Keck's Exclusives: Falcon Crest Stars Approached For Possible Reboot

Following TNT's successful Dallas relaunch, stars of the 1981-1990 CBS primetime soap Falcon Crest have been approached by one of the original show's writers about their interest in appearing in a reboot.

"There's not much I can say, for reasons that go beyond myself," original star William Moses said at the premiere of War Horse at Los Angeles' Pantages Theatre. "Warner Bros. owns the rights and so it's a discussion between them and the writers. There is a pitch and an idea germinating that has some traction. The producers contacted me to ask if I'd be interested, and I said yes. Where it goes on the producing side, I don't know."

Star Wars Actor Richard LeParmentier Dies

Star Wars actor Richard LeParmentier has passed away. He was 66.

LeParmentier is best known for his role in 1977's Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, in which he played Darth Vader's cohort Admiral Conan Antonio Motti. Darth, using the "force," memorably strangled Motti, who was the Death Star commander, for disloyalty. Star Wars fans have long been fond of his short but memorable role.

The Tuesday Playlist: Finales, a Salute to Primetime Soaps, White Collar, The Taste

It's another ridiculously busy night of TV, with premieres and finales jousting for attention amid other distractions. It's just as well that CBS' top-rated lineup is taking a breather with repeats.

First, the farewells, going head to head. Once again, NBC sends away its reliably tear-jerking Parenthood (10/9c) earlier in the TV year than we'd like, but a limited run of 15 episodes beats the alternative. Shows like this don't tend to repeat well, and if a shorter run makes business sense — while freeing up the time period in the back half of the season for something else (in this case, a retooled Smash in two weeks) — then so be it. This fourth season has been Parenthood's strongest and most emotionally charged to date, especially in the storyline involving Kristina's breast cancer ordeal, providing Monica Potter and Peter Krause (as husband Adam) with their strongest dramatic material to date. Emmy voters, wake up and take note.

Premise: Power, passion and money drive this long-running serialized saga set in California's wine region. The main drama centers on the Machiavellian efforts of ironfisted matriarch Angela Channing to retain control of the family-run empire. As the show faded during its later years, the stories shifted (none too convincingly) to crime and a shadowy underworld group called `The Thirteen.' A number of movie divas had short stints on the series, including Lana Turner, Kim Novak and Gina Lollobrigida.
