'MIDDLE SCHOOL: THE WORST YEARS OF MY LIFE' TRAILER WITH LAUREN GRAHAM! GORAN VISNJIC IS VILLAIN IN 'TIME' SF SERIES! JONO KENYON TO LEAD ABC'S 'TOAST' HYBRID SITCOM

JONO KENYON TO LEAD
ABC'S 'TOAST' HYBRID SITCOM
With the news that AMC has renewed INTO THE BADLANDS epic series for second season and PBS their civil war saga MERCY STREET for a second run, there is also a piece of TV news coming from ABC that they have cast stunning Jono Kenyon as the lead in their hybrid sitcom TOAST! Coming from Shondaland and Scott Foley, if follows an engaged couple Max Leeds (Kenyon) and Paige, who, over their wedding rehearsal dinner, have their eclectic family and friends give toasts recalling anecdotes about the couple — but flashbacks reveal that the toasts don’t always get it right, as we watch the true story of their complicated, funny and relatable road to marriage. Tessa Ferrer will play Max' closest friend.

GORAN VISNJIC IS VILLAIN
IN 'TIME' SF ADVENTURE SERIES
 In other TV news, NBC's adventure series TIME has just cast Goran Visnjic as the main villain! It follows an unlikely trio (Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett) who travel through time to battle a master criminal (Visnjic) intent on altering the fabric of human history with potentially catastrophic results. Vulnerable, damaged and oddly emotional, Visnjic’s Garcia Flynn is a dangerous man who’s recently stolen a time machine and travelled with his team of soldiers to the hours prior to the Hindenburg’s explosion. Flynn is guided by a strange journal from some other period of time, and while his full plan is still shrouded in mystery, it’s clear that he must be stopped. Don't confuse this one with ABC's TIME AFTER TIME which will have young H.G. Wells chasing Jack the Ripper through time!

Your trailer for today is for the movie adaptation of  James Patterson's MIDDLE SCHOOL: THE WORST YEARS OF MY LIFE with Lauren Graham and Girffin Gluck!

Rafe and his best friend Leo have come up with a plan; break every rule in the school hand book and as you expect trouble follows.

  1. "Toast" could have some potential! Hard to see how the premise could be sustained over a whole season though.

  2. Time sounds interesting - it all depends on how they play it. Hopefully there's some humor and adventure to it, but Goran Visnjic pretty much guarantees I'll give it a shot.

  4. Time is right up my alley as there are so many creative ways to deal the the concept of paradox. I hope it's a good one.

    I'm into the home stretch on the Painting Challenge and my eyes are killing me. So many figures to get in on deadline and all the bases to sculpt. I need a week off!!

  6. I think Allison will love Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life. She's a huge fan of his Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, and I admit, while I didn't read the books, I did giggle through the films.

  8. Middle School looks so cute! And by the way, there are daily news stories here in North Carolina advertising for extras for the remake of Dirty Dancing. They are filming in the western part of the state where some of the original movie was filmed. Thought you would find that interesting.
