Fall TV: The 5 Big Questions

It's do-or-die time at the broadcast networks, as executives make some tough choices for next season. On their plates: deciding which current shows to kill and identifying potential hits from more than 80 pilots. Here are some burning questions to keep in mind as the powers that be prepare to unveil their 2011-2012 schedules the week of May 16.

Will the networks play it bold or play it safe?

Poe, written and directed by Francis Xavier, tells the story of brilliant and wealthy Dr. Andrew Casey (David Fine - Rent, The Red Door), who is a serial killer known only by the name of 'Chef'. His need for notoriety causes the doctor to seek out writer Johnathan Poe (Stelio Savante - 'Ugly Betty', My Super Ex-Girlfriend), a descendant of the famed writer Edgar Allan Poe and a brilliant writer in his own right, with an offer to write his biography. Poe is intrigued and agrees to the assignment. Dr. Casey, along with his butler, Mr. Peeples (Mike Iorio - My Super Ex-Girlfriend), lures women to his home under the alias of film director Jack Conway with the pretense of meeting to discuss a well-paying role. Once the women arrive, they are tied up, drugged and eventually sliced up to be used for meat to feed the homeless at the Help Feeding Foundation soup kitchen. Once at the house, Poe is forced to witness all manner of horrors without the ability to either escape or help the women who have been captured. When naked torsos begin turning up in and around the Los Angeles area, police detectives Victor Ramirez (Sal Landi - Cold Case, For the Boys) and Jonah 'Jonzy' Jones (Greg Travis - Rob Zombie s Halloween 2) begin the task of searching for this most troublesome serial killer along with forensic pathologist Amy Short (Felissa Rose Sleepaway Camp). As the clues mount and their efforts intensify, the police are led to believe they have their suspect in middle-aged Aaron Cameron (Gene Silvers - Law & Order, Third Watch), a loner who lives with his alcoholic mother (Maray Ayres, General Hospital) and finally snaps after one too many abuses by killing her in a fit of rage. With similarities between his killing and the work of the Chef, Aaron is initially thought to be the prime suspect in the serial killings. However, after extensive interrogation by Detective Ramirez, the true story of horror and abomination is revealed.
