ABC Adds 10 Newcomers, Renews 'Notes,' 'Road'
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC is staying in "October Road" while "Notes from the Underbelly" has been given a second chapter.

In addition, 10 pilots - seven dramas ("Big Shots A.K.A. Perfect Gentlemen," "Cashmere Mafia," "Dirty Sexy Money," "Eli Stone," "Private Practice," "Pushing Daisies," "Women's Murder Club") and three comedies ("Carpoolers," "Cavemen," "Sam I Am") - have been issued series orders by the Alphabet.

The "Notes" pick-up is for 13 new episodes, which along with its five holdover installments from this season, will up its 2007-08 total to 18.

As for "Road," the network has yet to clarify if the renewal is for 13 episodes or a full season of 22.

Over on the newcomer side, the dramas include the much-ballyhooed "Grey's Anatomy" spin-off "Private Practice," two series from "Brothers & Sisters" executive producer Greg Berlanti ("Dirty Sexy Money," "Eli Stone") and efforts from "Sex and the City" creator Darren Star ("Cashmere Mafia"), "Reunion's" Jon Harmon Feldman ("Big Shots"), "Heroes'" Bryan Fuller ("Pushing Daisies") as well as a small screen take on James Patterson's book "Women's Murder Club."

And on the comedy front, there's the equally-ballyhooed "Cavemen," based on the Geico commercials, along with the Christina Applegate-led "Sam I Am" and Bruce McCulloch's ensemble "Carpoolers."

For details on each of the pilots, follow the links to the right.
