CW Pilot Possibilities

Published

The wait is almost over!

The CW will announce its Fall 2014-2015 schedule on Thursday, May 15. But if you don’t want to wait that long, here’s a look at whats being heatedly discussed. Courtesy of TVGuide.com

DRAMA

The Flash
Based on characters published by DC Comics. Scientist Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) is given the power of super-speed after a freak accident that transforms him into the Fastest Man Alive. The Arrow spin-off comes from Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and DC Chief Geoff Johns. Jesse L. Martin, Tom Cavanagh, Candace Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Rick Cosnett, Carlos Valdes, Michelle Harrison, Patrick Sabongui and John Wesley Shipp will also star.

Our Thoughts– It’ll be a hit because of all the superhero fans out there. Me personally, I won’t be interested. But our superhero obsessed writer Joachim probably will be!

Identity
When a young woman (Ahna O’Reilly) in need of a transplant learns she is related to a powerful family whose son Davis (Matt Barr) is her only hope for a donor organ, the CIA approaches her to investigate the family’s involvement in domestic terrorism and to infiltrate their rarified world. Her loyalty, morality and ethics are tested as she’s forced to slowly build a case against the family who saved her life. Sleepy Hollow creators Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will executive-produce with writer Corinne Brinkerhoff (The Good Wife). Patricia Wettig, Mehcad Brooks, Stephen Hagan and Manish Dayal will also star.

Our Thoughts- This could be a good drama mystery. How do you turn on the family who once helped you? How is it to suddenly realize your whole life was a lie?

iZombie
A med student-turned-zombie (Rose McIver) takes a job in the coroner’s office to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity, but what happens when she starts inheriting the corpse’s memories? With the help of her medical-examiner boss (Rahul Kohli) and a police detective (Malcolm Goodwin), she solves homicide cases to quiet the disturbing voices in her head. Veronica MarsRob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero will write and executive-produce the project, based on the DC Comics series. Robert BuckleyDavid Anders, Nora Dunn and Alexandra Krosney will also star.

Our Thoughts- Woooo, there goes my lunch. Super gross. Super Walking Dead.

Jane the Virgin
After a series of surprising events, a hard-working, religious young Latina woman (Gina Rodriguez) is accidentally artificially inseminated. 90210‘s Jennie Snyder Urman will write and executive-produce the adaptation of a Venezuelan telenovela. Jaime Camil, Justin Baldoni, Ryan Devlin, Yael Grobglas, Brett Dier, Andrea Navedo and Ivonne Coll will also star.

Our Thoughts: This has potential because it’s different. And if done right it can be a great drama-comedy about life, love, and the unexpected.

The Messengers
When a mysterious object crashes to Earth, a group of seemingly unconnected strangers die from the energy pulse, but then awaken to learn that they have assigned the task of preventing the impending Apocalypse. The Expendables producer Basil Iwanyk will executive-produce with Teen Wolf writer Eoghan O’Donnell. Diogo Morgado, Shantel VanSantenSofia Black-D’Elia, Jon Fletcher, Craig FrankLane Garrison and Joel Courtney will star.

Our thoughts: Way too much supernatural, apocalyptic stuff going on the CW. This reminds me of The 100 mixed with Sleepy Hollow.

Supernatural: Bloodlines
This Supernatural spin-off explores the clashing hunter and monster cultures of Chicago. Supernatural‘s Andrew Dabb will write and executive-produce with Eric Kripke, Jeremy Carver and McG. Stephen Martines, Danielle Savre, Sean Faris, Nathaniel Buzolic, Bryce Johnson, Melissa Roxburgh and Lucien Laviscount will star.

Our Thoughts: Self explanatory…. more supernatural. More monsters. Is this the sci-fi network?

 

What we’re most excited about: I’d have to say, Jane the Virgin. I mean, doesn’t that just sound like a keeper?
