Dushku, Logue and Hemingson involved in new network projects

donal logueActors Donal Logue and Eliza Dushku, along with writer/producer David Hemingson, recently signed on for new network projects.

Logue stars in FOX's Barry Sonnefeld-directed comedy pilot, Hackett, as a "bad-boy literary luminary" who goes from teaching at Yale to teaching at a public school in Ohio. The pilot also stars Rachel Boston (American Dreams) and Morgan Murphy. Logue was last seen on ABC's short-lived The Knights of Prosperity. Sonnefeld will work on Hackett, as well as direct episodes of Pushing Daisies, a new series for ABC premiering Wednesdays this fall.

Eliza Dushku (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Tru Calling) has signed a talent deal with the FOX network and Twentieth Century Fox TV to star in a not-yet-decided-upon new project.

Finally, writer/producer and former lawyer David Hemingson (creator, Kitchen Confidential) is developing a new, not-yet-titled dramedy for ABC that focuses on the lives of young associates at a law firm. Hemingson worked at the Loeb & Loeb law firm in Los Angeles as a young graduate of Columbia Law School, though he says the pilot is not based on his experiences there, but rather on the young people he met working as a lawyer.

Well, Eliza Dushku has one of those development deals, but its with Fox, so odds are it will go the way of other Whedon alums who have had similar developmental deals like Minear and Fillion. Summer Glau has a shot with The Sarah Connor Chronicles, but my guess, sadly, is that whatever Dushku signs on to will ultimately get 'Foxed' (aka cancelled before we even see the number of episodes that were even shot).
