Fox, CW Whittle Project Slates
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Fox and the CW have followed CBS's lead and cut their development slates. Fox let go of about two dozen scripts, while the CW dropped about a dozen. ABC is said to be close to implementing a similar slate reduction, while NBC has been mum about its plans. Last week, CBS was the first network to release scripts, dropping about 20, mostly on the drama side. The cost-reduction moves by Fox, the CW and CBS come on the heels of the termination of about 70 overall deals by the five major TV studios under the pacts' force majeure provisions last week.
