Megan Mullally joins ‘Party Down’


Although this isn’t that important, I’ll say it as I love Party Down and Megan Mullally.


Emmy winner Megan Mullally has joined Starz’s original comedy series “Party Down.”

On the show about a Los Angeles catering team, she will play Lydia Dunfree, a middle-aged refugee from a lousy marriage who leaves small town life to move to Hollywood where her 13-year-old daughter Escapade hopes to make it as an actress.

“Party Down” has been looking to fill the void left by the departure of Jane Lynch who co-stars on Fox’s “Glee.”

Production on the second season of “Party Down” begins in mid-September in Los Angeles. The premiere is tentatively scheduled for April 2010.

Mullaly most recently starred in ABC’s “In the Motherhood.”

NBC (a US network) has picked up the rights to broadcast a live-action drama based on DC Comic’s Midnight Mass. The storyline revolves around Adam and Julia Kadmons, a sophisticated, globe-trotting husband and wife team, who solve supernatural mysteries and fight crime.

Writers Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts will pen the script for Warner Bros TV and Jinks/Cohen Co, who will produce the project.

Could this pick up be a further step towards comic adaptions as this comes with the news AMC will adapt Walking Dead. FOX’s comic adaption of Human Target premiere’s January 20th 2010 (Tuesday 9/8c) for the US (no word from UK channels).

FIVE to air FLASHFORWARD within days of US


The US show which debuts September 24 on ABC, will premiere a week later on FIVE. The turnaround by new five controller Richard Wolfe (who had been controller of Sky1) would allow the new ‘LOST’ drama to follow the close airing of the US much like Sky1 shows LOST and 24.

So how will Flashforward perform? Will it be a massive hit for FIVE? Could it beat CSI out for the top US show in the UK in veiwership?

Mad Men renewed for Season Four


Cable network AMC has renewed Mad Men for a fourth season, according to reports. Which is not surprising seeing as the show brought in 4.5 million (according to Digitalspy) veiwers for its 3rd season premiere. However for UK fans I’m not sure Mad Men will return to BBC Four (though this is just a hunch) for its current 3rd season as the show 2nd season ratings were in short – terrible. Although (despite promotion – which is lost on many american shows on the BBC) a moderate premiere of around 250,000 veiwers the show quickly lost veiwership. Loosing its place in the channel’s top 10, meaning it was beaten by repeats of other shows – which even for an imported drama is bad.

MTV to remake another show (or film): TEEN WOLF


MTV has announced plans to remake the movie ‘Teen Wolf’ in to a series, MTV’s Liz Gateley stated:

‘It has a fresh take and is very different from the original…It has more of an American Werewolf in Paris feel to it. It’s a dramatic thriller with two best friends in the center who provide a great comedy element: They are two very relatable characters on the outer circles of popular cliques.’
