  • According to The Hollywood Reporter Executive Producer and showrunner Marc Guggenheim has left ABC’s FlashForward, a new borderline sciffy series I’ve been digging immensely.  David Goyer, who along with Brannon Braga is co-creator of the show based on Robert J. Sawyer’s 1999 novel, has been handed the reins.  SciFi Wire gives the change a thumbs up, with analysis. Pay no mind to the haters in the comments section- it’s a decent bit of television with all sorts of potential for innovative storytelling and should be checked out ASAP.
  • Harlan Ellison’s lawsuit against CBS/Paramount has concluded to his apparent satisfaction, with an “agreed-upon statement” from both parties forthcoming in the next few days.  Wait for it.
