Mark-Paul Gosselaar Lands Another Good-Guy Lawyer Gig

by Audrey Fine, posted Mar 8th 2010 12:15PM
Mark-Paul GosselaarAfter logging a couple of seasons as a lawyer on TNT's now defunct legal drama, 'Raising the Bar,' TV veteran and perennial hottie Mark-Paul Gosselaar is headed back to court -- this time, on TBS' hourlong comedy pilot, 'Franklin & Bash.'

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Jamie Tarses-produced pilot, which was penned by Kevin Falls ('The West Wing') and Bill Chais ('Dirty Sexy Money'), focuses on lifelong pals ('Robot Chicken's' Breckin Meyer is "Franklin" to Gosselaar's "Bash") who successfully take down a big time law firm only to end up being wooed by the firm's patriarch. No word yet on a premiere date.

TBS Picks Up 'In Security,' 'Franklin and Bash'

by Leonard Jacobs, posted Feb 10th 2010 12:15PM
Two more pilots have been picked up by TBS, bringing the number of new 60-minute comedies on the network's roster to four.

According the Hollywood Reporter, the two new pilot orders were for 'In Security' and 'Franklin and Bash.' The first concerns two sisters who run a private-security business for the high-and-mighty while trying to manage insecure family matters of their own. 'Franklin and Bash' pivots off the friendship of two gutsy, make-their-own-rules lawyers who beat a top-tier law firm on a case and are then invited to join the white-shoe firm.

Heading up the 'In Security' executive producing team are Ric Swartzlander ('Gary Unmarried'; 'Hidden Hills') and Peter Segal (the feature 'Get Smart') together with Starz CEO Chris Albrecht. Segal has been tapped to direct the pilot.

Gone Too Soon: Journeyman

Journeyman
I was trying to figure out what show to spotlight for the second "Gone Too Soon" column. As a general rule, I want to give a show a few years off the air before I delve into it. That gives the creators and producers a chance to try and continue the story, if they're interested in doing so, and it gives the actors a chance to move on. Then I read the news that they're going to adapt The Time Traveler's Wife to television, and it hit me.

A man disappearing from his wife to travel through time, and struggling to fix his home life as he went along? That sounded awfully familiar, and to a lot of you, as well, if your comments are any indication. So even though Journeyman's finale aired less than two years ago, it's time we honored it for the great show it was ... a show, unfortunately, about two years ahead of its time.

Falls spills on plans for Journeyman

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 9th 2008 3:34PM
JourneymanI wish I could tell you that those plans included a television mini-series or at least a small screen film, but alas series creator Kevin Falls has moved on. In fact, his new series featuring a womanizer trapped in a woman's body, is currently coming together for FOX, so at least he's sticking with the "different." He did, however, take some time out to chat it up with AICN about the bigger plans for Journeyman.

This was a show that was hugely under-appreciated by the mainstream, and almost dismissed out of the gate as a Quantum Leap derivative by many of the sci-fi crowd. The show was so much more. There was such a heart of tragedy at the core of protagonist Dan Vasser's abrupt rips through time. Unlike QL's Sam Beckett, Vasser is literally torn from his life no matter what he is doing, body and spirit, and hurtled through the timestream. Then add all that we learned about his first love Livia and there's just so much pain in the show, which makes for great dramatic television.

Journeyman's 12th episode will air after all

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Nov 29th 2007 12:41PM
JourneymanAin't It Cool News reveals that Journeyman's 12th episode (that is if you count the pilot as 1.00 and not 1.01) will air after all. If you've been following the show's behind-the-scenes drama, you know that there are talks of cancellation due to so-so ratings, and that this twelfth episode could very well be the series' final episode (13 episodes were ordered at first; NBC later ordered three more scripts but, because of the strike, episode 12 (episode 13 for us fans) was the last one completed).

Journeyman will probably end in December or January

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 26th 2007 11:24AM

JourneymanThis news is sure to upset fans of the NBC show Journeyman: the show will probably end with the 12th episode.

And just so you know this isn't a guess, this word comes straight from Kevin Falls, creator of the show. He says that because of the show's so-so ratings, and the fact that it doesn't look like the writers strike is going to end anytime soon, that episode will probably be the last one for the series. If it's any consolation for fans, Falls says that the episode does work as sort of a series finale and does answer a lot of questions. Though I would guess that those answers won't be enough for hardcore fans. It also leaves an opening for a second sesaon if that were to occur.

The 12th episode will air either at the end of December or early January.

Food, fun and football: more from NBC - TCA report

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 18th 2007 2:01PM
Adam Baldwin and Alec Baldwin NBC's new lineup continued on day two of its press presentation with Chuck, a one-hour drama by Josh Schwartz and McG, the creative team that brought viewers The O.C. The new series stars Zachary Levi, best known for his four years on Less Than Perfect.

If we're supposed to like Chuck, Levi's well cast in the role. He has a self-effacing way about him, especially when asked if he's bulked up over the last few years. He jokes he's eaten a lot of pizza and doesn't work out as much as he should.

Co-star Adam Baldwin is asked a question pretty much everyone knows the answer to. No, he's not related to the famous acting Baldwin brothers of Long Island. Baldwin jokes he hopes to meet Alec Baldwin (30 Rock) now that they're both on NBC so they can settle this in person.

Journeyman director signs development deal - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted May 14th 2007 2:01PM

20th century fox tvAfter NBC picked up the drama series Journeyman, its director, Alex Graves (The Nine, The West Wing), has inked a deal with 20th Century Fox Television that will allow him to develop another series while still serving as an executive producer on Journeyman. If the new series is picked up, he'll step away from his duties on Journeyman. If it isn't picked up, he'll stick with the show.

Journeyman, about a man (Kevin McKidd) who travels back and forth through time, was picked up for a thirteen-episode order. It was created by Kevin Falls (North Shore, The West Wing). McKidd's character, Dan, is joined by actress Moon Bloodgood as Livia, his dead fiance who is also traveling through time. Yeah, I don't quite get it either, it sounds like an odd combination of Quantum Leap and Slaughter-House Five. I was kind of hoping it was about the Eric Clapton album.

UPDATE: Preview vid from NBC after the jump.

New time travel drama picked up by NBC

by Anna Johns, posted Aug 21st 2006 9:09AM
quantum leapAs I write this, I can't help but think this story is a joke. How could it be real? Apparently NBC has ordered the pilot for a science fiction show about a man who travels through time to right wrongs. Does that sound like Quantum Leap to you, too? There must be more to it because, while it was on the air for five seasons, I just am not seeing a big calling for bringing back Leap. Seaquest DSV, yes. But Quantum Leap? Nah.

The series is the brainchild of Kevin Falls, who has a pretty impressive writing resume including West Wing, Sports Night, North Shore, Arli$$ and The Lyon's Den.
