PARADISE PICTURES (USA/UCP; W: Rick Muirragui; D: TBA) - Rick Muirragui's period drama - about "about ambitious people striving to get to the top in 1940s Hollywood, when the dream factory was at its peak; little do they know the challenges they're about to face: the end of studio monopolies, the blacklist and the new disruptive technology of television" - has been ordered to pilot by the cable channel. Universal Cable Productions is behind the hour, with "Suits" creator Aaron Korsh also attached as an executive producer. (Deadline.com)

Jeremy Konner is helming the half-hour which was co-written by the quartet. Electric Dynamite's Jack Black and Priyanka Mattoo also serve as executive producers. (Deadline.com)
