"We just found out that network tv isn't ready for the first brown female superhero on tv," New Girl star Hannah Simone tweeted when she learned that her Indian-American reboot of the 1980s ABC superhero series failed to make next year's ABC schedule. CBS' rejection of the Cagney & Lacey reboot pilot means Grey's Anatomy star Sarah Drew has lost two jobs in as many weeks. Fox's passing on Katie Holmes' FBI drama marks the second time that she has been passed over for her first regular series role since Dawson's Creek. According to The Hollywood Reporter, there's a possibility of reshooting the pilot if Holmes approves. The most surprising rejected pilot is Bad Boys spinoff L.A's Finest starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony wanted to package L.A.'s Finest with Norman Lear's passion project Guess Who Died and bubble shows Timeless and The Blacklist. Now both pilots are being shopped, while a decision hasn't been made on The Blacklist and Timeless.
