While FOX has and Dollhouse
and TSCC have been the talk of the day, ABC has been solidifying their fall lineup
. I already had heard V
with Alan Tudyk and Morena Baccarin had been picked up, though it looks like for thirteen episodes rather than the six I had originally read about. And considering Amy Acker is in Happy Town
, I'm thinking she'll be helping Dollhouse
with their cost cutting. But here was the surprising (to me) news:Continuing its trend of green lighting quirky, high-concept shows, ABC is moving ahead with 'V', a revamp of the 1980s sci-fi series/miniseries, and Eastwick, a character-centric drama based on the John Updike novel and the Jack Nicholson movie, 'The Witches of Eastwick'. Actor Paul Gross will play the Nicholson role on Eastwick.
