There have been a few breakout shows over the years and THE SOPRANOS is one of them.

Not counting the anomaly exception of Lunch's original TWIN PEAKS, I think THE X-FILES really first imploded the rules of standard TV series (soon followed by the creators' MILLENNIUM though it was more of niche show).

And in the late "90s, HBO kinda reinvented television shows that would be adult, smart, deep and against the current of Hollywood conservative codes with SEX AND THE CITY and then THE SOPRANOS, SIX FEET UNDER, you name them... With the "non-comedy" shows, TV almost became "cinema", series were now shot and written like films... and good films! The best contemporary writers have quickly migrated or emerged from TV.

Now already 18-20 years later, countless shows and changes later, here we are...

It seems like Dolph is in New York city "to work with sly". Is it possible they would already be shooting the pilot for the show ? (or just scouting ?)

They're still working on the script. Pilot could be shot in the first months of 2020...

If Dolph actually gets to direct CASTLE FALLS first, I wonder where it's at, if they locked the script that was still in the works in December, or what, I know Sly is also filming a project now.

That will leave a little time slot if EX4 still goes to production late spring / early summer.

But as a TV pilot it's not undoable, and it could be ready for pilots season in September...?

Feel like we should have heard more about this by now. The traditional pilot season is basically now. The networks make up their minds if they want the show to go forward by May since that's when they announce their fall schedules. So the actual pilots themselves are usually shot between now and April.

But I will say that TV has changed a lot in the last few years and not every new show premieres in the fall anymore.

They still have just the window to shoot it in May but we'll see. In any case it seems too big of a thing to be canceled before they make the pilot so I'm not too scared about the possibility.

He actually makes this sound kind of uncertain here. :?
"If this happens" It is going to happen in May after Castle Falls, he says.
It is in New York. Dolph likes that it is about the UN. He thinks that in this time of division in the world the UN stands for something positive. The part he is set to plays is a great part he says: An Agent for UNs secret service that deals with hostage situations, Bombs, Terrorism etc.

We probably should not get our hopes up further about this. With all that is going on with the Corona Virus, limiting travel all over and all the economics that brings with it I say this is highly unlikely to happen now.

But who knows what the situation is in two months...

Right, wait and see... If they're both passionate about it and can't make it happen now, they may still give it a go for next year, in between EX4 and whatnot or whatever happens or doesn't happen in the meantime...

According to the interview Jox posted on the Castle Falls topic, it seems like the show is going to a streaming service (and not CBS), hence the delay (I guess).

I think Sly is working with Warner Bros a lot lately, so possibly it could go to HBO MAX?
