    Alot of dark, heavy shit around here lately. So, to lighten things up... more than a few groans. Variety is tracking pilot projects for the networks. Some of them sound so bad you wonder who's smoking what.

    This looks the worst to me:
    Viva Laughlin (Sony/CBS Paramount)
    Exec Producers: Bob Lowry, Hugh Jackman, Paul Talegdy, John Palermo, Peter Bowker
    Writer: Bob Lowry
    Director:Gabriele Muccino
    Cast: Lloyd Owen, Carter Jenkins, Ellen Woglom, Madchen Amick, Melanie Griffith, Eric Winter, P.J. Byrne

    It's based on a popular British TV series: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackpool_%28TV_serial%29

    Pastor -- agreed. didn't "Cop Rock" teach these people anything? I think mine still wins, though, because of these two words: "Horatio Sanz"

    Yes. Horatio Sanz is definitely cringe inducing. However, it still isn't a musical. Yuck.

    Me & Lee - did Jenji Kohan smoke too much weed on the set of that other show of hers?
    Journeyman - Hate to see "Rome" hero Lucius Vorenus get wasted on this tripe.
