'Glee' Adds Writer, Schwarzenegger's 'Governator' On Hold & More TV News

by Chris Harnick, posted May 20th 2011 11:00AM
Glee'Glee,' a show often criticized for its uneven writing, is adding a fourth writer.

Yes, up until now, only three people -- Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan -- were writing 'Glee.' So, who is this new guy we can pin all of our hopes and dreams to? None other than comic book scribe and playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

That name sound familiar? That's because Aguirre-Sacasa is the man behind the 'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark' rewrites. He's penned several episodes of 'Big Love' and wrote critically-acclaimed comics such as 'Marvel Knights: 4' and various 'Spider-Man' comics.

According to Deadline, Aguirre-Sacasa will also become a co-producer on 'Glee.' He's also been tapped to write a remake of 'Carrie' for the big screen.

Doctor Horrible, the aftermath

Neil Patrick Harris - Dr. Horrible
If you are like me, you stayed up late Friday night just to catch Act 3 of Doctor Horrible, even though you needed to be up at 5AM to watch F1 in Germany. Chances are that there are more of you that stayed up late and couldn't give two shakes about a car race at Hockenheim, but either way, we've come to the end of Joss Whedon's great experiment. It seemed like a good idea to get a post up and see what everybody thought. A lot of it was what I expected based simply on the players involved. It stood to reason that there would be some good yucks, a bit of a twist, and since this is Joss Whedon, even...

No 24 until... January 2009! - VIDEO

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Feb 13th 2008 8:00AM
24Now that the writers' strike is over, watercooler talks shifted from "when will the strike be over" to "what shows will come back, when, and for how many episodes." One show that fans were extremely looking forward to (mostly after seeing the video after the jump) was 24. The series, first set to return in January 2008, was shelved by FOX so that season 7 could air uninterrupted.

When FOX made that announcement, some of us predicted that the show wouldn't return until at least mid-August. Since the network is known for starting it's fall season a bit early for certain shows (e.g., Prison Break), maybe the series could have aired from mid-August until the end of December with a few 2-hour long episodes. But it looks like this option won't happen. Instead, we will have to wait 11 months to see what happens next in Jack Bauer's life!

24 producer responds to criticism

by Meredith O'Brien, posted May 3rd 2007 2:41PM

Jack Bauer on 24Responding to criticism in a recent Los Angeles Times piece that this season's 24 is lackluster and that viewers are tuning out, a co-executive producer of the show said failing to chart out story lines and sending several characters to sleep with the fishes are largely to blame for this predicament.

"You try to keep things interesting, find new ways to tell the story, and unfortunately we wound up repeating ourselves somewhat," David Fury, co-executive producer told TV Week. "I still would claim that regardless of the quality drop-off that people are saying, the show's still very strong. It's still one of the best things on television."

Buffy comics writer joins Lost staff

by Brett Love, posted Dec 21st 2006 2:02PM
Brian K VaughanBrian K. Vaughan, creator of Runaways and writer for the Buffy comics, announced on his website that he has joined Lost as an Executive Story Editor. According to Vaughan, he is neither an executive or an editor, and the title is Hollywood speak for joining the writing staff.

As for what that means for the show... I'm leaning toward not much. Not that Brian K. Vaughan isn't a talented guy, he clearly is, but I don't have much confidence that he will really be allowed to do all he can. Lost has always had talented writers. Although, they have had some trouble hanging on to them. David Fury hopped a boat off the island and went to hang out with Jack Bauer. Javier Grillo-Marxuach later followed suit and made his way to Medium.
