Yesterday, the NFL Network filed a discrimination complaint to the FCC against the Comcast Corp. NFL Network alleges Comcast violated federal law pertaining to equal treatment requirements.

David Alan Basche will star with Debra Messing in USA Network’s new series The Starter Wife.

It is likely ABC will pick up the David E. Kelley pilot Life on Mars taking it to series, tho rumors abound whether or not Kelley will chose to be a part. Reportedly, financial considerations are making him think twice. ABC Studios and 20th TV may jointly produce and October Road creators Josh Appelbaum, Andrew Nemec and Scott Rosenberg are also in talks about executive producing. However, the deciding factor of where Life on Mars ends up is Kelley’s decision as he created the U.S. version and owns the rights to it. Life on Mars is based on a British series about a 21st century detective working in the 1970s.

Spike TV has a handful of new one-hour pilot projects in development, according to Variety:

  • River Men – about workers who steer large barges with cargo down the Mississippi River.
  • USA vs. the World – Americans in dangerous occupations go head to head against their foreign counterparts.
  • Tank & Cobra – spotlights two real-life bounty hunters.
  • Human Predators – profiling men who take others lives
  • Total Nonstop Action – about a Nashville-based professional-wrestling organization that emphasizes athleticism in addition to muscle strength.
  • Caught in the Action – a hidden camera show.
  • Surviving Terror – Cade Courtley just signed on as host.
  • Idiot Hall of Fame – a 30m late-night show that showcases video footage of men doing stupid things.

:   Lawmakers and entertainment industry parties remain divided on the issue of net neutrality, based on widely differing testimony given in a House Subcommittee meeting on Tuesday. Hannah Montana producer Steve Peterman endorsed the Internet Freedom Preservation Act sponsored by Rep. Ed Markey on behalf of the WGA West, describing the internet as the “new television.” RIAA CEO Mitch Bainwol came out against it, arguing the marketplace should be given the freedom to regulate itself to protect against piracy. An equal number of Markey’s committee members seemed to line up on each side, indicated a long, drawn out battle over the issue. Meanwhile NCTA President Kyle McSlarrow defended Comcast’s actions to manage P2P traffic, noting the MSO was working toward developing techniques to regulate traffic without singling out individual applications. In other words, they’re trying to slow Bit Torrent users without appearing to be targeting them.  Full edition: CYN DIGITAL.
