  • The full trailer for The Romantics, starring Katie Holmes (Joey, Dawson’s Creek) and featuring Adam Brody (Seth, The O.C.) has been released. I believe Holmes also produced. I am really looking forward to it. It seems to have many teen drama elements, though the characters are older.
  • Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek) is now on Twitter. The account is linked to the Life Unexpected cast Facebook page. I’ve updated the Twitter Directory. Thanks to MJ for letting me know.

  • There will be a One Tree Hill/Life Unexpected crossover this season. Mild spoilers involved so read at your own risk. Also, odd that Ausiello vastly overstated OTH’s ratings. Also also, LUX stars Shiri Appleby (Rene, Beverly Hills 90210) and Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek).

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

  • In response to a fan question about Lucas (Chad Michael Murray, One Tree Hill) and Peyton (Hilarie Burton, One Tree Hill) returning, Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) tweeted, “Doesn’t look that way guys,” and later tweeted again (along with spoilish answers to some others questions) “LOOKS like no Peyton/Luke.” As far as where Leyton are, Bush tweeted, “They moved to Australia with their baby, to live with Karen and Andy :)” before correcting herself later by saying that it’s actually New Zealand. And Bush tweeted again later on, after being asked whether she misses the characters, “I’m so happy for them to have gotten what they want in real life, so I’m OK with it. People have to do what’s best for them!”
