| USA Network upfront: Judy Davis confirmed for The Starter Wife
Tonight at sister network Bravo’s “Top Chef” star Tom Colicchio’s Craft restaurant in Century City, USA Network invited some of their favorite advertisers and reporters to the upfront presentation.
Craft is a stunning modernist restaurant that glowed in candlelight and featured the most amazing raw seafood bar with a myriad of delectable appetizers and desserts that flowed like the quality wine they poured all night. It was a great setting, with perfectly presented and prepared food and an ultra professional staff that attended to everyone.
Surrounded by USA stars like Debra Messing, Tony Shaloub, Tim Omundson, Jeffrey Donovan and Gabrielle Anwar among many network luminaries, NBC Universal cable chief Bonnie Hammer looked beautiful as she enthusiastically talked about the “Brandwidth” of the ratings ass-kickers - the USA Network.
The NBC cable wunderkind now boasts 27% original programming.
She noted that it was the company’s devotion to finding unique “characters” and great stories and talent in front of and behind the cameras that defined the success USA Network offered, compared to the competition.
USA has much to look forward to, but the nights big news came from Hammer herself, as “The Starter Wife” producers confirm that Judy Davis, the Emmy award winning (twice Oscar nominated) actress will join Debra in the cast for ten new episodes. Hallelujah.
I was also looking for Gigi Levangie, it was her book that was the genesis for the series, but alas was out of luck. She wasn’t there.
Messing is a lovely person, unpretentious and gorgeous in the classic yesteryear Hollywood way. She sat down to talk about the sudden news of Davis, and her over the moon joy that Judy would soon be back with her working.
“You know, it was never the intention for this to be a series initially, it wasn’t in my gameplan,” Messing shared.
“I couldn’t imagine doing this series without Judy. The mini-series was like a summer vacation, but now, the writers can take Molly and really get into her new life as a single mom, getting her back into the workforce, and all the people that will be in her life now.
The scenes with Molly and Joan (Davis) were so well done, and funny too, but there was a poignancy; I am just so happy about this news.”
What about Joe Mantegna? Messing gave me a very big smile.
“Well we are trying to get the entire original cast back, but yes I would love to tell you he is confirmed but so far, we are working on it.”
Tomorrow we will talk “Burn Notice”, “Psych,” “Monk” and a new series for this summer “In Plain Sight” a dramedy that rocks with actors Mary McCormack and Fred Weller. Weller spoke to me at length about his new role and what cool crew position he would trade places with, if he could.
Es genial que Judy Davis continue con su papel de Joan
|Well we are trying to get the entire original cast back|
Estaría muy bien que todos los actores y actrices que participaron en la miniserie aparecieran ahora en la serie
...aunque hay que tener en cuenta que algunos de ellos ahora están en otras series (Miranda Otto en Cashmere Mafia,Peter Jacobson en House,Stephen Moyer en True Blood,Joe Mantegna en Criminal Minds) y a lo mejor no pueden compaginar los dos proyectos
Por cierto,me he dado de cuenta de que en ningún artículo en el que se habla de la serie se menciona donde va a ser rodada
estoy convencida de que no se va a rodar en Australia como la miniserie,pero me parece extraño que no se haya mencionado el sitio del rodaje

| Days of our Lives actor gets cast on The Starter Wife
Blake Berris is known to daytime fans as Nick Fallon, a role he has played since November 7, 2006 on NBC’s Days of our Lives. This coming fall, however, the 23-year-old actor will be taking stab at primetime as he recurrently appears on USA Network’s The Starter Wife.
Premiering this October, The Starter Wife is a six-part miniseries that has recently been renewed as a regular series. Based on the New York bestselling novel by Gigi Levangie Grazer, the show sheds light on the concept of a starter marriage, focusing its attention to Will & Grace actress Debra Messing as Molly Kagan, the ex-wife of a Hollywood entertainment mogul who rebuilds her life after being left for a younger woman. It taps on the most delicious and dastardly details of a divorce and recovery, Hollywood style.
According to Soaps.com, not much has been revealed about Blake Berris’ storyline on The Starter Wife, except for the fact that he’ll be playing a character named Corey. But based on Berris’ chemistry with older women, seeing that his character on Days on our Lives got romantically involved with Julie Pinson’s Billie Reed, speculations that romance may be in the cards for Messing and the Days of our Lives actor are not that far.
