Spiritual forces both real and imagined govern the lives of Oscar and Lara. Oscar is a small time tour guide obsessed with the macabre, poaching guests from the bigger players at the airport and bringing them to the elaborate haunted house he has created in the basement of their family home. But Lara? Lara is a true believer, a woman gifted with a second sight that allows her to speak with the dead and host s ances for a small but fervent local community who wish to communicate with the recently deceased, with those who have passed to Summerland. Their home life is odd but good on the whole. Good, that is, until outside pressures begin to wear the family down. Their teenage daughter takes up with a new boyfriend, a militant anarchist who runs a website devoted to debunking all things spiritual. Lara is an obvious target. And Oscar? Well, Oscar has plenty of passion but very little financial sense and the business is failing utterly. If he doesn t come up with some quick cash, the entire family will be out on the street. Financial salvation comes in the form of a foreign art collector who wants to buy the Elf Stone in the family s back yard, the same stone that Lara believes supplies her powers. Will the cure for Oscar s financial woes be worse than the disease? Internationally known for directing dark thrillers JAR CITY and A LITTLE TRIP TO HEAVEN, Iceland s Baltasar Kormakur steps into the producer s role for SUMMERLAND. A fable about family and the magic of the everyday, SUMMERLAND draws on Icelandic myth and folklore to create a totally unique family drama.

I'm not even going to attempt ...

Question: I'm not even going to attempt to argue with Julie H.'s recent statement that drugs, alcohol and sex play a part in most high school experiences, considering that none of those things had to do with mine (and I'm 23), but I do want to address the somewhat roller-coaster trend of these teen dramas. I personally loved The O.C., so when I heard about Gossip Girl, I thought it would be a comparable replacement. When I watched the premiere, I (and after reading reviews, it seems that I am the only one) was severely disappointed. It was boring, predictable, at times unbelievable and insulting. After a benchmark-in-the-teen-drama-sector show like The O.C., and after failed attempt after failed attempt at remaking it (Life As We Know It, Summerland, Hidden Palms), what can these shows do to surprise us? I realize that a show about a bunch of poor kids with parents who love them would probably not even show at upfronts, but can't we move in that "normal" direction? Answer: Stephanie, do I ... read more

As a fan of Beautiful People ...

Question: As a fan of Beautiful People and seeing how short this last season was, I was wondering if you knew if there would be another season and if we will have to wait until after the summer. I see a new summer show, Falcon Beach, is being advertised (maybe like Summerland?) and figured maybe this was going to take Beautiful People's spot for the summer. Just wondering if you knew anything. Answer: It's way too early to know about People's renewal (probably no word until midsummer, which means no new episodes for a while if ever), but consider Falcon Beach for your new guilty pleasure, if you're into that sort of thing. It will be filling the slot where People previously aired ... read more

Cheryl Ladd: From Angel to... Grandma?

Cheryl Ladd, grandmother? Have we come to that point? Sort of, but not really. In the Hallmark Channel presentation Though None Go with Me (premiering Saturday at 9 pm/ET), Charlie's onetime Angel disappears behind old-age makeup to play Elizabeth Leroy Bishop, a woman who relates stories from her colorful and oft-times turbulent life — Amy Grabow plays Elizabeth as a young woman — to a grandchild. As anyone who has seen Ladd on Las Vegas knows, it must have taken a lot of powder to make this heavenly beauty look anything but robust. TVGuide.com: Look at you, playing grandma to some twentysomething girl!Cheryl Ladd: [Laughs] Yep! read more
