Mission Control

This midseason comedy about a 1960s NASA team of aerospace enginers has been cancelled by NBC, with only a pilot finished. [Deadline]



HBO's pilot was referenced a lot by HBO's Chairman and Time Warner's CEO at Time Warner's Investment Day, which makes the show's full-season pick-up sound like a foregone conclusion. In particular, they praised star Anthony Hopkins in the same breath as discussing the new stars of True Detective's second season, Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn. The show is described as "a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin." [Deadline]
