Based on a reader comment on an earlier post, I'm not sure whether to call this pilot "War of '04" as I've been seeing it or "Madso's War" which is apparently another possible name. For those that missed the previous posts (here) War of 04 is a pilot with a story line about the mob set in Boston. Everything that I had read previously said that this was a pilot for Spike TV. But according to a recent Globe blurb, Spike hasn't officially picked it up yet.

Contrary to what you may have read elsewhere, Spike TV has not yet picked up the pilot for "War of '04." But the show, which is loosely based on Whitey Bulger's Boston mob saga, does sound promising. "I can't speak highly enough of the experience," says actress Judy McIntyre, who played the mom to Matthew Marsden's crooked character. "I mean, Sheila Jaffe cast it, so you know it's got some great people." (Jaffe's credits include "The Sopranos" and "Entourage.") The oldest sister of New Kid Joey McIntyre, Judy told us she also auditioned for a role in "Bunker Hill," the TNT pilot starring New Kid Donnie Wahlberg and Bridget Moynahan. "But I just didn't have connections, I guess," she joked.

I'm sure it's just a matter of time before it gets picked up. With Dana White as the executive producer, I'm sure he can twist some arms and at the very least get the pilot picked up.
