ABC Overhauls ‘Edgar Floats’

After Rand Ravich’s critically and fan acclaimed but vastly under-watched ‘Life’ was canceled by NBC many have been waiting on progress of his next project, the quirky ‘Edgar Floats’, about a police psychologist (Tom Cavanagh, ‘Ed’) who starts a new career as a bounty hunter for his ex’s father-in-law (Robert Patrick, ‘The X-Files’). The pilot didn’t make the cut at ABC’s upfronts, but made a comeback when the network finally ordered six more scripts (which are currently being written), a sign that they were not only interested in the direction Ravich would take the series, but giving it a chance of making the mid-season schedule.

However, last night it emerged that ABC have culled almost the entire cast, including Cavanagh, Alicia Witt (who would’ve played Edgar’s ex-wife), Derek Webster, Alex Solowitz, and Raoul Trujillo. Robert Patrick was the only one to survive the casting bloodbath. Patrick’s scene-stealing performance had been hailed by those that have seen the pilot, so it’s no surprise that he’ll be around for the new version, which was originally directed by Jace Alexander.

According to Deadline Hollywood’s Nellie Andreeva —

I hear ABC brass like the idea of Edgar Floats and the central character but the project is being re-conceived.

I would suggest they cast Damian Lewis and Sarah Shahi and “re-conceive” the show under the title ‘Life’. That would certainly make a large number of fans happy.
