SEAN BEAN TO TOPLINE 'THE FRANKENSTEIN CHRONICLES' TV SERIES! CLOTHES OF IN 'STRIP OR TREAT' 'BABY DADDY' HALLOWEEN SPECIAL! JAMES DENTON JOINS CATHERINE BELL IN 'GOOD WITCH' TV SHOW! ABC'S 'BOOKCLUB' SITCOM

SEAN BEAN TO TOPLINE
THE FRANKENSTEIN CHRONICLES' TELEVISION SERIES
Still a very slow period in movie news business, people, so we're sticking to the small screens, starting with an interesting info coming over from the United Kingdom, where their ITV Encore will produce a television series on infamous monster Frankenstein. Titled THE FRANKENSTEIN CHRONICLES, this modern reworking of Mary Shelley's 19th century horror story will see Sean Bean play John Marlott, a detective who must battle a creature born of dark science in six one hour episodes! Meanwhile, a number of Frankenstein movies is coming to the big screens, including the one in which James McAvoy is Dr. Frankenstein with Daniel Radcliffe as his hunchback butler Igor!

ABC ORDERS
'BOOKCLUB' TV COMEDY 
In sitcom news, ABC has bought BOOKCLUB comedy series from Eva Longoria and Universal! In the vein of 'Bridesmaids' and 'The Hangover', BOOKCLUB revolves around four female friends who escape the pressures and responsibilities of adult life by pretending to be in a book club.
JAMES DENTON IN 'THE GOOD WITCH'
Another series for my ladies, THE GOOD WITCH, which is in production over at Hallmark, has just cast James Denton! The ten episode show will see Catherine Bell playing the raven haired enchantress Cassie Nightingale. Denton will play Cassie Nightingale’s new nextdoor neighbour, a divorced doctor and single dad who stirs things up in Middleton when he discovers Cassie’s signature charm is more than just a magic touch.

'BABY DADDY'S HALLOWEEN
SPECIAL 'STRIP OR TREAT'
Don't forget to check out the delightful trailer for one of TV's most charming comedy series BABY DADDY's special Halloween episode which airs this Wednesday at ABC Family!  In "Strip or Treat" - Ben (Jean Luc Bilodeau), Danny (Derek Theler) and Tucker (Tahj Mowry) are looking forward to attending the biggest Halloween celebration in the city, despite the fact that Bonnie (Melissa Peterman) thinks they should take baby Emma trick-or-treating instead. When their plans fall through, they decide to crash the party Riley (Chelsea Kane) was talking about, not knowing it’s actually a bachelorette party. But when the guys are mistaken for the strippers, Ben makes a big mistake that results in them being carted off to jail. Meanwhile, Bonnie’s date with Javier goes horribly wrong and she lands in jail alongside Ben, Danny and Tucker. Will Riley be able to work her lawyer magic and bail her friends out of this mess, or will everyone get what they deserve?

    5. It just didn't satisfy the audience worldwide.

  3. James Denton YAY! He's from Goodlettsville, Tennessee, which is pretty much where I'm from (Hendersonville, about 10 miles away). I just LOVED him in Desperate Housewives--although even he wasn't enough to keep me watching that show after the first season or two, when it devolved into soap opera blahness.

    1. yep, that show did go the wrong path after first two or three seasons when they pretty much turned into a crime show with new characters they didn't know what to do with .. but it was always well written when it comes to the four main characters

  4. Okay from Harry to humped... and...
    Uh - today's picking are so nice, Dezmond dear. I was drooling over Sean, then lusting for James, when I suddenly realized: "This will be the best Halloween ever."

    3. I don't care which way it goes -- I'd watch James McAvoy read the phone book!

    4. same here, although, I must admit I don't like his movie choices lately, he's gone crime/violent in recent years

  6. I like the sound of THE FRANKENSTEIN CHRONICLES. I prefer the mini series style, rather than a long series where they often run out of ideas but keep going anyway.

    Also, I'm loving your stylish pumpkin shirt. Not many can pull off orange, but I reckon you could master any colour.

    1. Mini series are the new craze in television world! They now call them event series.

      I really could :) although I prefer not to wear black (when I want dark I go midnight blue) and some colours I wear only in details

      Delete
    2. I don't mind the occasional black, but I usually jazz it up with bright colour.

      oops, my bad.... event series! I must remember that!

    3. and then there's the mix between British 'drama' and American 'show' or 'series' (the word Brits use for 'season' not for 'show')

      Delete
    4. Ha, being Aussie, I'm used to a mix of Brit and American language.

    5. I bet you have your own words too down there :) I wish Ryan Kwanten would teach me some of them :)

  8. Might be slow for movies, but I think all the tv shows sound good! I'd really like to catch that Frankenstein Chronicles! I haven't seen James Denton in anything since Desperate Housewives, so I am happy he's going to be in something that I will probably watch.

    1. yep, TV programmes have become much better than most movies in recent years. I'm missing Marcia Cross from HOUSEWIVES! Most other cast members have found other work.
