While we anxiously await news of NBC's existing bubble series, the peacock network has officially begun handing out its pilot orders for 2013-2014.

Abrams drama 'Believe,' Dermot Mulroney's 'Crisis' and 'Will and Grace' star Sean Hayes' new sitcom. Get the latest on NBC's new lineup inside!
As pilot season rages on and more and more celebrities sign on to high profile projects for the major networks, one of the more promising pilots to add to its cast has been that of 'Friday Night Lights' creator Jason Katims' 'About A Boy' adaptation for NBC. Previously casting 'Bent' and 'New Girl' star David Walton in the male lead of Will (or Hugh Grant's role, for movie-lovers), NBC's 'About A Boy' has recruited Hollywood star Minnie Driver for the female lead. Who will they call for the title role of 'About A Boy?' Find out the latest on the new series inside!
NBC's 'Revolution' seems to be doing well enough on its own, but it certainly didn't hurt that the J.J. Abrams-produced series had a bit of a boost in its pilot episode from director Jon Favreau. Now, NBC hopes Favreau will bring the same lucky charm to Jason Katims' forthcoming 'About a Boy' pilot, putting Favreau once again in the directors' chair. Casting has yet to begin, but what's the buzz 'About a Boy?' New details inside!
Clear eyes and full hearts may not be able to lose, but it sounds like 'Friday Night Lights' fans are going to have to keep their Panthers jerseys hung up a bit longer, as instead of the long-awaited movie, series show-runner Jason Katims is headed back to TV with another book/movie combination in mind. The acclaimed director will next take 2002 Hugh Grant vehicle 'About A Boy' to an NBC series, but will the premise be sustainable as a long-running show?
