A new ABC pilot is in the works called Castle, which according to Nikki Finke, will star Nathan Fillion as the lead. The director is Rob Bowman, who was executive producer on Daybreak, and also produced about 90 episodes of the X-Files from 1995-2000.
The good news here is that Fillion will be in a new series. It’s a drama and centers around a horror novelists that consults for the NYPD.
I absolutely love the guy ever since Firefly of course and was pretty bummed that the series Drive didn’t turn out to be better because it was just great to see him on TV again.
We’ll pass on more details about this pilot as we find out more.
