“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.)”
“The iconic couple tackle a new stage of life in the CW’s upcoming Supergirl spinoff. “
“FINAL RECOMMENDATION: A spiritual successor to Lois and Clark with a sprinkling of Smallville for good measure, Superman & Lois has a lot of heart, and not all that much in common with The CW’s other DC properties. Still, Superman is Superman, giving this series the potential to be a crossover hit that appeals to existing fans of The CW’s Arrowverse and broader audiences alike.
