Could Mork be headed back to Earth? It seems Robin Williams’ bite from the TV acting bug might have been bigger than his recent ‘Louie‘ and ‘Wilfred‘ appearances, as the legendary funnyman may have his eye on a new gig at CBS. But what could have lured Williams back to a regular role after over 30 years off the tube, and why does the project have ‘Mad Men‘s Don Draper feeling a shiver up his spine?
From just about the minute people heard that NBC was developing an adult musical series about Broadway show-business, ‘Glee‘ comparisons and contrasts flew left and right. Now that ‘Smash‘ has come and establish itself as a separate entity, will ‘Fame‘ face the same stigma upon returning to TV? Will ‘Fame’ face greater scrutiny now that ‘Glee’ is headed to New York, or will people remember which came first? Who’s behind the new series?
Ever since the departure of Steve Carell from ‘The Office,’ rumors have swirled that the series would either reboot, or close its doors entirely, particularly after the show struggled to find its footing absent its headlining star in season 8. Stars departed, a spin-off geared up, and now the verdict has officially arrived that ‘The Office’ season 9 will indeed be the show’s last. But, will any major characters return? And what’s the big twist?
Well that certainly didn’t take very long, but then again the last thing you want to do is be shaky around Michael J. Fox. Horribly bad taste aside, Michael J. Fox fans can rest easy knowing that the former ‘Family Ties’ star will officially return to TV, as NBC outbid the other major networks to land the actor’s upcoming family comedy project. Still, it took a pretty penny on the part of the peacock to lock down the Fox, so what about the offer lured him back to NBC?
It’s been kind of a slow day for TV news, what with most of the major Television Critics Association press tour panels having taken place, but in some cases a slow day is just the calm before the storm. That’s why we’re equally delighted, bewildered and horrified to announce that ‘The Brady Bunch’ will be gracing our TV screens once more in the near future, with a rebooted cast. Also, Vince Vaughn is behind it. Yeah, it’s that kind of day.
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.
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?
