Upfronts are just over two weeks away and we’re at the point where network executives are currently screening and testing pilots before determining which shows will make it to series.
Here are more details from Deadline about which CW pilots are generating buzz among the network and which two shows are considered locks for the fall schedule.
Not a lot of movement at the CW, where all six pilots still seem to be in the mix. Last year, the network picked up five new series. It could conceivably order as many this time, giving this year’s pilots very good odds. Of the six, the DC-based The Flash and iZombie continue to look like locks. Sci-fi saga The Messengers, soap Jane The Virgin and terrorist/family drama Identity also have some heat, while the Supernatural spinoff Bloodlines will get its test on Tuesday when the episode airs.
The CW Upfront is scheduled for Thursday, May 15.
