With networks set to announce their fall TV lineups next week, TVGuide.com has the scoop on which pilots stand the best chance of flourishing next season. From medical dramas and romantic comedies to spies and Shatner, here's our take on 14 solid bets for the fall:
Pilots. Casting. Variety. Reporter. Go. Gregory Itzin, whose disgraced President Logan's life currently hangs in the balance on 24, will play an alpha-male, adrenaline-junkie boss in ABC's Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office. Another 24 politico, Logan VP Ray Wise, is a real devil in the CW's Reaper. Oh, Leland...! Emmy winner, meet Oscar winner: Cynthia Watros is Marisa Tomei's dancer/best friend in CBS' The Rich Inner Life of Penelope Cloud. Rachel Boston (American Dreams) has landed the lead, playing a rising-star exec, in an ABC comedy set in a Phoenix TV newsroom. Amy Yasbeck is on board as a coanchor. The Wire's Domenick Lombardozzi is a cop alongside CBS' The Man. Rade Serbedzija (24's Gredenko) is a vampire in CBS' Twilight. Brandon Quinn (The O.C.'s Spencer) is Lacey Chabert's love interest in Fox's untitled, life-after-college comedy.
Question: I'm so excited for The Wire to start, I can barely stand it. I'd cancel my own wedding if it conflicted. Any scoop?
Answer: The first four episodes are better than ever (or so TV Guide's Bruce Fretts tells me). Here's some scoop: Dominic West's Jimmy (who is still working as a beat cop) has settled down and is living with Beadie (Amy Ryan) and her two kids. Prez (Jim True-Frost) takes a job teaching at a rough inner-city middle school. Herc (Domenick Lombardozzi) is working as a driver for the mayor and walks in on Hizzoner in a very compromising (and very explicitly depicted) position. And Michael K. Williams (Omar) goes full-frontal in the opening minutes of Episode 3. BTW, if you have yet to jump on The Wire, now's the time. Per Fretts, the new season — beginning Sept. 10 —
