‘V’ production takes 2 week ‘creative hiatus’…

Oh I hope all is well in V land. IIRC they were doing re editing and re shoots of the pilot after it was screened at SDCC 09, but now they are on a two week hiatus so they seem to think they have an issue someplace….our previous posts on V here and here

…Joseph Adalian at The Wrap reports:

ABC’s buzz-heavy new fall drama “V” is taking a two-week creative hiatus.

Warner Bros. TV has decided to temporarily shut down production on the alien invasion series, with filming scheduled to halt next Wednesday, a studio rep confirmed exclusively to TheWrap. Because “V” doesn’t premiere until Nov. 3, the move won’t impact scheduling of the series or ABC’s ability to air the six episodes it’s planning for the fourth quarter.

The studio wouldn’t discuss the specific reasons behind the move, saying only that the shutdown was designed to boost “V” in the long-term.

WBTV wants to “take advantage of our November premiere to maximize creative opportunities and deliver the audience the best show possible,” a Warners spokesperson said.

People familiar with the decision indicated the hiatus was put in place so that writers would have time to beef up future scripts and bring them in line with the quality of the pilot, which has been getting good buzz from bloggers and critics since a successful screening at Comic-Con last month.

AceHQ has the scoop. Yeah it was really stressful what with having to distract everyone from the GINORMOUS deficit with appointing Bernanke, and then Teddy went and died on him, RIGHT THERE IN THE VINEYARD! How discourteous!

Reminder: April 2008, courtesy of v4Hill,  it was clear he was no workhorse then, he took 2 vacations during the election for Gawd’s sake..Hillary and MAC/Palin were all over the country rain, shine, voices gone..no vacations. both over 20 yrs older..uh-huh.

Well with all this kerfuffle you understand Barry needs time to eat waffles and so on and so forth, so he is taking a vacation from his vacation so reports our crack media…

…deputy White House spokesman Bill Burton told reporters traveling with the president that Obama will take a few more days off once he returns to Washington next week: Obama will be headed home by Sunday but plans to head up to the presidential retreat, Camp David, in the middle of the week.

“He’s looking to get a break from his vacation,” Burton deadpanned. “Obviously, some things have come up over the course of the week.”…

NO SHXT BURTON, THIS IS THE PRESIDENCY! SHXT HAPPENS, LIKE, CONSTANTLY! HE WANTED THE JOB REMEMBER?

Remember the Aerosmith album, Permanent Vacation? I would be fine with that if the journOlists promise not to talk about his golf game while he is on it…just appoint some career bureaOcrats and give the CIA back the reins on terrorism first please…

…On Thursday, no sooner had he returned from bike riding at the far western end of Martha’s Vineyard than he embarked on his third golf game of the week at the eastern end. Today’s course: the 7,012-yard Vineyard Golf Club in Edgartown, known as the island’s toughest…

Coloradoan.com:

Some people, including Medicare recipients, will have to give up some current benefits to truly reform the nation’s health-care system, Rep. Betsy Markey told a gathering of constituents in Fort Collins on Wednesday.

Markey has repeatedly said during the August congressional recess that Medicare spending needs to be reined in to help pay for reforming the broader health-care system.”There’s going to be some people who are going to have to give up some things, honestly, for all of this to work,” Markey said at a Congress on Your Corner event at CSU. “But we have to do this because we’re Americans.”…

The article goes on to say many attendees seem ‘supportive’ of the Obama Plan, guess they missed this on Aug 22nd outside Markey;s office:

‘Heathers’ new tv series planned…

Created by viciousangel18

Our previous post on Heathers here

NYPost:

First it was coming to Broadway, then it was headed back to the big screen, but now it’s been confirmed that “Heathers” will live on as a weekly television show.

“We talked about doing a film remake at times, but doing it for TV seemed like a fresh and original idea,” Lakeshore president Gary Lucchesi told Variety. And despite my previous proclamations of childhood rape when my favorite pop culture touchstones are reappropriated, I am so behind this idea, I would wear its scrunchie if asked.

Basically this will be Fox’s version of “Gossip Girl,” which in my opinion, you can never have too much of. No word yet on whether OG stars Winona Ryder, Shannen Doherty, Christian Slater or Martha Dumptruck will return, but considering they could all use the work, I’d expect to see some familiar faces roaming the halls of Westerberg High….
