TVMcGby Jim Napier

McG’s Wonderland Sound and Vision has continued it's streak of prolific TV development. Deadline reports that the company has sold three projects to ABC, NBC, Fox and the CW, and also has several comedy and reality pitches in the works. McG is also set to direct his first pilot since 2007's Chuck. The company has 3 series on the air this coming season, with Chuck, Supernatural and Nikita. The company is based at Warner Bros. TV, after renewing it's deal with the studio through 2013.

Here is what McG had to say about the deal and his parnter Peter Johnson:

“Warner Bros. bet on us 10 years ago and has helped us build an amazing business. Peter doesn’t chase the same writers as everyone else: we look for people on the verge, and for people who can tap into the youthful vibe of our company as they approach storytelling for broadcast TV.”

Here is the list of new shows. Each will be executive produced by McG, Johnson and the writers on each show:

  • House Calls at ABC from The Whole Truth creator Tom Donaghy, repped by CAA. It centers on a doctor who quits his successful hospital practice after a scandal rocks his family and starts making house calls.
  • Untitled drama at NBC from ICM-repped Michael Oates Palmer (The West Wing). Described as a contemporary take on the Casablanca love triangle that blends romance, action, suspense and comedy, the project centers on the irrepressible American ambassador in a completely corrupt, dysfunctional, yet beautiful Eastern Europe country. When a visiting Congressman is killed, the US sends in the peacekeepers, and things get complicated when the general in charge brings his wife who happens to be the ambassador’s “one who got away.”
  • Convergence at Fox, from WME-repped Jason Rothenberg (Twilight Zonefeature). It centers on a brilliant but undisciplined mythology professor who, in the wake of a personal and professional scandal, moves his family from NYC to Charlevoix, the small Michigan hometown of his family practitioner wife. Looking for a fresh start, they get the adventure of a lifetime, because, “Charlevoix the beautiful” (as it’s known) has a secret: Miracles happen here.
  • Game On at Fox, from WME-repped Jeff Wadlow (Hail Mary). It’s a sexy action comedy about two best friends who are secretly working as spies for rival agencies.
  • Hustle at the CW, from WME-repped Jeremy Miller and Dan Cohn (That Was Then). Centers on five highly skilled people in their mid-twenties who come together when asked by the FBI to go undercover in order to combat youth-oriented crimes in Los Angeles. The stories will unfold through the POVs of the 5 undercover officers.
