"Angie Tribeca" on TBS

Isn't this essentially Brooklyn-99?
Rashida deserves better / something original.

"Conan" on til 2018

TBS Renews Conan Through 2018

Anyone else surprised by this? I used to LOVE Conan. I even stayed up late and watched it for a bit after it started on TBS. But I fell out of it. And honestly, Fallon took over. You rarely see funny Conan bits floating around Facebook the next morning. I don't even hear what guests are coming on Conan anymore. Dont' even read any news about it online or in EW or in TB Guide. I kind of forgot he even existed.

In fact, was reading in this week's TV Guide about the Emmy's and NBC's submissions – they are submitting the Tonight Show with Fallon, with Leno and Late Night with Seth Myers for Emmy consideration. Among the other contenders, TV Guide mentioned Daily Show, Colbert Report, @midnight, even Inside Amy Schumer. But even among 10 or so shows listed, Conan didn't even make the cut.

Is a renewal really the best choice for TBS? Does anyone watch Conan anymore?


UPDATED: Fall Pilot Review: Fox Drama

GOTHAM: The origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon, a detective with the Gotham City Police Department, and his battle with the villains who made Gotham City famous. Cast: Ben McKenzie (Det. James Gordon); Donal Logue (Harvey Bullock); Jada Pinkett Smith (Fish Mooney).
Blame it on SHIELD, Arrow and Once Upon a Time, but there are quite a few superhero and fairytale pilots this year (this one, ABC's Galavant, NBC's Constantine). I would write this one off, but the trailer was released recently and actually looks decent. My only concern is keeping it from becoming too CW-y.

BACKSTROM: Based on renowned Swedish criminologist and novelist Leif G.W. Persson’s hit series of books of the same name, the series centers on Det. Everett Backstrom, an offensive, irascible detective as he tries and fails to change his self-destructive behavior. Cast: Rainn Wilson (Backstrom); Dennis Haysbert (John Almond).
Uh, Rainn Wilson in a drama? After watching the trailer, it is basically just Rake but a detective instead of a lawyer.
EMPIRE: A family drama set in the world of a hip-hop empire featuring original and current music. Cast: Terrence Howard (Lucious Lyon); Taraji P. Henson (Cookie Lyon); Jussie Smollet (Jamal Lyon).
Nashville didn't have enough rapping in it. Really disappointed that there wasn't a bit of music/singing/rapping/audible piano playing featured in the trailer....
HIEROGLYPH: Set in ancient Egypt, where fantasy and reality intertwine, Hieroglyph follows a notorious thief who is plucked from prison to serve the Pharoah, navigating palace intrigue, seductive concubines, criminal underbellies and even a few divine sorcerers. Cast: Max Brown; John Rhys-Davies (Vocifer); Reece Ritchie (Shai).
This one surprised me. As a huge (HUGE!) Ten Commandments fan, I love all things Egypt. And I've got to admit – that time period hasn't been done before on TV, that I can recall at least. But still. Seems weird, no? CANCELLED.
RED BAND SOCIETY: A group of teenagers meet as patients in the children’s wing of a hospital and become unlikely allies and friends in this comedic young soap. Cast: Octavia Spencer (Nurse Jackson); Dave Annable (Dr. Jack McAndrew).
A comedic young soap starring Spencer (44) and Annable (35). Hmm.
THE MIDDLE MAN: Set in ’60s Boston, the story follows Rudy MacAteer, an FBI agent charged with taking down the Italian mafia, and his confidential informant, Irish gangster Mickey Flood. As Rudy finds himself forced to bend the laws he pledged to enforce, the duo’s actions inadvertantly give rise to the Irish mob.
Though this one is not in contention for the fall (could be coming in the winter or spring season), they've got to be concerned that it is too much like failed series Vegas, Pan Am and Playboy Club, no? I know we all want the next Mad Men or Boardwalk Empire, but I'm really loosing faith that that will come on network TV.

Also excited to check out Gracepoint, and binge watch the series it is based on, Broadchurch.

UPDATED: Fall Pilot Review: Fox Comedy

Get ready for heavy-hitters here, people. Fox recruited quite the comedy line-up this fall – if only in talent alone. I mean, take a look at this first pilot's casting...
DEAD BOSS: Based on the British series, Dead Boss is a comedic mystery that finds overachiever Helen Stephens wrongfully convicted of murdering her boss and forced to rely on her train wreck of a sister to prove her innocence. Cast: Jane Krakowski (Helen); Amy Sedaris (Mary); Rachel Dratch (Christine). Fox passed
CABOT COLLEGE: An all-female university in rural New Hampshire opens its doors to four men for the first time. Cast: Margaret Cho (Laura); Brandon Jones (Gerland). Cancelled
Like this concept, not a big Cho fan.
FATRICK: Patrick, a 30-something moving man and former fat kid, is forced to face the damage caused by years of being Fatrick; a chubby little kid just trying to survive. Cast: Marcia Cross; Zach Cregger (Patrick); Trevor Larcom (Young Patrick). 
Fox passed
For the record, this is one of TWO series about former fat people. The other was on NBC (Ellen More or Less). I feel weird about that.
NO PLACE LIKE HOME: Revolves around a mom who has been single for two decades and traumatizes her stunted 30-something son with a little surprise — she just got married and her new husband and his three teenage children are about to move in. Cast: Jane Kaczmarek (Carol); David James Elliott (Mike); Jon Heder (Richard). 
Fox passed
SOBER COMPANION: A charming but self-destructive attorney finds his world turned upside down when a court-appointed and highly unconventional sober companion takes control of his life. Cast: Justin Long; Nick Frost (Robert); Pete Davidson (Derek)
Also, check out these "straight to series" offerings:
LAST MAN ON EARTH (straight to series): Will Forte stars as the last man on earth.
MULANEY (straight to series): Follows an aspiring comedian coming of age under the influence of his boss, his roommates, and his neighbors. Cast: John Mulaney, Martin Short (Lou); Elliott Gould (Oscar); Nasim Pedrad (Jane).
WEIRD LONERS (straight to series): The story of four relationship-phobic people who are unexpectedly thrust into each other’s lives and form an unlikely bond in a Queens, New York townhouse. Cast: Zachary Knighton (Stosh); Becki Newton (Caryn); Nate Torrence (Eric).
Not surprised that Forte's got picked up, but am a bit surprised that Mulaney would get a full season (especially with that boring/obvious pilot. Looks more like Whitney or a CBS-worthy comedy than Fox), as well as Knighton/Newton/Torrence – who seem to be sitcom kyrptonite as of late (see: Happy Endings, FlashForward, Love Bites, Goodwin Games, Super Fun Night, Hello Ladies). Also, I'd selfishly like to see Knighton stay on Parenthood since he was JUST named headmaster of Max's school and all.

UPDATED: Fall Pilot Review: NBC Drama

CONSTANTINE: One of DC Comics most popular characters, master of the occult John Constantine, is brought to life. Constantine is struggling with his faith as he is haunted by the sins of his past but is suddenly thrust into the role of defending humanity from the gathering forces of darkness. Cast: Matt Ryan (Constantine), Lucy Griffiths (Liv); Charles Halford (Chas); Harold Perrineau (Manny).
Bring on one of the many superhero shows for 2014.
BABYLON FIELDS: The dead are reappearing in Babylon, N.Y. and lives are regained and families reunited — whether they like it or not. These newly regenerated bodies are healing faster and growing stronger than anyone else leading to the suspicion that they might be the next step in human evolution. Cast: Meagan Good (Janine Beltran); Skeet Ulrich (Father Harries and Graham); Kyle Schmid (Thomas Wunch); Virginia Madsen (Rhonda Wunch).
Soooo, like Resurrection?
ODYSSEY: Told in three disparate stories, this is the thrilling tale of families torn apart when a female Special Ops soldier in North Africa, a corporate lawyer, and a Wall Street activist each uncover the same conspiracy between a U.S. corporation, the government, and terrorism. Cast: Anna Friel (Odelle Ballard); Jake Robinson (Harrison Wolcott); Nate Mooney (Bob Offer); Daniella Pineda (Molly Simms); Elena Kampouris (Maya Drucker); Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Frank Majors); Treat Williams (Colonel Stephen Glen); Peter Facinelli (Peter Decker).
Yeah, okay. I'll try this.
TIN MEN: A psychological crime thriller set in the near future that focuses on a fugitive robot accused of first-degree murder who may hold the key to the future of human evolution, and the young female public defender forced to fight for his cause. Cast: Patrick Heusinger (Adam Sentry); Shaun Toub (David Dashiell); Ryun Yu (Ryuji Kitamura); Kristen Connolly (Katie Collier); Vondie Curtis-Hall (Jack Garrison).
Ugh. Enough with the robots. Almost Human and Intelligence both failed this year. Besides, this just sounds like another I, Robot rip-off.
ALLEGIANCE: This high-octane thriller revolves around the O’Connor family and their son, Alex, a decorated American war hero and CIA analyst who is a true patriot and loves his country and family. Unbeknownst to him, both of his parents and his sister are part of a dormant Russian sleeper cell that has just been reactivated. Once the parents get reluctantly pulled back in, the stakes rise they are coerced into spying on their own son and turning him against his country. Cast: Gavin Stenhouse (Alex O’Connor); Margarita Levieva (Natalie O’Connor); Hope Davis (Katya O’Connor); Alex Peters (Sarah O’Connor).
It's The Americans meets Homeland.
STATE OF AFFAIRS: A key CIA attaché (Katherine Heigl) counsels the president on high-stakes incidents around the world. She balances her intense political responsibilities with a complicated personal life. Cast: Katherine Heigl (Charleston Whitney Tucker); Cliff Chamberlain (Kurt Tannen), Leslie Odom, Jr (Mitchell); President Roberta Payton (Alfre Woodard).
You lost me at Katherine Heigl.

MYSTERIES OF LAURA: Based on a Spanish format, this procedural drama with a sharp sense of humor follows a quirky female homicide detective who juggles high-stakes crime as well as her ex-husband and a devilish set of twin boys. Cast: Debra Messing (Laura); Laz Alonso (Billy); Janina Gavankar (Detective Meredith Martinez); Josh Lucas (Jake).
At first I thought this was saying that Laura was Spanish and I was like, "Uh, Debra Messing is the best casting could do?" Then I realized I couldn't read. But hey, Josh Lucas.
THE SLAP: A complex family drama that explodes from one small incident where a man slaps another couple’s misbehaving child. This seemingly minor domestic dispute pulls the family apart, begins to expose long-held secrets, and ignites a lawsuit that challenges the core American values of all who are pulled into it.
That escalated quickly.
EMERALD CITY (miniseries): Based on the 14-book series that first created the wonderful, and treacherous, Land of Oz, Emerald City is a dramatic and modern reimagining of the tales that include lethal warriors, competing kingdoms, and the infamous wizard as we’ve never seen him before. A head-strong 20-year-old Dorothy Gale is unwittingly sent on an eye-opening journey that thrusts her into the center of an epic and bloody battle for the control of Oz. Cancelled
Can I just say – kudos to NBC just just picthing this as a mini-series! As other shows like Terra Nova, Revolution, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, Under the Dome could have / should have.

UPDATED: Fall Pilot Review: NBC Comedy

UNTITLED TINA FEY/ROBERT CARLOCK: Kimmy is rescued along with four other women from 15 years of living in a cult. After a Today show interview, she decides to return to start a new, wide-eyed life in New York City. Cast: Ellie Kemper; Tituss Burgess (Titus); Sara Chase (Cyndee); Lauren Adams (Gretchen).
Ellie Kemper definitely has the "wide-eyed" thing down, but I've got to admit – this was not the premise I was expecting for her / from Tina. UPDATE Moved to Netflix for March 2015

BAD JUDGE: A hard-living, sexually unapologetic woman (Kate Walsh) partakes in an edgy life that often clashes with the fact that she happens to be a judge in the San Bernardino Criminal Court system. Cast: Tone Bell (Edward), Theodore Barnes (Robby Shoemaker), Arden Myrin (Jenny), Mather Zickel (Gary), John Ducey (Tom)
Pretty sure people are just going to watch this for the "sexually unapologetic" Kate Walsh. Also, basically Rake with a judge instead of a lawyer. See also: Backstrom on Fox.

MARRY ME: A couple gets engaged, which they quickly realize it is harder than it looks. Cast: Casey Wilson (Annie); John Gemberling (Gil); Ken Marino (Jake); Tim Meadows (Kevin #1); Tymberlee Hill (Kay); Dan Bucatinsky (Kevin #2)
CASEY WILSON! PENNY HART! But seriously – most intriging thing about this is Kevin #1 and Kevin #2.
MISSION CONTROL: A workplace comedy set at Mission Control in 1965 as a strong woman butts heads with a macho astronaut and a too-cool-for-school former test pilot in the race to land on the moon. Cast: Malcolm Barrett (Arthur); Jonathan Slavin (Kriegel); Krysten Ritter (Dr. Mary Kendrick).
This, this is so random. I love it. AND CANCELLED.
LOVE IS RELATIVE: When her newly-divorced brother moves in, a wife and her husband start to see their marriage in a whole new way. Cast: Leslie Bibb (Rose); Utkarsh Ambudkar (Deepak); Barry Rothbart (Josh); Jason Jones (Nate).
Leslie Bibb is having a moment – with appearances on The Following and About A Boy – and I totally welcome it.
OLD SOUL: A young woman (Natasha Lyonne) is trying to find herself, but in the meantime she’s working as the aide to a group of opinionated elderly people. Cast: Natasha Lyonne (Nadia); Rita Moreno (Rita); Greta Lee (Alix); Nick Thune (Charlie); Ellen Burstyn (Eileen); Fred Willard (Hector).
Uh, I'm sorry. I stopped listening because Natasha Lyonne cannot be on this and OITNB at the same time. Not possible. Cancel it.
THE PRO: Set in and around a tennis and golf club, a former doubles champion (Rob Lowe) is reunited with his ex-partner after a public feud that left them both floundering in life. Cast: Rob Lowe (Ben); Rob Riggle (Bobby Welch); Colton Dunn (Lewis Mosely); Rosa Salazar (Jamie). NBC Passed. 
Double Rob.
ONE BIG HAPPY: When gay and straight best friends decide to have a baby together, things get complicated when one of them finds the love of their life. Cast: Nick Zano (Luke); Elisha Cuthbert (Lizzy); Brandon Smith (Marcus);Rebecca Corry (Leisha).
Oh, Nick Zano.
TWO TO GO: Laura and Kurt struggle through life as the last two single people in their group of friends. Cast: Christine Woods (Laura); Echo Kellum (Nick); Dana Delorenzo (Darcy).
Doubt this will work, but I'm rooting for the Looking/Go On and Ben and Kate alums.
MR. ROBINSON: A journeyman musician gets a job as a music teacher at a middle school. While teaching the kids everything from rock to the blues, he simultaneously learns how to put the school’s rules to the test. Cast: Craig Robinson; Ben Koldyke (Jimmy)
Love Craig... but worry this will be too School of Rock.

A to Z was left out my original review because it looked predicatble and because I think it's too early for people to watch The Mother fall in love again... with not Ted (and for the record, I don't even really watch HIMYM). But it actually looks kind of cute.

UPDATED: Fall Pilot Review: ABC Drama

DANGEROUS LIAISONS: The love and rivalry between two equally-matched, powerful socialites who play out their obsessive attraction and seduction of each other through their manipulation of others. Cast: Rufus Sewell (Philip); Katie Holmes (Ann); Elliot Knight (Leo); Oded Fehr (Anderson). ABC Passed. 
The next Revenge / Betrayal.
THE McKENNA FILES: In this character-driven procedural, a former convict turned big city criminologist is brought in to help local police crack a case involving a shocking string of disappearances. The chief detective she’s been hired to help is her father – and they haven’t talked in fifteen years. Cast: Jee Young Han (Chelsea); Meta Golding (Stacy); Erik Palladino (Cooper).
I just like how they call this a "character-driven procedural," like that makes it any different.
CLEMENTINE: A habitual criminal digs in to the mystery of her origins after she becomes the target of a group of zealots who fear she possesses latent supernatural abilities that she will one day harness for either profound good or monstrous evil.
Is this a SHIELD spin-off?
FOREVER: Doctor Henry Morgan is New York City’s star medical examiner. But what no one knows is Henry studies the dead for a reason—he is immortal. With the help of detective Jo Martinez, we will peel back the layers of Henry’s colorful and long life through their cases. Cast: Judd Hirsch (Abe); Ioan Gruffudd (Henry); Barbara Eve Harris (Lt. Marcia Roark); Alana de la Garza (Det. Jo Martinez).
Intrigued. Never heard that one before.
SEA OF FIRE: When three teenage girls in a small town star in an illicit film, it tears their families apart and leads to a disappearance, a murder, and a host of other secrets boiling under the surface of a close-knit community Cast: Jennifer Carpenter (Agent Leah Pierce); Jack Davenport (Sheriff Marty Kesowich); Lilli Birdsell (Laura Lee); Isabelle Cornish (Merel); Jeffrey Nordling (Rev. Bobby McAllister).
Like the untold Pretty Little Liars story.

 Overall at ABC, lots of crime, law and punishment. And every drama is some mix of lies/betrayal/truth/mystery. See more at http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/04/21/complete-fall-2014-pilot-list/2/

And from Shonda Rhimes, the next Scandal – How To Get Away With Murder:

And this show, American Crime looks intense. Possibly what the Crash TV show couldn't be.

For the midseason, they have the show The Whispers which looks f-ing terrifying.

Also the show, Secrets and Lies, is coming midseason and is basically the same premise as Gracepoint on Fox. And stars Juliette Lewis, who is also on Wayward Pines midseason on Fox. Deja vous?

UPDATED: Fall Pilot Review: ABC Comedy

IRREVERSIBLE: The comedy centers on an eccentric and self-absorbed couple and the trials and tribulations they often bring upon themselves. Cast: David Schwimmer (Andy) Iris Bahr (Julie) Jessica Knappett (Sarah). 
So, basically just Friends again?
AN AMERICAN EDUCATION: A remake of British comedy Bad Education, the project centers on British transplant Alfie Wickers, an unorthodox teacher who loves his students but his naïve enthusiasm and unconventional methods put him at odds with the test-obsessed administrators. Cast: Jack Whitehall (Alfie), Rosie Perez (Rita), Brittany Snow (Sarah); David Mares (Rodney); Devin Ratray (Jeff); Phil Morris (Principal). 
I'll watch anything that Brittany Snow is in. That's a promise. Side note... did that Bad Teacher show ever make it on TV?
UNTITLED BRIAN GALLIVAN PROJECT: An overworked father who dreams of a better life for his family decides to uproot them from the city and move to New Hampshire where they open a group of low rent tourist cottages. Cast: Molly Shannon (Cathleen); Shiloh Nelson (Phyllis); Tessa Albertson (Veronica); Ty Parker (Nathan); Charlie Kilgore (Lazy); Connor Kalopsis (Elliott); Paul F Tompkins (Teddy). 
Actually sounds like a promsing concept with stories of the guests, running the resort etc.
DAMAGED GOODS: Comedy about the sexual politics that have changed between men and women in this post-feminist era. Cast: Steve Talley (Jason); Justin Hartley (Tim); Ben Lawson (Michael); Kellee Stewart (Betsy); Anna Camp (Nicole); Kyle Jones (Kyle). 
This is either the next Happy Endings or Mixology. Sadly, my bet is on the latter.

FAR EAST ORLANDO Fresh Off the Boat: It’s the ’90s and hip-hop loving Eddie is growing up in suburban Orlando, raised by an immigrant father who is obsessed with all things American and an immigrant mother who is often bewildered by white culture. With his father owning and operating an All-American Steakhouse chain, this loving family of FOB (“fresh off the boat”) Taiwanese Americans try to live the American dream while still maintaining their cultural identity and sense of family. Based on chef Eddie Huang’s memoir. Cast: Randall Park (Mr. Huang); Constance Wu (Mrs. Huang); Forrest Wheeler (Freddy Huang). 
I think they meant to submit this last season (ie The Goldbergs, Surviving Jack).

GALAVANT: This fairy-tale musical centers on handsome Prince Galavant and his quest for revenge against the king who stole his one true love. Cast: Joshua Sasse (Galavant); Vinnie Jones (Gareth); Karen David (Isabella); Mallory Jansen (Madalena). 
This is a comedy? This is being described as The Princess Bride with music. Which sounds AWESOME. Looks hilarious. Trailer reminds me of Robin Hood: Men in Tights.

UNTITLED JEFF LOWELL Manhattan Love Story: A romantic comedy that exposes the unfiltered internal monologues of a young couple embarking on a new relationship. Cast: Analeigh Tipton (Dana); Jake McDorman (Peter); Jade Catta-Preta (Amy); Nicolas Wright (David); Kurt Fuller (William). 
I've always been Team Evan! But seriously, I really think Jake McDorman proved himself this past season on Shameless and hopefully more good things come his way, though I fear he's the next George Stults.
UNTITLED KEVIN HART PROJECT: Based on Kevin Hart’s life and stand-up, this comedy asks the question: “Can a man and woman ever truly be friends… after they’re divorced?” Cast: Kevin Hart; Romany Malco (Derek); Bresha Webb (Lorraine); Jayson Blair (Chip); Jeff Ross (Stu). ABC Passed. 
Kevin Hart is so hot right now.
SAINT FRANCIS: A blue-collar, no-nonsense, Long Island Cop and family man butts heads with the modern, liberal world when his 29-year-old sister gets pregnant out of wedlock. Cast: Michael Imperioli (Francis); Paget Brewster (Stephanie); Henry Simmons (Pete). ABC Passed
I actually kind of like the idea of an adult pregnancy instead of teen (ie Mom, Welcome to the Family, every other "family" show on TV...).

SELFIE: Comedy inspired by My Fair Lady tells the story of a self-obsessed 20-something woman who is more concerned with “likes” than being liked. After suffering a very public and humiliating breakup, she becomes the subject of a viral video and suddenly has more social media “followers” than she ever imagined — but for all the wrong reasons. She enlists the help of a marketing expert at her company to help repair her tarnished image. Cast: Karen Gillen (Eliza); Tim Peper (Ethan); Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Charmonique); John Cho (Henry). 
I'm actually surprised it has taken so long for a show like this to be proposed. Plus, John Cho is on my list of actors who I think deserve a good TV show. But could the lead actress be ANY more unlikeable? I kind of hate it already.
THE WINKLERS: Based on the Winklers lives, this multi-cam comedy centers on an emotionally reserved construction worker who unexpectedly ends up living with oversharing in-laws. Cast: Henry Winkler (Henry); Eva Amurri (Emily); Domenick Lombardozzi (Jack)l Josh Sussman (Jonah); Judith Light (Tita). ABC Passed. 
Uh, was this supposed to be on CBS? Also Judith Light cannot leave Dallas (unless in a body bag. That would be acceptable.)

Overall, I applaud ABC's comedy casting. Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Kevin Hart.... and Henry Winkler and Judith Light (?). See more at http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/04/21/complete-fall-2014-pilot-list/2/

Fall Pilot Review: CBS Comedy

Sitcom descriptions never sound that appealing to me, especially when I think of what CBS will do to butcher them. However,  I think George Stults and Matthew Perry deserve to be on TV shows that don't get cancelled.
CUZ-BROS: A successful, suave ladies man’s perfect life gets turned upside down when his mess of a cousin needs a place to stay. Cast: Geoff Stults (Nick); Debra Jo Rupp (Merle); Andrea Anders (Stacey).  
THE ODD COUPLE: A half-hour multi-camera comedy pilot based on Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple. Cast: Matthew Perry (Oscar Madison); Thomas Lennon (Felix); Wendell Pierce (Teddy).  
See more at http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/04/21/complete-fall-2014-pilot-list/ 


UPDATED: Fall Pilot Review: CBS Drama

"BATTLE CREEK: When two detectives with very different world views are teamed up, they must answer the question: is cynicism, guile, and deception enough to clean up the semi-mean streets of Battle Creek, Michigan in the face of a complete lack of resources; or is the exact opposite true – it takes naïveté, trust and a boatload of resources? Cast: Josh Duhamel (Milton Chamberlain); Dean Winters (Det. Russ Agnew); Kal Penn (Det. Fontanelle)." 
That cast though. Is it hot in here?
"MADAM SECRETARY: About the personal and professional life of a maverick female Secretary of State as she drives international diplomacy, wrangles office politics, and balances a complex family life. Cast: Tea Leoni (Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord); Tim Daly (Henry McCord); Bebe Neuwirth (Nadine Tolliver)."
Buuuuuuut Tim Daly is on The Mindy Project. (?!?!)
"UNTITLED CUSACK/McCABE/ELMORE/CAVELL PROJECT: Series set in the world of Wall Street power and money. Charlie Cox (Jackson Holliday); Maggie Grace (Jamie Fields); David Morse (J.D. Conklin); John Cusack (guest star)."
OWEN! But why is this an "Untitled Cusack Project" if he's only a guest star. Predicted spoiler alert - he dies in the first couple episodes.

Just a note... of the nine dramas proposed, there are only two that aren't politics/crime/terrorism focused. See more at http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/04/21/complete-fall-2014-pilot-list/
