A funny thing happened on the way to Room 5AB at Comic-Con this afternoon. Or rather, in Room 5AB. During EW’s Totally Lost: One Year Later panel, Lost exec producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse crashed the festivities in fitting Comic-Con style. (Cuse dressed as a stormtrooper; Lindelof was clad in a Dharma jumpsuit and Boba Fett helmet). Not only did they field all sorts of questions from fans, they unveiled a scene from the season 1 finale that supposedly never aired. Yes, the very one hinted at during their cryptic Twitter “feud,” which was resolved at the panel. READ FULL STORY

Snow White. Prince Charming. Rumpelstiltskin. What if they weren’t just characters inhabiting the well-worn pages of a children’s fairy tale book, but had been ripped out of the Enchanted Forest by the Evil Queen and sent to present-day, small-town Maine, where they were living as ordinary folks, sadly unaware of their real identities? Hey, it could happen! And it totally does in Once Upon a Time, an ambitious fantasy family drama debuting on ABC in October. In this new trailer, the Queen (Lana Parrilla) wedding-crashes the nuptials of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Joshua Dallas), vowing darkly: “I shall destroy your happiness if it’s the last thing I do!” (If only Trina Decker were still around to slip something in her drink to mellow her out.) You will also meet a rather chilling Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle), who foretells of eternity-suffering doom-‘n’- gloom unless Snow White and Prince Charming’s daughter, Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison), can somehow save the day, which probably should involve getting ‘Stilt a spa day.
Is your interest piqued yet? Take note of the five words that attack the screen toward the end of the trailer, one-by-one: FROM. THE. WRITERS. OF. LOST. READ FULL STORY
As if Alcatraz didn’t have enough of a Lost pedigree, the Fox show has tapped Jack Bender to join the show as executive producer and director. Bender directed many of the biggest episodes of Lost — 36 of them, according to IMDb, including the finale. He rejoins former Lost producers J.J. Abrams, Elizabeth Sarnoff and Bryan Burk on the show which, as you recall, co-stars Jorge Garcia (a.k.a. Hurley). But can the show reproduce the success of the ABC hit? The pilot — about former inmates who disappeared 50 years ago coming back into modern day San Francisco and committing crimes — feels closer to the first episode of Fringe than that other island adventure.
Slap on some goggles and peer out cautiously from behind the corner: It’s almost time for Paintball: The Sequel! A year after Community’s splendid splatterfest “Modern Warfare,” the NBC comedy aims to outdo itself with a two-part season finale (airing May 5 and 12). The first half, titled “A Fist Full of Paintballs,” features a special guest star, Lost’s Josh Holloway, who plays a “mysterious, serious” paintball player named Black Rider. Holloway and series creator Dan Harmon spoke with EW about the big game. READ FULL STORY
Been a bit slow lately aside from the Mad Men drama. So in honor of April Fools Day, below is our prayer to the TV gods: A dirty dozen of online traffic-boosting headlines we’d like to see:
– Lost prequel announced: Peninsula-set reboot to explain everything
– NBC reveals shocking new The Office boss: Dave Chappelle!
– Fox: “We screwed up, let’s bring back Firefly“
– The Glee and Grey’s Anatomy crossover wedding: Yes, it’s happening! READ FULL STORY
Former Lost showrunner Damon Lindelof seemingly has weighed in on AMC’s Mad Men mess.
Apparently responding to reports that Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner is being offered a whopping $30 million to write the show for a three-year deal, Lindelof tweeted: “Not that I’m sour grapes, but TEN MILLION DOLLARS a year for 13 episodes of a single show seems pretty fair, no? #SOURGRAPES.”
Also, one report said that Weiner was being asked to cut not two series regulars, as has been previously reported, but rather two a year for three years. Nobody’s touching that one, but having to cut six characters seems rather extreme (and creatively ridiculous — what a way to zap a show of its narrative believability than to have to eliminate a certain number of characters each season like it’s a reality show).
Meanwhile sources say that a potential deal for a three-year renewal with Weiner on board could be only a few hours away… or maybe only a day… or, well, maybe more than that.
Forbes has tallied its annual list of the biggest TV moneymakers and, no surprise, Fox’s American Idol led the list for 2010.
Idol delivered $7.11 million every half hour last year (wow, even the padded results shows?), which was down 12 percent from 2009.
That was followed by CBS’ Two and a Half Men, with $2.89 million per half hour (which gives you an idea why few think the show is going away despite Charlie Sheen exiting). In fact, showrunner Chuck Lorre has three shows in the Top 10.
In third was another series going through some cast issues, ABC’s Desperate Housewives with $2.74 million, which has some actors in contract negotiations. Here’s the Top 10 from last year: READ FULL STORY
Another Lost veteran has washed ashore onto the cast of a fall pilot: Terry O’Quinn has joined ABC’s drama Hallelujah from Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry.
The drama is set in small town being torn apart by the forces of good and evil. The town’s fortunes change when a mysterious stranger comes to town, bringing justice, peace and possibly restoring faith. The show is billed as “a drama with musical elements” and, yes, John Locke does sing.
O’Quinn joins fellow Lost boys Michael Emerson (CBS’ Person of Interest) and Jorge Garcia (Fox’s Alcatraz) on shows in contention for a fall season slot.
