Shonda Rhimes, Dan Harmon
After TV Guide Magazine and a handful of other outlets broke the news that Community creator Dan Harmon had been replaced as showrunner, the fan response was fast — and furious.
When Kevin Bacon signed on last month to play a serial killer in the new Fox pilot from The Vampire Diaries producer Kevin Williamson, there was a catch: Bacon would only commit to star in 15 episodes a year. Eager to make Bacon sizzle in primetime, the network agreed.
Fox execs view the Bacon drama, should it go to series, as an opportunity to start airing more cable-like short-order TV series. ABC struck a similar deal this past year with Missing star Ashley Judd in order to accommodate her schedule. Only ten episodes of Missing were shot this year, and even in success, that number will never be more than 13.
Once Upon a Time
From Lost to Once Upon a Time, executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis sure know how to create an entangled mystery that will keep audiences scratching their heads.
The duo began the groundwork for Once eight years ago, but it took working on Lost to really hone their idea. "We were really young and we didn't understand how to execute the idea we had. We called it our eight-year writer's block," Kitsis says with a laugh.

The result? A series in which...
J.J. Abrams will direct the sequel to his 2009 film Star Trek, Vulture reports.
Star Trek 2 will bring back Chris Pine as Capt. Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock. Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will write the screenplay with Damon Lindelof producing. The film was slated for a June 2012 release, but will likely be pushed back.
Damon Lindelof, Ginnifer Goodwin
Executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz wrote the first draft of the upcoming fairy-tale drama Once Upon a Time eight years ago, but it didn't go anywhere. It wasn't until they found work as writers on Lost and a mentor in series mastermind Damon Lindelof that they resurrected the idea for a show blending the worlds of fairy-tale characters with the everyday.
Don't believe that Lost executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse had a mapped-out plan for the ABC series all along? Well, the two surprised fans at Entertainment Weekly's "Totally Lost: One Year Later Panel" to prove they did.

The networks are still holding out for a superhero. While comic-book films Thor, X-Men: First Class and Green Lantern all hit No. 1 at the box office recently (with mixed staying power), TV has been slower to cultivate a new generation of caped crusaders.
But have no fear, citizens of TV land: Help is on the way. Super-heroes play a role in...
