Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly told the Television Critics Association tour what his netlet is up to:
* “Prison Break” is cancelled. “The show is just played out,” said Reilly. Its last episodes will take over the Friday “Termintor” timeslot April 17. (I don't watch the show, but I bet in the series finale they finally get out of prison!)
* “Virtuality,” the space-set sci-fi pilot from Ron Moore that has not yet received a series order, is being recut. “It’s a little dense,” said Reilly.
* “Boldly Going Nowhere,” the outer-space comedy pilot from the team behind “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” may be going nowhere. Fox has ordered its pilot reshot.
* Reilly calls “Fringe,” which is getting a post-“American Idol” slot “a keeper,” perhaps implying a second-season renewal.
* On “Dollhouse”: “… we’re going to let the show play out for 13 episodes ... if we can do some business there it will be a great thing for the future.”
