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

19 08 2010
  • The CW has pulled 18 to Life from its schedule. It will be replaced by repeats of Life Unexpected, which stars Shiri Appleby (Rene, Beverly Hills 90210) and Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek).
  • ABC News has a “Where Are They Now?” piece about some of the Beverly Hills 90210 cast members. Note: it lacks accuracy and completeness. Guess they don’t have a fact-checker.
  • The TV Fanatic has an interview with Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl). Warning: spoilers included.
  • Everly, featuring Bethany Joy Galeotti (Haley, One Tree Hill), has launched a blog. They also have an official YouTube page now.
  • MovieMaker has an interview with Amanda Schull (Sara/Katie, One Tree Hill). Warning: slight spoiler at the end.
  • Covert Affairs, featuring Peter Gallagher (Sandy, The O.C.) and Emmanuelle Vaugier (Nicki, One Tree Hill) and executive produced by Doug Liman (executive producer, The O.C.) and Dave Bartis (executive producer, The O.C.), has been renewed for a second season.
  • New York magazine has a fun interview with Gallagher.
  • Zap2it has a great interview with Melinda Clarke (Julie, The O.C.). Love that she wants to reunite, so to speak, with Tate Donovan (Jimmy, The O.C.).
  • TVOvermind has an interview with Brittany Daniel (Eve, Dawson’s Creek). I wasn’t sure if she was coming back to The Game, but she says she is.

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

18 08 2010
  • The CW will have a fall preview at the Paley Center in Los Angeles on September 15, featuring a “premiere screening of a CW returning favorite” but it likely won’t be Gossip Girl, 90210 or One Tree Hill since they will all have premiered earlier that week.
  • Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl) is on the cover of Interview’s September issue. The interview, conducted by her The Town co-star and director, Ben Affleck, is really great.
  • Hilary Duff (Olivia, Gossip Girl) is on the cover of OK! Magazine, giving the tab an exclusive about her recent wedding.
  • 90210 will soon air in India on the new Big CBS network. CBS Television Studios produces 90210, and the CBS Corporation owns 50 percent of The CW.
  • PopWrap has a spoiler-filled interview with Matt Lanter (Liam, 90210). One immediate thought (and I’ll admit I’m unfairly judging without seeing the episodes and just relying on what he said): I don’t know what this show has against continuity.
  • TVGuide.com reports that Michael Trucco (Cooper, One Tree Hill) could make another appearance on V.
  • Emmanuelle Vaugier (Nicki, One Tree Hill) is not on Twitter after all. A Covert Affairs associate producer has tweeted an apology for saying it is her when it is actually an impersonator. Uncool.

  • WTAM Radio has an interview with Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl).

  • Kristin tweeted that Gossip Girl’s Chuck and Blair are not the subject of her wedding spoiler.
  • Josh Schwartz (executive producer, The O.C.) had tweeted this morning that there is “no truth” to the rumor that Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl) has asked to have her character killed so she could leave the show BUT several hours later I saw that the tweet was deleted. When I checked with The CW earlier this week about this rumor, they issued a “no comment.” Interpret as you wish.
  • Penn Badgley (Dan, Gossip Girl) will present at the MTV Video Music Awards next month.
  • Badgley did a feature for the launch issue of Bullet magazine, but I don’t believe it’s out yet. There’s a behind-the-scenes video where he talks about the photo shoot and shows off some of his pian0-playing and singing skills.
  • Luke Kleintank (Elliott, Gossip Girl) has been cast on The Young And The Restless.
  • Star News came up with an interesting list of 5 crossover ideas for One Tree Hill.
  • JustJared claims Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) and Austin Nichols (Julian, One Tree Hill) will present the Breakthrough in Green Innovation award to Global Green at the Breakthrough of the Year Awards this weekend. He apparently previously reported that Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl) will get the Breakthrough Actress in Film award while AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210) will get the Breakthrough Standout Performance award.
  • Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210) tweeted that he will be part of the city of Beverly Hills’ 9.02.10 Day celebrations, and he’s hosting a contest related to it.
  • SoapNet will have a Beverly Hills 90210 “Labor Of Love” marathon on Labor Day with Kelly-Dylan season 3 episodes. I could not be any happier. (Well, I’d be happier it if it was a super-long marathon about their whole relationship over the 10 seasons but…this…is…awesome!)
  • EW.com has a “first look” at Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210) on Desperate Housewives.
  • The Associated Press has an article about Vanessa Marcil (Gina, Beverly Hills 90210) returning to General Hospital.
  • According to TVGuide.com, Shailene Woodley (Kaitlin, The O.C.) makes $40,000 per an episode for The Secret Life Of The American Teenager, while one-time Beverly Hills 90210 guest star Ashley Tisdale will be making $30,000 an episode for The CW’s Hellcats.
  • Benjamin McKenzie (Ryan, The O.C.) will be performing in The Glass Menagerie in California from September 1 to October 17.

Spoiler: Watch With Kristin

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

Reed in North Carolina: Are One Tree Hill and Life Unexpected really doing a crossover?
Yes, it’s true! Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) and Mia (Kate Voegele) will swing by to see Cate (Shiri Appleby) at the radio station for some nice crossover love on the Oct. 12 episode of LUX. I’m told the CW execs are hoping to get the OTH crowd fully sucked into LUX—as you should be!

Enough Chuck and Blair! I want the goods on Rufus and Lily, the best couple on television. What’s up for them thi season? Also, is Michele Trachtenberg going to be a regular?
I’m told that Michele is not a series regular, though we’ll definitely be seeing her in the beginning of the season, obviously. And as for Rufus and Lily, not a whole lot of major action going on there in the beginning of the season. But stay tuned!

Drew: Is the baby really Dan’s on Gossip Girl? Will Jenny Humphrey be back?
No comment re: the baby. But think about it! As for Little J, yes, she will return.

Anything good coming up on Gossip Girl?
Well, when I asked a good show source if there’s hope for Chuck and Blair he said “Of course,” so take that for what you will. Meanwhile, in real life, our very own Hollywood Party Girl is reporting at Jessica Szohr and Ed Westwick have reunited into full-fledged coupledom. Guess he doesn’t really care that just last week, Jessica was swapping spit with another gal (and we know this little gem thanks in large part to our partner in crime Marc Malkin). I wish Kristen Bell‘s voice was narrating all this cause it’d be far more fascinating…

Nadia: Will Quinn be back on One Tree Hill?
Yep!

Notes:

Appleby played Rene on Beverly Hills 90210, and LUX also stars Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek).

Take the Szohr and Westwick stuff with a grain of salt.





News Roundup: One Tree Hill, The O.C. and Dawson’s Creek

3 08 2010
  • The CW has started releasing teaser trailers for the fall season, so be sure to check out the video portion of their site and the individual show pages.
  • Despite The CW confirming it to me and others last week, Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) tweeted today that One Tree Hill still has not been given a full-season order, and the Real One Tree Hill Twitter account seems to be backing her up. Zap2it, which had also confirmed the 22-episode order, has now retracted their confirmation, saying the order remains at 13. Regardless, there is clearly a disconnect somewhere between the network, the show and the information being distributed by both. I cannot verify what information has been exchanged between network and cast/crew. All I can tell you is what I’ve been told by the network, which is always subject to change. Believe what you wish and, well, sit tight.
  • Bush has a new blog post on her official site, where she announces she’s running a half-marathon this fall.
  • Gossip Cop and I busted a rumor about Mischa Barton (Marissa, The O.C.) “quitting Hollywood.”
  • Heroine TV’s “Dawson’s Creek: It Should Have Been Joey’s Creek” is a must-read amazing post with reflections on the show, the core four and (swoon) Joey and Pacey. Make sure you check it out. Immediately.
  • Remember the “limo” the Dawson’s Creek gang took to senior prom? Star News tracked it down.
  • A teaser trailer for Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark, starring Katie Holmes (Joey, Dawson’s Creek) has been released.
