Let's review what we know so far.
Wonder Woman (from David E. Kelley!!)
Charlie's Angels (ABC)
Being Erica US version (ABC)
The Wild Wild West (CBS) - No way in hell!!
ABC (my selection of what could be interesting)
Georgetown (Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage). A sexy soap centered around young people behind the power brokers of Washington DC (drama) - Josh Schwartz and
Stephanie Savage? I'm there!!
Pan Am (Jack Orman, Nancy Ganis, Sid Ganis, Tommy Schlamme). A sexy soap set against the jet age, focusing on the stewardesses and pilots and their glamorous world full
of adventures (drama) - I love soaps but this sounds silly though!
In Crisis (Rhimes, Betsy Beers). Revolves around the life and work of a professional fixer and her dysfunctional staff. The character is based on the career of
Judy Smith, a crisis management consultant who has guided corporations, politicians, and public figures over the last 20 years (drama

for adoption shows up on her doorstep (comedy)
Grace (Krista Vernoff, Carrie Ann Inaba). Focuses on a dysfunctional family set in the world of professional dance (drama)
Good Christian Bitches! (Robert Harling, Darren Star). Primetime soap is set in Dallas and asks the question – Is it possible to start over in a town that thinks
they already know you? Amanda, once the ultimate “mean girl” in high school, returns home to Dallas after her marriage ends in scandal. Humbled, Amanda is nothing like the girl she once was. But
as her old classmates reacquaint themselves with the new Amanda, will these “Good Christian Bitches” give her a second chance or is this their shot to seek revenge? (drama) - It's Darren Starr
Once Upon a Time (Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz). A young boy who is drawn into a town where the magic and mystery of fairy tales may be real real (drama) - Sounds lame but these guys
were on Lost!!
CBS (my selection of what could be interesting)
Ringer (Eric Carmelo and Nicole Snyder). About a troubled young woman on the run who hides out by living the life of her wealthy twin sister, until she learns
her sibling’s life has a bounty on it as well. It stars Sarah Michelle Gellar (drama)
The Assistants (Tucker Cawley). Multi-camera sitcom about four assistants who work for a celebrity couple (comedy)
Dear Girls Above Me (Jason Goldberg, Ashton Kutcher). Based on a Twitter feed from a man who recounts what he hears from the girls who live above him (comedy)

NBC (my selection of what could be interesting)
Smash (Steven Spielberg, Neil Meron, Craig Zadan, Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey, Theresa Rebeck). Follows a cross section of characters who come together for the
exhilarating ride of putting on a Broadway musical (drama)
Bent (Ted Quill). Single-camera comedy about a recently divorced Type A single mom who tries hard not to fall for the sexy surfer dude contractor she hires to re-do her
S.A.N.D. (Craig Titley). A squad called the Sleep and Nightmare division enter peoples’ dreams to tackle their nightmares (drama) - Sort of like Inception I guess. Could
be interesting if we get to see a lot of their actual lives and not just their dreams. But I think I'd be bored fast.
CW (my selection of what could be interesting)
Hart of Dixie (Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, Leila Gerstein and Len Goldstein). A young New York City doctor inherits a medical practice in a small Southern town
inhabited by an eclectic and eccentric group of characters. (drama)
As I was saying before: Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage? I'm in!!

That's obviously subject to change (in name, casting, writing or directing team...) and most of them will never see the light of day. But as a whole I find this new season, or what we know of it
for now, much more interesting than the previous one. I also noticed a lot of office style comedies and a lot of "soaps". Although they're nightime soaps so I'm guessing closer to Melrose Place
than The Young and the Restless so I wouldn't call them that because soaps are a different genre.
