I promise, I’m still alive!! I’ve just re-coded the gallery theme (I was annoyed with the original coding to no end) and I’ve just added a couple promotional photos and movie stills for Hornet’s Nest into the gallery before I cap and sort Alcatraz episodes!
Also, don’t forget that Hornet’s Nest will be premiering Saturday night (March 31st) at 8pm ET on TNT!
How I Met Your Mother alum Robbie Amell has been tapped to play the co-lead opposite Colin Ferguson in Bill Lawrence’s semi-autobiographical Fox comedy pilot Like Father.
The premise: When Van Lyons’ (Ferguson) wife dies, he shows up at son Will’s (Amell) college campus for a prolonged visit, hoping to get his son to open up and get on with his grieving.
Amell, the cousin of Vampire Diaries alum and newly-christened Green Arrow Stephen Amell, is coming off of guest stints on Revenge and CSI: NY. His additional credits include the Scooby-Doo live-action TV-movies (playing head-sleuth Fred) and Nickelodeon’s hit kiddie show True Jackson, VP.
The locally filmed TV movie “Hornet’s Nest” will air at 8 p.m. March 31, according to TNT officials.
Sherry Stringfield (“ER”) and Virginia Madsen (“Sideways”) star in the movie, an adaptation of the Charlotte-based novel of the same name by Patricia Cornwell.
“Hornet’s Nest” filmed last December at the StarNews Media newsroom on 17th Street and other Port City locations, such as the New Hanover County courthouse.
The movie features reporter Andy Brazil (Robbie Amell), Police Chief Judy Hammer (Madsen) and her top deputy, Virginia West (Stringfield). The story begins with everyone desperate to solve the latest crisis: a serial killer targeting out-of-town businessmen. Hammer and West make the murder investigation their top priority.
“Hornet’s Nest” will premiere as part of the TNT Mystery Movie Night, the network’s new film series adapted from contemporary crime novels, said Gina McKenzie, a vice president of public relations for Turner Broadcasting System Inc. TNT is a division of Turner.
