The SF shows you won’t be seeing

Blastr has narrowed down from a much larger list a list of the genre shows that were in various stages of development for the upcoming television season on the four major networks that didn’t get pickups. It is a longer list than I expected, but given that a lot of them were “Untitled…project”, I’m guessing they included basic pitches that were confirmed but never went much further.
NBC led with a great many shows with 16, over half of the 30 shows. But The Dark Tower might still see life after some reworking to address cost concerns over the ambitious project, and I don’t see 17th Precinct on the list, but a little research shows that NBC passed on that one as well, in an apparent “either-or” situation against Grimm, which got picked up.
