Tonight's episode is an encore of "SLAM." Melinda (Jennifer Love Hewitt) investigates a high school haunting, which involves Delia's (Camryn Manheim) son Ned. This was the show which introduced our new 'Ned' Christoph Sanders who is our new resident teen heart-throb. Because of the terrific response we had to him when he came onto the show we've picked him up to be a regular on the show for next year. Lucky him...and lucky us! We also brought back Omid Abtahi (Sleeper Cell) as Grandview's blogger, Justin Yates, who is trying to find out anything (dirt or otherwise) on Melinda. Incidentally, the writer named Justin after one of the guys we have working in our Digital Media Department, Justin Fisher.
The show also features the hit song "Apologize" by One Republic (Mosley/Interscope). Also be sure to check out a little behind the scenes action at
Well I (Ian) just finished directing next week's original episode "Horror Show" which is undoubtedly the scariest episode we've ever done. The guest star is teenager Leah Pipes (Life is Wild; Clubhouse) and she is amazing. The show pays homage to horror films including Psycho, The Grudge, Blair Witch, Carrie, The Exorcist, Chucky, Puppet Master, The Amityville Horror, I Know What You Did Last Summer (Starring JLH), Nightmare on Elm Street, and Halloween. It's the coolest and most fun show I've ever directed. That show will also be the first of 4 originals in a row leading to the season finale.
John Gray (creator of "Ghost Whisperer") just came into town. He's writing and will direct the season finale, which will be broadcast on May 16th and promises to be another great season ender!
Have a terrific week and be safe.
Kim and Ian
