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

26 08 2010
  • The Real One Tree Hill Twitter account tweeted a very brief video with Lee Norris (Mouth, One Tree Hill).
  • Examiner.com has an interview with Amanda Schull (Sara/Katie, One Tree Hill). She made some interesting comments when discussing a possible return to OTH.
  • A pretty big picture of Joe Manganiello (Owen, One Tree Hill) is on the cover of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. That’s a huge achievement. Congrats to Joe!
  • Jana Kramer (Alex, One Tree Hill) has officially filed for divorce. She and Johnathon Schaech split a few weeks ago.
  • Takers, which briefly features Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210), stars Chris Brown (Will, The O.C.), and also happens to star Schaech and Rachel Bilson’s (Summer, The O.C.) ex Hayden Christensen, opens in theaters tomorrow.
  • 90210 and Dawson’s Creek are included in The Daily Beast’s look at “racy TV show scenes.” It’s sad, though, how respectable DC’s is and how much 90210’s isn’t. That can be applied to the series as a whole, too, in my opinion.
  • Kristin has an “exclusive sneak peek” at 90210’s new season. Looks like some new characters we haven’t heard about may be introduced.
  • Earlier this month CBS announced a new channel in India, which would air 90210, and now it’s been announced a new channel will also air the show in Australia.
  • Gossip Cop busted a false Star story about Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • Taylor Momsen and her band The Pretty Reckless were on the Late Show With David Letterman last night.
  • Fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone is reportedly working with Fake Empire, which is run by Josh Schwartz (executive producer, Gossip Girl; The O.C.) and Stephanie Savage (executive producer, Gossip Girl; The O.C.), on a new fashion-based series.
  • OK! Magazine has a fall fashion feature with Autumn Reeser (Taylor, The O.C.).




News Roundup: One Tree Hill, 90210, The O.C. and Gossip Girl

26 05 2010
  • I am deeply saddened to report that Disney has decided to cease operations of SoapNet beginning in 2012. The network is being replaced with Disney Junior. As you are all aware, SoapNet currently airs reruns of One Tree Hill, Beverly Hills 90210 and The O.C. I do not know what this means for the syndication deals currently in place for those shows. Quite frankly, I am still trying to process this development. In the meantime, I have four things to offer: the press release from Disney, a post from SoapNet and articles from the New York Times and Entertainment Weekly, the latter of which makes some very interesting points. Thank you to Daniel and Gloria for alerting me to the news.
  • In the last Weekly Poll, all three questions had results with large margins. Sixty-three percent believe Quinn and Clay aren’t dead on One Tree Hill, though 5 percent believe it’s quite possible. Another 17 percent have no idea but hope not while 15 percent have no idea but hope so. The Jenny-Chuck storyline on Gossip Girl made 64 percent of voters feel disgusted while just 17 percent were entertained. Nine percent were torn while 10 percent are still trying to process it. Lastly, 71 percent believe 90210’s Naomi was about to be raped by Mr. Cannon. Nineteen percent don’t think that’s happened while 10 percent had no idea. The Weekly Poll will be on hiatus during, um, the hiatus. In the meantime, we have the show evaluations and soon I’ll be resuming weekly trivia on Twitter.
  • Korbi has the next part of her interview with Mark Schwahn (creator, One Tree Hill). Here he discusses whether he wants the show to continue past an eighth season.
  • Registration has opened for Christy-Anne’s second One Tree Hill fan reunion, which will be held this July.
  • Shannen Doherty (Brenda, Beverly Hills 90210) performed during last night’s Dancing With The Stars finale. I haven’t found YouTube video of it yet to link to.
  • Gossip Cop and I busted a false National Enquirer story about Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210) and Megan Fox.
  • The Huffington Post has an interesting interview with the band Rooney, and there’s some references to their appearance on The O.C.
  • Josh Schwartz (executive producer, Gossip Girl; The O.C.) and Stephanie Savage (executive producer, Gossip Girl; The O.C.) will produce the film Fun Size with their new company Fake Empire.
  • ESPN has a short interview with Ron Machado, who appears with Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl) in her Vogue spread.




Breaking News: One Tree Hill Renewed For 8th Season

18 05 2010

The CW has renewed One Tree Hill for an 8th season, according to Entertainment Weekly’s Michel Ausiello.

Ausiello reports The CW also renewed Life Unexpected, starring Shiri Appleby (Rene, Beverly Hills 90210) and Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek).

Ausiello says the renewals for OTH and LUX are for “at least 12 eps apiece.”

The network also reportedly ordered Nikita, featuring Melinda Clarke (Julie, The O.C.) and executive produced by McG (executive producer, The O.C.) , and Hellcats with Matt Barr (Ian “Psycho Derek” Banks, One Tree Hill; Keith van der Woodsen, Gossip Girl) and Robbie Jones (Quentin, One Tree Hill) as well as Ashley Tisdale, who once guest-starred on Beverly Hills 90210.

Per Ausiello, Melrose Place, which featured Laura Leighton (Sophie, Beverly Hills 90210) and Daphne Zuniga (Victoria, One Tree Hill), “is officially dead.”

The news is now being confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter as well as E!’s Kristin and other sources.

I have confirmed that the OTH folks do not yet know how many episodes the network will order, and Kristin reports that there is “no official word on what kind of episode orders OTH  and LUX have received, but we’re hearing they’ll split the season down the middle with 13 each.”

This presumably means Sophia Bush is out of the ABC pilot Southern Discomfort, since OTH takes priority. ABC has not yet announced whether they will order the pilot as a series or recast her role.

The CW will present their fall schedule to advertisers and the media Thursday morning in New York City. Honored to share I will be in attendance and tweeting from the event. A recap will be posted on TDW late in the day.

  • The Los Angeles Times has “five burning questions” on 90210. Spoilers already revealed the answers to numbers 3 and 4 but it’s still worth a read.
  • Greg Vaughan (Cliff, Beverly Hills 90210) tweeted that he’s “making his return to the new 90210.”  I guess that means he’ll be playing Cliff?  Who knows, though, considering 90210 2.0’s inconsistency.  Last month, Vaughan was fired from General Hospital.

Spoiler: Ask Ausiello

8 10 2009

RELEVANT QUESTIONS–DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!!!

Question: So, inquiring minds want to know: Is Rachel Bilson the mother on HIMYM? —Jeremy
Ausiello:
Look for exclusive details about Bilson’s character in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly (on sale Friday). In the meantime, Craig Thomas — who once again promises that episode 100 will feature “some pretty exciting stuff on the mother front” — says he and fellow exec producer Carter Bays are “big fans” of the former O.C. star. “She’s charming and great and we’re [excited] for her to come into such a big episode.”

Question: Are you going to narrow down the list of Gossip Girl threesome possibilities? —Sharon
Ausiello:
Yes, but not here. It wouldn’t be appropriate. I’ll do so in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, on sale Friday.

Question: I know you won’t tell us who is going to partake in the threesome on Gossip Girl, so I won’t even bother asking. I just want to know if it’s a dream or if it’s real. —Fernanda
Ausiello:
Oh, it’s real.

Question: I would love some (good) news about Chuck and Blair from Gossip Girl! —Lisa
Ausiello:
It doesn’t get much better than this: They’re still together and (relatively) happy through at least episode 11.

Question: Please tell me your Love and War blind item does not pertain to Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester? That would totally ruin Gossip Girl for me! —Whitney
Ausiello:
It’s not them either. Okay, this marks the end of the Love and War eliminations. You’re on your own now!
