I know most in this thread don't go for sit-coms but...
I've been working on íROB! and it is one of the funniest shows I've ever worked on. I hope it translates to the TV. Give it a few episodes.
It premieres tomorrow night on CBS @ 8:30.

NBC Picks Up Pilots Midnight Sun and Do No Harm from Universal TV | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
I see the event far too much in those credits...does NBC ever learn?NBC has picked up two drama pilots from its sister studio, Peter Traugott’s new Universal TV production company, and while they both sound more "thriller" than horror, one seems to have a "Twin Peaks" vibe and the other sounds like yet another spin on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde so we figured we'd mention them and then see how Dread-worthy they turn out to be.
Here's the breakdown per Deadline:
"Midnight Sun", based on the Israeli series "Timrot Ashan", aka "Pillars of Smoke", is a thriller following the mysterious disappearance of a group living on a commune in Alaska. The Alaska setting is appropriate given that the original series is being described as "Twin Peaks" meets "Northern Exposure" meets "Lost". "Midnight Sun" centers on a female FBI cult specialist who starts an investigation that uncovers a larger conspiracy. Lisa Zwerling ("The Event", "FlashForward") wrote the adaptation and is executive producing the pilot with Peter Traugott ("Ringer", "Samantha Who?"), Rachel Kaplan, and Alon Aranya.
"Do No Harm" is a medical drama about a brilliant neurosurgeon who wrestles with his dangerous alter-ego that threatens to wreak havoc on his personal and professional life. David Schulner ("The Event") wrote the script and is executive producing with Traugott and Kaplan.
Like we said above, should either or both of these potential series wind up on the horror side of the fence, we'll keep you posted on their progress. One thing's for sure - it looks like NBC is taking its success with "Grimm" to heart and focusing a lot more closely on genre(ish) projects.
David Nevins Talks the End of DEXTER, HOMELAND Season 2, NURSE JACKIE, HOUSE OF LIES, and More
Very interested to see if they can reach the heights that season 1 hit.Season 1 of Homeland is going to be a tough act to follow. What can you say about Season 2, and whether it will pick up right where it left off or whether it might go forward in time a bit?
NEVINS: Well, I wouldn’t necessarily assume that Season 2 begins the day after Season 1 ended. I do know some things about it. It’s been an interesting show in that I read a lot of, “Well, last week was good. Where are they going to go now? How are they going to top it?” And, I like that. I think it’s justified skepticism. With Season 1, I think they pulled it off. Most people seemed to really like the finale. I think there is a general attitude of, “Well, Season 1 worked. What the hell are they going to do in Season 2?” And, I think the writers have some very clever answers for that. I have to say that it is very fun to work on that kind of show, where people are wanting to know what’s going on, and you’re just trying to stay one step ahead.
Have you seen any full scripts, or have you been made aware of the overall direction?
NEVINS: No. I can’t even say I know the overall. Alex [Gansa] and Howard [Gordon] and I talk all the time, and there are a lot of what-ifs. I’m sure they know more than I know, but to get it right, you’ve got to take your time. One thing that I know will be central next year is that Brody (Damian Lewis) and Carrie (Claire Danes) have only just begun. There’s an enormous amount that’s unresolved. One way or the other, that will be a central issue in Season 2. I’ll leave it at that.
Runkle giving the babysitter the tissue he used to wipe himself was awesome.
Alcatraz was awesome. Ep 2 was Bad Robot goodness.
CBS Greenlights New Contemporary Sherlock Holmes Series ELEMENTARY
The contemporary series Sherlock, which takes the iconic detective and brings him into modern day Britain just garnered a third season, but now CBS is going to try and bring the classic literary character to the United States with a new series called Elementary. THR reports the network has just given the greenlight to the series from writer Robert Doherty who will also executive produce with Sarah Timberman (Unforgettable) and Carl Beverly. There aren’t any details on the series except that in will see Sherlock living in New York City. That could very well mean this won’t be a British detective anymore. Honestly, I can’t say I’m all that thrilled with the prospect since the BBC has delivered such a stellar contemporary series already, but we’ll see what happens.
