Pitch: When a brilliant, late 19th century New York doctor and his family are given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to relocate to a frontier mining town run by a powerful, but mysterious tycoon, they quickly realize that not everything in Big Thunder is as it seems. Pierce Gagnon, Ana de la Reguera, Ed MacLiam star.
Why It Should Have Worked: It will be the next Pirates of the Caribbean.
Why It Didn’t: Sources vary on why this was turned down, especially when ABC picked up so many other dramas. One said simply that the pilot “had a lot of problems,” while another more politely offered that it was better what you might expect from the script, but still not strong enough.
