tv news to that makes me happy


I'm such a nerd. I'm stuck in my office and combing through my twitter feed watching the info coming out of the TCA.

Things that make me beyond happy:

@denisemartin: A Ricky Gervais/ Stephen Merchant animated series is on the way -- why can't every network be like HBO??

@MoRyan: HBO TCA session: The Pacific, war series, debuts March; Treme, New Orleans show frm David Simon, debuts April. 3rd seasn In Treatment likely

@MoRyan: At HBO TCA session: Execs say they want a 3rd season of Flight of the Conchords. "I'm sure that'll happen" when they are ready, sez Plepler

I hope this is just the beginning of more good tv news.

MY BoB COMMS ARE LETTING ME DOWN!

So thank you and Mo Ryan for the air date for The Pacific. I knew 2010, but I didn't know March! BRB rescheduling my entire spring.

And can I just say STEPHEN MERCHANT IS ALREADY AN ANIMATED CHARACTER, so I'm not exactly sure what they're talking about. :-)

Well to be honest, I posted the news about the date about 5 minutes after I saw the tweet. So maybe their post the news soon. Obviously, like you, I am eagerly anticipating that one.

If they can capture a fraction of the magic that they produced in BoB... it will be amazing.

And you are completely right about Mr. Merchant.

Wow, cool! The Emmy nominations surely helped with that thinking. ;-)

STEPHEN MERCHANT IS ALREADY AN ANIMATED CHARACTER,
Mary makes an excellent point. :-)

You might be interested in knowing that: Larry David said there would be a "Seinfeld" reunion of sorts. As Alan Sepinwall notes in this piece, the TV version of Larry David will agree to stage a reunion of the iconic comedy. "All four 'Seinfeld' castmembers -- Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Richards -- will play themselves in multiple episodes, and the season finale will feature extensive snippets of the show-within-the-show," Sepinwall wrote.

That should also make for good television.

Yes, I see that as having a great deal of potential.
