Starpulse's 2008-09 TV Pilot Forecast

Dollhouse star Eliza Dushku
The time and financial constraints of the writers' strike are being felt this TV pilot season. The broadcast networks are developing half the number of pilots they usually do, ordering presentations in lieu of pilots for some and giving others the straight to series order.

Aside from NBC, which announced its schedule ahead of the pack last week, the networks have kept their plans for fall shrouded in mystery. We'll learn more during the networks' May upfronts. While we can't make any guarantees about which series will get the vote of confidence, here are some promising players to keep...

We Can't Wait For New Episodes Of. . .

March 6th, 2008 11:49am EST
For three months we labored through a very dry TV landscape full of reruns and retro-nostalgic reality shows, but it's true what they say. Time, or in this case, the strike, does make the heart grow fonder. We're giddy with anticipation for our favorite shows to come back with new episodes. Here's a peek at what has so excited for spring and why.

Last we saw of Gossip Girl, things had changed quite dramatically for many of the characters. Nate and Blair broke up after the truth about Chuck and Blair came out. Serena and Dan exchanged "I love yous." And perhaps most importantly, Jenny H...

TV Spotlight: 'Brothers & Sisters' Producer Greg Berlanti

February 29th, 2008 1:00pm EST
Brothers & Sisters
Dick Wolf, David E. Kelley, Shonda Rhimes and Joss Whedon have all done it. You may be wondering what IT is exactly. They've all at some time point created a spin-off or expanded their TV show into a franchise (see Law & Order). They've all done crossovers between their shows, if you count the backdoor Private Practice pilot on Grey's Anatomy last season.

But those crossovers would not have been possible if they didn't all share one common trait: all of them are showrunners who have, in recent memory, shepherded multiple television shows, sometimes across different channels.

Heartbreak inspired pop star Mandy Moore as she sat down to write songs for her new album, Wild Hope - she had just split from actor boyfriend Zack Braff. The break-up was the latest in a line of celebrity romances gone wrong for the pretty singer, and she found writing about it a real tonic.

In a posting on his MySpace online blog, Braff writes, "I'm not sure when or why the tabloid angle on me was decided that I am a cad. I would have much rather it had been that I am secretly a dentist or that I love soup. I am in fact, merely doing what every other sin...

He says, "The only thing I found very difficult was I never really held a baby before, and I didn't know how to do it.

Movie Review: 'The Ex' Is A Flat, Desperate Comedy

May 10th, 2007 3:04pm EDT
The Ex
The Ex isn't so much a movie with a plot as it is a filmed series of situations in which Zach Braff a) injures himself, b) humiliates himself, or c) both.

Borrowing early and often from Meet the Parents and You, Me & Dupree, this desperate comedy finds Braff starring as bumbling straight man Tom (sorta like his role on Scrubs), who always manages to say and do the most painfully awkward things around his wacky in-laws and co-workers, people with whom he's never in sync.

Most of these moments involve Chip (Jason Bateman), the chipper high school boyfriend of his wife, Sofia (Amand...

Zach Braff was stunned when he saw the poster for his latest film The Ex - because he looks Latin. The Jewish actor, 32, believes movie bosses have digitally altered his skin to look darker than it really is on the film's advertising.

He writes on his MySpace page, "I don't know why they made me so tan on the poster for The Ex. When I first saw it I thought it might be the South American poster, since we all looked a smidgen Latin. Or… as Latin as I'm ever gonna look."

Does Zach Braff Have A Big Ego?

Zach Braff
Insiders says bumbling Scrubs star Zach Braff has let the popularity of his hit show go straight to his head, according to Star magazine. “Zach used to be the most humble, unassuming guy,” a source close to him explains.

But when "Scrubs" got more popular, Zach, 31, reportedly got a hefty raise (to $350,000 per episode) and dated a few Hollywood stars- so his “ego has gotten really bloated,” the source says.

“It’s most obvious in his approach to women. He now waltzes into the hip nightclubs and immediately sets his sights on the most beautiful women. Zach is a great guy under...
