NBC has set a schedule for its new pilots for the upcoming seasons; three are from Denis Leary, David Eick and Josh Schwartz.
Denis Leary has sold his drama, Fort Pit which is based on real stories of NYPD ex cop, Rob Cea. Variety reports the show is about bad cops who go to finish off their careers and young rookie cops with no pull go to start their careers. Peter Tolan will produce and direct the pilot.
Josh Schwartz's Chuck is an action comedy about twentysomething spies, co-written by Chris Fedak; it will be in the vein of the quirky John Cusack film, Grosse Pointe Blank.
And David Eick's drama, Bionic Woman is a new take on the 1970's franchise; Laeta Kalogridis is co-writing and executive producing.
