O’Connell, de Ravin Headline New Nora Roberts Adaptations

Lifetime has lined up some serious talent (and eye candy) for the first two (of four!) new TV-movie adaptations of Nora Roberts novels.Emilie de Ravin (Lost), Ivan Sergei (Jack & Jill) and Cybill Shepherd will star in High Noon, while Jerry O’Connell (Do Not Disturb Crossing Jordan), Lauren Stamile (Rose from Grey’s Anatomy) and Faye Dunaway lead the cast of Midnight Bayou, says The Hollywood Reporter. 

High Noon is about a hostage negotiator, Lt. Phoebe McNamara (de Ravin), who juggles her career with the raising of her young daughter and dealing with her agoraphobic mother (Shepherd). Phoebe becomes the object of affection of a bar owner (Sergei) and the target of a psychopathic killer – which is all in a day’s work over at Lifetime.

 

 

Midnight Bayou‘s centered around lawyer Declan Fitzpatrick (O’Connell) who impulsively gives up his settled life to buy a restored and most likely haunted plantation house near New Orleans. That’s right, he’ll be seeing dead people hanging out in his new pad. Luckily, he gets some help ghost whispering and uncovering dark secrets from a Cajun local (Stamile) and her grandmother (Dunaway).

 

High Noon was written by Terri Kopp and will be directed by Peter Markle, while Midnight Bayou penned by Stephen Tolkin and will be directed by Ralph Hemecker.

Will the ‘Missing Pieces’ Mobisodes be Included on Season 4?

Will the ‘Missing Pieces’ Mobisodes be Included on Season 4?

It’s been six months(!) since Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment announced the December 9th release – on both DVD and high-definition Blu-ray Disc – of Lost – The Complete 4th Season: The Expanded Experience. In the press release from the original announcement, a nice list of bonus material was mentioned. And in May we followed up to mention that additional extras would be included: “The Lost Flashbacks” (flashback sequences that didn’t air on the original TV broadcasts) and an “Oceanic Airlines Safety Guide”.

However, neither report was able to confirm whether the 13 installments of “Lost: Missing Pieces” would be included in the North American release of the 4th Season Set. As a reminder, these are “mobisodes”: short (1.5 to 3.5 minute-long) “webisodes” that were original distributed for viewing on a mobile phone (through Verizon), but they were later made available online (at ABC.com) as well. It has been said at various Lost fan sites that the foreign DVD releases, including the U.K. and in South America, were including the mobisodes. But for some reason the USA/Canadian information has not yet been clear on whether these are part of the sets!
