Cook departed Criminal Minds after the end of last season when her option was not picked up, stirring outcry among fans of the show.

Cook then returned for the last episode of the season for co-star Paget Brewster, which aired last month. If Brewster's NBC comedy pilot My Life As An Experiment does not go to series, she will also likely return to Criminal Minds in the fall since series' producer ABC Studios has an option on her. »
