NETWORKS PLAN 'END OF AMERICA' SHOWS

The TV networks are getting edgier in their '06 pilot plans.

The nets have filled their development slates with a bevy of brave ideas and bold format experiments, VARIETY reports on Monday, including shows about THE END OF AMERICA!

ABC alone has at least two would-be shows set in post-apocalyptic America ("Resistance" and "Red & Blue") while Gavin Polone and Bruce Wagner are teaming for the comfy-sounding plague drama "Four Horsemen" at CBS (which also is developing "Jericho," about life in a small town after America is destroyed). (Emphasis added)

Says Fox exec VP Craig Erwich: "The creative community appears to be really inspired this year," he says. "It was an exciting time to be buying. I came away pretty encouraged about network TV."

I don't think it's you, it's the nature of the programs. I watched all of these more or less faithfully too. Unfortunately, a lot of people don't want serious, often thought-provoking stories. Instead they want fluff to keep them amused for a few minutes which can be forgotten as soon as it's over. Sad, but that's what I see as the reason for shows like this failing.

I agree, Celt. I remember thinking, after The X Files got cancelled, and Millennium was no longer on FX, thinking "Ohhhh....how spoiled I've gotten! Everything seems trite and sub-par after this! And, like you said, the shallow-mindedness of a culture that would rather watch pretty girls be forced to eat bugs is not what I'd call fertile feilds for the birth of new deep, thought provoking shows. :doh:
