Okay, so LB walks into the room and says to us minions, “Hey, minions, I need one of you to watch a web series called THE NEW ADVENTURES OF PETER AND WENDY and write a short review for TVWriter™.”

Knowing that Our Beloved Leader is a huge sucker for anything about Peter or Wendy or Captain Hook or any of those folks, one of us (nope, ain’t saying who) innocently asked, “Why don’t you do it?”

To which LB replied. “I did the first half. Watched it, I mean.”

“And?”

“That’s as far as I can go.”

“Cuz you loved it but acknowledge that you’re biased in favor of the underlying material?”

“Not quite.”

“Cuz you loved it but your hand is broken so you can’t type?”

“Not exactly.”

“Cuz you’re so spellbound by what you saw that you don’t want to ruin your high by verbalizing your feelings?”

“Just watch the damn thing!” LB thundered, and stomped out the door.

So, um, we did. All of us.

And then we understood why he couldn’t write the review.

Cuz we can’t either. And if you watch this pilot episode, you’ll – heh – see why:

EXCLUSIVE: One of the first high-profile series projects for next season is coming together. 20th Century Fox TV and studio-based Imagine TV are developing The League Of Pan, a fairytale-themed drama series that takes on the story of Peter Pan. Based on an idea by up-and-coming writer Brian McCauley Johnson, League Of Pan is described as a re-imagining of the Peter Pan mythology. Set in modern day, it centers around the Lost Boys and takes place 10 years after they’ve left Neverland. Imagine TV and 20th TV are in the process of searching for a showrunner who would co-write the pilot script with Johnson. With a showrunner on board, the project will be taken out to the networks.
