News Roundup: Gossip Girl, The O.C., One Tree Hill and More

23 03 2010
  • Be sure to check out The CW’s site for all the new video content this week.
  • Last night’s Gossip Girl (1.9 million viewers rounded up) rose a bit in the ratings compared to last week.
  • Josh Schwartz (creator, Gossip Girl; The O.C.) and Stephanie Savage (creator, Gossip Girl; executive producer, The O.C.) have signed a deal to form their own production company, Fake Empire, under Warner Bros. TV.
  • The Wrap has an interview with Schwartz and Savage about their partnership. Among the highlights: an interesting question about the Gossip Girl spin-off and a reference to Aaron Spelling (executive producer, Beverly Hills 90210) and E. Duke Vincent (executive producer, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • Chace Crawford (Nate, Gossip Girl), Sebastian Stan (Carter, Gossip Girl), Michael Cassidy (Zach, The O.C.) and whoever else was in the running for Captain America have not gotten the part. Chris Evans was offered and has accepted the role. Some six degrees: Evans is the brother of Scott Evans, who has been playing the love interest of Brett Claywell (Tim, One Tree Hill) on One Life to Live.
  • Queer Sighted has an interview with Claywell about his storyline with Evans on OLTL and their firing.
  • Zap2it has a recap and video of Shannen Doherty (Brenda, Beverly Hills 90210) on Dancing With The Stars last night.
  • Zander Eckhouse, son of James Eckhouse (Jim, Beverly Hills 90210), will star in Huge, an ABCFamily series.
  • Star News has an interview with Mary Beth Peil (Grams, Dawson’s Creek). Have you read my interview with her?
