I have to say, a good way to start the day is to have breakfast with the cast of Prison Break. It’s not so tough gazing at Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell. I actually spent more time talking to producers Matt Olmstead and Zack Estrin to get the scoopage, but trust me I made time to get a good look at the cast. The show will be set in LA this season, and they’ll be breaking into something, rather than breaking out. That’s all I can tell you for now.
Next up was Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy, Mia Michaels and Cat Deeley from So You Think You Can Dance. I happen to love that show, but I had to ask Mia why she was so mean. She said she isn’t that’s she’s just honest. (Cough) Kevin Reilly, the president of Fox Ent. did his thing and then we had the producers and cast from FRINGE. Loved it. I’ll say that right now. But many of my brethren didn’t get it. I’m not sure why, but I thought it was smart and interesting.
Lots of controversy with the crew from Fox News with Karl Rove, Chris Wallace, and Chris Wallace. Yawn. Next up was Jerry O’Connell and the cast from Do Not Disturb. That’s a new comedy set in a hotel. Um, probably ought to give that one another chance before I say anything. The cast of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles was up and I have to tell you I’m so excited about that show. Just one problem, the wouldn’t tell us anything about the new season. Made me kind of mad when asked and they didn’t say anything useful. Whatever.
During the coffee break we had a chance to talk to the cast from 24. The prequel looks cool. We saw a presentation and it was pretty awesome. Secret Millionaire is a new show about philanthropy. Then we had all of Fox’s animation shows. Lots o’ fun.
The party tonight is Santa Monica Pier. Fox takes the place over and it should be fun. Once again I’ll try not to drool on Hugh Laurie. They have folks there from all the shows. Should be fun evening, but a late one, hence the reason I’m posting now.
Do you have a favorite fox show?
