Showtime is picking its material very carefully, it seems. The network has rejected a few high-profile pilots, including the planned "L Word" spinoff with Leisha Hailey (above), the Matthew Perry comedy "The End of Steve," and "Ronna and Beverly," a comedy from Jenji Kohan from "Weeds" about two middle-aged women who wrote a dating guide for Jewish singles.

Still possible for Showtime, though, is "Possible Side Effects," a drama created by Tim Robbins. The series stars Josh Lucas and focuses on a family made wealthy by the pharmaceutical industry.

Added on Monday: Showtime has also passed on the Robbins series, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
