UPN, CBS Eye SF Pilots

UPN and CBS have both given the green light to SF-themed pilots, Variety reported.

UPN has given the go-ahead to Triangle, from executive producers John Sakmar and Kerry Lenhart, which begins when the wife of a young doctor mysteriously disappears while they're on their honeymoon. In order to find out what happened, he stays on the island and begins to treat the residents and visitors, the trade paper reported.

CBS, meanwhile, has honored its put pilot commitment to Paramount's Threshold, about a female government agent who leads a team of military and scientific officers to respond to an alien threat. Bragi Schut wrote the pilot and will serve as co-executive producer, while David Goyer (Batman Begins) will executive produce and direct.

David Heyman (Harry Potter) will also executive produce, with Mark Rosen on board as co-executive producer.

I suspect Triangle is being influenced by the ratings bonanza of Lost. :squint: Threshold sounds like it might be interesting, though.
