Pilot Season: ABC Orders Drama and Comedy From Steven Spielberg's Studio
ABC is getting into business with Steven Spielberg.
The network has ordered a drama pilot and a comedy pilot from the blockbuster director's studio Amblin TV.
Lucky 7 follows seven employees of a Queens service station whose lives are changed in many unpredictable ways when they win a lottery jackpot. (Maybe they played the lucky Lost numbers?) The pilot was written by David Zabel (ER) and Jason Richman (Detroit 1-8-7).

Middle Age Rage is a single-camera comedy about a middle-aged mom who is tired of feeling invisible and begins to speak up and demand the respect she think she deserves. Malibu Country scribe Cheryl Holliday wrote the pilot, and Smash's Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank will serve as executive producers.
Amblin TV also produced the short-lived series Terra Nova and The River, and is also producing CBS' upcoming summer adaptation of Stephen King's Under the Dome.
