The CW network has plans to move forward with ordering pilots for three new television series. Based on the DC Comics’ character, Green Arrow, the series “Arrow” is one of the pilots ordered. Greg Berlanti is one of the individuals tied to the project, so this show may have potential. Berlanti has produced such shows like “Dawson’s Creek”, “Everwood”, “Brother & Sisters”, and more recently he co-wrote the DC Comics’ movie adaptation of “Green Lantern” starring Ryan Reynolds and he also directed the film “Life as We Know It” starring Josh Duhamel and Katherine Heigl. Seems like “Arrow” might be try to capitalize on the success of “Smallville” which had its series finale in 2011. Although the CW tried to bring “Aquaman” to the network, but the show never made it to air. Although the pilot episode is still available on iTunes. Justin Hartley was the lead in “Aquaman”, but when the pilot fell through he later starred as Green Arrow aka Oliver Queen and became a regular cast member on “Smallville”. However, according to Entertainment Weekly, Hartley is not being courted nor will be tied to the new series. Click to Continue Reading: Three New CW Pilots in the works
Summer is almost over, but don’t be sad! It just means that Fall 2011-2012 Television programming will return soon! So mark your calendars and take note of when your favorite returning and new shows premiere on CBS, NBC, Fox, CW, and ABC.
Some new and highly anticipated shows to note are ABC’s “Once Upon a Time”, CW’s “Ringer” with Sarah Michelle Gellar (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), “Person of Interest” on CBS, and Fox’s “X-Factor” and “New Girl” starring Zooey Deschanel.
This year also marks the final seasons for NBC’s “Chuck”, and ABC’s “Desperate Housewives”. So what shows are you looking forward to watching? Thus far, I find ABC’s new Fall Series line-up to be the most intriguing.
In addition to promoting “Astro Boy”, Kristen Bell mentioned that the possibility of a “Veronica Mars” movie may not happen unless Warner Bros. decides to fund it, but yet the possibility of guest spotting on “Gossip Girl” (she is the voice of Gossip Girl) is not entirely out of the question. As for Freddie Highmore, he mentions in the interview a few of his upcoming projects so check out the full interview below.
Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford has been cast as the lead in the remake of “Footloose”. “Footloose” originally came out in 1984. Original cast include Kevin Bacon, Lori Singer, and John Lithgow. Kenny Ortega is set to direct the remake. Chace Crawford is replacing Zac Efron who was originally attached to the film.
I wonder if this is just a remake of the original movie or are they adapting the musical stage version to the screen. The only question that remains is: Can Chace dance and/or sing?
