I'm trying to avoid thinking - even reading! - about the TV pilots being picked up by the networks because it just confuses the issue when it comes to Toobworld. The basic rule is that if it's broadcast, then it becomes part of the TV Universe. That's when I would have to start worrying about how the new show fits in (and where).
But even so, sometimes I read the description for one of these pilots and I have to share it with you.
This could be part of the CBS line-up next season:
20th Century is developing 'Babylon Fields', which promises to be "an apocalyptic comedic drama about the dead being resurrected and trying to resume their former lives".
In the show, Amber Tamblyn will play a young woman who helped her mom kill her father because he was so abusive to the both of them. And then dear dead old dad goes and comes back to pick up where he left off.
If this had been the plotline for 'Baby, I'm Back', it would have lasted a couple of seasons.
