Reports on next week's upfronts have spelled mostly good news for shows--such as Friday Night Lights, Medium, and Scrubs--so far, but with old shows getting renewed and new ones getting picked up, someone has to go. Moles inside NBC (who have been very busy and very talkative the past few days) say that The Black Donnel...

Haggis and Moresco talk Black Donnellys

This Monday, NBC sent Studio 60 to bed without dessert and settled down for an evening with The Black Donnellys. The series, set in a fictional New York neighborhood, follows four Irish brothers who become quickly and unwittingly embroiled in Mafia life.

When asked about the kind of preparation needed for such a transformation, Wilde said, "I met with Barbara Moresco, who is Bobby Moresco's wife, before we shot the pilot, and discussed what it was like to grow up as a young woman in this type of neighborhood. I found it fascinating that so many difficult things--so many painful things--had happened in her life, and yet she didn't feel sorry for herself...she was ...
