The TV Ratings Guide Issues Mass Pilot Orders

The TV Ratings Guide Issues Mass Pilot Orders

In addition to the previously ordered four pilots, The TV Ratings Guide has issued as mass pilot order, ordering several more dramas and comedies to written pilots.

Comedy, The Music In Me: When a 25 year old single mother of twin 3-year-old girls (and former pop star), Vanessa Pinkerton, moves to a small town in California to escape Hollywood, she meets a man whose loved her music for a decade. When the two find out they’re neighbors, they fall in love and decide to raise Vanessa's family together.

Dramedy, Group: Six people from different backgrounds who are all in group therapy for depression and anxiety all try to get better, but more importantly, live their lives.

Comedy, Heatwave: Sunny Storms is an extremely successful meteorologist who was basically a Saint. Except for one thing. She volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, campaigned to get Equal Rights for Women, and was all around a great person. When a house she was building collapses on her, killing her, she is sent to Hell for a mistake that she made when she was 16. She tries to convince those in charge that she deserves to be in Heaven.

Comedy, Our House: When Teri’s dream home goes on the market, she convinces her dysfunctional family, including her crazy mother Betty and calm stepfather Karl; her liberal brother Ralph; her conservative, religious sister Cindy and her husband Jerry; her alcoholic nephew Zeke; her selfish niece Tammi, her husband Francis and son Steven; her nosy cousin-in-law Velma; her cousin Mitchell; and her friend Danielle, to sell their homes and help pay for the house, and also move in with her. Life’s not going to be easy with this crazy family.

Dramedy, Wrong Number: A dramedy where a woman working at a call center accidentally calls the wrong number. Little does she know, the wrong number may just lead to the one she's looking for in regards to love.

The news comes just about two months after the first successful pilot/series cycle ended. In the first TVRG show cycle, over sixty submissions were sent in, with 9 shows receiving series orders in the end. Written series will begin to be posted on the site in 2017. Readers had the chance to submit show ideas of their own, for a chance to get a written pilot picked up by the website, and if lucky, eventually, get to publish written episodes of the series on the site.

Shows that receive a pilot order are to send in (via email), a longer pitch for their series. Once all are received, The TV Ratings Guide will announce which series have landed a series order. One can include  possible episode ideas, season ideas, etc.
