What's the process for a pilot to be picked up? Who judges them? Are they watched by a focus group, test group? What's the process of the pilot being picked up? Thanks in advance!

There was a good webinar on Stage32 about it recently.
In short, network heads make the decision, and they may well test screen the pilot and focus group it. But not always.
Thank y'all. Augustas, would you happen to have a link to the webinar. Regina, so I assume, the pilot is shot and submitted through agents and then the process may occur as you laid it out?
@S.W., sorry to say I'm now quite confused. Are you referring to network pilots or completely independently produced pilots?
I've only skimmed this piece on network TV, but it seems pretty accurate from a quick perusal. http://io9.com/why-do-so-many-tv-shows-get-greenlit-but-then-never-16814... Please do a little Googling on "how tv show pilots work." If you still have questions, I will try to answer them.
@regina. Thank you.
