REVELATIONS (The CW, New!) - Maisie Culver has set up a potential drama at the netlet based on Stephen King's short story in which "after accidentally shooting herself in the brain with a nail gun, a Pollyanna-ish Becca Paulson is recruited by an over-it Jesus to be his "chosen one" in stopping the apocalypse. In order to save the world, Becca will have to prove that our deeply backward planet Earth is redeemable - starting with her quirky midwestern hometown." Warner Bros. Television is behind the hour with Katie Lovejoy executive producing and Culver as a co-executive producer. (Deadline.com)
ROXY (FOX, New!) - Jennifer Crittenden and Gabrielle Allan have sold a single-camera comedy to the network about "two single women living together in Southern California in the swinging seventies: Diane, a newly divorced mom of two daughters, who is realizing she was fed a lot of bulls*t about happily ever afters, and Melanie, a promiscuous free spirit and enthusiastic early adopter of the birth control pill." FOX Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television are behind the half-hour with Brownstone Productions' Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman also executive producing and Dannah Shinder as a co-executive producer. (Deadline.com)
