“BIONIC WOMAN” HAS A RECAST

    Moonlight is not the only new show to be recasting some of its characters, now BIONIC WOMAN has decided to change the actress portraying Becca (the main character’s deaf sister) played by Mae Whitman in the pilot, with someone else.

    An NBC spokesperson:

    “The decision was purely creatively driven. It is very common to change storylines, characters, actors after the initial pilot is shot.”

    The replacement hasn’t been chosen yet, but a rumor says that the “new” character might not be deaf anymore… to be continued

TNT MOVES “HEARTLAND” TO 8PM

    TNT has decided to move its new show HEARTLAND from its 10pm slot (after The Closer) to the 8pm slot.

    To replace Heartland at 10pm, TNT will debut its new show SAVING GRACE (starring Holly Hunter) on July 23rd. TNT is hoping Saving Grace will do better in this timeslot.

    I am still confused about what Saving Grace is about. My guess is it’s either going to be really good or really bad.

“STARGATE” DIRECT TO DVD MOVIE DELAYED

    The STARGATE movie Ark of Truth has been delayed until the first half of 2008. The second Stargate film, Continuum, has also been delayed.

    Stargate: Ark of Truth will resolve:

    the two-year Ori story arc that was left unresolved in the somewhat bland SG-1 series finale.

    Stargate: Continuum will be about:

    missing teammates Teal’c and Vala and a timeline gone haywire.

    Rumors are that if those movies are successful, MGM would like to release two Stargate movies a year.

    How cool is that? I am not a Stargate SG-1 fan, but even I can see the good news this is. I wish they would do this with all my favorite shows that got cancelled.

“ACCORDING TO JIM” BACK ON ABC

    I didn’t even know this show was cancelled (well actually I don’t even watch this show), but it seems that ACCORDING TO JIM was resuscitated by ABC and given a seventh season of 18 episodes.

    Why couldn’t the CW do that with Veronica Mars (yes, still bitter…)
