Cynopsis


 

10/06/06

Good morning. It’s Friday, October 6, 2006, and this is your first early morning briefing.

The first fall freshman series to get a full season pickup – Heroes on NBC. The network has ordered the back nine, giving the full complement of 22 episodes.   While that’s going on, NBC‘s series Kidnapped has been banished to Saturdays, as of October 21. And yes, production will end after the initial 13 episodes are in the can.  Filling the Wednesday 10p time period?  Nothing official yet – but guesses go to Dateline NBC, Medium or Crossing Jordan.

Tonight’s Premieres:
MSG:    The Jammys Live 11p
Sci Fi:  Battlestar Galactica at 9p

* MORE GOOD STUFF *

Crown Media Holdings has sold the domestic rights to its library to RHI Enterprises for a cool $160 million.  The sale includes 600+ films, miniseries and series.  You may recall Crown Media purchased RHI Entertainment in 1994, retitled it the Hallmark Entertainment.  Then, bringing it around full circle, Robert Halmi Sr.’s bought back the production company and changed the name back to RHI Entertainment. Some of the major film and miniseries titles included in this deal are Moby Dick, Lonesome Dove, Merlin and Gulliver’s Travels.

MSG Network will debut the new original show The Jammys Live, tonight at 11p.

The show will take viewers into the lives of the gamers along with unique graphic illustrations and the drama of the competitions.
 
Starting tonight at 8p, TNT will premiere an original mini-drama (airing during commercial breaks), Change of Plans, which is essentially a marketing promotion for Chase’s new rewards credit card, Chase Freedom. The mini-drama focuses on a young, female executive and the choices she has to make. The first four parts will air tonight during the film Castaway, with the fifth and final segment shown only at TNT’s online destination, TNT.tv. Later, Chase will feature the full length Change of Plans as part of the company’s marketing campaign on other online sites. Change of Plans will also air in three encore presentations of Castaway on TNT.
 
Food Network’s latest series featuring chef Giada De Laurentiis has begun production. Giada’s Weekend Getaways will premiere January 12 at 930p and will combine her love of food with finding vacation destinations for food lovers. Each half-hour episode has Giada traveling to locations such as New York City, Cape Cod, San Francisco, Santa Fe and more and relating to the viewers how to maximize dollars and time to get the most out of a three-day weekend.

The Meredith Corp. will acquire the Berkeley-based ReadyMade magazine, a brand that is considered to be a younger version of Martha Stewart’s Living. The magazine is aimed at men and women in their 20s to 30s who enjoy DIY home projects. With the sale, the bi-monthly publication will see its circulation double to 200,000 and advertising will be sold out of Meredith’s New York offices. Terms of the final deal were not disclosed.

* BROADBAND & DIGITAL *

MTV’s newest reality comedy series Rob & Big will premiere November 2 at 1030p.

* PRODUCTION & DEVELOPMENT *

Twentieth Television has picked up another novela, La Calle de las Novias (Brides’ Avenue), for reversioning from TV Azteca for MyNetworkTV.  The storyline follows a young couple who must deal with the rivalry between their families per World Screen.  The U.S. company just acquired the rights to TV Azteca’s La Heredera last month.

For USA Network‘s pilot project Burn Notice, Jeffrey Donovan has been cast in the lead role about a blacklisted Special Ops agent who uses his special training to determine why he’s been blacklisted, says Hollywood Reporter.  This project comes from Fox TV Studios and Fuse Entertainment.

Also from HR, another project at USA Network, this one a comedy called To Love and Die in LA from Broadway Video TV and NBC Universal TV Studio, has signed Shiri Appleby to star as a woman who moves to LA to find the father she never knew.  When she does locate him, she also discovers his 9-5er is as an assassin – maybe this is just the job for her too!

Sci Fi Channel has ordered more episodes of Superhero.  The original order of the show which is scheduled to premiere its second season this summer, was for 6 episodes and that has now been upped to 10.  Nash Entertainment and Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment will produce the game/reality series looking for the next great superhero.  The winner of the game will be made into a comic book superhero.

Showtime has ordered 8 episodes of Meadowlands from UK’s Channel 4 and Ecosse Films.  Lest you think this is about a football team, think again.  Meadowlands is about a family moving to a lovely and picturesque new neighborhood, only to find in this little cul-de-sac nothing is as it seems. The series stars David Morrissey and Lucy Cohu.

CBS‘ new reality project The Singing Office where a merry band of producers surprise two sets of employees – real people in their real offices – get them to sing, and the best groups are flown to Hollywood where they are coached on their singing and dancing.  They then compete against each other and the viewers chose which is the best Singing Office.
