I've been losing a lot of appointment TV lately, either because shows evolved in a direction I wasn't happy with, or because they went off the air altogether. I particularly mourn Leverage, Eureka, and Warehouse 13.
Which is why I'm absolutely tickled that the team who made Leverage, Dean Devlin and John Rogers, have been signed
to make a series out of the Librarian movies, which were sort of a cross between Warehouse 13 and nerdier Indiana Jones adventures, with Noah Wylie as the academic badass and Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin as the team running the shadowy artifact warehouse.
If you haven't seen any of them, I recommend Curse of the Judas Chalice for a marvelous pre-Castle Stana Katic as a torch singer / something else spoilery.
Anyway, Wylie, Newhart and Curtin will still be there, but the new badass is Rebecca Romijn (Mystique from the XMen movies and Alexis from Ugly Betty, both badasses in their own right). They're also going to have Christian Kane (Eliot from Leverage, Lindsey McDonald from Angel), Matt Frewer (Max Headroom, Jim Taggart from Eureka and Dr. Leekie from Orphan Black), and John Larroquette (Night Court, the John Larroquette Show, Boston Legal).
I simply could not be more squeeful about this.
