The play is based on the trial of Adolph Eichmann.

The shift to movie pilots de- monstrates the opportunity tele- vision offers to turn a profit from the development of new properties. Said a studio spokesman: "The day is long gone when a studio would make a pilot on speculation with its own money. You've got more pilots than ever now because they go on the air By JERRY BUCK a movie goes on the air the HOLLYWOOD (AP) The advertising revenue pays for its television movie has become the major means of developing new series during the last few years. Of the 70-plus shows now being considered for series in the 1972-73 season, more than half will be aired first as movies. In I he pest, such shows as NBC Mystery Movie, The Bold Ones, Medical Centre, Marcus Welby, MD and Hawaii Five-0 were tested first as films. The television movie offers two advantages as a pilot vehicle: First, the series concept and the cast got an audition under bat- tlefield conditions. "It's better than testing in a j theatre.'' said a network execu- live, "because people are react- ing in a normal way at home." "They've got the can of beer out or the baby's crying." The movies that get the most impressive ratings, of course, get prime consideration. PAYS FOR SELF Second, and more important to I lie networks, the TV movie provides an abundance of pilots at little out-of-pocket cost. When where the cost can be written off." For the next few weeks top executives at ABC, CBS and NBC will be closeted in screen ing rooms looking at movies and other pilots, putting to- gether the schedules for next fall. With about 60 hours of new shows to choose from, and with probably less than 20 hours' opening in the schedules at all three networks, it means that two-thirds of the movie pilots will make only a solo flight.
