I have gotten a plethora of cool press releases have been flooding my inbox recently that you may find interesting. This post will include blurbs on Stargate Universe, Merlin, The Philanthropist, Tracy Ullman’s State of the Union, Locked Up Abroad, Stories from the Vault, and Soul of a People: Writing America’s Story.
- The latest Stargate staring I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’s Lou Diamond Philips is hitting
- Coming this Sunday at 8:00 is the premiere of Merlin on NBC. Here is a preview:
- Also debuting next week on NBC is The Philanthropist Wednesday at 10:00. It looks interesting but I am not sure I can watch it because I have seen the lead completely naked, and as How I Met Your Mother showed me this season, once you seen a dude in all his glory, you can really look at him in anything again. And for all the ladies out there wondering, pick up the HBO series Rome. Actually everyone should pick up the show, because the full frontal male nudity aside, if I were to make a list of the best shows of the ’00, Rome would most likely crack the top ten. But anyways. Here is a preview of The Philanthropist:
- A new season of Locked Up Abroad is coming to the National Geographic Channel July 15. This season the show will feature people stuck in Iraq, Barbados, Ecuador, Sierra Leone, Jamaica, and India.
- Nurse Jackie isn’t the only show Showtime is renewing these days; Tracy Ullman’s State of the Union is getting a third season. Seven new episodes should hit the channel early 2010. Also Penn and Teller’s that will go unnamed will become Showtime’s longest running series returning for its seventh season Thursday June 25 at 10:00.
- Still not sure if I have the Smithsonian Channel, but I may want hunt it down by July 12 because that is the new season Stories from the Vault premieres which it hosted by Tom Cavanagh (Ed). Also coming to the Smithsonian Channel September 4 (Labor Day) is a two part documentary that tells the story of the Federal Writer’s Project of the 1930’s called Soul of a People: Writing America’s Story. So those that have the Smithsonian Channel, mark your calendar.
