The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that NBC has officially ordered a pilot for the hourlong show Day One. Created by Heroes writer/producer Jesse Alexander, Day One follows a small group of survivors after a "global catastrophe" basically wipes out the majority of the planet.
Hmm... Sounds like The Omega Man meets Jericho. But would it be too much to ask for a smidge of The Day After Tomorrow wackiness thrown in? Sounds like this one could be really rockin' (the Omega Man part), or really boring (the Jericho part).
