And now there are five.... UPN and The WB become "The CW"

January 24th

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 here.

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.

High Tide for Aquaman

November 15th

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 AquamanTV.com.
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 announcement.
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 Daily Variety.
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

November 14th

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 endeavors.
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: Fully Loaded."
