Why A Nikita Reboot Can Work

Why bother remaking La Femme Nikita? The 1990 French action film about a criminal-turned-government assassin already has been remade as a U.S. feature film starring Bridget Fonda and as a basic cable TV series starring Peta Wilson.

I've been searching the Net ...

Question: I've been searching the Net to find out what happened to Standoff and I came across your column. I think Rosemarie DeWitt is the star of this show and if Standoff doesn't make it, someone ought to grab her for another part. That girl can act. She has a rare (it seems) talent of acting and reacting in such a natural and convincing way. Ron Livingston is so-so, but he looks better playing off Rosemarie. Answer: Standoff didn't make it. The episodes this summer were burn-offs, and it wasn't renewed. But Rosemarie DeWitt has already bounced back: She's on one of the summer's best series, AMC's Mad Men, playing Midge, the bohemian illustrator who's having an affair with the show's married lead.

Terminator Sequel: Fox Makes Mid-season Noise

With the Fox network, it's often all about the mid-season, the time when shows like American Idol and 24 come along to rescue the network from its fall doldrums. Not that it's impossible for any of Fox's September newcomers to catch on. The Kelsey Grammer/Patricia Heaton sitcom Back to You looks very commercial. The situation is admittedly tougher for the downbeat New Orleans crime drama K-Ville or the murky supernatural crime drama New Amsterdam (about an immortal detective) to buck the odds and be a factor come January. While it's possible one or both may hit its mark, you can't help but feel that they might as well be titled "Placeholder 1" and "Placeholder 2" (shades of last fall's Vanished, Justice and Standoff).Once again, Fox is holding back one of its biggest guns (literally) for January. Easily the most anticipated show on the network's lineup is The Sarah Connor Chronicles (look for the word Terminator to be added to the title before it premieres): a high-octane, big-budge... read more

Mark Your Calendars (Or Not): Standoff, Identity Return

Although originally scheduled to return to the air on Mar. 30, Standoff's comeback has been pushed back to Apr. 6.
