Networks Ponder Poststrike landscape

What will television look like when the strike ends, and how is the next season going to be changed? Beyond the conviction that some scripted television series will be replaced by reality shows, network and production studio executives are expressing hope that one outcome of the strike will be a different, and much cheaper, process for getting scripted shows on the air.
That means more shows bought without pilots, more work from established writers and less from newcomers, and a rollout of new shows that extends throughout the year instead of being concentrated in September. Bill Carter writes: NY Times
