Via dawnybee: Michael's pilot is no longer shooting on Monday. Are they re-writing? Re-casting? Will Derek lose his wife & baby?

(This isn't a bad sign - pilots frequently get rescheduled. But I'm aching to hear more about the show, especially about Michael's character.)

Michael's pal Deborah Gibson is holding a benefit for a scholarship fund for girls this Tuesday! It's called "An Evening of Electric Youth"! Michael's attending, along with Scott Bakula, the New Kids on the Block and various other celebs! Will Michael sing? Pose in the middle of the New Kids? At the very least, we'll hopefully get some new photos of him!

Here's the link:

Did you watch Scott on "Chuck"? He's still scorchingly hot - my crush bloomed all over again. We absolutely need a pic of him with Michael!

I don't watch "Chuck" but my nephew does so I saw clips of him. :) Scott was one of the main reasons I stuck it out with "Enterprise" even if it did get goofy towards the end.

I've never seen Enterprise but I used to love Quantum Leap, even though some episodes gave me nightmares as a kid!

Busting in to say, you, too? I had the biggest crush on him when Quantum Leap was on! I bought all the seasons on DVD. I loved seeing him show up on Chuck, especially as his dad! I was also happy that his character turned out to be so much more than he first seemed. And how much did you love it when he said, "Oh, boy"? Squee! *is a dork*

My husband calls him Scott Spatula. I think he's jealous. :D

That was fantastic! I Squuee-d too!

Even though they mussed him up, he's so ridiculously attractive that he didn't make a convincing dead-beat!

I saw that Justin Adler has left the project. I'm thinking that can't be good. *is worried* :(

Moses Port and David Guarascio have been brought in to replace him and I loved "Alien in America" so hopefully....it won't suck badly.

I liked "Aliens in America" too....I wonder if this change at the helm means it'll be a single-camera show like "A in A"? I actually prefer that to a studio audience show, but I'm not sure which is more expensive?

Also wonder if the "Arrested Development" producer is still on board?

Well I just got another email and the taping is now set for the 29th and it's now titled "The Untitled Family Project".

But single camera is actually more expensive than the the multi I think mostly because when you're shooting on a multi-cam it's on digital and while it is cheaper than tape or film, the risk of shooting is longer because people take more time and takes. Also, with the single cam, it's an opportunity to move from the studio to outdoors--you can move the action around--and that adds up: permits, location securing. But an easier explanation may be that networks are thinking people want the traditional format because it's a throwback and they're seeing success w/ multi camera shows taped before an audience like "Three and a Half Men" and "The Big Bang Theory".

/whew :)

Maybe tonight or Monday another update regarding who remains will be posted on Variety or Hollywood Reporter.

Thanks for all the updates! I'm surprised they'll be ready to go by the 29th, with such a big change at the top.

it's now titled "The Untitled Family Project".
Catchy!

The shooting on location aspect is one of the reasons I prefer multi-camera (all those great locations on "Arrested Dev.") Also, I just think it makes for funnier, faster comedy - I recently saw an episode of "Everybody Hates Chris" where they did a send-up of the Cosby Show and used a studio audience; I'd forgotten how waiting for the laughs slows things down so much. But I'm sure budget issues are paramount right now.

If there's a cast-shuffle, hope Mikey survives!

Oh, I loved that show! Thanks for the news! Who knows, maybe it will turn out to be a better fit for Michael's style of comedy. *looks for the silver lining*

I hope Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development) is still in board.

Must be weird for the cast, all these changes.

Oh dear. Thanks for the update. I guess we can quit calling it the "Untitled Justin Adler project" then.

Hope this isn't causing stress for Michael.

Me, too. I hope it's smooth sailing from here on out. I can't wait to hear about the taping from the lucky fangirls who attend!

They've locked in the cast so there's a commitment to film a pilot at least....but it can't be nice for the actors to have lost their "captain."

Eeep! These changes to Michael's pilot are making me nervous.

But the potential for new Michael photos and possibility of singing cheers me up! He was so cute with Deborah Gibson last time!

I know. Does this put future shirtlessness at risk?

A Debbie-duet is an exciting prospect!

The tickets are actually free! So the audience members will get emailed when the taping is rescheduled.
