Day One is an NBC sci-fi story about small band of survivors of some sorta apocalypse. Originally a 13-episode series, downgraded to a miniseries and now apparently the pilot will air as just a one-off tv movie, date tba. Wikipedia (??) reports that an NBC exec told the Television Critics Association earlie this year that, “It will be a pilot where you could see where it could go in series, but there will be a resolve at the end of the two hours. If the TV movie performs well the story may be continued.” On NBC, date and time tba.

Spotted an error? Have more up to date info? Sure, laugh like the superior being that you are, but do let the rest of us know, will you dear? An extra perogy for you at the next family feast.
