...wait until you hear about the four dozen pilots that won't premiere in September: We're not being treated to The Annihilator, about a subversive army of automatons, or The Spirit, about a masked crusader, or O'Hara, about a cop who uses martial arts instead of guns, or Lily, with Shelley Duvall as a museum curator. It's not a good year for stars. Among the pilots left in the hangar are those starring Tony Curtis as a spy, Stefanie Powers as a PR woman, Alan King as a retired businessman, Mac Davis as a foster father, Madeline Kahn as a TV reporter, Robert Conrad as a cop, David Soul as a Hong Kong private eye, Rita Moreno as a toy designer and the brothers Bottoms (Tim, Joe, Sam and Ben) as Hawaiian rich kids.
