So, Last Night in Burbank, They Apparently Shot That Big D Pilot. Wonder How That Went.
Andrea Anders may not be working for Veridian Dynamics much longer, dang.
So, odd coincidence. Was reading this morning about the governor making it a bit easier for out-of-state filmmakers to shoot in Texas when it occurred to me that Big D -- the Warner Bros. Television-produced would-be sitcom for CBS that's set in Dallas -- might ougtha be shooting its pilot right about now. And, sure enough, I came across this cached offer for tickets to a taping: Just last night at 8 p.m. C.S.T. on the Warner Bros. Burbank lot, folks got their first taste of what's no doubt a very high-larious interpretation of what it's like to live, yee-haw, in Dallas. A reminder of the plotline, for those trying to forget:
In this new CBS comedy set in Dallas, Deanna Dunagan plays a Texan Southern belle who welcomes her son back home from New York and meddles in his wife's life. The matriarch's daughter is a tad sensitive and thrives on drama.
From the looks of the most recent cast list, Missi Pyle and Chris Parnell are still there -- promising-ish. But there is this good news-bad news note for those of us struggling to find something decent to watch in prime-time: Andrea Anders has been added to the cast. She's Linda , incidentally, the love interest-slash-wacky sidekick on ABC's Better Off Ted , which, like all great and misunderstood shows, is posting submarginal ratings and no doubt on its way to premature cancellation, if we're to read anything into Anders's latest attempt to find a show better than ... lesse here ... Joey .
