It’s the end of the road for three pilots: A&E drama Occult and Comedy Central comedies Schlub Life and Bad Advice From My Brother. A&E actually passed on Occult three weeks ago, but producing studio ABC Studios kept it alive by shopping it around and engaged with conversations with potential buyers. Unfortunately they didn’t pan out and the project is now officially dead. Occult, produced by Michael Bay and written by James Wong, centered on an FBI agent (Josh Lucas) partnering with an agent specializing in the occult (Lynn Collins). Greg Hess’ Schlub Life was about two irresponsible best friends. Bad Advice From My Brother was written by Jordan Pope Roush based on his blog of the same name.
