Re: Pilots - Updated 4/10


It's Reboot time at CBS as their Magnum P.I. reboot is considered a lock at this point, Another Lock appears to be God Friended Me. The Cagney and Lacey reboot also looked OK according to a number of sources but isn't a favorite right now
L.A. Confidential has scored some votes but is a bit darker than the usual CBS line up so there is buzz they may make the move to CBS All Access. On the Comedy side the untitled Austen Earl and Tim McAuliffe is expected to be picked up, Welcome to the Neighborhood and Fam are also both in the mix for pick up

Early favorites Murder and Red Line, as well as the comedy History of Them, have cooled off a bit at CBS
