Showtime Give “Halo” Update, New Pilot Deals

First announced over a year ago, it seems not much progress has been made on the Steven Spielberg-produced live-action “Halo” TV series.

Talking about the project at the Television Critics Association press tour, Showtime president David Nevins was asked if he could offer an update on the project and whether Showtime was still involved.

Nevins said: “It’s still in development. Still in very active development.” Pressed for a potential date he aded “No time soon.”

Showtime was more immediately talking up its other projects in the works including a new coming-of-age drama pilot being produced by Lena Waithe and Common, a pilot for the drama “I’m Dying Up Here” set in the 1970s L.A. comedy scene which Jim Carrey will produce, and a limited series based on Patti Smith’s memoir “Just Kids” which John Logan will produce.
