The 4400 reboot not moving forward this season at The CW

Having completed its pilot pickups for the year, Deadline is reporting that The CW has opted to roll its planned reboot of the cult sci-fi series The 4400 forward to next pilot season, along with two other projects in The L.A. Complex and Good Christian Bitches.

A reimagining of the USA Network drama series, The 4400 has been created by original series writer and supervising producer Craig Sweeny and Taylor Elmore (Justified), but the duo were unable to get the script for the pilot ready in time to progress.

Back in 2017, The CW opted to roll back the pilots for Charmed and The Lost Boys, with Charmed receiving a series order last season and The Lost Boys among six pilot pickups at The CW alongside Batwoman, Glamorous, Jane the Novella, Nancy Drew and Katy Keene.

‘The 4400’ & ‘The L.A. Complex’ Reboots And ‘Good Christian Bitches’ Rolled To Next Season At the CW

  • Deadline
Exclusive: The CW has officially wrapped its 2019 pilot pickups with six orders, and three high-profile projects, The 4400, The L.A. Complex and Good Christian Bitches, were not among those getting a green light but neither is dead. All three have been rolled to next season, which is something the CW President Mark Pedowitz does with IP he believes in.

In 2017, there also were two big-title projects that did not make the cut to pilot, Charmed and The Lost Boys. Both were rolled and subsequently made it to pilot — Charmed did it last season, when it was picked up to series and was recently renewed for a second season. It took another year, but The Lost Boys too nabbed a pilot order last month.

The reasons for The 4400, The L.A. Complex and Good Christian Bitches being rolled vary from project to project.

‘Good Christian Bitches’ Reboot in the Works at The CW

  • The Wrap
The CW is taking another shot at “Good Christian Bitches,” looking to adapt the Kim Gatlin novel for television once again, six years after ABC’s short-lived adaption titled “Gcb.”

Leila Cohan-Miccio will serve as a writer and executive producer on the show, which is in development at the network. Darren Star and Aaron Kaplan are also back on board to executive produce.

Described as a “semi-autobiographical” story about the clergy and parishioners of a Texas church, “Good Christian Bitches” was first adapted into an ABC dramedy, starring Kristin Chenoweth, Leslie Bibb, Jennifer Aspen, Miriam Shor, Marisol Nichols and Annie Potts.

Under pressure from Christian groups, the network tamed down the title from “Good Christian Bitches” to “Gcb” before the show premiered in May 2012. After a 10-episode run, the show was canceled due to unimpressive ratings.

Variety is reporting that The CW is in development on a reboot of the cult sci-fi series The 4400 from CBS TV Studios, with original series writer and supervising producer Craig Sweeny and Taylor Elmore (Justified) serving as co-writers and executive producers.

Created by Scott Peters and Rene Echevarria, The 4400 aired on USA Network for four seasons between 2004 and 2007, and followed four thousand four hundred people who had disappeared in a beam of light over the past fifty years, only for all of them to reappear in the present, exactly the same age as they were when they disappeared, and with no recollection of events. The returnees – dubbed the ‘4400’ – have to grapple with their return to a changed world, along with the realisation that they have been altered in ways they don’t fully understand.

The CW is Developing a Reboot of The 4400

It’s kind of silly that Hollywood rarely takes chances on original concepts. In 2007 the USA Network series The 4400 aired its final episode. It was a decent series for its time, but now The CW wants to reboot it.

The series will be produced by CBS Television Studios, which produced the original series and the project is being developed by Taylor Elmore and Craig Sweeny. They will co-write the pilot for the reboot and executive produce, with Elmore set to serve as showrunner.

In the series, “over the course of recent history, four thousand four hundred young adults in their reproductive prime have gone missing all over the world. Some disappearances happened as recently as a few weeks ago, while others date as far back as the day the Soviets launched the Sputnik satellite in 1957.

The CW Is Rebooting ‘The 4400,’ and It’s Actually Not a Bad Idea

USA's mid-2000s sci-fi series The 4400 is getting a reboot at The CW, and honestly, it's a rare case of that idea being a decent one. Though it did run for four seasons, the original 4400 was never as appreciated in its day as it should have been, because people didn't really go to USA for sci-fi and everyone was caught up with Lost. But The 4400 (created by René Echevarria and Scott Peters) had a really interesting premise and a great cast -- it starred Mahershala Ali, Jacqueline McKenzie, Joel Gretsch, Laura Allen, Patrick …

Joseph Baxter Nov 7, 2018

A reboot of the USA Network sci-fi mystery series, The 4400, is in development at The CW.

The 4400 is not a show that gets name-dropped very often these days, but that will soon change. The slow-burn sci-fi mystery series, which ran for four seasons on USA Network from 2004 to 2007 will make its own dare to defy attempt with a reboot series now being planned for The CW.

The current version of the original producing studio of The 4400, CBS Television Studios, is returning to the property to produce a reboot/reimagining of the series, developed as an offering for The CW. The studio has given the reigns of the series to the overall-deal-fulfilling duo of Taylor Elmore and a writer/producer from the original series in Craig Sweeny.
