I've separated the TV and Online series from the movie section. This should make it much easier to search for a specific show.

Rumors abound regarding series that are "under development". And there are a lot of hurdles a project must clear before it actually becomes a released series. On this page, I'll keep track of the genre related rumors and developments until a project is actually given a release date. At that point, I'll move it to one of the "Upcoming" pages based on the expected year of initial release, even if the release date is a general timeline. 

Although they may be ephemeral, the idea that these TV shows may happen is pretty exciting, and I'm happy to follow along as the ideas either evaporate or congeal.
