New Hellcats promo - I worship at the television altar — LiveJournal
New Hellcats promo
I found a promo for Hellcats on YouTube that focuses on the plot rather than the cheerleading. Check it out!

"From the producer of Smallville!" Yay for Tom!

"College" Trailer:


The "TV to Talk About" promo shown at the CW Upfronts on Thursday:

In other Hellcats news, Ben Browder has decided to pass on the series. Bummer. :(

Okay, I wasn't too pleased with the clip (the cheerleading coach doesn't seem to be that great an actress), but the trailers look much better. Fingers crossed!

I'm notoriously easy, but I like what I've seen so far a lot. I loved both Aly and Ashley already, and you know how Matt won me over on Harper's Island, so it didn't take much to push me into the yes column. :) I hope it's good!

Hellcats has Ashley so I'm watching no matter what but Ben Browder passing is upsetting. I'm just happy that it's because he's got some films he wants to do.

I love that the Supernatural stuff in that CW promo is all Jensen and Jared making weird faces. lol

I'm excited to see Ashley play something different. I've only seen her in the HSM movies and a few episodes of her Disney Channel show. I love her, but I'm really interested to see what she does with a more serious role, and a character who isn't painted with such broad strokes.

I was having a hard time visualizing Ben in that role, the "bad" guy of the show, but I would have loved to see what he did with it, and I'm sorry that now we'll never even get to see his performance in the Pilot. I also read on Deadline.com that they might be "retooling" that character.

The Supernatural bits in that promo were great! I hope the new season has a little of that lightheartedness, this one just about killed me. But in a good way, of course. :) I liked how the Smallville scenes were all Clark looking heroic. Plus the DP kiss from Crossfire was in there, in that first flash of frames. :)

Yup, I have yet to see Ashley tackle anything too dramatic and I'm hoping this show gives her the chance. I think she's got a lot of talent and potential.

Hopefully the original Pilot will make it's way online at some point. I'd like to see Ben in it. I wonder how they're going to "retool" the character and who they'll cast.

LOVED all the shots of Clark (would've loved more of course). And I didn't even notice the flash of the Crossfire kiss! lol I did see a flash of Silver Banshee when she was glowing which made me laugh.

I agree about Ashley, I think she's going to be great. I find her, and Aly, captivating.

I wonder if they decided the coach character was too skeevy? In the sides he hit on one of the cheerleaders. Or maybe they're going to go younger. This is, after all, the CW. :P

Oh, the only reason I know the Crossfire kiss was in there is because I used Zamzar to download the clip from YouTube so I could watch it frame-by-frame. :) I was curious to see what was in that flash of images.

Great info! We really appreciate how much you do for us!

I'm not much into the cheerleading world, but I'll give Hellcats a try because of Tom. I hope it does well so that he's happy!

That CW promo has too little SV in it. Thankfully the little it has is all Clark.

Awww, thank you, Carol! *hugs*

Tom really does seem happy these days, doesn't he? The Upfronts must have been a real triumph for him: representing not only Smallville but the new Friday night programming block, commanding the stage on his own, and now executive producing both Smallville and one of only two new pilots chosen for the fall season, the very first project from his new company. Wow. He said in one of those video interviews that you can't have it all, but if that's true, no one comes closer than he does. :) I'm so thrilled for him, and so proud.

I agree about the promo. But I'm thankful it's not worse. I remember seeing one with just a single glimpse of Smallville in it. And if they're going to have so little of the show, it's good that they focus completely on Clark.

Oooh, thank you for that Hellcats trailer - I find myself much more interested now. Even the cheerleading practice clip has grown on me with some understanding of the context. Actually looking forward to this!

I'm intrigued by what Tom said attracted him to the project: sacrifice, and what you're willing to give up to get what you want in life. It's obviously not a lightweight show about the glitz and glamour of being popular and pretty.

That said, I'm a sucker for a killer dance number. :) I think the show looks like fun, with enough bite to keep it interesting. And after seeing the cast in action in these clips, I like them even better. Tom has assembled a great team!

No Ben? Sadness.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: May 23rd, 2010 01:06 am (UTC) (Link)
I know. :( But the Stargate sites are reporting that he has several film roles coming up, so that's good. It's been too long since I saw him in something new!

With Claudia? *draws sparkly hearts around them*

That would be amazing! I didn't see any details about his upcoming projects, so I have no idea.
