    UPN (ended 2004)
    As co-owners of a contracting and roofing company, the Mullet brothers are blue-collar, wrestling-loving, light-hearted optimistic guys who don the hairstyle that bears their surname ("business in the front, party in the back"). The twenty-something brothers, who sport identical mullet haircuts, are actually a study in contrast. Dwayne Mullet (Michael Weaver) has an awesome set of muscles and a loud, wild, "in-your-face" demeanor, while Denny Mullet (David Hornsby) is a skinny, quieter, more thoughtful, easy-going guy. Dwayne figures with Denny's brain and Dwayne's body they've got the world in front of them, and they intend to live out their version of the American dream. Their mother, Mandi Mullet-Heidecker (Loni Anderson), a warm maternal type who also happens to be extremely sexy, couldn't be more proud of her offspring no matter what they do. Though she is sharper than her boys, she is obviously one of the family - in both attitude and wardrobe. She recently moved out of the house when she married her new husband, Roger Heidecker (John O'Hurley, "Over the Top") , the pompous host of the game show "Brainstorm," who, though he could not be more unrelated, is now stepfather to the Mullet brothers. When not working or lounging around their house, the brothers' regular hangout is the convenience store where they both vie for the attention of the clerk, a sweet and sunny girl-next-door type. The siblings live life to the fullest while dreaming of bigger and better futures, though their fantasies are out of step with their reality. (UPN Press Release) The show was created by former executive producers of The Simpsons, Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein, as well as being written by many former writers of Futurama. Only eight of the ten episodes, know to of been filmed aired and at least one more was written or filmed. The theme song to "The Mullets" is performed by Face to Face.

    Life-long best friends Todd, Alex and Wiseman share a New York apartment together, trying to figure out what to do with their post-college lives...then they meet their new neighbor Casey. They find themselves in New York City trying to negotiate the daunting realities of post-collegiate life – semi-mature relationships, steady employment and coming up with the rent, for example. Despite their seemingly similar situations, the members of this foursome take dramatically different approaches to life: Alex (Will Friedle, "Boy Meets World", "Go Fish"), an aspiring music critic who works as a researcher for a New York-based magazine, is responsible, dependable and sweet, though he yearns for the hip, edgy existence that always seems to elude nice guys. Todd (Sean Murray) has no such problem: he's the unmotivated guy who tries the least and gets the most. He has no plans—career or otherwise—and seems totally content, much to the bafflement (and envy) of his friends. Wiseman (Joshua Ackerman) is a dental technician who has never had to make a decision because his mother has made them all for him—including his selection of careers. Now, independent at last, he finds himself making some rather unusual personal choices. Casey (Natalia Cigliuti, "Pacific Palisades", "Odd Man Out") is a smart and mature NYU business school student, who as a recent transplant, is finding life in New York a little tougher than she had expected. Together they form an oddball kind of family, managing to negotiate the awkwardness of romantic breaks-ups, the frustrations of long-distance dating, the daunting search for the perfect New York apartment (or even a habitable one) and generally find a way to make a living while still having a life.moreless

    The short-lived series featured the day and night lives of two beat cops dealing with crimes, absurdities, and heart grief. It had a unique visual approach, switching from film to video when the cops stepped out to do their duty. Unfortunately, pressure from the PTA and lukewarm ratings combined to put a stop to The Beat after only six of 13 ordered and produced episodes were aired. The second episode featured a guest appearance by Richard Belzer's character, Detective John Munch, who had previously starred in Tom Fontana's signature series, Homicide:Life on the Street, and continued his career at Law & Order:Special Victims Unit. Episode titles were taken from song titles by Sting, Bob Dylan, and T. Rex, among others.moreless

    Welcome to the Second Time Around guide at TV.com! From executive producers Ralph Farquhar and Claude Brooks and co-executive producer Michelle Listenbee Brown, the new half-hour romantic comedy series SECOND TIME AROUND chronicles the adventurous relationship of a divorced couple that decides to remarry and pursue wedded bliss one more time. SECOND TIME AROUND, a production of Regan Jon Inc. and C to the B Productions in association with Paramount Television premieres Monday, September 20 at 9:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on UPN.. In the tradition of "Mad About You," and produced at the home of such classic comedies as "Frasier," "Cheers," and "Wings," SECOND TIME AROUND stars real-life couple Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Parker as newlyweds Jackson and Ryan Muse. Jackson, a hard-working architect, and Ryan, a free-spirited artist, are enjoying their more romantic second marriage after a heartfelt reunion. As marriage number two gets underway, the couple's family and friends are hedging their bets. Jackson's younger brother Nigel, portrayed by Brian White, is a dentist whose practice scarcely covers the lavish lifestyle of his snobbish fiancée Paula, played by Danielle Nicolet. Nigel and Paula are convinced that the twice-baked Muses need to join their couples' therapy group. While Ryan's lively best friend and hip café owner Coco, portrayed by Melissa De Sousa, is skeptical but supportive of the reunion. "This series is a story about two people who love each other in spite of the fact that, at times in the past, they didn't particularly like each other," explains creator and executive producer Ralph Farquhar. "SECOND TIME AROUND explores something that many married people have experienced - making it work and not giving up. It's about true love." Co-executive producer Michelle Listenbee Brown, who co-created the series with Farquhar, adds; "Despite their dissimilarities, Jackson and Ryan are convinced that it was their lack of experience and maturity that left them unable to handle the challenges of the first marriage. Eight years later, they proclaim themselves as 'soul mates' and are sure they've got it figured out. But although they're older and wiser, the issues between them are still the same." The presence of a real-life newly engaged couple has ignited the imaginations of the producers and writing staff. "Some details of Boris and Nicole's own stories have certainly worked there way into a few episodes," Farquhar explains. "Boris and Nicole are actually living aspects of this show, and there is alot of inspiration there. They are extremely supportive of one another and it's interesting to watch two actors work out of a true love and respect for one another." Brown agrees, "Boris and Nicole bring a nice energy to the process in that they are very loving and very supportive of each other on and off the set. He is protective of her and she is encouraging of him. It's inspiring to watch. Also, the newness of their relationship occasionally provides us with fodder for fresh directions in the storylines." The creators decided to fashion the series around a second marriage because of the unique challenges that remarriage to the same person would present. "A first marriage storyline will generally start at the top, with a clean slate. As problems and issues arise, the relationship has no other direction to go but down," explains Brown. "The appeal of a second marriage plotline is that the odds are stacked against these two from the moment they say, 'I do' again. It's nice that we, as an audience, are allowed to travel with them on a positive journey of reconnecting." In the first season, SECOND TIME AROUND will focus of the couple's rediscovery of each other. The pair will deal with some of the same problems they ran from in their first marriage - money, control, jealousy, insecurity and in-laws. Determined to bring a newfound maturity to matrimony this time, Jackson and Ryan frequently find themselves in awkward, but hilarious situations with old lovers, old pet peeves and old arguments. In a future episode, Jackson learns that Ryan has changed her mind about children since the first marriage and does not intend to have kids. In another episode, Ryan discovers that Jackson had toyed with the notion of giving her a prenuptial agreement for the second union, and begins to question his commitment. The series stars Nicole Parker ("Soul Food") as Ryan Muse, Boris Kodjoe ("Soul Food") as Jackson Muse, Brian White ("The Shield") as Nigel Muse, Melissa De Sousa ("Miss Congeniality") as Coco, and Danielle Nicolet ("3rd Rock from The Sun") as Paula. SECOND TIME AROUND is a production of Regan Jon Inc. and C to the B Productions in association with Paramount Television and is filmed before a studio audience at the Paramount Studios in Hollywood. Paramount Television is a unit of Viacom, Inc. Second Time Around airs Mondays at 9:30pm ET on UPN and is simulcast in HDTV. Editor: Dr. Bree DuBois As of right now no other co editors are needed. Theme Song is Performed by Macy Gray Broadcast History UPN September 2004---January 2005----Mondays @ 9:30/8:30c (Simulcast in HDTV) Unfortunately, the show no longer airs due to low ratings.moreless

    Welcome to the Talk Show Diaries (2005) guide at TV.com. "Talk Show Diaries" is a new comedy pilot that was executive produced by Courteney Cox (Friends) and David Arquette. Kathleen Rose Perkins ("Without a Trace"), Tami Roman ("The Real World: Los Angeles"), Richard T. Jones ("Judging Amy") and Richard Ruccolo ("Two Guys And A Girl") have all been cast in the comedy pilot, about the brutally honest, fiercely loyal and incredibly complex on- and off-camera exploits of the three female hosts of a morning talk show. Rowe will play Blake Brown, who's described in the casting notice as: 30s. A handsome man. He's the executive producer of "Friends in the Morning. However, he's under no illusion that he's the "boss" of his dynamic all-female stars. Blake has a huge crush on the formidably cool and reserved Zoe, but he can't figure out what her story is, or her sexual orientation. Meanwhile, he keeps snooping around in hopes of getting a handle on the situation, but so far he's still very much in the dark. Jones then is set as Jerry: Late 20s to early 30s. A handsome, cool, African-American ladies' man. He's the show's head hairstylist. In other words, he is the supreme power on the set. Always in the know about everything, he keeps his confidence and gets along with the show's stars - who are well aware that, if they cross Jerry, they will eventually end up looking like Donald Trump. Roman is believed to be playing Zoe: Late 20s to early 30s. The third co-host of "Friends in the Morning". She's an attractive, brilliant, cool and energetic woman who keeps her private life just that - private. A graduate of Harvard University, Zoe specializes in decor and fashion, although she has her sights set on climbing the ladder into hard news. Unflappable, with a dry wit, she lets very little faze her - but even she is shocked to learn that Windsor's apparently perfect marriage is history. Finally, Perkins will play Marion: Early 20s. She's a quintessential California girl who was a lowly weathergirl in a local market until she got a break that landed her on "Friends in the Morning," a popular national show. A bit of a third wheel, Marion is trying hard to fit in. A resounding success with viewers, she's finding it harder to win over her more experienced co-hosts, Windsor [Nancy Travis] and Zoe. Deceptively ditzy, Marion is actually more intelligent than she first appears. She is continually trying to woo Blake, but to no avail. Sweet, sincere and well-meaning, Marion is deeply concerned when she discovers that Windsor's marriage is in trouble, and she's not the kind of woman who can easily disguise her feelings - even on the air. Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Allison Gibson are the executive producers of the project, which comes from Touchstone Television and Coquette Productions.moreless

    Teknoman was an anime series originally created and aired in Japan under the name Tekkaman Blade (translated and transliterated). It concerned a mysterious young man named Slade who had the power to transform into an armored space warrior, helping Earth's forces to fight an alien invasion. He fights alongside the Space Knights, a small paramilitary organization. Aired on Tokyo TV from 1992 to 1993, the series was brought to the United States in 1995 by Haim Saban, who had previously achieved success by importing another Japanese show that was Americanized into the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Of the original 49 Japanese episodes, the first 26 were dubbed and aired on UPN before the show was cancelled. An English-language version aired outside of the US included 46 episodes, some having been combined or eliminated. This show guide reflects Teknoman, the American show, rather than Tekkaman Blade, the original Japanese show. This is due to the vagaries of having to translate Japanese titles, names and dialog as well as the mismatch between the number of English language and Japanese episodes. Data including air dates reflects the UPN broadcasts. Among Teknoman's weapons are the Tekno Lance, Fire Lance, Tekno Rang and Techno Power Blaster.moreless
