Filming on 24 Movie Postponed Until 2013

Kiefer Sutherland as Jack BauerThe big-screen adaptation of 24 has been postponed.

Kiefer Sutherland had previously insisted the movie version of the TV series - in which he plays government agent Jack Bauer - would begin shooting this year but his commitments to new show Touch and budget concerns have pushed filming back to 2013, according to Deadline.

"We're still working on a script, and hope to make (it) when Kiefer next has time. But this all came down to timing, and seven weeks is not enough time to prep a movie like this," a spokesperson from 20th Century Fox said.

The movie - set to be part of a trilogy - was originally scheduled to begin shooting this month with Kiefer coming on board in April during the hiatus for Touch, but executives are worried about the short period of time before the TV show stars filming season two and disagreements with filmmakers over the budget. It is thought that the studio Fox had planned a budget of $30 million, while the filmmakers wanted $45 million to $60 million to create the movie they envisaged.

Ugly Betty Replaces Motherhood, Samantha Early

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, ABC,

Ugly Betty

UPDATE: Samantha Who? and In the Motherhood are officially over for the season. A Grey’s repeat will fill the 8:00 time slot this week.

Weeks after being displaced from its time slot, Ugly Betty is coming back to take its place. Early.

Hello, May sweeps!

ABC has just announced that the series will pick up where it left off beginning April 30. That’s one week before it was previously slated to return. It’s also the date Samantha Who? and had been scheduled to air their finales.

So what does this mean for the pair of comedies? Maybe the network can find some more space on its Saturday night calendar?


Samantha Who Displaces Ugly Betty

Samantha Who

There’s nothing like a single dad to get things all messed up.

After delaying Samantha Who‘s January return for several weeks (expanded versions of The Bachelor have been doing quite well), ABC has decided to scratch their original midseason plans and start anew. Instead of putting Christina Applegate on hold, they have chosen to give America Ferrera a short vacation.

MONDAY (9/15)
  • Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 8pm): “John’s schoolwork suffers, but his social circle widens when he makes a new friend.” Uhh, what exactly does he need to learn? He already knows that he’s in charge of saving the world.
  • Prison Break (FOX, 9pm):  “Michael and Linc happen upon T-Bag by chance.” Seriously, by chance? That’s like saying I just stopped watching this show…by chance.
  • I Want to Work for Diddy (VH1, 9pm):  “The teams must each throw a party that meets the high standards of a Diddy event, attending to such details as theme, decor, signature cocktails and guest list.” How would they know how to throw a Diddy event if they’ve never been invited to a Diddy event?
  • Luke’s Parental Advisory (VH1, 10:30pm):  “Luke tells Lacresha and Luther Jr. that they have a 2-year-old half brother. Later, he tries to bond with the child during a weekend visit.” What would we do without television cameras to record special family moments like these?

Let the Arguments Begin: Debate Schedule Released

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Prime Time, Reality, Specials, CBS, PBS, Features,

John McCain and Barack Obama

Both sides have met, looked over their schedules, and finally come to a conclusion. That’s right, America’s two greatest political parties have at long last worked together to reach a decision: after weeks and weeks, they’ve finally agreed to a schedule for the Presidential and Vice Presidential debates.

The interrogation begins in September. The 26th of the month, to be precise, the first Presidential debate will take place in Oxford, Mississippi at the University of Mississippi. You can view the arguments on PBS, as the event will be moderated by Jim Lehrer (The NewsHour). The time is scheduled for talk on foreign policy and national security, i.e. the war in Iraq.

October 2 will see the Vice Presidential debates, which I fully expect will score record this year. This takes place in St. Louis, Missouri at Washington University and can also be viewed on PBS. The moderator is Gwen Ifill, also of The NewsHour.

Writers Strike: Changes For ‘24’ and ‘Prison Break’

Prison Break The will obviously be doing a number to all the network schedules.  Here are two big highlights announced today by FOX:

Not wanting to interrupt only halfway through its day, the execs have decided to delay its premiere altogether.  Season 7 had been scheduled to start Jan. 13/14; now the debut is on indefinite hold.  If nothing else, maybe this will allow to serve his entire jail sentence all at once.

Speaking of jail, the boys at will now be returning to the airwaves sooner than expected.  The show was originally slated to end its fall run on Dec. 17th and return April 14th; it will now start its Christmas break after Nov. 12’s episode then return on Jan. 14th.
