(thefutoncritic.com) LIMELIGHT (ABC) - McG's long-in-the-works drama has received a pilot commitment from the Alphabet. The project, which is loosely based on the life of hip-hop producer Pharrell Williams, is a soap set around the teachers and students at a performing arts college in New York City. David S. Rosenthal was originally tapped to pen the pilot script but was replaced by K.J. Steinberg. David Semel is already on board to helm the hour and executive produce alongside McG, Steinberg and Leonard Goldberg for Warner Bros. Television and Wonderland Sound and Vision. Peter Johnson will also serve as a co-executive producer with Williams as a consulting producer.
