    Saturday Night Live alum Will Forte is set as the lead in Fox’s single-camera comedy pilot Rebounding. The project, written/executive produced by Joe Port and Joe Wiseman, executive produced by Steve Levitan and directed by Jason Winer, is an uplifting comedy about Danny (Forte), a man recovering from the death of his fiancé with the help of the idiots on his pickup basketball team. Forte, repped by UTA and Mosaic, is now seen in Tim And Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie and has three movies coming out this summer: Rock Of Ages, That’s My Boy and Neighborhood Watch. He recurs on 30 Rock and Up All Night.

    Re: 2012-2013 Pilot Season

    James Pumphrey and Ravi Patel have been cast in Mandy Moore’s ABC comedy pilot directed by Shawn Levy. The single-camera project centers on newlyweds Annie (Moore) and Ben (Nelson Franklin), who get the opportunity of a lifetime to run a hip, new restaurant in Annie’s hometown bringing her closer to her needy and high-maintenance family. Pumphrey will play Annie’s younger brother Zach, a charming free spirit or free loader depending on your point of view. Pumphrey, repped by CAA and Principato-Young, stars in Millenium’s High Road and will next be seen in the Josh Schwartz-directed Fun Size for Paramount. Patel, repped by Talentworks and Seven Summits, will play a self-made millionaire who hires Annie and Ben at his restaurant. He will be shooting Dylan Kidd’s Get A Job next month.

    Brett Gelman has been added to the cast of the ABC comedy pilot Awesometown, about Dusty (Ben Rappaport), a twentysomething guy who, after a divorce, moves into an apartment shared by his co-worker Andrew (Nick Kocher) and roommate Oliver (James Earl III). Gelman, repped by CAA and Mosaic, will play a gay co-worker of Andrew’s, a decent, easy-going, likeable guy.

    Mindy Kaling’s untitled comedy pilot for Fox already has one good thing going for it; Mindy Kaling. Some star power has been added to the mix, as Saturday Night Live star Bill Hader and The Office’s Ed Helms are apparently both signed on for guest roles in the pilot.

    Kaling’s pilot will have her playing an OB/GYN who’s trying to juggle her personal and professional life. Entertainment Weekly posted the news, stating that Helms, who plays Andy on The Office, in which Kaling not only stars but is also an executive producer, will play Dennis, a Wall Street analyst and potential love interest for Kaling’s character Mira in the Fox pilot. Meanwhile, Hader will play Kaling’s ex-boyfriend Tom, who’s described as “upbeat, humble, almost infinitely appealing boy-next-door type who has such perfect chemistry with Kaling’s character that it feels nearly too good to be true. Mira sees him as the living breathing equivalent of an early 80’s Tom Hanks.”

    “Guest role” is the operative word here, lest anyone fear that this news means Ed Helms is planning to leave The Office, or that Hader is set to depart SNL. Of course, that is a possibility, especially for Helms, who according to Deadline, has not signed a deal (yet) to return to The Office next season. While the part of a guy who goes on a blind date with Kaling's character doesn't sound like a huge role, especially considering Mira is described as a "Bridget Jones type," which implies that single-life plays a factor in her story, perhaps the guest spot could be developed into something more, should things work out for Kaling's pilot (and not work out for The Office). The comedy already sounds funnier with Hader and Helms on board.

    James Pumphrey's role has now been recast

    Pumphrey can't catch a break! Last years pilot season he was originally cast as Maya Rudolph's assistant in "Up All Night" before they ended up rewriting his part as female and changed it to the "Missy" character.

    The showrunners for Rebel Wilson's "Super Fun Night" pilot are the two guys who created "Work It" for ABC. Hmmm....

    Re: 2012-2013 Pilot Season

    First early buzz report on the pilots in consideration for next season:

    http://www.deadline.com/2012/04/prim...uzz-edition-2/

    NBC- Comedy-wise, ANIMAL KINGDOM is hot, as is White House family comedy 1600 PENN, despite a last-minute recasting, as well as the Matthew Perry starrer GO ON and Greg Daniels’ FRIDAY NIGHT DINNER. The network also is high on a couple of multi-camera comedies, LADYFRIENDS and the untitled JIMMY FALLON, with TABLE FOR THREE also looking encouraging so far. The Ryan Murphy/Ali Adler blended family comedy THE NEW NORMAL is still shooting but, with the auspices involved, it is considered a strong contender. NBC brass seem to like the SARAH SILVERMAN pilot, which had an early order, but Silverman is considered an acquired taste, so a lot will depend on testing.

    FOX- Off-cycle pilot LITTLE BROTHER, whose plug almost got pulled after difficulties casting one of the leads, is making early waves on the comedy side. I hear Fox brass are impressed by John Stamos and his chemistry with TJ Miller. Also getting solid early buzz is the comedy EL JEFE, about a privileged young man moving in with his Latina nanny, and the MINDY KALING medical office comedy, mostly because of its star/creator Kaling. I’ve been hearing some mixed early buzz on half-hour pilots LIKE FATHER and LIVING LOADED, but with A-list auspices Bill Lawrence and Rob McElhenney behind them, judgement has to be held until they are completed.

    CBS- On the comedy side, after a casting tweak after the table read, PARTNERS looks good, while reaction to DORF/FALCONE has been mixed. Most of CBS’ comedy pilots are very late, so not much intel here.

    ABC- On the comedy side, PRAIRIE DOGS, the raunchy AWESOMETOWN and Claudia Lonow’s family comedy HOW TO LIVE WITH YOUR PARENTS FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE are getting strong early buzz. Also, Reba McEntire is a big audience draw, making her sitcom MALIBU COUNTRY an automatic contender.

    Re: 2012-2013 Pilot Season

    Second Deadline pilot update

    FOX-The biggest move at the network over the last week has been the ascent of REBOUNDING, Joe Port and Joe Wiseman’s uplifting comedy about a man (Will Forte) recovering from the death of his fiancee with the help of his buddies. The pilot, which has Modern Family‘s co-creator Steve Levitan as an executive producer and helmer Jason Winer as director, has been testing very well and is red-hot. Also hot on the comedy side at the network is the MINDY KALING medical office ensemble half-hour. Additionally, in contention are culture-clash comedy EL JEFE, and two adult sibling half-hours: LITTLE BROTHER, which underwent minor reshoots, and THE GOODWIN GAMES. The network will be stocking up on comedies as I hear it is looking to make the two-hour midseason comedy block experiment a permanent element on the schedule next season.

    NBC- A return to the glory days of Friends, Seinfeld and Frasier? It is shaping up to be a strong year for multi-camera comedies at NBC, which was already high on the format in the pilot pickup stage. Early standouts, the untitled KARI LIZER and JIMMY FALLON projects continue to look good (through reaction to FALLON has been more mixed), with two other multi-camera comedies, TABLE FOR THREE and DOWNWARDLY MOBILE also tracking well early on. Among single-camera offerings, White House family comedy 1600 PENN, Greg Daniels’ FRIDAY NIGHT DINNER and SAVE ME are hot, with ANIMAL KINGDOM, GO ON and NEXT CALLER in contention. Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler’s much anticipated THE NEW NORMAL is yet to be delivered, while early pilot ISABEL is a rare family-friendly comedy that NBC could air at 8 PM.

    ABC- On the comedy side, Claudia Lonow’s HOW TO LIVE WITH YOUR PARENTS is gaining momentum. I hear ABC brass also are high on Judy Greer in her pilot AMERICAN JUDY, and like Reba McEntire and Mandy Moore who also topline half-hour pilots. PRAIRIE DOGS and the off-cycle DAN FOGELMAN also are in contention. Additionally, ABC topper Paul Lee has been high on the raunchy AWESOMETOWN, which has encountered testing issues, so the jury is out on that one. ONLY FOOLS AND HORSES has been quiet, though I hear the British original is a favorite of Brit Lee.

    CBS- Max Mutchnick and David Kohan seem to have finally nailed the concept that they have been passionate about for years as it reflects their real-life relationship, with their pilot PARTNERS tracking very strong. I hear the DORF/FALCONE and LOUIS CK/SPIKE FERESTEN comedies turned out better than expected (though it’s unclear if that will be enough to snag a series order). The NICK STOLLER project looks solid; however, being single-camera, the question is where it would fit in CBS’ comedy lineup, dominated by multi-camera sitcoms.

    No mention of Sarah Silverman. Maybe too edgy for NBC?

    Re: 2012-2013 Pilot Season

    Guess this is the first official pickup for next season.

    http://www.deadline.com/2012/04/nbc-...-on-to-series/

    NBC has picked up comedy pilot Go On to series with a 13-episode order. The project brings back to NBC’s primetime former Friends star Matthew Perry and co-showrunner Scott Silveri. (Will they return to the Thursday 8 PM slot?) Perry stars in and co-executive produces Go On, a single-camera project written by Silveri and directed by Todd Holland. Produced by Universal TV, it centers on an irreverent yet charming sportscaster (Perry) who, trying to move on from a loss, finds surprising solace from the members of his mandatory support group. The series hails from Holland and Karey Burke’s production company Dark Toy, which just re-upped its overall deal at Universal TV. Silveri, Holland and Burke executive produce. The cast of the pilot also includes Laura Benanti, Julie White, Suzy Nakamura, Allison Miller and Khary Payton. The early pickup for Go On will allow the show to start staffing right away and get its pick of available writers. The move may also put pressure on the other networks to start picking up pilots they believe in so they can start locking in writers too.

    This sounds like the last terrible show Matthew Perry did, also I hope he isn't a big enough egomaniac to want to be on at Thursdays at 8, that means Community has even less of a chance of coming back next season.

    Re: 2012-2013 Pilot Season

    Moving Community away from Thursdays at 8 PM would be the best thing to ever happen to the show. It's maybe the toughest timeslot for a comedy right now, as Big Bang isn't going to stop being a huge hit any time soon. So, while the Matthew Perry show may not be very good, it certainly has a better shot of being a self-starter in the 8 PM timeslot than Community has proven not to be (and the Perry show can help out whatever show they put at 8:30, whether its Community, Parks, 30 Rock, etc). Plus, with Comedy Central recently signing a syndication deal with Community, I don't think it will be getting canceled. I think it will be staying put, for at least one more season.

    CBS on Friday kicked off the next stage in the pilot season ritual — the network screenings, where a large pool of network executives weigh in on this year’s crop of pilots. The rest of the broadcast networks will follow suit next week when we will start getting a better picture of how the contenders for a spot on the schedule for next season stack up. For now, here is what we have been hearing on the various pilots based on early reactions.

    FOX- On the comedy side, the UNTITLED MINDY KALING female doctor half-hour appears to be headed to Fox’s comedy block as a possible companion to New Girl. BEN FOX IS MY MANNY, a late delivery after it replaced its lead after the table read, reportedly got thumbs-up from Fox brass after they just saw it for the first time. The stronger than expected showing for the pilot, about a guy working as manny for his sister, shakes up the sibling comedy race at Fox, which includes early standout LITTLE BROTHER, which has lost some momentum but remains solid, and GOODWIN GAMES, which also came out OK. Of the others, REBOUNDING and EL JEFE are still in serious contention, while buzz has been just OK on PRODIGY/BULLY, mixed on LET IT GO and not so good on LIKE FATHER and LIVING LOADED.

    ABC- On the comedy side, Claudia Lonow’s HOW TO LIVE WITH YOUR PARENTS and the Reba McEntire starrer MALIBU COUNTRY are hot as ABC is once again considering expanding comedy programming to Fridays to restore the network’s TGIF block. Early entry, alien family DAN FOGELMAN comedy, has support within the network. The two pilots based on British formats, ONLY FOOLS & HORSES and RED VAN MAN, appear to have a shot, along with PRAIRIE DOGS. Of the two “girl” comedies, AMERICAN JUDY starring Judy Greer and UNTITLED MANDY MOORE, Judy seems to have the edge at the moment. UNTITLED KARI LIZER is behind because of star Mary McCormack’s schedule but had a good taping. AWESOMETOWN has cooled off.

    NBC- Comedy-wise, the Ryan Murphy-Ali Adler blended family single-camera project THE NEW NORMAL has been eying an early pickup to join recently ordered to series GO ON starring Matthew Perry.* Other single-camera pilots in serious contention to join Go On are White House family comedy 1600 PENN, which tested very well, as well as FRIDAY NIGHT DINNER, which didn’t test well but comes from Greg Daniels and stars Tony Shalhoub and Allison Janney. Other single-camera comedies getting positive buzz are SAVE ME and ANIMAL KINGDOM, while UNTITLED HILARY WINSTON and SARAH SILVERMAN are not doing that well and NEXT CALLER has been quiet. On the multi-camera front, DADDY’s GIRL and DILFS are strong, with UNTITLED KARI LIZER and DOWNWARDLY MOBILE also in contention although the latter seems to be cooling off.

    CBS- On the comedy side, the biggest question is whether CBS will launch its first single-camera comedy series in four years. The single-camera NICK STOLLER pilot is tracking very well and could go with either HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, which has a single-camera feel, or THE BIG BANG THEORY. If the network once again opts to go with all multi-camera new comedies, this could send a message to the creative community that it is not as committed to the single-camera genre as it says it is. On the multi-camera side, early frontrunner PARTNERS continues to do well, with LOUIS CK/SPIKE FERESTEN, DORF/FALCONE and BERLANTI/MALINS all in the mix and SUPER FUN NIGHT getting mixed reaction.

    Re: 2012-2013 Pilot Season

    * What this means is that NBC is planning to maybe launch some of these shows in August, before the TV season officially starts.

    NBC’s new Matthew Perry comedy series Go On and returning drama Grimm, already earmarked for an early launch immediately following the network coverage of the London Olympics, may be joined by two other new comedies, the Anne Heche starrer Save Me and the Ryan Murphy/Ali Adler blended family half-hour The New Normal. The August series launches are part of NBC’s strategy to take advantage of the monster promotional platform the Olympics provide.

    Re: 2012-2013 Pilot Season

    TV By the Numbers has Parks & Recreation and The Office in the "certain to be renewed" column; 30 Rock, Community, and Whitney as "more likely to be renewed than cancelled"; and "Up All Night" as a "toss-up" (surprising, I thought Up All Night was doing better than Whitney).

    They actually have "Best Friends Forever" as "cancelled", I'm not sure if that's actually official yet or just their prediction.

    Re: 2012-2013 Pilot Season

    Some bad news, guys.

    http://www.deadline.com/2012/05/prim...t-list-update/

    NBC- About halfway through the broadcast networks’ screenings this week, it doesn’t look like there have been major surprises, with most early frontrunners solidifying their positions. NBC, which is looking to launch a number of series in August, right after the end of its coverage of the Summer Olympics, has been moving the fastest, picking up the first pilot to series, the Matthew Perry-starring single-camera comedy GO ON, and giving several others permission to make staffing offers. In addition to single-camera comedies THE NEW NORMAL and SAVE ME, I hear also allowed to begin a hiring process are the Jimmy Fallon-produced multi-camera comedy GUYS WITH KIDS and J.J. Abrams/Eric Kripke’s action drama REVOLUTION, which had been very quiet after a late start. We might see more series pickups today as there is a rumor this morning that the network may order as many as three new series before the day is over. (UPDATE: That rumor turned out to be bogus, no NBC series pickups today.) Also going strong on the comedy side at NBC is White House single-camera family comedy 1600 PENN as well as Greg Daniels’ FRIDAY NIGHT DINNER despite middling testing. Single-camera ANIMAL KINGDOM is still in contention along with several multi-camera comedies, though it seems like NBC brass have somewhat cooled off on the format: the UNTITLED KARI LIZER, DADDY’S GIRL and DOWNWARDLY MOBILE. Meanwhile, SARAH SILVERMAN is a very long shot.

    This sucks about Sarah's show, but at least NBC came to the same conclusion that I did earlier this week about how multi-camera sitcoms are not the direction they need to be going in.

    FOX- The UNTITLED MINDY KALING comedy pilot continues its march towards Fox‘s schedule as a potential companion to New Girl. Late bloomer NED FOX IS MY MANNY also appears likely to snag a series order, along with the Steve Levitan-produced REBOUNDING. Several other Fox comedy pilots are fighting for a spot: the network’s other two adult sibling comedies besides Ned Fox, LITTLE BROTHER and GOODWIN GAMES, as well as EL JEFE and PRODIGY/BULLY.

    ABC- On the comedy side, there are no major standouts. Claudia Lonow’s HOW TO LIVE WITH YOUR PARENTS and the Reba McEntire starrer MALIBU COUNTRY are solid, with AMERICAN JUDY, UNTITLED MANDY MOORE, ONLY FOOLS & HORSES, RED VAN MAN, PRAIRIE DOGS and UNTITLED DAN FOGELMAN all very much in contention. It is still early on the UNTITLED KARI LIZER, which had a solid taping, while feedback on AWESOMETOWN has been mixed.

    CBS- On the comedy side, Max Mutchnick and David Kohan’s PARTNERS is strong, as is the NICK STOLLER comedy, with the BERLANTI/MALINS quietly gaining momentum. The MARTIN LAWRENCE comedy was a very late order and has not been seen yet but early buzz has been positive.

    Re: 2012-2013 Pilot Season

    UPDATE: I hear Greg Daniels’ comedy pilot FRIDAY NIGHT DINNER too has been given permission to start making staffing offers. But I’ve learned that those offers are backed by Daniels’ veteran NBC series The Office, meaning that the writer-producers signed for FND would segue to The Office if the pilot doesn’t go.
