TV NEWS: "Make It or Break It," "10 Things I Hate About You," "Legally Blondes," "Telephathic," & "Dorothy Gale"

Here's a list of new shows for Summer 2009 and Fall 2009:

• "Make It or Break It" (also known as "Perfect 10"): a teen drama about competitive gymnastics and training for the Olympics, starring newcomers Chelsea Hobbs and Ayla Kell, and Candace Cameron Bure (DJ from "Full House") and Peri Gilpin (Roz from "Frasier"). [ABC Family, June 22]

• "10 Things I Hate About You": It's an adaptation of the 1999 teen rom-com that starred Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Larisa Oleynik. [ABC Family, July 7]

• "Legally Blondes": a spinoff of Reese Witherspoon's franchise that'll star twins. It's a special mini-series that'll only last ten days. [ABC Family, August 1-10]

• Nickelodeon has two new pilots. One is an untitled comedy that focuses on two teenage surfers, and the other is "Telepathic," which is about two dorky teenage boys and a popular girl who survive high school because of their telepathic powers.

• NBC has an interesting new series called "Dorothy Gale." Yeah, that Dorothy. They're modernizing the Wizard of Oz tale and transforming it into a story about a Kansas girl who "tries to tackle modern-day Manhattan (her version of the Emerald City)." She finds a job in the art world, where she's employed by a wicked witch boss. If produced properly, it won't end up being a terrible cross between Coyote Ugly and Devil Wears Prada.


  1. Lots of exciting news. Odd but exciting.

  2. Make It or Break It is not about competitive ice skating but competitive gymnastics.
