New Aquaman Pilot

Ok, wow. Things may well start moving fast now. Hollywood Reporter is reporting that an Aquaman pilot has been approved.

For those of you with no clue how television in the US works, let's have a quick and dirty primer. This is not completely accurate, but it will give you a rough idea of how things work. At any given time, there are thousands of "projects" in the works. Rarely, a "project" will be given pilot approval, which is to say the go ahead for a pilot is given. This is where Aquaman is right now. Of shows given such approval, many, but not all, have a pilot made. Of shows that have a pilot, a few get series approval. But not all. There are a lot of orphan pilots out there.

The odds are still against an Aquaman show being made, except that it seems to be getting the fast-track treatment for some reason. I'll attempt to keep on top of the news, but I'm not an insider. For more current information, check out AquamanTV.Com.
