~ DISTRIBUTION, CLEARANCE & CARRIAGE ~

Independent television distributor, ALL3MEDIA International announced a slew of international broadcasters picked up the factual entertainment series Fake or Fortune investigating amazing stories from the art world produced by BBC.  The series, with four one-hour episodes, was picked up by Germany’s RTL; Australia’s ABC; Norway’s NRK; Canada’s TVO; New Zealand’s Sky New Zealand; Ananey Communications in Israel and Palestine; SVT in Sweden; and in Asia and India via BBC Knowledge after a pan territory agreement forged with BBC Worldwide.  Fake or Fortune also premieres this summer on BBC1. 

~ PRODUCTION & DEVELOPMENT ~

Casting changes are in store for FOX’s Glee series for the upcoming third season.  Chord Overstreet will not continue as a series regular though he could sporadically appear on the show during the third season.  The show is additionally advancing Darren Criss and Harry Shum Jr. to full-time cast members. 

NBC’s upcoming midseason comedy Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea, the semi-autobiographical series inspired by Chelsea Handler’s memoir, cut three cast members due to creative issues.  Those leaving the show are Natalie Morales, Angel Laketa Moore and Jo Koy.  Producers of the sitcom are retooling the characters the three actors played.  Laura Prepon is remaining on the show, playing the title lead. 

Richard T. Jones (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) cast in CBS’ Hawaii Five-O, cites TV Guide Magazine.  Jones will play the recurring role of the Lt. Governor who will keep a tighter rein on McGarrett and the Five-O team.
