Re: Pilots - Updated 4/30


The Follow is the full list of ABC Pilots, The Standouts so far appear to be Grand Hotel and A Million Little Things on the Drama side with a couple untitled shows from Tim Doyle and Justin Noble leading the comedies along with sitcoms Single Parents and Alyson Hannigan's Man of the House. The Biggest surprise I'm hearing is that the Greatest American Hero reboot is likely not going to be picked up at this point despite the early buzz and the casting of New Girl's Hannah Simone
