Swingers and exorcist make CBS' wish list

cbs logoKeeping with its promise of shying away from procedurals, CBS has ordered pilots for two seemingly unusual series. The first is centered around an ex-priest who travels around performing exorcisms. It's called Demons. It's being created by Barbara Hall, who also created Joan of Arcadia, and executive produced by movie man Joe Roth.

The second series is called Swingtown and it sounds like it's bound for a 10 pm time slot. The series is set in the 1970s and is about a bunch of married couples who swap spouses. It's being created by Mike Kelley, writer and executive producer of The O.C.

Pilot season, by the way, is soon upon us. January is traditionally the time of year when the networks request pilots from all the television veterans and wanna-bes who have been pitching them this fall.

It will be interesting to see what people say about a show like SwingTown. Yes the lifestyle is alive and well and many people do visit their swingplace of choice. But, will it be successful as a television show?

Maybe it would work better on Showtime or HBO.

I will tune in!

Is there any possibility whatsoever that Swingtown will be any good if it's not on HBO or Showtime?

Hey Anna swinging is more alive and well in 2006 than ever before!
There's millions of couples and singles (especially women)that are on sites and chat rooms.
The only differance between now and then is its more private and through private clubs not like the public clubs of the 70's.
So maybe CBS has something there!,After all they are the #1 station as it is.
