Creator of Everwood jumps over to the alphabet network

Everwood creator is coming to ABCIt looks like Everwood is really, really, really, really not coming back. You want proof? Well, how about the creator of the series, Greg Berlanti, leaving Warner Brothers TV and relocating to ABC and its sister production company Touchstone TV. Still don't believe me? Gosh, you're stubborn.

Berlanti, the creator of the recently canceled WB drama as well as the critically acclaimed Jack & Bobby (also canceled), has two drama pilots in development for ABC. One of them, a drama entitled Eli Stone, has earned a pilot order from the network. The other untitled drama, about a wealthy family seen through the eyes of their lawyer, has a script order.

According to Zap2it, Eli Stone, will center on a a lawyer (not the same one who represents the wealthy family) who thinks he is becoming a prophet because of visions he is having. Berlanti hopes that the show will discuss the subject of spirituality with a heartfelt sense of humor. The script for the show was written by Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim, who worked on Jack & Bobby as well as Law & Order and CSI:Miami.

If Everwood was moved to ABC I would watch it and I am pretty sure that is the only program on ABC that I would watch. I really enjoy Everwood and am so glad I tivo'd the last one (2hrs).

Maybe Berlanti can re-sell EVERWOOD to ABC Family and bing it back - why take a chance creating new television - when EVERWOOD was already a success. Narrow minded network execs is what's making TV a worthless place.
