Good news for Hellcats!
James Hibberd from The Live Feed is reporting that the CW has ordered six additional scripts for Hellcats! It's not a full season pick-up yet, but it's very encouraging news. Congratulations to the cast and crew, and to Tom!


Did you know there is now an icon community for Hellcats on LJ? Check it out! hellcats_icons

\o/ This is such fantastic news! So happy for everyone involved. Way to go, Tom! :)

Oh, you can say that again ;) Just posted some of my caps on my LJ, too, couldn't resist *g*

I hope Tom is celebrating tonight!

All bias aside, I really did think Gale was wonderful last night. He's such a good actor, and so compelling to watch. And I'm really interested in his storyline. Unlike that whole Vanessa/Derrick/Red triangle. :P

It cracks me up that Julian is evidently a sci-fi geek. :) As soon as he told Marti the name of the case, I said to myself, "Kobayashi? As in Kobayashi Maru?" I just thought it was some inside joke by the writer, not part of the plot!

I love the pretties you posted. :)

I think it will do well internationally - I've acquired a few new UK twitter-friends since the Con and they're very keen on it. Cheerleading seems exotic, I guess?

The show is doing well in Australia, from what I've read, and I did see someone say they don't really have cheerleaders there. The students who have encountered filming on campus in Vancouver have also commented on what an odd sight the cheerleaders are. Are they mostly unique to the US, like American football?

Currently I don't think there are any plans to broadcast Hellcats in the UK. I saw one station's response to a viewer query, saying they had considered it and decided to pass.

Thanks for sharing your perspective! I think cultural differences are fascinating.

I have watched all the epis so far, and for me it is not really about the cheerleading. I love the routines because I have always been a big fan of gymnastics and tumbling, but I am really enjoying the storyline, the fun, the characters... a bit of a whole package.

I like the whole package, too. I'm captivated by the relationships, I like the combination of dramatic and comedic elements, I love the dancing and the songs, the stunts take my breath away, I've quickly become invested in several of the characters, and I think the cast is phenomenal. The show has its cheesy moments, but I don't care because it's just so much fun to watch! :) I think Tom should be very proud.

Very happy to hear this!

Gale Harold on my TV screen is pure heaven. I'm just saying.I completely agree

I thoroughly enjoyed him on Wednesday & can't wait to see more. :D

Go Hellcats! :D

He really was good, and I like his dynamic with Marti so far. I hope he's in lots of episodes.

How much did you love Ashley Tisdale? I need Drunk!Savannah icons!

I am loving Ashley Tisdale too, Drunk!Savannah was hilarious!

I love her more with each new episode. I am completely charmed.

Great news, thanks! Hellcats seems to be doing fine compared to most other CW shows this week. There was stiff competition this Wednesday by the season premieres on the major networks, yet Hellcats still had 2.3 million viewers. I assume everything above 2 million is rather good for the CW. They would be stupid not to order more episodes.

I´m so happy for Tom. He now has yet another good reason to party this weekend. Go Tom! :)

I think the show is doing well for the CW, and I hope its audience continues to grow. IMO, it's been getting better with each new episode.

I hope Tom is pleased with the success Hellcats is enjoying so far. I think he and his team have crafted a show that is perfect for the CW.

Is Gale Harold from the South? Because I was detecting some Southern drawls when he spoke, but wasn't sure if he was putting it on for the character or if he naturally speaks like that.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: September 26th, 2010 11:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
He is from the south, but usually there is no trace of an accent in his voice when he acts. When he talked to Carina MacKenzie about Hellcats, he said he added a bit of an accent for Julian, and was even worried it was too much. You can watch the video of the interview HERE. At one point he puts on a much broader accent than what he uses in the show. :)
