"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/
