'American Idol' Alum to Guest Star on 'CSI: NY'

23 September 2008 2:00 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

It definitely seems that the fine line between reality TV and scripted television is quickly disappearing as several reality celebrities have dipped their toes into the pool of primetime series.  While Paris Hilton and Lauren Conrad opt to appear as themselves, some take on the challenge of actually playing a role and becoming an actor for a day.  Chris Daughtry, season 5 finalist of American Idol, is no exception. In fact, the 28-year-old rocker from North Carolina will be appearing in the upcoming season of CSI: NY, specifically its 100th episode.

People further reports that Daughtry will play a character named Machiavelli Taylor.  Other guest stars this season include rapper Nelly, actor Scott Wolf, former NFL star Marshall Faulk, actress Julie Ormond and Rumer Willis, daughter of action star Bruce Willis and Demi Moore.

Meanwhile, Rumer Willis, who recently guest starred on Army Wives, will be playing a role who shares »

Updates on the Release of 'Moonlight' Season 1 DVD

18 September 2008 2:00 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Back in June, when the fate of the CBS series Moonlight was yet undetermined, we reported that the first season DVD of said show will be released some time in September.  Now that the month is coming to a close, fans have started to become anxious about the DVD release.  While they want to get their hands on the DVD to calm the frustration caused by the non-renewal of the show that brought us Alex O'Loughlin as the sexy vamp detective Mick St. John, no definite reports have surfaced.

In August, though, we brought you good news with CBS announcing that while they have officially turned off Moonlight, they will be keeping the 32-year-old Australian actor to pursue other series projects with the network.  In fact, CBS and O’Loughlin went ahead to sign a year-long contract for the actor to work on a project developed by Mark Gordon, who »

Maria Grasso leaving Lifetime to join Own

10 September 2008 7:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Maria Grasso is expected to exit Lifetime to join rival cable upstart Own: The Oprah Winfrey Network, the joint venture between Discovery Communications and Winfrey's Harpo Prods.

Details about Grasso's post at Own are still sketchy, but she would assume a top development role at Own under president Robin Schwartz. Grasso is the second key executive hire for Schwartz after the appointment of Nina Wass as senior vp creative affairs last month.

As of Thursday, Grasso was still working at Lifetime, visiting the set of the network's pilot "Drop Dead Diva" in Atlanta.

Grasso's pending departure would follow the exit of Lifetime entertainment president Susanne Daniels in June.

Grasso had worked under Daniels at the WB Network, where Daniels was president of entertainment and Grasso was senior vp drama development. Daniels brought her to Lifetime shortly after she took the reins of the network in September 2005.

Summer of cable love

20 August 2008 3:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

It's been another good summer for cable.

Summer 2008 may not have generated as many ratings headlines for cable as last year, when Disney Channel's "High School Musical 2" blew away viewership records and there was a higher number of original scripted series bows.

But the ad-supported cable networks still are hitting record viewership deliveries this summer. According to Turner Research data released Tuesday, the sector collectively is averaging 6 million more primetime viewers than 2004, the most recent year that included a presidential election and a Summer Olympics.

That group, which includes most basic cable networks with exceptions like Disney Channel, is averaging 51 million total viewers in primetime from May 26-Aug. 17, continuing an annual trend of growing summertime viewership. That figure represents a 13% increase over 2004 but less than a 1% increase over 2007.

Turner chief research officer Jack Wakshlag said summer TV viewing overall is on the rise for a few reasons, including a »

CBS Adopts 'Moonlight' Actor, Cast Members Pursue Other Projects

19 August 2008 2:00 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

While some have already packed their bags and tidied up their camp sites following the campaign to bring Moonlight back to CBS, quite a number of fans are still clamoring for the return of the much-loved series which starred Alex O’Loughlin and Sophia Miles.  The series, which only survived a season with a little under an average of 7.5 million viewers, was cut by CBS earlier this year because the network claimed that the ratings weren’t sufficient enough for a renewal.  Moreover, CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler admitted that unlike Jericho, the resurrected series with a passionate fanbase, Moonlight’s fans tend to support the actor behind it rather than the series itself.

"The response to Moonlight was actually more actor-centric, so I think it certainly measures our decision on the show," Tassler told reporters at the TCA last month.

Apparently CBS saw the potential in the Australian actor »

Alex O'Loughlin staying at CBS

14 August 2008 7:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

"Moonlight" star Alex O'Loughlin is staying at CBS.

The Australian actor has signed a talent holding deal with the network, sister studio CBS Paramount TV and ABC Studios.

Under the one-year pact, O'Loughlin will star in a new series project for CBS that will be developed by top TV producer Mark Gordon, whose ABC Studio-based company is behind such series as ABC's "Grey's Anatomy," Lifetime's "Army Wives" and CBS' "Criminal Minds."

O'Loughlin rose to prominence this past season as vampire Pi Mick St. John on CBS' "Moonlight." He helped attract a passionate fan base to the ill-fated freshman drama, which was canceled in May. At the Television Critics Assn. press tour in July, CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler credited the show's intense fan appeal to the actor.

Under the new deal with CBS, he also will be able to pitch theatrical projects to CBS Films.

O'Loughlin, who next appears in the feature "Whiteout," is repped by Icm and June Cann Management. »

'Two' For The Money

4 August 2008 11:32 PM, PDT | NYPost.com | See recent New York Post news »

Gone are those heady days of TV stars like Jerry Seinfeld, Tim Allen and NBC's "Friends" earning $1 million per episode.

But, let's face it - it's not exactly hard times out there in series-land, either.

Take "Two and a Half Men" star Charlie Sheen, who tops TV Guide's annual list of the tube's top-paid stars - and he's only raking in $825,000 per episode (or $18 million for a 22-episode season, including his ownership stake in the hit sitcom).

Sheen is followed on the list by soon-to-leave "CSI »

Morgan Wandell watches Berlanti TV

30 July 2008 7:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

ABC Studios senior vp drama Morgan Wandell has departed his post to run Greg Berlanti's studio-based production company.

Wandell's No. 2, vp Channing Dungey, has been upped to senior vp and will take over the drama department.

Wandell inked a multiyear deal with Berlanti Television to oversee its scripted, reality and Internet programming under the eight-figure new deal Berlanti recently inked with the studio.

Berlanti TV's programming executive Melissa Berman is staying on and continues as co-producer of "Dirty Sexy Money" and "Eli Stone," two of Berlanti TV's three ABC/ABC Studios series on the air, along with "Brothers & Sisters."

Wandell oversaw the development of all three at the studio, working with Berlanti.

"It is going to be a joy to go from building great series to building a great company together," Berlanti said.

Under Wandell, ABC Studios' drama portfolio expanded rapidly to 17 series on six networks and in first-run syndication. After a brief stint at the studio in the late '90s, Wandell returned as head of drama in 2004, following a four-year tenure as resident of programming at teen TV news network Channel One.

A four-year veteran of the ABC Studios drama team, Dungey has supervised such series as "Grey's Anatomy," "Criminal Minds," "Reaper," "Army Wives" and "Private Practice" and has worked closely with such studio-based producers as Mark Gordon, Shonda Rhimes, David Hoberman and Matt Gross.

"Channing understands how to encourage and nurture creative voices and visions," ABC Studios president Mark Pedowitz said. »

Lifetime picks up 'Army Wives' for third season

11 July 2008 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Lifetime has picked up "Army Wives" for a third season with an 18-episode order.

The announcement, made Friday during the TV Critics Assn.'s summer press tour at the Beverly Hilton, comes only five weeks into the drama's second season, which also consists of 18 episodes. Season 3 is set to bow next year.

"Wives," from ABC Studios and the Mark Gordon Co., has set records for Lifetime since its premiere last summer. This season, the series ranks as ad-supported basic cable's No. 1 drama among Lifetime's key demos of women 18-49 and women 25-54.

Lifetime president and CEO Andrea Wong called the series a "game-changer" for the network.

"Announcing this early renewal is a testament to the enormous faith and confidence we have in this show and its incredibly talented cast and production team," Wong said.

"Wives," which airs at 10 p.m. Sundays, revolves around a group of women -- and one man -- living with their spouses and families on an active Army post. The cast includes Kim Delaney, Catherine Bell and Sally Pressman.

Said ABC Studios president Mark Pedowitz: "The show's strong cast and story lines, relevant to current culture, resonate with viewers. We expect the momentum to continue."

"Wives" is executive produced by Gordon, Deborah Spera, Nick Thiel and creator Katherine Fugate. The series is based on the book "Under the Sabers: The Unwritten Code of Military Marriage" by Tanya Biank, who serves as a consultant.

During Lifetime's Tca session, senior vp reality programming Jessica Samet also gave a brief overview of some unscripted projects in the works at the network, including a Carson Kressley-hosted talk show; the culinary-themed "Cook Yourself Thin" and "Mom's Cooking"; a project starring Sean Combs' ex Kim Porter, mother to three of his children; "The Week the Women Went," a competition featuring fathers; and "Love & Salsa," a dance-themed project starring Mario Lopez. »
