Fashion-forward or fashion faux pas?
While appearing on The View this past week to promote his new show Resurrection, Omar Epps appeared to be wearing a leather skirt over black jeans.

ABC's Resurrection sees dead people come alive again, but it's not related to The Returned. Except it is.
The drama, which premieres Sunday at 9/8c, is based on Jason Mott's best-selling book The Returned about people who come back from the dead. That's not to be confused with the critically acclaimed, similarly themed French series on Sundance Channel, The Returned, which is based on the French film Les Revenants and is being adapted by Lost's Carlton Cuse for A&E, or the fact that Resurrection refers to its walking dead as The Returned.

"It is kind of confusing, we'll admit that," Resurrection executive producer Michele Fazekas tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "But even though the premise is the same, I think we all have different takes on it and different stories."

ABC's Resurrection is not related to or a rip-off of The Returned, but it is adapted from The Returned. Confused yet?
The midseason drama is based on Jason Motts' book The Returned and follows a dead 8-year-old boy Jacob (Landon Gimenez) who wakes up more than three decades later. Its back-from-the-dead premise is not unlike that of the critically acclaimed French series The Returned, which aired on the Sundance Channel, and the show's executive producers made sure to steer clear of it.

House comes to an end: The cast and producers recall creating a curmudgeon
But the truer message was...
Hugh Laurie, House
Bolstered by American Idol, House quickly became a huge hit. At the end of the third season — which remains the show's highest-rated — the producers blew up the formula and forced House to rebuild his entire diagnostic team. It was the first of many bold (and controversial) storytelling choices. In Part 2 of our oral history, the show's creators and cast look back at the show's most memorable plots. (Read Part 1 here.)
In the Season 3 finale, House...
House, a risky, challenging and altogether different kind of medical drama, premiered on November 16, 2004, and turned the genre on its head with a true antihero lead: a doctor who has overt disdain for his patients — and people in general. But thanks to compelling writing and a career-defining performance by British improv-comedy vet Hugh Laurie, the show stayed on the air for eight seasons of abuse (both drug and verbal) and countless diagnoses that were almost never lupus. As House prepares to sign off for good (Monday, May 21 at 8/7c on Fox), TVGuide.com talked to the show's creators and cast about building the Emmy-winning drama from the ground up. This is the first of a two-part series....
After eight seasons and 177 episodes, House ends with an outbreak of poignant goodbyes. In the emotional run-up to the series finale — the episode, titled "Everybody Dies," airs May 21 at 9pm on Fox — each shooting day brought cheers, standing Os and misty-eyed send-offs. "A succession of daily memorial services, it was," as Hugh Laurie puts it. "Someone would yell, 'Hey, everybody, this is Omar Epps' last scene!' 'This is Jesse Spencer's last scene!' 'This is B camera operator's last scene.' The art director's. The sound technician's. It became hard to process all the finality."
It's amusing to imagine...
Before House ends its eight-season run on the May 21 series finale, the show's cast members want to take the time to thank their fans for the years of support.

"We have shared a connection with a large number of people," star Hugh Laurie says in the exclusive video below. "The things that we like about the show, the audience [members] like about the show. Therefore, I think it's reasonable to assume we probably would like the audience if we met them."
Fellow originating cast member...
After eight seasons and 177 episodes, House star Hugh Laurie can't quite put his finger on which hour he'll remember the most.

"If I had a serviceable memory, I would probably have [a favorite], but I don't," Laurie says in the exclusive video below. (Our diagnosis: He's spent too much time memorizing rare diseases!)
Fortunately, some of Laurie's co-stars haven't suffered as much memory loss....
