TCA News from Beverly Hills: On Saturday during the NBC portion of pres tour, entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt expressed that "flat is the new up" with regards to ratings and taked about a “year of improvement” and unveiling four projects in the works.

First up, a miniseries about Hillary Clinton to star Diane Lane; a six hour event on "Cleoptatra," a reimagined “Rosemary’s Baby”; another reboot of Stephen King’s “Tommyknockers" and a historical project with Mark Burnett about the pilgrims’ landing at Plymouth Rock.

Greenblatt spoke about Michael J. Fox's new comedy "The Michael J. Fox Show", saying, "There's universal love for him, and it will be sampled in a big way."

Greenblatt emphasized that networks “need to be in the event business…. All of (the new projects) have their own event nature.”

The role of Bill Clinton is still unknown,  and a completed script is not ready yet, Greenblatt said. He said the mini would likely air before Hillary Clinton formally declares herself to be a presidential candidate in 2016.
