Not only are we anticipating the big buys out of Sundance for the independent film world, but there’s also been a lot of buzz surrounding the television production companies and the high-profile pilots being picked up for fall 2011. Anticipated pilots already being made include a remake of “Charlie’s Angels” for ABC, a new Sarah Michelle Gellar vehicle for CBS, a grown-up “Harry Potter” show for NBC and J.J. Abrams’ pilot about Alcatraz for FOX. The latest news from FOX also indicates that they’ve greenlit yet another pilot, this time from director and executive producer Antoine Fuqua, starring Ethan Hawke and titled “Exit Strategy.” The two last worked together on “Brooklyn’s Finest,” but Fuqua also directed Hawke to an Oscar nomination for “Training Day” (and Denzel Washington to a win for the same film).
