Mandy Moore says she is considering a major change.
The actress recently told People she's been thinking about getting a drastic hairstyle makeover. "I've always wanted to really cut my hair, like, super, super short. I did once," Moore said. "I've always thought about shaving my head too. That's always intrigued me."
Imagine a world in which the NFL, the NBA and Major League Baseball all decided to move their seasons to the same time of year. It would be chaos, for fans and the professional sports business alike. And yet, in television, that's essentially what happens during pilot season.
The broadcast networks traditionally order pilots during the first few months of the year. From there, it's a race to find the best actors, hire a crew, build sets and produce a show before May, when the upcoming fall schedules are announced. The field has always been crowded, but this spring, several cable networks and online retailer-turned-programmer Amazon are also developing new shows that they hope will go to series (cable networks typically produce pilots throughout the year, usually avoiding the spring).
Mandy Moore may find her way to TV this fall after all.
Moore, who was previously attached to ABC's Pulling, has landed the leading role opposite Benjamin McKenzie in CBS' The Advocates, TVGuide.com has learned.
