Casting News; New Shows Coming; Show Interaction

by Amy K. Bredemeyer

Yes, I am going to write about everything I saw and did at Comic-Con. I know that's what you're all looking forward to! But, as luck would have it, I'm already away on travel again, this time to Los Angeles. The Television Critics Association Press Tour starts tomorrow, and I'll be attending the first part this year (it's long. it goes for 12 days!). All sorts of wonderful things are going to happen, but they also take up the majority of every day, leaving me with very little time to do things like process Comic-Con and prepare giveaways. (Yes! you heard right. I'll be doing several contests for some free swag that I got!) If you want to read my third article for TVTango, it's here. Otherwise, enjoy the highlights of television news from the past week...

I mentioned last week that Mike Vogel had been cast in the new series PanAm. Well, it looks like they're even writing the role larger now that he's in the show!

Franklin & Bash got renewed for a second season. South Park will keep making new episodes through 2013. Happily Divorced also got picked up for a second season. On the other hand, Love Bites has been canceled.

Looks like Kevin Smith may be developing his own talk show. And, if you want to watch Shannen Doherty plan her wedding, apparently that's an upcoming option, too.

Odette Annable will join House in the fall. It doesn't look like she's taking Cuddy's role. In other casting news, John Goodman will be joining Community.

Want to experience Terra Nova? It may be coming to a city near you! If interaction is your thing, maybe you wanna bet on how Charlie Harper will be written out of Two and a Half Men... you can!

Mad Men is about to be available on Netflix streaming.

In November, TLC will roll out All-American Muslim which will look at several young adult Muslims as they balance their background with American culture. Another new show in development is The Exes (working title) for TVLand... which seems kinda similar to The Big Bang Theory in my opinion... But the most intriguing new show coming out is Same Name, where a person with the same name as a celebrity (in the pilot, David Hasselhoff) switches lives with that person for four days.
