I've been listening to a few of the last 'Let's Do This' podcasts while I walk in Monroeville on weekends when some thoughts came into my head for a potential spinoff for Let's Do This as well as a spin-off for the Co-Host.
Before I begin, I just want to say that the photos I made are just test photos so excuse the shitiness of them.
So, now for the heads at Spill and especially Korey and Co-Host, I'm presenting two pitches for potential spinoffs:
Variety reports that the San Francisco-based Twitter has partnered with Reveille and Brillstein Entertainment to develop an unscripted TV series described as "putting ordinary people on the trail of celebrities in a revolutionary competitive format."
The project was announced with few details Monday by Reveille and Brillstein Entertainment. The series concept was created by novelist/screenwriter Amy Ephron, who will executive produce with Kevin Foxe and… Continue

The McG-directed film may get close to adding another $60 million over the four-day… Continue

The following info comes from Entertainment Weekly reporter Michael Ausiello regarding some Upfront news:
Several major upfront-week developments to report:

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC has opted against giving "Samantha Who?" a third season after all.
The series went into the weekend with high hopes to return after producers agreed to slash the show's budget. ABC Studios had hoped to trim as much as $500,000 per episode but couldn't quite reach the proposed number.
That, coupled with ABC's 10 pilot pickups in recent weeks, ultimately led to the show's demise.
Here's a potpourri of upfront news regarding cancellations and renewals:
"Nikki Finke reports that CBS has renewed Cold Case. Of all the longer-running CBS procedurals vying for renewal, Cold Case was the one I had the most doubt over outside of The Unit. Though compared with some of the renewal announcements on Friday from other networks, I suppose Cold Case seemed like a sure thing!"
Negotiations between NBC and CBS Television Studios are said to be at an impasse, leading to informed speculation that the show could be headed to the CBS Television Network.
NBC had been looking to bring back "Medium," but with a deal similar to what the network negotiated last year: A firm 13-episode pickup with an option to expand the order to 22 episodes later in the season. That's the deal NBC brokered with… Continue

NBC and Warner Bros. have hammered out a deal that will bring back Chuck, Sarah et al for a third season of at least 13 episodes, sources tell TVGuide.com.
As reported on Sunday, this new life does come with a price, however. Or, specifically a lower one. Chuck, which had already trimmed its production budget going into Season 2, will now need to be even leaner and meaner for its next cycle. That could result in a scenario similar to the one… Continue
Okay, it's not really an upfront update BUT it does revolve around a series premiering in the fall.

In a move that surprised almost no one, FOX renewed mystery series "Bones" today.
But according to EW.com's Michael Ausiello, the network has picked the show up for not just one, but two additional seasons.
The move gives fans two more years to wonder whether Temperance "Bones" Brennan and Seeley Booth will realize their mutual attraction. Of course, considering Booth's state at the end of the season finale, it may take two years… Continue
