CW Pilot Season Begins

The CW Network has ordered six pilots for 2016. Keep in mind that these are just pilot orders, none of these shows have been picked up yet.

So here is a list of the 6 pilots.

"Set in present day and based on the Archie Comic characters, Riverdale is a surprising and subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica and their friends, exploring the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale's wholesome facade."

"A team of explorers arrive on Mars to join the first human colony on the planet, only to discover that their predecessors have vanished.  Led by a woman whose husband is among the missing, the colonist are forced to change their mission from exploration and settlement to investigation and survival."

"In 1880, a headstrong young woman in search of her missing father ventures from NYC to Transylvania where she teams up with a wrongfully disgraced Scotland Yard Detective, and together they witness the births of the most famous monsters and villains in history."

"A young woman seeks help from a parapsychologist when she begins to experience paranormal phenomena."

"A female police detective in 2016 discovers she is able to speak via ham radio to her estranged father (also a detective) who died in 1996. They forge a new relationship while working together on an unresolved murder case, but unintended consequences of the 'butterfly effect' wreak havoc in the present day."

"When a risk-averse, straight-arrow, female procurement manger at an Amazon-like distribution center falls in love with a freewheeling man who lives life to the fullest because he believes the apocalypse is imminent, to comedic and poignant results they embark on a quest together to fulfill their individual bucket lists."
