Nathan Fillion's Castle

"Serenity" - Arrivals
Whoo! Nathan Fillion is back on TV. Last year, his series, Drive, didn't even survive six airings when it was yanked off the air. He was also on Desperate Housewives last season, but I don't watch that show and didn't even watch it for him. But I'm glad he's back and so much in a better position since --- he's back with his own really interesting show.

Nathan Fillion will star in Castle on ABC. It should be airing next year.
“Castle” is described in the press notes as a comedic crime procedural about a famous mystery novelist, Nick Castle, who has gotten bored with his success. When a real-world copycat murderer starts staging scenes from Nick’s novels, he’s teamed with a female detective, and soon the sparks are flying. Castle is kept grounded by his Broadway diva mother, quick-witted teenage daughter, and his long-suffering ex-wife, who happens to be his editor. It stars Nathan Fillion as Castle, Stana Katic as Det. Kate Beckett, Molly Quinn as Alexis, Susan Sullivan as Martha, Monet Mazur as Gina and Ruben Santiago-Hudson. | LA TIMES
Along with Castle, ABC also has four other new series in line:
  • the remake of Rob Thomas' Cupid, a love story/comedy
  • The Unusuals, which is a comedy set in a police district
  • Better Off Ted, described as a satirical comedy (The Office?)
  • Single With Parents, starring Alyssa Milano
Let's hope these survive the cut and last longer than one season!
