More 'Myths' for TV Land?

14 January 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

TV Land is exploring the truth behind more Myths & Legends.

The network has greenlighted a second season of its original series, which aims to find out the truth behind mysteries, scandals, rumors and urban legends revolving around celebrities, music, TV series and movies. TV Land has ordered seven half-hour episodes, the first of which will premiere at 10 p.m. Aug. 27.

Among the topics the second season will explore are whether Arnold Schwarzenegger was originally cast as TV's Incredible Hulk and if Jennifer Lopez's derriere is really insured for $1 billion.

Other investigations include whether Mars Inc., maker of M&M's, turned down product placement in E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, allowing Reese's Pieces to step in and benefit immensely.

Myths debuted in January 2007, averaging 819,000 viewers over its six-week run, which marked a 54% improvement over the same period a year earlier, according to Nielsen Media Research. The network also aired a special installment in August centered entirely on Elvis Presley. »
