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 PEOPLE.com 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).
  • PEOPLE.com 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.

  • The headline alone of this article on Fringe, which stars Joshua Jackson (Pacey, Dawson’s Creek), makes it worth posting.

Spoiler: Watch With Kristin

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

Attention Upper East Siders: Hide your men and your liquor, because Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg) herself tells us that she’s coming back to Gossip Girl—this season—and just scandalous as evah!

Michelle breaks the news in the video down below, and even gives us a hint as to what sort of meddling she’ll be doing this time. (Could it involve Chuck Bass’ father?! Oh, how that girl teases. Love.)

Frances: Anything on Chuck Bass’ mother on Gossip Girl? Please!
Well, Michelle teases that her return to Gossip Girl may have something to do with Chuck’s upcoming family drama in the video below, but I’m pretty certain she’s kidding. See for yourself in the video, including her pitch to have a Dawn Summers-Dawson Leery romance on Mercy with James Van Der Beek. Um, yes please.

Chris: Is there any hope for Dan and Serena on Gossip Girl? Any at all?
When asked about hope for Dan and Serena on Gossip Girl, my source tells me “not at the moment.” But I suppose then you’re rooting for Jenny to steal Nate away?

Jamie in Austin, Texas: You’ve been holding out on the Leverage scoop, lady!
Let go of all of your doubts about Jeri Ryan stepping in as Leverage‘s designated grifter babe while Gina Bellman is on maternity leave. Jeri’s non-nonsense character Tara doesn’t really understand Nathan’s (Timothy Hutton) free-wheeling way of doing business, but she’s willing to learn and they turn out to be a great professional pairing. Leverage returns for a winter mini-season beginning this Wednesday at 10 p.m.

I’ve already posted about Van Der Beek’s role on Mercy. Dawn Summers was Trachtenberg’s role on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Jeri Ryan played Charlotte on The O.C. You can read more about her role on Leverage here.
