Rent with woe and grief


NBC has passed on Reconstruction. (f/k/a The Crossing, a/k/a Round II for Martin Henderson + Rachelle Lefevre, stars of yesterday's featured fanvid. It's clear, now, why I picked yesterday to post it.)

Passed.  It will not exist.  I...I cannot actually seem to force this fact into my brain.

I refreshed the internet 10,000 times yesterday waiting with physically nauseated excitement/dread waiting to hear the opposite news, because it is just CRUEL to make the last line of this paragraph come true after all my hope and despair: 

 technically, I'm in a win/win position now, right? Either my show lives, or the new show gets its best stars. Option 3 is that my show lives but Clark gets written off it, costing me the Pretty Factor, but paving the way for Ben/Lily and possibly still giving me two shows for the price of one. So...triple win potential? Unless both shows fall through. That would suck.

Screw you, NBC. Screw you and your stupid-ass Playboy Club. I've been obsessed with the idea of this pilot for almost two months now; I wanted it more than every single one of my returning series and frankly, I still do.

Rocking and sobbing in a corner now, kthnxbai.

In other news, Zach Gilford's pilot is also not picked up, because the universe is really, really, REALLY determined that I will not have even a scrap left over from my beloved Off The Map. At this point I'm afraid to even say I'm looking forward to the DVD extras, because I'm sure if I say that they will promptly decide it's not worth filming any.
