The original Rockford Files creator Stephen J. Cannell spoke to Chris Mann of Retroality.TV about the potential new NBC series for Rockford that NBC has scrapped "for now." The series was getting a ton of buzz a few weeks back and now it is not picked-up for the fall. Chris gets an exclusive reaction from Cannell on David Shore's pilot script for NBC's now-dead Rockford Files reboot. Read what Cannell has to say about this! And speaking of Cannell, catch him on the season finale of ABC's Castle tonight, as he once again plays himself on the series.
Back to Rockford, yesterday NBC Entertainment President Angela Bromstad commented on why Rockford is not picked-up yet, "it would have had to be A++ and I think we had an A-/B+ pilot and wanted to get it right." So, Rockford might be re-developed for mid-season or even next fall. Or is NBC just saying that and won't re-develop at all? We'll see.
