Default Nicole Sullivan Stars in New ABC Pilot

According to reuters.com...
"Mad TV" alumna Nicole Sullivan has landed a role in ABC's comedy pilot "Hot Properties," playing one of four women working in a real estate office.
Apparently this show takes place in New York, but will be at least partially filmed at an upscale real estate agency on Los Angeles' Westside. No word yet on when it airs. Stay tuned for updates.

This is awesome news for Nicole fans. With her declining role on "King of Queens", I really hope this show gets picked up. Congratulations Nicole!

Very cool, sounds interesting. At least it's not a CSI type show.

Ah, so once again, Nicole faces the unenviable task of trying to rise to that elusive A-list status that she so richly deserves. Well, on a slight downside, I'm not 100% sure that real estate per se has much comic potential; then again, if anyone can make it hilarious, then it's Nikki Baby. The upsides to this scenario, however, are far more interesting to consider:

(1) If there is some double-entendre significance to the title "Hot Properties," then maybe it will be one of those strong-yet-sexy-businesswoman-in-their-mid-to-late-thirties deals like "Sex and the City" or whatever; and, well, that kind of show seems to have a strong appeal to other strong yet sexy businesswomen. In other words, it might be the kind of show that, should it become successful, would have syndication potential on Oxygen during those times when Ellen and Oprah aren't bogarting the air.

(2) Put three other lookers in the cast w/ St. Sully, and men will flock to it as well. And since, as all Nic nuts know, finding even one female co-star, let alone three, who have anything on Ms. S. either talent-wise or looks-wise would be a daunting task for any casting director...or whoever does the hiring for these things. (Can't you tell I've done my homework? ) In other words, if the planets align and whatnot and if the show is successful, then Nic could emerge as its breakout star a la Teri Hatcher on "Desperate Housewives."

(3) There could be some ripple effect from the huge success of "Desperate Housewives," the show which has almost singlehandedly saved ABC. If the producers and writers play their cards right (i.e., don't try too hard to make a copycat of "DH"), then Nicole & co. might be able to ride this wave of popularity to the top of the Nielsens. (Don't you just love my metaphors? God, I certainly do.)

(4) "Hot Properties" could potentially be a far more intelligent show than Nic's last unsuccessful pilot, the D.O.A. "We Are Family." That show, from what I could tell, didn't have much of a plot or potential for mass appeal; so even if ABC had picked it up this season, then it might have done Nicole's career more harm than good in the long run. Just a theory.

In summary, therefore, two-by-four, heretofore, in other words, so to speak, I'm actually feeling quite good about this one, for some reason. Now, I know that it's way too early to get excited; after all, Nic doesn't exactly have history on her side when it comes to new pilots. Still, fingers, eyes, chest hairs, ears, and teeth crossed, "Hot Properties" might be the one that turns Nicole Sullivan into a...well...hot property. (Didn't see that one coming, eh? ) Anyhoo, best of luck w/ this one, Golden Lady!

Hmmm...it's sad but I'm doubtful that this will get picked up. Every year since she left MADtv she has done a pilot and each year it doesn't go through.

It would be cool if it did, but I just doubt it will happen. It was weird, last year I got an e-mail from her management inviting me to the taping of the pilot. Of course I couldn't go because it would cost too much to go to LA. Anyone else get one of these invites? I'm not even sure how they got my e-mail or knew that I was a Nicole fan, but maybe it was through Planet MADtv.

Well ABC has been hot lately with shows like "Desperate Housewives" and "Lost" so maybe this could be the one that ends the curse for Nicole.

According to The Futon Critic, they are taping the pilot for "Hot Properties" on April 21.

They describe Nicole as having "one of the lead roles" on the show.

Well, if 40-something Botox queen Teri Hatcher can go from practically Z-list to A-list almost overnight, then I gotta believe that Nicole will someday make the jump from B/C+-list (or whatever the hell everyone says she is) to A-list at some point, whether it's with "Hot Properties" or some other future endeavor. Then again, considering how overrated Nicole Sullivan is...ahem, not that anyone around here actually thinks she's overrated...*achoo!**ef!**Jim Cockhurtz!**PitaPockets!**tarza!**clueless!**achoo!*

They just might have a chance to be picked up by a network since this is kind of inspired by the TV series "Desperate Housewives"

I think the newspaper that reported the story is in the Central Time Zone so the show in real life will air at 9:30 in the east coast.

Also it looks like Orlando Jones' drama didn't make the fall schedule maybe it's a midseason replacement series.
