Blair gets ‘Dirty’
The character of Simon Elder will be introduced later in the season as a potential nemesis of the wealthy, troubled Darling family that’s the series’ focus, ABC announced last week. Peter Krause (“Six Feet Under”) stars as the man hired to protect the family’s secrets.
The busy Mr. Underwood, 42, is also starring in the HBO drama series “In Treatment,” set for 2008, and will reprise the character of Mr. Harris opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus on CBS‘ “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” AP said.
Hungry for the Wolf
According to Variety, the alphabet network and its sibling ABC Studios have inked a talent holding deal with Mr. Wolf to develop a project built around him or to cast him in one of the network’s 2008-09 pilots.
Although one of the best-reviewed newcomers of the 2006-07 season, “The Nine” failed to catch on with audiences and was pulled after a handful of episodes.
Mr. Wolf has been a regular small-screen presence since breaking out in 1994 as Bailey in Fox’s “Party of Five.” He followed that with a two-season gig on the WB’s “Everwood.”
WETA to make TV doc
“The History of Television,” which is a working title, received a green light after scoring a $2 million grant from PBS and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. News of the project — slated to air on PBS in spring 2009 — was announced last week by TV Academy Foundation Chairman Steve Mosko and WETA’s executive vice president/chief programming officer, Dalton Delan.
“Television is a medium in transition and there is no better time to step back and appreciate where it has been and where it is going,” Mr. Mosko said. “This is a milestone for the foundation.”
The project will take advantage of the TV Academy Foundation’s Archive of American Television, which includes interviews with iconic TV pioneers and other materials. The organization will also initiate a fundraiser to “create maximum impact for both the TV series and its other component parts.”
