NBC hasn't decided which four new shows it'll pick up for the fall season. But the network has chosen its six favorites, and registered the shows' Twitter handles. Obviously, someone on the internet noticed.
TV Addict reports that, by systematically going through the names of the pilots the network was considering, they were figured out NBC's six favorites. Meet @NBCBeachLane, @NBCTheCape, @NBCTheStrip, @NBCChase, and @NBCRockfordFiles, and @NBCKindreds. MovieLine introduces us to the possible shows:
The Cape: From Tom Wheeler, this scripted drama centers on a retired cop who becomes a superhero to rebuild his image.
Kindreds: David E. Kelly's drama about an ex-patent lawyer (Kathy Bates) and her quirky legal team.
The Rockford Files: A remake of the '70s series starring Dermot Mulroney and Beau Bridges.
Beach Lane: A comedy starring Nick Thune (who replaced Patton Oswalt) as an irresponsible millionaire who runs a struggling small-town newspaper with the help of a celebrity journalist (Matthew Broderick).
Chase: Jerry Bruckheimer's drama about a "crucial fugitive apprehension team comprised of U.S. Marshals that tracks down the nation's most notorious criminals."
