NBC Picks Ups Two More Pilots, Will Work With Conan Again

By

NBC is reportedly about to pick up Garza, which stars Jimmy Smits as a Supreme Court justice who steps down to join a private practice. The show comes from none other than ... Conaco, Conan O’Brien’s production company! While Coco will surely be content to take NBC’s money, one suspects he will not be sitting in on many meetings with the network. NBC will also likely pick up another lawyer drama, David E. Kelley’s Kindreds, starring Kathy Bates, which may explain why it was willing to play hardball with lawyer drama Law & Order. Meanwhile, CBS picked up its first show, sitcom Mike & Molly, from Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre, about a couple that meets at a weight-loss group and can never escape the sound of a canned laugh track.
