Oh, my! From detectives and doctors to angels and zombies, The CW’s certainly kept an open mind with these pilot orders.

According to Deadline, The CW has ordered pilots for Awakening, Hart of Dixie, Heavenly and Cooper and Stone. With the success of AMC’s The Walking Dead, it’s no surprise that another network might try to tackle the zombie subject and it looks like The CW’s up for the task as Awakening follows two sisters who “come of age and face off during the start of a zombie uprising.”

Hart of Dixie follows a New York doctor who moves down south to run a medical practice. Heavenly follows an attorney and a former-angel as they work at a law clinic and try to help people. And Cooper and Stone is about two young female detectives in Chicago.

Below is the slightly more detailed information on the pilots, according to Deadline. It should be interesting to see what kind of casting news springs up for these projects.
Awakening, written on spec by William Laurin & Glenn Davis, centers on two sisters who come of age and face off against one another amidst the beginning of a zombie uprising. Reveille is co-producing the pilot with Warner Bros. TV, where the script has been laid off. Laurin, Davis, Howard T. Owens, Carolyn Bernstein and Todd Cohen are exec producing.

Hart of Dixie, from WBTV and Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage's Fake Empire, is a comedic drama centered on a young New York City doctor who inherits a medical practice in a small Southern town inhabited by an eclectic and eccentric group of characters. Leila Gerstein penned the script and is exec producing with Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage and Len Goldstein. This is Fake Empire's second pilot this afternoon, along with Georgetown at ABC.

Heavenly, written by Richard Hatem, is from CBS Studios and Fineman Entertainment. It centers on a dedicated young female attorney and a former angel, Dashiel Coffee, only recently turned human, who tackle cases together at the attorney's legal aid clinic – she saves clients’ butts while he saves their souls. As an angel, Dash never experienced feelings or emotions, and his “awakening” is a big part of the series, sometimes to hilarious effect. Hatem and Ross Fineman are exec producing.

Cooper and Stone, from writer-exec producer Laurie Arent and CBS TV Studios, is about two smart young female detectives on Chicago’s North Side who are best friends, equally adept at discussing fashion, music, pop culture as they are solving homicides.
