Action reality competition series, The Great Escape was given the go-ahead by TNT.  Fox Television Studios, Imagine Entertainment, The Hochberg Ebersol Company and Profiles Television Productions are behind TNT’s first-ever competition series that drops teams of ordinary people into the middle of their own epic action/adventure movie.  TNT has ordered 10 episodes and will premiere The Great Escape this summer.  Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Francie Calfo, Elise Doganieri, Bertram van Munster, Justin Hochberg and Charlie Eberson are all serving as executive producers.

New multi-camera buddy comedy series Men at Work was approved by TBS.  Set to launch this summer, Men at Work stars Danny Masterson, James Lesure, Michael Cassidy and Adam Busch as four buddies who work together at a magazine.  TBS ordered 10 episodes from Sony Pictures Television and Fanfare.  Breckin Meyer created the series and will serve as executive producer along with Fanfare’s Jamie Tarses and Julia Franz. 

44 Blue Productions made an exclusive agreement to develop a docu-series based on the online entertainment news site, Hollyscoop.  The series titled Hollyscoop Confidential will follow the three founders, Diana Madison, Ani Esmailian and Nora Gasparian, who are also childhood friends.  44 Blue’s Stephanie Drachkovitch will be the executive producer on the project. 

Musician/actor Harry Connick Jr. landed a four-episode run on NBC’s Law & Order: SVU beginning with the January 18 episode.  Connick will play a dedicated, by-the-book assistant D.A. named David Haden who becomes a love interest for Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay).

NBC’s Robert Greenblatt, Chairman/Entertainment confirmed Alec Baldwin renewed his contract with sitcom 30 Rock for this season and next.  The deal, according to Greenblatt was concluded last fall.
