In case you were wondering whether the Americanized version of the British comedy No Heroics was going to be any good or not, here's your first sign: Freddie Prinze Jr. has joined the cast. Feel free to draw your own conclusions.
No Heroics, an original comedy on the UK's ITV, is a sendup on superheroes with costumed crimefighters living among normal society. The show follows a group of superpowered friends who aspire to greatness, but don't mind using their powers to get laid or steal cigarettes. Prinze will play Ultimatum, the US version of Excelsior--the pompous, successful hero in the UK version.
Looks like Eric McCormack isn't too sure that his TNT series Trust Me will stick around for too long. The Will of Will & Grace has signed on to lead a new ABC comedy from Tad Quill (Dirty Sexy Money, Scrubs).
The part is his on the condition that his current show Trust Me does not get picked up for a second season, which is looking unlikely.
