Pilot orders continue to come through in a flood this week with today comes word that The CW is proceeding with its high-profile “Dynasty” reboot while FOX will remake the war film “Behind Enemy Lines” into a series.
“The O.C.” and “Gossip Girl” creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are behind the new take on “Dynasty,” the iconic 1980s primetime soap which aired for nine seasons on ABC.
The story follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children. The CW also handed out a pilot order for “Searchers” from Greg Berlanti (“The Flash”) and Jason Rothenberg (“The 100”) which sounds like a more mystery-tinged brother and sister spin on “Supernatural”.
Over at FOX, a pilot order was handed out for this loose reinterpretation of the Owen Wilson and Gene Hackman-led “Behind Enemy Lines” which will be turned into a military soap thriller about a group of U.S. soldiers find themselves trapped behind enemy lines.
The pilot is described as “distinctly patriotic” and offers multi-perspective narrative that closely follows the soldiers on the ground, the officers and service men and women on a nearby aircraft carrier, along with intelligence officers in Washington as they attempt to bring the heroes home safely.
Other reboots and film-to-series adaptations in the works include “Sneakers,” “Enemy of the State,” “What About Bob?,” “War of the Worlds,” “Magnum P.I.,” “The Lost Boys,” “Charmed,” “Varsity Blues,” “The Departed” and “L.A. Law”.
