Development Dealings

Tidbits for the week of November 14, 2005:


  • All crime, all the time: Red Orbit says that NBC is planning to launch Sleuth, a 24-hour network airing mystery and crime shows. I was wondering how I could squeeze more "Knight Rider" and "A Team" into my life -- problem solved! It launches in January with a high-def version due later that year.


  • ABC has another bright idea. Reality TV Magazine is reporting that the network has picked up Simon Cowell's "American Inventor." Casting calls started today, so if you've got a million-dollar idea, you could win a million bucks. If not, you might be the next reality TV boob.


  • NBC may be short on ratings, but not ideas. NBC has ordered a script for the sitcom "5-0," about a cop who may be small, but carries a big schtick.


  • USA is looking to the Great White North for the big laughs and ratings. Variety says they've ordered a one-hour comedy called "Underfunded." It's about a Candian Secret Service agent who never seems to have the cash to complete his jobs. Huh? The writer, David Breckman, is a veteran of "Monk."


  • Lifetime is going to unleash "Lovespring," a 30-minute comedy set in a matchmaking service. To date, six episodes have been ordered. -- Rachel Cericola
