LOST BOYS, THE (The CW) - "'Lost Boys' is a passion of mine personally, having Rob [Thomas] attached to it," Pedowitz said. "Once we get through this climate, we will make a determination on how best to proceed with Lost Boys. I'm hoping to keep it going." In the latest TV incarnation, based on the featured film, "when a mother and her Gen Z sons move to the seaside town where she grew up, they discover there's a sinister reason the local cool kids sleep all day, party all night, never grow up and never get old. Family bonds are tested as the brothers find themselves on opposite sides of a mythological struggle." (Deadline.com)

PERCY JACKSON (Disney+, New!) - Rick Riordan's literary-turned-feature hero is being eyed for a TV series at the streaming service. "We are very excited about the idea of a live-action series of the highest quality, following the storyline of the original Percy Jackson five-book series, starting with The Lightning Thief in season one," the author posted to social media. No other auspices were given for the project, which is expected to be produced by Fox 21 Television Studios. (@RickRiordan)
SUPERNATURAL (The CW) - "We already have five episodes in the can of 'Supernatural,' Jared [Padalecki] and Jensen [Ackles] will go back as soon as they are able to finish up the last two episodes and then Jared will go off to 'Walker,'" Pedowitz said about the series, which will see the its remaining episodes air Thursday nights at 8:00/7:00c this fall. "The two studios are in constant communication to make sure that this is a seamless handoff." Adding, "Everybody, the studio, exec producers, Jared, Jensen and Misha all want to end 15 years the right way. It is important that these two episodes they are shooting will be done the way they want to do them. We'll just wait it out. We're very much attached to this." (Deadline.com)
