Chase critical of Community 

Chevy Chase has dissed Community, saying that it was a “big mistake” for him to join the series in the first place. “The hours are hideous, and it’s still a sitcom on television, which is probably the lowest form of television. That’s my feeling about it,” he said. “Then they hired me and I just sort of hung around because I have three daughters and a wife, and I figured out I might as well make some bread, every week, so I can take care of them in the way they want.”

5:30pm Sunday, August 5 on TV2

The OC’s Rachel Bilson stars as a city slicker headed for a rude awakening in the deep South, in TV2 ‘s new drama Hart Of Dixie.

Everything always goes according to plan for Dr Zoe Hart (Bilson). Gorgeous, privileged and talented, she is on her way to becoming a heart surgeon, just like her father. But to get an important fellowship, she has to take a job as a general practitioner for a year. This lifelong New Yorker takes a chance on an offer from a southern country doctor, packs her bags, slips on her stilettos and leaves Manhattan for life in BlueBell, Alabama.

Zoe feels the culture shock of her small-town surroundings immediately, but the real shock comes when she learns that the doctor who invited her to BlueBell has passed away and left her with his half of the medical practice. His old-school partner, Dr Brick Breeland (Tim Matheson, The West Wing), is determined to chase her out of town and his daughter, southern belle Lemon Breeland (Jaime King, Sin City), is only too happy to help.

But as relationships are forged and secrets are revealed, it seems this is just the beginning of a new life in the South for Dr Zoe Hart.

Following on from last night’s post about the new shows coming to TV One, here’s what’s instore for TV2 in 2012.

First off, a rebrand.  If my assumptions are correct, think the TV One logo but take the “One” out of the circle and put the current “2” inside it.  This would certainly bring some consistency between the channels.

Shortland Street will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2012 while Go Girls will be back for a fourth season.  The trailer shows Kevin returning from Thames to tell the girls that he thinks he’s just left his wife.  Considering Zoe Cramond (Amanda) is now a regular on Packed to the Rafters in Australia, that’s probably why.

TV2 seemed to be a bit light on the big new dramas to fill the gaps of final seasons of Desperate Housewives and Grey’s Anatomy but there are some good new shows in there. Continue reading »
