But with the exception of overwrought telenovelas, Colombian sitcom superstar Sofía Vergara and Desperate Housewives Eva Longoria they hardly figure at all on American television.

ABC Plans "Phantom of the Opera" TV Series

23 October 2014 8:48 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Desperate Housewives" creator Marc Cherry is developing a contemporary TV series take on "The Phantom of the Opera" for ABC Studios.

Despite being dubbed a drama with musical elements, it is Not using Andrew Lloyd Webber's classic musical of the same name as the basis. Rather, the producers are going back to Gaston Leroux's original 1909 novel which itself has more often been the basis for TV and film adaptations of the story.

This take on the story involves a ghost who haunts an opera house and helps a budding singer before jealousy gets the better of him. Much like the network's "Nashville," this will also involve the cutthroat world of the music business and will incorporate musical moments into story lines.

Cherry, Sabrina Wind, Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner are executive producing with the latter two penning the script.

Modern Day Phantom of the Opera Series In the Works at ABC From Desperate Housewives’ Marc Cherry

23 October 2014 3:27 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

And just when I think I’m out, they pull me back. There is now yet another TV adaption of a famous film/book/musical in the works at ABC. The network has reportedly ordered a pilot script for The Phantom of the Opera from executive producer Marc Cherry, who created the hit ABC series Desperate Housewives. The potential Phantom of the Opera series will be a modern reinterpretation of the Gaston Leroux gothic novel of the same name and will reportedly take place “in the sexy and cutthroat world of the modern-day music business.” However, ABC stresses that, if made into a series, Cherry’s Phantom of the Opera would not be a musical but a drama series with musical elements, similar to the network’s current country music drama Nashivlle, where characters perform music but do not spontaneously burst out into song, like they do on Fox’s Glee. »

There Might Be an Archie Comics TV Show Called Riverdale

23 October 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Archie Andrews is dead (sort of) in his long-running comic, but he may yet get one more chance to live, thanks to Fox. The network is developing a TV show called Riverdale that will follow the red-headed teen and his gang of squeaky-clean friends. Actually, take out the "squeaky-clean" part — Deadline says the project will be a "bold, subversive" drama that explores the "the darkness and weirdness" underpinning the Archie universe. That could mean anything from Desperate Housewives to Blue Velvet! The show will be produced by Everwood's Greg Berlanti. This is Berlanti's second attempt at bringing Archie comics to television (the first was Dawson's Creek). »

The classic romance/horror story The Phantom of the Opera might be finding its way to television thanks to Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry.  According to Variety, ABC is developing a "drama with musical elements" and would be set in the modern-day music business.  However, the series is not an adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's famous musical, but rather the musical's source material, the original 1909 novel by Gaston Leroux.  For those who don't know, it's about a musician who is scarred by acid, goes into hiding beneath an opera house, and then tries to lure a beautiful singer to his lair. This modern-day update "is billed as revolving around the cutthroat world of the music biz and will incorporate musical moments into story lines in the same vein as the ABC drama Nashville."  It's an intriguing take on the material, and Cherry showed with Desperate Housewives he has the »

‘Phantom of the Opera’ Drama From Marc Cherry Headed to ABC

23 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC is developing a contemporary take on “The Phantom of the Opera” shepherded by “Desperate Housewives” creator Marc Cherry.

The ABC Studios project is described as a drama with musical elements — it will be set in the modern-day music biz — but it is not a rendition of the Andrew Lloyd Webber tuner that has been a legit B.O. dynamo worldwide for nearly 30 years.

Cherry and his team are tapping the original 1909 novel by Gaston Leroux, which has been adapted many times by Hollywood, most famously in the 1925 Lon Chaney starrer. Plot involves a ghost who haunts an opera house and helps a budding singer before jealousy  gets the better of him.

The ABC rendition is billed as revolving around the cutthroat world of the music biz and will incorporate musical moments into story lines in the same vein as the ABC drama “Nashville.”

17 October 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Who says TV programmers have run out of ideas?

Why, just in the last week, the trade papers have announced deals and casting for as many as 15 new reboots spinoff series and specials. Some sound like familiar shows, others like mutant Frankenstein hybrids of familiar shows. We'll leave it to you to decide which of these programs sound like must-see-tv and which sound like much-skip-tv.

"Care Bears and Cousins." Fuzzy is the new black at Netflix, which is reviving the candy-colored kiddie cartoon series but adding some new characters. No, Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright are not going to have a threesome with one of them.
