Bo Derek harbors Secret Obsessions

Bo Derek, best known for her role in the feature film 10, has joined the drama series Secret Obsessions, which will air on News Corp.'s new broadcast outlet My Network TV.

The project, previously titled Secrets, goes behind the scenes to focus on the glamorous yet often brutally ruthless fashion industry, centering on a violent corporate takeover of the business' hottest company, Zianni Inc. Derek will portray cutthroat fashion mogul Maria Zianni, who runs the company.

Secret Obsessions, along with another drama, Desire, will be the first programs to air on My Network when it debuts September 5. Each drama features a 65-episode story arc of hour-long episodes airing over the span of 13 weeks.

Derek starred in NBC's short-lived 1998 drama Wind on Water. She also has appeared in such movies as A Change of Seasons, Hot Chocolate, and Tommy Boy.

Indulge your Passions for fashion

Fans of the soap opera Passions will have a chance to walk a mile in the halter top of their favorite character with the launch of a Passions-based clothing line. Crane Couture is inspired by the styles seen on the Passions character Fancy Crane, played by Emily Harper.

NBC suds up with Telemundo's telenovelas

NBC Universal annouced today it has signed a two-year deal with Galan Entertainment to create and broadcast telenovela soap operas in English across its television networks. The Peacock's feathers extend to NBC, CNB, MSNBC, USA, Bravo, and Spanish-language network Telemundo.

In the new deal, Telemundo--the world's second-largest Spanish-language broadcaster--will license content to Galan Entertainment to redevelop into English. Galan and NBC will then make an English-language version of the preexisting Spanish-language telenovela.

"This represents a fantastic opportunity to achieve many of our goals at NBCU," said Jeff Zucker, Chief Executive Officer, NBC Universal Television Group. "With this, we can better integrate our English- and Spanish-speaking audiences in a way that no other broadcaster can do. It shows the tremendous promise we first saw when we brought Telemundo into the NBC family."

Galan Entertainment is headed ...

Passions was a decade long soap opera created by James E. Reilly, the same man who pulled Days of our Lives out of a ratings slump in the 1990s. Centered around the inhabitants of Harmony, a small seaside town in Maine, Passions excels at creating romantic triangles on the show, and controversy in the fans off the show. The show is based around five core families: the Standish/Bennett clan, the Winthrop/Crane clan, the Lopez/Fitzgerald clan, and the Johnson/Russell clan. Every other character can be directly (and romantically) connected to someone in one of the other clans.

Passions premiered on July 5, 1999, and last aired on NBC on September 7, 2007, before being picked up to air on DirecTV starting September 17, 2007. DirecTV canceled the show at the beginning of 2008, and the final episode aired August 7, 2008.moreless
