In Which I Come Clean And Reveal The 7 Real Pilots And 1 Fake

Oh, sweetlings! Some of you were quite clever little detectives and some of you just wanted the most horrific/idiotic shows to be the lies. My poor dears. Here is where I either make you feel better or convince you that your plan to curl into the fetal position and sob was probably a smart one.

“Beverly Hills Cop”

True! Eddie Murphy is producing, and may appear, in the CBS drama starring Brandon T. Jackson.



True! It’s being touted by ABC as “high concept” because of the one night premise and stars Kate Simses, Mercedes Masohn (pictured), Blake Lee, and Andrew Santino.


“The Donor Party”

True! I know, right? NBC is responsible for this gem that is without a cast so far.

“Giving 110%”

LIE! This one was mine. I bet I could sell it to NBC if I tried.


True! NBC is looking to get their own gritty fairy tale going. They don’t have a cast as of yet.

“Holding Patterns”

True! NBC is once again snapping up odd-sounding premises for their comedy line-up. Nothing funnier than surviving a plane crash with your buds and then dealing with the aftermath!

“Girlfriend in a Coma”

True! I’m sorry. NBC has cast Christina Ricci as the Coma Girlfriend in this comedy. Yes. Comedy. I’m trying to think of a funny way to get a comatose woman pregnant and coming up short.


“Sleepy Hollow”

True! Fox might pick up this pilot if all goes well. No cast for this one yet either.

Remember, if you think these are bad, just think of the drivel I didn’t share with you.
