PILOT PICKUPS: Ghosted, LA to Vegas, The Resident

FOX handed out three orders today to comedies Ghosted and LA to Vegas and drama The Resident.

Ghosted has been a hot pilot throughout development. Starring Adam Scott and Craig Robinson, it centers on a skeptic and "true believer" who are asked to look into unexplained activity in Los Angeles. It sounds a bit like a comedy version of The X-Files, which will also be back on FOX next year. Ghosted also co-stars Ally Walker and Adeel Akhtar.

LA to Vegas has an interesting concept as it is set on an airplane and a round trip flight from Burbank to Las Vegas over a weekend. I like the concept but I'm curious to see what it looks like on a weekly basis. LA to Vegas stars Dylan McDermott, Kim Matula, Nathan Lee Graham, Olivia Macklin, and Peter Stormare.

The Resident is a medical drama centered on a senior resident guiding an idealistic young doctor. House was a hit but recent medical dramas like The Mob Doctor and Red Band Society haven't worked. This doesn't really sound like something that will work but we'll see. The Resident stars Matt Czuchry, Manish Dayal, Bruce Greenwood, Emily VanCamp, and Shaunette Watson.

These three pickups join Orville and The Gifted on the pickup list. I think we'll see some more FOX pickups but it's possible that they're done.
