Bruckheimer pilots get call from NBC, WB
In a flurry of pilot activity Monday, producer Jerry Bruckheimer received two drama pilot pickups -- one at NBC for "E-Ring" and one at the WB Network for an untitled project from writer Jonathan Shapiro.

Separately, NBC has given a cast-contingent order to "Loved Ones," a comedy from "Will & Grace" veteran Jeff Greenstein and "3rd Rock From the Sun" vet Bob Kushell.

"E-Ring," from Bruckheimer TV and Warner Bros. TV, has been in the works at the network with a hefty commitment. Described as "The West Wing" set at the Pentagon, the defense-themed drama was created by David McKenna and Ken Robinson, a terrorism and military intelligence consultant for CNN and former Green Beret. McKenna, who penned the pilot script, is executive producing with Bruckheimer and Bruckheimer TV chief Jonathan Littman.
