Mystery Woman

Jane Seymour, TV detective

Jane SeymourShe's been a vamp, a vixen, a medicine woman, royalty and she's even tried Dancing with the Stars. Now she will solve crimes. The Hallmark Channel has greenlit Dear Prudence, a Jane Seymour crime-solving Martha Stewart-type celebrity. They're calling this a backdoor pilot because Hallmark doesn't do series TV; however, if the movie were to be successful, it could become one of a rotation of star-driven mystery movies that Hallmark currently presents.

  • Paula DeenAt 8, PBS has a new NOW, then a new Washington Week.
  • NBC has a new Identity at 8, followed by the Miss USA 2007 beauty pageant. Tara Conner's time is up already?

  • There's a new What Not To Wear on TLC at 9.
  • FOX has a new episode of The Wedding Bells at 9.
  • Also at 9: Hallmark has a new Mystery Woman flick, In The Shadows.
  • At 10, Food Network has a new Paula's Party, focusing on "Fair Food," which I would assume means where the food comes from and not the quality itself.

Rebecca Romijn joins cast of Ugly Betty

Rebecca RomijnIt's official and, perhaps, a bit ironic. The show with the hottest cast on television is Ugly Betty. Gentlemen, there will be no need to despair when Salma Hayek's character arc has come and gone. Rebecca Romijn will be holding the va-va-va-voom quotient steady at the Mode offices.

Romijn has been cast to play the "mystery woman" that Wilhelmina has been conspiring with to take over the magazine. We have no reason to think that this "mystery woman" is anyone other than Mode's back-from-the-dead editor Fey, but it's a soap opera. If the show's own press releases insist on referring to her only as the "mystery woman," than we'll humor them. We've already seen the character Romijn will be playing on the show, but she's been covered in surgical gauze and shot in silhouette. A different actress has been providing the character's voice. My assumption has always been that Wilhelmina's conspirator was much older than Romijn, which just goes to show the wonders of reconstructive surgery.
