Superheroes to the Rescue on PBS

They're all the rage these days — on film, on TV, even on Broadway — but there was a time when America had no superheroes. So, just like with jazz and blue jeans, we had to invent them. The three-hour PBS documentary Superheroes: A Never-Ending Battle (Tuesday, Oct. 15) will track their evolution from the birth of Superman in the Great Depression to the powerhouse dominance of Spider-Man more

Keck's Exclusives First Look: Wonder Woman Meets Two and a Half Men

Who knew Two and a Half Men's Alan (Jon Cryer) was such a Wonder Woman fan? Lynda Carter — who played the superhero on TV from 1975 to 1979 — attends a fund-raiser on the Nov. 7 episode of the CBS comedy, sending Alan into a sex-crazed frenzy. The storyline is based on a chance meeting Cryer had with his real-life teen crush earlier this year at a party hosted by CBS honcho Leslie Moonves, who is close pals with Carter. "I was so transfixed that my wife went over and told her I was a huge fan," says Cryer, who has also been working in Men's writers' room this season. "I, of course, was more tasteful about my obsession than Alan, who has a line, 'I had a poster of her that ended up looking like the bottom of a birdcage.'"

Window washers discover a dead body in an empty office, and the number on his cell phone is that of Detective Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) from the Special Victims Unit. Detectives Green (Jesse L. Martin), Fontana (Dennis Farina) and Benson go to the scene and discover the victim is a con artist named Patrick Sullivan who had been defrauding Social Security and was also involved in several other schemes. A fellow con man (and rap impresario) named David Glass (Daniel Eric Gold) claims he witnessed the murder, except when he was at the scene of the crime, there was all kinds of furniture and activity in the office. He ID's Lorraine Dillon (Lynda Carter) and her daughter, April Troost (Estella Warren), whom Benson has dealt with before, and they are the initial suspects until April’s lawyer delivers a security tape from a bar that shows Sullivan alive two hours after Glass says Sullivan was shot. They search Sullivan's hotel room and realize that the murder Glass saw was a scam (they find fake blood on his shirt). Shortly thereafter Glass is found hanging in his office, an apparent suicide. Borgia (Annie Parisse) gets Benson a warrant to search Dillon's apartment and they find what appears to be the murder weapon. Dillon claims she killed Sullivan in self-defense after finding out he raped April when she was 14. McCoy's (Sam Waterston) not buying it, and he wants to prove that Dillon murdered Sullivan for his share of money in the con job. Dillon gives emotional testimony explaining her side of the story, but McCoy fights back that Dillon, her daughter, and Sullivan, had conspired to extort five hundred thousand dollars from Glass. McCoy asks Borgia to take the lead and she questions April - who turns her mother's story upside down. She says she and Sullivan were consensual lovers and that her mother went berserk when she found out, killed Sullivan and made her lie to cover it up. They question Lorraine again privately and she changes her story again - April killed Sullivan because he molested her, and Lorraine was trying to cover for her daughter. Now they don't know whom to believe, and whoever gets off has a lot of money socked away. They talk to Lorraine's former husband, who says April got pregnant and disappeared, and when they question the cook at the Ashram where she went to have the baby, he tells them that he took her to the hospital, but she had the baby in the car, freaked out and buried it in the woods. When they go back to the area, it is changed and there's no chance of finding the baby. Benson tries to call April's bluff by telling her they discovered the baby's remains with her fingerprints and they would charge her with murder. She suddenly tries for a deal, offering to give up information on her mother. Lorraine will serve time for Sullivan's murder, and April also agrees to jail time, as long as it's shorter than her mother's stay. The detectives, McCoy and Borgia realize they've finally conned the cons. watch

Matt's Picks: Week of June 20-23

This is one of the more jam-packed weeks of a seriously overstuffed TV summer, so let's break it down by night.


COMEBACK: The mercurial and always opinionated Keith Olbermann, most recently ousted from his MSNBC perch, brings his act back to cable with the same title (Countdown) but a new network (Current TV). His eclectic roster of contributors will include documentarian Ken Burns, comedian Richard Lewis and filmmaker Michael Moore. Let the ranting begin.

Wonder Woman Takes Flight at NBC

Looks like Wonder Woman will again fly to the small screen after all: NBC has picked up David E. Kelley's pilot about the DC Comics superheroine, Deadline reports.

The order comes two weeks after networks, including NBC, initially passed on the project. According to Deadline, the Peacock was interested in Wonder Woman two weeks ago, but was forced to turn it down as NBC Universal's merger with Comcast was still in flux. The $13.8 billion deal was approved Tuesday, allowing new Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt to move forward with the pickup.

"I think it is the quality Sandra Bullock has in all her characters that needs to be in Wonder Woman," says Carter. "You identify with pieces of them all. You can't play Wonder Woman ... you have to be a knowable woman."

Lynda Carter Previews Her Wonderful Smallville Visit

Superhero worlds collide tonight when Lynda Carter pays a visit to Smallville (8 pm/ET on the CW). The actress became a worldwide star in 1976 when she was cast as TV's Wonder Woman, and since that show's end she has kept busy with movies-of-the-week, TV guest roles, films and theater work, including a recent run in the London production of Chicago. On Smallville she plays Moira Sullivan, the mysterious mother of Allison Mack's Chloe. Though viewers learned two seasons ago that Moira was in a mental institution, "Obviously it was a much bigger secret than that," says executive producer Al Gough. "Moira is meteor-infected" and has the power to mentally control other so-called "meteor freak read more
