The Ben and Locke Show is Happening!

... What once was just science-fiction is now science-fact! That show pitch Terry O'Quinn was shopping around starring him and former Lost co-star Michael Emerson is actually happening. J.J. Abrams has come on board and NBC has purchased the rights. Called Odd Jobs, the show is believed to put the former Ben Linus and John Locke in a dramedy about former black operative agents. [Deadline Hollywood]

... A TV adaptation of Goodfellas is making the rounds at networks, and of course the networks are drooling over it. I'm a big fan of the movie, and think it should remain a movie. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Super hottie Eliza Dushku (she's a flirt!) isn't regularly employed, but you will be able to see her on TV soon. The former Dollhouse star and producer will guest star on The Big Bang Theory as an FBI agent who does a background check on Howard to grant him a high-level of security clearance. [Fancast]

... Good news One Tree Hill and Hellcats fans, the CW has ordered six more scripts for each show, improving their chances at renewal—or at least of sticking around for a while. Noticeably absent on the order list is Life Unexpected. :( [The Live Feed]

... Lifetime has renewed Army Wives and Drop Dead Diva. Please provide your own commentary on that bit of news. [The Live Feed]

... Katy Perry dropped by Sesame Street dressed like a two-nickel whore, and parents complained. So her scene has been cut from the show, to the disappointment to sexually mature preschoolers all over. [The Live Feed]

Katy Perry was in a summer dress. How could she expose all these children to that? Really, America?

Awesome news about the Drop Dead Diva. It's a pretty impressive show for Lifetime. You should watch the first two seasons Mr. Tim Surette, you'll be surprised how good it is. Maybe then you'd be able to make your own commentary on the news.

Good news about the Ben and Locke show. Hope the Goodfellas TV show never happens, especially if it's not going to be on HBO or Showtime.

Outstanding news about J.J., Michael, and Terry. The premise sounds like fun and before Lost, most of Michael's theater acting was comedic. The other good news is Eliza Dushku guesting on Big Bang Theory.

I can't wait for Eliza to appear on Big Bang Theory.

SO excited to hear about Odd Jobs aka the Ben and Locke show !! Love Eliza Dushku from her Buffy days, but I don't watch The Big Bang Theory. Life Unexpected seems better this season so far - the characters are not as annoying as in the first season - but I won't be too upset if it goes away.

ben/michael and locke/terry show sounds interesting. love Eliza but i hate The Big Band Theory. Good for Hellcats, but i also hate One Tree Hill, it should've been cancelled after the first season. Life Unexpected is a WHOLE lot better than OTH

I'll check out Odd Jobs, but I dunno about it. What about a Hurley-based Lost spin-off??

Wow really? Katy Perry shows cleavage and you call her a 'two-nickel whore'? How do you have a job?

That is such a bad idea, If Terry and Michael are in the same show together it is going to be impossible to see them as anyone other than John Locke and Benjamin Linus especially since JJ Abrams will be involved and the fact that LOST ended recently won't help either, I'm glad they are apparently such good friens but would it kill then to work apart for a while?
