The CW and ABC are putting a show of faith behind some of their freshmen series. Welcome to the scriptapalooza! Hollywood.com has confirmed that The CW has ordered three more scripts for Beauty and the Beast and Emily Owens, M.D.—a boost of confidence for the two rookie series. Additionally, ABC has asked for two more scripts from Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue to go alongside their recent three-script pickup of The Neighbors.
For ABC, both Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue have performed modestly well for the network, gaining an average of 7.8 million and 5.6 million viewers, respectively.
The CW’s freshman series have been getting a huge vote of confidence from the network after getting a full-season pick-up of their ab-solutely action-packed series, Arrow. The CW says that both series delivered the network’s best performance in their respective time periods in months.
