THE SIXTH GUN
Pitch: A drama based on the best-selling supernatural graphic novel that follows the story of six mythical guns, each with its own other-worldly powers. Michiel Huisman, Laura Ramsey star.
Why It Should Have Worked: Big online following, and presumably NBC learned a thing or two after rejecting a certain other comic book project (you know, the one with the zombies?).
Why It Didn’t: I’m told NBC felt it played too much like a geeky Syfy show and not enough like a big broadcast network show. Also, notice NBC greenlit a bunch of crime dramas this cycle; the network is trying to go for super-broad CBS-style concepts instead of niche ones.
