And now there are five.... UPN and The WB
become "The CW"
In a big surprise announcement made today, The WB and UPN will fold
and be combined into The CW network. Warner Bros, CBS and Tribune
Broadcasting will combine thieir resources to make a new fifth
network out of the the two networks that have been struggling. In
the press release, Smallville, Supernatural and Veronica Mars were
all mentioned as "assets" for the new network. The official press
release can be found
At least initially they will use the WB programming model with two
hours Mon-Fri and three prime time hours on Sunday. Some things I
see that would affect genre TV in particular: there will now be ten
fewer hours of national prime-time for broadcast TV, which means
fewer time slots available for taking risks with a new show,
especially one with a more niche audience. For example, obviously
they want to keep Smallville on more, but will they want to add the
Aquaman show with fewer slots available? This also may lead them to
splitting time periods and having fewer repeats.
The UPN and WB affiliates that are left in the cold now have 10-13
hours of prime time to fill without a network to support them. This
may lead to a slight resurgence in syndicated dramas (or prime time
airings of what normally airs in the fringe hours). In any case, the
trades and entertainment sites will be doing a lot of analysis on
this in the coming months.

Clark, he was already 24.

High Tide for Aquaman
Actors with "incredible swimmer's bodies" are encouraged to apply. So
goes a current casting notice for a possible WB series about
underwater overachiever Aquaman, according to the fansite
Ideally, the future Arthur Curry--that's Aquaman's alter ego--also
should be between "18-24 years old, [have] blond or light brown hair
[and, of course, be] drop-dead handsome," the site said, quoting the
As indicated by casting notices and fansites, if not Entourage
storylines, Aquaman is a superhero in play.
The Hollywood trade papers boosted the buzz Monday with confirmation
that an Aquaman pilot will be shot next year in Florida, where the
potential series would be set.
Smallville's Alfred Gough and Miles Millar will executive produce.
Like their current WB series, the duo's Aquaman pilot will not be
rife with capes, tights and codpiece accoutrements. Rather, the show
will be a "grounded version of the Aquaman mythology," Gough told
Aquaman debuted in DC Comics in 1941--the adopted son (in some
versions of the origin) of a lighthouse keeper who grows to learn
his birthright lies in the submerged island of Atlantis. Befitting
his name, Aquaman is at his best in the water, where he
telepathically talks to fish, plays mind games with whales and
spends time with a young charge called Aqualad.
Since the WB's Aquaman will be a young man himself, there will be no
immediate need for an Aqualad. There also will be no need, possibly
ever, for the name Aquaman. The pilot will not be called Aquaman,
Gough told Variety, and the moniker will not be mentioned. In that
way, Arthur Curry (not Aquaman) will be very much in the mold of
Smallville's Clark Kent (not Superman).
Someone that the new Arthur Curry won't be like is the old Arthur
Curry as featured in the Oct. 20 episode of Smallville, "Aqua."
Gough called that take on the character--identified as a "mysterious
swimmer" by the network--"our out-of-town trial version." Since the
new series isn't being spun as a spin-off of that adventure, Alan
Ritchson, the actor who portrayed Arthur Curry, or A.C., for short,
in Smallville, isn't being considered for the series.
For Vince Chase, who nearly walked on an Aquaman feature film
despite the appeals of director James Cameron, the lure of a $2
million payday and the promise of an all-new supersuit (no more
green-and-orange body stocking), also isn't likely to get a call.
That, however, is because Vince Chase doesn't exist-- Adrian Grenier
only plays him on TV. With Grenier's movie-star character committing
to star in Aquaman in September's second-season finale of Entourage,
the HBO show's third season is expected to revolve around the
makings of the superhero adventure.
In a non-coincidence, HBO, the WB and DC Comics are all properties
of media giant Time Warner. Prior to his corporate-synergy-aided
career boost, Aquaman arguably was best known to the general public
for his work in the 1973-77 cartoon series Super Friends, costarring
Superman, Batman, Robin and Wonder Woman.
Aquaman pilot swims to the WB Network
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Aquaman will soon join Superman on
the WB Network, courtesy of the producers of "Smallville," the cult
favorite about the early years of the Man of Steel.
The new project is envisioned as a contemporary reinterpretation of
the DC Comics character who lives in the deep sea and enlists sharks
and other oceanic creatures to help him in his crime-fighting
The new-model Aquaman will be a man in his early twenties. As is the
case on "Smallville," which tells the story of Clark Kent's teenage
years and his coming-of-age as Superman, there won't be any presto-chango
into costumes or other superhero accessories when his superpowers
are invoked, a WB Network spokesman said.
The October 20 episode of "Smallville," titled "Aqua," featured the
Kent character encountering a mysterious young swimmer and do-gooder
dubbed "A.C.," played by Alan Ritchson.
The WB spokesman said that episode, which ranked as "Smallville's"
most-watched of the season with nearly 6.5 million viewers, was not
meant to be a template for the "Aquaman" project and that
"Smallville" executive producers Miles Millar and Alfred Gough would
search for a new actor for the lead role. The "Aquaman" pilot
tentatively is set to shoot early next year in Florida.
According to the Aquaman lore, the character is the exiled king of
the lost underwater civilization of Atlantis. The former Prince Orin
was abandoned as a child, raised by dolphins and later adopted by a
lighthouse keeper named Arthur Curry.
Aquaman made his first appearance in a DC Comics publication in 1941
and remains an active comic book franchise for the Warner
Bros.-owned publishing outfit.
Millar and Gough have joined the top ranks of drama show runners
after being at the helm of "Smallville" since its debut in 2001. On
the feature side, the duo helped craft the screenplays for 2004's
"Spider-Man 2," 2003's "Shanghai Knights" and this summer's "Herbie:
