THE SKED 2013 UPFRONTS: CW Promo – “Star-Crossed”

Posted May 16, 2013 by Mitch Salem

  The final bit of Upfronts material released by CW is a brief clip from its midseason series STAR-CROSSED, about an alien and a human in love. A group of nervous, ostracized teens (presumably the aliens) are bused into a high school, and guy alien locks eyes with girl human, and the whole world changes, […]

THE SKED 2013 UPFRONTS: CW Promo – “The 100″

Posted May 16, 2013 by Mitch Salem

  We have a short clip from CW’s midseason series THE 100, about a group of teens returning to a post-apocalyptic Earth. Our heroine, it seems, is Octavia, the rebellious standout in the (as usual for CW, very pretty) group.  She also appears to be the only one with a living relative, her brother.  The […]

Posted May 16, 2013 by Mitch Salem

  CW has released a :30 promo and a little more than a minute of REIGN, the teen Mary, Queen of Scots soap that will have the showcase spot on its schedule next fall, Thursday 9PM after The Vampire Diaries.  Here’s what we’ve got: Promo Clip Well, there’s Mary all right, and there’s Francis, whom […]

THE SKED 2013 UPFRONTS: CW Promo – “The Tomorrow People”

Posted May 16, 2013 by Mitch Salem

  CW has released a mix of promos and short clips from its new series, which don’t do much more than provide the premises and a brief taste of the pilots.  Strong caution should be used in making any judgments from these, although we will anyway.  For THE TOMORROW PEOPLE, which will be paired with […]

THE SKED 2013 UPFRONTS: CBS Featurette – “The Millers”

Posted May 15, 2013 by Mitch Salem

  For any comedy developed at CBS, the grand prize of pilot season is the slot behind THE BIG BANG THEORY on Thursday night.  That prize went this year to Greg Garcia’s THE MILLERS.  It’s an unusual multi-camera comedy for Garcia, with a first-rate cast that includes Will Arnett, Margo Martindale, Beau Bridges and J.B. […]

THE SKED 2013 UPFRONTS: CBS Featurette – “Intelligence”

Posted May 15, 2013 by Mitch Salem

  In the CBS featurette for its new midseason action-adventure INTELLIGENCE (it’ll take over the Monday 10PM timeslot from Hostages), the show is variously compared to Mission: impossible, Frankenstein, The Six Million Dollar Man and James Bond.  Curiously, the one they left out was Chuck, for which this show’s concept is virtually a dead ringer:  […]

THE SKED 2013 UPFRONTS: CBS Featurette – “We Are Men”

Posted May 15, 2013 by Mitch Salem

  The CBS featurette for its new Monday 8:30PM comedy WE ARE MEN is at great pains to suggest that the cast–Chris Smith, Tony Shalhoub, Jerry O’Connell and Kal Penn, as divorcees who live in the same residential hotel–has as much fun together behind the camera as in front of it.  The bigger question is […]

THE SKED 2013 UPFRONTS: CBS Featurette – “Mom”

Posted May 15, 2013 by Mitch Salem

  No name has more cachet at CBS than Chuck Lorre’s.  He’s given the network The Big Bang Theory, 2 1/2 Men and Mike & Molly, and hopes are high that his MOM, taking over the Monday 9:30PM timeslot this fall, can join those at the top of the ratings heap.  The network’s behind-the-scenes featurette, […]
