TNT, Showtime pick up pilots

TNT announced today that it has picked up "Leverage" from Dean Devlin and John Rogers to air later this year.

Showtime has announced it has greenlit "Possible Side Effects", a pilot Tim Robbins will direct. They have also picked up "The United States of Tara", written by current writer darling Diablo Cody and produced by Steven Spielberg.

Showtime renewed Brotherhood for another season...and this info from Hollywood Reporter:

Showtime has also lined up its spring and summer schedule, setting palace drama "The Tudors" as a lead-in for new variety show "Tracey Ullman's State of the Union" on March 30 and packaging "Weeds' and recent British acquisition "Secret Diary of a Call Girl" for June 16.

But returning David Duchovny romantic dramedy "Californication" likely won't debut until after the Summer Olympics in August, execs said Wednesday, essentially making the show a fall series. The series debuted last year in mid-August.
More news as it happens...which appears to be a lot this week! (Wonder why...)

I don't understand the news about Californication. It started last season in Mid August too. So how is it different this year? And if its not being paired with Weeds then which show would it be paired with.

I'm trying really, really, really hard not to hate Diablo Cody. It's not easy.

Well I'm happy and can't wait for Californication to come back. I'm a big fan.:)
Can't wait.
