ABC greenlights Jerry Bruckheimer, McG and Mark Gordon TV pilots

UPI News Service, 01/31/2009 

ABC has ordered pilot episodes of three new series, including one from U.S. film producer Jerry Bruckheimer's TV production group, industry sources say.

The Hollywood Reporter said Friday that Jerry Bruckheimer TV will be working with Warner Bros. TV on a pilot for an untitled series that will be directed by "CSI" director Danny Cannon.

The new series, whose pilot will be written by Mark Friedman, will follow a group of amateur detectives taking part in cases involving unidentified victims.

Producer Joseph Nichol, better known as McG in the entertainment industry, will be involved with one of ABC's other new pilots.

McG will serve as executive producer for the drama "Limelight," which takes place at a New York performing arts college. The series is based on the life of hip-hop producer Pharrell Williams.

The Reporter said producer Mark Gordon will executive produce ABC's third new pilot, "Empire State," which follows the culture clash of a working class family with a wealthy family.
