News Roundup: One Tree Hill, 90210, Gossip Girl and More

14 05 2010
  • Media Life has an interesting article on state of The CW, its success in the past year (including why Gossip Girl and 90210 are considered successful when their total live audience numbers suggest otherwise) and how it might approach the 2010-2011 season. The article also says there is speculation both One Tree Hill and Life Unexpected will return, which is the same speculation we heard yesterday. And let me put emphasis on the word “speculation.”
  • Kristin also reports that OTH and LUX could get a 12 or 13 episode order but cautions “no final decisions have been made.”
  • Gossip Cop and I busted a Hollywood Life story claiming Torrey DeVitto (Carrie, One Tree Hill) and Paul Wesley (Donnie, The O.C.) “got secretly married.” They haven’t.
  • Generation Y, featuring Daniella Alonso (Anna, One Tree Hill), has been ordered as a series by ABC.
  • NBC ordered three series with teen drama connections: Friends With Benefits, starring Danneel Harris (Rachel, One Tree Hill), Outlaw, previously called Justice and created by John Eisendrath (executive producer, Beverly Hills 90210), and Harry’s Law, previously called Kindreds and featuring Brittany Snow (Young Lily, Gossip Girl).
  • Luke Perry (Dylan, Beverly Hills 90210) worked with Soles4Souls today to aid those affected in Nashville by the floods.
  • Jessica Stroup (Silver, 90210) received the Sparkling Performance Award at last night’s Young Hollywood Awards, which were also attended by Jennie Garth (Kelly, Beverly Hills 90210), Snow, Wesley and Nikki Reed (Sadie, The O.C.) and possibly other teen drama stars.
  • Stroup has a new pixie haircut and spoke to about it.
  • Gossip Cop busted rumors that Ed Westwick (Chuck, Gossip Girl) and Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl) are back together. They are NOT…but anything is possible down the road.
  • NBC canceled Mercy, which starred Michelle Trachtenberg (Georgina, Gossip Girl) and James Van Der Beek (Dawson, Dawson’s Creek).
  • reports Michelle Williams (Jen, Dawson’s Creek) is in “active negotiations” to play Marilyn Monroe in a movie.
  • If you were a fan of The WB–and I imagine you were if you’re a Dawson’s Creek and One Tree Hill fan–I highly encourage you to check out this roundup of promos from the network, featuring those casts and many other teen drama stars. It’s a chillingly beautiful trip down memory lane.

Personally, I’m not liking Stroup’s new haircut only because it makes her look too old and she’s suppose to be playing a high school student. Hopefully she’s going to grow it out in season 3. Her long hair makes her look younger.

I think Ed and Jess are back together because has new pics of them out shopping together this past week 🙂

Lexy, I hear ya. So many good shows, so many memories. And not just any kind of shows, but shows with substance and heart. We need more of that again.

Wes, did you actually bother to read what I linked to regarding Ed and Jess? If you did, you’d see it mentions the pictures of them hanging out and explains that that’s all it was…hanging out. Unlike, Gossip Cop (where I work) actually has a connection to Ed and was able to verify it with him that they are not back together. But, hey, you’re free to believe whatever you want.

Oh lol I didn’t read the full article because the link wouldn’t open up on my laptop for some reason. I wasn’t trying to offend you or anything. I was just going off of what was posted here and the pics I saw. I think I must have misread it or something. My bad.

I loved all of the WB’s promos and shows also. Their shows were pretty great, even the comedies. I doubt the CW can recapture that genuine feeling. Hopefully they can.
