Over the next week we will be hearing about the pilots picked up at the various broadcast networks. Today, Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Fox has picked up four drama series and two comedies. Among the pick ups is comedy Making History and drama The Exorcist.
MAKING HISTORY (single camera)
STUDIO: 20th Century Fox TV
TEAM: Julius Sharpe (w, ep), Phil Lord (ep), Chris Miller (ep), Seth Cohen (ep), Jared Hess (d)
LOGLINE: Chronicles three friends from two different centuries as they try to balance the thrill of time travel with the mundane concerns of their present-day lives. Two shows in one, it’s both a rollicking historical adventure, and a contemporary comedy about love, friendship and trying to fit in to an increasingly complex and impersonal world.
CAST: Adam Pally, Leighton Meester, Yassir Lester
STUDIO: 20th Century Fox TV/Morgan Creek Productions
TEAM: Jeremy Slater (w, ep), James Robinson (ep), David Robinson (ep), Barbara Wall (ep), Rolin Jones (ep), Rupert Wyatt (d)
LOGLINE: More than four decades after the Academy Award-nominated film solidified itself as the greatest horror movie ever made, The Exorcist returns in series format as a propulsive psychological thriller following two very different priests tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession.
CAST: Alfonso Herrera, Ben Daniels, Geena Davis, Brianne Howey, Hannah Kasulka, Kurt Egyiawan
