Tag: Make It or Break It (1-8 of 8)
The current season of ABC’s Make It or Break It will be the show’s last.
EW has confirmed ABC Family is pulling the plug on the teen drama, which closes out its season (and now the series) on May 14.
The news comes after the departure of a few fan favorites. At end of last season, the series bid farewell to Chelsea Hobbs, whose character was the focus of the show, and lost Josh Bowman to Revenge. Neil Jackson’s Sasha, the team’s coach, has also been largely absent from the current season.
It’s been pretty quiet around the Rock while Make It or Break It has been off the air for almost a year. So with just hours until our favorite melodramatic teen gymnasts grace our screens again, we couldn’t wait to talk about the new season with executive producer Holly Sorensen.
First thing’s first, if you haven’t been properly introduced to MIOBI, tonight’s episode is your chance to become part of the Rock girls fan club. “The premiere episode plays like a series premiere, not just a season premiere,” she says. “It completely stands alone. If you’ve never watched the show before, this is the year that you could absolutely pick it up and watch it.”
But if you’ve been a supporter from the days when Kaylie was just a spoiled daddy’s girl and Summer was merely that crossover actress from Full House, it might be time to reboot your MIOBI knowledge because there’s no recap montage in the first episode. READ FULL STORY »
It’s a busy week at ABC Family.
Following yesterday’s cancellation of The Nine Lives of Chloe King, the teen net announced today it has picked up four new series, one of which comes from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino. The network also renewed gymnastics-centered drama Make It or Break It for a third season and ordered an additional 10 episodes of The Lying Game.
Sherman-Palladino’s project, titled Bunheads, is a one-hour drama that follows a Las Vegas showgirl who married a man and moves to a small coastal town to teach at his mother’s dance school. The other drama picked up, Intercept, is about a group of crime-solving college students and comes from The Crazies writer Ray Wright.
The network also picked up two comedy pilots, Baby Daddy (relatively self-explanatory) and Village People (surprisingly not self-explanatory). The latter centers on a career-minded single woman who adopts a baby from a teen mom (no, not one of these) and ends up caring for the young mother as well.
Below is what I’ve dug up this week, but remember that I use your inquiries as a guide. Let me know what shows you want to know about! And you can do so (as always) in two ways: via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and via Twitter @EWSandraG.
FRINGE: EPS TEASE TRIPPIEST EPISODE SINCE ‘BROWN BETTY’
Full disclosure: I was originally going to preview tonight’s episode of Fringe for you, but honestly, I’m in such a pleasant mood over the renewal that I say we move on to bigger matters, like episode 19, airing April 15.
Before the big news, Jeff Pinkner and Joel H. Wyman hopped on the phone with me to tease an episode I’ve been dying to know more about ever since I heard a rumor that it would be Astrid-centered, which, it turns out, isn’t entirely the case. Oh, I’ll just let them explain. READ FULL STORY »
