Some Recent TV Spinoff Successes And Failures

May 12th, 2009 11:29am EDT
Boston Legal
With an eagerly anticipated Gossip Girl spinoff in the offing, as well as a number of other spinoffs and remakes, the 2009-2010 television fall schedule feels awfully familiar. Unfortunately, there's no rhyme or reason as to whether these spinoffs actually fly. For every Frasier, there is a Joey. The winners are shows that garnered critical acclaim and/or cult status. The losers are shows that destroyed the integrity of beloved characters and were generally poorly written and conceived.

'Will & Grace' Stars Set For Spin-Off?

October 4th, 2008 4:36pm EDT
Will & Grace
Former Will & Grace co-stars Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes are set to star in a spin-off of the hit comedy. The pair will reprise their camp double-act in "Karen & Jack," which is currently in development at network NBC.

According to sources, Hayes was keen on a spin-off soon after "Will & Grace" ended in 2006 - but was put off by the failure of Matt LeBlanc's Friends follow-up Joey. Plans were then derailed when Mullally landed a talk show - but that flopped, throwing the pair back together again.

The insider tells the National Enquirer, "They feel there is still a lot of life le...

Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland's hearts skipped a beat while filming Flatliners (1990). Tom Cruise admired a young Aussie actress named Nicole Kidman and had her cast opposite him in Days of Thunder. The movie Seven ended with Gwynet...

Matt LeBlanc
Former Friends star Matt LeBlanc is heading to court after allegedly failing to pay his former business manager $1 million.

Camille Cerio is suing the actor for breach of contract and claims he owes her commission for managing his career. LeBlanc maintains he has paid Cerio more than $200,000 in payments, but in a lawsuit filed at Los Angeles Superior Court earlier this month, Cerio claims the amount is nothing compared to his royalties from Friends and spin-off Joey.

Cerio claims that LeBlanc agreed to cut her 15 per cent from all the pilots, but stopped paying her in 2000. T...
