Pilot Scorecard: New Broadcast Drama, Comedy and Unscripted Orders for 2021-22 Season

After months of development, production and fine-tuning, it’s decision time for dozens of broadcast pilots hopeful of getting the greenlight to series for the 2021-2022 TV season.

As the major studios rack up series orders over the coming week of network upfront presentations, it’s time to tally the wins and losses. The clear theme of the series orders unveiled to date are franchises, built-in IP and procedural dramas in a year when the total volume of development was down significantly due to pandemic-related disruptions.

Here’s a breakdown by conglomerate and studio imprint of new comedy, drama and unscripted series orders to date, to be updated regularly as broadcast, cable and streaming programming executives tout their wares in the coming days.

This year, virtual programming presentations will be held May 17-19 in lieu of the traditional razzle-dazzle mounted at Radio City Music Hall, Carnegie Hall and other New York City venues.
