Can You Spot the Fake Pilots?

With the writers' strike over and the Upfronts just two months away, networks are starting to check out their pilots for the Fall TV season. We've heard a lot about how this year might be different (fewer pilots overall, more networks waiting till midseason to launch their new shows), but one thing is the same: A whole bunch of ridiculous-sounding pilots are already on the docket.

Some of the descriptions in the quiz below are real shows the networks are considering for next season. Others are fake shows I made up just for kicks. Can you spot which ones have a chance of making it to a small screen near you? Good luck!
