Ron Moore's 'grown-up Harry Potter' pilot ordered by NBC

I look forward to hearing more about this…

To my dismay, it doesn’t appear to be an adaptation of The Magicians by Lev Grossman (vote for it next book club round.)

I can’t wait to watch the pilot and then never any more

Other than the somewhat meh title, I’m definitely looking forward to hearing more about this (and it sounds more interesting than the other RDM project).

I am a little surprised this was pitched to NBC (or is it comcast now?) rather than a cable network.

NBC probably had more plans to continue in the vein of sci-fi/fantasy TV since the success of Heroes, Lost, V and The Cape even getting more than 4 episodes to air. A part of the deal was that Comcast would get up to 1500 more items to add to the On Demand programming catalog. Not to mention Comcast will gain access to past NBC shows that haven’t been available on demand.
