Every year around now something is happening in LA. Theres a universal holding of breath as people ramp up for the crazy and exciting couple of months that make up Pilot Season. Lets just get straight into the lingo, Pilot Season is the part of the year where networks in LA decide to try out ideas and scripts by producing a first episode, the pilot episode. This process is called green lighting and this year has a seen a plethora of scripts green lit from established names like J.J Abrams (Lost), Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network), Doug Ellin (Entourage), David S. Goyer (Batman Begins), Shawn Ryan (The Shield) and Marc Cherry (Desperate Housewives) to name just a few. Most of these pilots will never see the light of day, and there are many factors to this but usually it comes down to a mixture of quality and timing. Weve decided to take the initiative for the next three weeks we are going to give you a feel for each pilot that has been green lit so far for next season as well as giving you our own take on whether or not it will make it to air. One of the biggest make or break elements for pilots and their writers is that their ideas are trendy, and because of that lots of the pilots end up feeling similar. Each week we will explore two of this seasons trends. This week we will be exploring End of the world conspiracy adventures and Serial killers are cool.
