There are a few bits and pieces to report on the forthcoming NBC drama Kings
. Firstly NBC's latest schedule
has the show lined up for the 10pm Sunday slot in Winter 2009. It also has it lined up for possible "encores" next summer. What's unclear is how long Kings
' initial broadcast will be. Reuters
are claiming that the whilst this was originally just a two-hour pilot, "NBC decided to proceed with a full series order after executives saw (some) footage".
There are also two script reviews by industry insiders Brian Ford Sullivan
and James Hibberd
. Sullivan is left "confused" by the programme's alternative universe, although he does admire its ambition. Hibberd is more positive, although rightly cautious until he's seen what the director does with the script.
Lastly, David Dunlap
reports on the filming of a scene incorporating the Columbus Monument.
