With Pilots being cast and filmed ready for later this year, which ones are you all looking forward to?

Personally I'm looking forward to Delirium, The Selection, The Tomorrow People, Reign and The Hundred

Oxygen, The Originals, The Tomorrow People, Delirium, The Selection, The Hunt and there's probably more but I can't remember. 2013 sounds like a good year for US TV .

Basically anything dystopian or supernatural.

Thanks for this thread, some great sounding shows that I plan on trying out.

I'm also planning on giving Defiance a go: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defiance_%28TV_series%29

Thanks for this thread, The Selection and Under the Dome both sound great and I'll be trying them out.

From what I've read Defiance sounds great... remind me of the last show Sy-Fy did which was worth watching though?

Have no idea, but Reign will be filming in April so keep your eyes peeled! I'm assuming that this show will need to be filmed around castles or the like so....

Plot: Based on the U.K. series created by Roger Price, the drama tells the story of several young people from around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution, possessing special powers, including the ability to teleport and communicate with each other telepathically. Together they work to defeat the forces of evil.

The List
From: Paul Zbyszewski (writer/producer, Hawaii Five-o)

S.H.I.E.L.D. as it will be great having Joss Whedon back on tv! Not sure how involved he will be beyond the pilot but still good to have some more Joss.

I like a good primetime soap so I'm hoping that Gothica, Westside (formerly known as Venice) and The Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives make it past the pilot stage. I also like the sound of ABC's Reckless about a man trying to rescue his wife who is imprisoned overseas during an uprising.

I know! The one on CBS sounds pretty sh*t though. This type of thing happens quite often. There were two Beauty and the Beasts in development last year with only the CW one making it to air. There's two Sleepy Hollows in development this year too - one that has made it to pilot stage on FOX and the other still in development on the CW.

Well, the projects "in development" at the networks that didn't get picked up for a pilot are effectively dead, so the two Sleep Hollow projects are now just one. Sure, sometimes dead projects get revived, but it is rare for that to happen.
