"Hidden Palms" Not So Hidden at CW

Those titular palms just got a lot less hidden.

The CW's freshman drama Hidden Palms, created by Kevin Williamson of Dawson's Creek and Scream fame, will finally launch on May 30th at 8 pm, taking over America's Next Top Model timeslot.

The eight-episode series, which stars The O.C.'s Taylor Handley (yes, creepy Oliver!) and Michael Cassidy, Amber Heard, Gail O'Grady, D.W. Moffett, Ellary Porterfield, Tessa Thompson, Sharon Lawrence, and Leslie Jordan (a.k.a. Will & Grace's Beverly Lesley), can best be described as The O.C. meets Desperate Housewives.

A newly scruffy Johnny Miller (Handley)--recovering from alcoholism as well as the suicide of his father--moves with his mom and her new hubby to Palm Springs, where he encounters the enigmatic Greta (Heard), rival Cliff (Cassidy), and a mystery involving Eddie, the former resident of his bedroom. (A review of the original pilot can be found here.)

For those of you looking for a steamy summertime's worth of sex, mystery, and assorted other vices, look no further than Hidden Palms.

I've seen the first couple of eps and it's pretty fun. It should definitely fill the void for any "O.C." fans who are looking for a summer soap.

I'm looking forward to this show and I'm glad they put it off until May. I'll be bored with reruns by then and ready for something new.

I'm confused on the "mystery" here, it's not a supernatural based series is it, more of a murder mystery, mystery?

I can not wait for Hidden Palms to air. I liked the pilot, and from what I've seen and heard, the show is only going to get better.

While you're waiting for Hidden Palms to premiere, why not visit Hidden Palms Resort at and stop by the message board at!

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.


Back in 2006, I founded a television blog called Televisionary (the very one you're reading now).  At the time, it was a little side-project that I stared while working in television development: something to do during the off-hours or (my infrequent) down-time or at my desk during my lunch breaks.  Over the next few years, Televisionary morphed into a full-time job as I watched almost everything on television and cataloged my thoughts, penning reviews, conducting interviews with talent, breaking news, and aggregating the day’s entertainment news headlines and major listings every morning. It got noticed by Entertainment Weekly and The New York Times , The Chicago Tribune and CNN, Deadline and Variety . Televisionary took on a life of its own. It became discussed in Hollywood and I was always surprised to discover that actors or producers or executives who read my TV blog. It was a secret at first, one that I eventually shared with a few friends before spreading outwards, thanks
