After some unconfirmed news on whether the pilot would be moving forward, it’s officially confirmed that the CW will not proceed with Searchers. Really unfortunate news as the pilot sounded really great, but I’m hoping the pilot they shot would be released.

After several days of deliberations, the CW has opted not to proceed with pilots Insatiable and Searchers. Insatiable is being shopped elsewhere, and I hear there is interest.

Insatiable had strong internal support, though it was different than anything else on the CW. Meanwhile, Searchers had a bumpy ride and required re-shoots, but the final cut came in OK, and the project had great pedigree coming from The 100 creator Jason Rothenberg and the network’s top producer Greg Berlanti.

Great, exciting news, guys! Zane is set as the male lead in the CW drama pilot, Searchers. You can check out the synopsis below. It sounds promising, and hope it gets picked up to series!

Written by Jason Rothenberg, Searchers is about a group of unlikely heroes who find themselves on the journey of a lifetime. Ten years after the death of their parents, Cooper (Holtz) and his free-spirited sister Fable are forced to team up when they learn that their mother’s terrifying and bizarre stories might be a road map to discovering the great legends, myths and unexplainable mysteries of the world. Holtz’s Cooper is a brilliant tech innovator and former soldier who has accepted his parents’ deaths. But all that changes when Fable drags him on a dangerous mission to learn what truly happened to them 10 years ago.
