But here's a write up from Programming Insider, sent to me from my friend Robyn Snyder who works in TV/Film development...
In my Programming Insider this morning... ;)(How funny is that last sentence, by the way?)
Bo Derek Joins the Cast of MyNetworkTV's Secret
Former '70s sex symbol Bo Derek has joined the cast
of serial Secret Obsessions, which will debut
Sept. 5 at9 p.m. on new platform My NetworkTV.
Derek will play Maria Zianni, a cutthroat fashion mogul
(is there any other type?) who rules the fashion
world and runs her company with an iron fist.
Derek's last regularly scheduled series, drama
Wind on Water, lasted two weeks on NBC in the
fall of 1998.
We have no pics yet, and I haven't met her, but I couldn't be more thrilled...
Onto other news, my friend Mary Martinez sent me this posting about the telenovela craze. This was from the BBC and they mention our shows (pictured here); interesting that it's making news all over.
Then my friend Matt sent me info from this story on IMDB gossip:
