JJ Abrams' Shelter Pilot Ordered
JJ Abrams just might have another show on the air next year to replace the Fringe whose ratings continue to find new lows. The CW orderd the drama Shelter from One Tree Hill's Mark Schwahn and produced through Abrams' Bad Robot production company. Deadline describes the show as "set at a historic New England summer resort where the new and returning staff attend to the practical, emotional and often comical needs of the guests while navigating friendships, rivalries and romances of their own." The order is just for a pilot episode which is a way for CW executives to test the concept to see if they like it enough to order more episodes for next year's schedule.
