The TV Ratings Guide is still handing out pilot orders, building its original lineup. Comedy-drama 'Delta!', and political/family drama 'Tsunami Territory' have also been picked up to pilot. The news comes just about a month after the website announced its first ever original programs tournament. Readers had the chance to submit show ideas of their own, for a chance to get a pilot picked up by the website, and if lucky, eventually, get to publish episodes of the series on the site.
Delta!: Delta! hails from Rebecca Bunch, and is a dramedy that follows a thirty year old lounge singer, Delta Fleming, who is trying to get through life as a single woman, who lives in her mother's basement, while still maintaining close relationships with four people who are all polar opposites. She has to avoid her boss, and former boyfriend, Rick, who almost certainly still loves her. The supporting cast includes her college professor-turned-stepfather, her perfect brother, her crazy (and also alcoholic) best friend, and her former childhood neighbor, who is secretly dating Rick.
Tsunami Territory comes from Hunter Vogt, and is about the unpopular mayor of a coastal city who faces disastrous times after a tsunami hits his city, which adds on top of current family issues. Tsunami Territory is a political and family drama.
Shows that receive a pilot order are to send in (via email(see comments)), a longer pitch for their series. Once all are received, The TV Ratings Guide will announce which series have landed a series order.
