pilots abc kyle killen sofia vergara david shore gi ABC orders pilots from David Shore, Sofia Vergara and Kyle Killen

The pilots just keep on coming into the weekend. On Friday (Jan. 25) ABC ordered pilot production to go forward on projects produced by Kyle Killen (“Awake,” “Lone Star”), Sofia Vergara (“Modern Family”) and David Shore (“House”).

Kyle Killen’s new drama pilot, “Influence,” is a workplace drama centered on two brothers — one a bipolar, genius psychologist and the other an ex-con — who head an agency that solves problems using the science of human motivation and manipulation. Killen will both write and executive produce the pilot.

“Killer Women” is based on the Argentine soap series, “Mujeres Asesinas,” and will be produced by Vergara, Ben Silverman, Martin Campbell, Luis Balaguer and Hannah Shakespeare (who also wrote the pilot script). The show will focus on Molly Parker, a tough and beautiful woman who happens to be the only female Texas Ranger.

“Doubt” is a legal drama written and produced by David Shore. In it, a former cop works as a low-end lawyer who uses both street smarts and charm to help his clients, court his ex-wife and battle his own demons.
