What's Brewin' in TV News: 'Rescue Me' Gets Early Season 6 Pick Up and More...

  • "Rescue Me" season 5 doesn't premiere until April 7, but you can bet it's gonna be a good one since FX has already put out an order for 18 episodes of seaon 6.  The show has been on hold since the writer's strike and has been off the air now for over a year.  Also, watch out for the "Rescue Me Comedy Tour" featuring Denis Leary, some of his co-stars and fellow comedians.  source
  • Some more pilots have been picked up in the last few days.  ABC has an untitled project from Jeff Strauss ("All of Us"), CBS grabbed "Good Girls" and NBC got another untitled from Justin Adler ("Samantha Who?"). ABC's show will examine marriage and parenthood through the eyes of 3 couples.  "Good Girls" centers on two women trying to reinvent themselves after making some mistakes.  NBC's project is a "family show with adult siblings."  source
  • E! is working on a new reality project called "Hot Girls in Scary Places".  The show will star three USC cheerleading gal pals who have been asked to spend the night in a supposedly haunted hospital and compete for the cash prize of $10,000.  The show is currently set to premiere on March 13.  source
  • Fancy yourself a real life Chuck Bass or Serena van der Woodsen?  Well you should let Bravo know, they're on the look out for real life "Gossip Girls" for a new reality show that will follow students in some of NYC's exclusive high schools.  Not certain whether or not the show will get the go ahead, since it's kind of a distraction for high school kids and all, but if it does I'll certainly be watching!  source
