Wow. This is a pretty strong development season by ABC. I don’t quite see a How to Get Away With Murder, but there’s not a lot of obvious failed pilots either. I think the real question comes down to what brand identity ABC wants to create. Do they go with more female skewing shows that Shonda has proven are ratings winners? Do they go with programming generally more fit for cable, like Kings and Prophets and LA Crime? Or do they go with go a thriller, Runner?
My track record in drama is considerably worse than comedy. So reader beware. But my picks for a greenlight are: The Advocate, The Catch, Quantico and Runner.
