NBC seems to be getting into the horror genre by approving a script order for Frankenstein.  The project is a contemporary take on the legend of Frankenstein which originated in the 1818 novel by Mary Shelley.  Executive producers Russel Friend and Garrett Lerner of FOX’s House are writing Frankenstein for Universal Media Studios and BermanBraun.  Universal Studios holds the intellectual property rights to Frankenstein in addition to other classic horror characters as Dracula, the Wolfman and the Mummy.

ABC has a couple of new series projects in the pipeline:

  • The popular Lionsgate movie The Lincoln Lawyer based on the novel by Michael Connelly will also be adapted for the small screen written by John Romano and Connelly. Gary Luchessi of Lakeshore Entertainment is on board to produce through Lionsgate. 

New unscripted series America’s Supernanny will have a home on Lifetime when the eight-episode one-hour series debuts later this year.  The network approved the new series based on the global format from Shed Media US featuring an American nanny who will rehabilitate kids and coach parents.  Lifetime and Shed Media also announced an open casting call in search of the country’s best nanny to star in the series.  The candidate must have a tough though loving philosophy about caring for children; be able to determine the roots of family problems; have the experience to coach parents and kids; hold a proof of US residence and be able to travel.  Prospective nannies can submit their information to be considered at: .  Families with out of control kids can also be considered for the series by calling 877-NANNY-TIME (877-626-6984) or sending an email to: for more information.

The Top Chef franchise is produced by Magical Elves.

Production has started on a new reality series for TLC titled Candy Queen (wt) set to roll out this winter.  TLC ordered six half-hour episodes from Half Yard Productions featuring Jackie Sorkin who operates a candy and events company based in Los Angeles called The Hollywood Candy Girls. 

Former Scrubs star Sarah Chalke made a development/talent holding agreement with 20TH Century Fox Television.  The deal has the studio developing a comedy project starring Chalke slated for next fall.  If a new project does not get developed then the studio has in mind to cast Chalke in a project already in the works.
