ABC Strikes New Deals with Netflix, Amazon

by Chris Harnick, posted Oct 31st 2011 11:30AM
ABCNetflix seems to be combating its bad press by striking up partnership deals with TV networks. Hot on the heels of its deals with The CW and AMC, Netflix and Disney-ABC Television Group have reached a new agreement, extending their existing licensing agreement.

As part of the new deal, episodes of new seasons from Disney-ABC shows will be available on Netflix 30 days after the last episode of each season airs.

'Alias,'
'Switched at Birth' and 'Kick Buttowski' will now be available on Netflix. The new deal extends to the previous seasons of 'Lost,' 'Brothers & Sisters,' 'Ugly' Betty,' 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Private Practice' and 'Desperate Housewives' that are currently on the streaming service. 'Army Wives,' 'Melissa & Joey,' 'Make It or Break It' and various Disney Channel shows will also remain available.

TV Goes to College: 10 Memorable Shows Set on Campus

by Jane Murphy, posted Nov 16th 2010 4:50PM
'Conan' isn't TBS' only big premiere this month. Tonight at 10PM ET, you can tune into the first episode of 'Glory Daze', a one-hour comedy set among the crushed beer cans and hand-me-down sofas of a fraternity house ... in 1986. (Read Maureeen Ryan's review of 'Glory Daze.')

The cast is full of fresh faces; the most famous name among the regulars is former 'Saturday Night Live' player Tim Meadows, as the awkward Professor Haines.

But can 'Glory Daze' succeed where other college comedies and dramas -- many others -- have failed? Though series set in leafy quads would seem to be limiting themselves to a four-year run, it could take the Hayes University screw-ups of 'Glory Daze' a decade to graduate.

Let's review some of TV's most memorable attempts to bring higher ed to the small screen. You'll be tested on this later.

Keri Russell in Talks for a Return to Primetime

by Kim Potts, posted Mar 10th 2010 10:00AM
It's only the best thing that could happen to a 'Felicity' fan, next to that reunion we've been dreaming of since 2002: Keri Russell is in talks to make a full-time return to primetime in the Fox comedy pilot 'Wilde Kingdom.'

Adding to the fun: The series would pair Russell with 'Arrested Development' funnyman Will Arnett, who plays Steve Wilde, a wealthy Beverly Hills jerk who falls for a kind-hearted, environmentally-minded woman (Russell). She, of course, thinks he's a giant tool and wants nothing to do with him or his playboy ways.

J.J. Abrams Invented the iPad

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 26th 2010 2:36PM
You think 'Mad TV' was the first to use the name iPad? Actually, the name was used in a 1999 episode of 'Felicity.' Her friend is trying to decide which computer to buy and rattles off a list of products that are available at the store...hmmmmm.

Obviously she mixes up "Thinkpads" and "iBooks." Either that or J.J. Abrams has powers we mortals can't understand.

New TV on DVD releases this week

AliasHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Hmmm...no idea why there's a new edition of Alias' season 5 coming out tomorrow. There was another version of the season already released, but it has been discontinued. I wonder if there's something different in the set that will tick off fans who bought that deluxe Alias Complete Series Set with Rambaldi Artifact a while back.

And the fourth season of Felicity too. Maybe it's J.J. Abrams' birthday?

  • Alias - Season 5 (new edition)
  • Ben 10: Alien Force - Season 1, Vol. 3
  • Beverly Hills, 90210 - Season 7

Always picked last in gym class? That's OK. You don't need to be a jock to ace this game.

You do, however, need some serious TV skills to answer which position Tim Riggins plays, which sport was popular on Caprica or which Simpsons' sibling acted as goalie.

Desperate Housewife gets trimmed ... her hair, that is

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 16th 2008 12:26PM
Eva's haircutHaircuts on TV shows are often a very big deal. Remember when Keri Russell had the audacity to cut her long, curl mane on Felicity? Some fans never forgave her or the character!

Well, be prepared for another cut to your psyche, Desperate Housewives' devotees. Eva Longoria Parker has cut her hair for the upcoming sixth season of the show. Unlike Keri, however, Eva's cut was done with the blessing of the producers.

As you can see, it's a very cute 'doo; not too blunt or pixie-ish. It's quite stylish and flattering. The idea is that with the five-year time jump that we saw in the finale last season, Gaby doesn't have the time or inclination to care for her long, flowing locks. (If you've ever had long, full hair like hers, you know what I'm talking about!)

Six other politicians who have had their ways paved by TV actors

by Jay Black, posted Jul 2nd 2008 11:38AM
Hey, you want to get together tomorrow afternoon and pose dramatically?Dennis Haysbert recently claimed that his role as President Palmer on 24 may have helped pave the way for a viable African American presidential candidate. He went on to claim that his portrayal of Nelson Mandela in the movie Goodbye Bafana ended apartheid and that his role as Jonas Blane in The Unit cured polio. Haysbert was then wrestled to the ground by his handlers and is now "recuperating" at the Clay Aiken Home for Delusional Celebrities.

My first thought upon hearing this news was that Dennis Haysbert is obviously insane. Since I've been criticized in this space for not having an open mind about insane things, I decided to take Mr. Haysbert at his word. I then went even further and went to work putting together a list of other politicians who exist mainly due to the hard work done for them by TV actors. After researching Wikipedia for almost a full fifteen minutes, this is the list I've managed to put together...

Stars of Flashpoint talk about Toronto taking center stage

by Jane Boursaw, posted Jun 30th 2008 11:02AM
Flashpoint Conference CallFlashpoint premieres Friday, July 11, at 10 p.m. ET on CBS, and yes, it's another cop show, but it sounds gritty enough to offer something interesting. The new summer drama stars Enrico Colantoni as Sergeant Greg Parker, Hugh Dillon as Ed Lane, David Paetkau as Sam Braddock, and Amy Jo Johnson as Jules Callahan.

The series follows the lives of a Toronto-based Strategic Response Unit (SRU), unique cops who go beyond the call of ordinary cops to rescue hostages, bust gangs, defuse bombs, handle state-of-the-art weaponry and, of course, risk their lives to save others.

I participated in a conference call this week with Colantoni, Dillon, Johnson, and executive producers Bill Mustos and Anne Marie La Traverse. Some highlights of the call:

CBS orders pilots with Amy Smart and Fred Savage

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 24th 2008 9:41AM
Smart/SavageIt'll be one more time around for a Wonder Years alumna and a Felicity fave. Fred Savage and Amy Smart have both been cast in CBS pilots. For Fred, who for me may have peaked as an actor as Kevin Arnold (although I did love him in Austin Powers in Goldmember playing Number Three -- the guy with the mole on his face), the new project on tap is Single White Millionaire. The sitcom is from the pen of writer Ricky Blitt, one of the Family Guy scribes, so that's a plus. The plot is described as the story of an unassuming, thirtysomething millionaire ready to settle down -- and obviously looking for the right lady to share his life (although I guess he could be looking for a significant other of either gender -- the project line leaves it open).

WB coming back on the web

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 10th 2008 3:24PM
Gilmore Girls - dinerThe coffee at Luke's Diner is perking again. Well, sort of. The WB television network is being resurrected it as a new web site. The WB, tentatively called wb.com, will offer free streaming episodes of Gilmore Girls, Everwood and What I Like About You, to start.

Those are all shows that were WB-produced during 1995-2006, before the WB merged with UPN to become the CW. It has yet to be determined if other series, including Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, Felicity and Dawson's Creek are slated for the wb.com stream. Like other online streaming venues that allow people to watch for free, the shows will be paid for by ads. In addition to the shows, the site is also going to create new, short (approximately five minute) vignettes targeting the old WB audience, primarily women 12-34.
