TV News – 10/29/09

Hey guys, it’s Jenny. Megan is moving into the new house and asked me to post up news for Thursday & Friday. Sorry Thursday’s is so late, but I think I have a bunch, so hopefully that’ll make up for the lateness! If she’s posted some of this already, forgive me. 😉

First up, you can watch the first teaser trailer for the new season of Lost on ABC.

Jump with me for more news!

Fans of True Blood, the books and the show, will be thrilled to hear that Alan Ball has declared that the werewolf, Alcide Herveaux, will definitely be in season 3. He hasn’t been cast yet, but he should even appear in the 1st episode. More info here: EOnline

Desperate Houseives creator, Marc Cherry, has extended his contract with ABC for 2 more years, which could keep the show on the air through at least 2013. Read more about whether the main cast will stick around that long, by choice or not, here: EOnline

Syfy gave a greenlight to a reimaging of the UK Series Being Human. I watched the first season on BBC America and really, really enjoyed it. From the article, it sounds like they are adapting it to an American audience. So instead of just showing the original on a US network, does that mean they are going to recast the characters, set it in America and not overseas, etc? *shrug* I’ll be interested, however they do it, if for no other reason than to just give it a shot!

Nick Swardson, who made appearances on Reno 911! and standup on Comedy Central, has been given the greenlight by Comedy Central for a 6 episode sketch series to premiere in 2010. To find out more about Nick Swardson and the upcoming series, check it out here: The Futon Critic
