‘SUPERMAN & LOIS’ PUSHED TO SUMMER START

“New series Superman & Lois is expected to have a Summer not a Spring start in Vancouver, assuming it’s safe to film by then.

With production suspended worldwide because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the Upfronts going virtual there’s no need to risk the safety of cast and crew for a pilot.”

“The CW ordered Superman & Lois to series last October and planned to shoot for 8 weeks this Spring but that changed as the coronavirus spread.”

‘SUPERMAN & LOIS’ MAY SKIP PILOT

“Additionally, there are more than usual straight-to-series orders at the broadcast networks for next season, including drama The Big Sky at ABC, comedies L.A. Mayor starring Ted Danson and Young Rock featuring Dwayne Johnson (plus holdover The Keenan Show) at NBC, comedy Call Me Kat starring Mayim Bialik at Fox, and dramas Walker starring Jarred Padalecki and Superman & Lois at the CW. (Fox also has animated comedy series Housebroken on deck for next season.)

A number of them, including Call Me Kat, The Big Sky and Superman & Lois, were planning to film a pilot episode during pilot season, take a break to assess it before starting series production. I hear most of the shows will now go straight to series production.

Between the projects with firm and blinking series orders, the networks have enough of a cushion to reduce their dependance on pilots. Some observers believe that in the end, the networks won’t necessarily make all pilots ordered this season, with the probability rising the longer the delay lasts. (They will pay off everyone involved.)”
