TV News Wrap: Friday May 27
Not much in the way of news today… just some notable guest-casting coups;
- James Van Der Beek (“Dawson’s Creek”) is heading to Law and Order: SVU. He will also be appearing on the new TNT show Franklin and Bash.
- Martin Short and Alan Quinn will also pop up on Season 7 of the Showtime series Weeds.
- Star of Mad Men, Jon Hamm, will direct the first episode of the fifth season of the hit AMC show. Of course, you’ll have to wait until March 2012 to see it though.
- You can watch Hamish and Andy’s going away drinks party on the Herald Sun website from 6PM today. They will fly to the US to produce their show, Hamish and Andy’s Gap Year for Channel Nine.
- I can’t believe that there’s even speculation that someone will replace Adam Hills on Spicks and Specks for a number of reasons. 1) Because the combination of Adam, Myf and Alan is the show, when one element is taken out, it ceases to be Spicks and Specks; 2) Even if they tried, there would almost certainly be backlash, whoever they chose to replace him and 3) ABC would not even consider it because of these reasons, at least not for a couple of years.
