During a Friday conference call regarding Battlestar Galactica's own fate, David Eick revealed that the pilot he has over at Fox - the sci-fi-themed Them - lives on, perhaps as a mid-season premiere. "It's still in play and something the network is very actively talking about," he said. "We'll know more in the next weeks and months."

Meanwhile, Mitchell Hurwitz's The Thick of It, a BBC comedy adaptation originally eyed (but ultimately passed on) by ABC, is now garnering interest from Showtime, NBC and HBO.
