Who says Slattery will get you nowhere?
While Rizzoli & Isles keep Boston safe from crime, Bering & Lattimer keep Warehouse 13 on lockdown and Goren and Eames track down crooks in the Big Apple.

I've always imagined the hardest part of pitching a series to a network would be choosing just the right "It's like this successful thing meets this other successful thing!" portion of the sell. You'd think one would want to choose accurate examples, whilst remaining not ridiculous, so people will be assured that you're not an idiot and want to invest in your product. Then a week comes along where both a show described as "The Devil Wears Prada meets Taxi" and another show described as "part X-Files, part Raiders of the Lost Ark and part Moonlighting" are announced. All I got to say is I bet all my friends are sorry for laughing at my Hard Rain meets Spy Kids fan fiction now.
It is a Syfy-apalooza at DVD stores today, with two big shows releasing their latest seasons. Also, a '50s TV classic, a '90s TV hit and an '00s Internet sensation.
It's all about the new show developments today, and there's something for everyone, from bros to literary buffs. Some fabulous females are newly cast on shows, not including Paula Abdul, who continues to plague us with her bizarre sense of self-entitlement. Oh, and if you happen to spot that guy from Megan Wants a Millionaire, ball up your fists, keep those pearly whites hidden and call the cops, ASAP.
Assuming your brain has recovered from exposure to details of the Speidi wedding, take a break from the Monday blahs with these TV newsbites. There's some (mildly) good news for Deadwood fans, some bad news for fans of Sophie and Roommates (yes, those are TV shows), and some awesome news for fans of networks jumping on bandwagons!
