False start for NBC's 'Heroes: Origins'


November 01, 2007 Fears of a writers strike may have already contributed to a decision NBC made Wednesday to pull the highly anticipated spinoff miniseries of its hit "Heroes" from a midseason launch. While the network hasn't officially canceled the spinoff, producers of the series have been given no indication of when it might get a spot on the schedule. Budget allocations made months ago for a range of scripted programs, many of which will not be feasible without sidelined writers, will likely be reconsidered and potentially shifted to strike-proof material like reality and news programs.
