NETWORKS PLAN 'END OF AMERICA' SHOWS
The TV networks are getting edgier in their '06 pilot plans.
The nets have filled their development slates with a bevy of brave ideas and bold format experiments, VARIETY reports on Monday, including shows about THE END OF AMERICA!
ABC alone has at least two would-be shows set in post-apocalyptic America ("Resistance" and "Red & Blue") while Gavin Polone and Bruce Wagner are teaming for the comfy-sounding plague drama "Four Horsemen" at CBS (which also is developing "Jericho," about life in a small town after America is destroyed).
Says Fox exec VP Craig Erwich: "The creative community appears to be really inspired this year," he says. "It was an exciting time to be buying. I came away pretty encouraged about network TV."

Not sure what I think of this. I love all the sci-fi/fantasy end of the world movies but if the last two network movies on this topic (category 7 "End of the World" and another similarly titled one about the desturction of Chicago) are any indication this will be utter garbage. I know they could turn out to be good but for some reason I am guessing it will be the typical unbelieveable junk the networks love to feed us.
