UPDATED: NBC has whittled its new series hopefuls, passing on a number of pilots before proceeding with its final round of pickups. Those that are not going forward include single-camera comediesSpaced Out, a workplace comedy from Bill Lawrence; What About Barb?, a female-led reboot of 1991 movie;  the coming-of-age untitled Kourtney Kang half-hour; as well as the network’s sole multi-camera pilot, sibling comedy Relatively Happy  from Max Mutchnick and Jeff Astrof. That leaves the Tina Fey-produced The Sackett Sisters and Mindy Kaling-Charlie Grandy’s Champions as the only remaining comedy contenders to join A.P. Bio on NBC’s schedule next season.

On the drama side, Warren Leight medical drama pilot aka Shelter as well as thriller Redliners also are not going forward. With Rise and For God and Countryalready picked up, VR drama Reverie has been rumored to follow them soon, with the female-centric Good Girls in contention for what likely will be the final NBC drama spot.

The passes mean that NBC will own 100% of all of its new series for the fist time in a long time if not ever. Its outside pilots this year were Spaced Out, Kourtney Kang, What About Barb? and Warren Leight.
