The network, hot on the success of 'Will and Grace,' has picked up four multicamera comedies to pilot. NBC has picked up its first comedy pilots of the 2018-19 season, looking to proven producers like Mike Schur (The Good Place), Sean Hayes (Grimm) and Tom Werner (The Cosby Show, Roseanne) to help the network cut through a cluttered landscape. Ordered to pilot are Warner Bros. Television's Friends-in-Law and a trio from in-house studio Universal Television —Like Family, Abby's and So Close.
NBC is moving closer to finding its version of Lost. The network has handed out a formal pilot order to Manifest, a thriller written by Jeff Rake (The Mysteries of Laura) and described as a high-concept mystery thriller in which a plane disappears from radar and returns years later after being untraceable and presumed lost at sea. Manifest landed at NBC in August with a sizable put-pilot commitment.
ABC is rebooting one of its history-making dramas. The network has handed out a pilot order to a reboot of Get Christie Love, the 1970s drama that starred Teresa Graves as the titular detective. Until Kerry Washington in Scandal, Graves was the only African-American female lead in a U.S. network drama. The order comes 44 years — and a day — after Get Christie Love premiered on ABC. Pitch alum Kylie Bunbury will take on the role of the famed detective originally played by Graves.
Correction: Teresa Graves was the first African-American woman to lead a network TV DRAMA. (Diahann Carroll starred in ‘Julia,’ a comedy that bowed on NBC before ‘Get Christie Love.’) http://bit.ly/2BnCe7S
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
