Family Guy will have a Star Trek: TNG reunion next month (March 29).
The Next Generation crew, comprised of Patrick Stewart, Levar Burton, Gates McFadden, Michael Dorn, Wil Wheaton, Denise Crosby, Marina Sirtis, Brent Spiner and Jonathan Frakes, will lend their voices to the FOX show.
This reminds me a lot of Futurama‘s Where No Fan Has Gone Before albeit with a newer crew.
Meanwhile, we continue on our pilot news with The CW greenlighting the Melrose Place pilot, penned by Smallville‘s Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer and directed by Davis Guggenheim, who has previously directed episodes for, wait for it, 24, The Unit and Deadwood.
The first actor cast is Greek‘s Michael Rady.
Speaking of, no surprises there, but The CW renewed six of its shows, including 90210, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, Supernatural and Smallville.
ABC’s Ab Fab pilot also has some news, with Back To You‘s James Burrows set to direct the premiere episode (as well as NBC’s 100 Questions for Charlotte Payne‘s pilot), and The Unit‘s Zosia Mamet set to play Eddie’s teen daughter. Barbershop‘s Toni Trucks will also join the cast as Eddie’s assistant.
Lipstick Jungle‘s Lindsay Price joins Jaime Ray Newman on The Witches of Eastwick to play one of the three lead witches.
Numb3rs‘ Lou Diamond Phillips, Push‘s Ming-Na, Smallville‘s Elyse Levesque and Alaina Huffman will in the meantime star in Sci Fi’s Stargate Universe, slated to premiere in October.
Can you feel the rush?
UPDATE: I just learned that Pirates of the Caribbean‘s Gore Berbinski is set to direct a Universal live-action movie based on Hasbro’s Clue board game.
Oh please God, not again.
