Secret Diary of a Call Girl Gets a Fourth and Final Season

  • 8comments

... Showtime has renewed Secret Diary of a Call Girl for a fourth and final season. The last eight episodes of the series will air in early 2011, but that might not be the last you'll see of Billie Piper. Rumor has it that the show could be made into a movie. [THR]

... More Showtime news: Mark-Paul Gosselaar, a.k.a. Saved by the Bell's Zack Morris, is heading to Weeds next season to play a new bar-owner love interest for Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker). And Tommy Lee is guest-starring (presumably as himself, but who knows?) next season on Californication. [E! Online]

... Turns out President Obama really likes Entourage—and the show's executive producer Doug Ellin really wants to get him on the show. Lucky for Ellin, he has a connection: Rahm Emmanuel's brother, Ari Emmanuel, is the real-life inspiration for Ari Gold. Oh boy. [MarketWatch]

... A little Sopranos reunion is in the works, though not in the form of a movie based on the show. Show creator David Chase and star Steven Van Zandt (who played Silvio Dante) are actually working together on a film about a New Jersey band in the '60s. I hope Van Zandt's bandmate Bruce makes a cameo. [NY Daily News]

... Jerry Seinfeld is joining his ex-boyfriend, Keith Hernandez, in the broadcast booth to provide color commentary for a few innings during next Wednesday's Mets-Tigers game. Man, I wish I lived in New York. [NY Post]

... Tiger Woods' former swing coach coach Hank Haney's next project will be—drumroll, please—Rush Limbaugh. The right-wing politician is the third celebrity, after Charles Barkley and Ray Romano, to seek Haney's tutelage on the Golf Channel's The Haney Project. [NY Post]

... The Kardashian sisters are going to write an advice book—Kardashian Konfidential—and it's going to be filled with "lots of pictures." I think I just felt a few thousand brain cells die in my head. [US Magazine]

... ABC is taking Happy Town off the air again. The show was axed from the network's spring schedule after only a couple episodes, and now it's being removed from the summer schedule, too. The remaining episodes will air on some random Saturday night in July. [Live Feed]

... We finally know who Vanessa Williams is going to play on Desperate Housewives next season! Her character's name is Renee Filmore-Jones, and she was Lynette Scavo's (Felicity Huffman) rival in college. Oh, and—hold the phone—she has a big secret. [TVGuide]

... ABC Family has a new show in development. It's called Shadows, and it's about a secret spy-training program at Harvard. I sincerely hope that the show's producers cast Ethan Peck, Lindsey Shaw, and all of the other unfortunate victims of the 10 Things I Hate About You cancellation. [THR]
