News Roundup: Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, 90210 and Dawson’s Creek

30 07 2010
  • Warner Brothers on DVD released a bunch of clips that will be on the Gossip Girl Season 3 DVD and One Tree Hill Season 7 DVD next month.
  • Austin Nichols (Julian, One Tree Hill) tweeted that Beautiful Boy, which features him, will screen at the Toronto Film Festival.
  • There is a second part to the Kelly Tenney (co-producer, One Tree Hill) video interview with Carol Cutshall (costume designer, One Tree Hill).
  • Star News has an interview with Craig Sheffer (Keith, One Tree Hill). He doesn’t seem too fond of his character, which is sad considering how beloved Keith is by fans.
  • AfterElton is reporting they believe they know which male character is coming out this season 90210. I do not know if their information is accurate; it could be.
  • Call Me Fitz, starring Jason Priestley (Brandon, Beverly Hills 90210), will premiere September 19 in Canada.
  • TNT has renewed Leverage, which stars Christian Kane (Nick, Dawson’s Creek), and Rizzoli & Isles, which stars Sasha Alexander (Gretchen, Dawson’s Creek) and features Jordan Bridges (Oliver, Dawson’s Creek).




BREAKING: Confirmed 22-Episode Order For One Tree Hill

30 07 2010

I have personally confirmed with a show publicist that One Tree Hill does have a 22-episode order for season eight.

Suspicions arose yesterday after The Futon Critic, a generally reliable and respected site, reported they received confirmation from CW entertainment president Dawn Ostroff after yesterday’s TCA executive session that the order had been increased from 12/13 to the full-season amount of 22.

With no other outlets reporting, and Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) as well as the official One Tree Hill Twitter account seemingly confused by this news, I sought out confirmation (last night, actually) and received it today.

UPDATE





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

29 07 2010
  • The CW had an event today, similar to the upfront, for the TCA (Television Critics Association), a somewhat-selective organization of television journalists. CW entertainment president Dawn Ostroff spoke and took questions before separate panels for Nikita, Hellcats and Gossip Girl.
  • The Futon Critic is reporting that Ostroff confirmed One Tree Hill has been given a full-season order for the upcoming season, but, as of this moment, I am not seeing other outlets reporting that.
  • Ostroff told Star News last night that OTH could be renewed after season 8, which Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) thinks is “fishy.” Today Ostroff said that it was too soon to discuss whether this is the final season.
  • Ostroff also said there WASN’T an alternate ending for OTH last season, in case the show wasn’t renewed. (Something I maintained all along, if you recall.)
  • Ostroff reiterated that the morning-after Nielsen ratings are not the only factor that is important to them when evaluating a show’s success (hence the renewals of Gossip Girl, 90210, etc.). TVByTheNumbers.com has an interesting piece reacting to this.
  • For more on the session with Ostroff, check out these live-blogs and recaps.
  • The Gossip Girl panel featured Ed Westwick (Chuck), Josh Schwartz (executive producer), Stephanie Savage (executive producer) and Joshua Safran (executive producer).
  • A preview of season 4 was shown and some spoilers were divulged. Taylor Momsen (Jenny) will be back (something else I’ve maintained all along), and the producers admitted that they have an idea of how the show will eventually end but said it’s a long time off.
  • For more on the Gossip Girl panel, check out these live-blogs and recaps. (Warning: spoilers included.)
  • Korbi has a spoiler-filled Q & A with Schwartz and Savage.
  • Chace Crawford (Nate, Gossip Girl) was on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night.
  • Crawford spoke with MTV about Juliet (Katie Cassidy, Gossip Girl) and GG shooting in Paris, which he did not partake in.
  • AfterElton spoke with Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210), Michael Steger (Navid, 90210) and Matt Lanter (Liam, 90210) individually about the possibility that one of their characters will be the one that comes out this season. Interestingly enough, they each give contradictory stories on how everyone found out about the storyline.
  • Crushable’s interview with Lanter on the same topic is a bit contradictory, too, as he says he knows which character it is, but the above interviews seem to suggest they don’t know who it is, if I’m reading this all correctly. Oh, and there’s totally Lannie spoilers in that interview.
  • AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210) spoke to Us Weekly about Kim and Khloe Kardashian’s guest appearance.
  • Jessica Stroup (Silver, 90210) performed a powerful monologue by Eve Ensler for MTV.
  • Rachel Bilson (Summer, The O.C.) will reprise her How I Met Your Mother role.
  • Joshua Jackson (Pacey, Dawson’s Creek) hilariously spoke with MTV about Pacey-Con. LOL at the Jen-Con comment. I’m sure the reunion thing, though, will end up being blown way out of proportion by the media.




Matt Lanter on 90210 vs. Beverly Hills 90210 Romances

29 07 2010

“It would be nice to have Liam hook up with someone and have a solid relationship with them and not just have it be a one episode on, one episode off. People enjoyed that about the original series. There were couples and they will forever be remembered as Brenda and Dylan.”

28 07 2010
  • Gossip Cop and I busted a rumor about Ed Westwick (Chuck, Gossip Girl) and the rest of the cast alienating Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl).
  • Twelve, starring Chace Crawford (Nate, Gossip Girl), had a premiere event in New York City tonight.
  • Taylor Momsen (Jenny, Gossip Girl) spoke about being the face of the Material Girl clothing line and working with Madonna and her daughter Lourdes.
  • Lucas’ house on One Tree Hill is for sale.
  • There’s an interview with Hilarie Burton (Peyton, One Tree Hill) in the new issue of TV Guide Magazine.
  • Self.com has a video interview with Burton.
  • Kelly Tenney (co-producer, One Tree Hill) did a video interview with Carol Cutshall (costume designer, One Tree Hill) for SoGoPro.
  • Details of Brian Austin Green’s (David, Beverly Hills 90210) role on Desperate Housewives were revealed at a TCA panel yesterday.
  • PEOPLE.com has an interview with Tiffani Amber Thiessen (Valerie, Beverly Hills 90210) about her nursery, including more pictures and details than what were in the magazine last week.
  • Fanbolt has a really great interview with Thiessen on a variety of topics.
  • Gossip Cop and I busted another manipulative Life & Style cover story, which makes it looks like Katie Holmes (Joey, Dawson’s Creek) has confessed to them she’s pregnant, when in actuality she didn’t tell them anything like that and (shocker) she’s not pregnant! Grrr.
  • Joshua Jackson (Pacey, Dawson’s Creek) says he’s willing to appear on The Vampire Diaries, which is executive produced by Kevin Williamson (creator, Dawson’s Creek).
  • RTE has an interview with Busy Philipps (Audrey, Dawson’s Creek).
