In spite of NBC’s pre-’Red Dragon’ straight-to-series drama ‘Hannibal‘ not being present at the past Upfront event, a considerable amount of buzz surrounds the series. After all, to put Hannibal Lecter on TV you’d need some ace casting, no? We already knew that Hugh Dancy would take the role of a young agent Will Graham, but we’ve been tepidly swirling our Chianti waiting for news of the man himself. No longer!
Brace yourself, ‘Private Practice‘ fans. This may be the end. We’ve already endured a bit of heartache that ‘Private Practice’ would be losing its leading man Tim Daly for the sixth (and potentially) final thirteen-episode season, but now reports are swirling that the ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘ spin-off is definitely on its last legs. Will series lead Kate Walsh stick with the show after seven years as Dr. Addison Montgomery, as it heads into its next run of episodes?
It’ll always be a shame to us that Norm MacDonald never took off the way Will Ferrell did following ‘Saturday Night Live.’ Both great ‘Saturday Night Live’ stars and breakout performers, yet MacDonald never found the film success or popularity of Ferrell in any of his comedies. But, you know what Will Ferrell never had? His own talk show on TBS!
Let the reign of Seth MacFarlane continue! Where once ‘Family Guy‘ had been cancelled and seemingly gone forever, eight years later FOX announces that the series will indeed return for an 11th season, while its spiritual spin-off ‘American Dad‘ will return for an eighth alongside it. So with Seth MacFarlane’s first two series renewed, what’s to become of ‘The Cleveland Show?’
It’s official! Waffles for everyone! Save for ‘The Office,’ as of now NBC has renewed all of its best single-camera sitcoms for additional seasons! One night after Leslie Knope had her big victory in Pawnee City Council, NBC has opted to renew ‘Parks and Recreation‘ for an additional season! Joining ‘Parks’ for an additional season is freshman parenting comedy ‘Up All Night,’ but the real question remains: just how many episodes will each renewal see?
Now that both ‘Community‘ and ‘Fringe‘ have been officially saved for cancellation, it feels like most TV-goers can breathe actual sighs of relief, few other series coming so close to the bubble. Still, after NBC and FOX‘s laundry list of pickups, things have been curiously quiet on the front of ABC. ABC maintains less bubble series to be sure, but how much longer until we can expect relief? No longer!
It doesn’t seem to matter that the original ‘Law & Order‘ has fallen by the wayside, that series star Christopher Meloni has since departed, or how old and parody-able the franchise has become, NBC isn’t ready to give up on ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ just yet. More than just a renewal however, NBC look to keep franchise creator Dick Wolf very happy with a new deal including an order for a new original series. More procedurals? Read on…
Though the negotiation efforts were far tamer than last year’s mad dash scramble to replace Charlie Sheen in CBS’ most popular sitcom, now ‘Two and a Half Men‘ fans can rest easy that Walden, Alan and Jake will return for a tenth season of the long-running series. Whether or not they secured the lucrative pay hikes sought, is another matter.
It’s been a solid two years since ‘LOST‘ finally ended its historic run with the divisive, yet aptly-titled “The End,” but the rumor mill hasn’t stopped churning with ideas and possibilities for a way to continue the Island stories so richly chronicled on ABC. After all, with many of ‘LOST’s mysteries still unresolved, even by the supposed “epilogue” included on the DVD, isn’t a return trip due?
Boy, that Vince Vaughn sure has his plate full these days, and we’re not talking about craft services (okay, probably that too.) Between re-teaming with ‘Wedding Crashers’ star Owen Wilson for ‘The Internship,’ potentially taking on ‘The Rockford Files,’ and developing an FX dominatrix drama, just how will he manage to cram in a new ABC sitcom with Tony Danza? And which of them will be the boss?
Somewhere in a California mansion, Will Smith is laughing maniacally as he signs the checks from ‘Men in Black 3,’ and gazes over his Hollywood kingdom while taking a deep spiritual peace in the life he’s led, the children he’s raised, and the cinematic memories he’s created. Suddenly, Tom Jones’ music could be heard in the distance, and Will knew that Alfonso Ribeiro had eclipsed his legacy forever.
It’s hard to think that an entire generation of young folk are more intimately familiar with the ‘Star Trek‘ of J.J. Abrams‘ reboot franchise, given the decades worth of 5+ TV series, and 10 resulting films, but the idea of bring ‘Star Trek’ back to TV is hardly a new one. So what are the odds of seeing that materialize in the near future?
