NBC, FOX, TBS, and TNT make Fall Pickups

TNT is moving forward with Public Morals, a 1960’s cop drama starring Ed Burns, and produced by Steven Spielberg. They are also moving forward with Proof, a medical drama starring Jennifer Beals and Matthew Modine. There is a rumor they might retool the pilot for Agent X, starring Sharon Stone, but Guilt By Association with Julia Stiles is dead.

TBS is going with Angie Tribeca, the cop comedy produced by Steve Carell and starring Rashida Jones. They also picked up Buzzy’s, from producers David Kohan and Max Mutchnick (Will and Grace). Also, Your Family Or Mine has been picked up. Untapped is not moving forward.

FOX ordered more episodes of Mulaney, upping the total to 16. The only comedy pilots still in contention are Sober Companion, Cabot College, and Dead Boss. Things aren’t looking good for Dads, Surviving Jack, and Enlisted either. FOX also picked up its other two drama pilots, Empire and Red Band Society.

NBC has picked up Odyssey, Allegiance, Marry Me, and State Of Affairs. Marry Me comes from the producers of Happy Endings, and stars Casey Wilson. State Of Affairs marks Katherine Heigl’s big return to TV. Allegiance is a little like Homeland and The Americans, and should pair well with The Blacklist. No word yet on Constantine, or whether the network is planning on renewing bubble series Community and Hannibal.
