Gramercy Park | Pilots Build, Lose Buzz for 2004-05 Schedule

Part of “Old Info And News”

Gramercy_Park000181.jpgWith the upfronts just one week away, pilot “buzz” has kicked into high gear as the vague picture of the broadcast networks’ new 2004-05 series is starting to come into focus.

Here’s a round-up of how each pilot is faring, according to various reports:

ABC
DRAMAS – Gushing in the word that best describes the Alphabet’s reaction to “Desperate Housewives,” which seems as sure as anything to make the fall schedule. Not surprisingly “Housewives” comes from new ABC topper Steve McPherson’s former home, Touchstone Television. Also considered strong or having fans are “Eyes,” “Doing It,” “Blind Justice” and “Under the Knife” (a.k.a. “Surgeons”). “Lost” is set to be screened this week, while mum is the word on “Countdown,” “DeMarco Affairs,” “Gramercy Park,” “Kat Plus One” and “The Secret Service.” Only “Harry Green & Eugene” has been singled out as not likely for a fall 2004 berth.

EW: “Potential fall fixes: Desparate Housewives and Gramercy Park”

Part of “Old Info And News”

Gramercy_Park000181.jpgFix This Network!

Don’t overthink dramas. ABC’s tried too hard to curry favor with critics by coming up with bold dramas that are too complicated (Line of Fire, Threat Matrix, and yes, Alias) or too dark (Miracles, Veritas) Either learn from CBS and NBC and create a procedural franchise (CSI, Law & Order) or re-embrace your thirtysomething roots and give women somthing to (willingly) cry over. Potential fall fixes: suburban-mom drama, Desparate Housewives and Gramercy Park, about nannies working in a posh NYC building.

Significant Others On DVD

DVD Extras SIGNIFICANT OTHERS Elizabeth Mitchell.jpgDo you remember a show from 1998 that stared Jennifer Garner (Alias, Felicity. Daredevil), Michael Weatherly (Dark Angel), Eion Bailey (Band of Brothers, Almost Famous) and Scott Bairstow (Harsh Realm, Party of Five)? Probably not….it only lasted 3 episodes on Fox, leaving 3 episodes in the can.

On August 3rd Columbia TriStar will release all 6 episodes of the hour-long show. While the show was far from a success, fans of Garner’s will probably pick it up just to see her earlier work. Pricing on the set should be fairly cheap, and we’re not expecting it to contain any extras.
