ABC takes two more pilots

'Matadors' and 'True Blue' added to net's drama bullpen

ABC continued its pilot shopping spree Thursday with two more drama pickups: "Matadors" and "True Blue."

"Matadors," from Sony TV and writer/executive producer Jack Orman ("ER"), centers on two feuding families, one in the Chicago district attorney's office and the other opposing them in the city's most influential private law firm.

"True Blue," from ABC Studios, is a soap described as "The Big Chill" set in a homicide squad. It centers on a group of San Francisco homicide detectives who reunite to solve the murder of one of their own and, in the process, revive old passions, rivalries and friendships.

Based on a story by writer Jon Feldman ("Dirty Sexy Money") and ABC Studios-based producers Chris Brancato and Bert Salke, the pilot was written by Feldman and Brancato.

All three executive produce.

The orders follow the pickup of three pilots by ABC on Tuesday and Wednesday.
