Cher Is Writing A Show For Logo And It Isn't Based On Her Batsh*t Tweets: Television Tidbits

The whole thing sounds like a horrible idea, but having Winona Ryder pop up is an even worse idea. I don't see Ryder signing on to a television show on Bravo so Veronica will be played by someone else. I'm guessing the other Heathers are probably available to reprise their roles, actually, so you may want to go for them and let the Ryder dream go.

Perhaps you remember Steven Lloyd Wilson telling you about an AMC series called "Turn". Well, Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) has been tapped to direct the pilot episode. If you can't be bothered to click the link, I will take this opportunity to remind you that "Turn" is about a farmer in New York in 1778. He forms The Culper Ring with his longtime friends and they become spies in the fight for America's independence. This could be great or this could be uneven, go through several showrunners, and have its budget slashed to ribbons, leaving us with a possible hate watch. It could go either way.

Stephen King's "Under The Dome" is still coming to television with a set premiere date of June 24th. CBS has decided to snag prime Super Bowl commercial time to entice viewers to the sure to be gore-filled adaptation of King's story of a town trapped under an invisible dome. Look for cows being sliced in half, chests exploding, and other disgusting deaths when the dome first touches down. Also when the townspeople turn on each other. Does this promise of carnage make the series more enticing? Does knowing it expands on the enormous tome drive you to take a look? It sort of makes me want to see how they get away with cable content on network television. I'm not sorry about that either. So nyah.
