The Tim Allen series, now called 'Last Man Standing' comes from '30 Rock' writer Jack Burditt. The official tagline: "Even though the world around him has declared the traditional male an 'endangered species,' Tim Fitzgerald is fighting for his manhood in a world that is being increasingly dominated by women."
'Apt. 23' (formerly 'Don't Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23') tells the story of a young woman who moves to the big city and ends up with a hard-partying roommate. Dreama Walker and Krysten Ritter star.
Minka Kelly, Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh star in the 'Charlie's Angels' reboot.
We've had tribute lists and graphics, but we wanted to go out with a bang: a mashup! What better way to salute some of the most iconic and powerful woman in television history than with a video of them in action?
Below you'll find one awesome video -- if we do say so ourselves -- of fierce females in action. There's plenty of canceled Joss Whedon goodness and soapy slaps to satisfy everybody.
Rachael Taylor, Minka Kelly and Annie Ilonzeh have stepped into the crime-fighting roles made iconic in the original series, which aired from 1976-81.
The new show, which is set in the present day, will feature the girls as reformed criminals who are brought together by Charlie to redeem themselves, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Former big-screen 'Angel' Drew Barrymore serves as executive producer for the show, which is one of the most buzzed about pilots for the upcoming 2011-12 season.
And as for Charlie? Robert Wagner will play the voice made famous by the late John Forsythe, as the show plans on keeping Charlie out of sight like the original.
'Battle Los Angeles' star Ramón Rodríguez is set to fill the role of Bosley, and dished to E! Online about his new gig.
The last piece of major 'Charlie's Angels' casting has fallen into place with the news that 'The Wire' alum, Ramón Rodríguez, has been cast as Bosley.
According to TVLine.com, Rodríguez's verison of Bosley will be "a charming and funny guy with 'GQ' looks and Peter Pan smile who has great hacking skills and technical knowledge." So, just like David Doyle's character in the original, then?
Rodriguez joins previously cast Minka Kelly ('Friday Night Lights'), Rachael Taylor ('Transformers') and Annie Ilonzeh ('General Hospital') in the new series.
And, if reports are true, he'll be taking orders from Robert Wagner, who's said to be in talks to play the eponymous Charlie.
Last week we reported that original 'Dallas' stars Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray had signed on for the update, and now we hear that producers are close to casting the pivotal role of Bobby and Pam Ewing's son, Christopher.
According to TVLine.com it's a two-horse race between Jesse Metcalfe and newcomer Alex Russell.
Producers say that the new 'Dallas' will focus on the next generation of the Ewing dynasty as they squabble over power, money and women. Josh Henderson has already signed on to play Christopher's cousin John Ross, with whom he and Jordana Brewster's character, Elena, become entangled in a love triangle.
According to Deadline, producers are in talks to sign a syndication deal with Tribune Broadcasting. After Showtime, DirecTV and Starz all passed on the eight-part series, which was canceled by the History Channel after concerns over historical accuracy, several basic cable networks reportedly showed interest in airing the film as well. However, Deadline reports that the producers would rather sell 'The Kennedys' to syndication.
