I am guessing that the fairy tale show is the comic book "Fables." I hope I am right. It is one of the best comics out there right now.

I'd hope so, but if that was the case what would Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz be "pitching"? I'm just assuming ABC has decided Willingham's edgier tone -- and the very expensive FX work that would be required to realise things like The Farm -- isn't going to work. Until I hear otherwise, I'm just assuming that 'Fables' is going to die in development hell.
