ABC picks up 'Subergatory'; TNT has 'Generations'

UPDATED: Add Subergatory to the list of ABC pilot pickups.

That’s “Subergatory.” So if you want to use that while playing Scrabble tonight, have at it.

The show is described as a satirical family comedy about life in the suburbs. A New York City girl moves to a cookie cutter community only to discover that life in the ‘burbs is more frightening than any horror movie she’s ever seen.

Emily Kapnek (Parks & Recreation, Aliens in America) is the writer and executive producer.

UPDATE: TNT has picked up Generations to pilot. Here’s the storyline: This one-hour drama series crosses back and forth through time to follow the lives of three generations of the same family who have lived in the same house. The show comes to TNT from executive producer Robert Redford and writer/executive producer John Sacret Young (The West Wing, China Beach).
