Jessica Shulman also serves as an executive producer for 20th Century Fox Television and Baer Bones. Its logline is as follows: "Each week: three challenging medical cases. In the end, two will live, one will die. Their doctor - with a clinical fear of death - never stops fighting the odds."
DECEPTION (ABC) - Jack Cutmore-Scott ("Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life") has been tapped as the male lead on the drama pilot, about Cameron Black, a superstar magician who, when his career is ruined by scandal, goes to work as a consultant for the FBI. (Deadline.com)

LOSING IT (ABC) - Julie Anne Robinson has signed on to helm the single-camera comedy pilot, about three misfit adult siblings and their parents who - between divorce, new parenthood, early-onset dementia and let's just say life - are all losing it in different ways; and family is the only way they're going to find it. (Deadline.com)
MACHINE, THE (Syfy) - Bridger Zadina, Olly Rix and Malachi Kirby are the latest to board the drama pilot.

Rix then is set as James, "the principal test subject of a secret Ministry of Defense Artificial Intelligence program"; with Kirby as Aaron, "a lonely and out of place young man who created an A.I. as his best friend - benevolent, brilliant, supportive, and in many ways, his equal." Andrew Miller has also been confirmed as an executive producer. (Deadline.com)

(Deadline.com)
SCROLL, THE (FOX, New!) - Michael Elliot (Brown Sugar) has sold a potential drama to the network which "will reimagine some of the Bible's most popular stories in present day through a group of friends and colleagues that are modern-day versions of some of the Bible's most notable characters." 20th Century Fox Television is behind the hour with Relevé Entertainment's Holly Carter and Flavor Unit Television's Queen Latifah and Shakim Compere likewise executive producing. (Deadline.com)

James Ponsoldt is also now slated to direct. (Deadline.com)
