Straight out of the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour, it looks like some changes are on the way for CBS’ Person of Interest. As long as they keep the bromance alive, I’m fine with it.
Updated with video:
Although “extremely pleased” with the ratings performance of Person of Interest, Tassler confirmed the network requested a significant creative change. “We felt that the Carter [Taraji P. Henson] character was somewhat marginalized. We felt that the Carter character was too peripheral, [so] we asked [producers] if they were open to bringing [her] into the superhero cave. It was a plan that they had in place, but more for the end of the season. We asked them if they were open to moving that up. We felt it was a key ingredient to [help] the show grow and expand.”
This is good news to me. Her character was getting pretty boring. Can’t wait for the new episode tomorrow!
This sounds like good news doesn’t it? According to Deadline, moves are being made to keep Stephen Lang and Jason O’Mara for Terra Nova and producers are looking to rehaul the writing staff in a bid to get FOX to renew the show for a second season. Fingers crossed. I love this show and the cast. I’m so tired of seeing nothing but crime and medical shows on my tv. Plus, I gotta know what’s up with that boat thing.

Fox has not made a decision on a Terra Nova renewal, but the series’ producers are moving to secure key actors and beef up writer ranks to be ready for production on Season 2. The options on the cast of the prehistoric drama are up on December 31, and I’ve learned that pickups for stars Jason O’Mara and Stephen Lang are imminent. With the cast options’ expiration date looming, the network originally was expected to make a decision on the series last week, following a top-level meeting between the heads of 20th Century Fox, which produces Terra Nova, and Fox on December 16. That didn’t happen, but the pickup of sought-after actors O’Mara and Lang gives Fox a little bit of breathing room, and the network is now expected to make its decision in January. That would make for a very tight production schedule on Terra Nova, which has to begin filming in April to make a September premiere date because of the series’ extensive post-production, including visual effects.
The search is already underway for high-level writers to join executive producers Brannon Braga and Rene Echevarria in Season 2 as the network and studio are looking to elevate the writing on the show going forward. Last night’s two-hour season finale drew a 2.2 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.2 million viewers, a tad better than last week’s series low; it didn’t make Fox’s decision easier by making the case for a renewal one way or the other. And the network has to make the call on Terra Nova in a vacuum, before having seen its development for next season. (Fox faces similar pressure to rule on the future of veteran House next month to give the veteran series time for a proper sendoff should this be its final season.) Still, with strong DVR viewing, big international sales and Peter Chernin and Steven Spielberg behind it, Terra Nova at this point appears likely to be renewed.

On the heels of the phenomenal success of The Lion King 3D – which will cross the $80 million mark at the domestic box office today – The Walt Disney Studios has announced limited theatrical engagements for four of its classic films for the first time in 3D.

I understand Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid..but Monster’s Inc? Finding Nemo will probably be a classic in a few more years but is it really ready for a re-release?
Hmm. Start speculating Glee fans! Is Kevin Mchale the next member of the cast to try his hand at some solo work? Kevin is no stranger to music, formerly a member of the band NLT and ya know, he has the best male voice on the show..so we would definitely love to see some music from him. What do you think?
It should come as no surprise that the HBO drama True Blood has been renewed for a fifth season. The season will consist of 12 episodes and air next summer. Yay! I wish the seasons were longer. HBO is such a tease.
